Law & Order: SVU + Mush-mush = Notsogood

Our PVR is set up to automatically record new episodes of whatever show is programmed. This morning, I woke up to a new SVU (my fav of all of the Law and Orders because they often get the super-bad guy and I appreciate the revenge violence) and was excited because it'd been a while since I'd seen an episode.

Everything was going along and it looked like it was going to be a good episode.

Then.

Mischa Barton appeared...as a prostitute?

Needless to say, I was more than a little surprised and it jumped me out of the show and into the critical part of my brain - as she was the most unconvincing prostitute I'd ever seen.

Who made that casting choice?

It was bad.
Really bad.
Really, really.
Bad.

I'm pretty sure that her career isn't what she'd imagined it would be - frankly - she never should have left the OC (not that I watched it, but lots of other people seemed to) and maybe it's time she considered retirement.

SVU is a great show that covers some pretty horrific (yet very realistic) situations and the whole point of sitting through all of the ugliness is to have the happy ending and Ms. Barton RUINED that for me (because she was. without a doubt. the worst "acting" prostitute I'd ever seen).

Here's hoping that there won't be a Mush-mush sequel.
