(Scene begins with a black background as words start to come to light, saying “The Last Of The Americans” and a voiceover done by James Faraci saying, “In the Internet Reviewer community, The people who review are expressing opinions based on what they have seen and experienced, and there are those with similar opinions, This is one of their voices.” Clanging noises are heard, and fade cut into The Studio where James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans, works as James Faraci walks in dressed as a Detective and Eric Kurtzke as a Police Inspector)

Det. Faraci (Played by James Faraci):
Detective Faraci and Inspector Kurtzke, What have we got? (Cut to the Forensic Scientist played by Brenda Fonseca)

The Forensic Scientist:
One suicide, mass murder.

Insp. Kurtzke (Played by Eric Kurtzke):
Let’s check out what they watched and search for the 9 MM. Handgun.

Det. Faraci:
How do you know it’s a 9 MM.?

Insp. Kurtzke:
Judging by the trajectory and entry wound through the heads, a noticeable amount of how quickly they dropped, I would have to say it was a 9 MM round that was modified to take out five out of the six in one shot. The Shooter then turned the gun on himself based on the blood spatter, and the trajectory of the final bullet was upwards as opposed towards the outside wall. (The CSI team turns on the TV as the head of the team, played by Ed Champion, shouts for Inspector Kurtzke and Detective Faraci. Everyone watches and then looks away in horror and disgust.)

Det. Faraci:
Turn that TV off! No wonder this happened. The pandering to its audience was a possible reason for the mental trauma of the victims and the gunman.

Inspector Kurtzke:
It is a possible and plausible justifiable on this one. SHUT THAT TV OFF NOW!

I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans, and the views I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. (Cut to the Opening Credit scene of “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” then clips of seasons 21-24 “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” play as the “Law & Order: SVU” theme song plays in the foreground James does a voiceover)

TLOTA (Voiceover):
The last time I reviewed “Law and Order: SVU,” The series was on solid ground. Then the past few seasons happened, and now it’s safe to say the series has started to go off the rails and is barely keeping it together. But besides the usual duct tape and the little glue holding what’s left of the series together. But is what’s happening now a product of the loss of intelligence of the human race, or is it just pandering to the lowest denominator of human intelligence to get the best ratings in a world where terrestrial TV viewings are being supplanted by how many times it’s being streamed and how many people are watching it streaming?

What is keeping SVU together at this point? What is going on with where James is and how does it all tie together? Find out here
