I love many things about Law & Order, but one of my favorite things is the recurring website BeFriends.com, which is obviously the L&O-verse equivalent of MySpace. BeFriends shows up pretty much anytime there's a sordid, seedy, web-based story to be told. In last week's episode, a woman killed her daughter and then used her BeFriends profile to dupe men into falling in love with her and sending her scads of money.

BeFriends, of course, is not to be confused with Another Youniverse, L&O's version of Second Life, which popped up on a recent SVU.

Here's what I think: L&O should get with the program and, like other shows (including "Family Guy" and "How I Met Your Mother") actually buy these domain names and do something with them. I'm on MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter... why not BeFriends?

I liked when Gilmore Girls had Lorelai leave a voicemail for Luke (I think) with her phone number. It was an actual phone number that was set up so when viewers called, they could hear info or donate (?) to a children's hospital or something. Clearly, I'm forgetting most of the relevant details, but it was cool and clever, and that was my main point.

Brilliant. Dick Wolf should hire you.

The show that does this best (IMHO) is How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM). They have Barney Blogging a video of Robin from her days as a Canadian Pop Star and let's not forget www.lilyandmarshallselltheirstuff.com.
