Captain Donald Cragen: It's not private when these begin sexting. College admissions officers, future employers even their own children might see these pictures one day. They don't realize the consequences of their actions.

Half good, half great.
26 May 2010 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Washington Mitch is dead wrong, and I couldn't disagree more with his summary and opinion of this latterly excellent episode. The first half of the show is your basic beautiful teen girl being abused by her sadistic boyfriend formula plot, which we've already seen maybe 60 times previously in this wonderful series. There are a few new wrinkles thrown in to keep the audience awake, until the far more interesting and often fascinating secondary storyline kicks in, at about the 35 minute mark.

Greatly aided by a terrific evil witch performance by Swoosie Kurtz as a corrupt Family Court Judge, the show sails along to a most satisfying conclusion, following a successful if paper thin ruse sprung upon the greedy, power hungry Judge Hilda, leaving her enough time for a right wing rant before being hauled off to the lockup, presumably for at least ten years. Plus the loss of her license to practice Law, and being removed from the Bench. 9 out of ten.

Back to that Rant for just a second, before signing off. Like so many other posters, I too deplore Dick Wolf's politics, and the way he manages to work his thoughts, ideals and preposterously over the top Liberalism into so many episodes, including this one. Just plain reprehensible, is what it is.
