‘Law and Order: SVU’ Marathons That Need To ExistErin Mallory Long

My bios on the internet do not lie. I WOULD like to submit my resume for curator of Law & Order: SVU Marathons. While watching a marathon called “The Up All Night” Marathon that appeared to just be comprised of episodes where the gang was working into the night, I decided it was time to actually think about what SVU marathons I want to make.

Please consider this my application to turn my dream into a job.

  • Jerky Spoiled Brats Are the Perps
  • Hey! Maybe the Guest Star Did It!
  • Olivia Benson Has Perfect Hair Always
  • More Like UN-Stabler, Am I Right?
  • Actors From Lost [Seriously, so many people from Lost have appeared on SVU: Michael Emerson, Naveen Andrews, Henry Ian Cusick (he’s in two as the same character!), Elizabeth Mitchell (she’s in two as DIFFERENT characters), Maggie Grace, Ian Somerhalder, Malcolm David Kelley, William Mapother. And I’m sure there are others but these are what I remembered off the top of my head.]
  • Teens Are the Worst
  • Did You Know Olivia is a Product of Rape?
  • Don’t Talk to Stabler About Child Molesters, He Will Fly Off the Handle!
  • Let’s All Go Undercover
  • Benson & Stabler Play Lovers, World Swoons
  • “We’re Not From Vice.” [Can also be “We’re Not From Narcotics”]
  • Ugh, Those Pesky Drug Cartels
  • Sister Peg Gets the Crap Beat Out of Her Again [This was a suggestion from tumblr that I’m obsessed with]
  • Munch is a Conspiracy Theorist
  • Who Are These New ADA’s? We Hate Them!
  • Hey, Do You Remember Cragen is An Alcoholic?
  • Finn Knows About Stuff No One Else Does [I love that episode, “Down Low” when Finn teaches them about being on the “down low”]
  • Someone Falls From a Building…Again
  • Wait, This Story Sort of Sounds Like it Was Ripped From the Headlines!
  • A Rapist Attacks Via a Fire Escape
  • You Look REALLY Familiar [All the episodes where people have been in multiple episodes as different characters: Hayden Panettiere, Kyle MacLachlan, Diane Neal, Sarah Hyland…I know there are more…]
  • Someone Can’t Handle Working SVU Cases Anymore
  • Surprise! Stabler Got Shot Again! [Remember when he’s literally THROWN FROM A BUILDING but survives?]
  • LOL, These Guys are Using Internet Slang!
  • “Wildlife” [This is where they just play the episode “Wildlife” on repeat for the length of a marathon]

  1. There is a marathon on right now called “The Red Carpet Marathon” for the Emmys… Reminded me of this post!

    I just went to the tumblr link… “Aw Shit Kathy’s Mad” would make an AWESOME marathon.
    Cuz it happens so often.
    And it makes a great Benson/Stabler episode, which is always fantabulous.

  3. I just have to thank you. I love, love, LOVE SVU. I am in love that it is on netflix and it can be L&O: SVU 24/7. I’d say it would have to be a marathon about the best one liners…. SVU has the greatest deadpan delivery….

  4. I love this list How about “Episodes when Stabler is forced to go to counselling for beating/harassing/whatever a suspect”

  5. “Let’s complain about the Feds getting in the way”

  6. “Olivia is the perp’s type”

  7. “Dates that Olivia’s excited about, but everyone knows she’ll never make it to. Ever.”

  8. “Hey! Maybe the Guest Star Did It!” YES.

  9. Loose Ends: all the episodes that leave you longing for closure because it ends without a verdict or knowing what happens to the perp.

  10. Can you make sure there is one for “Let’s be honest: Stabler is not that great of a dad” ?

  11. The calming words of Dr. Huang always brings justice

  12. Benson & Stabler play good cop/bad cop so the perp spills it all to Stabler

  13. Olivia and ADA sexual tension

  14. Gah, Tuesdays are better because of Law and Order: SVU marathons.
