Oh man, what an episode!!!
31 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The summary says it all. I just watched this episode and it blew me away!! I haven't seen every episode of Criminal Intent, but out of the ones I've seen, this is THE BEST!! If Vincent D'Onofrio doesn't win an Emmy or Golden Globe or any kind of award for this show, then the award committees have a few screws loose. I urge everyone who watches this show to push for Vinnie to win an award, or for the show to win an award for that matter. It's one of the 5 best shows on cable TV!! Can't wait for the other DVDs to come out as well. I also can't wait for season 8 to air on USA this November. With Goren's life now in shambles, how will he cope with his job? And with Chris Noth/Mike Logan no longer on the show, I'm eager to see what Jeff Goldblum's character adds to the show.
