I haven’t done a ‘This Week’s Crush’ in quite a while so I thought it was time I brought it back with a bang of the gravel.
For the past month, I’ve been watching old episodes of Law & Order: SVU. It started with just one or two episodes a week, but it has now increased to 1-2 episodes a night on nights that I’m at home. It has even pushed my CNN obsession aside, although not International Desk for reasons I’ve blogged about in a previous TWC. The reason for this is the gorgeously intelligent sometimes kinda scary A.D.A Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March). It seems I’ve developed a thing for dominant blondes.
Smart, sexy, passionate and oh yes, those gorgeous glasses. Even when beaten up and then pulled out of bed and had her world torn apart she manages to look gorgeous.
Then there is the not really subtext, but oh dear gods do we wish that there was between Alex Cabot and Detective Olivia Benson. Thank god for the world of fanfiction.
She also gets some great one-liners, thanks to the writers who manage to inject some humor into a rather depressing subject matter.
So, any questions? Yes, you. What? Objection! Overruled? Are you kidding me? Fine, withdrawn.
