|Law and Order: Criminal Intent|
|Thursday, 10 October 2013 22:26|
Criminal Intent follows a division of the New York City Police Department, the "Major Case Squad". The Major Case Squad investigates high-profile cases (in most cases murder) such as those involving VIPs, local government officials and employees, the financial industry, and the art world.
Vincent D'Onofrio stars as Det. Robert Goren, an exceptionally bright homicide investigator with well-honed instincts that match up favorably with his criminal quarry. Likewise, his partner, Det. Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe), brings an independence and stylish edge to her work that meshes well in tandem with Goren.
Unlike the other shows in the Law & Order franchise, Criminal Intent involves the criminal justice system from the criminal's point of view. The series pays attention to the actions and motives of the criminals, rather than focusing exclusively on the police and prosecutions. Unlike other Law & Order series, most Criminal Intent episodes end in confessions rather than continuing to the trial phase.
