Olivia Benson - from raw recruit to captain fantastic - what a journey!
Verified purchase
Special Victims Unit deals with horrendous crimes, child abuse, rape and murder. Not only does this series deal with the difficulties of bringing the perpetrators to justice, it also deals with the terrible mental burden it places on the detectives themselves and how they try to come to terms with the things they have seen.
It’s a rare thing to be able to watch characters gain experience and develope over so many years.
Benson and Stabler have become so familiar to me that when they are the ones under attack I find it quite difficult to watch. Benson being kidnapped by the serial killer/rapist was very disturbing.
Stabler returning in cross over episodes with Law & Order Organised Crime made me want to go back to the beginning and remind myself of why they mean so much to each other. What a fabulous journey they’ve had.

Purchased by mistake! Can I get a refund?
Verified purchase
I didn't mean to purchase this, and I had no idea I did until I saw the money being pulled from my bank account!
I must have accidentally selected it last night while I was watching Criminal Minds. I remember that at some point out of the blue the episode got interrupted and it looked like and episode of Law & Order was starting. I thought it was odd so I closed it and went back to watch Criminal Minds. I didn't realise a purchase went through?
I didn't even see a message asking me for confirmation of my purchase.
Can I please get a refund for this please?

Great product!
Verified purchase
DVD arrived quickly and safely. Any quibbles with the Australian rubrick at the start of the DVD is outweighed by the fact that the episodes are so worth watching. Good quality sound and picture. I have a few of the SVU seasons on DVD now, and the only problem is that some of the DVDs don't have episode guides or identifiers on the Discs, so you have to watch each disc to find the episode you want. Of course, you can write your own episode guide to over come this problem. Over all - no complaints.

I hate giving negative feedback but all the dvds in this set hard finger prints, smudges, sticky stuff on them all on the readable side. Some took 3 cleans to get them off. IF these are checked they should be cleaned for sale

I''ve become addicted to Law & Order SVU, which I never have to any other series. The stories are gritty - sometimes too gritty - but the characterizations are superb and always well acted.This series introduces Diane Neal as ADA Cssy Novak, replacing Stephanie March's ADA Alexandra Cabot (though Cabot returns in later series) and it is interesting to compare their performances.

So far only watched half the season but still think it's one of the best plenty of famous cameos including the odd sports star
Verified purchase
I bought this after being let down by amazon when they they couldn't get the dvd I purchased months earlier. I've been watching SVU for years but missed out on earlier seasons so I wanted to catch up. So far only watched half the season but still think it's one of the best plenty of famous cameos including the odd sports star, I won't spoil it, and more than enough variety in the cases to keep me intrigued.
