This show is really good. However, there are so many actors from other shows and movies I've watched playing one-episode parts...anb they do it several different times, playing several different people. How can a guy be a defense attorney, an FBI Special Agent, and a business man in the space of two years? Is there really enough time in the day for all those things?

And that was definitely just Robin Williams playing a murderer.

This guy, except in SVU and not in the movie Toys:

Look, all of the various Law and Order series have traditionally reused character actors and the like.

It's just their way.

I have seen literally every character from The Wire on this show. Weebay played two different people, even weird minor characters are popping up all over the place. I like it when they play the same kind of character on the original show they were in and on SVU. Andy from Weeds played pretty much exactly the same guy except this time he was a rapist or whatever.

That's why I like our good friend Detective John Munch. He's been that character on like 50 shows.

I think Liza should watch that and tell us how it compares.

Umm.


I like how it's still red white and blue even though Russia hates America.

It's a Russian 'Z'. And it's white, blue, and red because those are the colors of the Russian flag. In that order.

It so is. Bonus points to anyone who can find the corresponding American SVU scene.

It's the Party Day, Picture Day, Special Day guy. Probably one of the best early episodes. Do I get to cash in the bonus points or how does this work?

The assignment was to actually find the scene, not to simply describe it.
