Series summary Edit
Like most other Law & Order shows, Criminal Intent follows the police as they solve crimes and subsequently build a case against the defendant. In Criminal Intent, however, more screen time is given to the criminals and victims, revealing their 'intent' in the time leading up to the crime. Additionally, most episodes end in a confession rather than a court case - breaking away from the 'half cops/half lawyers' format of the original Law & Order.
Law & Order spun off Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
