‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×12 Review: “Tommy Baker’s Hardest Fight”

Law & Order: SVU 23×12 brought season 23 back to the high quality we demand for this show. Instead of trying way too hard to be shocking, or edgy, or any other thing that just never works for this series, the storytelling allowed itself, and its cast, to just…be.

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×09 Review: “The People vs. Richard Wheatley”

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×06 Review: “The Five Hundredth Episode”

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×04 Review: “Another Tale of Two Victims”

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×03 Review: “I Thought You Were on My Side”

Law & Order: SVU continues to be the best it’s been in a long time, if not better than ever, in its 23rd season. And that’s…Without even starting to get into the case of the week, or the crossover/Elliot Stabler…

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×02 Review: “Never Turn Your Back On Them”

The second half of the Law & Order: SVU premiere double-header, “Never Turn Your Back On Them,” was somehow an even more damning look at the wealthy and powerful than the season 23 premiere. Had we not seen the first…
