One of the best episodes in the series long run
19 February 2013 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

The aptly titled "Screwed" reveals kinks in the SVU armor as a trial exposes some of the division's "bending" of the law. This installment demonstrates that sometimes police departments turn the other cheek when it comes to matters concerning other officers and, on occasion, their family members.

The storyline also reveals a showing revelation about Finn's nephew, well-played by rapper/actor Ludicrous. LisaGaye Hamilton is equally as good in the role of Finn's ex-wife and the nephew's mother.

"SVU" is known for its stellar roster of guest stars and this one scores in that arena. In addition to Ludicrous and Hamilton, the episode features Steven Weber ("Wings) and in recurring roles, Judith Light as Judge Donnelly, Ernest Waddell as Fin's son, and John Schuck returns as the chief of detectives. Star Jones and Nancy Grace appear, of course, as themselves.

As usual, all of the regular cast members excel as they usually do and with such a crowded entry, each of them has his/her moment or two.

Why this installment didn't get an Emmy or two is one of TV's injustices.
