Website plays "rough" with the "L&O" cops!
1 November 2009 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

As is the case with many episodes of both "Law & Order" and "SVU", "Human Flesh Search Engine" begins one way and takes a surprising turn in another direction. The method by which the photographer dies, similar to the demise of the late David Carradine, is inconsequential, as the story lies in the ease with which one's privacy is endangered by the "freedom" of the Internet.

As the story unfolds, Detective Bernard (Anthony Anderson) finds himself the "mark" of the website being investigated and has a part of his private life revealed to the public. This plot element is quite effective, allowing the viewer to ponder his own "safety" on the Internet.

The acting is, as usual, great with kudos going to Anderson and guest star Tina Benko as the very disturbed Kerri Sands.

Carolyn McCormick returns as psychiatrist Carolyn Olivet.

In a secondary development, Lt. Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) approaches a benchmark in her fight against cancer.
