Did You Know?


Detective Alexandra Eames says she likes to watch her partner squash bugs. Her partner, Detective Robert Goren, is played by Vincent D'Onofrio and he played Edgar/The Bug in Men in Black. See more »


The video of Jonas confessing to Anna would have never been admissible as evidence. Since Jonas and Anna were married anything they said in private to each other would be protected by spousal privilege, so any recording made of their conversation would be privileged as well. Anna could have testified to what Jonas said if she wanted, but the video could not be shown to the jury. See more »


Detective Alexandra Eames: [referring to a dead body in latex] He died with his freak on.

Unfolds like a Greek tragedy
3 May 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The performance of Malcolm McDowell as a Rupert Murdoch like media tycoon highlights this particular Criminal Intent episode. The whole thing unfolds like a Greek tragedy with three fatalities during the course of the show.

Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe are called in to investigate the death of one of Malcolm McDowell's sons. He's killed and the body so positioned as to cause maximum embarrassing scandal when discovered. Since McDowell specializes in such things some would consider it poetic justice.

What's going on here is a power play within the family. The deceased was the favored and heir apparent. McDowell has a second son Matthew Morrison who is never allowed to forget he's number 2. There's also an Asian trophy wife played Cindy Cheung with an infant child as well.

In fact the wrong suspect is arrested, but the truth comes out in a shattering climax. Not to be missed.
