Second SpinOff from the popular ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' series, ''Criminal Intent'' shows the viewer what is happening from the criminal's perspective as well as the ongoing police investigation. Basically, what happens when ''Series/{{Columbo}}'' is brought into the ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' universe, complete with a quirky genius detective - Robert Goren ([[Creator/VincentDOnofrio Vincent D'Onofrio]]), an anti-social, twitchy detective in the NYPD Major Case Squad who has a very sharp mind for piecing together details and lateral thinking. Together with dryly sardonic partner Alex Eames (Kathryn Erbe), they investigate the most serious crimes that occur in New York (most of which seem to be murders or end up in murders), whilst the show also gives us the perspective of the people responsible for it (or at least people who are connected to the people responsible for it).

* QuizzicalTilt: Goren likes to tilt his entire upper body during interrogations, leaving his head nearly sideways. This is probably less to express confusion and more to unnerve the interrogee.
