Reviews Comments: Poes law strikes again. Law And Order Special Victims Unit whole series review by System 32

SVU is plainly a well hidden parody towards our Paedo Hunt culture and vigilante desires for justice. A main character who acts in ways that would portray him as a Complete Monster is the hero, and the audience accepts it because of who he faces.

Who remembers the episode where a Mentally retarded man is harrassed by Stabler? Black Comedy at it's finest.

Complete Monster? Seriously?

There's a lot more to the show than just Stabler.

Never thought of it this way, thanks for the review.

I just see Stabler as one of those really incompetent police officers that can only exist in tv land. He would have a 0% success rate and cause many cases to get thrown out simply for touching it. He's not a complete monster, more a jerkass cowboy cop.

Stabler needs to maybe, settle down into a less stressful job, or at least take a vacation. I remember this show amping up the drama to ridiculous levels sometimes due to the subject matter. One of the things that kind of left a bad taste was the good guys taunting the perps with little prison rape jokes, it just never seemed like the kind of thing someone should be encouraging if they were fighting against sexual violence and rape culture.

The sheer amount of Did Not Do The Research this shows partakes in, as well as the various amounts of ridiculous tropes being played straight in the later seasons and the 13th season actually doing away with all of that in favor of the heroes actually being competent again just points to bad writing.

It really isn't. For one thing, pedophilia isn't featured as much as it would need to be for your review to be true, no offense. Plus, Elliot has gotten chewed out for his anger issues more than once. Speaking of which, how many of you actually realize that there's more to this show than Stabler? I know you do Teraus. Thank you for your comment.

It's not as if that's any better. Hilarious scenarios, incompetent legal procedures, biased treatment of criminals and cardboard characterization. Stabler is one of many issues that plague this show. It's almost like a parody of a cop show or something.
