SVU Video: Watch Munch's Uncut 5-Minute Roast

Get More: Uncategorized

If you’re bad at goodbyes, Law & Order: SVU boss Warren Leight is here to give you just a little bit more of Sgt. John Munch.

The morning after the NBC procedural bid adieu to Richard Belzer‘s character — who retired from SVU to serve as a special investigator for the DA’s office — Leight released this extended version of the squad’s “roast” of the veteran lawman. Having watched the for-broadcast and now this version, I marvel at how warm and real everyone involved made this scene, probably because it was actors saying “farewell” to a longtime friend as well.

Another great moment came at hour’s end, when, as Munch packed up his things, he flashed back to his very early days and then accidentally answered the desk phone with, “Homicide!”

While there are no immediate plans for Belzer to resurface on the drama, the door was left open for Munch to work with the SVU squad in the future.

  • The “Homicide” bit was classic and made me wish that somehow, someone over at TNT would pick up and play the entire series again not just the crossover episodes.

  • I also loved the flashback to Homicide.One of the cable/satellite stations had Homicide on a few years ago. Andre Braugher as Pembleton still scares me!!
