Law & Order: SVU Will Return on September 26

Law & Order: SVU is not only the longest running series in the Law & Order franchise, but the longest cable-network show with twenty-one seasons. The Dick Wolf show is a binge-worthy obsession for many, including myself. We’ll have another new season to watch Olivia Benson and her squad take down bad guys. With everything happening in the world, it’ll be interesting to see what real-life stories the show takes inspiration from to adapt. The Twitter page has announced that Law & Order: SVU will return for our viewing pleasure September 26of this year. These cases won’t crack themselves. Season

Is It Time to Bring Back Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU?

Back when it was announced that Christopher Meloni was leaving Law & Order: SVU, many couldn’t believe that the long-standing crime-show could last. Among those skeptical was the person writing this article – me. Meloni had played Elliot Stabler for twelve seasons and although the series had a handful of great cast members, its bread and butter was Stabler and Benson. The hot-headed family man was, a lot of times; what was needed in many cases when dealing with the most despicable of perps on the show. His chemistry with Mariska Hargitay was unreal and although Stabler and Olivia Benson

Law & Order: SVU’s Executive Producer Teases a Sonny Carisi Romance

Law & Order: SVU’s episode last night was emotionally packed, to say the least. Alta Kockers was the long-running show’s fall finale and now we’ll have to wait until January of 2019 for the show to pick back up. Season twenty has had some really good episode and some boring ones, but last night’s was intense and I definitely smell Emmy’s in the air, especially for guest stars Wallace Shawn and Judd Hirsch. Of course, we as viewers want to know what we can expect for the upcoming episode. One Twitter user decided to ask and executive producer Julie Martin

SVU Star Peter Scanavino Opens Up About Possible Carisi Romance

Law and Order: SVU opened up its 20th season with two explosive episodes. Now competing with the original Law and Order series for longest-running drama on the network, the show in the past five years has gone through some character changes. One of those has become a fan favorite – Dominick Carisi aka Sonny. Portrayed by Peter Scanavino, the actor was only meant to come on short-term while Danny Pino’s character Nick Amaro was demoted. After five episodes, Carisi was so well loved that he was promoted to series regular. Since season sixteen, we’ve seen little bits and pieces of

Movie Review: Zenith (2010)

Zenith by Anonymous is a 2010 independent film presented essentially as a secretive tape about solving conspiracy theories. With different components to the film, such as branched out storylines and video recordings, this is a movie that you could potentially write off as a “student-film”, but the concept is in fact, incredibly interesting. When I say student film, I don’t mean a student actually made it, rather the movie is more like a project than an actual Hollywood movie, which is in no way an insult, rather a compliment. In Zenith, humans have been genetically enhanced to always be happy.

Peter Scanavino: A Career in Law & Order

Ever since Peter Scanavino walked on set in season sixteen of the long-running crime show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Detective Dominick “Sonny” Carisi, he’s been a fan favorite. The Italian-American from Staten Island who offers his teammates food and takes care of his co-workers’ children is hard to dislike. This character was meant to only come on briefly, but has been in the show for the last four seasons, including the upcoming twentieth season. Although we all love Carisi, Scanavino has had a long run in the Law & Order franchise. While he’s been in other movies
