I thought the season premiere was excellent. Yes, Benson and Stabler were a great duo, however for me there have always been other characters and other parts of the show I've enjoyed. Meloni left the show to do movies. Good for him and I hope he succeeds. I don't think it is fair for people to keep bashing on the show because he left. I'm giving new show runner Warren Leight and his new writing team a chance and one episode in, I like what I see. Love having Alex Cabot back and Casey Novak coming back. And I like the ensemble feel rather than just the tandems.
