From Wikipedia

“It was announced on June 27, 2011 that Giddish would join the cast of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for its thirteenth season along with Cold Case’s Danny Pino coinciding with Christopher Meloni’s departure from the series.[7] Giddish told TV Guide during summer filming; “Everybody on the set is really excited and energized. They’ve lost a family member with Chris Meloni leaving, but they’ve been very accepting of us. Amanda is thrilled to be here working with these people, and so am I.”[8]

Giddish made her debut as Detective Amanda Rollins in the 13th-season premiere, “Scorched Earth”, in which the character first works alongside Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). In an interview with TV Guide, Giddish said about her character, “My character is in complete awe of Olivia, Amanda’s really eager to get in there because she knows her stuff and really eager to learn. She has come from Atlanta and there was a ceiling there, so she’s come up to New York.”

From first appearance at least, Kelli Giddish looks like she would be one of the last people playing a hard-nosed ( to use a term from the 1950s ) big city police detective who is dedicated to her job as a police detective and always wants to get the bad guy or girl and protect the innocent. Especially people who prey on the innocent. Law & Order SVU, is a drama about NYPD detectives who handle sexual assault cases. Everything from child abuse rape and everything in between or even worst than those cases. So this NYPD unit deals with rapists, as well as people who sexually abuse innocent people, as well as murder them. They deal with some of the worst criminals you can possibly imagine, as well as some people who are mentally unhealthy, who commit horrible crimes.

I say Kelli Giddish and the character that she plays ( NYPD Detective Amanda Rollins ) because physically she comes off as so adorable and sweet and simply as someone who is not tough enough to deal with these cases. On the surface at least, Kelli Giddish looks like someone who would be better suited playing a heiress, or someone who works for a fashion magazine, model, perhaps one of those people who are simply famous for being famous like a heiress who spends most of their time spending away the trust fund that their rich father gave them, as well as getting into trouble. But that just goes to show you how terrific an actress that Kelli Giddish is who is someone who has such an adorable the American sweetheart next door demeanor and yet she plays a very tough NYC cop, who not only takes on the bad guys and girls, but who also kicks a lot of ass on the show.

Law & Order SVU, is a modern cop show about detectives who do a lot of leg work, as well as undercover work and are always on the move and not just investigating bad people, but taking them down. And taking down people to arrest them who don’t want to be caught. So you see physical altercations on this show on a regular basis and because of this you see beautiful, sexy women like Kelli and Mariska Hargitay ( who plays Detective Lieutenant Olivia Benson ) on the show looking beautiful and very sexy, dressing pretty casually. A lot of skin-tight jeans, boots, tight tops. A lot of times on the show Kelli looks like a Western cowgirl cop wearing a Western jacket with her skin-tight jeans and cowgirl boots. Instead of wearing a suit jacket or leather jacket that would be more common with big city cops in America.

The modern TV cop show now has a lot of women playing the top cops on the show and doing a lot of the dangerous work as detectives, sergeants, or lieutenants. Whether it’s Elisabeth Shue and Jorga Fox on CSI Las Vegas, Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish on Law & Order SVU. Which is why you not only see very attractive women on shows like this today, when 20 years ago they would be working in offices and even managing companies, but not doing physical dangerous work like working as vice detectives that they do today and doing other law enforcement jobs. Kelli Giddish, is the perfect example of what the modern TV cop looks like today. Beautiful, sexy, and even adorable on the outside at least, but very tough physically and personally and not someone you want to mess with.

Sophia Bush: Detective Erin Lindsay on Chicago P.D.

To be completely honest with you, I only got into Chicago P.D. the last few years at all because I saw a few reruns and noticed that Sophia Bush whose name I never even heard of before, but then got to thinking that was very familiar and then I looked up the show and her online because she looked like one of the actresses from the teen soap opera One Tree Hill from ten years earlier. A show I watched on Soap Net about six years ago and she played one of the main characters on that show. But that she was much better looking now especially sexier while still remming just as adorable as she was back 2004-05, 06, etc.

And like One Tree Hill which was sort of like for Millennial’s which I’m not what Beverly Hills 90210 ( the original ) was for my Generation X. The main if not first soap opera about that generation and it wasn’t as good as Beverly Hills and not as successful, but still a good show about that generation and I would argue very accurate as well, but how One Tree Hill is with Beverly Hills Chicago P.D. is not as good as Law & Order especially the original Law & Order from the 1990s or even Law & Order SYU. Not that Chicago isn’t a good show or even a great show, but that it’s not as good as the show that probably inspired it.

Teen soap operas regardless of the generation that they were about became popular in the 1990s. Cop shows became popular in the 1990s as well because of shows like Law & Order and the CSI Las Vegas in the 2000s. To the point that thanks to NBC with their Law & Order franchise and CBS with their CSI franchise, cop and law enforcement shows are perhaps the most popular shows on network TV right now, because of all of these great cop shows and the great casts and characters that they put together. Chicago P.D., which is a police detective show where a lot of the characters are either detectives or sergeants, but based of course in Chicago unlike Law & Order in New York.

One thing that I like about the Detective Erin Lindsay character on Chicago P.D. ( played by Sophia Bush ) if that she fits the old cliches don’t let appearances fool you, or don’t judge a book by it’s cover, or I would add don’t let the baby face fool, because she’a lot tougher than she looks. She plays this beautiful, but baby face as cute as a little girl Chicago P.D. detective and yet she handles herself with the best of them and kicks as about as well as any guy on that show. The last part might be going pretty far, because you have big strong men who are also detectives on that show, but similar to the Elisabeth Shue character on CSI Las Vegas, she’s mote than capable of handling herself and even pressing the issue when she’s interrogating witnesses and suspects and making arrests.

The modern cop action/drama show has a lot of attractive, sexy women on it who kick ass on the show and do that wearing very tight, sexy outfits. Sophia’s main outfit on that show are tight t-shirts, skin-tight jeans, and heeled boots with a beautiful body as well. She plays a vice detective so of course she’s going to very casually dressed, but that’s what people want to see with their cop shows today which are strong, tough, but very sexy women and Sophia Bush was one of the best at playing that strong, tough, sexy women on that show.

There has been a trend in Hollywood going back 10-15 years and perhaps because of the success of CSI Las Vegas and Law & Order SVU of not just crime fighting shows or cop shows, but shows like that which are very sexy and are the cast is very sexy. Very attractive with a lot of beautiful sexy women on it playing the roles of lead detectives and doing a lot of the hard dangerous work on the cases.

And when you look at their detective units where these people work at the office, there’s no such thing as Casual Friday, but instead they have Casual Everyday. Where the dressiest outfit for women there would be a pantsuit, but with boots instead of dress or business shoes. You’ll still see male detectives, sergeants, and lieutenants wearing business suits, but not so much with the women on these shows.

A common outfit for female detectives especially when they’re on the road and either questioning witnesses, suspects, or catching suspects will be a t-shirt sometimes long sleeve, but a lot of times short sleeve, with skin-tight denim jeans, maybe kaki jeans or cargo pants, with boots. Looking beautiful, sexy, and kicking ass as cops. Shows like CSI with Marg Helgenberger, Elisabeth Shue. Law & Order SVU with Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish. True Justice with Meghan Ory and Sarah Lind. Saving Grace with Holly Hunter from ten years ago. The Mentalist with Robin Tunney and Amanda Righetti. Chicago PD with Sophia Bush and many other shows like that from this era.

A big part of this obviously has to do with style with boots and jeans being so popular now with women, along with staying in shape with women wanting to show their bodies off in a stylish professional way, but also because this look is so versatile and practical and women can wear boots and jeans to the office without looking too casual now. And because they’re playing not just cops, but detectives who are in a lot of dangerous situations where they have to not only catch suspects, but catch people who don’t want to get caught and have to physically confront suspects.

Beautiful both men and women in America like seeing women kick ass on TV and do it in a sexy way. The common female TV cop now is beautiful, sexy, and fairly young. Who is more than capable of defending herself who wears a lot of tight outfits which is what people want to see from their TV cops now both men and women. Gone are the days where TV cops were almost always guys and generally middle age guys who are always wearing business suits. Now the common TV detective both male and female are younger, very attractive, well-built, and sexy, because that is what the viewers want to see.

To say that NBC’s Law & Order SVU is ahead of it’s time, would be like saying that it gets hot in Texas especially in the summer or it rains in Seattle, well at any point during the year or it snows in Minnesota in January and hopefully you get the idea by now. ( God help if you don’t ) They were talking about issues back in 1999-2000 ( the first season of SVU ) 17-18 years before the so-called Me Too movement emerged in 2017. They were dealing cases as a detective squad about women being raped and sexually abused in other ways. As well as little girls and boys who are sexually abused by their parents and other adults in their lives.

The original Law & Order which I still get to watch every week ( thanks to Sundance and TNT ) is still favorite now just show from this franchise, but one of my favorite shows ever, especially from the 1990s and 2000s, but SVU is right up there as one of the best cop dramas on TV. Perhaps the best cop drama on TV right now, but I’m guessing fans of CSI Las Vegas would probably dispute that. Maybe they can get together on TV ( fans of both shows ) and debate on live national TV. I’m sure Bravo would be happy to broadcast that and it would be ultimate and perhaps even real reality TV show.

But on a less substantive note but still important the Olivia Benson character ( played by Mariska Hargitay ) is one of the first sexy female police detectives on TV. There’ve been beautiful, sexy, younger female law enforcement officers on TV before. Angie Dickinson was the original with Police Woman from the 1970s, Heather Thomas from The Fall Guy in the 1980s, Kelly Hu from Nash Bridges from the late 1990s and perhaps there are more.

But Mariska is the first from a trend that started in the mid 2000s or so where you would have beautiful, sexy women playing tough cops who kick ass on a regular basis and even kick male ass. They’re no longer playing secretary’s, receptionists or desk sergeants that just take calls and pass on information to the real detectives and their superiors, but working cases and getting into conflict and having to physically take on strong male suspects who could severely hurt them if not kill them if the female officer is not up to the task.

Mariska, is the first female TV law enforcement officer to where tight jeans and boots on the show on a regular basis while she’s working and not at home or having a rare day off, but working her cases in beautiful black leather jacket, black denims, and boots. She was doing that back in 2007-08 if not earlier and now every cop show has at least one if not multiple female lead officers who are beautiful, sexy, physically able to take care of themselves who work their cases in boots and jeans on a regular basis. Just watch CSI Las Vegas with Elisabeth Shue, or watch Criminal Minds with the attractive detectives there, Chicago PD with Sophia Bush, NCIS LA with Daniela Ruah and I could go on.

Mariska Hargiatay ( who plays now Detective Lieutenant Olivia Benson ) is not the first beautiful, sexy, sharp, witty, great cop on TV, she’s just the best cop with those qualities and that includes Angie Dickinson who I love as well and they’re now in their 20th season with apparently no plans to ever wind the show down and plan for a final season and not just because of how popular the show is and that it’s lead to over great cop shows like Chicago PD, but also because of how great the show is. How great the cast, storylines and everything else that makes cop shows great.

Gotta respect a guy who loves his wife so much and is so proud of her, that he would not just film her in public, but then put that footage out on public especially on a platform like YouTube, where a lot of other people would get to see her. And see how sexy she is and on the move like this. I guess you also have to respect or admire a woman, that has so much faith and trust in her husband, that she would be willing to show off not just for him, but for a lot of other people especially men to see her like this.

If you’re familiar with the adult entertainment websites Clips 4 Sale and DevilButts, you know about the female models there who are always wearing the same denim jeans. Always from the same brand that being Lee Jeans. And they’re almost always wearing ankle boots with those jeans. And all are very curvy with tight curves wearing short tight tops. They sort of look like country girls with their tight t-shirts or tank top, skin-tight jeans and boots, but these ladies are always wearing ankle boots. The woman in this video is wearing high boots with her Lee Jeans and a leather jacket, so she looks a little different from those other models.

If you’re familiar with this Seinfeld episode, you know that Teri Hatcher’s plays Jerry’s new girlfriend that he met at their health club. And one of the first things that he notices about her is of course is her how should I say, nice rack. And he tells his friends about her and they can’t believe that her breasts are real and feel the need to see them for themselves. And Elaine ( played by Julia Dreyfus ) agrees to be Jerry’s spy and she sort of follows Jerry’s girlfriend around their health club and into the sauna to see if her breasts are actually real or not.

What you see in this video is that it finally occurs to Sidra ( played by Teri Hatcher ) that Jerry not only doesn’t know if her breasts are real or not, but that he had a spy follow her around to see for herself if Sidra’s breast were real or not and that is why she walks out on him in his apartment. This was even before Teri Hatcher got the Lois Lane character on the ABC Clark Kent show about Superman. So she wasn’t a star yet in Hollywood or even a known name yet, but this is episode and break that made Teri Hatcher a star and has kept her working in Hollywood for the last 25 years.

At risk of sounding like an old man, I don’t get the women smoking in jeans fad. I get the tight jeans and skinny jeans part, but what is so sexy or awesome or hot or whatever about seeing a woman smoking regardless of what she is wearing? Especially since smoking “is like so not awesome anymore”. ( To use a valley phrase ) With so many Americans understanding the dangers of tobacco and the addiction part and not wanting to deal with the health affects of tobacco consumption later on in life.

Now as far as the woman in the video, again not interested in the smoking part. But a very attractive sexy woman in skinny denim jeans in boots. A classic look that is not going away anytime soon, not with women like this and with healthier and curvy women around and still coming up.

In the late 1970s there was a boom for dark wash designer denim jeans thats been with us ever since.

It’s by far my favorite tend with women’s fashion, because we go from an era even in the mid and late 1970s where women didn’t look like they were out West in the late 1800s or early 1990s wearing very long dresses and having to hold parts of their dresses when they walked, because they were worried about walking on their dresses and even tripping, but an era where women wore very baggy pants and were not expected to show off their legs at least with pants. And were bellbottoms and what were called in 1974-75 and even a little later and earlier flares. They were sort of like jeans, but not tight at all.

And then we end up in an era starting in 1978 or so with all these magazine covers, as well as movies and TV sitcoms and other TV programming where women are not only wearing jeans, but denim jeans, designer denim jeans, skin-tight designer jeans, where the jeans would go down only to the woman’s ankle so and would be real tight in the legs and hip area of the woman’s body. Where American women are now wearing jeans the way American men were wearing them on TV and in the movies since the 1950s.

Designer jeans that are simply designed to show off a woman’s legs and butt, to show off their curves and how beautiful and sexy they were physically. But in a stylish professional way where women could dress down their jeans with t-shirts and boots, or could dress their jeans up with nice jacket, blouse, as well as boots and could wear denim jeans to work or go out to dinner, go shopping and other places, or go to ballgames with their boyfriends or the movies in their designer jeans. And not look like they’re being over sexual or pornographic and have to worry about what more culturally conservative people thought about their tight pants and boots.

American women become liberated economically in the mid and late 1960s with the freedom culturally to not just go to college and get a degree, but then using that degree to get themselves a good job and enter the outside workforce and become economically independent from men. To the late 1970s and ever since where now they’re culturally liberated when it comes to fashion. Where it’s not only acceptable for them to be beautiful physically, have a beautiful body physically, but then have the freedom and courage to show the world that they have a beautiful body and are proud of it. Designer jeans from the late 1970s and early 1980s, to skinny jeans of today both denim and leather, as well as boots, are great ways for women to showcase their bodies and show people how put together physically that they are.

We go from an era in the early and mid 1970s, where American women weren’t supposed to show their legs and butts at all, really other than miniskirts and other skirts which is some cases can be more revealing for a woman’s lower body than tight denim, to an era where it was acceptable and in some cases expected for American women to not just wear tight jeans ( both leather and denim, ) but were those pants on a regular basis and in some cases everyday depending on what they did for a living and if they were involved let’s say in the fashion or entertainment business or just out running their errands and doing their everyday business like going shopping or their kids sporting events.

And it’s not just tight but skin-tight jeans especially denim but in some cases leather jeans like in entertainment and the fashion world, because not just popular but mainstream starting in 1978 or so with all sorts of American sitcoms now showing Americans women wearing skin-tight designer jeans on a regular basis and sometimes even every show with multiple women wearing designer jeans on the shows, but this movement in fashion for women just grew and grew. In the 1980s and especially 1990s, America women were seen everywhere in designer jeans and Levi’s in every possible environment on TV. Women were even seen at work in tight jeans like on cop shows, private eye shows, other action/drama shows. Like The Dukes of Hazzard, The Fall Guy and other shows. And this is a trend in women’s fashion that just keeps growing and will probably never go away.

A trend that started in 1978 that just kept going by the late 1990s-early 2000s, the dark wash skin-tight designer denim jeans that women started wearing and loving in the late 1970s, came back into style. Didn’t replace the Levi’s and Guess Jeans from the 1990s, but became an addition. Where you started seeing women in 1997-98 and into the early 2000s, wearing designer jeans that looked like they could be from 1979-80. But were perhaps even tighter and were more low-rise. Studded belts became mainstream on America women in the early 2000s and weren’t before that when only biker women and rocker women would wear studded belts for the most part. And you would see women wearing their studded belts with their low-rise designer jeans on a regular basis and everywhere.

We’re now in a skinny jeans era ( if you can call 8 years and era ) that started in 2005 where women not only wear skin-tight low-rise designer denim jeans, but can wear them in a way that shows off their butt and legs perfectly ( if they have nice legs and a nice butt ) but can do that in a way that doesn’t give away too much. The low-rider ass crack jeans ( as I call them ) that were popular in 2001-02 were replaced by skinny jeans that are still low-rise and skin-tight, but where women can sit down and stand up without showing off skin around their backside. And this is an era for denim jeans for women that will be around forever I believe, as long as sexy women are comfortable in them, like them, and enjoy showing off their legs and butts.

She’s not as good as her father, but most people aren’t, but she can sing. Elvis Presley wasn’t called the king for hell of it. I don’t see him as the King off Rock & Roll and could probably name ten or more rock artists are better, both solo singers and bands. But he had a great voice and some good songs and was a hell of an entertainer. His music was also different from his daughter Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis was a blues rock performer and at times played only rhythm and blues. He was sort of the Eric Clapton but a generation up from Clapton. His daughter Lisa Marie is more of a hard rocker, or even metal, perhaps a Goth performer (according to her outfits) and has a much harder edge to her music. She also has a great voice, but not being headbanger myself and fan of both classic rock R&B, for that alone I would give the edge to her father Elvis Presley when it comes to music. But to each his own and we are free to differ on that. But she’s good in concert and looks great and for that alone is worth checking out.

Laugh About: 10 Insane Late Night Talk Show Appearances

I think the guests that stick out with me from this video, are Paris Hilton. Because she’s only famous, because who her father is and a few failed so-called realty TV shows she’s been on and of course one of perhaps thousands of so-called celebrities that have done time in jail. And if you noticed Dave Letterman, there was nothing else he wanted to talk about with Paris. Why, because she’s not well-known for really anything positive and for any substance. She’s known as a heiress who probably lives off her trust fund from her father and has someone invest and manage that money for her.

The Joaquin Phoenix, is another standout. Joaquin, later apologized to Letterman for his appearance on that show. Hopefully he apologized for not bothering to shave, or getting a haircut, chewing the gum, the sunglasses, perhaps not bathing before coming on. Dave, was expecting to see Joaquin Phoenix and instead what they got was Jim Morrison’s twin brother from 1970. Some zen new aged hipster, who didn’t seem to have a care in the world, or know anything about anything that was going on in his life. Not the way you want to appear on national TV on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Heidi Klum, well because she’s Heidi Klum. Arguably one of the five best looking women to ever come from Germany, or be of ethnic-German descent. I like Steffi Graf and Catherine Bach, but that’s me. That whole setup looked planned to me and Heidi with the sense of humor that she has, probably planned the whole deal herself with Dave and Marty Short, being more than willing helpers with the so-called Heidi wardrobe malfunction. I believe that show was from 2007, just three years after the so-called Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction at that Super Bowl.

Post-Johnny Carson, Dave Letterman to me is the best late night talk show host. And I think I like him the most because of damn straight candor. If he doesn’t have much respect for his guests, or his guests aren’t giving him much to work with and perhaps are acting like they want to be somewhere else, as you saw with Paris Hilton, who perhaps was late for her appointment with her dealer, or Joaquin, who looked like he just woke up from a ten-year coma, which would explain the shades and thick beard, Dave will let you know about it. Without actually telling you how he’s feeling.
