It's about time an important video game subject hit mainstream television.
NBC's "Law & Order: SVU" will tackle gaming harassment in an upcoming episode entitled, "Intimidation Game," which will air on February 11.
As revealed on NBC's media website , the episode features a female game developer named Raina Punjabi (played by Mouzam Makkar) and after releasing her first game, she receives death threats from a "male-dominated gaming community." Then, a female employee working for Punjabi is assaulted at a gamer convention, so things get scary.
The episode stars series veteran Mariska Hargitay as Sgt. Olivia Benson, as well as guest stars Peter Mark Kendall, Susannah Flood and Griffin Matthews. I get the feeling the show will try to portray all male gamers as repressed, potentially dangerous losers who can't behave around females, but whatever.
