Thank you! My prize package just arrived. Of course, I've already popped the first season one DVD in, and am happily enjoying the first episode, which I'd never seen before! Sidereel and Electric Artists are awesome.
| 01:23 EDT, 09 Jun, 2008
Absolutely love "Bobby" (Vincent D' Onofrio). I have seen a few of his other works, and have to say he is one of my favorite actors. He delves into his characters and plays his part to perfection, even down to the mannerisms. The chemistry and connection between him and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) is great to watch. My favorite episodes feature Olivia d'Abo. She really gets into his head and I loved to watch his reaction. Plus I like the way she said "Bobby".
| 01:08 EDT, 02 Jun, 2008
Bobby Goren is my favorite character on csi. He is such an interesting character, and I think he is sensitive. A big jump from being a cockroach in "Men in Black".
| 00:14 EDT, 02 Jun, 2008
Det. Goren. His mannerisms and wealth of knowledge are both excellent.
| 23:57 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Det. Carolyn Bareck because she is a typical sassy New York girl.
| 23:46 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
mike logan. he's very cool.
| 22:38 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Goren. Just his way he talks and acts is neat.
| 21:45 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Without a doubt, my favorite character is Detective Robert Goren. He is certainly unique! He has an ecclectic array of knowledge - who can remember all of that? He really digs in to get inside the criminal's head and understand the reasoning behind each criminal's actions. Thanks for the chance to win!
| 21:21 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Goren is my favorite.
| 20:07 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
My favorite character from Law & Order Criminal Intent would have to be Nicole Wallace. She is Detective Robert Goren archnemesis. She is a criminal mastermind in every sense of the word. She has escaped the clutches of the NYPD Major Case Squad 4 times. She is one criminal that does not give in to Goren's methods, and is basically an anti version of him. She is extremely smart and as clever as Goren himself. She is probably the only character in the show that can outwit him.
| 19:11 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
It's no wonder everyone loves Goren. The complexity he brings to the character leaves audiences wanting more everytime. All of the other characters on the show are just attributes to his flawless performance. I am an avid watcher and would absolutely love this gift set!
| 19:07 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Got to be Bobby Goren, because he's skewed with flaws and that makes him so much more interesting.
| 18:33 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Goren is my favorite because he does whatever it takes to get the criminal.I like watching him. ty 4 the contest! :)
| 17:16 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Detective Goren is my favorite because he is so intelligent and always outwits the criminals.
| 16:50 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
i never liked it,then i started watching a marathon over the holiday weekend&love it!!Goren is cool,he knows every weird thing!!anyway count me id really like to win!!
| 14:22 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Love the show, one of my favorites. Goran rocks
| 11:34 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Goren hands down!!
| 11:06 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Bobby Goren is the best. He is almost too intelligent for his own good. He's willing to break the rules to get the bad guy. And he has Eames to back him up.
| 09:24 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Bobby Goren! He is awesome - he amazingly knows lots of weird facts that give insight into the criminals' behavior. He is like a mental macguyver! Love him and love CI!
| 08:50 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
we love goren..he rocks :)
| 08:13 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Goren makes the show, He plays the part as well as any other lead i've watched!!!!
| 03:45 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
I Like Detective Robert Goren Because He's A Tough Cop And He Knows How To Get The Job Done When It Comes To Catching The Criminals On The Show.
| 01:03 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
I love Goren. It's fascinating how he gets into the criminals heads!
| 00:47 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
I have been watching the L&O marathon over the entire holiday weekend. I had always watched L&O SVU but I never even knew about CI. Geez...where have I been? What a show! Goren is my absolute favorite. Now that I am totally hooked, I hope they don't cancel it.
| 00:13 EDT, 01 Jun, 2008
Courtney B. Vance as A.D.A. Ron Carver. He's the most like "classic" L&O characters. I like Criminal Intent okay, and I would like to see the third season on DVD (I don't have cable or an antennae, so I don't watch much TV), but I don't like how they often give away the killer at the beginning of the episode. I like to "play along."
| 23:17 EDT, 31 May, 2008
My favorite is Bobby Goren. He always comes up with the wildest things. It is always a challenge keeping up with what he will do next.
| 22:53 EDT, 31 May, 2008
My favorite character is Detective Alexandra Eames. I like her because she seems real and I feel like I can connect with her type of personality. Thanks for the chance! I love the show!
| 20:34 EDT, 31 May, 2008
Goren because he knows what he is doing
| 15:58 EDT, 31 May, 2008
Bobby Goren is my favorite. His character exhibits that thin line between sane and insane. His brillance as a detective comes from Bobby knowing the flaws and complexity of human nature.
| 15:44 EDT, 31 May, 2008
Alexandra Eames. Intelligent, mature and methodical... the perfect foil for an eccentric central character. Her quick thinking enables her to stay on Goren's unpredictable train tracks and her stability prevents him from teetering too far off the edge. As they say, "Behind every great man is a great woman", right?
| 15:24 EDT, 31 May, 2008
Goren; he is magnificently brilliant, and a bear.
| 13:56 EDT, 31 May, 2008
My favorite is and always will be the late great Lenny. I love the way he so accurately portrayed a weathered and gentle cop. I like a lot of the others too but my heart will always be Lennys.
| 13:31 EDT, 31 May, 2008
None other than Bobby--Goren, that is. He's fascinating to watch: just the way he uses his body--twisting, turning, tilting his head--is enough to convey a series of complex emotions. And the stuttering and stammering makes me wonder: is it real, or just an act?
| 13:24 EDT, 31 May, 2008
Goren is the best. Brilliant but psychotic enough to be one step away from going over the edge.
| 03:45 EDT, 31 May, 2008
I love Eames. She's strong and sexy.
| 01:33 EDT, 31 May, 2008
| 18:39 EDT, 30 May, 2008
Ching! Ching! (Law & Order sound effects)!My fav is Detective Bobby Goren, Vincent D'Onofrio -quirky and cool!
| 14:09 EDT, 30 May, 2008
Goren is my favorite because he thinks so much like a criminal, it's eerie.
| 00:59 EDT, 30 May, 2008
I'd love to go against the majority, just to be different here, but I can't. Goren is my favorite, hands down, although the ensemble cast is important. D'Onofrio is a great actor who brings complexity and nuances to the Goren character. I don't care for the story arc that it appears is taking him over the edge into insanity but to be honest, I think that was always their intent, perhaps because D'Onofrio would eventually want out of this show and they knew it. Now for a villain favorite, yes, I have to go for Elizabeth Hitchens. Love to hate her and she's well played by D'Abo.
| 18:18 EDT, 29 May, 2008
Det. Goren is my favorite because he's so brilliant and insightful, yet very troubled and vulnerable as well
| 15:07 EDT, 29 May, 2008
Goren (Vincent d'Onofrio) is my favorite as the brilliant but troubled cop with the tenacity of a pitbull. I think d'Onofrio is really good in this role.
| 00:07 EDT, 29 May, 2008
I enjoy all of the casts. However, my favorite is Detective Lennie Briscoe (the late Jerry Orbach). He is still alive, well and with all of us. He was the greatest!
| 23:26 EDT, 28 May, 2008
Goren, of course. A man who can see right to the heart of other people's wrongdoing but can't seem to apply that piercing intelligence to his own life, and who pursues answers/justice without consideration of how other people's lives could be affected. Not the most realistic detective on TV, but among the most interesting.
| 13:27 EDT, 28 May, 2008
My favorite character was Detective Lennie Briscoe (the late Jerry Orbach). I once saw him on Broadway (Promises, Promises) and became a fan, which extended into his Law & Order days.
| 11:32 EDT, 28 May, 2008
I'm so not a contest type person, but it's LOCI, so I must. My favorite male character is Bobby Goren because he's an old school detective with shades of Sherlock Holmes. The character mixes logic and reasoning with science and forensics giving viewers the best of both worlds. Bobby proves that smart is sexy. My favorite female character (though I adore Eames) has to be Nicole Wallace. She brings to the table all the intelligence of Bobby with an evil twist. But because she's not pure evil, because we learn of her childhood and early years, she gives off a hope for change. Since she shows an undeniable attraction to Bobby, it provides potential for her "salvation." Any time they're both in an episode, there's the hope of redemption for Nicole.
| 11:05 EDT, 28 May, 2008
My favorite character on L&O: Criminal Intent is Mike Logan. I love the fact that when they brought the character Mike Logan back, they didn't try to create a new character with the same name, but brought back the rough and tumble, old school, speaks his mind cop that he was in the original L&O series.
| 09:18 EDT, 28 May, 2008
My favorite character on L&O: Criminal Intent would either be Goren or Logan. Logan because the first couple seasons of regular L&O were some of the best in all of L&O history. Logan is old school and I love that =D Goren because he's so smart and really tries to get into the bad guys' heads. I also love his quirkiness and hand gestures/facial expressions.
| 08:54 EDT, 28 May, 2008
I think by far detective Goren has been an outstanding cast of the show. His eccentric personality adds a little more suspense to the crimes to be unraveled. I really like his character.:)
| 07:41 EDT, 28 May, 2008
I love Detective's Logan and Goren... sorry can't choose!.. but every episode I see with them I love their characters!
| 20:08 EDT, 27 May, 2008
I like Goran as a regular, but as 'guest appearances' I have to go for Det. Lenny Briscoe played by Jerry Orbach from the original L & O), and Chris Noth (aka Mr. Big from Sex & the City)who played Det, Mike Logan.
| 18:46 EDT, 27 May, 2008
I like Eames, strong, confident, woman, great role.
| 16:52 EDT, 27 May, 2008
I like Captain Ross, he makes a great squad leader.
| 11:56 EDT, 27 May, 2008
Goren is my favorite - he's quirky and smart - he sees tiny details that the others miss
| 10:27 EDT, 27 May, 2008
Jerry Orbach. I always had this grandpa vibe from him and he was a great actor!
| 10:17 EDT, 27 May, 2008
Goren is definitely my favorite because his instincts are always spot on and I love when he does interrogations. He seems to be able to get inside the heads of the suspects like nobody else can.
| 08:45 EDT, 27 May, 2008
Bobby Goren is my favorite..he does but needs to be done to get the job done.
| 00:42 EDT, 27 May, 2008
Alicia Witt. Detective Nola Falacci. No reason other than I've found her incredibly sexy for a long time.
| 22:40 EDT, 26 May, 2008
We like Chris Noth. We enjoyed his acting as Mr. Big on Sex in the City and we enjoy him in this series as well.
| 19:16 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren is what makes the show
| 19:04 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Happy Memorial Day! I enjoy all of the "Law and Order" shows. Jerry Orbach who played Detective Lennie Briscoe was my most favorite actor andcharacter on the show. Thanks,Cindi
| 19:02 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren is my favorite character.. I love his brooding, brilliant mannerisms! Very sexy!
| 18:48 EDT, 26 May, 2008
To be honest, it seems like the show gets too complicated too late. Hence, it requires the detectives, usually Vincent, to solve the mystery quickly and connect all of the dots in an almost unbelievable manner. However, makes for a great drama.
| 18:37 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren of course! He's brilliant and knows everything about everything. He's fascinating to watch. And he always catches the criminal! He makes the show.
| 17:19 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I'm addicted to Law & Order Criminal Intent!!! I would have to say that Eames is my all-time favorite character on the show. I'd love to win this giveaway. Thanks for the chance! Have a great Memorial Day!
| 16:26 EDT, 26 May, 2008
One of my favorite all-time characters is Goren. I have to say I'm always a bit disappointed when it's the other guys.
| 16:02 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I love Goren. He's offbeat but makes for great TV!
| 14:48 EDT, 26 May, 2008
all these answers & only one vote for Mike Logan, i cant believe it.the history his character has portrayed in previous l&order brings a new edge to the show.he always plays the bad ass.if you have watched l&o since the 90s you must vote MIKE LOGAN!!!
| 14:39 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I like Robert Goren because while he is different he is also the best at what he does.
| 14:32 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I like Goren the best - he's so soft spoken and easy going, but he knows what he's doing.
| 13:59 EDT, 26 May, 2008
it's so hard to choose a favorite! I think they all bring something needed to the show(s)...
| 13:42 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I enjoy the quirkiness of Goren. He's the thinking man's Columbo.
| 13:12 EDT, 26 May, 2008
i like goren - he seems to have a handle on just about everything
| 11:14 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren carries the show..
| 11:11 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Ron Carver. I always identify with the ADA characters. They have an underrated job.
| 10:42 EDT, 26 May, 2008
My favorite is Goren because he is smart and ruthless. He's one cool cat.
| 10:04 EDT, 26 May, 2008
goren hes the straw who stirs the drink
| 10:02 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren just knows how to get things done!
| 09:46 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I love Vincent D'Onofio's character. He is quirky, cunning, wise and always dead-on!
| 08:51 EDT, 26 May, 2008
goren is the best ,he is cute.
| 08:48 EDT, 26 May, 2008
I like Goren the best, and I think the team of Goren and Eames is great.
| 07:41 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren is what makes the show. Love how he always plays with the characters like a cat playing with a mouse.
| 07:00 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Goren, he has become such a fleshed-out character.
| 06:54 EDT, 26 May, 2008
My favorite is Goren
| 06:19 EDT, 26 May, 2008
My favorite is Logan. I just love his attitude. He's a hot head :)
| 02:44 EDT, 26 May, 2008
goren has been & always will be my fav --- i couldn't handle it when mr. big (thats all i could picture him as - mr. big from sex & the city) was the lead... goren was just so smart & played sweet mind games!
| 00:16 EDT, 26 May, 2008
My favorite is Det. Goren. He is multi sided. He is quirky and overly sensitive. He's a wreck, but a loveable wreck and a great detective. I do miss, however, Jamie Sheridan. Thanks
| 00:12 EDT, 26 May, 2008
Mike Logan... just a cool char.
| 23:35 EDT, 25 May, 2008
My favorite is Goren
| 23:09 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Goren and Eames are so closely related you can't have one without the other--they just don't work alone! Goren walks the edges of sanity, Eames puts up with him, supports hims, and covers his back even when he steps over the edge.
| 23:05 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Bobby is my favorite. He sometimes has farfetched or even bizarre methods of solving a crime, but it always seems to works for him.
| 22:56 EDT, 25 May, 2008
mine too is Goren (i thought everyone's would be) because the character is so very reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes
| 22:48 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Goren for sure! I love how smart he is, how he catches things no one else does... and that he's seems to be sitting on the edge of crazy and sane... Totally sane but could fall at any moment, like his mother.
| 22:10 EDT, 25 May, 2008
My favorite L&O Criminal Intent character is definitely Goren. He's cute, highly intelligent, and a very intriguing man. He is so oddly lovable and in some ways I can relate to him.
| 22:08 EDT, 25 May, 2008
My favorite is Bobby Goren. I love that he is a little strange, but so smart. I love the way he figures out crimes in such an odd manner. My favorite show is when he gets himself put into a mental hospital to see if they are mistreating patients. His nephew was a patient in the hospital and Bobby Goren suspected that the hospital was mistreating patients, so he acted really crazy to be put inside. Really great show. Thanks for this awesome giveaway.
| 22:07 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Bobby Goren is my favorite because he exists.
| 21:55 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I Think Goren Is Great, But, Eames Is So Sexy, That Tough Exterior, Soft Interior. I think That She Maybe Has One Of The Finest Female Parts On T.V, And Plays It Just Great.
| 21:52 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I really wish I could answer this. I've seen a few episodes and I like the main prosecutor guy, but I can't remember his name. I'm entering this for my spouse, who's an absolute L&O diehard.
| 21:44 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Goren really carries the show and is (for me) the best actor, but I also like Mike Logan, he's brought a lot to the show.
| 20:57 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I like Goren the best. He knows everything and he follows his own path. I don't like whatever they are doing now with his background. I think they should stick to keeping him smart and always knowing who did it as soon as him walks in the room.
| 20:39 EDT, 25 May, 2008
My favorite is Bobby Goren. Why? He just is.
| 20:06 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I have just started watching this show. I would love to see the first shows. Thanks for the chance.
| 20:00 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I love Law & Order Criminal Intent; its my absolute favourite of all the Law & Orders. My favourite character would be Goren (Vincent D'Onoffrio sp?). He is a BRILLIANT actor and he brings such complex emotions and levels of life to this character. The "mind games" he plays with people and his ability to stand in the criminals shoes, to really understand them, is fantastic!! I love his independent spirit, his relationship he had with his mother, and now his brother. He is a caring, complex and admirable man, that Goren is. btw, I can't watch this show without Goren's character, it just doesn't work
| 19:40 EDT, 25 May, 2008
i absolutely love goren- the way he can get into the minds of the criminals and hes just brilliant, i love that he took care of his mom, and has his own imperfections, hes human-i love eames and logan as well, all the characters work so well together, they all have their own strengths that they bring to the show- i love law and order ci- cant wait to see the new episodes!!
| 19:10 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Bobby Goren tops the list for me. His brilliant deductive reasoning combined with his quirky in-your-face mode of interrogation makes him an unparalleled character on any of the Law & Order programs.
| 18:18 EDT, 25 May, 2008
goren he carries the show hes the straw who stirs the drimk
| 18:16 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I really like Mike Logan. He just has the right attitude and expressions for me...I think bringing him on for alternate weeks actually saved the show from being canceled.
| 18:10 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Without a doubt, my favorite character is Detective Robert Goren. He may be a little quirky (okay ... A LOT quirky) but his intuition combined with his tenacity always seems to get the job done!!!
| 18:07 EDT, 25 May, 2008
Goren is my favorite because he does whatever it takes to get the criminal. I love watching him.
| 00:20 EDT, 25 May, 2008
I think Goren is my favorite character because he has this way to getting inside the mind of the perp. He is able to connect on that level of madness and yet still be grounded and interesting. I also feel that Goren is the one character that has grown the most showing a steady progression in his character allowing us, the viewers, to feel as though we are growing with him. His intense outer energy and attitude keeps us interested and intrigued while deep down he has the soft sweet side that makes the viewers want to know more and keep us coming back to see those moments of vulnerability to allow us to connect with him on a personal level
| 16:32 EDT, 24 May, 2008
I'd say I love them all, because that is no doubt the truth, but right now I think my favorite character is Captain Ross. He's worked hard to get where he is, and he is really the best person for the job; filling in Deakins shoes must have been a daunting task, but Ross did it, and runs a great squad.The tension between Ross and Goren in the beginning was great to watch and his reliance on Eames to keep him in line was comical. With Logan it's nice that, despite his history, has given him the benefit of the doubt enough to partner him with Falacci.For all Ross's 'by the book' attitude, he has in the end trusted his detectives to do their job when it counts and he's been there to help save them when they're in trouble. I think that makes him a great character to watch and a great one to look up to.
| 12:50 EDT, 23 May, 2008
I think Nicole Wallace (Elizabeth Hitchens) Is my favorite character. She makes a wonderful Nemesis, and I think it's because she is female. She seems to have a thing for Goren, yet hates him at the same time, and although she is a bad guy (gal, I suppose) she does have some good in her, which is confirmed when she manages to do the right thing, in one episode. Nicole also appears to be one step ahead of Goren or right at his level which is a big deal for the bad guy as Goren is a very smart man who knows almost everything and can tell you who committed a crime way before anyone else.
| 20:17 EDT, 16 May, 2008
My favourite is Goren, for obvious reasons, he's brilliant beyond compare and has his demons that he has to deal with (his brother's addiction, his mother's illness), he is everything a classic detective is, troubled yet gifted intellectually. And his partnership with Eames works so well, when she isn't there he is constantly saying things like "Eames would have known that." Although I love all of the Law and Orders, when Goren isn't on a Criminal Intent episode I have to fight the urge to turn it off.
| 14:26 EDT, 16 May, 2008
My favorite character in L&O: Criminal Intent is by far Eames. She may not be the main focus of the show, but I absolutely love her! She's a strong cop and it's great to see a woman who can kick butt! I also think she's hilarious- Eames always has those witty one-liners that are so funny. Alex Eames is awesome!!
