I love Law & Order: SVU. It's my favorite L&O. However, I must rant about it briefly. They have this gimmick where they use a real headline as the basic plot for the episode. They call it "ripped from the headlines." Originally, I thought this was an interesting idea. Now it seems they do this every single week. They just make me think that they weren't creative enough to come up with their own plot, so they just took one from the newspaper. Though I can't really blame them, with all the crime dramas on TV and all the episodes of L&O alone, there can't possibly be many more crimes that can be committed. What will happen when every possible crime has been done on L&O? Huh? What will we do then?!
