Reasons I sit and watch hours on end of Law and Order: SVU

My favorite TV guilty pleasure.
  1. Olivia Benson is a certified badass, and, in spite of the cheesy one-liners, she's a warrior who fights for women, children, and victims in general. Also, she always has the best hairstyles throughout the seasons.
  2. These two heroes. The show hasn't been the same since Munch left.
  3. The stories can be outrageous, sad, frightening, or "ripped from the headlines," but most of the episodes are compelling and thought-provoking.
  4. It's the best of the Law and Order franchise, because of the complexity of the stories and the moral ambiguity that they often weave in.
  5. That theme song is just perfect.
