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 character of Detective Robert Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) is based on the popular fictional character of Sherlock Holmes, but instead of relying upon physical evidence like Holmes, Goren focuses on psychology to identify the perpetrators, whom he often draws into confessing or yielding condemning evidence. Goren also works with a John Watson like partner in Detective Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe) and works for Inspector Lestrade type commanding officers Captain James Deakins (Jamey Sheridan) and Captain Danny Ross (Eric Bogosian) The character of Nicole Wallace (Olivia d'Abo) is a direct attempt to play on the part of Sherlock Holmes' female antagonist Irene Adler, also known as "The Woman". Wallace is employed as a "Professor of Literature" during her first appearance, which could be a parallel to Holmes' nemesis Professor Moriarty. 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.
