finally seeing Jeff Goldlum episodes [May. 26th, 2012|01:16 pm]
L&O: Criminal Intent Fans


Like many viewers, I've seen far more CI episodes in syndication over the past couple of years than while it was in its prime. Lately, I'm really enjoying the later seasons that brought in Jeff Goldblum as Detective Nichols, providing a certain nerdy edge to one's notion of what a major case officer can be like. These episodes from the last season seem to be showing up on WGN, the Chicago super station that's among the four or five cable sources that enable one to find at least one episode of a Law & Order franchise showing at almost any time of the day or night, 24/7.

I caught a few of these eps when they first ran here in Canada and surprised myself by enjoying them as much as I did. Being a huge Goren fan and a huge Logan fan meant I wasn't exactly inclined to do so. JG eps are currently running late night on a small Toronto station and I've caught a couple that I missed first time around and enjoyed them as well. As you say, he brought a different aspect to the squad, which was fun to watch.

In my visits to Canada, I'm always taken aback that TV programming there isn't the same as in the US, although it makes perfect sense. I hope you'll find more outlets!

FYI, it's an interesting tidbit that Jeff Goldblum for awhile dated a very young guest star, Tania Raymonde, from the "Revolution" episode of Season 8.

Very, very different. The Canadian over the air stations even make extra cuts to show to put more commercials in. That's why I always try to watch US series on the originating network. With the latter seasons of L&O:CI that wasn't an option because I no longer pay for tv. Still we have lots of all the L&O's on tv free over the air here. CI is on several times every day on several different channels so no complaints on my part, honest.

That is an interesting tidbit. ;-)
