Law & Order: SVU Recap: Liv and Let Liv?

NUP_157498_0330.JPGNBC kicked off Law & Order: SVU‘s 15th season with two back-to-back episodes. This recap only covers the first of those hours.

As one would hope, the 15th season premiere of Law & Order: SVU resolves the cliffhanger with which the 14th season finale left us. But, as absolutely no one would hope, before that happens, we’re forced to watch Olivia get tortured for an hour. Here’s the blow by (sometimes literal) blow.

RUDE AWAKENING | As the episode opens, a bloodied and bruised Liv regains consciousness only to discover that serial rapist Billy has her tied to a chair in her apartment. “Leave now,” she more or less suggests, “and we’ll pretend this never happened.” When that tactic doesn’t work — and Billy reveals that Brian left a message saying that he’s working a double shift — Liv panics. “You think you put people through hell,” she hisses. Hurt a cop, and “it will rain back down on you!”

PLAYING DETECTIVE | Meanwhile, at the precinct, everybody figures out that, er, nobody’s heard from Liv in awhile, so Cragen sends Finn and Rollins to check on her. Discovering Liv’s place trashed — and Liv herself MIA — her colleagues begin a manhunt that takes them from Billy’s halfway house to his lawyer’s parents’ home. (The dad, Billy’s murdered; the mom, he’s raped… while making Liv watch.)

MIND GAMES | Cuffing Liv to an iron-frame bed in an unoccupied beach house, Billy delights in informing her that she won’t survive her ordeal. In response, she says he might want to keep her alive. She’s done so much research on him that, better than anyone, she knows what turns him on. Unfortunately, he wises up by the time she asks him to uncuff her so that she can struggle the way that he likes.

DO-OR-DIE TIME | When a cleaning lady and her little girl show up at the beach house, momentarily distracting Billy, Liv manages to break the bed and get the drop on her assailant. But what does she do next? What should she do? Waffling aloud, she admits that she envies Stabler, because he, of course, would know exactly what to do in this situation. “That,” Billy groans, “is the saddest thing I’ve heard in my life.”

IF YOU CAN’T BEAT ’EM… | Finally, after relating the tale of the first rape he ever witnessed (courtesy of dear ol’ dad), Billy pushes Liv too far by scoffing that she doesn’t “have the balls” to do him in. Which she kinda doesn’t. Though she beats him till she thinks he’s dead… he still lives. Later, she lies to IA that she pummeled him because he tried to escape custody and gives herself a bob a la Newsroom’s post-traumatic-stressed Maggie.

Okay, your turn. What did you think of the season premiere? Certainly, Mariska Hargitay did some fine work, but the episode as a whole was hardly SVU at its best, was it? And, since Billy lived, don’t you imagine that we’ll see him again, probably as the plaintiff in a lawsuit against his “attacker”? Vote in our poll and then hit the comments to support your grade!

  1. Esaul says:

    Not its best, agreed but made use of Belzer more. And it shows Mariska still had it after so many years.

  2. Pat D. says:

    Man, I will be the first to admit that Mariska blew me away in the episode. I’ve seen every SVU episode since the beginning and I’ll be damned if this wasnt far and away the best she’s ever played since the beginning. I’ve always considered her a bit overrated by some as an actress, but I think we have our performer of the week, easily.

    Well, at least until BB finale on Sunday, LOL.

    • Mary says:

      Where can I watch this episode, as my sky froze and I missed the last half tried all chanels but cant find it some one please help

  3. Rob Horine says:

    This was the toughest, most illness inducing, gut wenching hour of TV I’ve seen in 20 years. Mariska pumped it to 11. Get ready to say “Best Actress in a Drama- Mariska Hargitay!”.

  4. Pat D. says:

    One thing that did bother me slightly is that they quite obviously set up a future episode (May sweeps?) where she has to face her tormenter again, by allowing him to live (in prison). It would be more of a problem if Pablo hadnt done such a great job with the character.

  5. Jenna says:

    Wow. Mariska went above and beyond in this epi. Very intense. And Pablo Schreiber is becoming one of my favorite tv actors. Thankfully no pornstache here. But the guy is crazy good. Every time they said ‘Lights Out’ I got a call back to his short lived FX series. Really looking forward to seeing him on Ironside.

    Well done, Miss Hargitay! Let the Emmy campaign begin.

  6. BamaEd says:

    I actually hated this episode so much I had to turn it off. It was like watching the movie Saw or Hostel or some sort of Eli Roth torture fantasy. My gosh, they’ve done everything to Olivia but give her a puppy and then take it away from her. It was just all too much abuse.

    • tanya says:

      They DID give her a child and take it away from her though.

    • Jovi says:

      It was far too graphic for it’s time slot. There are still youngsters up until 9 p.m. in the midwest where L&O airs at 8. And not all of them are watching in a room with their parents. JMO

      • David4 says:

        It’s not NBC’s job to be a babysitter. Watch your children, watch what they are watching or don’t complain.

        There are youngsters up at midnight too, it’s called bad parenting. I was told to go to bed by 9pm until I was 10 years old. The show is rated TV MA or TV 14, you can block it, or let your children watch it. But you can’t let children watch it after being warned and then complain that they watched it.

      • Nic says:

        You can block the show from children with parental controls. They shouldn’t be watching a show about people being raped and killed weekly anyways.

      • Jennifer says:

        The show had a disclaimer/parental type of warning well before it even started. It clearly stated that this episode was graphic and had material not suited for all viewers. Viewers were warned, it’s up to the parent to parent, not the show. What more do you want?

    • Pat says:

      Your words could have come from my mouth! Too much for good entertainment with young teens in the room. Seems to me it would have made more sense for her to kill him “in self defense” in order to protect the rest of the world from him in the future.

    • TMT says:

      I agree with you. I turned it off because it became too grotesque and almost S&M porn-like. One more horrific trauma for Liv to endure then get right back on the job!

      • SU says:

        Uhm, people seem to forget she’s a cop. Special Victims Unit cop.

        She’s seen a whole lot of bad mess going on previous to experiencing it herself.

        Many cops do get back to work even after seeing or being part of the weirdest, nastiest crimes ever.

        They just get counseling and go back right on.

        Those that can’t manage leave the force or kill themselves. :(

        SVU is a police procedural drama. They can’t sugarcoat it too much or they’d be unrealistic.

        And as for another comment that compared SVU to Hostel and Saw…?

        Whoa. Watch Hostel and Saw again, please.

  7. Mariska Hargitay has been the heart and soul of SVU since the very beginning and I really hope that NBC should give L&O: SVU a “final season” because Season 15 has already begun. Don’t know if this series goes beyond more than 15.

  8. Jenna says:

    I also liked the Stabler references. :)

  9. Sunshine says:

    Mariska was incredible, as always. I loved the Stabler references. I do wish she would have made a reference to contacting him later about what happened or something. Would have loved even a brief cameo of them sitting and talking on his front porch. This is only the third ep I’ve watched since he left. I just wasn’t able to get into SVU again with the 2 new detective. I like the actors from seeking them in other shows but just could never get back into what once was one of my fav shows.
    I think the dynamic of benson and stabler is what I liked the most…
    I had no problem with the ever evolving cast of the original L&O but SVU… The team of Benson and Stabler is what had me coming back every week…

  10. seuss says:

    I just still miss Stabler and Olivia together! He could have rescued her. Oh, what might have been.

  11. Gabby says:

    I love L&O:SVU, however this episode was not what I expected it to be, and not in a good way either. Maybe that is because too much emphasis was put on how mind blowing the season15 premiere is going to be. It raised my expectations too much. Though I will definitely say that Mariska was fabulous in this episode, and now we have the same hair cut!

    • Esaul says:

      Her haircut reminds me of the earlier seasons.

    • Nayma says:

      I agree with you. It wasn’t at all what I expected. I also agree that Mariska did fantastic in her role. I just didn’t like they way they left a lot out. They never even showed the perp all bloodied up frong Benson pulverizing him with that iron pole. I wanted to see that. I didn’t like the opening of the show – when they showed them in her apt….she was already taped up and apparently had been severely abused, but they didn’t show that part. They never showed him burning her with cig’s or branding her. I’m not a sicko or anything, it’s just that the actors did interviews on youtube and Ice said what they taped was so bad that he didn’t know if NBC was going to air it all. I guess they decided not to. But it left me confused. I know they did a rape kit on Olivia, but when she was talking to her therapist, she said she wasn’t raped, she said she was assaulted. I assume that is denial. They never even partially showed anything leading us to believe she was raped. Where was Miss idiot Attorney he had? They never showed her finding out about her father being murdered or show her with her mother after she was raped and tortured by him. Fail. I still love this show and always will….I was just disappointed with the hype before the premier, only to be let down with the way it was aired.

      • RH says:

        I get what you are saying… I’m thinking that we will see a lot of what actually happened during her ordeal in future episodes during flashbacks… I think they showed a few in the 2nd part already that were new to us. I find that I often want more of the personal connection to show between the main characters – and sometimes they just seem so “stand-offish” with each other.

      • Terry says:

        I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Miss Idiot Attorney, there will be a reckoning somewhere down the line, I’m sure.

      • sboz says:

        Nayma, I agree with everything you said!! That is exactly how I feel about it. There was a lot of HYPE about the premier. SVU is awesome, but I think they could have done better with the details.

  12. Joe says:

    The abuse that Olivia has had to take over the life of the series shows me that the writers have run out of ideas. I thought it was AWFUL !!

    • Jovi says:

      All or most of their plots are taken directly from recent real news, as was the second hour. More evidence that few writers have anything original to say.

      • David4 says:

        But the creators are also trying to get more people to come out and talk about rape and violence because we pretend it doesn’t happen and then it goes unreported. So taking real news and showing it on a TV series helps get word out.

      • LC says:

        L&O’s tag line has always been “ripped from the headlines”. That’s the point of the show is take relevant and CURRENT news headlines and create a story around them. I thought they did a really nice job with the second hour story. Really gives you some insight into how the three girls rescued from Arial Castro may have dealt with the situation and depended on each other.

      • Kayla says:

        I liked say this is T.V. not a movie. In the movies they can show all that trama but on T.V there are laws stating how much violence they can show with each rating. If they would have showed anymore they would have had to change the rating to R or N/R. If it is rated R they can’t show it a nine because kids are still up.
        I just watched it and I liked it but it felt rushed and very unfocsed. I felt like the writers really didn’t know what to say next. The scenes were sometimes confusing to follow or try or try to finger what was going happen next. All in all, it was a good espisod.

    • Morisot says:

      It was worse than awful.

  13. Alexandra says:

    I missed the episode, was Olivia raped? and please tell me that she is not with Cassidy? I hate him…

  14. para says:

    love the maggie reference!

  15. Chablis says:

    I wish TVline would have recappers that actually like the show.

    • Zoe says:

      Right? It would be nice if they weren’t so goshdarn nitpicky. It’s a network show, for god’s sake, there’s certain things they can’t do… not to mention they have to deal with commercial breaks.

  16. neha says:

    It was a really hard episode to watch, but it was really well done. Top-notch acting by both Mariska and Pablo. I couldn’t breathe for most of it.

  17. Olivia Rowe says:

    Respectfully, I’d like to say that if you’re gonna recap a show that’s been on for 15 years after clearly not watching regularly, you could at least do a little research to get the names right.

    Craig = Cragen.

    And I don’t recall them ever actually referring to the perp as “Billy.” Wasn’t it always Lewis/Louis?

    • Cory says:

      Olivia called him Billy.

    • Mark says:

      Kind of a big leap to assume that a type-o means a person doesn’t watch a show regularly. Especially since you then went on to get a name wrong.

      • Olivia Rowe says:

        Didn’t get his name wrong. But I did miss what Olivia called him. So for that, apologies.

        And I wasn’t basing it on a type-o. It’s clear from the recap that the reviewer isn’t a regular watcher. Which I might add is perfectly fine, assuming you’re able to back up what you talk about.


  18. Travis Pinkney says:

    I thought the episode was stupid how in the world stabler didnt come back and save benson . How is it that he didnt know it had to be all over the news and I am pretty sure that another one of the coworkers would have called him to let him know for crying out loud they was partners for years . Horrible episode I dont think ill watch again just stupid.

    • Esaul says:

      Keep in mind that they can’t actually make Stabler magically appear without contacting Meloni first to invite him back. That was never the plan. Plus even if they could, it’d be now up to Fox (or whoever produces the show I’d imagine) if he can do an episode (if Meloni does express interest) since he’s on a new show now.

  19. Dawn Zola says:

    Yes, I loved the Stabler reference as well. I had a real problem with the Episode…
    Why do they have to show those people as cold robots… they showed no emotion when she was rescued or came back to work. Come on!! Really? No one hugged her… nothing? That was just not realistic… and my biggest complaint is.. and I am surprised no one else has written this… I am from CLEVELAND OHIO!!! Did you really have to do a “copy cat” crime? Listen, this is still so fresh in a lot of hearts and minds right now… I grew up in the neighborhood that those 3 girls were taken from. IT IS TOO SOON!! Let us all heal!!! And the fact they even mentioned that Monsters name in the episode last night? Oh my God!! Come up with something a little more original!! I am so disappointed. I could not even sleep last night… Bring back STABLER!! and come up with more original stories.. I may not even continue to watch the rest of this season after last night… As soon as they went into the basement as showed the chains I knew exactly where they were going with it…. so sad!!

    • Mark says:

      To be fair, the show has, from the beginning, taken the “ripped from the headlines” approach to storytelling. I’ve gotten in the habit of, when watching news stories unfold, guessing which ones will get the L&O treatment. And while I get what you’re saying, every one of those “ripped from the headlines” cases involved real people/situations being recreated. This isn’t anything new where the story is concerned.

    • Jovi says:

      They even made the house look very similar.

    • Morisot says:

      About the scene where Olivia comes back to work: I had something traumatic happen to me. It was very difficult to go back to work. I didn’t want to look at people and see the pity. And I didn’t want people hugging me or coming up to me even. If anyone had said “How are you?” I think I would have thrown-up. I tried to be all chipper and bright. This lasted for a while. Don’t even remember what little, mundane thing opened the floodgates–and I sobbed–and that’s when most everyone surrounded me and hugged me and said they were so sorry that I had had to go through what had happened to me.

  20. Christy says:

    That creep lawyer should’ve been held responsible too.

  21. Christy says:

    As a survivor of an Assault, I put myself in Benson’s place. I could relate to her fears, her feelings. How she begged for her life. I really didn’t aggree with the first part, showing Olivia as not fighting back. But, toward the end, she showed that ugly creep who was boss and took charge and survived just like the Olivia we all know. What disappointed me, was that she didn’t take him out and kill him. But I guess that is supposed to open up more eppisodes for us to see him again.

  22. Nate says:

    Great showcase for Hargitay, but I wanted more Lauren Ambrose (aka “lawyer,” since no one has bothered to identify her yet), as I often do whenever she appears onscreen. Somebody get her a project soon!

  23. jim says:

    after a super season 14 finale and leaving us on the edge of our seats for 3 months, this episode was a bit of a letdown.we were led to believe it was a 2 hour premiere..hour 2 had nothing to do with olivia’s assault except for flashbacks lets hope the show gets better as the year goes along..the writers can do better.

    • JEst says:

      It was a two hour premier since the show just started back and was on for two hours. They never said that both hours were one episode. You just assumed.

      • jim says:

        yes you’re right i did assumed that .it was that good a story i felt that it could easily go 2 hours.but the writers i assume have a different play .i can only assume liv broke this guys legs and arms.i mean what the hell happened to louis.Is this the last of him or are they saving him for a late season ratings boost.Still waiting for Robin Williams to make a return from season 9,episode 17….Authority he disappeared behind some bushes and not seen since.. yes i have seen them all.I assume the writers think we love cliff hangers.Well maybe we do.

  24. Erika says:

    I would have liked to see her kill him if only for the issues it would bring up later. For her to have to live with that guilt… that he got to her and made her go too far. That would have been nice to see as the season unfolded rather than the set up of seeing him again.

  25. Terry says:

    Absolutely ridiculous that they wouldn’t have been tailing him the moment he was realeased. Absolutely ridiculous!

  26. mark my words says:

    She should have shot him when she had the chance and before the cuffs were on.

  27. amadeline says:

    It’s so time for Mariska to retire and give everyone else a break. I’m really tired of watching her overact everything.

    • Zoe says:

      Tell that to her legions of fans (like me) and her Emmy nominations (and her previous win.) Maybe you just can’t see a truly great actress for what she is.

    • jim says:

      Hey this is a reply to amadeline.the show can survive without Mariika but would not be the same.the entire cast does a super job.that what makes the show unrelated comment,does mariska look like she put on a few pounds?

    • Rain says:

      I’m with you! I actually gave the show up for a while because I was sick of it being the Olivia show. There was a guest star on at some point 2 years ago that drew me back in and it seemed like they had toned it down a bit so I stuck around. After the 2 hours all about her again I’m on the fence about sticking with it. I love all the other detectives so much but they never get enough screen time for me.

    • michelle zahn says:

      get moer sleep praying for you mz

  28. greg says:

    I mised the premier…Did he rape her or not? Yes or No…..
    It is soooooooooo Freakin annoying for the writers to play cat and mouse with this..
    It’s like they’re holding on to a ‘rape card’..if they think they can get future episodes based on her being raped..then she was raped…if they think the viewers want her not raped…then they’ll play THAT out…
    this is crap….not creative..not even clever..just crap

    • jenferner8 says:

      No, she wasn’t physically raped but based on what she told the shrink I think it’s safe to assume she was mentally raped. She admitted the guy got “to her” but not “like that”. He clearly got in her head which in this case was almost worse.

  29. Zoe says:

    I underestimated this show. I spent the whole summer convinced Liv was going to be raped, but as far as we know, she wasn’t- she tries to get to Lewis by commenting on that fact, saying that “we’ve been together for four days and you still can’t get it up”, and when she’s speaking to the therapist later, she admits that “other people had it worse” than her. It would’ve been awful for Liv to be raped, and I’m really relieved to see that the show knows how much this character means to many people, and how much a rape arc might hurt those people (yes, me.)

    I also loved that the whole #savebenson thing that was a promotional thing the whole summer turned out to be moot- Benson saved herself! That was the best part, that a strong woman like her still didn’t need anyone to come to her rescue- the minute Lewis let his guard down, it was all over for him.

  30. Mimi says:

    In general I loved the episode. Mariska is a wonderful actress and she certainly raised the bar in this one. Having said that, I also wish they had showed some of what had happened to her in her apt. I felt like I didn’t know enough about it. Also, why on earth didn’t someone go to her apt. and clean it for her before she returned? I can’t see that it did her any good to relive the assault when she was already reliving it every moment as it was. I’d like to see more of Lauren Ambrose’s character in S 15. I loved her on Six Feet Under and she’s only gotten better over the years. It would be satisfying to see Billy and his attorney suffer a bit for their misdeeds. All you folks who want Stabler to come back, don’t we all! But Danny Pino is terrific and I don’t think he gets eneough credit. Christopher Meloni just doesn’t want to return, or maybe he would have. It’s a shame but that’s just the way it is.

  31. webpage says:

    There’s definately a lot to learn about this issue. I like
    all the points you have made.

  32. Kristy says:

    I think Mariska was fantastic in this episode (as was Pablo) and was so glad the EP/writer(s) gave her something to really work with that could make her an Emmy contender again. If there’s anything I’ve bugged showrunner Leight about on Twitter it’s character development – after so many years diehard viewers care about these people and they deserve so much more than the “where were you last Tuesday night” schtick PLUS they’d been wasting a tremendous amount of talent for the last few years. Original golden era of SVU, IMO, was seasons 4 thru 9. Lots of good E/O dynamic, sometimes intense other times subtle but profound. S. 10 – 12 got pretty stagnant with a few stellar moments. S. 13 – new cast – bit of an awkward season but tho I was severely mourning El, it was an improvement over what was becoming routine (and I think that was all Dick Wolf/Neal Baer and that worn out “Moonlighting Curse” excuse – El and Liv were always a more personal draw for fans – so reducing their parts to mere procedural drained a lot of energy from the show the last two years with Baer .. Last season was very good for the most part, especiallly because they focused on more character development among the regular cast and delved deeper into both Amaro and Rollins (excellent additions). A few good moments for Mariska but I was really getting disappointed they weren’t giving her enough challenging material and allowing Benson to stagnate a bit.

    The first our of the premiere was phenomenal — writing, acting, all of it, IMO. Second hour had its moments but I NEVER like the “2 months later” jump. If they continue to use flashbacks, episodes into the season to expose more of the ordeal – and just as importantly – the first two months of her recovery even if it wasn’t at the precinct. As for “was she raped” – I agree with someone above who said denial. And her definitively calling it assault and not rape. It would not make sense to me for Lewis to have had her as long as he did betfore moving her to the second location and not strip or humiliate her, try to force oral, or brutally penetrate with an object if he in fact couldn’t get it up. I could see Benson, in ref to herself and because of her mother and all the other victims, refusing to call it rape because in her opinion forced sex would have been the absolute worst. Also, why have the rape kit done at all. Only real explanation would be she was out of it for periods of time and/or there was some damage done (object).

    Mariska was amazing … Pablo,too. I give hour 1 a 10 plus, hour 2 an 8, which I might upgrade if they continue to give us more info thru the rest of the season. OH – and I thought the squads reactions when she first came back were very realistic. They were uncomfortable, feeling guilty, not knowing how she’d react to a physical approach – esp. in the precinct – and Benson is known for being stoic, strong, proud – it would have been humiliating for her. Filling in the two month gap — I could realistically see them calling to check on her often (maybe mostly thru Brian) and, on a one-on-one basis coming to see her – esp. Cap, Munch, Fin . Love the show – miss El, if this was the final season I wish he’d make an appearance. As someone said above, Stabler would’ve heard about it on the news at the very least. But I don’t imagine Stabler’s been much more than a tortured soul these past two years (if you want to invent an off-cam storyline) – probably more of a drinker than he used to be and fairly miserable family life. I could see hearing about Liv sending him on a real bender. And two years just isn’t enough time for him to be over what he went thru end s.`12. I’d even be surprised if he was still married to Kathy….

  33. Lewis to Benson-You would do ANYTHING to see someone else right now, it’s not your dad or your boyfriend! Did I hear Elliot Stabler’s name ring through somewhere after this statement was made? Olivia did not have a smart come back for this nerve racking remark that Lewis dump on her, because it was the truth! Took another PERP to expose the truth about Benson and Stabler’s feelings for each other! Thanks to psycho Lewis, the painful E/O truth is present and there for everyone to see once again.The look on her face and in her beautiful brown eyes said it all! Here is another one; Lewis-What about your old partner? He songs very macho! Benson-You don’t get to talk about him! Benson got real defensive here! Lewis-All those long nights in the car, did he EVER do you? He did, didn’t he? Lewis still taunting her; Lewis- YOU STILL WANT HIM?!I can hear it in your voice, you’re all bottle up! Holy Crap! When I thought that was the end of Benson being OUST on her feelings for Stabler, she ousted herself to the psychologist by saying to him and I quote “He kept taunting me but he still got to me, but not the way you think.” When Olivia said that, I had a strong feeling she was not talking about her assault, she was referring to Lewis getting into her head about her feelings for Stabler! This whole scenario was EPIC!They need to bring Stabler back, those remarks seal the E/O deal for me! Great season 15 so far. I agree with most of your comments Kristy. And I hope we get some E/O action soon!

  35. Victori says:

    I do not like shows where the star is in jeopardy. There is no suspense. Very few shows kill off the popular lead. Boring.

  36. Did anyone else found it strange that Benson’s psychologist give her an over eight-hundred dollar necklace?I felt it was inappropriate and extremely out of character!Unheard of as a matter of fact.With the amount of stress most of us seemed to be getting from watching the out of character and unbelievable scenarios unfold on SVU,rather that staying at home consuming large amounts of Pepto Bismol and alcohol!I think we all should switch and invest in a Shrink if it means we would be getting an expensive piece of jewelry at the end of the session!Lol!

    • what was that necklace?

      • The necklace is the Fearlessness necklace that she always wear,this one is rectangular rather the horizontal like the original one she started to wear in the earlier episodes and still does on occasion.The necklace was either loss or damaged when Lewis held her hostage,so I guess this is why the psychologist replaced it.I still think this was inappropriate,if one of the team or even her boyfriend had replaced it,that would have been a more realistic scenario.Just saying.

    I don’t care what anyone says, I think that the writers did a great job with the finale and premiere, Yes, they could’ve shown more of what happend but that just built at the suspence. I think we’d agree Mariska Hargitay did an amazing job, I absolutely love SVU, and Olivia Benson(hargitay),I loved how they refered to chris’s character Elliot Stabler as him leaving was hard, but Danny Pino is an amazing actor aswell, and I like Kelli giddish’s charcter ‘rollins’. Obviously I wouldve liked to see chris again, but come on how many shows do we know that is on their 15th season, not many let’s say that!, and their still going, I think its ever lasting show! Well done is all I have to say!:)
