Psychos Seem Normal
26 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent episode. First of all, it is better quality than a typical TV episode, and seems more like a suspense or thriller movie, albeit a short one. It involves a woman who has been held captive and abused, hence the title, "Slaves." The detectives investigate, and the suspects seem like successful, healthy people, who would blend in easily at a party or other social gathering. They live in Manhattan, a crowded and civilized part of the world, and have their own evil little kingdom going on. It is disturbing to see people, who seem ordinary and have lives that seem enviable, who have a darker side and private life involving unspeakable acts. This insight that psychos hide in plain sight in our society, perhaps very near us, is disturbing. Another plot line involves Detective Stabler causing those around him to worry about his psychological well being, as he seems extremely fed up with the people he arrests. Well done NBC!
