On this week’s episode Aviv and Matt view and review season 3 episode 20 – Greed!   The guys come out strong by giving the listeners a peek behind the curtain with some technical difficulties which the guys interpret as a possible sign from god to stop recording the show.  Matt discusses how he accidentally blinded himself with jalapeno residue from his fingers as he rubbed his eyes.  Aviv has an existential crisis where he questions if he is actually alive or not, and lives his best life by not wearing pants as much as possible.  Aviv finds a way to put together a fairly reasonable 60 second recap for an insane SVU episode.  All that and much more!  Aviv and Matt want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving and as a reminder everyone, be safe out there!   Rate and review us on iTunes, tweet at us @SVUPodcast or send us an email specialviewingunit@gmail.com

On this week’s episode Matt and Aviv view and review SVU season 3 episode 19 – Justice.  This episode was recorded long before the allegations against Roy Moore were reported and will not be discussed despite the creepy similarities that exist between the show and reality, sadly.  Aviv starts the episode out by opening mail and paying bills and Matt points out how this show is slowly turning into the podcast version of American Splendor (but not as good or interesting).  Matt talks about his three day weekend staycation, Aviv talks about his pulled pork bbq and saw Warren G. Matt compares the episode to an M. Night Shyamalan movie with all the twists and turns.  He also brings up some women’s fashion advice as it relates to SVU.  All this and more!   Please rate and review us on iTunes, tweet at us @SVUPodcast or send us an email specialviewingunit@gmail.com

On this bonus episode Aviv and Matt do a quick review of the 2008 movie 21 inspired by Aviv's hate watching of the film one random afternoon.  Just as a warning this episode was recorded well ahead of the allegations of sexual harrassment/assualt against Kevin Spacey hence why there is no mention of this in the podcast.

On this weeks episode Matt and Aviv view and review season 3 episode 16 - Popular!  The guys give their thoughts on a whole bunch of stuff that happened while Aviv was out of the country (which now feels like decades ago), including Aviv's thoughts on the Mooch, the departure of spicer and preibus, and give their thoughts on the events of Charlottesville (remember when that happened guys!?)  Aviv also brings up the pro Trump march and the Juggalo march that took place in D.C. The guys dive into the mailbag and read a negative itunes review, and in the sake of fairness the guys read it on the air (Matt then jokingly becomes mildly unhinged as a result).  The guys disagree over how nuts this episode is and discuss how everyone in this weeks episode saying this girl might get a complext is going to result in the girl getting  complex.  All this and much more!   Give us a rate and review on iTunes, tweet at us @SVUPodcast or send us an email specialviewingunit@gmail.com

On this weeks episode Aviv and Matt view and review SVU season 3 episode 15 Execution!  Aviv starts out by eating some dosie doe's like a real jackass.  Matt tries his hand at doing a gravely voice and abandons that pretty quickly.  Matt calls Aviv out for eating cookies, Matt discusses the 1980's version of the Blob with Kevin Dillon.  The guys also discuss the pros and cons of the original Flatliners and the increasing amount of time they want to be dead and how using a heating blanket won't prevent the massive brain damage that dying would cause due to oxygen loss. Aviv and Matt generally agree that this week's episode is a good one and have very few notes compared to other episodes because it is that damn good.  All that and much more!   Rate and review us on iTunes, tweet at us @SVUPodcast, or send us an email specialviewingunit@gmail.com
