How SVU can follow up last week's episode with this one is beyond me. It's a shame this script couldn't have been a victim of the writers strike. This week, a man is found dead from asphyxiation in his apartment. There are many suspects, including the troubled teen from the homeless shelter for gay runaways, the personal assistant who moved the victim's body to make the scene less embarassing and the victim's boyfriend, who is a professional football player. Oh but don't forget there's the much advertised appearance by Bill Pullman and much ado about the possibility of a gay football player and what that means for his career. If you still remember there's a dead victim, you've already done a better job than the usually focused detectives of the Special Victims Unit.
