Noth vs. Goldblum
Who do you think was the better 2nd lead detective of the two?
Liked all the detectivesshare
I'm partial to Goldblum because I just love him in anything he's in, but Noth does one hell of a great job as well. Jeff by a nose, but oh so close.share
Hands down Noth. He could be serious at all key moments and transition well to being funny here and there in a mellow and not OTT way, had great banter with his partners, Rodgers, capt, and even perps.
Goldblum always had a smug look, smiled a lot, and it was too hard not to laugh at him when he was trying to be serious!
That would make 3 Christmas' I've saved, vs. 8 that I've ruined; two were kind of a draw..
Well said.I totally agree.I love Det.Logan.He's like a guy's guy.share
Noth by a long shot. There's no contest.share
Goldblum, love those eyes. Loved him in Jurassic Park. I *beep* a purple Twinkie when I learned his daughter was black in the movie (I want to be the mom).share
Actually like I wrote before, between those two I preferred Noth, but my very favorite is Vincent D'Onofrio.share
Noth by far.
Jeff was okay but the show around him was in transition and got messy around him. He never really had the stability Chris or especially Vincent had. The first year he got stuck with a partner in Nicholson that he had very little chemistry with and the plots of his shows were especially boring minus the show with the DNA guy. Year 2 he got 2 co-starts who he did well with but the stories were so boring or silly especially the Clue esque show that he never had any consistency. The one good show he had that year and his classic was the couple with the kink fetish in year 9; that was one tense and fun episode. But by then it was too late as the ratings went down and they had to axe him.
He wasn't a bad hire it was quite smart to pick him but I think two main things hurt him: 1. like I mentioned before everything was changing and Jeff had no stablity, and 2. I don't think the writers really knew how he ticked. They plugged him in and he went along. Nichols didn't have that many relatable moments besides the Clue show. He was just there to find the bad guy and have some Jeffy moments. But it's far from his finest hour sadly; honestly I think he took it for the money.
Noth meanwhile had Logan down pat and he knew how he ticked so he could just be let loose and play for a while and he did well. It gave him a way to prop himself up after Sex and the City and gave the fans more Logan after the first show. His run was way more consistent as the shows were more better than Jeff's were mostly and overall he just fit the show better. He was always good on the down and dirty shows and CI had quite a few. He had great chemistry with both his bosses and he and Alica Whitt were really, really good together. Shame they forced her out for Nicholson; granted she did good with him but they shoulda kept Alicia.
Noth also got to do the angry moments where he always excelled at on the first show. He just had more to play with and was a better fit.
