    The original concept of L&O: Criminal Intent was to depict crimes from the viewpoint of the perpetrator. That was very quickly dropped.

    I think it's interesting to watch how apparently unrelated perpetrator and victim cross paths.

    I found myself doing a lot of 30 second skipping through the last two episodes, so I just deleted my SP.

    I still think, for a summer show, it's decent (even with my slight complaint about the gimmick above).

    I'm only about half way through the 5th episode, but I remember they're doing *something* different.. but I don't remember what it is now. Maybe a CSI-like zoom in to the evidence or something? I just remember there's an effect that was used several times in these later episodes that wasn't in the first couple.

    Looks like Motive is on the chopping block. Today's episode has been bumped to Saturday @ 2 AM.

    It's already been renewed for a second season.

    In Canada, anyway, where it was the highest-rated new show of the season...

    Was there a football game on, that bumped all of the ABC shows here in Philly. We watched the first 3 episodes, my wife fell asleep during each one, and I had 3 more sitting on the DVR and just cancelled the SP, it didn't grab us at all. Oh well.

    I don't know, I wasn't paying attention. Is this upcoming episode the season finale? No new episode is showing up after that.

    2 hour season finale was last night.
    2 1 hour episodes anyway.

    Was bumped in many areas due to pre season football last night, but not here.

    Don't like how the main female detective seems to have something akin to Spidey Senses. Always seems to make these crazy leaps that peg the killer. I get having a hunch but they should provide something that triggers that hunch. She seems to just 'get it'. Got quite a few unwatched eps. Hopefully it gets better.

    Cool, even though I still don't really like the gimmick.. It is still entertaining, and the main cop is pretty hot.

    I hope that means it'll come back in the U.S.. It got pretty horrific ratings, didn't it?

    Wait a minute, the season finale aired already? My TiVo S.P. totally missed it. WTF!

    This show is good enough to continue. I like the whole concept of showing the victim/killer up front and then connecting the dots. The lead female isn't too shabby either.

    Maybe because the finale was 2 shows back to back as a 2 hour timeslot.. higher priority SP hit instead?
