I like this series and most of the episodes were good with the exception of Samantha Buck who played Gorren's partner for seven episodes. I was glad that in the first episode it mentioned why Eames was going to leave the show.

I love the Law and Order series. That is one show we recommend to all of our friends. We especially like the character Vincent D' Onofrio plays.

HASH(0x9cedf564) out of 5 stars Third year -- Good and Bad Aug. 22 2004
By Adam Dukovich - Published on Amazon.com
I am a huge fan of the show and really got into it at the end of the first season, which I own on DVD. It's curious that they're releasing the third season before the second, also it's a bit disappointing, since I have to wait longer to get that set. CI's second season was addictive television: I looked forward every week to the episode to come on Sunday, to see Vincent D'Onofrio nail another clever would-be criminal mastermind. The third season was good throughout, but it had fewer flashes of greatness than its predecessor and it seemed to produce more clunkers than the other two seasons.

Some of the highlights include an episode about architects, murder, and polygamy (Undaunted Meddle), a corporate travesty to challenge Enron (Mis-Labeled), an Anti-Semitic serial killer (A Murderer Among Us), a very unhappy family (Shrink-Wrapped), and a master con artist (The Saint). There were a few more star appearances: Judd Hirsch (Ordinary People), Stephen Colbert (tv's The Daily Show), and Brent Spiner (Star Trek). On the negative side, Kathryn Erbe gave birth to her second child during the season, so we got Samantha Buck for a few episodes instead. The show, to its credit, tried new things, some of which worked (the above shows) and some that didn't (the flat F.P.S. and Mad Hops, plus an embarassingly banal D.A.W.).

All in all, the third season was weaker than the first two, but real fans will enjoy its charms. If you are among them, check it out, but if you're wondering what this whole Criminal Intent thing is about, I'd recommend holding out until the second season is released.

HASH(0x9cedf96c) out of 5 stars Good show -- but double-sided DVDs are "criminal"! March 9 2010
By Silver Age Fan - Published on Amazon.com
I discovered Law & Order: Criminal Intent a bit late -- and found it to be a pretty decent show. Goren's character is essentially a pastiche of Sherlock Holmes, Columbo, and other notable sleuths, and the episodes are pretty enjoyable if a bit uneven at times. But what is a real crime are the double-sided DVDs in this box set! Double-sided DVDs provide extra opportunities for damaged DVDs, and mandate that they should be handled much more carefully than the norm. It would have been much better to release this set on twice the amount of single-sided DVDs. The enhanced potential damage aside, single-sided DVDs would have helped in both viewer handling and disc recognition. No doubt the manufacturer saved some cents by going the cheap route with double-sided DVDs, but in the end it's the consumer who suffers -- and after he or she has paid a good buck for the product!

HASH(0x9cf6924c) out of 5 stars Great show - but where's the rest? May 12 2008
By Mike Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' is one great cop show. With a detective like Goren to surprise us every week with his skills is something to behold. Which, of course, in the real world means this series has incredible writers. Dick Wolf's 'Law & Order' franchise includes some great series - the original 'Law & Order', 'Law & Order SVU', but Criminal Intent is my favorite as I like like good old-fashioned detective, cop shows. It's rarely been done better.

However, unfortunately, this is a NBC-Universal project which means it's a Universal DVD property. For those that don't know - they are NOTORIOUS for beginning series on DVD and after a season or two, dropping them cold. No release for this series in going on two years now, it looks like another Universal casualty. Add that to classics like Dragnet (one season and out), Adam-12 (one season and out), Emergency (one and out); and even classic comedy series that deserved the best treatment: Leave It To Beaver - two seasons and no more. Universal does this time and time again and it's getting where I don't trust Universal when they begin a series release on DVD. Season Four for 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent', anyone???

HASH(0x9cedf9e4) out of 5 stars THEY ALWAYS GET THEIR MAN OR WOMAN OR CHILD Oct. 19 2006
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Vincent D'Onofrio's somewhat warped Robert Goren continues to be the glue that holds this excellent series together. Watching Vincent work, one almost feels as uncomfortable and/or jittery as his character. Aided by tightly woven scripts and uniquely orchestrated opening scenes, this series continues to provide expert dramatic acting and is vastly entertaining.

This third year has episodes unique in how they twist themselves from what you might have expected: a cop with a sleep disorder; a woman in a vegetative state; the push for canonization of a religious figure; a psychiatrist and her psychologist husband's unorthodox game playing; a Svengali-like teen who gets girls to commit murder for him. This and much more with good guest turns by actors like Claire Bloom, Judd Hirsch, Karen Sillas, John Savage, and Margaret Colin.

Kathryn Erbe adds brilliant support as Vincent's partner and the series continues to be one of the strongest of the franchise.

HASH(0x9cedfd74) out of 5 stars Goren rocks, but where's S-2? Dec 21 2005
By E. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
I'm thrilled to see a sequel to my S-1 collection, but I don't get why S3 is out before S2. But whatever - anything Vincent D'onofrio does these days is great and he's holding his own this season (2005-06) with a little help from Chris Noth, who has returned to the L&O foray in spite of his pledge to never do it again (on an old Issac Misrahi gush moment a few years back).

Unlike some other CI lovers, I have no problem blending Noth and D'onofrio - their episodes offset each other well. My only fear is that this is a way of phasing Goren and Eames out, which would be a tragic mistake. Bobby and Alex are the best detectives on TV and I would hate to lose them.

Watch these episodes, they're all great. Go Goren!
