'Law & Order: SVU': Should NBC have kept the Kathy Griffin/Mariska Hargitay kiss?


One week ago, NBC released video of a same-sex kiss between Mariska Hargitay and guest star Kathy Griffin in an effort to promote last night's return of Law & Order: SVU. But it didn't happen! The U.S. telecast cut directly from Kathy going in for the kiss to Mariska being all 'Back off, bitch!' Or, in Law & Order language (LOL): Whoa, whoa, whoa, now. That's not on the menu. I'm personally more outraged at the cheesy dialogue throughout and Benson's 'I wouldn't go in there if I were you' warning than by NBC's weird decision here. What do you think? Should NBC have kept the kiss? And will this show ever get the gay thing right?

Hmm... Olivia on SVU has had a similar albeit less conspicuous lesbian following than Zena (probably less obvious because Zena was such a crap show.) But part of the fun was the sight ambiguity of the female characters. This plot sets up the possibility that Olivia may have some further revelations about her sexuality and may create some more suspense to wonder if we ever will see her involved with a woman. Perhaps we'll have to wait longer to see a kiss... but thanks ever so much for the link!

i though the episode got the lesbian thing all wrong , i mean the leader is a weirdo , who doesn't represent any type of lesbian leaders i have ever seen or heard of , and they make her into this talkative obnoxious person who wanna make out wz everyone and then she is bi , wth .and the other one likes to beat people up & hates men , come on! and i dont think they are offering a begging for further speculation about olivia its so obvious that she is staying str8 i think they just wanna get some attention thats all.
