Law & Order Episode Summaries for the Week of February 3, 2008

The “original recipe” Law & Order is running a new episode on NBC this week, with Criminal Intent rerunning an episode previously aired this season on the USA Network. SVU is being pre-empted for “Super Tuesday” coverage.

The Criminal Intent episode is “Untethered” which contains probably the best performance by Vincent D’Onofrio in the Criminal Intent series. My review of “Untethered” can be found, here.

Law & Order “Quit Claim” Episode 18-07 Air Date February 6, 2008
DETECTIVES LUPO AND GREEN GO UNDERCOVER AFTER A DEADLY HIT-AND-RUN: ‘MAD MEN’S’ JANUARY JONES GUEST-STARS – After a mother and daughter are killed in a hit and run accident, Detectives Green (Jesse L. Martin) and Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) track down the vehicle and find only a stack of $100 bills left inside. A trace on the money leads the detectives to a young couple that is victims of a real estate scam. Green and Lupo decide the best way to crack this case is to go undercover with the help of Kim Brody (guest star January Jones, “Mad Men”), an employee at the title company that handled the closings on the illegal real estate deals. Brody proves not be who she claims, leaving her innocence and real identity in question. Also starring: Sam Waterson, S. Epatha Merkerson, Linus Roache, and Alana De La Garza.

Law & Order Criminal Intent “Untethered” Episode 07-09, Re-Air Date February 6, 2008
A young prison inmate is killed in an upstate New York facility's mental ward. When detective Goren's nephew Donny, an inmate in the same prison, tells Goren he thinks the prisoner was murdered, Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) goes undercover. In order to determine if a crime was indeed committed, Goren manipulates his way into the same mental ward to either prove or refute his nephew's claims. Also starring:Kathryn Erbe, Eric Bogosian, Tony Goldwyn (as Frank Goren).

Sounds interesting, however:

To me, it is a mistake to have to a new episode this week. NBC is likely going to have numerous pre-emptions by affiliates in Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) markets for Duke at North Carolina, the biggest rivalry in all of college basketball (while the game airs nationally on ESPN, that coverage is blacked out in ACC markets, where it usually airs on over-the-air stations).

If it were up to me, I would have instead run two "CI" episodes (that are new to NBC, but previously aired on USA Network) this week.
