Review, "Infected", 01/03/06  




Voiceover from TV:  "An all-new episode of SVU starts right now on NBC."
Me (pen poised over notebook):  "And we are sore afraid."

Summary of Episode:

In a continuation of his strange trend toward taking cops from other cop shows and making them unappealing guest stars on SVU, Ironbone brings us Gordon Clapp ("Detective Greg Medavoy", NYPD Blue) as a pervy Christian charities philanthropist who likes to have sex with drug-addicted, poverty-stricken women who are clients of his charity, My Salvation.  The gig pays well, too, as he has plonked out about 2 mil for all that delectable junkie sex (because nothing says quality like banging a meth addict in a motel off the Jersey turnpike, right?)  But when one of the girls draws a line and says "No more!  I'm done.", he shoots her.  Her son, Nathan, who is hiding in the closet (probably with the ghost of 4th Season Olivia) overhears the entire exchange.  Later, when Medavoy--er--Carthage...whatever...is released because Nathan fails to pick his voice out of a verbal lineup, Nathan procures a gun from the kid who lives down the hall, tracks Medavoy--er--Carthage to his office and shoots him.  In one of the most ridiculous defense strategies since Carolyn Maddox equated meth-addicted gay men having unprotected sex to Usama bin Laden standing on the courthouse steps with a dirty bomb, Sophie Devere (Annie Potts, back for round two) equates gun-related violence to a head cold.  However, before that defense has a chance to actually work, the NGA (We aren't that stupid, people.  We know you're talking about the NRA.) subpoenas judge and counselors both to refute the scientific study, lest gun manufacturers start making less money due to a sudden drop in the purchasing of guns.  (I couldn't make this shit up if I tried.)

DiNovia's Content Commentary:

Look, this is the third episode in a row where Olivia hasn't gotten to ride in the back of an ambulance!  We'd better start thinking of taking up a collection.  I think we can all go to our local banks and nab the lime lollipops for a good cause, right?

Let me just get this out of the way right now.  Gordon Clapp doesn't do it for me as a creepy, pervy sex junkie/philanthropist.  For Christ's sake, this is Medavoy!  Stepped all over his tongue for Donna Abandando?  Suffered from Verbal Diarrhea Syndrome whenever faced with any conversation of consequence?  Fathered a lesbian couple's baby?  Actually offered to NOT go to his own daughter's wedding because she was so freaked out because her mother (and his ex) was freaking out about him being there?  Yeah.  I'm sooooo scared.

How many people thought that Nathan had said "Aunt Xena" and not "Aunt Gina"?  Raise of hands?  ::counts::  Yeah, me too.  I was almost annoyed that it wasn't because the snark factor on that?  Big.  HUGE.

Was the fact that Monica Phelps worked at a hot dog stand in any way related to the fact that she named her son "Nathan"?  Was that some sort of sly product placement that didn't require a payout to Ironbone?  'Cuz it worked.  As soon as I heard that Monica Phelps worked in a hot dog stand, I thought "Nathan's Hot Dogs".  Ironbone, honey, I think you are owed some cash.

Best line in the show:

Elliot Stabler (to Olivia after finding a paper bag containing $15,000 in the bottom of Monica's work locker):  "We gotta get into the hot dog business!"

Munch, honey?  I love you for tumble drying (on high no less) that poor dealer's latest batch of meth.  But what is Huang going to put in his coffee now?

St. Oliska, Saviour of Lost Children Everywhere?  Keeping an orphaned child in the crib will very quickly go from charitable and loving directly to He's Not Your Fucking Mascot!  Please do not make this a habit.  You can wear a habit if you like.  (In fact, it might help with Mar's new "problem areas".)  But I have images of you running an under-the-radar halfway house for orphaned waifs that have somehow "touched your heart" and that?  Will make me puke.  Kthx.

This is the first episode in a looong time where the names of the characters were so...memorable.  Monica and Nathan Phelps, Gina Arroyo, Ted Carthage, Candace Tanner...  I didn't even need to refer to my notes to make sure of these.  What is wrong with this picture?

Rock on, Melinda Warner!!  Way to quote the fucking BIBLE!  Some women cannot pull off being hot while quoting from the Holy Book but YOU CAN!  Nicely done!

There is one character's name that escapes me in its entirety so I just called her Metal Mouth Katie, The Under-Aged, Meth-Addicted Rape Victim in my notes.  See how much more room I have to take up when I don't get the last name?  However, nice sting op.  And you almost didn't even have to see St. Oliska as she swooped in to remove Katie from the "danger".  In and out in a flash! 

Well hello there, Lionel Granger dear!  Do us a favor when you go back to your office, will you?  Run that fucker Jason Whittaker over with a lawn mower and then feed his remains to the mutant fish in the Hudson, please?  Yes, I am still angry about "Night".  You catch on quick.

Raise of hands.  How many of you knew there was an Italian restaurant across the street from the squad?  ::crickets::  Yeah, that's what I thought.  'Cuz--at the very least--Cragen, Munch, and Stabler should have a hell of a lot more tie stains than they currently do. 

For the most part, this plot wasn't too badly handled.  It was fairly linear, if a little "Huh?" at times.  However, there were a few crowbar moments, starting with:  Casey, dear, what do you mean the DA doesn't think there are any extenuating circumstances regarding Nathan Phelps?  Huh?  "I'll plead this out if you give me a reason to?"  WTF was that, Casey?  The kid has never been in trouble with the law even once.  He's what?  12?  (I know TV Guide said he was 14, but if that kid was 14, I'm Belinda, the Blue Whale of Borneo.)  I find it hard to believe that even Arthur "My Heart is Two Sizes Too Small" Branch would insist on trying a 12-year-old--who witnessed the shooting death of his mother and then shot his mother's killer when he, himself, failed the vocal lineup that would have nailed the bastard--as an adult without extenuating circumstances.  That needed to be shown.  Branch should have convinced us himself.  Otherwise, crowbarred plot move.

Dammit!  Liz Donnelly as judge has lost the O_o Factor for me!  Damn, damn, damn!  I don't want to be used to that!  I want to snarf Gatorade out of my nostrils when I see her on the bench.  Dammit!  Everything new is old again.  Depressing.  I did, however and for no discernible reason, get a royal KICK out of her shaking that sugar packet in the squad.  I desperately want an animated icon of that.  And I have no idea why!

Hi there, Sophie Devere.  Not really surprised to see you in this ep.  Seeing as EVERYONE ELSE AND THEIR SECOND COUSIN is in it.  Just sayin'.

Oh, and Sophie!  Way to bring the Bullshit Defense!  Lovely!  Have you been studying at the Carolyn Maddox School of Lame-Ass Defense Equations?  It shows!  You must be at the head of the class! 

However, I do have to say, that One-Two-Three Punch at the defense's table at the evidentiary hearing was PURE, UNADULTERATED LOVE. 
Sophie:  "I'm sorry, sir, but I wasn't, in fact, speaking to you.  I was speaking to Judge Donnelly."
Liz:  "Mistrial granted with prejudice."
Casey:  "In which case, Your Honor, the defense would like you to dismiss as there now is no action pending against Nathan Phelps."
NGA Mouthpiece:  "Objection!  Your Honor, this was a ploy orchestrated by the defense!"
Judge Santa (what is his name?):  "I'd agree with you, Counselor, but you were the one who called Nathan Phelps to the stand.  Motion to dismiss granted.  We're done here."  (thwack)
Olivia:  ::blink blink::  ::blink::  ::blink::  (to herself, under her breath)  "I don't care if she is blonde; I fucking LOVE her!"

DiNovia's Other Commentary:

10:21pm Casey Novak on screen!  Still blonde.  Actually, she looks more blonde!  Dammit!

Okay Hair Gal, it is on!  Dear Lizz,

You really are a fucking moron, aren't you?  I'm not sure you quite understood the crux of my email to you.  When I said that we "are not fond of" Casey Novak's blonde tresses, that was not, in fact, meant to encourage you to pour peroxide directly on Diane Neal's scalp make Ms. Novak even blonder.  Perhaps you are an illiterate fucktard troll I did not make myself clear.  Casey Novak needs to be a redhead again.  Now.  Before you have to explain to your boss why there is a picket line of angry SVU fans marching in the street outside your office calling for your blood we resort to something drastic.  I mean, who do I have to blow how hard can this be?  It's red!  A color!  If you are confused on this point, feel free to stab yourself in the cheek with your favorite pair of scissors to see an example of the color to consult with Elmo.  He might better be able to communicate with you in terms that are familiar.

So let me just review our request:  Make Casey Novak a redhead again or risk a riot of Limers armed with picket signs and implements of your death We would like Casey Novak to return to her redheaded status post-haste.

May rabid dogs play tug of war with your liver while you look on  Thank you,

DiNovia

LOL  Mar, honey, how far along ARE you?  I mean, you can only be maybe 4 or 5 months pregnant, right?  Lay off the cupcakes, sweetheart, you're HUGE!  However, I suppose you could be carrying twins, yeah?  Just promise me you'll name them HUMAN names and not after your favorite food or your favorite nonsensical word, okay?  If I have to suffer through children named Souvlaki and Aspic Hermann, I might actually jab myself in the eye with that rusty fondue fork I am always threatening people with.

Black peacoat.  Very cute.  Black is slimming, yes.  That sorta worked.  Black hoodie?  Not bad, not bad.  It did an okay job hiding the baby belly.  Not bad.  Black kid's head?  No, honey, that's not going to work.  Not long-term, anyway.  They'll have to write some sort of weird script where Olivia gets glued to a small child and I just can't see that working.  (You think I'm crazy?  Watch the scene where Olivia lays down to sleep in the crib with Nathan.  Just as she turns over, the camera changes angle and Nathan's head obscures Mar's baby belly.  I was laughing so hard, I snorted.)

Yeesh!  I hope SVU doesn't try to do a 3-D episode like Medium did!  Mar's breasts are already coming off the screen enough!  She's gonna poke someone's eyes out with those!  Someone better hire a wrangler for them, STAT!  Sheesh! 

All that ails me can be healed by lovely, lovely C/O-Yay Subtext and this episode is positively poppin' with the stuff!  The fight over Nathan failing the lineup?  Eye-shagging Heaven!  I almost heard the question "We're fighting about this case but we're still on for tonight, yes?"  Subtexty Goodness for all.... Yummy! 

Mar, honey, the Kevlar Vest of Maternal Camouflage?  Very fetching.  Not very effective, mind you.  But very fetching.

Worst quote of the show:

St. Oliska (to Nathan Phelps):  "I would be lucky to have a son like you." (cue the waterworks and the closeup of Mar's eyeballs, please) 

I thought we were done with this Babies for Benson crap?  You know, since they decided NOT to write the pregnancy in and all?  Jesus Christ and All That's Holy, I hope that shit stops soon.

And yeah, it's official.  Casey and Olivia are fucking "an item".  And both of them are absofuckin'lutely whipped!  Olivia running after Casey to apologize for tanking her case and looking so shocked and worried when she'd thought she'd damaged Casey's case enough to force a plea bargain?  Casey being "convinced" by her girlfriend's Olivia's impassioned support of Nathan on the stand?  Those two are so whipped they are practically meringue. 

And that moment at the end where the NGA mouthpiece confronts Casey on the steps while she is gazing lovingly at her girlfriend Olivia while she secures a foster family for Nathan?  Couldn't you just hear the thought in her head?  I would do anything at all for that woman and she knows it.  Good God. 
 
And, on a final note, now that we know that Casey knows how to handle a gun, how many of you had an instant "Charlie's Angels"-style fantasy of her holding a gun on some jumpy perp while calmly explaining to him that if he doesn't stand the FUCK still, she's going to be forced to air condition his skull?  Show of hands?  ::crickets::  No, really?  Just me?  Oh well, I own it.  Girls with Guns rock!

Over all, this wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Honestly, I am surprised!  It's no "RAW" but it had bells and whistles, it had subtext galore, it had excellent acting, and even though she was blonde, Casey still won.  And she did it with panache!  Solid with bells and whistles=4 Limes of Loveliness.  If I did half measures, this ep would be 4 Limes to "RAW"'s 4.5 Limes.  "RAW" was still better, in my opinion.


DiNovia's Rating:



Look out for the Elliotfest next week.  That should be fun.  /sarcasm

Twoodles!

Makes me very happy to read this with as little as 15 minutes before I have to leave for work. Thanks! If I can make it to the end of my shift and still feel like I do right now it's solely based on the fact that as in the past I love your reviews.

There was ho-yay! Wi-with the ho, and the yay?
I mean, besides the plot holes you could fly a mothership through, that sounds like a squee-ful episode!
This may be worth buying the DVDs when they come out.

Lay off the cupcakes, sweetheart, you're HUGE!
LOL
seftiri: C/O Yayseftiri on January 5th, 2006 12:19 am (UTC)
There was HoYay. It was almost a HoYaypalooza, but not quite. :)

And, in Mar's defense, she could be carrying twins.

Or she could be spending more time in donut shops.

The result would be about the same. ;)

How many people thought that Nathan had said "Aunt Xena" and not "Aunt Gina"? Raise of hands?
*Raises hand* I so thought that was what he said.

I think the truck of hair dye would be a little bigger. LOL To quote my mom while watching this episode.
Mom - What is this?
Me - Law & Order:SVU
Mom - No it's not they don't have a blond ADA. Oh that's right they changed her hair. I get confused between the shows now.
seftiri: Mar Joyful Heartseftiri on January 5th, 2006 12:21 am (UTC)
I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who heard "Aunt Xena". LOL

As for the truck of hair dye? Well, he's the first in a convoy of five. That should be enough, right? I hope Hair Gal drowns in it. LOL
Shut up and smile: TtV staremorningafter2 on January 4th, 2006 09:09 pm (UTC)
Warner quoted the Bible? ...I did not miss that... I did not miss that... *curls up in fetal position* I probably didn't miss it, and it just slipped my mind, but... I dislike not remembering things... (I'm such a drama queen.)

Even my dad noticed Mariska's weight gain (this from the man who couldn't even tell me their first names until about a month ago). He looked at me and said, "Has she gained weight?" I blinked and said, "Uh, yeah. That's one way to put it. *pause* She's pregnant." (I actually flashed back to Dr. House comparing pregnancy to having a parasite. I don't remember the exact quote, but it was something about dressing the parasite up and arranging playdates with other parasites...)

*Stomps foot angrily* Why are they messing up Casey's hair?! You'd think with Conviction now, they'd try to differentiate even just a little bit... but she's a) not losing cases left and right (not that I'm complaining), and b) still blonde.

Can I borrow that Casey Charlie's Angels fantasy? Just for a little while?

Oh, look how much I can type when I'm trying to get out of doing math. >_> Excellent review, as always. Made even sweeter by the absence of new episodes lately. And your ad is absolute love. *Scurries off to do something productive*
seftiri: Like Thisseftiri on January 5th, 2006 12:27 am (UTC)
When Stabler went to get Gina Arroyo's things, there was a rubber bracelet with a Bible chapter/verse notation on it and Stabler said he didn't know what it was off the top of his head. So Warner quoted it...directly. It was fabulous!

And Mar's either pregnant or competing in a lot of pie eating contests. O_o

If Hair Gal would just answer my email, everything would be sorted out and we could go back to a redheaded Casey. But noooooooo! She has to make things difficult! ;)

You may, indeed, borrow the Casey "Charlie's Angels" fantasy. We'll make more. ;)

Glad you liked the ad too! Now go get your math done! LOL

Loverly review as always, DiNovia. Can always get it straight from you :)

"Dammit! Liz Donnelly as judge has lost the O_o Factor for me!"

Yeah. Hasn't it for all of us. My mom last night:

"When did she become a judge?"

Me: Yeah. Don't bother. Not worth it.

Goddess. The girls a blonde. Need sunglasses...

Goddess. The girls a blonde. Need sunglasses...

Now that would be the greatest picket line ever. A bunch of fans all wearing Lime Green sunglasses, carrying signs that say "She's too blonde! Our eyes hurt!" or "She better be red or you'll be dead!" LOLOLOLOLOLOL

Glad you enjoyed the review!
eclecticfaneclecticfan on January 4th, 2006 10:27 pm (UTC)
Rock on, Melinda Warner!! Way to quote the fucking BIBLE!

why in the name of dog was she quoting the bible?

St. Oliska (to Nathan Phelps): "I would be lucky to have a son like you."

yack!! this alone means watching uconn get creamed by marquette was STILL the better choice

thanks for the chuckles
seftiri: DN Starpowerseftiri on January 5th, 2006 12:31 am (UTC)
Melinda was quoting the bible because there was this rubber bracelet with a chapter/verse notation on it and Stabler said something about having to look it up and Warner just quoted it, word for word, off the top of her head. It was GREAT! LOL

It really wasn't a bad episode. Well, for this season, anyway. LOL

Glad you liked the review. :D

“Lay off the cupcakes, sweetheart, you're HUGE!” LMAO

I concur, “It’s official. Casey and Olivia are fucking."

Hey Lionel! “Run that fucker Jason Whittaker over with a lawn mower.” Exactly what I was thinking.

“Black kid's head? They'll have to write some sort of weird script where Olivia gets glued to a small child,” Good someone else noticed that!

“Wrangler for Mar's breasts.” they could just tack that particular job onto Diane’s contract and make everyone happy.

LMAO “Carolyn Maddox School of Lame-Ass Defense Equations”

LMAO “Those two are so whipped they are practically meringue.”

LMAO “Lay off the cupcakes, sweetheart, you're HUGE!”

I love these reviews they make me happy. Good thing I wasn’t drinking anything while reading this.

I'm so glad that I wasn't the only one to notice the judicious use of Nathan's HEAD as a cover. I mean black is slimming but really, that's taking it too far!

And I am ALL for tacking MH's breast wrangler to DN's contract! ;) LOLOLOL

Glad you loved the review, dearheart! LOL

shayshaych_03 on January 5th, 2006 12:39 am (UTC)
having never seen Gordon Clapp in anything that I can recall before this, he did it for me as a creepy "good" fronting guy. though seeing "walt" as the kid kept making me want to tell him to run along home to his dad... keeping the kid in the crib was odd... however, they were still treating him like a witness at that point so maybe the thought was safe environment would equal more info?

as for stabler's stained ties... he probably keeps new ones in a drawer. how else would he replace the ones he constantly is dropping into victim's blood? (when he knelt over the mother, he tie clearly smears into the blood. it was a moment of "ew" for me when he then pulls the kid against him to shepherd him away, chanting, "don't look.")

no plea bargain... this is Arthur Branch we're dealing with here. He's the one who arbitrarily fired Serena Southerlyn for being too emotional. Of course he wants the kid tried as an adult ... he's a REPUBLICAN for crying out loud... he was probably the FIRST person the NGA contacted ...

i actually agreed with the "study" in that, it IS easier to commit violence once you have been a victim of violence, HOWEVER, we still have a choice not to. the kid made a bad choice, spurred on by an extreme emotional event. Devore should have gone for EED. Then the NGA would never have been involved and the plea bargain would have held.

the Three MuskaFuries at the end were quite fun :D

I actually kind of like the dark roots poking through the WHITE blonde hair. it's like the True Casey is saying, "I'm down, but I'm not out... Never forget that behind the Blondification lies the true heart of a Red Head"

the black peacoat is new, i believe. the rest of her jackets she's worn before, many times. there IS one shot during the grilling and chilling of Clapp where Mar turns and I swear, she looks like she has missiles mounted on her chest.

the subtext moments in this are rife and plenty. the caps alone are precious and telling :D

I expect that this was the last we've seen of "action Benson" as she is obviously beginning to glow/show.

when casey talked about her dad and guns, I almost shouted, "oh, I hear you sistah!" since i grew up exactly the same way... my dad is a gun enthusiast, and he taught me to shoot at an early age, but i've never shot anyone.

the fanfic reader in me squeed with gleefulness and wishes to deliver a pointed poke at DiNovia in regards to a certain story. so consider yourself Poked, Erin. ;)

seftiri: Don't Evenseftiri on January 5th, 2006 12:56 am (UTC)
I still don't buy the No Plea Bargain thing... If it really was Branch's call then why did Casey cave to LIV, of all people? (Being whipped is not the right answer here, btw. ;) ) If Branch was calling the shots on that then Casey shouldn't have caved to anyone. We needed to see more of that somehow. From a writer's perspective, that just didn't jive.

And I don't think that was actually Mar running (back to camera) in traffic in that scene. I remember reading an article somewhere that said they hired a stunt double for that scene. But I agree with you. No more Action!Benson! for awhile. Unless the action somehow entails her eating an entire Black Forest cake in one sitting. LOL

Oh God, which story am I being poked about now? LOL I still only have like 15 in the works. LOL You'll have to narrow it down for me, hon. LOL

As always, your review was perfect! I really do need to remember to not have liquid around...I usually end up snorting it at some point. I also noticed the convenient placement of Nathan's head to hide the tummy - my roommate and I are constantly on the watch for an X-Files-esque baby-hiding trenchcoat. Half the fun of watching SVU now is going to be pointing all those is-it-there-or-not moments!
seftiri: LivPrettyPinkseftiri on January 5th, 2006 04:09 pm (UTC)
I know, I know! I have visions of future notes for future episodes that say "And then they panned over to Olivia, who looked like she'd just swallowed an entire Christmas turkey before they remembered and cut up above her waist."

Or "Today they blocked baby belly with two cabs and Donnelly's robes. Soon they'll be hiding her in a little getup to the side of the squad, saying, 'Pay no attention to the fat detective behind the curtains!'"

Glad you enjoyed the review, dear! :D

Why, OH WHY does she continue to be blonde?

Thank you! ::bows::

And I don't know why they are keeping her blonde! Dammit, if only the hair gal would actually RESPOND to my email.

We could get a dialogue going, move forward in the peace process, but noooOOOOoooo...she clams up and continues to peroxide our beautiful ADA.

Oh yeah. You'll like it, plot holes and all. Because what on Earth could be more fun than pointing at Mar's belly and going "I seeeeeeee you! I can see the baby belly!! Jesus, did they think putting a Kevlar vest on the woman was going to hide that? I didn't even know they MADE Kevlar vests in maternity versions."

Well, one thing is more fun. C/O subtext. Which we got loads of. :D

Glad you liked the review!

One of the teachers at my school doesn't have cable, so to spread the Gospel of the Limer Goddess, I tape the episode and bring it to her. Then she brings it back, and I show the episode on fridays to anyone who wants to see it. The reason I mention this is because this teacher is still under the influence of what I like to call "Alex the Tempter". She said to me today "You know, Casey is starting to grow on me. That was pretty ingenious, that thing at the end." I like to think that my work of spreading the word is finally paying off, one non-believer at a time. Love the review, by the way.
