I have to confess right at the start, that i am a big fan of TV drama, in particular from the USA front of Bruckheimer (most Hallmark drama) and Dick Wolf, the creator of the Law and Order franchise.

I treated myself to this season as a Christmas present (I was given an Amazon voucher so had to learn how to use the site to spend it!) in addition to the second season of Law and Order: Criminal Intent (another part of the franchise dealing with high profile and corporate crime and another highly recommended buy!) already owing the first three seasons of Law and Order and the first season of both SVU and CI.

The season picks up where the last left off on the cliffhanger that saw broth Stadler and Jeffries' jobs under thread from the psych review that took place within the SVU previously. This situation is resolved although i shan't say how so as not to spoil anything, but this storyline does pave the way for the introduction of the character played by Ice-T who in my opinion is brilliant, working well and integrating with the now established cast. My one problem (not even a problem)found with this season is (and UK fans may get this more than anyone else)that i couldn't keep a straight face for one episode due to the man in the Orange adverts playing an attorney for one of the characters... but that is no fault of the series.

Also appearing in this season is Khandi Alexander (later to appear in the CSI franchise as an M.E) playing a detective who is raped whilst on duty, in a particularly good episode.

If you have seen the first season of SVU then this is certainly as good, if not better, as the establishement of the cast makes for tighter acting and better on screen rapport, and if you haven't then whilst you are missing out it isn't imperative that you have to have seen it to enjoy this season, and you will probably want to see the first season anyhow!

Now i'm just waiting for season three to appear so i can get on with it!

Brilliant series

Started watching SVU by accident on the Universal Channel, and was addicted by the end of the second episode. I decided to start watching from the very beginning, so I'm now 1 season down, 18 to go......... Just love the characters, the moral complexities of the cases, the intelligent script writing - even the older episodes have stood the test of time well and don't appear dated.

Another great season of Law & Order SVU. Good value for money, excellent storylines although always on very difficult subject matter. Definitely recommend.

Best of the Law & Order series
Verified purchase
Great stuff, and great to watch these episodes without an advert every two minutes. Their strength is the quality of the writing. Writers seldom get the recognition they deserve. Compare the UK spin-off series, which is so dire it reaches my embarrassment threshold. It takes particularly bad writing to destroy the brilliant Law & Order format but the UK writers manage to do so. Stick with the Americans.
