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 »

The son of a rich magnate is killed and it looks like everyone connected with him could be the killer.
10 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I usually love watching Criminal Intent, especially detective Eames and Goren, but I just didn't understand this one. I won't stop watching though, but I'm really glad from reading the other review that I wasn't the only one who didn't understand it. The reason for the murder did not seem clear, although at every point the detectives were making discoveries. All the people seemed shady, without a single person one could sort of stick one's neck out for. The title was most apt, because the episode centred on family, flesh, and a great deal of a father's pride was in evidence. As with all the L&O Criminal Intent series, the detectives display a vast breadth of knowledge and skill in checking out relevant tips and hunches. I feel like watching it again to make sure I understand it, because I didn't.
