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

Law & Order: SVU‘s 500th episode was nothing if not a collection of contradictions. “The Five Hundredth Episode” was incredibly well done but not something I’d feel comfortable watching over and over again for entertainment. It brought back some familiar…

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ 2×05 Review: “The Good, The Bad and The Lovely”

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×05 Review: “Fast Times @TheWheelHouse”

‘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”

‘Law & Order: SVU’ 23×01 Review: “And The Empire Strikes Back”

Law & Order: SVU’s season 23 premiere was, without a doubt, a strong kickoff to what we hope will finally be the season. If you’re here, you probably know what that means. If not, well… Ask your leading lady why…
