LAW & ORDER SVU 5/13 EPISODE

I know there's such a thing as artistic license but this defies credulity!

 

So Olivia has an evidence bag from her brother Simon's death which occurred **a year ago** takes out his phone and it magically powers on!

 

How many phones can be unused for a year and then power right back on? !

 

I'd think that with a program that deals so much with evidence that the writers would have been more careful!

 

I frequently notice this stuff and lapses or errors in continuity. Kind of interesting.

@Love my grandkids  Just watched that episode tonight, and I wondered the same as you.

I figured she had charged it, then placed it back in the bag until she could sit down and go through it.

So what was the reason?

Re: LAW & ORDER SVU 5/13 EPISODE

I gave up SVU a few years ago, but with the crossover events to Organized Crime, I thought I'd give it another try.  Nope.  Still melodramatic and outlandish.  How come she and her two detectives get every case in NYC????  AND Simon?  Wasn't he a kook who she didn't want anything to do with? And now the OC is just as ridiculous.  What a disappointment because I still watch the original and most of those episodes are timeless.

@Etoile308 There was absolutely no evidence that she charged it up. Having watched every episode multiple times that would have been shown.

 

The writers goofed!

i don't know why they would waste time showing a phone being charged, but it is good to have different theories!

I just assumed the phone was previously charged by the original detectives on the case.
