This has been bugging me since Law & Order Criminal Intent started up on USA Network this season.
It’s the theme song.
Call me old fashioned, but I liked the original hard-rocking edgy theme of the earlier seasons. And this season’s “new” theme really isn’t new at all; it’s the theme from the short-lived Law & Order Trial by Jury. This “new” theme sounds a little too bombastic for me.
I have all three embedded below. Take a listen, and either comment or vote in the poll on which theme you prefer. (The poll is located on the right side column of this blog. You may have to scroll down to find it.) Don't concern yourself with who is in the clip - it's not about whether your a Goren (D'Onofrio) fan or Logan (Noth) fan. (NOTE: The poll has ended and has been removed from my blog. Of 45 voters, 66% preferred the original theme, 24% preferred the new theme, the rest liked neither - and both! Please feel free to comment if you have a strong preference.)
By the way, I like the title cards much better in this season. Even though some of the pictures are the same, they’ve added a bit of a three-dimensional quality to them.
“New Theme” – which is the old Trial By Jury Theme
Don’t believe me? Here’s the Trial by Jury’s Theme
