I didn't know there was an order to the shows, so I watched Organized Crime before SVU, big mistake.

I know it makes for fun tv, but at some point you would think that the SVU detectives would learn not to verbally assault and threaten every single suspect.

I was confused about the SVU thing, as I remember it the SVU had nothing to do with arresting the black guy, it was just regular NYC cops. So why is Benson to blame for what another department did?

Much like crazy restaurant lady, I'm also wondering why nobody seems to be wearing their mask in the SVUniverse.

The real answer is that nobody wants to watch tv where all the actors faces are covered by masks, it's the same reason why superheroes are constantly removing their masks or helmets in movies.

So either you ignore covid like most shows, or you make a half-hearted effort to acknowledge it like SVU does, it's silly but there really isn't any alternative.

Also, Carisi/Nicole is giving me a very uncomfortable Jim/Karen from The Office vibe. After pining after Rollins, he gets himself a nice beautiful girlfriend who he's compatible with and makes sense with, while Rollins remains single. Everyone around Rollins thinks that they're together because cHeMiStRy or whatever. I hope Carisi is moving on, rather than "settling". And yet, I could totally see him dropping Nicole like a sack of potatoes the second that Rollins gives him the time of day.

I get the feeling that Carisiís relationship with Nicole ended during that same episode, after the way she acted.
But I agree that it feels really weird for the show to go back to the Rollins relationship so many years later.

Organized Crime isn't doing anything for me, Stapler in SVU was a product of his time but bringing the character back without any growth as a person just feels boring.
Together with the constant SVU crossovers it doesn't feel like it's own show. I will check out the second season, see if it's just growing pains.

Iím surprised they even continued the Nicole relationship, it didnít exactly start well. It just seems like they wanted to introduce a love interest who was unlikable, so that they could easily get rid of her.

As I remember the Casini/Rollins relationship, it was pretty much just him acting like a lovesick puppy, and her making it clear she just wanted to be friends. Itís weird to come back to this after several years.

From what I can recall the only episode she has been in, is the one where she was introduced.
