One of the Best
3 December 2014 | by (Old West Texas) – See all my reviews

Yes, I know that this show has some pretty graphic photos of some pretty violent killings, but, you know, the title of the whole series gives you a "heads up" that this is going to happen.

But it is a great show, with a great character making a one-time appearance, who arguably would be good in his own series. The chemistry between him and Stabler is fun to watch as it develops, and the ending scene is what keeps me coming back to this show.

There is some formula, of course, including "arrest the wrong guy first, and we're all sure he's guilty," and "someone pulls rank on SVU, and we have to do a little cutting of the corners to get back in," but both were well done.

I noticed that Mariska Hargitay was out of this show for medical reasons, and I'm glad she was back in time for the next one, but this one did not need her, and it's nice to see Stabler and Tutuola working together -- things seem to be getting a little better for them after Tutuola ripped Stabler last season and let him know how much he disliked him.

It was also fun to see "Seven of Nine" in a minor role as a defense attorney, though I am beginning to wonder if all the prosecutors in New York and half the defense attorneys are beautiful women with an ax to grind. I also wonder if there are any male judges that are not idiotic buffoons, but that subject is for another day.

My advice: take your time and enjoy this one. It's one of the better ones in a very good series.
