Law and Order: Criminal Intent

- Vincent Donofrio Carries This Compelling Television Show
"Character Robert Goren is the lynchpin to this gripping detective drama"
by Craig Kohler, Associated Content, 5.21.07

Recently rumored to be leaving the show, Vincent Donofrio is (fortunately) now slated to stay on for future seasons of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Why is this so significant? Simply put: the show revolves around his brilliantly developed character: Robert Goren. Donofrio brings his big-screen movie experience to this television show, elevating it well above the average American cop or detective drama. Even people who are not fans of the genre should give the series a try, solely based on the strength of Donofrio's main character.

Donofrio's character on Law and Order: Criminal Intent represents a complex mixture of tortured genius and brilliant sleuth. He is at once able to slip inside the minds of criminals and profile them to the point where he can break them psychologically and, often, cause them to confess. The most gripping moments of Law and Order: CI inevitably involve Donofrio. These frequently feature the Goren character's realizations or edge-of-your-seat interviews with suspects. However, equally often, such intense scenes reflect his failures or self-doubt. The show's other characters are at their best when they play off of Donofrio, supporting, questioning or even undermining the character of Robert Goren.

LO:CI "For Your Consideration" Emmy DVD

Correction 5/18: This is "For Your Consideration" DVD - not nomination. Thanks to Geoff and Animaltalker for the listing of "For Your Consideration" episodes/actors from the Wolf Family - all 3 L&O's.

Update 5.25.07 - Animaltalker has provided an updated "For Your Consideration" listing which includes LO:CI guest actors, Roy Scheider and Tony Goldwyn.
Another "For Your Consideration" Emmy nomination DVD for an episode of Criminal Intent just showed up on Ebay. Apparently Doris Roberts was nominated for "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series" for her role in "Privilege".

Thank you Linda S.

"Endgame" review

by Todd Thatcher,

Wow. Hands down, this was the best episode of the season, and it certainly ranks among the top outings to date. The craftsmanship was just so far superior to what most crime dramas offer today — particularly in the way Killer Scheider’s death row countdown dovetailed with the deathwatch over Goren’s cancer-stricken mother.

I loved the whole format of this episode, the way we worked backwards to slowly unearth decades of brutal crimes and long-buried bodies. And it was made all the more disturbing by Roy Scheider’s chilling portrayal of a serial killer delighting in his murderous reminiscences, lovingly flipping through his scrapbooks of victims like they were cherished family albums. More.
