Since you asked...
James Wolcott writing about Law & Order asks:
I tried watching L & O: SVU afterwards, which is now the franchise's ratings winner, but was defeated by the reliably bad acting of the male ensemble: Richard Belzer just seems to be hanging around like an undertaker awaiting corpse delivery; Ice T still says every line as if he bore it a minor grudge; Christopher Meloni is down to one sulky bearing the etch of bitter experience. I know a lot of people like this series, but what's to like?Oooo! Oooo! I know that one. Pick me!
If there was a one hour show called Mariska Hargitay Wearing Sweatpants and Ironing, I'd watch it...
