    Is anyone still watching? I gave up somewhere during the season after Stabler left and I have seen a smattering of episodes since when I am bored.

    Either way, when they EVENTUALLY end it they need to have Stabler come back for an episode.
    Haven't missed an episode. My husband gave it up though. He can watch his Antique Roadshow episodes on his own.

    They are some rather pathetic people, though. They kind of deserve to be mocked.


    Sorry for the late reply but I totally do agree. They should be mocked and riddiculed.

    I never did get why they feel so entitled.

    I have only watched season 1-4 of the original Law & Order, because I really liked Ben Stone. I might watch later seasons at some other time, I don't know yet.

    I have watched SVU every now and then.

    I just realized Jerry Orbach was the voice for Zacary Foxx on Galaxy Rangers.

    Ok, been watching Law & Order: SVU for a few weeks now.

    First, how did a Misandrist like Benson ever pass the psych exam to be a cop in the first place? She hates men with a passion. She can look at a tree and arrest it 'cause it's got wood.

    Second, does she actually do anything on the show besides hug and ooze empathy for victims?

    Why wouldn't I? I haven't seen most of it, but already I've seen several examples of Benson bending over backwards to excuse a female perpetrator, but when the perp. is a male, it doesn't matter what the extenuating circumstances might be. She's even prosecuted males in cases where no rape or crime was committed, That woman shouldn't be anywhere near a job in law enforcement. Seems to be that her bias shows up more in later seasons, so it might be the writers trying to jump on the "#MeToo" bandwagon, or at the very least, taking care to avoid showing anything that group might not like.

    On the other hand, I rather like the character of Munch in the earlier seasons.

    Ok, turn it around. What if the lead character and boss of the SVU was a male misogynist?

    I have no problems with a woman in a position of power; Kate Beckett in "Castle", Serena Southerlyn and Connie Rubirosa from the original "Law & Order", Meredith Grey and so forth. There are far too many to name; strong women in power are very, very common on TV these days.

    I do have a problem with a Misandrist being in charge of a law enforcement agency that focuses on sex crimes, just as I would have a problem with a Misogynist in that position.

    You are the one making assumptions here; that I dislike women in power, which is not true. This is a dislike for this one character in this one position on this show because she doesn't treat people the same. Or is it that it's ok to be biased against males, but not ok to be biased against females?

    From what I can tell, she wasn't like this in the early seasons, but in the later seasons? She hates men, plain and simple.
