Review of "Playing Dead"

Examiner.com, 4.18.09
by Christine Nyholm, Chicago Cable TV Examiner

USA Network’s Law & Order Criminal Intent premieres for season 8 with an episode called Playing Dead. The premiere episode stars Vincent D’Onofrio as Detective Robert Goren and Katherine Erbe as Detective Eames. Eric Bogosian returns as Captain Danny Ross. Guest starring in Playing Dead is Kathy Baker, a very fine actress. I was able to view advance review copy of Playing Dead, and found it both facinating and entertaining...

Detective Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) went into some very dark places in Season 7, but many of his personal demons were put to rest at the end of the season . Goren is once again engaged with the case and the criminals. The genius detective is able to understand much of this case because of his on dysfunctional family upbringing, which he partially shares with one of the characters in the story to gain trust..."

...I was riveted with the story from beginning to end.

Thanks Peachybc!
