Did You Know?

In what looks to be a likely ad lib, Goren drops an armload of folders and carries on through the scene, delivering his lines while Captain Deakins just grins at Eames amused by it all.See more »
Miscellaneous: Coffee cans that had been buried in the ground for a long period of time would not show up on thermal imaging camera. The thermal camera senses the difference in temperatures. Only cans that had just recently been buried might show up. And only if they weren't buried that deep. He had a large number of cans that all had been buried a long time. They could not have imaged all the cans buried.See more »

What was the favor that the perp requested of Goren at the end of the episode? There didn't seem to be any reference to it in the last line.

Characters Are Not Who They Seem To Be At First, 17 June 2008
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Stealing silverware doesn't sound too bad a crime, at least one to warrant a TV episode on it, but it does in this case. It leads indirectly to murder. Thrown into the mix of this story is an expert cat burglar, so good at stealing silverware he can taunt the police; and a chain of women helping him, the last one throwing a major twist in the story.

This story starts slowly and one could get bored with all the "appraisal" talk and other technical jargon, but stay with it because it gets better and better. The last third is very good and ties together a pretty complex story with a number of subplots. Kudos to all the actors who play those not-exactly-what-they-seem characters and do an excellent job with them.

Not wanting to give away a couple of the surprises, I'll just say the episode turned out much better than I first thought with the major characters not being what they seem to be. Usually, "Criminal Intent" is a thinking person's show and this episode is no exception.

Note: I'm aware, even though I watch these shows in order that lead actor Vincent D'Onofrio started taking time off from this show either this year or next year, so it got my attention when "Det. Goren" started unraveling a tiny bit in this episode. Is that the forerunner of things to come as an excuse to give his character time off down the road?
