He was in this week's episode ushering out ADA Barba. It looks like his replacement will be the handsome(r) ADA from Chicago....

Season 18 is apparently getting a bullshit DVD-R release on Amazon.

One of the weakest episodes of the entire series.

Agree. Barba would have never done that.

Law and Order SVU forever

We take this show for granted because it's been on so long. 20 seasons and still going strong, with no chance of cancellation any time soon. As long as Mariska Hargitay wants to keep going, it will probably be on. It's still pretty good, at times as good and disturbing as the Stabler years, although not consistently. If Ice-T ever decides to leave they might have a problem, but I can forsee it still going even then.

Speaking of Law and Order, I've never seen the original series from beginning to end and there's nowhere you can stream them all. Does anyone know why?

Re: Law and Order: SVU (NBC) -- Series Thread

I agree, this show is nothing if not consistent with the occasional WTF-episode or storyline 'ripped from the headlines'.

Personally I love the Stabler years when he seemed scarier than the criminals they encountered and you really never knew how far things would go before he finally written off.

SVU has done a good job of keeping things fresh every few years rotating in some new faces with crazy backstories that are always good for some character development storylines. The current cast seems pretty stale at this point and I'm looking forward to moving on from gambling addict white trash Rollins and boring Carisi. Ice-T has been milking it for years and the show wouldn't lose much by fading him out the way they did with Belzer.

I'd love to see them get 3 or 4 young rookies in there to mix things up soon.

Was this past episode good? I meant to record it due to the guest stars.

Yeah this really is the most consistent show on TV. I thought it was done once Meloni left, but here we are.

Last SVU ep reminded me of the 911 Ep on Fox where the two brothers lived in the packed home.

Got it. Just mentioned Hulu in case he had it and didn't know SVU was there.

Yep, it's passing the OG L&O this season and will pass Gunsmoke with the renewal. If only the kept the original, which was by far the best. I don't understand why people would rather watch a L&O show about sexual crimes compared to your every day, good old fashioned murder.

Yet, it's somehow not good enough to do proper DVD releases for the past few seasons.

Hopefully, because he's rejoining Strike Back for the second "final" season.

I didn't know until about a year ago that Mariska Hargitay was the daughter of Jane Mansfield.

I do like L&O:SVU but always thought the original Law and Order was much better, Never really understood how the original ended and this continued but not a huge deal. They do need new characters, Rollins are Carisi are not super interesting.

Thread bump for having both Craigen and Amaro in the most recent episode.

Show is still solid after all these years.
