Obese
4 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although when Anthony Anderson became a regular on Law And Order prime his character was not the hotheaded cop he plays on this SVU episode, I do agree with the previous reviewer that his role here probably got him the regular slot on the other franchise show. When Mariska Hargitay decided that she needed a vacation from Chris Meloni, Dann Florek teams Anderson with Meloni. As he says, he's a bigger rule bender than Meloni is.

The show is about bullying here. Two kids beat up, sodomized, and cut off a finger of Rooney Mara a young teenage pianist. It's pretty obvious this was no random attack and the reason becomes clear under investigation. Mara and her boyfriend Billy Wheelan attacked and beat up huge and fat Omar Benson Miller and his brother and sister Shahida McIntosh and Wallace Miller took a little payback on her.

Omar gives a truly touching portrayal of an obese young adult who has to cope with diabetes, heart trouble and all that comes with it. It was ironic for me watching this episode because when I was his age I was a skinny kid. Now that I'm a senior I'm dealing with a lot of his issues as my body metabolism changed.

What was sad in this episode is that they never reported the original assault to the police. David Thornton plays Lionel Granger again in this episode one of the smarmiest lawyers you'll ever meet, the kind they make jokes about. But it's not funny when the non-report of the first attack and some other good maneuvering gets Wheelan off. And then Omar decides on some more street justice that brings tragedy all around.

These kids were not too bright in another way. Wallace kept Mara's cell phone after the attack and Chris Meloni just dials her number and the Meloni/Anderson team has him cold.

A very touching episode from SVU, not to be missed.
