And by greater extension, to Logan's actor, Chris Noth. After the ''very'' bad blood between the actor and Creator/DickWolf that resulted in the former's firing, he then created a character that was like Logan ([[CowboyCop renegade cop]] with a [[HairTriggerTemper hair-trigger temper]] who was RaisedCatholic, etc.), but whose traits were taken UpTheEleven as a [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] version of him who was younger, more handsome, had more questionable, barely legal behavior that blurred the lines, and even looked similar to him (albeit unlike Logan, Stabler is HappilyMarried with children). Hell, the first few seasons of the series, he was even credited as "''Chris'' Meloni" before going on to be credited as "Christopher".

[[WMG: Stabler becomes a VigilanteMan after [[TurnInYourBadge putting in his papers]].]]

After signing off, Stabler becomes [[BloodKnight unable to cope with not brutalising rapists]] so he goes out and begins a one man crusade against sexual offenders who have thus far escaped the law. Eventually, his activities will result in the SVU investigating the death of a rapist which will force Olivia to chose between her loyalty to her job or to her old partner.

It pretty much goes like this ''Series/SesameStreet'' is or has pretty much a [[TheLandBeforeTime Great Valley]] like haven/secured neighborhood for all that remains of New York City's children within the svuniverse and probably was a natural habitat for its [[{{Muppet}} non human residents]] which pretty much explains why most of its residents appear to live in blissful ignorance (at least its children and child like muppets) of the far more lethal and torturous world around them.

Although back in 1999 with the ending of ''Homicide'' and the start of ''SVU'', the show was ostensibly a vehicle/spin-off for [[JohnMunch]], this is no longer the case.
** The increasing flimsiness of his storylines/past (him apparently growing up in a apartment on the East Side instead of in Baltimore, various people on his life have been mysteriously [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome dropped]] and [[RememberTheNewGuy added]], like his brother and his Uncle, respectively, etc.)
** The nasty habit of actors being [[YouLookFamiliar rotated over and over again]], even ''[[ContinuitySnarl established]]'' [[ContinuitySnarl previous characters]]. (Creator/AndreBraugher playing someone ''other'' than [[EnsembleDarkhorse Pembleton]]? How dare they?! Plus, Munch's line of "[[WhamLine You look familiar.]]" to him wasn't necessary.)
** Also, the lack of almost none of the characters from the show by name save for Lewis, who only appeared once and wasn't/isn't nearly as popular as Pembleton.
** The fact that he's no longer on the show makes you wonder why it was even considered in the same universe in the first place. At this point, the show as about as connected to ''Homicide'' as it is to ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''!

necessary and looked as a knock to [[TakeThatAudience any]] ''[[TakeThatAudience HLOTS]]'' [[TakeThatAudience fans]] [[ArmedWithCanon or their writers]].) To say nothing of Stabler, who apparently used to work as a bounty hunter from Miami...
** Also, the lack of almost none of the characters from the previous show are included or are mentioned by name save for his ex, Gwen (who apparently is now mentally ill) and Lewis, who only appeared once and wasn't/isn't nearly as popular as Pembleton.
** The fact that he's no longer on the show after years of being DemotedToExtra makes you wonder why it was even considered in the same universe in the first place. At this point, the show as is about as connected to ''Homicide'' as it is to ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent''!
