Matched adversaries.
8 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

While Adam Baldwin is temporarily in charge of SVU the squad catches a case that's going to be difficult no matter which way it goes. A popular author of erotic works Anna Chlumsky after appearing on Roger Bart's talk show is raped by her host. And then he does it again after a police report is made. Clearly Bart does not know from 'no' and thinks he's powerful enough to get away with it.

His reason for thinking so is that Chlumsky has based her whole career on what a free and easy orgasm seeking woman she is.

Bonding with Chlumsky is Mariska Hargitay, but this will be one tough case for the DA to win.

Bart and Chlumsky are a matched pair of adversaries, this is a good one.
