Like the bards of old
27 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm sorry that Criminal Intent reached the end of its run before Jeff Goldblum and his character of Detective Zach Nichols. In his own way, the son of a psychiatrist with that kind of training and background he was as quirky as Vincent D'Onofrio in his own way.

Two murders occur in this episode. The first was of Christina Brucato girl friend and girl Friday of Will Chase a poet. Now that's usually not a gig that pays much money unless you get a patron. Chase publishes a poetry anthology magazine and it's described as the kind of a publication that people buy for their coffee tables so they appear intellectual. Like the bards of old Chase needs wealthy patrons and he's not picky about what means he uses to get patrons.

But then he winds up murdered and Goldblum and Julianne Nicholson have to go in a whole different direction.

All I'll say is that the solution lies in Chase's past and a past crime never really dealt with.
