36 Chambers – The Legendary Journeys: Execution to the max!

Top thirty crime procedurals, #10: Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Filed under: Our Favorites, Television and/or Movies — Tony Demchak @ 8:13 am

IMDB link.

Basic premise: Insane criminals foiled by slightly less insane detective.

Why it’s here: Vincent d’Onofrio. He is absolutely phenomenal and his character makes the entire show work. When they introduce Jeff Goldblum in a later season, there’s almost too much awesome for one TV screen. Props to Olivia d’Abo, who plays his mortal nemesis, Nicole Wallace.

Why it isn’t higher: It’s already in the top 10, what more do you want? In all seriousness, if d’Onofrio and Goldblum were great, the supporting cast fell just the tiniest bit short. I also don’t like the whole “maybe d’Onofrio is so crazy because he’s secretly the criminal” line that they push in just one too many episodes.

  1. I fully agree. VDO was the soul of the show. The best forever.
