As you may or may not know by now, LAW AND ORDER: Criminal Intent has aired its final new episode for the forseeable future or maybe even forever. Not enough vampires I guess. But for those of you who started with Goren and Eames in the beginning and lasted through this eight episode truncated tenth and seemingly final season, you were brought full circle through the Robert Goren and Alex Eames that we grew to love througout their years on the show. Goren had lost weight and the stories got back to where the cases were the star and the detectives were vehicles to outwit the bad guys. Back to the Holmes and Watson of the early days. One of my favorite episodes was when Eames was kidnapped by the daughter of Goren's mentor so she could get her father's affection. For all of the times Eames backed Bobby's play, this was the one time he was allowed to protect her. And he did with a vengeance. I hope this season comes to DVD soon as I would certainly buy it. As it was, I bought it through Amazon On Demand video with a season's pass. Worth every penny. And the touch of Julia Ormand as a cop shrink was inspired both in the idea and the casting.

Goren and Eames need to come back from time to time, (if not full time.) Perhaps guest star on SVU or somewhere. Their craft is unparalleled. The stories right from the first year drawer of excellence. Dick Wolf got it rtight one more time. If there is room for two NCIS shows and a bazillion alien/vampire/invasion shows not to mention the real hosuewives of nowhere america, then there must be an hour a week for TV excellence.

While I am a huge Goren and Eames fan, I was a little disappointed that there was little to no reference to the last episode in which Goren was fired and Eames left the department. This episode acted like it was just another day at Major Case. There was a little reference in the opening scene welcoming them back but that was it. And who is this new captain? What's his background? I truly miss Captain Deakins as he was my favorite captain for this version of Law and Order.

Having said that, this was such a relief after having to live through season 9 which was just awful. Truly I am surprised that this Law and Order was renewed. This episode goes back to the earlier days of Criminal Intent and showcases D'Onofrios talent at shaping the case as Bobby Goren. It's also great to have partners who actually work with each other which wasn't happening at all last season. I am very happy to have this duo back even if its just for 10 episodes.

Season 9 was so bad that it may go down in tv history as one of the all time tv worsts. If Razzies are given for tv, season 9 should win with its changed cast. It was thus just so wonderful to watch season ten in this opening episode where goren and eames are not doing anything different from what they did on season one. At one time I may have criticized them for not being more daring and trying something different. Not anymore. All I can say is, welcome back, guys. You were sorely missed.

Let me also congratulate jay mohre who opens season ten as a real creep of a fashion designer who is also raging through New York in coke fueled wanna be creative moments. He has always been good at this creepy, villainous role and he does not disappoint here. I am not giving anything way because saying this does NOT in any way indicate he is the murderer. He is, however, a real bad guy. Mohre is a former stand up comic and they all excel at portraying villains.

There is one moment where Goren plays a gay dress designer over the phone to set up a fashion appointment. You would never know it is the same guy by his voice change. It is hilarious.

I was so happy to hear that Goren and Eames are back. I wish this series with these two would go on forever, but I will take what I can get. I was so saddened to hear about their premature departure.

As always D'onorfre and his partner does an outstanding job. As a loyal fan of law/order, Criminal Intent, this episode couldnt get any better. i am still not sure why they took this off the local networks. They can be seen on various stations, LOGO, TNT, and other channels at various times..

I have been watching this show for many, many years and I just love it! This season was no exception. I enjoyed seeing more of Goren, who made the show, really. I wish we would have seen a little more of what the future held for the stars Goren and Eames at the end, but I am pleased with it. I think they did the best they could.

Dectective Gorin and Eames come back together and battle evil on these Mean Streets. In my opinion this is the best of all Law and Order spinoffs. I just love it when Detective Gorin tels his suspects to ' sit down and shut up".
The best. Did not disappoint.

Well, I didn't really grasp this show when it was on television: couldn't follow it on my small TV set. My computer screen is much larger. This is an extraordinary program: seems so realistic, bringing you into various "worlds" in New York City. Sometimes the things that occur are "over the top." Yet one rarely is offended because what happens DERIVES FROM THE INNER BEING OF THE CHARACTERS, however strange these characters may be. Things move very quickly, yet there is an inner logic. My thought upon beginning to watch this recently was that the show is TOO GOOD for television (the mass audience). Shows what human beings can do if they really make an effort to create something excellent and profound.

At the core of what makes the show great is that D'Onofrio & Erbe to not make unctuous moral judgments. They certain don't approve of the "evil" qualities of the characters that commit crime. But they reflect on peoples' flaws--react to them--without fatuous condemnation. They deeply OBSERVE what is going on, and their responses to the criminals help us to understand them.

By far the best of all the Law & Order series. Goren and Eames are brilliant.
