"Rockabye", a pre-review  
Here it is; your pre-review in 60 words or less.

In an episode that was SIMPLY SCREAMING for the weekly "Liv Likes Lads" and "OB is half of the phrase 'OB/GYN' for a reason" flagellations, the writers were SHOCKINGLY restrained on that front.

And that makes me SQUEE.

But not as much as the SUBTEXT does.

So maybe this episode was brought to us by the letter S?

This episode might actually escape with Limes of Loveliness! What are the odds?!

Tune in tomorrow to The Limer Lounge for your full-length review! Guest Dad even weighs in!

I'll be watching this one again fairly soon as my sister is in total love with John Patrick Amedori. I had to run around and try to find a tape to tape this on for her. ;)

Did you SEE Liv stand behind Casey when Arthur approached her after the trial?? Did you see that look of "Whatever you have to say to her, you say to me too, you overblown gasbag."

OMG.... soooooo subtextapalooza!! And there was TONS of it!

I KNOW!! WHEE!! *dancedancedance*

I'm also a wee bit tipsy at the moment. So I'm not coherent. I apoligize. ;)

Good for you! I read about your day from Hell! *snuggles* And have a drink for me, hon! :D

Double yay for subtext. And was it just me, or was anyone else waiting on the edge of their seat to see if Casey was gonna get fired??? I was prepared for either squeeing or crying. Suspensful!! ~~There's another "S" for ya ;)

Oh, I so TOTALLY was! Ask my father! I was sitting there going "Oh HELL NO, you'd better not be sending her down that path!! I will NOT be happy about that!!" It was very suspenseful!

But, proving once again that Arthur loves Casey, he just backed off. LOL

One day I am going to write a Branch-snark C/O story where he is afraid of Olivia and that's why he's so nice to Casey. LOL

purplekudzu on November 23rd, 2005 06:25 am (UTC)
Oooh, Branch-snark C/O story would be limetastic!!

And P.S. I love the Icon!

Thanks! I made it as a gift to a friend but I loved it so much I had to use it too... :)

You know, the thing I was most grateful for in this whole episode was that the actors who played the two kids actually looked like teenagers. I'm sick of people who look twenty-five playing sixteen-year-olds.

*Sigh* No one's going to do anything about Casey's hair, are they? It's a conspiracy. They're trying to get her to look like Alex Cabot (blonde hair), but the roots are their way of differentiating (Alex's hair was prettier, therefore Alex is better.).

Still, the subtext and Warner time made me very happy. And Branch's line about being pro-life but being more pro-law (or something like that?) too.
seftiri: Kelly from Nightseftiri on November 23rd, 2005 06:32 am (UTC)
Good point about the teenagers. They did look so young and so...young. LOL

And no, it doesn't look like anyone's going to do anything about the hair. Maybe I can find the email addy of the hair/makeup department and we can spam their inbox or something. Sigh...

I want my redheaded Casey back, darnit!! ::shaketh fist::

Oh the Warner time was LOVE... I even made a note of it in my...uh...notes. LOL Warner on the stand is LOVE. :D

Shut up and smile: Jack Clairemorningafter2 on November 23rd, 2005 06:47 am (UTC)
Hm... I'd gladly help with the spamming of the hair/makeup department. It would be fun, and for the betterment of mankind. Well, maybe just making SVU that much more bearable. Everyone's got to start somewhere, right?

I say we just mail them bottle after bottle of red hair dye.

^_^; How can you take notes while watching SVU? I can't do that. I'd either have to look down and miss half the episode, or accept the fact that my writing would be an illegible series of scribbles and dots.
seftiri: Limer Lawseftiri on November 23rd, 2005 06:54 am (UTC)
LOL Sending a box of red hair dye with a note saying "The Limers have spoken. Bring back our redheaded ADA NOW!!" would be hysterical! LOLOLOL

As for the notes, it really depends. If I'm typing them directly into the computer, which I do often, I can watch and type at the same time. Then I review the notes during the commercials to make sure they sound right or to add little details.

Tonight I took them by hand in a notebook and again, I write them while watching...which does not make them grammatically correct or even particularly legible to anyone but me. LOL I don't even follow the lines on the paper. And it's all a weird combination of fandom shorthand and reminder phrases! If anyone tried to decipher them, they'd think I'd gone insane. LOL Maybe I should scan a set in so you all could see them. LOL

How embarrassing would that be?
Shut up and smile: TtVmorningafter2 on November 23rd, 2005 07:00 am (UTC)
I think the hair/makeup people would probably just wonder "what the hell is a Limer?" *Pouts* Doesn't Diane get a say in this?

*Grin* Hey, I'd like to see a set of those notes. They can't be any worse than the stuff I scribble down for fanfics in the middle of classes. (I've actually perfected the art of messy, illegible handwriting. I'm grateful for it because I sometimes slip up and leave my fic-writing legal pads lying around. When a family member picks them up, they can't read a word.)

at the risk of being smacked, i liked casey's hair tonight. however, i would have LOVED it if it had been red :D because long and shiny red? love. plain, love. Heh :)

otherwise, what also got me was the convo between donnelly and casey... they're friends? since when?

i seem to remember a "what did i do now?" comment last year...

and the slippery slope comment. oy. :/

still. good case. good courtroom stuff. Branch v Casey and emotionalism? Casey 2, Branch 0, Tie 1.
seftiri: Liv Casey Aniseftiri on November 23rd, 2005 03:50 pm (UTC)
I like her hair...I just loathe the color! Crayola yellow just doesn't suit her.

They aren't friends and that was clear by Donnelly's reaction. I think Casey used that to soften the blackmail. LOL Poor thing. She didn't want to go there and make her recuse herself but she did because that's what Arthur ordered her to do. And instead of taking the "you know this was all Arthur's idea" easy way out, Casey stood up and took Donnelly on. But she couldn't really step over that line of extortion so she threw out the friend card. Thank God Donnelly fell for it. LOL

I thought for sure you'd be all about the subtextapalooza going on! There was so much of it! ;)
shayshaych_03 on November 23rd, 2005 11:23 pm (UTC)
subtext? i think it's maintext ;)

someone on the landsvu lj com reviewed it and compared the blondification of casey to ... serena. and suddenly, it.all.makes.sense.

see, last night, when capping, i noticed that whenever casey has been in a suit this season (which is often) she sticks her hands in her pockets and stand around looking... hot.

serena did this on a regular basis. trust me. i have caps. LOL

serena, we know, was a big ol' womanlovin' lesbian...

my only hope?

that it's not an instaOutGoodbye thing. i'd rather be left wondering, and grinning at all the "clues" :D

Subtext!ahoy lol

I can't wait to see the ep, I'm getting it as we speak/type/read/etc. Lmfao
seftiri: Hungerseftiri on November 23rd, 2005 05:34 pm (UTC)
Mmmmmmmm....Liz Blaine animated icon = LOVE.

And yes, subtext ruled this ep. :D

joemacsanne on December 8th, 2005 04:25 pm (UTC)
I've still not seen the ep. LOL I have it saved, but my DVD burner isn't working right now and I can't get it figured out! And I don't have the time to play it on the computer. LOL when i'm on here, I'm all over LJ. I like relaxing and watching eps in bed before I fall asleep!

Here's another Liz icon .. heh.
