Honestly, the fact that the show lasted this long is just impressive on its face.

Powerful work from Sally Murphy as the boy's conflicted mom, and a strong first impression from Sandrine Holt in a recurring role as psychologist Lisa Abernathy.

I've been waiting all summer for the return of Law & Order: SVU and the season premiere didn't disappoint. If anything, it exceeded expectations.

September 28, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

By introducing a conversation about masculinity and gun control in its very first episode of the season, SVU seems to be suggesting that if, for some reason we haven't been having these discussions before, it's about time for us to start.
