Charisma-The Best SVU Episode Ever Done!Rating: 5 likes, 0 dislikes
"Charisma" is the hallmark episode of Law And Order-SVU. It just doesn't get any better than this. The plot of this episode is gritty,gut-wrentching and heartbreaking. A con artist and pedophile,Abraham Ofinian/Eugene(played to perfection by Jeff Kober) squares off against Detective Olivia Benson and the rest of the SVU team in a battle of wits that has a twelve year old girl(pregnant with Ofinian/Hoff's child) as the prize. Mariska Hargitay(Detective Olivia Benson) won the first major acting award(Gloden Globe-for Best Actress in a television drama series) for any Law And Order series for this episode. Ms. Hargitay's scenes with Jeff Kober were simply astounding. The emotional level set by the two during their confrontations set a new standard for the series that will be hard to duplicate. Ms. Hargitay and Mr. Kober should have been standing on the podium at Emmy time for this kind of dedication to their craft. It is amost unimaginable that SVU could ever again reach this kind of perfection.
