    Exactly, and that’s why it pissed me off that they made a deal with Arlene. They wanted Frank to be guilty because of his sleaziness and because they didn’t want him to gain custody of the baby. Episodes where it seemed like the main characters want someone to be guilty in spite of the evidence always piss me off, fortunately there aren’t many of those on the Mothership, SVU has a lot of them though.

    Law & Order: Criminal Intent

    It really disappointed me that Slither wound up involving Nicole because the opening showed so much potential and had a very chilling feel, it disappointed me that it became part of the Nicole fiasco, and it was bizarre at the end how after the perp was killed in the staircase no one took off looking for Nicole, they all just stood over his body, very bizarre.

    Yes I’ve made my dislike of the Nicole Wallace storyline well known, it was over the top and ridiculous how Nicole kept on escaping justice, and yes the storyline should’ve ended with Great Barrier, the alternate ending to the episode was far superior to the canon ending of Nicole escaping yet again. I usually skip the Nicole episodes when they are on on reruns, I never found the character all that compelling and the storyline went on for way too long.

    Yeah Frank didn’t care, but there was no real evidence pointing to him as the killer. It seemed to me like they wanted him to be guilty because he was sleazy, it irritated me that they cut a plea deal with Arlene when I thought Arlene was the killer, it was like they wanted Frank to be guilty in spite of the evidence, it irritated me.

    I saw House of Cards tonight, and I have to say this episode irritates me, it really seemed like they all had a vendetta against Frank because of his background, there was no evidence tying Frank to the murder other than Arlene’s self serving testimony which I found to be suspicious and I think it was likely Arlene was the killer. It seemed like they wanted Frank to be guilty. And like it or not, he had a right to custody of his child, and I didn’t like Branch acting like they shouldn’t look for them. I’m always irritated by episodes where it seems like they have a bias against someone and want them to be guilty, which is what it seemed like here.

    Goren eating the steak is from D.A.W, and yes that was a hilarious scene, one of the funniest in CI history.

    I felt like Goren’s shrink sessions in season 10 were an attempt to give the character some closure from all of the crap he had been through since season 6, I didn’t mind them but they didn’t add anything to the show. I liked season 10, it felt like golden era CI and the show seemed very fresh again.

    I do not like Monster, all of the main characters looked terrible and seemed OOC, you had Briscoe and Curtis coerce a confession from a suspect who turned out to be innocent and who they had no real evidence against on McCoy’s orders, very OOC for all of them. The judge was right, the guy initially arrested should sue the cops and DA’s. Plus we had all of the personal subplots: Briscoe’s daughter, Schiff’s re-election, McCoy facing the disciplinary committee, none of it was interesting or even had a real resolution, it just bogged down the episode the way it bogged down the season. Monster is one of my least favorite L&O’s actually.

    I love that scene as well, very funny and one of the only times we saw the usually very serious and reserved Carver act more laid back. That was a great scene.

    ADA Peter Stone: Mothership Legacy Kid

    That was a great interview. I really liked what Philip had to say, he’s spot on about how there is a small group of nutjob fans who are deeply invested in SVU and influence the show, and he’s right about how Stone standing up to Benson is probably the reason he was written out and that the other characters besides Benson deserve more screentime. He seems to echo a lot of what viewers are saying about the show, and I have a feeling that pissed off Mariska and she was behind him getting written out. Notice how he didn’t really say anything about her in the interview.

    Oh yes I’m certain Carver knew beforehand what Goren was going to say, I think they had prepared it and rehearsed it before the trial, Carver didn’t look at all surprised and I’m certain Carver was in on Goren’s plan to bait Kelmer into testifying and it was definitely intentional.

    Faith was on today, and I have to say the killer in this episode was beyond gullible to the point of being delusional. I have no idea how she could still believe that Erica was real when there was overwhelming evidence she was a fraud and no proof she was real, yet Christine still believed the hoax all the way through and was willing to commit murder to help this fictional girl. I wish Skoda had appeared in this episode to give some insight into Christine’s mindset, because I wonder how mentally competent she was and it would’ve been nice to have had more insight into her mental state.

    Yes I forgot Carrier, they bleep out the word “bareback” which was used as evidence against the defendant, it really takes away from the episode and makes it harder to understand what is going on. The censorship is so ridiculous and unnecessary, and it really detracts from the show.

    The best example I can give of censorship affecting viewers understanding the episode is in Fools For Love, they censor the word “douche” twice, and it’s being used in the technical way not as an insult, ME Rodgers tells the detectives that the killer used a douche on the victim to clean up and they bleep the word out. It affects your understanding of the scene if you haven’t seen the episode before as you are confused as to how the killer cleaned up and you have to figure out what was censored.

    It’s interesting because only seasons 1-12 have censorship, I’ve never seen any censorship in post season 12 episodes, it’s obviously the packaging and yeah it really pisses me off, the censorship is distracting and ridiculous and can ruin key moments. I miss the episodes on TNT as well, and yeah they pissed me off by canceling Major Crimes also, I no longer watch TNT except for basketball.
