I needed a new episode, for my LAW & ORDER: SVU addiction. This one DEFINITELY DELIVERED!! "FATHER'S SHADOW", much like every other LAW & ORDER SVU episode, keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat. Although, it may take L&O "fanatics" a while to get over the absence of "Detective Stabler; "Benson" most assuredly keeps viewers tuned in. The father in this episode; is a self-absorbed and malacious creature, who spins any web of deceit that he deems necessary to keep his son in the web of lies. Unfortunately everyone that the father comes into contact with pays the price for this. Throughout the ups and downs of this episode, the question at the back of the viewer's mind is that, "if the root of a tree is corrupted and poisonous; then does that poison extend to any and all fruit which comes from that tree"? One could argue for either side of that answer. But one thing is for certain; the viewer of LAW & ORDER: SVU will always come away from the episode knowing that their mind and heart have been full engaged, by all of the characters that make the show worth viewing every time. L&O sets the standard for great T.V. viewing.

Addicted. The music, the hand-held camera work, the dialogue, the human drama. I can't get enough of Law and Order SUV but like the courtroom original (just plain Law and Order). I like Law and Order CI as well, but tire more easily of Vincent D'Onofrio's mania when I'm not in the mood.

Normally I do not watch this program. In fact I am pretty sure I have never seen it but being a Natasha Lyonnne fan I was intrigued to see what this episode was like. It was actually a well acted show with a good plot. I'd recommend this to others.

I've watched all episodes since season 1. It's addictive, and great fun. Mariska Hargitay remains sexy and business-like as usual.

This was a very good season, the show is still worth watching even with ES gone. The new characters are complex and likeable.

SVU had been a great show for a while (from the 3rd season onwards). But for the last few seasons, it seemed to have lost its way: focusing on the soap operas of Elliott and his marriage and Olivia and her desire to be a parent; increasing unbelievability of story lines (the "Dale Stuckey Crime Genius" anyone?); the sympathy of the detectives for the criminals; and the lack of rotation in the unit (we keep hearing that "the average stay in SVU is 2 years" but they've been there for 10+ and yet none of them are depressed, psychotic, or disturbed?? please!).

However, with the new additions to the cast, and a return to "crime-focused stories", it seems to have re-envigorated the show, one of the best on tv. Hope it keeps it up. (Though, I do wish they would go back to some more believable story-lines again).

i think i got so weary of elliot stabler's same old-same old week in and week out that i, surprisingly, don't seem to miss him this season. I've watched every episode of every season, including this one. The two new detectives are fine but, frankly, I would be happier if they just used Ice T more. Belzer too. I've always thought those two weren't used enough.the olivia role is fine and mariska is doing fine with it.

as to this episode it involves a couple who have just driven into NYC. they claim their baby was hijacked along with the car. the police immediately suspect that one or both of them has murdered the baby instead. instead of doing the predictable plot arc with this story, I was surprised to discover that there was a rather new plot twist I hadn't seen before. So this episode was quite good.
