Law & Order: A Law Enforcement Perspective
By Heather Gray
"One of the things that still makes me laugh is the hands-on portrayal of the role of the prosecutor. Very often we see them conducting interviews with suspects, witnesses and victims. You should know, though, that in reality this would not happen."
"Aftershock": Law & Order in Reverse
By Ursula
"In a typical episode, the initial crime raises a host of questions, which the characters answer, or attempt to answer, in the course of the hour. In 'Aftershock,' however, the typical crime-related questions are already answered. Instead, as the episode develops, more and more questions are raised about the characters."


 


Last issue, we asked you to tell us what you thought about your favorite character -- or about SVU. Here are some replies!
Trial Part Two: In Defense of Special Victims' Unit
By Brittany Frederick
"...You canít call Special Victims Unit a spinoff series or a copycat or a clone Ė it is not. It has parts of Law & Order but it is uniquely its own. And itís time for people to stop judging this series based on the beginning of the title and more as an entity on its own."
Lennie Briscoe
By Jackie Leaf
"From his first appearance in 'Point Of View' and the line, 'What I was doing, you don't wear a beeper.' (At least that's how I recall the line), I was hooked."
