Gone Too Soon,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Law & Order: Criminal Intent Season 10 (Amazon Instant Video)
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.

I could not agree more. Law and order Ci continuously shocked and surprised me with their cases and how each one was as unique to the other. Compared to NCIS whose episodes are basically carbon copies of one another.

Hopefully they will bring either Goren or Eames for a guest shot on SVU. I like NCIS and NCIS: LA. But Robert Goren and Alex Eames are special. And the guest stars...Rita Moreno, Jay O. Saunders, Jamey Sheridan, Chris Noth etc. Don't get stars like that on Grey's anatomy.

I agree about somehow having Goren and Eames on SVU and maybe have them every other week as they used to do for a while when Chris Noth and "Wheeler" played on CI. Maybe they want out too but they were one of the best teams ever in a crime series. The finale was okay, rather sad for me to see but I was glad Eames was the one to tell Goren he was done though ... that moving departure they had is what we all needed who loved this pair of actors. I loved the end too where Alex put in her badge and gun, not wanting that new job that Ross had (who sadly got knocked off in the series.) Last, it seemed to leave a possible comeback too for Goren and Eames to be together somehow, they obviously could not go on by themselves...there was one show of SVU I saw recently where Eames plays a briefer role (just one appearance I think) and she mentions Bobby Goren to Mariska Hargitay in this great scene of them talking over coffee, where Alex says something about she just helping SVU out and "not sure what is up with Bobby yet."

Season 10 (as well as all other CI seasons) is already on DVD, just so you know. :-) Great review.
