Goofs

The two detectives are discussing the word "yar" and correctly refer to a quote by Tracy Lord (Katherine Hepburn) in Philadelphia Story; however the line was directed at George Kittredge (John Howard), not Macaulay Connor (James Stewart). "Yar" is used to describe a boat or ship in very good condition. See more »

Dr. Mengele's protégé
18 October 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dallas Roberts has given us some truly creepy characters on the big and small screen in the past several years. None more so than Dr. Abel Hazard of this Criminal Intent episode.

After uniform officers find a man dressed in just a hospital gown in Central Park the case goes to Jeff Goldblum at Major Case. A little research shows that this man's injuries and that of his dead wife establish a pattern not previously known.

What a pattern it is too. The perpetrator is a psychologist played by Dallas Roberts whose family were lost in the holocaust. Which has convinced him that human beings are a worthless selfish lot and he's developed certain experiments to prove his theory. Not unlike those that Dr. Mengele performed. Wait till you see where Roberts finds his subjects for experimentation.

A family holocaust survivor who thinks his family's suffering has earned him the right to be another Mengele. What could be more weird than that?
