Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
The 2003-4 season of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit finds Detectives Stabler (Chris Meloni), Benson (Mariska Hargitay), Munch (Richard Belzer), and Tutuola (Ice T) in fine form. The SVU reports to Captain Cragen (Dann Florek) and is charged with handling sex-related crimes in New York City, chasing down murderers, rapists, and child molesters in always engaging -- and sometimes disturbing -- cases. As with all of Dick Wolf's Law & Order shows, a strong guest star can lift an episode from good to great, and this season is no different. Stars such as Jacqueline Bisset, George Segal, Gary Cole, Barry Bostwick, Cindy Williams, and many others grace the screen in SVU's fifth season. Beverly D'Angelo and Marlo Thomas have recurring roles this season, and actresses Mare Winningham and Marlee Matlin turn in Emmy-nominated performances in the episodes "Manic" and "Painless." Intelligent scripts and compelling actors keep SVU as fresh as its first season, and several episodes here are true standouts: "Control," the series' 100th episode, has the detectives searching for a subway castrator; an escaped pedophile takes Detective Benson hostage in "Escape" and persuades her to reopen his case; a schizophrenic man kidnaps a little boy he believes is his son in the heartbreaking "Coerced"; and Diane Neal makes her first appearance as ADA Casey Novak in "Serendipity," wherein a doctor uses nefarious methods to hide the results of a paternity test. Among all of the season's great episodes, two in particular are outstanding: "Loss" -- an episode sure to surprise in its last moments -- deals with the departure of ADA Alex Cabot (Stephanie March) following death threats from a Colombian drug cartel, and the wonderful "Families" guest-stars Jane Seymour as the matriarch to a powerful family that has a disturbing secret.
