Dear "the Dude" Name calling is all fun and games when you think you're anonymous, right? Yes, I got the email notification of your original comment. Bravo to you. Also, learn to read. The people who nominated these shows are listed. Duh.
I got ya covered over here! http://www.tvfanatic.com/slide...
You want to know the truth of it? In the "real world" a woman who has been raped has no rights. She has no attorney who cares about her case and she's nothing but a piece of evidence for prosecution. If she doesn't want to testify against her attacker out of fear or shame once a suspect has been prosecuted, she can be sent to jail for noncompliance. Her past can be misconstrued and used against her in any way. The same is true of any victim, as victims have no rights. The only one really on the books is for the names of rape victims not to be revealed by press. On the other hand, the accused is protected in many, many ways, one of which is their past cannot be brought up and used against them unless they bring it up first for their own defense. Nobody will ever know what an assclown they are unless it's pertinent to the case. Not cool. Not much about SVU is typical, as this group cares deeply for the victims, something that isn't often the case as government attorneys are overburdened and underpaid.
We wanted to keep it relevant for all readers, so we put a cutoff at 2003.
And I think you're interpreting from your bias against women and the character. We'll have to agree to disagree.
Again, rewatch the episode. She said very clearly she had no interest in paying for sex, but asked him if he ever got paid to talk and could she write about their conversation. She most certainly did not agree to go with him for his real services. It wasn't even on her radar. There's no argument here. What you thought you watched, you didn't.
Abby didn't hook up with Carlos. She spent time with him talking. How does that make her a whore? He rubbed her feet. If that's forbidden, then I give up. She paid him because she understands he does that to make money, even if they only talked. That was their deal. I think you need to watch again. There wasn't even a kiss. Instead she got material for a new book. She has to get material somewhere because she's being blocked everywhere.
Thanks for picking up the reviews with gusto, Sammy! I'm so disgusted with Daphne and so happy others are, as well. I wouldn't have been able to take it if Emmett and Toby acted as blase as John did. What was that man thinking? They should have all gone to the police station immediately. Bay isn't a criminal and didn't grow up on the mean streets. She's going to have a hard time understanding that world. I hurt for her.
I think you have to watch in the same way you watch The Blacklist. None of it is very believable, but it's damn fun. It's not about what we see on the surface, in my opinion. It's everything that's boiling underneath, such as the interpersonal relationships and what appears to be impending backstabbing at any moment! Glad to see you here, too, reality adictt!!
I agree with everything you said and that's why I love it. It's about so much more than terrorism or government. They're all so shady! I had to laugh when Charlie got to Yemen and had absolutely no support at all, but took it in stride, and the number of times Nick said he hated Yemen. I like them together.
