quirks mode: detective robert goren entertains

Rakka has gotten me hooked on Law and Order: Criminal Intent. It's kind of embarrassing. I always thought the L&Os were sort of cliffs notes for cop movies. I still think that, but I don't really care. Once I realized that you're not supposed to watch it for the plot it got much better.

It's really all about Vincent D'Onofrio's character. The tweaky, quirky detective with the funny mannerisms. He's really good at it. It's almost like he's a realistic Monk. There's just something fun about watching it.

The rest of the cast are really good too, don't get me wrong. Kathryn Erbe compliments him perfectly. But she's sort of the Abbott to his Costello. And as important as the straight man is, you always remember the ham.
