Aired: 1999-

From assault to sodomy, rape to prostitution—all types of illegal fuckery are twisted into a sick crime in SVU episodes. The fast-paced, in-your-face style of the show keeps viewers glued to the screen. Especially since Hayden Panettiere was shown doing something real suspect. I like!

Christopher Meloni (Det. Stabler) once played a sadistic rapist/murder on HBO's Oz; the opposite of his role hunting them down on SVU.
