  1. Sonya Paxton was just horrible: rude, unprofessional and a total joke of a character. I loved seeing her get her comeuppance with her courtroom meltdown and I felt nothing when she was killed off in season 12. The show was just ridiculous in those seasons and the revolving door of ADA’s didn’t help.

    Law & Order

    Rubber Room was a terrific finale IMO. A great episode, with a compelling plot from start to finish. I loved McCoy blowing up at the union shill, that was an epic scene. I also have to say I was glad that the grand jury shut down Cutter’s attempt to search the phones of hundreds of students, that would’ve been a gross violation of privacy rights and I was glad that got shut down and they had to find another way. Lupo and Bernard’s takedown of the shooter at the end was exciting. And I loved the final scene of the series where all of the characters were at the party for Van Buren, it was nice to see all of the main characters in the final scene together. I liked that ME Rodgers was at the party for Van Buren as well, and it was great to see Skoda helping to consult on the case. I liked that the finale wasn’t over the top and didn’t include drastic changes in the lives of each character, they would just continue on doing what they were doing, the viewers just wouldn’t see it anymore. It was realistic and fitting for L&O. I thought it was an outstanding episode and a great way to end the show, while I hated that L&O didn’t get to season 21, especially since it was producing excellent episodes and was a very high quality show in the final seasons, Rubber Room was an excellent way to end the show IMO.

    Law & Order

    I saw Chosen today, and I wanted to slap Serena once again in this one, she had a lot of nerve to call McCoy a bigot for simply stating the facts, her whining was really tiresome. The bigots in this episode were the defendant, his wife and Judge Miller, I thought McCoy’s question to the wife about whether she would think the murder was okay if the victim was Jewish was a great question, and Miller clearly was biased towards the defendant because they were both Jewish, I loved McCoy going off on his sorry ass. McCoy did a great job IMO and I was glad that the jury saw through Dworkin’s defense and convicted the scumbag. I do love the episode, Dworkin is one of my favorite defense lawyers, he’s extremely entertaining and clever (I loved that they brought him back to SVU last season), and any Briscoe/Green investigation is entertaining to watch, it was funny at the start when the Wall Street douchebags who broke into the car and found the body said they weren’t common criminals and then when Briscoe found out they worked on Wall Street he quipped “so that part about you being common criminals isn’t far off”. Branch’s story about the judge asking him to define strict scrutiny was funny as well. But the defendant, his wife, Judge Miller and Serena all really piss me off in this one.

    Law & Order

    I saw Tragedy on Rye tonight, what an epically stupid ending, so just because someone stopped making phone calls to the victim when the victim died means he’s the killer? That isn’t nearly enough evidence to bust down someone’s door and arrest them, especially when 3 other people had already been convicted of the crime!! And why hadn’t anyone gone over the phone records until after the verdict?! STUPID!! And conveniently the guy who stopped calling the victim had the murder weapon right there in his house so it was all wrapped up nice and neat. What an epically stupid ending. Serena was whiny as always, even if she was right in the end, and Branch was just a blowhard who refused to admit he could be wrong and instead made wiseass remarks. I don’t dislike Branch the way others do, I don’t care for his politics but I don’t mind him, but god he was irritating in this one. Next up was The Ring, not a bad episode but not great either, it was interesting how 9/11 was directly tied into the plot. Branch was obnoxious once again IMO, spewing his political positions about Roe vs Wade that had nothing to do with the case, and I was glad that McCoy shut him up by telling him he could rewrite judicial history when he was appointed to the Supreme Court. It was another episode where they arrested the defendant based on flimsy evidence, Hagen never should’ve been arrested on the evidence they had, and he turned out to be innocent, Hagen would’ve if they had looked deeper into the case they would’ve realized it was the fiancé who was the guilty party.

    Stone will be in episode 22.

    S20.E21: Exchange

    I hope there’s more to this episode than St Olivia saving the world. No Stone sucks. The last 2 episodes have been bad, hopefully this will be better.

    Law & Order

    Dignity enrages me every time I make the mistake of watching that pile of shit. I love season 20 but Dignity is probably the second worst episode in L&O history. It was nothing more than outrageous anti choice propaganda. Bernard’s comment about rape victims giving birth was almost as bad as Serena defending the parents who sold their kid to a pedophile IMO, Bernard had never shown any signs of being an anti choice fanatic and him spouting extremist rhetoric was highly OOC. There were no strong pro choice arguments made. Cutter comparing the defendant to John Brown was ridiculous as well and I was glad Jack called him on it. And yeah the whole testimony from the witness who decided to have the baby that died after less than a day was ridiculous bullshit, giving birth just so a baby can suffer for a few hours and then die is NOT more humane than having an abortion, and that should’ve been pointed out. That whole testimony was 100% irrelevant to the case and should never have been allowed. Dignity was crap all around, I don’t know why I ever watch that episode.

    ADA Peter Stone: Mothership Legacy Kid

    All of this seems to be proof that it isn’t the writers who are behind this: I’m certain it’s Mariska who is. It will be interesting to see if more comes out after the season ends or after the show ends.

    ADA Peter Stone: Mothership Legacy Kid

    Interesting, so it would appear PW is still on good terms with some of the writers.

    Law & Order

    I agree that the cold opens were borrowed from CI, I preferred the openings of someone stumbling upon a crime scene but I didn’t mind the cold opens we got in the final seasons. The episode you are talking about is Zero, they were discussing the victims ultra environmentally friendly lifestyle. Van Buren’s delivery was great in that scene.

    ADA Peter Stone: Mothership Legacy Kid

    Agreed 100% with all of this, but he earned the wrath of the very vocal SJW nutjobs on social media, and I think Mariska took notice of this and since most of the people bashing Winchester make up the Mariska/Benson fanclub, I think she played a role in getting Winchester fired. I loved Stone telling Benson to keep her bleeding heart out of the courtroom as well, it was basically the only good moment of the episode, and I think that just earns him more wrath from the Benson fans, because he stands in Benson’s way sometimes. It’s just a theory, but I think Mariska was key in getting Winchester fired.

    ADA Peter Stone: Mothership Legacy Kid

    Yes, Winchester was definitely fired and I think Hargitay was behind it. I’m not sure what went down behind the scenes but my theory is that the outrage from certain nutjob fans over Stone’s “that’s not rape” line in Part 33 and Winchester subsequent response to a hater is a factor in Winchester’s firing, and I think Hargitay was on the side of the fans who were outraged and got Winchester fired. It’s telling that everyone involved with the show has been completely silent on social media about it.

    S20.E20: The Good Girl

    Or did he kill the teacher because he thought the teacher knew about him being the father of his step daughter’s baby? And why exactly did they go to the hospital in the first place, it didn’t look like either McKenzie or Garrett were hurt, and the whole conversation at the start between them now seems off given that they weren’t stepfather/stepdaughter but lovers. The more I think about it, the less this episode makes sense.

    S20.E20: The Good Girl

    This episode was a jumbled mess, it had potential but it was botched. There was a glaring plot hole: why the fuck didn’t they do a DNA test to determine who the father was?!!!! That would’ve cleared the whole matter up. Just because the teacher was dead didn’t mean they couldn’t do a DNA test, that was downright false. Why didn’t they have ME Fitz take the DNA from the teachers body and run it against the DNA of the fetus inside McKenzie, and if that didn’t match run Garrett’s DNA?! Oh yeah, because had they taken that simple step there would’ve been no plot!! I take it Garrett was the actual father, but that leaves the question as to why he killed the teacher?! That made no sense. Did he do it because McKenzie told him the teacher raped her, but why would McKenzie tell him that if they both knew Garrett was the father? A boatload of plot holes in this one. It was nice to see Stone again, especially since we want see much more of him, so it was nice that he got some screen time. But Fin was MIA again, and Carisi disappeared for a large chunk of the episode. I hated the ending scene, it seems like every episode ends with Benson talking to the victim and the victim coming to accept Benson as their savior. It’s tiresome and done just to boost Mariska’s ego and pile on the St Olivia worship. So did Olivia have an abortion or not? I wish the show would quit dodging around that if they are going to keep bringing it up. Either she let Rollins believe she had an abortion in order to try to convince her to not have one, which would make Benson a piece of shit and no better than the anti choice activists she claims to be against, or she had one but won’t say so, which doesn’t make her look good either. I didn’t like the whole conversation between Benson and Rollins, I’m sick of the constant scenes of them discussing issues. Judge Horowitz was good, it was a pleasure to see him again. Overall this episode had potential but devolved into a jumbled mess of plot holes with a heavy dose of St Olivia worship. At least it was better than last weeks shitfest, but it would be hard not to be better than that.

    Law & Order: Criminal Intent

    I think the intent was to create more of a soapy/personal drama feel to the show. I have no idea why the new writers decided to fuck up the show so badly and make it nearly unwatchable after it was so great during the first 5 seasons. CI from 1-5 and CI from 6 onward felt like totally different shows, with CI only being CI again in season 10 IMO.
