Not impressed with the new music for Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Not an upgrade.

I know! James and I both had the same reaction about LO:CI. It's as if they decided that because the show moved to cable they needed to amp it up somehow to signal the change. Someone said, "Let's make this thing bold and brassy!" There is something really campy about it, which seems to be the direction the show is going into. I don't mind getting to know Detective Goren a little better (main reason to watch), but it could veer toward excessive melodrama if they're not careful.

When I was at the height of my obsession with Detective Goren I actually had dreams where I was his new partner. My husband was jealous, though I'm not sure if it's because he thought I was going to get into some funny business with Goren, or because he wanted to be Goren's new partner.

I guess there are so many reruns on cable that they felt the need to make the new ones stand out, but it's quite obnoxious. I didn't want to believe that it was in fact some new awful theme variation the first week, but week two confirmed it.

Last year's extended music bits were kind of strange and certainly unnecessary, as well.

These types of maneuvers seem like miscalculations: bother people who watch the show now without giving anyone who doesn't watch already a reason to start.

Still I like Vincent D'onofrio's mystery solving skills enough to keep watching.
