This guest post written by Dirk Stanton.

I love my Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Everyone always says, “I need more time.” Well, I can say, “I have more time” thanks to my DVR. I enjoy Law & Order and all of the Law & Order spinoffs including Law & Order SVU and Law & Order Criminal Intent. I even watch the reruns! Now, that’s a lot of Law & Order each week.

I became so obsessed that I had to limit myself to only 5 shows each week; this added up to 5 hours of my time. Now that I have a DVR attached to my Expert Satellite TV box I can record my shows and watch them when I want. I can even fast forward through the recap at the beginning of the series and all of the commercials. This saves me almost 20 minutes per episode or 100 minutes each week.

Although, the original Law & Order may be ending, a new spinoff set in Los Angeles is schedule to begin this fall. I will be ready to record it with my DVR. Maybe I can find a new series to watch with all my extra time.

Jeff Goldblum Joins Law and Order

Tonight’s TV isn’t that bad. Well, not as bad as it was last week. How can it be bad when we have a new Law & Order: Criminal Intent starring the one and only Jeff Goldblum?  In tonight’s episode, Detective Nichols is investigating the murder of a drug dealer who was planning on leaving town. Catch the new episode on NBC at 9pm.

Jeff Goldblum Joins Law and Order

With the current season of TV coming to an end, the tube is pretty bare. For tonight, thankfully we still have Jeff Goldblum catching criminals on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In tonight’s all new episode, Nichols and Wheeler are investigating the death of a con man who just scammed a lonely single mother.

How in the world did I miss this casting tidbit? The one and only Jeff Goldblum is joining Law and Order: Criminal Intent. While I didn’t get into his 2007 television effort, Raines, I think Goldblum is an incredible talent and is a perfect fit for the Law and Order universe.

He’ll be portraying Zack Nichols, a cerebral and quirky detective who is paired with Detective Megan Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson). Sixteen all new episodes of Criminal Intent will be airing in 2009 on the USA Network. While waiting for new episodes you can head over to the official L&O website and play a game of concentration, or a variety of other games and trivia.
