A short video clip came through over the weekend from Neal Baer covering an episode of Law & Order SVU, “Sugar” and featuring Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay. Maybe now my feelings that the show is catering to a much younger crowd and maybe dumbing it down in the process have been confirmed. I think this shtick went out with the movie “Porky’s” (the “Mike Hunt” scene), and with grade school.
The link to the Neal’s video clip from "Sugar” is here , and for those of you who can’t get it to play, here’s what is said:
Immature Dork #1: “That geocacher…is a legend”
Immature Dork #2: “But he only goes by a nickname on his…on his website. (Benson and Stabler look on, quizzically) The Master Baiter.”
Immature Dork #1, giggling and can’t contain it: “Every time! It’s genius! “
Elsewhere, Stabler is on a store PA system, with Benson looking with a half smirk: “Attention employees! Will The Master Baiter please report to register one! (store clerks look around) Master Baiter, register one!”
Store employees look around, and when one nerdy guy moves to approach register one, Benson takes the microphone and says: “ Not ”A” masturbator, THE Master Baiter. “
OK, I don’t write the stuff, I’m just typing it out for you.
By the way, Neal Baer also changed the order of the episodes that her previously named and added two more:
Episode 1: Unstable
Episode 2: Sugar
Episode 3: Solitary
Episode 4: Hammered
Episode 5: Hardwired
Episode 6: Anchor
Episode 7: Tradecraft
Episode 8: Users
That’s that latest. Now I am off to work on my summary of AMC’s “Mad Men”, you know, it’s a TV show with “big people” scenarios and dialog.
(My sarcasm aside, I think it’s great that Neal is providing these kinds of things for the fans in advance of the shows! )
