The worst offense calls for the best defense, and ours comes in the form of Detective Olivia Benson (Emmy winner Mariska Hargitay) and her partner Elliot Stabler (Emmy nominee Christopher Meloni). Or, as we like to call them: good cop, good cop. Along with a dynamic group of detectives, they devote their lives to the Special Victims Unit of the NYPD. This acclaimed hit series in the Law & Order franchise enters its 12th season with even more storylines that shed light on the most thought-provoking crimes against humanity. With plenty of special guests and five Emmys under its belt, the show continues to make headlines as one of TV's most-watched dramas. And there's no crime in that.
