This idea has been in my head for a while, but this is the first time I got around to sharing it online. I'm hoping that people around the net get to this and share their thoughts and opinions about two of SVU's interesting detectives.
Some of the similarities I see in Detectives Stabler and Amaro are these: Both are family men, work well with Olivia Benson, don't want to be the window into a world of crime for their kids, and have issues that are often unresolved much of the time.
Anyone that sees other similarities between them, feel free to share it.Read more >

This week I've been on Amazon and bought the very special boxset that features the First seasons of L&O, Criminal Intent and SVU. Having watched syndicated episodes on the UK's 5USA or main channel 5, I'm thoroughly looking forward to seeing how it all started. Especially L&O - seeing as all of the characters are ones I've never seen before - apart from Cragen of courseRead more >
Guess I should note that I'm talking about Law & Order: Criminal Intent. That might be helpful. Yay! It looks like Cloo channel is going to run the whole series from the beginning. It will be my first time seeing every episode in order. I hope they stick to it. It has already started earlier today, but is repeating today's episodes starting at 3pm EST with "One." Time to set my DVR!
I'm only noting all of this because Sundance Channel said they were going to run the entire Law & Order series from beginning to end. Except, they didn't. They ended up only going to about 1998, then they started skipping episodes and it just got all out of control.Read more >
Dick Wolf is the creator of Law & Order. Michael Imperioli was an actor in several episodes. In the Sopranos, Christopher mentions Dick Wolf a lot after he gets into the movie business. Don't know how many instances and what content or context. Just about the entire cast of the Sopranos also played on earlier episodes of Law & Order, before Sopranos came out in 1997/8 (?). Everybody but Tony from Sopranos did at least one episode of Law & Order before Sopranos came out. I just think that's amazing. I'd really like to learn more about this. Do the creators of each show know each other, or knew each other before Sopranos was created, at least?Read more >

On January 1, 2014, Law & Order began running on the Sundance Channel, We-Women's Entertainment, and WGN America, in addition to its continuing run on TNT. I don't know if all of those channels have access to the entire package of episodes; Sundance's promoes for the series state that it's "from the beginning". Indeed, they started with "Everybody's Favorite Bagman" on 1/1.Read more >
Recently announced on tvshowsondvd was the release date of Law & Order's Thirteenth year DVD set. That is the 2002-2003 season that included Fred Dalton Thompson to the cast as District Attorney Arthur Branch. A conservative DA as opposed to the more liberal Nora Lewin and Adam Schiff. I believe this character came at a time he was needed in a post-9/11 time and also so there would be someone who would chalange the views of his more liberal collgues EADA McCoy and the more liberal ADA Southerlyn.
According to tvshowsondvd, the seperate DVD of season 13 will be released on November 5th later this year. According to tvshowsondvd and Amazon.com, there does not seem to be any extras included in this package. But an important thing to note is th…Read more >

In Law & Order, the detectives from the 27th Precinct work in a Detectives Squad, meaning that not everyone in that squad is a homicide detective. In a city as large New York City, there can't be just one unit responsible for handling all the murders that take place in that town. That's why they have detective squads in New York and LA. Yes I am aware of the infamous Robbery Homicide Division in LA, but there are also detective squads located in different precints throughout the city. (Read Micheal Connelly's earier Harry Bosch Novels.) So who ever is running this Wikia, please change that about the 27th precinct and the detectives, who are Homicide detectives part of the 27th's Precinct's Detectives Squad.

Hello SVU Fans,
I am posting an interview for a web show called Media Mayhem with Allison Hope Weiner. Recently, Allison interviewed past SVU executive producer, Neal Baer, who discusses the many shows he has worked on (SVU, ER and A Gifted Man) and he has some interesting tidbits to share about SVU, including its most controversial episode ever.
Check out the full show here:
Thank you for taking a look,

I am so sick and tired of people complaining that SVU has gone downhill since Chris Meloni left. Yes he was actor, yes Stabler was a great character, yes we miss him on the show but it doesn't mean the show sucks, the show is still good, people can't seem to handle change. The original Law and Order had cast changes all the time and i never remember people complaining about it as much as they are about SVU. Get over it!
By the way if the show sucks so much how come NBC renewed it for a 14th season.Read more >
Not only has Stabler gone, but apparently so have the writers and production crew. I've given it time - watching this new incarnation of my #1 TV show, and I'm not happy.
The new 'look & feel' has gone to the 'light side', bright lights, bright colors, weak plots and overabundance of tear-jerker episodes.
I don't like it this new show at all. I'm just glad I have a DVR and can capture so many of the old shows. I'm sure I'll be forgetting those old shows as time passes - and I can then watch them again ;-)
Farwell, 'new' SVU -Read more >
Why has SVU suddenly started to refer to trials as taking place in "Superior Court". There is no Superior Court in New York. Felony trials take place in Supreme Court which has been the accurate designation since the series began. California's trial court is the Superior Court, not NY's.Read more >
oh my god law and order svu almost sucks totally without chris meloni playing elliot. i cant believe that the producer puched it this far with all the new character changes and just plain old changes and stuff but he also could of delt wiht it ya know, but god i almost cant watch the show, now its unbearable. i hope he guest stars and or come back sometime whos with me?Read more >
After a high-profile gig on Grey's Anatomy, T.R. Knight left the medical procedural and went off television to return to theater. Now, the veteran actor will be marking his return to TV with a guest gig on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit!
Playing a role quite different from Dr. George O'Malley, T.R. Knight will play a man accused of being a serial rapist in an episode airing this fall.
Meanwhile, the absence of Elliot Stabler will be deeply felt by Olivia and the rest of the squad when SVU returns in the fall. Although we have two new detectives to look forward to, Stabler will be deeply missed after a 12-year run at SVU!
Are you looking forward to seeing T.R. Knight? What about Danny Pino or Kelli Giddish as the new Stabler and Bensen? See…Read more >

Hello Law & Order fans!
There are exciting news about the new detectives of season 13 and Mariska Hargitay.
There are rumors everywhere about what will happen in Law & Order: SVU or if it is also going to be cancelled.
A known fact is that Mariska Hargitay alias Olivia Benson will only appear in a recurring capacity and nobody yet knows what will happen in season 14.
The new detectives include known faces such as Danny Pino, known from "Cold Case" who replaces Christopher Meloni in season 12 already, and Kelli Giddish, the star of the failed NBC show "Chase" who is going to join the cast from the 13th season on.
Yet we don't know what their name will be or how their humor is going to be, but we are looking forward to discover that!

With the broadcast last night of Law & Order - Criminal Intent (26 June ,'11), we say goodbye, to what I thought was the best L&O spinoff, and a huge part of that, is due to the terrific acting of the cast - especially Mr. Vincent D'Onofrio, as Det. Goren.
Mr. D'Onofrio's character was one of the most complex characters on television. He was both brilliant, and tortured.
I'm not going to write a synopsis of the series, or characters. I just want to say thank you ALL (both in front of and' behind the camera) on L&O CI for a terrific 10 years.
I know others would agree, when I say it would be great if Goren & Eames returned in a couple of movie-length episodes a few times a year, much as another great detective did - the late, great COLUMBO.

Before the new season starts in the fall, i want to say how I feel about the previous season. It is sad that the new Law & Order series, Law & Order: LA, will come to an end. I was getting use to that show and it was nice to see someone from the original Law & ORder series again. But it is too bad that we will not see a show in the original Law & Order format with a police investigtion followed by a criminal prosecution. SVU isn't the same. If you're lucky, you might get to see a police procedural instead of a crappy soap opera like season 12's Bombshell episode which was a waste of time. And if you are even more lucky, you might actually see a trial and see today's issues being argued between lawyers in front of a judge and jury. Criminal…Read more >
So, I just found this blog tonight. I didn't think anyone else really appreciated the series as much as I did. I'm pleased to find like-minded fans. I've never been one to boast upon art, but I feel like Dick Wolf really created a piece of art with this series. Folks always talk about how art can influence their lives. I personally have never put much merit in such sayings.
That being said, I feel like, in this rare instance, that art has inflicted a profound influence on my life. I started watching the series in the first season of L&O with my grandfather when I was very young. I loved it. I simply could not pull myself away from the television.
While considering myself the complete opposite of most die hard TV fans (Trekkies???)....I can h…Read more >
Was there ever a specific point where it's shown how/when Jamie Ross went from being in support of the death penalty (as she was in her first episode ["Causa Mortis"]) to against it (as she states in "Bad Girl")? I know it's not just an oversight, because she gets called on it at some point in between leaving the original series and apearing as a judge on Trial By Jury, but I am really curious what cause her to change her mind, given the strength of her conviction when she argues with McCoy on their first case.Pixie Child 18:02, June 6, 2011 (UTC)Read more >
Can you believe it Christopher Meloni fans!?!? Shortly after learning that Mariska Hargitay is taking a smaller role on SVU, TV Line broke news that Chris Meloni will NOT be returning for SVU's next season!!
After 12 years as Elliot Stabler, Chris will be leaving after negotiations with NBC fell through. We still don't know if this will affect Mariska Hargitay's contract and she's only signed on for 13 episodes for Season 13! I can't believe SVU's taken such a turn after 12 solid years.
What do you think, fans?? Who should replace Stabler and will you still watch SVU??17:56, May 25, 2011 (UTC) Read more >
Breathe easy, Law and Order: SVU fans! Mariska Hargitay isn't leaving the show...but she IS in talks for taking on a slightly different role on SVU. While Christopher Meloni has yet to sign on for Season 13, Mariska Hargitay just inked a new deal with NBC...with a twist.
While Olivia Benson will be a regular fixture, she'll be passing on her detective role to a new female detective, very likely...Jennifer Love Hewitt!? Now that's a strange combination; can you imagine her and Chris Meloni as partners? Meanwhile, Olivia will be promoted to a supervisor role.
What do you think Law and Order fans? Could Jennifer Love Hewitt be a suitable replacement for our Mariska? Let's soak in all the Benson-Stabler partnership we can!

I have been watching this since it started. I am trying to determine if this show has hired writers, since every show that I have seen is nearly an exact duplicate of original Law and Order shows. The plots and results of these shows are IDENTICAL. They have made some minor changes to take in to account the English way. I was suprised, I actually expected something better. The cast is good, but I wonder why they can't write their own material. Must be the CHEAP way. I have stopped watching, if I want to see these shows, I'll watch the original.Read more >
In "Custody" (TOS, 6x14), Robinette (as defence counsel) informs the trial judge, Judge Cyrus Metcalfe, he [Robinette] will be filling for the judge to be removed, because "Three years ago, over dinner at Elio's, you said all drug addicts should be rounded up and sterilized. (...) And if I subpoena him, so will Ben Stone. We nearly fell off our chairs when you said it."
Usually, I know which prior episodes are being refered to, but this one is driving me nuts. I've checked on here (this Wikia), IMDB, and even Wikipedia, but I can't find any mention of the character being in an eariler episode, nor do I remember either a judge ever saying something like that or even Stone and Robinette going to dinner with a judge.Read more >
Having watched every episode of all series I believe it's time for a new and fresh direction called "Law and Order".... 'Depraved Indifference' investigating and prosecuting citizens who turn their backs on crimes, refuse to give evidence and obstruct, through their indifference, the Police in their investigation and prosecution of criminals. Where I live, in Southern Australia, everyone is prepared to get involved, to support the Police, to give evidence in trials, to support victims, and to be complete members of our communities. It strikes me that Americans have become too scared or too selfish and "Depraved Indifference"could change that culture and cut crime rates nationally. In Australia, with our population of 22million, we have few…Read more >

Our Christopher Meloni has clear up the rumors of he going out of SVU. All of the rumors started when an Australian reporter misunderstood some coments form Meloni, here it is the what we are waiting for: The evidence:
"It was rumored that Season 12 may be the last for Meloni after comments to an Australian reporter were misunderstood. Meloni commented that "I think 12 years is enough, a good number" in the Australian newspaper Courier-Mail. Meloni later clarified that at the time he had one year left on his contract and the show hadn't been picked up. "It wasn't [the reporter's] fault." and that he would continue on the show so long as it was picked up.When asked in an interview to Mariska Hargitay if she could envision doing the show with…Read more >

So, my mom's been watching Law & Order since it started, and I've been watching along side. I haven't got obsessed since I've been watching it nonstop Online. It's so addicting :p Anyway, I feel that Elliot & Olivia should be together. I like to write stories, and I read some really good ones online about Olivia and Elliot actually ending up together. Like, fantasies of a fiction show. It sounds kinda nuts, but I've become really obsessed with watching the show & writing the "fantasies." Read mine, and be HONEST, please! If I get good feedback, I'll continue to write. Thanks! xoxoRead more >
