    5.0 out of 5 stars Law & Order: SVU - Year 2 - Now it gets great! August 22, 2005
    By Cam T.
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    It's about bloody time that this season came onto DVD! Why they released season 5 before the others is quite beyond me, but as long as the other seasons get released quickly, and allow me to complete my collection, I won't complain. One of the things that really gets me about this series isn't just the hard-hitting cases that this show tackles, but also the characters and the acting.

    The season opened with Stabler's daughter witnessing a gory crime scene, and some great father/daughter scenes resulted from this episode, depicting Stabler as a caring family man, sometimes made too paranoid by his job. Another episode that I found touching was 'Legacy', where a case of Shaken Baby Syndrome hits really close to home for Munch, played by Richard Belzer, who was originally on the series "Homicide: Life on the Street." Personally, I wish that the series focused more on Munch than it currently does. We learned a good deal about him in "Homicide", but since then, character development on this amazingly unique character has ground to a virtual halt, except for learning that his father killed himself, and young Munch considered himself responsible (see Season 5).

    Season 2 also introduced the characters of Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola, played by Ice-T, and Assistant District Attorney Alex Cabot, played by Stephanie March. Although not a series regular, Dr. George Huang also appeared several times in the second season, brilliantly acted by B.D. Wong. This DVD set is well worth owning!

    At any rate, Law & Order SVU has been, and continues to be one of the best TV series on the air in this age of cheezy, trashy reality shows which are in no way realistic. Who wants to see a bunch of idiots dress up like Gilligan and go through with a set of ridiculous stunts? If this is where the entertainment world is headed, I'll buy the DVD sets instead and watch those. On the upside of that? No commercials! :-)

    4.0 out of 5 stars ...This Excellent Television Show. October 21, 2005
    The Law & Order franchise is second only to the Simpsons to be the longest running television show. Through its success, the police drama has spawned three similar productions that crossover into different realms of the criminal world and guardians of the law. One of the descendants from the original series is Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, also known as SVU, which deals sensitive crimes of sexual nature. Each episode follows the complete circle of the crime. From the crime to the legal consequence portrayed through the eyes of the prosecutors. However, the focus of the series seems to rest on the investigators in the SVU and their investigative work, which reveals gruesome crimes such as rape and incest.

    The opening of the second season brings an episode, Wrong is Right, that possess all the intrigues necessary to continue to fascinate the audience, as it did during its initial season. It simply continues where season one left off, as the repercussions of a psychological evaluation where two of the main characters shared their thoughts and actions. Detective Stabler's (Christopher Meloni) work begins to drastically affect his personal life, as his daughter witnesses a gruesome crime. Meanwhile, Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Detective Munch (Richard Belzer) continue to work with dreadful crimes while Captain Cragen (Dann Florek) helps his squad whenever needed. During this initial and difficult episode of SVU, Detective Tutuola (Ice-T) arrives after having been transferred from the narcotics department.

    The first episode helps set up the rest of the season, which ends with the season finale where a serial killer is on the loose.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great show October 7, 2005
    I love the show, and was very pleased to finally be able to see Season 2. Unfortunately, the second disc in the set was defective (same thing for the replacement Amazon sent me). Hopefully Universal will release a set with each disc in proper working order. (No dust or scratches on disc 2 - it just wouldn't play, no matter what DVD player it was in.)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show! February 6, 2007
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    This series begins where the first left off. While I wasn't thrilled with the way they ended the first season, I went into the second season expecting what would happen. The shows continue with the same intensity and - at times - heart-breaking stories. I admire the producers for having the courage to take on such difficult subject manner, and I have to admit that I believe it's the best show on television. The actors handle their rolls with great skills - it's almost as though they are real officers. Well done!

    4.0 out of 5 stars This is where the show really took off November 17, 2005
    While the first season of Law & Order SVU had its moments, it pales in comparison to the rest of the series' run. I too don't understand why Universal released Season 5 after Season 1, but when I discovered that Season 2 was finally out, I scooped it right up because that's the point where the show went from good to great.

    What really made the show better was the addition of three actors: Stephanie March as ADA Alexandra Cabot, Ice-T as Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola, and B.D. Wong as psychiatrist Dr. George Huang (even though he wasn't too likable initially). I knocked a star off my rating because I didn't care for the episodes "Asunder" or "Abuse", but overall, everything is impressive. This show is so successful that it even surpassed the original Law & Order in popularity. What does that tell you? While you're waiting for your copy of this to come in the mail, catch new episodes of SVU on NBC or reruns on USA.
