Editorial Reviews

Primetime Emmy® Award nominee Chris Meloni is Detective Elliot Stabler, and he stars with Mariska Hargitay as Detective Olivia Benson – the role that earned her five Primetime Emmy® Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. The 22 powerful episodes in this five-disc set follow the dedicated officers as they work with New York City’s most heinous criminals, including abusive foster parents, neglectful doctors, vicious smugglers and sadistic kidnappers. Compelling guest stars include Primetime Emmy® Award winner Carol Burnett and Hilary Duff. The recipient of 18 Primetime Emmy® Awards, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is the gripping series that has critics proclaiming, “The acting is to be expected and congratulated” (Nina Gooden, Firefox News).

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit - The Tenth Year coud've been a lot stronger if that chick from One Tree Hill was never cast as the new District Attorney, the writers came to their senses and got rid of her halfway through the season. Stephanie March returned as Alexandra Cabot, glad to see her back - she is such a natural! Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni continue to impress me, two of the best actors on t.v. Some of the episodes were over-the-top especially that illegal tiger meat episode, what was that?! This show has become kind of campy the last couple of seasons, that can start to annoy loyal fans who have been with the show since the beginning. Good season but ditch the lame jokes.

What can I say. This show is still good to watch after ten seasons. It is still one of the best shows on TV today and will continue to watch it. This is a good season for those fans of SVU. Loved the last episode. Go get this dvd if you are a fan, you won't be disappointed.

With well-defined characters, many whom I feel I actually know, the excitement is more gripping as I follow them through the perils of tracking, chasing, apprehending and prosecuting the perpetrators of these "especially heinous crimes".
The season opener was one to 'take your breath away' with suspense. DON'T MISS IT!!

There's a reason Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has been around for ten seasons. If you haven't watched any of the other seasons before starting this one though, I would suggest you go start at the beginning. Sure you could probably watch a few of these with no problem, but the connection with the characters just wouldn't be there.

Law & Order SVU explores the cases that are the hardest to work. Child abuse, rape, elder abuse and other rough topics require a special sort of detective, which is where the SVU division comes in. Each of the episodes is a stand alone on its own (there are very few that are continuing story-lines) but the characters have some story arcs that go through the seasons (like Stabler's family life). The episodes in this season were good, SVU gets better or stays good with age apparently. There were a few stinkers, and I can't say that I enjoyed the last episode and what happens in it, but largely the episode pool had some interesting stories. A particularly interesting one would be "Confession" in which a teenage boy admits to being a pedophile and that he wants helps. "Retro" deals with untreated AIDS in children and the belief that it is not a disease. I didn't like the episode "Stranger" very much, in which an abducted girl returns to her family and not all is what it seems. It just didn't play out very realistically.

The characters are always well played. Hargitay as Dt. Benson and Meloni as Det. Stabler have good chemistry on scene. And Florek, who plays Captain Cragan has always been a favorite of mine. The other detectives played by Ice-T and Belzer get a little screentime in this season, but they always take a second seat to Hargitay and Meloni.

Love SVU, have all 10 seasons so far, I think that Novak should come back or else they should keep Cabot but really need to stop bringing in so many ADA's. Can't wait for season 11 to be out.

We are all familiar with the Law & Order SUV formula. It has been rigid from day one. We start with the sex crime being committed, then with the detectives working on it, to its being kicked over to the prosecutor for trial. This is often the show's strength but also its weakness. We know the formula so well that we're getting inured to it. I can consult my watch to see exactly where we should be in each show. I don't think there is much that can be done about this. Every show has a finite life span and the most any seem to eke out is ten or eleven seasons. And those are the very best shows ever! So I suspect that we are nearing the end with this series. I still enjoy the detectives and their cases and I think the actors do a fine job. I would not replace anyone who is on the show. However, week after week with the same formula cannot help but get a bit tedious after ten years, especially with so many fresh and new series coming to the fore which are less formulaic. I'm still watching but I'm also a little less enthusiastic each and every time I tune in. Probably this tenth series was every bit as good as the prior nine but its rigid formula over all that time is tiresome.

I'm the first to admit that I am even remotely qualified to rate a television program. I have watched fewer than 25 hours of television in the past several years and probably less than 100 hours total since 1980. I am dedicated to aerobic exercise, and 40-60 minutes daily has been my norm for years. The elliptical trainer is my machine of choice but without some diversion, doing 40 -60 minutes per session can be a tedious and onerous grind. Since i started watching these episodes of Law and Order SVU during my daily workouts, the time literally zooms by. They are usually 42+ minutes, and if I feel like doing a full hour session I merely click the button for next video and begin the following episode. These shows are thoroughly engaging, and seem to be a quality production. They serve me well in this situation, but I have acknowledged I very little experience as a television viewer. I did try a few episodes of iconic sitcoms from the past: Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart, and a favorite of my now adult children, McGyver. None of them held my attention longer than a few minutes.
