Does this bug anyone else?

I absolutely HATE when a TV series uses the same actor or actress for more than one role.

Example: In season 1 of SVU, Diane Neil plays a woman who kills her friend...
Then in season 5 or 6 of SVU, Diane Neil takes over the roll of ADA...

This stuff drives me nuts! How do we keep up with a story line from season to season when they confuse us by reusing actors? AGH!

Sorry, rant... But I hate when the do this!
