Superb!
12 December 2007 | by leericheySee all my reviews

I completely disagree with anyone who thought this was a bad episode. It was a terrific episode and one I wish I had recorded. The "Special Victims Unit" of Law and Order is my favorite of the Law and Order series, mostly because I find all the characters more interesting. I like the teaming of Hargitay and Meloni and find them both very human and very resilient. I also like Dann Florek's character. I have enjoyed every episode I've seen but especially this one. The acting, directing, and camera work was excellently done and I was moved in every moment. Like Night Heat in the 1980s, and The Practice, this Law and Order is one of the most interesting crime dramas. All-in-all, both this episode and this series is one of my favorites!
