SVU Season 20 Episode 24 Review

Rob Miller returning could have been explosive. He is a powerful attorney with lots of connections and a vendetta against Benson. Sure, the Benson-in-danger trope gets leaned on too often, but it sounded interesting. Instead, Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 24 chose to end Miller's story in a bizarre manner and destroy a couple of characters along the way. The worst thing about this story is that it made absolutely no sense. Nikki Staines wa... more

SVU Season 20 Episode 23 Review

Law & Order: SVU often takes stories from the news, but three at once? Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 23 attempted to tackle the Jussie Smollet story, the claims of anti-Semitism against Representative Ilhan Omar, and the Covington High scandal all at once. I give them kudos for taking on tough issues in these emotionally charged political times. But the resulting story lacked nuance and was more difficult to swallow than the average SVU story. Tak... more

SVU Season 20 Episode 22 Review

FINALLY! Fin has been shoved in the background far too often, but on  Law & Order: SVU Season 20 Episode 22 he not only got a story centered around him but a bona-fide, painful backstory! FIn found himself caught between two worlds as he struggled to catch a would-be killer and had to confront the friends who took him in after his mom's death, and every minute was a joy to watch. There's no doubt that this story was worth the wait. It started ... more

I’m thrilled that Warren is returning... more

'Law & Order: SVU' Renewed For Record-Breaking 21st Season By NBC As Dick Wolf & Mariska Hargitay Write TV History

The renewal also marks a milestone for Hargitay’s Lt. Benson as the longest-running character in a primetime live-action series.

Law & Order: SVU FAN COMMENTS (2)

  • Level 43
    This show has lasted about twelve years longer than it should have. There's little to no chemistry with the characters any longer. There's very little continuity with the characters, and what is there is tired and predictable.


  • Level 36
    This show has gotten somewhat worse with Stabler's departure. Amaro just doesn't seem to fit in the series at all. Rollins however does seem to fit in, but I really feel that Amaro is really bringing the show down. I hope that he serves one season more then gets replaced by someone that can fill the massive gap Stabler left in his wake.
