Critic Reviews for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Season 21

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

SVU is still uncomfortably relevant; the show is less urgent, however, than it once was.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Culminates with a relatively simple resolution to a complex problem. Even so, the show maintains a remarkable level of compassion for the victims in question, and viewers can find some comfort in that.

Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…

There's little especially exciting about this formula-driven crime show, but it continues to plug away.

May 18, 2020 | Full Review…

This was a pretty good episode that handled its ripped from the headlines subject matter thoughtfully, however, there were no chase scenes that involved the detectives running after a perp commenting "I hate it when they run."

Oct 14, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Sometimes watching Law & Order: SVU hurts. It shows viewers week after week what it would be like if there were cops that doubled as social workers and didn't care what it took to get justice for victims. Episode 1 was a powerful example of that.

Audience Reviews for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: Season 21

  • Jul 08, 2020
    Absolutely fantastic. After the rather sleepy Season 20, SVU came out with STYLE in Season 21. The most engaging, outraging season since I can't remember when. SVU has never really been 'bad', but this season really hit it's stride.

  • Mar 10, 2020

  • Feb 06, 2020
    has and always will be one of my favourite shows! Really hope it continues for many years to come!
  • Feb 06, 2020
    Love this season!!! dont know why people are bashing on it honestly? Ive watched this show for years and think its as brilliant as it ever was x
  • Feb 06, 2020
    spoilers for new ADA: love this season so far and especially with what the latest episode (11) was about! Also carisi as the new ADA is my absolute favourite since Barba and i very much hope peter scanavino and kelli giddish arent going anywhere because i love them. Mariska is killing it as always and of course so is Ice T
  • Feb 01, 2020
    It always about Mariska. Story lines are to far fetched. Law & Order & Law & Order Criminal Intent were the best. More realistic unlike The Mariska soap opera.

    Svu is not the same without peter stone
  • Jan 18, 2020
    Absolutely loving the modern progression through the series. Don't get me wrong, I love the original seasons (classics) - but it's so awesome to finally see more variety of issues that they deal with, in terms of recent societal norms being acknowledged. There no longer is the typical "pattern" or what felt like "outline" to episodes, rather different perspectives each episode. Still loving it, after all these years!
