    Let me start by saying I absolutely love SVU. My wife and I watch it pretty religiously and really never are disappointed. I'd say we've seen close to 90% of the episodes. But the absolutely forced story/acting with Ice-T and Adam Beach was so horrible, and I usually like both of them as actors. The brooklyn monologue was one of the worst I've ever seen in television.

    Worst was Ice-T's son. Right from the beginning you cringe at how bad his expression/emotion is. For example, when Mariska speaks with him, he looks blank and then forces unrealistic frustration and it was seriously painful to watch.

    I don't know how this script got to screen and it was really disappointing. Gotta love when a new character shows up 45 minutes into the show and you know that he is obviously the killer.

    And seriously, in law, you can't go to someone's sister and tell her that her sibling was raped. So horrible.

    I will continue watching of course, but I was appalled at how bad this ep was.

    I've always liked Fin and when he gets to lead a case I find it's a pleasant change from the archaic same old from Benson & Stabler. Don't get me wrong, there is a reason why Law & Order: SVU is the most exiting crime-drama on television (with exception only to The Wire). But with all the anger management that Olivia gives to Elliot and the crossovers into the personal lives of Elliot's kin it's important that we are able to find solace with a different member of SVU. Tonight the intolerant Fin has to run case that was initiated when his son, Ken came to him about a friend he thinks is a rape victim. The stubborn former undercover narcotics officer can't seem to get the case off the ground at first. But when the list of people being hurt grows a Detective Chester Lake from the Brooklyn SVU thinks he has found connections with the rapes in Manhattan and a group of murders he is working on from his borough. Although the two personalities make for problems at first they can eventually put their differences aside and find clinics owned by the same doctor where all the victims had visited. The killer is narrowed down to a small but very tight family containing a doctor a lawyer and a janitor. Are we getting an idea of who the killer might be? Anyways, the janitor, Henry has always been overlooked by his doctor father. Without him feeling any sense of pride, Henry has always been craving fatherly attention. It turns out that actually any attention will do for Henry. This includes raping a killing his father's patients and making scrapbook clippings of all the newspaper articles surrounding his wrongdoings. He just wants to be gawked over. So they arrest and arrest the Henry until he has to be brought with the gaze of the media watching. Well it's what he always wanted and that's what Law & Order: SVU is all about. Making dreams come true. Speaking of a dream coming true we have been seeing a lot of actor Kal Penn (Henry) lately. Aside from being the killer in tonight's show he was also recently a terrorist in 24. This means he has gotten into two of my reviews as a guest star in just one week. You know have made it in Hollywood when that happens.

    I don't have a problem with Benson and Stabler taking a week out of the spotlight, however, why did we bring in Adam Beach into this episode, he offered nothing, its a bad idea to. Let Finn work cases with Munch, leave the genetic defective out of this. the idea of Novak and Lake hooking up literally made me sick. Novak's way to classy to get involved with a loser like him. I am against Adam Beach joining the show, it's not broke, don't mess with it. I like all of the current characters on the show. The show doesn't need a boost from new blood. Unlike many of the people who comment on this site, I liked Danni Beck, if we were adding a new character, why not her?

    I've seen a lot of episodes of Law and Order SVU and I have to say I've never seen one with writing as bad as this. This episode is rich with expository dialog, awkward character interactions and the always lovely, characters who act very strange for no reason at all. I don't even know how to articulate everything that was wrong with this episode. They even had a cheesy "electronic" victim board that drew nifty blue and red lines from a huge photo of each victim to the place in the city that they had all visited. That's awesome, why didn't the folks at the NYC police department think of that? Someone should tell them to waste a bunch of money on something like that. If you are thinking about watching an episode of SVU I'd look for another one.

    Adam Beach joins the SVU squad in this episode. He's a detective from Brooklyn SVU who comes into the squad one fine day and says that his three homicides are related to two rapes from Manhattan that Ice-T is handling are related. Most reluctantly Ice-T partners up with Beach and they fight almost constantly about how to proceed. But Beach turns out to be right though he grates on Ice-T's nerves.

    It was obvious that Beach was not in for the long haul. Eventually in another episode an old case of his finally gets to him and he commits homicide in that story and he's gone. Too bad because Dann Florek is always short staffed.

    The perpetrator is a real prize and the link for all the cases is an interesting one. Kal Penn the perpetrator has some big time Daddy issues. But truth be told father Navid Negahban successful though he is is also no prize.

    You'll have to see the episode to know what I mean.
