Don't be fooled by the cover which is printed in English and Dutch. The product description is accurate for English being the language used.
Viewing with French selected as the language...
When you first view the discs, you have the option of French or Dutch as the language preferences. If you select French, then the dialogue of the episodes is dubbed over in French and you have the option of French subtitles too. No English is available.
Viewing with Dutch selected as the language...
If you select Dutch, then the dialogue is the original English dialogue from the shows and you have the option of Dutch subtitles (which you can disable). The episode selection/play all episodes menus are also in Dutch, but it's not that difficult to work out which button to press.
Even when viewing with the Dutch subtitles off, there are some occasions where they still pop up (in French), for example when there is a sign or menu on screen, however this doesn't ruin the viewing.
The opening credits with the music are in English. The other opening credits where all the other actors/directors/producers etc are shown and the closing credits are all in French.
This disc set DOES include the episode "The Glory That Was", which due to its controversial story about the Olympics selection for Rio, is not available on the Region 1 discs from the USA and is also no longer available for downloading. So you do get the complete set of episodes.
For a collector and fan of Criminal Intent, this is your best way to get all the episodes, as long as you don't mind having to do a bit of language selection and the occasional French subtitle. A big thumbs up for this product

Previous to buying this Dvd, I had read the reviews regarding Jeff Goldblum and the reviews had not been very favourable regarding his acting skills and the actual scripts. I was not sure what to expect. I must say I enjoyed this much more than anticipated. I enjoyed Goldblums Portrayal of his character. I just love Goren and Eames regardless.
