This was an excellent drama series about murder investigations and prosecutions. The acting is very good and the stories are interesting. Each episode is about 45 minutes. This DVD set has 22 episodes that originally aired during the 2007/2008 season. It is too bad that this series went off the air in 2011 because it was very well-written and quite suspenseful.

HASH(0x9ae94168) out of 5 stars S7 = Heaven March 28 2012
By Ann - Published on
Format: DVD
Couldn't wait for the DVDs, so got a legal download. I will order these DVDs as well to add to my 1-6 collection. S7, what can I say? Some may disagree, but I'm really into it. On a shallow note, I find Goren compellingly attractive when he's suffering from personal demons which even affect his appearance and the way he performs the job. And suffer he does.

The key 'Goren/Eames' character development episodes are Amends, Untethered, Purgatory and Frame. I have watched them umpteen times, and never find them less than mesmerizing. Seriously, has there been another actor as committed and original as him on network TV? In between those dramatic ones are some more great episodes (Smile, Kissinger, Depths, the magic tricks in 'Vanishing Act'). Even the less-than-stellar ones still have many scenes worth watching. It is heartbreaking indeed to watch the post-Purgatory tension between the partners. I love watching Erbe/Eames in S7.

As for the Logan episodes, we get a temporary partner 'Falacci' for the first few episodes. Some viewers will love her, and others less so. Personally, I find her a little grating and unrealistic, but I know many do appreciate Alicia Witt's performance. She's better than Bishop at least! The Logan/Falacci episode 'Senseless' is certainly one of the most memorable of the entire S7. 'Last Rites' also a highlight, and it farewells the long-running character of Mike Logan. It left me hoping for something good for his future- too bad he had to leave the show.

Although purists will prefer seasons 1-4 (and 5?), I find the later seasons more emotionally satisfying. If I had to objectively review, of course I won't deny that the earlier seasons are of a much higher quality (especially the writing) and that Goren is quite a different, more quirky and less tortured man. However, despite its unevenness, the show stayed interesting for me even when it moved to USA. This is due to Vincent's commitment to taking the character of Goren to new places. I simply can't take my eyes off the screen when he fills it.

HASH(0x9ae94570) out of 5 stars Criminal Intent's First USA Season July 23 2012
By Coffee Addicted Writer (Billy) - Published on
Format: DVD
I first started watching Law & Order Criminal Intent in the spring of 2007 when USA use to have nightly mini-marathons of CI and SVU. The series first aired on NBC on September 30, 2001 until May 21, 2007, when it moved to its sister network USA in the fall of 2007 until it finally ended its run on June 26, 2011. NBCUniversal have been extremely slow about releasing Law & Order: CI's ten year run to DVD. Luckily for us fans, Shout! Factory bought the DVD rights, releasing season 7 exactly one year to the date that the series ended.

Just like the previous few seasons, every other episode is split between the detective combo of Goren/Eames and Logan/Wheeler. Actually, Megan Wheeler (played by Julianne Nicholson, who was on maternity leave) is missing for half the season as the character went to Europe to teach a course on American Police Procedure. During this time, Mike Logan (played by Chris Noth) teams up with Detective Nola Falaccia (played by Alicia Witt).

The season starts out with Amends, in which Eames' (played by Kathryn Erbe) late husband's partner is murdered, and Goren must help her find the killer. My favorite episode is Untethered, where Goren (played by Vincent D'Onofrio) goes undercover in a psychiatric ward to help his nephew and must confront his own demons. The season ends with Frame, where Goren's brother is murdered, and the prime suspect could be Goren's nemesis, Nicole Wallace.

The episodes on the five discs are:

Disc One: Amends; Seeds; Smile; and Lonelyville.

Disc Two: Depths; Courtship; Self-Made; and Offense.

Disc Three: Untethered; Senseless: Purgatory; and Contract.

Disc Four: Betrayed; Assassin; Please Note We Are No Longer Accepting Letters of Recommendation From Henry Kissinger; Reunion; and Vanishing Act.

Disc Five: Ten Count; Legacy; Neighborhood Watch; Last Rites; and Frame.

Unlike the box sets of seasons, 4-6, season seven has no box; there is just a slipcover over a typical DVD case. The DVD cover is in the same design style of the previous few seasons as is the discs' design. Season seven aired from October 7, 2007 to June 24, 2008 and not during the '08-'09 Season as stated on the cover and on each discs. Just like the previous seasons, there are no extras in this set.

Despite the '08-09' error and the lack of extras, I am glad that season 7 is finally on DVD to own.

HASH(0x9ae945e8) out of 5 stars Season Seven is riveting and just great television July 6 2012
By skhanner - Published on

Seven Seven brings with it many heart wrenching episodes for the Goren/Eames partnership. I especially loved the episode "Amends" where we see the other side to Eames. Her performance in this episode outshone everyone, including her partner whose gentleness and sensitivity was well played by D'onofrio. I wish that Eames got more roles like this to play, because she did it very well. I am impressed with the tortured, mourning uneasy self that Goren depicts, knowing that he is walking on uncertain ground in this season.
Captain Ross continues to play a fine role in this series with his wry, deadpan comments and his ability to control his team despite his height. I like him the best of all the captains for this series and believe me, that world weary turn of phrase that he is good for makes the episodes all the better.
I was never really too impressed with Mike Logan's character and his plethora of partners, but here he gets some really cracking cases to work with and the character takes off, so to speak. I don't care for the Falacci character myself and yes, she is damn irritating. Thank god she gets replaced.
All I can say is that you will not be disappointed with this season. Can't wait for Season 8!!!!!

I like Law and Order but especially enjoy this version because of Vincent. The stories are always fascinating and more involved than the regular L&O. I like the psychological aspect of the show and love it when Vincent goes head to head with another highly intelligent but psychotic criminal.

Season six didn't really feel like the show anymore. But season 7 felt different in a good way. Here we have everyone returning from season 6, except Jullianne Nicholson who was pregnant. Alicia Witt take her place for a short while in the same sense that Micheal Imporeli takes over for Jesse L. Martin in season 15 of Law & Order. Her character is described as a "hot-head," thus giving Chris Noth's Logan a chance to be the diplomat or the voice of reason. In the season opener, we see the Goren, Eames and Ross respond to the shooting of a police officer. Detective Eames' deceased husband's old partner. It gets personal as Goren outs a cop's disability and re-open's Eames' husband's murder. Most if not all the episodes were top-notch. Warren Leight has made the necessary improvements in season 7 that were needed in season 6. The one change I am not so found of was the Law & Order: Trial By Jury style opening credits and theme music that was for the USA Network airings of new Criminal Intent episodes. It's funny how season 6 was less dark with a serious opening and season 7 was more darker with a fast-paced or even upbeat opening. There are also some noticeable flaws on the Shout Factory DVD box. Dick Wolf's last name is spelled "Wolfe" despite his name showing up at least three times throughout an episode and it is mislabeled as the '08-'09 season when in fact it was the '07-'08 season. Hopefully the Shout Factory will pay more attention to future projects and avoid repeats of such mistakes. I strongly recommend that you buy this season despite the minor issues. It's definitely well-written overall and the very compact without having to resort to the annoying double-sided disk. Also this marks Chris Noth's last season as Detective Micheal Logan. Not just in Criminal Intent, but in the entire franchise.
