Trivia

Towards the end of the fifth season, Executive Producer Dick Wolf decided not to renew Chris Noth's contract citing that the interaction between Logan and the similarly jaded Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) lacked enough dramatic contrast. Viewers and critics were shocked at the dismissal of the most popular and only original remaining cast member at that time. Years later, Noth convinced Wolf to produce Exiled (1998) to wrap up the story of Mike Logan, which Noth felt had been prematurely extinguished on the show. See more »

Goofs

Upon finding a raincoat the suspect had been wearing, Detective Briscoe first picks it up without wearing gloves, then pulls a gun out of the pocket again without wearing gloves. This would destroy any forensic evidence on the items. See more »

A hero to my dad
10 July 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When Chris Noth came back in Criminal Intent after leaving Law And Order prime Kathryn Erbe was wont to remark that what he did here made him a hero in the eyes of her dad. That is punch out a city councilman and one with a big mouth. There've been many a politician I'd like to have punched out including some right now.

That's what he does here to Daniel Hugh-Kelly who represents Canarsie in Brooklyn but is looking for greener pastures and a more accepting constituency in Staten Island, but is being blocked by one of his colleagues, an openly gay one whom Kelly shoots.

For a lot of reasons, mainly some involving the closet Sam Waterston and Jill Hennessy can't close this one. Unlike the Harvey Milk case on which this is clearly based, justice is denied the Milk like victim. One of the reasons are some less than discreet remarks Detective Mike Logan made in a homophobic past. Noth has to own up to them on the stand and the comparison with the right wing homophobic Kelly leaves him uncomfortable and unhappy.

In New York City one does not switch constituencies the way Kelly is trying. The writers were very careless on that point. Robs Noth's first farewell to the Law And Order franchise of its effectiveness.
