So, I've been on this captioning pictures kick for the past couple of weeks. I've been amusing my friends and more than likely making myself look like a slightly crazy nerd, but what the heck! In light of recent events, the laughter has been good. So here are some of the chuckles I've been sending out lately. Enjoy!

So, with NBCU/USA's decision to gut my favorite show in favor of a "lighter" tone, I thought that the show's narrative needed an overhaul. The current narrative reads like this:
Well, the "new" and not-so-improved Criminal Intent certainly cannot use THAT as their opening. It just doesn't fit with those new fluffy blue skies over at USA. So...here is an opening narrative that will be much more appropriate:

This seems like a fitting title though it is sad that my very first blog post will be about something so disappointing and unfair. I am shocked and dismayed, and quite disappointed in those in charge at NBCU/USA/Wolf Productions for their shoddy treatment of my favorite show Law & Order: Criminal Intent. From recent reports, it seems as though they are dumping Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Eric Bogosian, for reasons which I am still trying to fathom. It seems to be all about the money folks.
And how are they doing this? How are they treating our beloved Bobby Goren after eight seasons? And his steadfast partner Alex Eames? Are they giving them a full season to say goodbye to their fans, during which time their fans can say goodbye to them properly? NO!
Reports say that they are writing Goren out after the season opener, and it's unclear when Eames and Ross will go. They are, in effect, completely disrespecting not only the show and its fans, but the actors as well.
NBCU/USA/Wolf Productions: You should be ashamed of the sloppy way you are treating these fine actors and this wonderful show. Truly ashamed.
You have lost your fan base with this decision and sunk your own ship. It's truly detestable the way these three fine actors have been treated and also how their characters have been discounted, as though they do not matter to the show.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent has always been character driven. As one astute observer has stated in recent days, the show was never about watching the cops catch another bad guy. It was about watching Detective Robert Goren catch said bad guy. Watching him manipulate the suspects, play with them like a cat toys with a mouse before it pounces in for the kill. That has always been the magic of Criminal Intent, and always will be.
