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.

    Awesome! The Best L&O EVER!

    You Must Must watch Law and order:SVU!!! It is without ANY doubt the byound best show out there! Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni make it all so intense!! Mariska, Olivia Benson, is a rape baby and all cases but her in a vary emotional stanse with the shows. Mariska, Being a sex crimes phyciatrist herself, relates with the victumes... Chris ralates more to the Child Molesting cases because of his own kids... Not meaning it that way, He has kids and thinks 'What if this happened to them' and flips out! Many times throwing people, Jumping, and tons of yelling!! This Drama is full of action... And it is quite educating on how the court works and all those police and judge phrasaes mean! HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

    Intense, Fascinating, and Satisfying.

    Law and Order: SVU is without a doubt, the best drama on television. The cases are intense and often take radical turns in interesting and daring new directions. The characters are well developed and interesting, the show keeps on the business side, but the love the detective have for each other is apparent and endearing. If you're looking for an intense show that will keep you engaged and guessing, SVU is it.
