Editorial Reviews

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit confronts some of its most controversial and topical crimes yet in its powerful thirteenth year. New changes are afoot for the SVU: two new detectives (Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish) join the team, while the returning squad members must deal with the fallout of last season’s shootout and the departure of one of their own. As they face these challenges, a new slew of sex crimes hit the headlines, making it vital that the team learn how to separate their personal emotions from the intense cases they must see through to their stunning ends. Starring Primetime Emmy Award Winner Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T, Dann Florek and Richard Belzer and guest starring Harry Connick, Jr., Andre Braugher, Treat Williams, T.R. Knight and Chloe Sevigny, watch all 23 compelling episodes, back-to-back and uninterrupted, of producer Dick Wolf's award winning, uncompromising series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Law and Order Season 13 is better than ever! September 15, 2012
By Gippy
Season 13 of this excellent drama is by far the best season yet of this award winning series. Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson) does some career-best work as the solo leader of a group of aggressive yet beleagured detectives who ply their craft in a world that sees human beings at their worst. Danny Pino (Nick Amauro) has been expertly cast as her new partner, and his arrival has created a whole new level of complexity and revelation for the characters of the SVU, and watching the progression of Benson and Amauro's professional partnership and personal friendship is both intriguing and compelling. Whether you have never watched the show before, or if you are a long-time fan, this season is incredibly compelling television and worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season! Mariska is an Angel! October 18, 2012
At the begining of season 13, we see Olivia Benson (Emmy and Golden Globe Winner Mariska Hargitay) has lost her partner Elliot Stabler after 12 years of working together, due to his sudden "retirement". What happens over the next 23 episodes is some of the best dramatic network television produced last year. Why it didn't receive several Emmy Nominations is a case that needs solving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Without Meloni, this show is a lot weaker November 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although season 13 had some good episodes, the show has lost a step without actor Christopher Meloni. I fear it won't be long before the show is cancelled.

First many of the people you grew to love are gone from Season 13 noticeably Elliot Stabler. The replacements are a closer like southern belle and a smooth talking gel haired brute. The jury is still out on both of them because; their characters have yet to be fully developed. Whats worse is the gritty filming is gone. They remodelled the SVU station house and with the old station went the raw filming style that made SVU and the Law & Order Franchise so realistic. Now all the perfectly lit scenes scream the fact that these are just sets and the acting appears as forced and artificial as the new surroundings. Because; I love Law & Order I will endure this change but; I don't like it. Many of the story lines in Season 13 are extremely weak and totally predictable. The only great episodes in Season 13 are those that lead to the cliffhanger at the end. This season lacks the sudden plot turns and twists that used to be a Law & Order Staple. The writing is weak to the point where you don't invest yourself in the pain and struggle of the "special victims or their families \ friends!" There are no characters like Lenny Briscoe to liven up horrible situations with his characteristic sardonic wit. In Season 13 they sucked all the juice and flavor from the series and replaced it with a pale boring mix of people. The sets look great unfortunately they look very much like sets. The sets look too damn perfect. The grunge of the old sets and the somewhat blurred filming style let the viewers imagination fill in the blanks when going to the station or other places. I must admit the Rikers Island visits look amazingly good as if they are the real thing. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars New Crew, New Cast, New and Improved Law and Order SVU September 20, 2012
Wow! Just Wow! As soon as Season 9 ended with the departure of Casey Novak, SVU went downhill fast. Seasons 10-12 gave many episodes that were either horribly written, horribly acted, completely unbelievable, not about Special Victims or a combination of the four. While the season finales were all generally better, they all had at least one of those flaws and paled in comparison to the season finales before it. Now with Warren Leight taking the reins and two new actors (Pino and Giddish) coming in, (It's very relieving and not sexist when there's one more female detective as part of the whole which helps even out the reverse-harem these shows seem to have.) this season gets back on track to become one of the top 5 seasons in the franchise. The cases are good and only 3 episodes are really bad with only one of them (Strange Beauty) being horrible. Considering half of the other seasons had horrible episodes, this is a great change of pace. This also is the first season in SVU that I can remember that had some nice continuity. Many small things that happened in one episode carry over into another (Sometimes much later) episode. And let's not forget that finale. It is the best and I mean the best season finale in all of SVU. It had everything you ever needed with the return of a much more jaded Brian Cassidy, a sense of dread over the whole case and Captain Cragen of all people being framed for murder in an escort service's twisted game. There's no question that season 14's premiere will be the most watched in a while. There are some bad habits though that carry on here. Danny Pino's Nick Amaro is becoming Stabler again with all his marital issues and anger problems (I'd even argue that they are worse that Stabler) and the detectives some times make stupid mistakes, but you learn to accept it as the reality they live in and you wouldn't still be watching this if you hated these things. All in all Season 13 was near-perfect.
