Did You Know?


When Stabler and Benson arrest Emma's grandparents. Stabler quotes the eighth commandment as "Thou shall not bear false witness". The Eighth Commandment is "Thou Shall not steal" (Exodus 20:15). The Ninth Commandment is "Thou Shall not bear false witness" (Exodus 20:16). However, different religious affiliations may have slightly different Commandments. For example, Stabler is Catholic and the eighth Commandment for Catholics is "bearing false witness." See more »

While the episode itself wanted to make sure that it didn't pull punches in regards to the issue of Same-Sex Parents raising children and the clashes between sects of Christian religion,specifically the Catholics and homosexuality, the episode itself feels formulaic and flat,using obvious plot devices, and feels politically heavy handed throughout.

While I have no reason to spoil the show, even in the beginning, it feels like they simply are pushing the story as more of social commentary, a standalone "ripped from the headlines" piece that fails to excite unless you feel the need to laugh at characters who, pardon the phrase, get "pwn'd" by the usual Svu crew.

For the most part,this episode tries very hard to make the right-wing Christians look silly, mean, and for the most part idiotic, the leftist characters righteous, and the gay characters shining examples of humanity.

It's a little hard to swallow.

Nice try guys, maybe next time you can cut down a little of the schmaltz and let us see both sides of the issue more clearly before trying to make a statement.

And B Movie blues? Please stop writing reviews until you can offer a more in-depth viewpoint.
