John Oliver Puts ‘Law And Order’ On Blast For ‘Fantasy’ Show

“Within the prison justice system, sexually based mostly offenses are thought of particularly heinous. In New York Metropolis, the devoted detectives who examine these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad generally known as the Particular Victims Unit. These are their tales.” [Dun dun!] – Dick Wolf’s Legislation & Order: SVU

“Within the prison justice system, sexually based mostly offenses are thought of particularly heinous. In New York Metropolis, the devoted detectives who examine these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad generally known as the Particular Victims Unit. These are their tales.” [Dun dun!] – Dick Wolf’s Legislation & Order: SVU

Everybody is aware of that introduction, however because it seems, most real-life investigations of sexually-based offenses (or any offenses) aren’t neatly tied up in a story that runs about an hour. That doesn’t cease the Legislation & Order universe from being so wildly well-liked that the three present operating sequence are holding a massive crossover event this month. I dig the exhibits as a lot as anybody else and really a lot take pleasure in Organized Crime bringing again Elliot Stabler, who’s deftly nabbing the dangerous dudes and receiving comeuppance on the similar time. But because it seems, there’s a number of darkish fantasy (together with House of the Dragon, Lord of the Rings: The Rings Of Power, and The Sandman) on TV proper now, however the literal darkish fantasy is likely to be going down within the Dick Wolf TV universe.

For instance, an amazing proportion of Legislation & Order episodes sees the perp being readily apprehended and put to swift justice. Right here’s how John Oliver sums issues up (with a swing on the Dragnet-obsessed Dick Wolf) on the newest Final Week Tonight episode:

“[I]t blasts that fantasy at you in infinite reruns and marathons within the guise of very well-produced, extraordinarily entertaining TV. However beneath all of it, it’s a industrial (a industrial produced by a person who’s, in his personal phrases, unabashedly pro-law enforcement.”

And everybody who’s tangled with the real-life justice system is aware of that the wheels get caught in molasses. Hearings get continued, dockets are crowded, regulation enforcement isn’t good (neither is anybody else), and there are one million circumstances outdoors of everybody’s management. Oliver’s not likely having it, although, and he defined why:

“Clearly, Legislation & Order can’t mirror that actuality. It will be unwatchable. No person desires to observe a present the place 97 % of episodes finish with two legal professionals putting a deal in a windowless room and then you definately get to observe the defendant serve six months and wrestle to get a job at their native Jiffy Lube… the one that is answerable for Legislation & Order and its model is Dick Wolf, and he is aware of precisely what he desires his exhibits to do and, importantly, to not do.”

A good level. Nonetheless, that gained’t cease anybody (even those that are pissed off by the sluggish, overwhelmed justice system) from watching the Legislation & Order crossover occasion on September 22. But perhaps we are able to watch these exhibits with a extra crucial eye, just like the Final Week Tonight deep dive does, as seen above.
