- Law & Order: SVU -Our Podcast Dives Into The History Of 'Law & Order: SVU' Because We're Addicted Like A Chocoholic Likes Chocolate
What's the best crime series on TV? Duh-duh. It's Law & Order: SVU, of course, a series that defied early critics to become the longest-running primetime TV drama in history. And it's still running, 22 years after its premiere, despite losing one half of its very popular leading characters. But as we celebrate Elliot Stabler's return in Law & Order: Organized Crime (and continue to celebrate Olivia Benson's continually strong character arcs on the series), our TV history podcast, TV. Watch. Repeat., is looking back at the character's humble beginnings, when SVU premiered in 1999.
In our latest episode, we explore the surprising names of those who could have played Stabler, research the identity of the man who boasts perhaps the most famous Law & Order monologue, and look back at some great Ice-T moments — and some great John Mulaney Ice-T moments. Plus, not everyone rooted for romance between Benson and Stabler — listen to find out which two characters have a wealth of fan fiction roving the internet about a romance that never was.
