    Kind of doesn't give me a choice...


    The season was better than I expected. I miss Stabler, but I'm glad the cases feel like actual Special Victim's cases again.

    I didn't like that Stabler was gone in the beginning...but towards the middle of the season, I was saying, "Stabler? Stabler who?"

    I really enjoyed SVU's season premiere! There were a bunch of new characters which made it a bit confusing (not to mention that the actress who played Foster used to be in Criminal Minds, which I'd just watched prior to this) but I liked how it all played out. Some nice twists and turns. But I still don't like Amaro (as a matter of fact, I grew to dislike him more in this ep) and I didn't really see the purpose of Rollins in this episode; I know she's now one of the team but the episodes would have been pretty much the same if she'd been absent. Nice to see Munch again and Cassidy too, of course.

    I never really got into the spinoffs, but I loved the original L&O. At least, up until Jerry Orbach left. Dennis Farina's character was just too much of a goombah. I liked Milena Govich well enough, but by that point the rest of the cast had changed so much that it felt like a watered down version of the show I once loved, so I tuned out.

    For me, the golden years were seasons six through nine. Schiff, McCoy, Kincaid/Ross/Carmichael, Briscoe, and Curtis.

    Personally, I like SUV the best. SUV made me wanna go back and watch some of the original episodes.

    I like the original L&O but SVU is my favorite. If there's an episode of L&O on then I might watch it if come across it and enjoy it, but I make sure to watch every single SVU episode.

    I'm with the probie. I liked the original of who we see the police and attorneys. I find the spinoffs focus too much on the police part and just become another police drama. To me what made Law & Order unique is showing both sides.

    Yes, I do like the episodes that show a nice balance more, but the stories of L&O just all get the same (since there seems to be more focus on the court rather than police) and the SVU stories are different, with different victims/focus, even if we don't always make it to court.

    Yes, but they often centered around interesting legal issues, so it was enjoyable to see both sides of the argument presented as well as L&O generally did. Good courtroom dramas are much rarer than good police procedurals.

    Now, as many people know, the Law and Order franchise is sort of on its last legs here in America. Criminal Intent ended this summer, Law and Order Los Angeles got cancelled after its first season, and, of course, the original L&O ended last year after twenty years. Conviction and Trial By Jury were both failures.
    How wrong I was. SVU was recently renewed for a 21st season, breaking the record for live action shows in America.

    Is anyone still watching? I gave up somewhere during the season after Stabler left and I have seen a smattering of episodes since when I am bored.

    Either way, when they EVENTUALLY end it they need to have Stabler come back for an episode.

    I'm still watching...just like I was back in 2012. LOL. I've always been more of a Benson fan. So...yeah.
