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

When Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio joined the cast in season nine, her character was going to be named Sarah Brooks. At the last minute, producers decided to change it to Zoe Callas. See more »

Goofs

The detectives sometimes pick up a weapon with a handkerchief or by inserting a pencil in the barrel. In real life, the handkerchief might contaminate possible DNA evidence, and the pencil would destroy microscopic markings inside the barrel, making it difficult to match the weapon to slugs retrieved from a victim's body or a crime scene. Instead, one expert recommends holding a weapon in place with gloved fingertips and sliding a thin, stiff sheet of plastic beneath it. See more »

Unrealistic, but amazing, series!
19 April 2003 | by koijamasSee all my reviews

Did you ever notice that Det. Robert Goren(Vincent D'Onofrio) uses the most unconventional methods available? In reality, barely any of the cases given and solved by the two perfectly competent, zealous detectives, would be won in court. As in every Law & Order series, aside from Crime & Punishment, which was taken directly from real life courtrooms, those being interrogated seem to forget about their right to a lawyer (or they're completely oblivious to their legal advice). Although it's fun to play detective along with the television, as you're supposed to in this particular series, it all seems so crazy compared to the actual process. In contrast to my previous comments, I love the show. It's fiction and I accept it as that. The two, main characters, being Erbe's Det. Eames and D'Onofrio's Det. Goren, are fun and witty. The writers somehow manage to create ongoing subplots, especially involving Goren's familial life. As in other crime dramas, it keeps you thinking but always has that twist that makes you slap your forehead at the end. It has its ups and downs, but I believe it to be a great addition to Dick Wolf's franchise.
