  1. Totally agree. I have never been onboard with the idea of Carisi being ADA for that very reason. More Carisi, not less! SVU has always been more about the cop side of the story, increasingly so as the seasons have gone by, so I don't want PS/Carisi "demoted," as it were, by becoming ADA. Also, honestly, the cop side of the story interests me more than the courtroom side, so I hope Carisi is staying a detective. PS/Carisi came about during Leight's reign, and I believe he likes and understands the character, definitely more than Eid and Chernuchin ever did, so I'm still hopeful he'll do right by him. And it would totally be absurd to "promote" Carisi to ADA and leave the squad as a Lieutenant, a Sergeant, and one detective. For all of Manhattan! They'd have to bring on another detective, then there'd go the money they saved by firing PW. Yeah, this viewer is enthusiastic about Leight's return, too. Agree, the blurb for the ep doesn't sound interesting, but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt because I was never bored by Leight's eps. And Ian McShane is a pretty good get.
  2. That is my guess, as well, but maybe they'll use the opportunity to bring back one or two of the former ADAs for a guest appearance.
  3. Just a couple articles with some nice photos of the cast beginning to shoot 21, though nothing revelatory about plot. MH, KG, Ice-T are all on hand, though no sign of PS, which displeases me. Peter Gallagher is there, though, looking mighty fine. https://okmagazine.com/photos/mariska-hargitay-scenes-law-and-order-svu-21st-season-pics/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7251081/Mariska-Hargitay-hugs-Law-Order-SVU-castmate-Peter-Gallagher-film-Ice-T.html

    Law & Order: SVU in the Media

    Sheila! That was her name. Yeah, I think she was just an emotionally damaged woman who needed a doctor rather than jailtime. Maybe they gave her extra credit because BS is a name actress and her "villainy" was directed at our beloved Benson personally. But I can think of far worse than her. The two teenage girls who tortured and killed the little boy in Lost Traveller, for instance, or Brad Garrett's prison guard or Johnny D.

    12 Best Law & Order: SVU Baddies of All Time I would definitely dispute some of these. Some of them I don't even remember. Brooke Shields, I can't even remember her character's name, that's how impactful she was to me. Hey, I say, let her keep Noah.

    Law & Order: SVU in the Media

    Looks like it! And I see our uncredited writer, Mariska Hargitay, is front and center in the pic. I don't know any of the names, except Warren Leight and Julie Martin, of course, but I've never paid much attention to the writers' credits on the show. I'm still cautiously optimistic about 21, because of WL, though I may be at a table for one.

    S01.E10: We Are Gone

    Season 2 will have a totally different story and cast (and creative team), with The Terror now just an umbrella title for an anthology series. There's information and a trailer for the new season in the Media thread. Agreed, on both counts. Season 1 had amazing sets and cinematography, and the courage of these men made their ultimate fate all the more devastating.

    Media for The Terror

    Yes, I thought Season 1 was so well done that it's disappointing that the creative team is different for Season 2. (I wonder what the original team is working on now.) Still, the setting and subject matter is interesting to me. I'm definitely in for Season 2 and hopeful. We'll see!

    Show Wishlist: What We'd Like To See

    Hm, reading that, it sounds like an ep of the mothership that I vaugely remember, but it's been so long since I've seen it. Maybe they did their iteration there?

    Law & Order: SVU in the Media

    Yeah, when I saw that, I thought it was a weird idea. I know the television landscape has changed, but a rival networks crossover? These guys know they're in competition with each other, don't they? If it happens, I hope they just leave SVU out of it. I don't watch any of these other shows, for reasons, and the crossover ep hasn't happened yet that's made me watch the other show as a consequence. Generally, I don't like crossovers. Too many characters leading to too much story dilution and not enough time for the characters I am interested in. And, like @Xeliou66, I hate Chicago P.D. Those are some bad cops, right there.

    S17.E14: Finale

    Listening to them, though, I wasn't sure if some of those comments weren't about the model on the runway, rather than the design she was wearing. That said, anyone going into the finale thinking Hester had a lock on the win is understandable. The editing of the season increasingly seemed like it was headed in that direction. Me, I'm likening Sebastian's win to Dmitry's - both obvious winners from the start so the show had to play it cool towards them to misdirect and try to keep some suspense going.

    S17.E14: Finale

    Last week, the guest judge said that Sebastian's mini collection was ready for Fashion Week and Elaine - Elaine! - said his skill level was a cut above. This week, they had virtually no criticism for his full collection, except they questioned his choice for the first design down the runway. (That's like saying why watch Godfather 1 first when Godfather 2 is better. Apples and oranges, people! It's all good.) I've come to think their harping on his lack of a "story" for his designs was because they literally had nothing to criticize in the clothes themselves, and this was like that. I've thought he was clearly so much better than the other designers from Week 1 and that opinion has never changed for me. If he hadn't won, I would've had to wash my hands of what would be an entirely nonsensical fashion world. As to Garo and Hester, I did like some of Garo's designs and, surprisingly, some pieces in Hester's collection. (My order would've been Sebastian, Garo, Hester.) But, glory, Hester was getting full of herself, making it to the finale. That is an accomplishment, yes, but... I dunno, I personally feel Hester (and the judges) overestimate both her originality and the size of her market. In an earlier ep, she said she wanted to clothe "the world." Aside from making me lament that interstellar travel isn't a thing yet, I did roll my eyes at that. I cannot believe that there is a large market for Hester's designs. Her designs have always looked more costume-y to me than Garo's, if the judges want to throw that criticism around, as well as junior. I did love the little talk Christian had with the designers before they left the workroom for the last time. That is as much warmth and sincerity as I've ever seen from him, and it was a good look. Was Tessa there with the other eliminated designers? I missed her if she was. And whatever happened to Mimi? She kind of disappeared these last couple eps. ETA: Saw Tessa on the rewatch, when they announced the winner.

    S17.E13: One Elle of a Day

    I did. Hee! That would be me, too, but Sebastian did end up helping in some way. I couldn't see exactly what was happening, but it looked like he cut something away from Hester's hand, then Garo took over checking out the damage. I agree, Garo, heck all three of them seem like nice folk. For me, I wish I liked Hester's aesthetic better, but, yeah, no.

    S17.E14: Finale

    I would be much more okay with that than a Hester win. Still, I'm hoping hard for Sebastian!
