Critic Reviews for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 13

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The show must go on, and in true Law and Order style, it's time to bring in some fresh blood in the form of a tough, but twangy belle, Amanda Rollins...I look forward to seeing how she plays off Benson.

Rollins might grow into an interesting character and perhaps newcomer Danny Pino will fill Stabler's shoes very soon.

September 21, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The whole thing was as seamy as the series usually gets - the tale was echt SVU, but this one with better dialogue.

February 8, 2012 | Full Review…

For one night at least, the only surviving Law & Order series in America was at the top of its game.
