Love SVU
Verified purchase
Love it! It is a modern masterpiece. The actors are professional and compassionate without being so squeaky-clean that you are left with a sugary-sweet aftertaste. The characters are flawed, they have weaknesses and they sometimes get it wrong, but that is what makes them so believable.

Every episode is well written and well acted. If you are a fan of Law & Order then I do not need to tell you how good this is; but if you are new to Law & Order and are not easily offended (The SVU - Special Victims Unit - handle sex crimes, thus there are children involved in some of the stories) and you live crime dramas then this will appeal.

Amazing Series!
Verified purchase
I've been watching this series for a few years now, mainly on TV.
However, since moving into my student accomodation, I cannot watch TV anymore, so I decided it was time to actually buy the DVD's. I didn't start with the normal Series 1, i'm not like that! (Haha) I decided instead to buy season 4 & 5.

This season is very good, I was surprised to find that I had only seen a handful of the episodes, and therfore, it was a delight to watch.

Very good series, all of the episodes are well worth a watch, for someone who is interested in crime TV shows, it isn't too fake and is very easily interesting.

For the price, definately worth a buy! You won't be let down!

Special Victims Unit.
Verified purchase
This is an outstanding crime drama series from the great Jerry Bruckheimer. The storylines are compelling and the cast of actors are utterly convincing. The high standard of Law and Order never falters series after series.

Law & Order - Special Victims Unit
Verified purchase
As an avid follower of Law & Order - Special Victims Unit I am absolutely delighted being able to watch the whole series from the very beginning and most certainly would recommend them to people who are into all the intricacies of solving the crimes and "playing detective". I will continue to purchase the series right up to the present.
