TV show description:      
Though this is a spin-off of Law & Order, this show spends more time on the characters’ lives than others in the Dick Wolf franchise. The relationship between Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) has become particularly emotional at times. SVU also typically contains the most controversial subject matter and frequently focuses on cases involving subjects like rape, child abuse, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, or gun control.

Other characters include Detective Sergeant John Munch (Richard Belzer), Detective Fin Tutuola (Ice T), Detective Chester Lake (Adam Beach), Captain Don Cragen (Dann Florek), Senior Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak (Diane Neal), Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March), Dr. George Huang (B.D. Wong), and Dr. Melinda Warner (Tamara Tunie).

    Love Mariska! One small favor though. Have her stop dropping her voice to a mere whisper, for effect, in every single show. It’s lost it’s zap now.

    This is The best Show. I have watched it since the day it started. I am a huge Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay fan and have been since the very begining of their careers.
