No chance of Chris Noth joining L&O CI. :( I read an interview with Vincent D'onofrio and he has recovered from his illness, whatever it was (exhaustion or something) and has no intention of leaving. I do love D'onofrio, so that's not terrible news, but I sure would love to see Chris Noth back on an L&O series.
Criminal Intent returned here last week and I forgot how much I love it, I still prefer SVU but both are much better than the original which went downhill after Angie Harmon left.
Not too sure of the new ADA.....something about her.
I agree with Fanatic277, I liked Harmon the best.
I'm a regular L&O viewer and fanatic. (I've got the first season on DVD and the PC game. :blush)

Rowland's accepting favors from contractors and a minor back story, inspired by the resignation of NJ Gov. McGreevey.) McCoy subpoenas their star witness but to his dismay, the witness is married to the same-gender defendant. McCoy decides to counter with his interpretation of spousal privilege. He seeks to the higher courts to ban gay marriages much to Serena's appall and objection. Her emotional involvement was very apparent in this episode. With her recent finale, now I understand why.
I'd heard that he was confirmed to appear in one episode sometime this season, but I have no idea when. Personally, I'd rather see him come back to the original show and replace Farina. :nod

The Law & Order - Season 3 DVD will be released just as this year's season finale airs on television, giving fans 22 gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines episodes to watch between seasons. Priced at $59.98 SRP.
:yay :yay :banana
I'm a little excited by this news.
That is what I also understood that he was going to "guest star" in a couple of Criminal Intent shows in the spring.

Orbach wins SAG award
Sad it happened after his death, but Jerry Orbach did win a SAG award posthumously for his work as best actor in a Drama series.
I didn't see the ceremony, but from my understanding his widow Elaine accepted the award on his behalf. It had to be a bittersweet moment that he was unable to live long enough to accept it himself.
Chris Noth will be reprising his role as Mike Logan- plaid ties and all- on L&O: CI next Sunday night, Feb. 13.
Here's a sneak peek from nbc.com:
As far as I know, this is his only confirmed appearance.
Happy news for Ajane?

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Noth's guest appearance this weekend on Law & Order: Criminal Intent is the start of something big.
Noth, who left the original Law & Order 10 years ago, will become a regular on the spinoff beginning next season, series spokeswoman Pam Ruben Golum said Tuesday.
He will split duties with current series lead Vincent D'Onofrio, who's continuing as police Det. Robert Goren. Each actor will appear in 11 episodes for the fifth season. The NBC series airs at 9 p.m. EST on Sunday.
Noth's casting will ease the workload for D'Onofrio, who was in hospital briefly last year for exhaustion.
"The hardest job in show business is being a single lead on an hour drama series," said Law & Order creator and executive producer Dick Wolf.
"Vincent has done an unbelievable job for the last four seasons but after three-and-a-half years, the gruelling pace finally took its toll."
He called Noth's addition to the show an "ideal solution."
Noth, who was Sarah Jessica Parker's love interest, Mr. Big, on HBO's Sex and the City, will again play police Det. Mike Logan, his character from 1990-95 on Law & Order.
