Over the course of 20 seasons and more than 450 episodes, Law & Order: SVU has covered a lot of ground. Through its “torn from the headlines” plots, it has told stories about all kinds of crimes and, more importantly, all kinds of victims. Mariska Hargitay, the one actor who has been with the show from the very beginning, has plenty to be proud of. So, when we asked her, she understandably wasn’t able to focus on any particular episode. Rather, she talked about what the show has meant to the viewers.
