Goofs

When Detective Logan and Detective Wheeler are questioning the doctor who wrote the prescription for the Methadone, the doctor said he called it in to a pharmacy. Since Methadone is a Schedule II narcotic, it cannot be called into a pharmacy, the patient would need to bring in the hard copy of the prescription and it has to be written on a security blank.

Bizarre episode
19 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Peter Bogdanovich makes his second of two appearances as a Hugh Hefner type character on Criminal Intent. The plot is based on the Anna Nichole Smith saga for which you would have had to have lived in a cave to miss the connection.

Anna was one of those characters the media totally creates, she may very well have been our first celebrity bimbo. Kristy Swanson plays the Anna like character who first sees her son die and then she's killed off.

Of course it's the same perpetrator who uses the same method of execution. There's method in the madness, but also the perpetrator is most disturbed.

This episode has some of the most outrageous and bizarre characters ever on a CI show. My favorites are those two spinster sisters, daughters of Swanson's husband by her first marriage. Borrowed straight from those pixalated sisters in Mr. Deeds Goes To Town.
