Trivia: Law & Order: Criminal Intent

  • Actor Allusion: A possible one, to Goren being in the military.
  • Channel Hop: From NBC to USA with Season Seven.

  • Harpo Does Something Funny: In the special features of the Season 1 DVD, the producers say that after hiring Vincent D'Onofrio they basically allowed him to do whatever he wanted, leading to many Funny Moments and one of the most distinctive characters in the crime genre.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Private Pyle is Goren, Shirley Bellinger is Eames, Randall Flagg is Deakins, Mr. Big is Logan, Seth Brundle is Nichols, and Travis Dane is Ross.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Imagine if Goldblum had decided to film a few more episodes for the series ender. Nichols and Goren cracking a case together would've just been awesome.
    • Apparently, there were plans to write an episode that revealed that Nicole Wallace wasn't dead, but said plans never came around to making it into an actual episode.
    • There were plans for L&O, SVU, and CI to have a major crossover with Goren being the central character investigating a potential terrorist plot. Then 9/11 happened and the plans were abandoned and never revisited while the Mothership and CI were still on the air.
