SVU Community of Refined Taste
Oh, bollocks. Our TV's still not set up in the new apartment and I completely forgot yesterday was Tuesday. Any kind Boston-area souls happen to get the episode on tape, TiVo or illegal download and feel like letting me watch it? I don't have a working computer at home yet either, so I can't receive it via AIM. Oh, I suck.
I ask because the fact that someone on lawandordersvu —
called it the "OMG best epi evar!" indicates to me that it would be an excellent episode to snark.
::is about male rape::KYLIE:
OMG THE EV0L!!!!!! ::writes feverish manifesto; ignores recap::
Seriously, though? Male rape follows me (if you haven't been privy to that whole debacle, it's just as well and you may not want to ask.) All the same, the recap will get written. As soon as I move. And write a manifesto.
By next week. I swear.
(The irony is that the odds are very good that NO ONE CARES. Yet I feel guilty. Kylie's head, please stop being guilty.)
Anyway. Until then, consider this an open comment thread on Olivia's hair.
So, today's episode of SVU? Season premiere? Totally started out to be the best episode since Alex left. ( most minor spoilers ever, but I am nothing if not assiduous. Well, perhaps I can be pretentious too. But I am assiduous as well.Collapse )
I have seriously not enjoyed an episode that much in - one full season? Two, maybe?
SO WHY THE FUCK DID MY TIVO HAVE TO CRAP OUT 25 MINUTES IN?!?!??!!??!?!?!?!?
Dude, Stabler's in the middle of going *off* on Huang and anyone going off on Huang is awesome and all of a sudden he is not going off on Huang anymore, and his face is frozen in mid-snarl, and then the screen goes pixely and then it goes blocky and then it slooooooooooowly disintegrates. And I am left pathetically staring at the empty disintegrated scene and saying "But... where's my UnStabler?"
Um, dancing_crazy —
, theniwokesoftly —
, anyone else who may have been waiting for a recap... it will not be happening. Because I have not seen the last HALF OF THE EPISODE.
[blows the dust off this comm]
So, since the new season is almost upon us, can we expect slammerkinbabe —
to reprise her role as best recapper ever in the history of the world?
Please? Because if this season is shaping up to be as shitty as I think it's going to be, I'm gonna need the laughs.
Hey guys! Now that it's the weekend I actually found some time to finish this "Goliath" recap. Maybe someday I'll even finish the "Parts" one. One never knows.
This episode wasn't quite as snarkable as the first (well, this is kind of predictable, as the reason that I did the recap of the last one in the first place was that it was practically screaming "SNARK ME!") Also, dancing_crazy —
's gonna wanna kill me, 'cause it's pretty damn heavy on Casey snark. I am sorry, Jillie dear! I'll buy you an extra scoop of ice cream when you visit Boston to make up for it.
Anyway... ( Goliath recapCollapse )
You know, guys... the show is getting to a sad point when a.) you don't notice until after an episode is concluded that Olivia had less than five minutes of screen time and b.) when you do notice, your immediate thought is "well, THAT'S a relief."
Benson, my tough butch cop of seasons past, I love you with all my
soul. Please please please come back. I cannot take any more of this shag-haired unprettily crying ( spoilerCollapse )
dipshit weeping around in your place.
Also, OMG NONUNSTABLER!! I knew all that time I had spent this week clapping my hands and going "I do believe in Stablers, I do I do I do!" would pay off.
Recap will be up sometime tomorrow, I hope. For this episode, I taped it and took notes and everything.( spoiler footnoteCollapse )
