Elliot Stabler has always been on SVU and makes the show almost all it is. he is good looking and really portrays the detective that every single girl would want on their rape case if god forbid they were raped. Elliot Stabler really fights for each person as if they were his own child.

I think that Detective Olivia "Liv" Benson is who made svu what it is today. I sat that cause she is the cast member who connects with the audience and the victims. Unlike Elliot who only chases the guys and nothing else. Liv is the person who goes and chases the bad guy even when she is disabled. She is the one without her there would be no svu. It would be sv instead.

I agree that Liv helps to make SVU a little better show to watch, but not anywhere close to as much as Stabler does. She does not add the emotion to the level that Stabler does. She and him make an amazing team. There are times she is not on the show and Elliot makes the entire show worth while with out Liv. Where as Olivia only adds a minimal amount to SVU. This is why the new seasons are not worth watching because Elliot is not in them.

she is not way better I said she adds minimal viewing pleasure. She does not amount to anything near Elliot. Stabler compassion for the job makes him so wonderful. The way he picture each case as one of his own children shows the audience the amount of care he puts into his job each day.

I thought actor Chris Meloni (Elliot Stabler) improved a lot over the years. His character is over-the-top, a caricature, and hard to sell as realistic. I thought Meloni rose to the challenge. The whole series is a hard sell. Plots often end with the chain saw killer turning out to be a nine year old girl who is really clever for her age -- or something like that. Nonetheless, a talented cast often brings it off.

Agree with Maikuru and Pro :) I miss Elliot. Alex Cabot is my favorite though ;)

I agree with you, Pro. Stabler made that show. It seemed like his rage and frustration was building to an inevitable finale where he goes off and has to decide between becoming a monster himself or leaving the force.
