I started to watch Law & Order SVU when I visited Canada 4 years ago. My cousin had told me about the series and well I was hooked from day one. The storylines are at times, disturbing, but a true indication of what life is like on some of our streets in todays society. You grow to have a fuller understanding and admiration for the actual people that work in the real SVU teams. The characters are absolutely brilliant, and Olivia and Elliott lead the cast in every single season! Most of the characters from this season are in the other seasons apart from 1, and the team is as strong in this first series as they are today! I thought it would be difficult going back in time, but season 1 hits off with a BANG and you see why this show has succeeded and why it is rated, justifiably the full 5 stars. How Dick Woolf manages to keep on getting these gritty storylines is beyond my imagination. I am usually a season ahead as I get them straight from Canada having been shown there first, and Dick Woolf has also created a Law & Order Trial by Jury. Unfortunately, after season 1 this show has been cancelled - and in my opinion too soon.
Law & Order SVU is absolutely brilliant and you begin to bond with and love all the characters. You need to have this one on your shelves for the collection. A collection would just not be a collection or complete without it!

I started to watch this series on UK television this year. There was a huge advertising campaign and it worked on me - I sat down and watched the first episode.. and well I was hooked. I do not believe I have ever seen such a compelling series as this. As a Brit I am a huge fan of US drama series - I thought that ER would never be beaten for exhausting gritty realism - but I think I have found its equal. A bold and brave series it concentrates on the darker side of crime fighting - that of sex crimes. It required superior story lines and acting to get this series of the ground and running. Once again this debut series had both elements in abundance. The whole cast are excellent especially Hargitay and Meloni who bring a huge aray of emotions to the screen without excessive sentimentality. All the actors play vunerable characters - but their dedication and compassion to their work brings a sense of balance between the terrible crimes they investigate and the people they try to protect. Amazingly there is also a wonderful brand of humour which runs through the episodes which lightens the mood and adds further dimension to the characters and storylines. I am delighted that the first series has finally been brought out on DVD. It deserves to be seen, so do.

Intrigued to see this series having originally started watching SVU on 5UK a few years back & wondered about it's inception, character introductions etc. Given its more than 10 yrs old it holds up extremely well, in fact it doesn't seem 1990's vintage at all. Stories & script as tight as you would expect. More time spent on the characters off duty than in the more recent series I've seen, and spells out their motivations. Munch especially seems to have a greater role, with noticably less concentration on the legal/court side of things than later, in fact ADA's get little screen time, allowing Stabler et al more space. IMHO the best of the L&O franchises, and the best police procedural drama of the lot. Totally recommended.

This is a new favourite, as I've only started watching this within the last couple of years and somehow missed it until then. I don't know how. This isn't a programme for the faint hearted as it focuses upon the New York Special Victims Unit, which is a task force dedicated to the task of solving sex related crimes, anything from rape to people exposing themselves and everything in between.

The first season is a great start, it covers statuary rape, homicide with a guy being shot in his crown jewels. It doesn't make for pleasant watching but each case is handled well and different types of rape, and other sexually based crimes with a variety of victims and suspects. It even covers a case where a suspect is 2 IQ points from being classed as "retarded" and the ethical issue of whether he knows what he really did and the implications.

This is one of the best TV shows and one of the best crime series ever. With excellent quality of writing, great dialogue, excellent casting (Dan Florek, Christopher Meloni, Richard Belzer and Mariska Hargitay are excellent), great acting - this is a major achievement. One warning however - this is a show about sex crimes, often involving children, so it is VERY schocking and very dark.

Enjoyable series, however I won't buy any further episodes from this series as they haven't bothered to include subtitles in any of the other seasons. This is a real shame for those of us who need them. The only alternative left for us is to download the episodes and subtitles (which are available for all the seasons). This clearly another example of the producers being penny wise and pound foolish.
