I think once viewers understand that this is not supposed to be a branch of SVU they could give it an opportunity on its own. People are comparing it to its franchise when in fact it's really its own show. It doesn't wrap up with a bow every episode bike SVU does. The storylines are longer and for me that's a nice change because I never thought it was realistic for the cases in SVU to be solved within an episode or two. If you're interested in 21st-century mob crimes that are of this time, I don't think that you will have an issue with show one bit. The only reason why I'm not giving it a full 10 is because I'm not sure if it's a budget issue, but props just don't look good on the show. You'll see an iPhone that doesn't have an iPhone interface. You'll see I'll prop for an octopus that isn't CGI so it's inflated and looks really cheap. I think that could possibly get better with a larger budget With more viewership or if they already have the budget from the other series then they need to up their prop game. Watch this without the expectation that it is SVU and just a brand new show and I think you'll have the same outlook as I did.
