Goofs

When Detective Logan and Detective Wheeler are questioning the doctor who wrote the prescription for the Methadone, the doctor said he called it in to a pharmacy. Since Methadone is a Schedule II narcotic, it cannot be called into a pharmacy, the patient would need to bring in the hard copy of the prescription and it has to be written on a security blank.

Anna Nicole Revisited
10 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It seems like a lot of the "Law & Order Criminal Intent" Season Six shows are takeoffs on famous headlines that most of us saw several months before these CI shows are aired. I am speaking of people like John Mark Karr who was accused of killing Jon Benet Ramsey or Lisa Nowak, the astronaut who drove non-stop to Florida wearing diapers (to save time) to confront her boyfriend's lover, or the young couple who staged a fake cyber kidnapping, etc.

This story? Who doesn't know about the famous big bosomed-former stripper blonde with little talent but a lot of fame after marrying a billionaire four times her age? The fame went out-of-control when she and her family did the same, all the while the tabloid press eating it up.

Her son then dies tragically while filming a "reality show," an apparent bad mixture of drugs. His famous mom has just had a baby. Their house is all in pink. Gosh, this is a hard one to figure out: this is a wild stab but could it be Anna Nicole Smith? Anyway, it's up to "Detective Mike Logan" (Chris Noth) and partner "Det. Megan Wheeler" (Julianne Nicholson) to find out if it is suicide or murder. If it was murder, who wanted "Justin," the son of famous "Lorelai Mailer" (Kristy Swanson) dead?

Later in the show, poor "Loelai" is found dead and now the cops have two possible murders to solve. The ending is quite interesting and involves more than one person.
