The Best Episodes from All 20 Years of ‘Law & Order: SVU’

This article originally appeared on VICE Canada.

It feels like we’re dangerously close as a culture to reaching peak true crime content. Every week a new podcast or documentary pops up to do a deep dive on a grisly, unsolved murder. But one series has been banging away at it for nearly two decades, peeking at the underbelly of New York’s most heinous sex crimes for 20 seasons. And yes, I have somehow managed to watch every single episode in its entire history (438 of them to be exact, NBD).

I’ve thought a lot about why I watch the show so obsessively and what pathological abnormalities exist in me that I find a sex crime show so soothing. I think in the end, it’s both the appeal of seeing a kind of justice play out in fiction that is so seemingly impossible to achieve in real life and a

Edie Falco on Her Career, Roles and Creating a Character

Actress Edie Falco

“I’ve been exceedingly lucky to find the roles that I’ve found and to work with the people that I’ve worked with” – Edie Falco

Four-time Emmy Award-winner Edie Falco has been nominated yet again for an Emmy for her performance as real-life defense attorney Leslie Abramson in the miniseries Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Brothers.

Our Favourite Crime Shows Of All Time

Dexter (2002 – 2012)

Starring: Michael C Hall, Jennifer Carpenter

When this show about a do-gooder serial killer premiered on Showtime, it toppled conventions on what — and who — a protagonist should be. Dexter’s adopted father Harry recognised his son would be unable to rise above his insatiable thirst for, well, murder. Harry, a police officer, knew just how a criminal could get around the cops. As a gift from father to son, Harry teaches Dexter how to kill without getting caught, and how to choose victims who are already guilty of other crimes.

The twist? In addition to being a murderer himself, Dexter is an indispensable Forensics Expert of the Miami police department. Throughout its eight seasons, Dexter redefined what a crime show was, and who a criminal is.

NBC Gives The Green-light To Law And Order: Hate Crimes

For nearly 30 years, the Law Order franchise has dominated the genre of police (and lawyer) procedural dramas. Since the original’s debut in 1990, the franchise has gone on to spawn five additional spin-offs: Special Victims Unit, Criminal Intent, Trial By Jury, LA, and True Crime. SVU, which stars Mariska Hargitay (and up to season 12, Christopher Meloni), will be entering its record-tying 20th season this Fall. Now, fans of the popular brand of television justice will be developing a sixth spin-off.

NBC has just ordered a 13-episode run for Law Order: Hate Crimes, the next chapter in creator/executive producer Dick Wolf’s expanding universe of cops and attorneys. NBC’s Co-President of Scripted Programming Lisa Katz had this to say to Deadline regarding the news:

“As Law Order: SVU enters its remarkable 20th season, it is exciting to get back into business
