Law and Order SVU - Episode 15.17 - Gambler's Famllacy - Review

First, I want to say to the writers you did an awesome job!
This wasn't a normal Law and Order SVU episode. It was fast paced, with the feel of a film versus a TV show.  The plot of the episode touched base on the addiction of gambling. In this episode even though there was a rape victim, I feel that Rollins was a victim herself. She got sucked in by her addiction – someone took advantage, and got her in so deep that Rollins almost lost everything  including her job.

Rollins ended up at a underground club and lost $15,000.  A young waitress recognized her and told the owner of the club that Rollins was a cop. They instantly thought she's undercover for Vice. To prove that she was off duty and was just there to gamble they gave Rollins a series of tasks. That's when the pace of the show picked up and every mistake and tasks that Rollins did, lead her down a path of self destruction.

This was where the brilliant writers came into play, and what I was talking about earlier when I said this episode had the feel of a film versus a TV show. The plot had one steady, flowing story line, with a huge plot twist towards the end that changed the viewers prospective.

I love when the writers do episodes like Gambler's Famllacy. It teaches people about the addiction of gambling, and how quickly someone can spiral out of control. Awesome Job Everyone, to the Actors which includes Guest Star Donal Logue, the Writers, the Producers and the Director!!!
