SVU returned to top form this season. Except for a couple of episodes, I was very impressed with this season. Not having Benson and Stabler rehash the same old things were great. Kelli Giddish was the only good thing about Chase, so I'm glad she gets a chance to shine here. Danny Pino was weird to watch on SVU at first, but the more I watched, the more I forgot his Cold Case character. Hell, I even forgot B.D. Wong wasn't a regular until he showed back up. My favorite episode was probably Father Dearest. That one was just about as sick and twisted as you can get on network TV.
