Thought it was free with Prime!
Verified purchase
When I placed the order for a TV Series, I thought it was free with my Prime Membership and Amazon Fire stick! I was wrong and have been trying to cancel the order with no luck! I am within 48 hours of placing the order. If it is still cancellable, would someone let me know how. The Status is still PENDING.

emotions, wounded
Verified purchase
this show always hits in places emotionally we don't want to go, but it is sometimes is exactly where we need to go. It reminds us that life is not just black and white. It speaks of subtle shadows where the unthinkable dwells and flourishes just beneath a seemingly normal façade. I purchased the episode Bad Blood because it reminded me how fragile we are, how deep wounds go and how when we least expect it the pain can erupt even when we think we have buried it and left it all behind. It reminds me to be kind because we all carry emotional scars no one can see. As for the show itself as always superb acting, excellent storyline, one of the best shows on air.

You'll want to be aware of the content, some of it can be really disturbing, but this is an excellent show.
This season is older and was filmed before the advent of excellent cameras, so be aware it's not the best video quality.

Great episode!
Verified purchase
I am a huge fan of this show. I wanted to see the first episode again. Sometimes I have problems trying to find episodes online, the quality of certain videos online are crappy, or the video is cut short. Watching the episode thru Amazon was nice for a change. I saw the entire episode. It was clear and not choppy. It wasn't free, but at least it wasn't expensive.

Raw and unyielding
Verified purchase
Early series L&O SVU is what the series was originally about ... the twisted crimes that no one wants to think exist. Later years it would be cleaned up quite a bit to become more consumable by a broader audience, but this is the creme de la creme for SVU fans. The team camaraderie portrayed by the cast, the cameo appearances by the late Jerry Orbach and his L&O original series sidekick, good stuff if you are into the L&O series. I can't watch too many of these in a row, though, they are that raw. Good cops getting sick people off of the street.

Great start to a great series!
Verified purchase
The beginning of the best TV show on the planet. You can't go wrong with SVU. I have all seasons on DVD but occasionally I download an episode or two. Payback is the pilot episode. It is wonderful. Great drama and some humor along the way with the original cast. Hargitay and Meloni's chemistry is evident from this very first episode. They are just so good together. Dann Florek as Captain Cragen is another who helps to make this show the success that it became. The downloading is quick and easy and the picture on my computer screen is great. If you love SVU, this is a must purchase for you.

normally it would be 5 stars, it is a great series, but I've rented twice from Amazon prime and it buffers every 4 or 5 minutes making it unwatchable.
