Law & Or­der: SVU

Thurs­day, Ten, 9pm

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

Law & Or­der is known for keep­ing its fin­gers on the pulse of hot is­sues – or as some see it, us­ing sto­ries on the news as fod­der for their show. Tonight’s episode was ap­par­ently in­spired by Bruce Jen­ner’s trans­for­ma­tion into a woman, but it might be hard to draw a straight com­par­i­son with this de­press­ing story of teenage boy Avery long­ing to be a woman and the thought­less ac­tions of an­other youth, who preys on the “dude in a dress” for his own grat­i­fi­ca­tion. There is no glam­our here, only shocked and sad faces, as de­tec­tives Olivia (Mariska Har­gi­tay) and Sonny (Peter Scanavino) head to court.
