Editorial Reviews

In the criminal justice system, sexually based crimes such as rape, torture, pedophilia and child-abuse are dealt with in New York City, by a special unit of the police department known as the Special Victims Unit. Its members include Detective Olivia Benson, herself the child of a rape, Detective Elliot Stabler, a family man trying to protect his family from the horrors of the world. The crimes they deal with are painful, emotional, and scarring. These are their stories.

Note:[From the manufacturer]The artwork on the discs is intentionally ‘smudged', which is the case with all seasons of "Law & Order SVU"

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior writing, Gripping Stories... February 28, 2009
Format:DVD
"Law & Order" stars Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni in 22 Season 8 episodes heavy on drama. The scripts deal with sex crimes, their perpetrators and victims with often frank language and disturbing, emotionally provocative scenarios. Guest stars in the eighth season include Marcia Gay Harden, Tim Daly, Blair Underwood, Bernadette Peters, Kim Delaney, and Kal Penn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show, great characters September 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ever since I first saw this show, it has been my all-time favorite. I've watched the DVDs several times and never tire of them. The plots usually take several different directions and that always keeps my interest. There is no other show that I've seen where I like all the characters so much. Any one of the SVU DVD sets is absolutely worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars SVU has personal touch June 28, 2009
By X. Wang
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Law and Order--SVU 8th season does not vary too much from the path, it is the most successful Law and Order franchise, the same chilling sex crimes, the fast pace, the personal touch that other Law and Order series sorely lack. You always feel a lot of pain watching the show, since the stories are sickening at all times. The two main detectives Stabler and Benson grab most of the screen time, they are compelling characters,the other detectives are featured on certain shows. Stories are still ripped from the headlines, and resonate well with the viewers. Emotion sometimes outweigh reason on SVU, but that is what SVU is all about. If you are a "Law and Order" Series fan, you might want to grab it. If you are looking for depth, I suggest shows like "Wire"(all five seasons) and "Oz".

5.0 out of 5 stars Law & Order: SVU season 8 July 8, 2009
Format:DVD
Season 8 of Law & Order SVU is a great addition to any crime drama junkies' collection. The action and drama of the episodes combined with the chemistry of the detectives of the special victims unit make for great entertainment! This season includes interesting twists on crimes, special guest stars, legal maneuvering, and forensic work, both technical and biological. I'm eagerly awaiting the release of newly televised episodes onto DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars justice February 22, 2009
Format:DVD
this season is a lot about family and how important it is... this season gets more in touch with the characters and tries to introduce a few new ones... some will stay others will go. But for some young kids there is quite a few episodes that they need to see... everyone knows that drunk drivers are out there and that teenagers drink but hardly anyone shows any new footage... and one of the episodes really puts all that into perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!! April 18, 2009
Format:DVD
I was a little dissapointed with the last few episodes from the 7th year and thought maybe the show was starting to go downhill...but when I got the 8th year I learned that that was NOT true!! Im only on the 3rd disk but the 8th year episodes are kicking some serious @$$!!!!!
TOTALLY WORTH WATCHING!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Law and Order SVU April 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've gotten several sets of Law and Order SVU DVD's where the labels were worn off for the most part. This set was no exception. I'm getting tired of this. The quality of the DVD itself as far as how it plays is fine but who wants a gross label on something you pay good money for.
