Review | Law & Order: SVU

AIR DATE: WEDNESDAY 9/23

Detectives Benson and Stabler (Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, respectively) reluctantly team with a wildly cocky cop (Wentworth Miller, late of Prison Break) to pursue yet another rapist in season 11's opener, the first of a three-part tale. The first half is filled with hamminess (when did Meloni turn into David Caruso?) and overly familiar dialogue (“It’s not your fault!” Hargitay tells a victim). Thankfully, it morphs into a gripping case of wrongful imprisonment. (NBC, 9 P.M.)
