“Lady, don’t get your bloody hand on my suit. I’m filled with anger, not Tide sticks.”

In honor of SVU's TV milestone, we look back at the episode that started it all. Veteran cop Elliot Stabler and his rookie partner Olivia Benson, along with a squad room of crazy characters, investigate the murder of a cabbie who got his junk cut off. But they soon discover the victim might be a war criminal accused of raping dozens of women. 

We're talking about SVU season 1 episode 1 Payback. Our returning guest is Diana Goodman from the ThirtyTwentyTen podcast. This episode is inspired by stories of war atrocities during the Bosnian War.
