Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but as a Stabler fan, the episodes and diagloge around his family during his SVU years to me were the worst. His family issues always slowed the show down. The original L&O was the best -- focused primarily on the case at hand.
As much as I like Stabler (face it, Chris Meloni), I still have a tough time with his personal life being a part of Organized Crime. So, hearing now that his mom will be back is really bumming me out. Between that, his 25 kids and one dead wife, I just want him to focus on interesting cases.
I'm also not into the seaso
