Doesn't get much better than this
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SVU is a staple of not only NBC and its affiliates, but also the crime drama genre. With that being said, this episode of SVU is one of the best, if not the best, episode that I have EVER seen.

It's always nice to see famous guest stars on SVU and seeing Robin Williams planted into this episode was a nice gesture. It also turned out to be a brilliant casting move. Williams absolutely steals the show as a deranged sociopath who resists authority every step of the way.

Twists and turns at every corner, right up until the climax of the episode and even with a few minutes to spare in the hour slot.

Again, this is one of the best SVU episodes I have ever seen, along with "911" and "Raw".
