Did You Know?


When Goren, Eames, Anna and Jonas Slaughter are in the Slaughter's study after Jonas confessed to Anna, the video playback that Goren shows correctly displays the mirrored image from the video camera that was pointed to a mirror in the room. However, the playback image should also show the video camera too as it would also be visible in the image it takes of the mirror. See more »

Unfolds like a Greek tragedy
3 May 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The performance of Malcolm McDowell as a Rupert Murdoch like media tycoon highlights this particular Criminal Intent episode. The whole thing unfolds like a Greek tragedy with three fatalities during the course of the show.

Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe are called in to investigate the death of one of Malcolm McDowell's sons. He's killed and the body so positioned as to cause maximum embarrassing scandal when discovered. Since McDowell specializes in such things some would consider it poetic justice.

What's going on here is a power play within the family. The deceased was the favored and heir apparent. McDowell has a second son Matthew Morrison who is never allowed to forget he's number 2. There's also an Asian trophy wife played Cindy Cheung with an infant child as well.

In fact the wrong suspect is arrested, but the truth comes out in a shattering climax. Not to be missed.
