I've been hearing such impressive things about SVU recently. I've never watched a single episode (forgive me, I live in the UK!), but this really seals the deal. They seem to really focus on practical, progressive ideas, and give their female characters meaningful roles, and goddamn, I appreciate those things so much.

Where should an SVU newbie start? At the beginning of the series? Or is there a better, more recent point that'd be great to jump in?
