Top critical review
Just the right levels of intensity, drama, action, and character development. The casting is also just right.

I have always enjoyed Law and Order SVU as well as the other Law and Order shows. SVU is my favorite though.
Ever since Stabler left, this show has gone downhill fast. It is devolving into a night-time soap opera versus true drama. Benson plays a weak lead and her acting has tanked dramatically. She wears the same expression on her face throughout the episodes as though she has OD'd on botox. The writing has grown stale and there has been no one to replace the combination of attitude, conflict (internal + external), presence, warrior, and family man that Stabler portrayed throughout every season. I no longer watch every episode. Too many of them are about why we need to become a sterilized, PC society void of any opinion that may hurt someone's feelings.
