      Some episodes of Law & Order SVU really do get you thinking. This was the case on tonight’s episode “Retro.

        the very beginning of this episode was a bit sad.

        But, I did like that one kid’s comments toward the end about God creating doctors and cures and wondering why people would think he wouldn’t want us to use them.

        This is definitely an episode worth watching.
