Storyline

This show centers on the NYPD's Major Case Squad (and the offbeat, Sherlock Holmes-like Detective Robert Goren) in its efforts to stop the worst criminal offenders in New York. It also puts a new twist to the "Law & Order" formula: now, in each episode, we see the crimes as they are planned and committed. Written by Brian Barjenbruch

Trivia

The following statement appears at the beginning of each episode: "In New York City's war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the detectives of the Major Case Squad. These are their stories." This is the only Law & Order series where the opening statement does not begin with the words "In the criminal justice system..." See more »

Goofs

Several of the cases shown would clearly be under the purview of the NY State Police or even the FBI. Major Case would be limited to cases which were committed inside the city of New York. See more »

Intelligent and fun
12 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I am a long standing fan of Law and Order,the original series. I never could get into SVU, but I love CI. The intelligence of Vincent's character is wonderful and I have fun watching him "trip" the bad guys. There is humor and sarcasm that I find refreshing, it keeps the show from being too dark. I don't find this show overly violent at all. The acting and writing are top notch. Definitely my favorite series this season.
