I hate procedural shows with a passion. They’re lazily written, and for people with microscopic attention spans, and I’ve never seen one that had a mystery that was anywhere near actually interesting. The two best examples of this are the CSI and Law and Order franchises, which have spawn probably six or seven shows between them. Some are better than others, but Law and Order SVU is the most ridiculous to me. Every crime is somehow sex related, which is supposed to make it more interesting I guess, but the show is just awful.
This is best exemplified by this clip which shows what Law and Order thinks of video gamers. It’s every stereotype in the book, including the fact that the guy says “Pause Game” in the middle of a regular conversation. How the hell do shows like this last for eleven years?
