For anyone who has seen the last 4 seasons of Law and Order: SVU, know what I mean when I say this is the last classic season of the show.
From season 6 and on, the show has dealt with, divorces, the "will they or won't they" quiestion of the Benson/Stabler romance, choosing partners over civilians, FBI agent and possible love interest of Benson, and more recently, baby drama. They'll be little of that in the season 4 box set of SVU. This season follows the protocol of seasons 1-3, which is very little character growth and little to no romantic moments between any of the characters, save episode 12, Risk, in which the characters go undercover and there is a few brief romantic moments between Benson/Stabler.
Now please, do not get me wrong, while this season contains the few elements of the recent episodes, this is still a wonderful season, filled with character driven plots, very memorable episodes, as well as little known gems. Such as the one I mentioned above "Risk" One of the more famous SVU episodes in which the team deals with a drug dealer, and has every member go undercover. Another memorable episode is "Futility" (Or the episode commonly known among fans as 'the one where Fred Savage hits Olivia') And another wonderful episode, and my first ever episode ever in the history of this show, is "Damaged" where a 16 year old sociopath and her sister are involved in a shootout, but the circumstances aren't as clear cut as it may seem.
All in all this is a wonderful season, one which I encourage any SVU fan to buy, and all family and friends of an SVU fanatic to buy seeing how this box set goes on sale December 4th, just in time for the Holidays.

This is a great series and has remained so. This is an offshoot of the original Law and Order series. This series focuses on sexual crimes, normally not dealt with on television. The main crimes are rape, child molestation, and everything in between. I am very glad the Law and Order series decided to tackle this once taboo topic and I believe this series has helped open the discussion of rape and sexual abuse which is one of the reasons why I love this series so much.

The acting is great, the plots are amazing and draw in you from the first "dum dum". Since it deals with sensitive subject matter, the episodes may not be appropriate for all viewers. There is high replayability with these episodes which is why it is worth the purchase. If you enjoy crime dramas, especially crime dramas that help open debate and deal with taboo topics, then this is the show for you. I guarentee you will enjoy it.

This is one of the great seasons of SVU! Remember the good old times before it all went downhill? When the writing was still focused and superb, the drama was in the cases, nobody's wardrobe made you laugh, and smart-is-sexy Alex Cabot was the ADA? These DVDs bring them back - at their best. Featuring such much-beloved episodes as "Fallacy," this DVD-box is a must for any SVU fan, and anyone wanting to meet the coolest member of the "law and order"-family, before it lost its heart and mind.

I love Law and Order: SVU and have been a fan for many years. The Special Victims Unit deals with crimes of rape, incest, and child abuse to name a few, topics that were often ignored on TV before this show came out and opened the forum for discussion on it. I also think it's empowering that the detectives in any rape case encourage the victims to come forward and get help because so many victims choose not to for various reasons. Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni (Benson and Stabler) bring such emotion to their characters and they are both phenomenal actors and have such chemistry together that you love them as a team. Even though this show has been on for many years, they still manage to bring new topics and ideas to the episodes. The show is so well written and riveting and you are hooked from the "dunk dunk" sound in the first segment. Every episode is amazing!

Some notable episodes are "Damaged" about a 5 year old girl who is fatally injured in a robbery but tests positive for STDs and the detectives turn their attention to the sister's boyfriend and "Deception" about a young child's family portrait drawing that leads to some questions about the mother's inappropriate relationship with her stepson after the father is murdered. You will not be disappointed!

I love all the Law & Order shows and am impressed that they all continue to get better, with tighter writing, incredible acting and excellent story lines. SVU is my particular favorite as the cast is incredible, believable and have wonderful chemistry. I live in Alaska where I do not get TV so I'm always thrilled when a new one is released. Don't be so long with the next season!

Another great season of SVU! This season grabs you from the first show. I've watched them over and over. I wish they had released them in order though. In the previous release the DA gets put in witness protection and a new DA, a.k.a. Dian Neal, is introduced. This season happens before this event. If your a fan like me and can watch them over and over it's worth the money.
