Some of you people remind me of how bad I felt when Bob McAllister replaced Sonny Foxx on Wonderama in 1967. I told my mommy I would never watch it again. But then I was only 6 years old.
Get over it..it''s a freaking TV show.

Gorem was fired from the production because he spent all his time at the craft services truck eating any and all the fried food. He got so f-in fat that he could not fit into his trailer any more.

The writer of this article is pretty empty headed if you ask me!

NO ONE can fill Vincent D'Onofrio's size 13 shoes! The writers screwed up his charactor, but Vincent will always be one of the best actors on this planet. He is amazing the way he can change himself into just about anything. He truly is 'the chamelian'! Besides; that screwy Nichols charactor is nothing compared to Robert Goren and Jeff Goldblum has no appeal to me at all! I wish you the best Mr D'Onofrio; but NO ONE can fill YOUR shoes; or Bobby Gorens either! I simply won't watch once he is gone! Bobby Goren IS Criminal Intent, and Vincent D'onofrio IS Bobby Goren!
Give us back our Bobby!

Well, another CI Purist checking in.....Best wishes to Vincent in whatever he chooses to do, which could be almost anything in the acting field....on the other hand, I do think if he would have wanted to stay on as Bobby Goren, He should have been paid an enormous amount of money to match his talent, which, of course is tops, in my book. I won't be watching CI anymore because the heart of the show has been removed; if they ever return to the show, so will I.
