Way overboard
17 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The SVU squad gets a case involving a low esteem teen girl who gets beaten up and thrown down a flight of stairs. Furthermore the girl won't name her attacker, but it's one of two boys who did this to Carly Schroeder, jock Alexander Nifong and theater major Ezra Miller. Really complicating things is the fact that the girl sent out some sex-ting pictures of herself which could be considered porn.

Of course we find out halfway through who did the assault, but Judge Swoosie Kurtz goes way overboard and sentences Schroeder to a youth facility. One of the few times you'll ever see the defense, prosecution and Mariska Hargitay all join forces to see just what this judge's agenda is. Believe me, Kurtz certainly has one.

This episode also marked the third appearance of Noel Fisher as CSU lab tech Neil Stuckey. He's getting more and more annoying as time goes on leading to a great climax in his fourth and final appearance. I'd be annoyed at him to as he races over to the SVU squad to show them Schroeder's porn on the web. Clearly he got his jollies seeing it.

Nicely done and Swoosie Kurtz is some piece of work as you'll see.
