I've been a fan for a long time, but this season has been really disappointing. I agree with stephen sherry with all the holes in the defense. It was horrible. I'm a member of a minority, and I'm sick of minorities using their colour as an excuse for everything, telling the majority group that they're racists. They say skin colour does matter and then use it as a cop-out. Disgusting. Have a little accountability.
Ellis does not "free rapists". What he does do is defend his clients, and to ensure that this client receives a fair trial tried before a jury of his peers, where he is to be considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The prosecution in this case failed to prove their case beyond that reasonable doubt, and so the defendant was rightfully acquitted.
Defense attorneys are a crucial part of our legal system. Perhaps even more crucial than the police detectives that Hollywood considers so glamorous and fascinating. If there's one thing that the old, Stabler-era SVU did which was absolutely inexcusable, it was to demonize these defense attorneys and portray them as evil, evil people setting bad men (and women) free. This portrayal is completely false, and I'm glad that the show has begun to take just the slightest of baby steps towards reversing its past sins.
Hell, what we've seen so far of Season 13 has demonstrated to us that the horrendously illegal an
This was by far the worst episode of SVU I have ever seen. It deeply insulted my intelligence and I won't be watching the show again. (changing my dvr setting as I write this)
Benson was raped, yet she agrees to a date with a man who frees rapists? I don't buy that for a second, nor that a jury would believe an admitted drug dealer who claims that he "just helped her inside with her groceries."
Okay, question...if he was helping her with her groceries, why didn't he take the groceries from her and carry them out of the elevator? (which would have been seen on the elevator video) Instead, he watched her struggle carrying the groceries all the way to her door, then offers to carry them through the doorway? Really? And what was he doing in her building in the first place? He just happened to be selling some pot? Okay, to who? Was that pot customer called as a witness? They must have lived on the same floor as the victim, right? Otherwise the rapist wouldn't have gotten o
I thought this episode was excellent and very affecting.
It was involving all the way through and didn't rely on trite plot devices or the latest headlines to move the story along. And ti was impossible to know the ending until it happened. Too may SVU episodes telegraph the resolution half way through the show. This was different. And much better.
A 3.5 because the episode had themes that were hard to watch? You must be hell on Criminal Minds, for all that disturbing depiction of ... serial killers.
This is a show about detectives who investigate people raping other people for a living. This is an inherently disturbing topic. Better to show dirtiness and ambiguity rather than sensationalizing the subject matter into cheap popcorn by throwing in flashy shootouts and police brutality.
