When it is revealed that Det. Bernard has a child, the child is referred to twice as a male child before the goof. 1) Defense attorney refers to the child as "your son" when questioning Bernard. 2) Bernard shouts "he's a 10 year old boy" after his revealing performance on the stand. However, in the final moments of the show, Bernard goofs and refers to the child as "her", when answering Lupo's question of how the kid was: "HER mother and I, uh, she ended up marrying her actual boyfriend. We both decided that it would be better, less confusing, if I didn't see HIM. Guess I could look HIM up on the Internet." See more »

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.
