They feed off each other
5 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I've always found it fascinating how the left and right have always seemed to feed each other and have each other provide the worst examples to justify the other's point of view. Everyone in this episode should have taken a chill pill.

Dany Delany soccer mom to Ricky Ullman is heading up a league of decency type movement to get what she considers a sexually suggestive show with Brittany Spears type teen Maggie Grace in the lead. Maggie is a sexy sort and her show which has her play a karate kicking teen detective is something that Delany feels is not for family audience.

At the same time Lewis Black is a Howard Stern type who has a radio show that appeals to teens with budding hormones like Ullman. Delany's other crusade is to get Black off the air. I remember as a kid listening to Jean Shepherd on the radio myself, but he was hardly as brutally frank as Black or Stern are.

Black makes some comments about what a slut Maggie Grace and some eager young man should do her good and proper. Guess who takes up Black's suggestion with consequences all around.

This SVU episode is about censorship and taste, the first we have too much of, the second not hardly enough. The regulars in the cast take a back seat to Delany and Black each using the other to justify their point of view.

A most thought provoking SVU episode.
