Storyline

This show centers on the NYPD's Major Case Squad (and the offbeat, Sherlock Holmes-like Detective Robert Goren) in its efforts to stop the worst criminal offenders in New York. It also puts a new twist to the "Law & Order" formula: now, in each episode, we see the crimes as they are planned and committed. Written by Brian Barjenbruch

Vincent D'Onofrio A Great TV Detective!!
7 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw Vincent D'Onofrio portraying a GIANT COCKROACH (Men In Black) I thought to myself...wow that's an interesting concept!! A human being turned into an alien bug. But imagine my surprise when I saw Vincent's face, for the very first time in a commercial advertising Law & Order; CI. I just knew I had to see how a "cockroach" character could be taken seriously as a N.Y. crime detective. What a pleasant surprise! I fell head-over-heels in love with Mr. D'Onofrio's TV detective character. He's a brilliant combination of Sherlock Holmes and Columbo!! Frankly, he's the ONLY REASON I watch LOCI.

Would you believe, I've programmed my satellite to every station that airs LOCI. That means I can watch at least 3 episodes per evening. And on Sundays, I'm able to view at least 5 episodes of LOCI. If they ever considered reducing Vincent's appearances, I'll be greatl disappointed, why??? Every fan of LOCI knows that without Mr. D'Onofrio there really wouldn't be any need in watching the show!!

We believe that he also deserves to win an Emmy before the show's final curtain (?)

**Footnote: The comments above were posted several years ago. Unfortunately since then, I've changed my mind. The Detective Robert Goren of Seasons: 1 - 4, no longer exists. He's a mere shadow of his former glorious self, he has now faded into the background. Could it be the absence of Rene Balcer?? After all, it was Rene who created Criminal Intent, where he also served as exec producer and showrunner. The NBC drama was inspired by Dr. Park Dietz, a high profile forensic psychiatrist. Vincent D'Onofrio's character Detective Goren is loosely based on Dietz. I once enjoyed Law & Order:CI, but no more. And I think it's much too late for Mr. Leight to go back and capture what made this show what it was from the beginning! Great Entertainment.
