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!!!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
