A online correspondence with a foreign friend led me to start doing these episode recaps for Law and Order: Criminal Intent last season. They don't get the new episodes until much later than we do, so I did up a descriptive, (SPOILERY) running commentary for her.
I finally got a chance to post the one I did for the Season 8 premiere that aired last Sunday and posted it over on my brand new LJ LOCI home: http://community.livejournal.com/
It's lengthy. I called it a summary. She calls it a "longery."
