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.

Did You Know?
When the detectives want to "bring in" or "pick up" suspects witnesses for questioning, they are usually located instantly. That might work if they had a consistent schedule they followed faithfully every day, but few people do that. Even with the invention and advancements of GPS and smartphones in later seasons that would make it easier to locate suspects, it should not be as simple as is shown in the series. Especially as many of the people they are looking for are homeless or otherwise itinerant, and even they don't know where they will be tomorrow. See more
