All 22 episodes from season 1 of the US drama series. The detectives of the NYPD's Major Case Squad pursue New York City's worst criminal offenders and these episodes follow the Squad as they investigate a major jewellery heist, the deaths of a museum curator and an art authenticator, and the kidnapping of an executive's wife and his daughters. Episodes are: 'One', 'Art', 'Smothered', 'The Faithful', 'Jones', 'The Extra Man', 'Poison', 'The Pardoner's Tale', 'The Good Doctor', 'Enemy Within', 'The Third Horseman', 'Crazy', 'The Insider', 'Homo Homini Lupus', 'Semi-professional', 'Phantom', 'Seizure', 'Yesterday', 'Maledictus', 'Badge', 'Faith' and 'Tuxedo Hill'.
This third Law and Order series tweaks the well known format of the original show even further than Special Victims Unit. Starring Vincent D'Onofrio, whose incredible performance is the heart of the series, as Detective Robert Goren, Criminal Intent now focuses on the criminals as much as the investigators, allowing the viewer to see the planning and execution of a crime as Goren and his team try to crack the case. This collection contains the entire first series of the show.

Yes, he is annoying at times with his mr-know-it-all act and yes, we can't really believe that such a gifted cop could really exist!
I also wish that Erbe played a larger part in solving the cases, it's very much a the-guy-has-the-brains-the-woman-plods-along type of show!
However it is a very good series and I'm really waiting for the release of the 2nd season!
He does have a female partner who is very good too, played by Catherine Erbe, though she doesn't often get much of a chance to shine. The producers obviously realised what a coup they got with Vincent D'Onofrio signing on, and the focus is certainly on him.
This first series was very good, the story's weren't too 'same-y', and were consistently mind-boggling and sometimes disturbing, but you feel safe in the hands of Bobby Goren....
It is pointless to compare all of the different strands of the Law and Order family because they are all so different. Each one has many merits.
L&O Criminal Intent is a good old fashioned detective show where you're actually kept guessing. Even if you know who did it, the fun is figuring out how they're going to get caught. It is never obvious or predictable. I enjoy this show because it has such a strong pair of main characters. Vincent D'Onofrio is simply superb in his portrayal of the highly intelligent Detective Goren, and this is perfectly balanced by Kathryn Erbe's understated yet strong female partner Detective Eames. These two characters are believable and engaging, and often, very entertaining. Eames frequently taking a back seat to Goren's unique investigative methods and detection processes, but always playing an important role. She provides the no-nonsense traditional cop to balance Goren's off-the-wall approach. Eames focussing a little more on the evidence based method of solving a crime, where as Goren's acute attention to detail, and insight in to human behaviour leads him toward the psychological motives behind the crime. The supporting cast is also excellent. Courtney B. Vance is brilliantly believable as smart and dapper ADA Carver.
The show isn't flashy or sensationalist, but engaging and thought provoking. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a genuinely great detective mysteries. The stories and characters are so multi-faceted that it is nearly impossible to anticipate the reasons why they are caught and the clever methods used to catch the criminals. This means you can watch the episodes over and over and rarely remember the way the story develops. The show definitely benefits from not being swamped down by tedious court room scenes as so many other crime shows are. The joy of this show is following the investigation, and trying to anticipate the way Goren and Eames are finally going to catch their man.
This edition also features a Bonus - "The Beginning" : A 20 minute programme containing interviews with creator Dick Wolf, producer Rene Balcer, and the actors Jamey Sheridan, Kathryn Erbe and Vincent D'Onofrio. This short bonus programme gives a really fascinating insight in to the making of the show, the concept, and the way the actors approach their roles. Hearing the actors talking about their characters is particularly interesting, and makes this box set a definite "must have" for real Criminal Intent fans.
