Spotlight/Shoutout: Stephanie March and Diane Neal

Stephanie March

Diane Neal

Once again on the s/s cyber stage there is a tie!

If you’ve followed the blog, you’ll know that I love Law and Order: SVU.

And recently, a certain anonymous person introduced me to, a place where I can watch every episode of Law and Order: Special Vicitms Unit ever. But of course, I'm still trying to track down the Russian version of the show

No joke, it’s hard to find online because of rights and legalities and all that jazzy pants stuff.

Speaking of Legalities the s/s is shared between Stephanie March and Daine Neal, both famous for playing the lead female ADA’s on the show.

There has been much debate over the past few years as to which ADA is better….Diane Neal with her Laura Prepon changing hair or Stephanie March and her secret identity in the witness protection program (Her name was Emily (If that’s incorrect shoot me.)). Both of these actors added so much to the show, respect.

Anyway, I watched the pilot of SVU from 1999, and it is still just as good as it is today. It really pushed the envelope with a lot of in-your-face action. This was in a day before shows like the “The Shield” on FX, which blew things out of the water. SVU was there first.

Sadly neither Neal or March were in the pilot.

So Stephanie Marche or Diane Neal?, the two sassy ADA’s on the show really made it interesting. When I’m watching SVU, and I see either one of their names in the credits I just can’t decide which one is better. However, it is widely acclaimed that they are both better than Michaela McManus as ADA Kim Greylek, their supposed replacement…haha.
But in all fairness she hasn’t been given a fair chance?

QATFYG: Do you have a favorite lawyer on TV? Also, anyone know where I can find the Law and Order: SVU Russian version?

PS: The picture I posted of Diane Neal (the one on the bottom) looks so dangerous. She looks like a flasher outside of a Clay Aiken performance of Spamalot!


  1. Yo... da show iz off da hook.

  2. i keep thinking over and over that that window in the second pic totally looks like via san francesco in pisa. yeah i'm easily distracted by details :/

  3. @strt001 hellz yeah!

    @mmorbo It easily could be. After reading your comment, I googled it, but I couldn't find where it was.

    in the meantime, here are some great photos of Diane Neal from fanpix.

  4. at first i taught they were the same person because they look so much alike

  5. totally with you on this one. i cant decide either, but i find myself drifting towards Neal, in general. The fact that she has carried on after SVU to do roles on other shows as popular as NCIS only proves the real extent of her talent. Haven't seen that same kind of dedication in Stephanie March, but in all honesty, I don't know much about her career...but sheesh, add Diane's smoky voice to the mix and Im in love.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
