21 Reasons We Love SVU - Law & Order: SVU (Digital Exclusive)
Well, well, what can you say about an episode of television that opens with one of the highest ranking officials currently in office making a positive speech and closes with Sgt.

But that's what makes SVU so great: it gets millions of people to watch the VP talk about an extremely important issue - the national backlog of untested rape kits - which could bore viewers under different circumstances, but is instead incorporated into a fictionalized version of one of the most sensationalized true crime narratives in recent years.

Burke and Neal Baer served as chief executive producers to replace Robert Palm. Baer took over in the season finale.
