Chris Meloni Returns as Elliot Stabler for Law and Order Spin-Off and Reunion Preview

Elliot Stabler is back and this time with his own show. NBC released the first promo for the upcoming Law and Order: SVU spin-off.

Christopher Meloni who played Elliot Stabler on the hit show Law and Order: SVU is making his return to the Law and Order Universe and we could not be more excited.

Meloni who played Elliot Stabler on SVU left the series in 2011 due to not reaching an agreement during contract negotiations between production and the actor. After Meloni left the show fans of the beloved series were devastated as they enjoyed every minute of the beloved chemistry between Stabler (Meloni Character) and his partner Oliva Benson (played by Mariska Hagitay).

The two were partners on the show from Season 1 which debuted in 1999 through season 12 which aired in 2011. Now in 2021, it has been 10 years since the two characters appeared on our screen.

In the promo, we see Benson (Mariska Hargitay character) at a crime scene and she hears “Liv!” shouted from in the distance. It is stabler (Meloni character) calling out her name with Benson replying “Elliot”.
Both Meloni and Hargitay have provided fans a sneak peak of the upcoming reunion by posting photos from set on social media over the last couple of months. Hargitay and showrunner Warren Leight teased an upcoming reunion between the two characters by posting a photo from a table read via zoom with Stabler and Benson on the same call with the rest of the cast. Leight ended his tweet with “Oh, and @Mariska and @Chris_Meloni” confirming both of them were on the call.

The on-screen reunion between these two characters will play out during a special crossover of Law and Order SVU to introduce Meloni’s new show. The crossover event begins Thursday April 1, 2021 at 9 pm on NBC with Law and Order SVU and then the official premiere of Law and Order: Organized Crime immediately following at 10 PM.

Disney+ Crashes During WandaVision Season Finale

As fans tried to tune into the finale of Disney’s WandaVision, technical difficulties prevented some users from watching the premiere at midnight.

On Thursday night, Disney+ subscribers were eager to watch the final episode of WandaVision. The 9-episode Marvel spinoff following Wanda Maximoff (aka the Scarlet Witch) and Vision has been an absolute hit, with the show trending weekly on social media during each Friday episode release. Many viewers rush to stream the show as soon as the clock hits midnight.

However, some of them weren’t able to watch the finale right when it dropped. Instead of seeing the opening title, fans were met with error messages displayed on their screens. Some people expressed their frustration on Twitter, as some users waited hours to view the highly anticipated finale.

It seemed that most of the crashes affected those on the U.S. West Coast, according to reports from IGN. Downdetector, a site that tracks technical issues at streaming services and websites, noted a spike in reports from around the time the episode was made available.

While fans have raised concerns about Disney+ instability within past weeks, many would have hoped to watch the finale hassle-free. That aside, WandaVision has already become a fan favorite within the Marvel cinematic universe. You can watch the official trailer here.

Mike’s Quarantine Top 10: TV Picks

From nostalgic family-friendly programming to competition shows and documentaries. Here’s what I’ve been watching during the quarantine.

Like everyone else, the KCR Staff has been self-quarantining, hunkered down in our respective living spaces, carefully planning grocery store trips, and six feet physical distancing self workouts in our neighborhood. And like everyone else, I’ve been watching a lot of shows during my downtime to distract, pass the time, or simply unwind. Now that the fall semester has wrapped now’s the perfect time for some new shows. Think of this as your guide to your next binge-watching session.

In this Action Spy Thriller, Jack Ryan (played by John Krasinki), based on the character of Tom Clancy, follows a C.I.A. analyst.

The bank transfers turn out to be carried by Islamic extremists. The second season takes a different turn and sees Jack in Venezuela’s corrupt political war, which involves nuclear weapons. This show is action-packed and guaranteed to have you hooked. Jack Ryan takes you to various countries around the world without leaving the comfort of your home. Both seasons are currently on Amazon Prime for streaming. Amazon announced in April 2019; the show renewal for season 3, which is on the way.

A kidnapping gone wrong has Mason searching and exposing a damaged city while uncovering the truth of a horrific crime. Matthew Rhys plays Perry Mason and features fellow cast members Tatiana Maslany, John Lithgow, Chris Chalk, Shea Whigham, and Juliet Rylance. The first episode of the first season is available for free on HBO Max along with all of season 1. (HBO subscription required).

This hilarious reality show follows the life of southern Multimillionaire real estate mogul and entrepreneur Todd Chrisley and his family living an over-the-top lifestyle. Still, like any other family, there are problems and, of course, drama. Todd treats life like he does business with no B.S. and doesn’t care who he gets upset with. Todd is known for micromanaging his family and the money they spend; nothing is out of order in the Chrisley household, at least to Todd’s belief. Unlike other reality shows, this one feels more organic as you see everything the family is going through; Simultaneously, it is a lot more positive., there is always enough drama to leave you satisfied because what is reality T.V. without the drama? You can stream all previous episodes of Christley Knows Best on the N.B.C. Universal streaming service Peacock and catch new episodes on U.S.A. Network.

Defending Jacob [Psychological Thriller] (Apple TV+)

Apple TV+ launched a year ago, and I was skeptical because I thought to myself, what could Apple bring to the entertainment industry? They are known for electronics, after all. Well, they delivered and brought some solid entertainment. Defending Jacob is one of those shows that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. This miniseries is about the barber family, whose lives are interrupted when their son is accused of murdering a classmate. The miniseries stars Chris Evans, Michelle Dockery, and Jaeden Martell. Based on the book from William Landay’s novel “Defending Jacob.” You can stream* the entire miniseries on AppleTV+ on your all apple products and on the Apple TV+ app through select smart T.V.s. Free trial new subscribers available. *Subscription to Apple TV+ Required

MTV Unplugged (Music/Special) [MTV]

While I have listed some great T.V. shows to check out and still have a few more to tell you, I wanted to mention MTV Unplugged. While this is more of a music special that does not have a set number of episodes released every week throughout the year, this is one of those shows that comes out as artists decide to open up to their fans. One thing that has helped me personally through quarantine is music. We cannot attend concerts in persona and probably won’t be able to for the next little while, but thankful for the recorded shows and Instagram lives that some artists are hosting, but most of all, I am grateful for MTV Unplugged. For those who don’t know, MTV Unplugged is a music series that showcases artists and artists on the rise in the music industry performing acoustic versions of their songs. Some of my favorite episodes include Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Shawn Mendes, Alicia Keys, and Rod Stewart. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MTV organized an MTV Unplugged at Home special consisting of 15 episodes. You can watch these episodes on the MTV app for iPhone and Android and MTV.com.
