What it comes down to for most people is if you like the character of Robert Goren and how Vincent D'Onofrio plays him. I love both, but I can understand how the character and the performance could drive people crazy.

P.S. Case in point, I don't know too many people who dislike Desperate Housewives but still watch it.

Goren rocks!! I never paid any attention to this show before last year. My wife was a big fan, and all I did was mock the intro music, playing air guitar and grimacing like a rock star. It irritated my wife. After a year or so of doing this and several times marginally paying attention, I started coming around to be a fan of the show. Now, I think I like it more than she does. Well, I LOVE IT!! My wife is now taking a fancy to SVU. Not too bad, but I love Goren's quirkiness.
See now..it's addictive. I cannot go a night without watching it, or I am grumpy the next day. I was told the other day when I finally got to watch my show (cause a bunch of movies had been coming on and I didn't get to watch my show)I was told I was in a good mood. I told they yeah cause I got to watch my favorite show last night. Thing is I have to stay up late to watch it, I can't see the early show most of the time because I have to get my kids ready for bed.

i've always been an SVU girl, but CI isnt bad either.
Svu is great too, I do like CI better, but Mariska is great! So are Meloni, Ice-T and Munch and Captain Craigan. They are all good. But I still like CI better because of Goran and Eames. Goran cracks me up and oh! I found out he was born in 59'.

so he's only like 46, that's not that old
Yeah, he's 18 years older than I am, but in People magazine there are alot of actors that go out with people 20 years younger than they are (no kidding)!

Goren's tendencies to taste and smell things is one of the character's debts to Sherlock Holmes.

I've noticed a lot of Sherlock Holmes' traits in him but his tendency to say 'Oh, and one more thing...' right before he leaves a suspect reminds a lot of Columbo.

He's sniffs corpses which once led him to discover COD in a suspect because it's mouth smelled like "almonds"(cianide poisoning). He poked a dead mans eyeball. He tastes things at the crime scene. Like in "Sound Bodies" when he tasted the "caulking" and discovered it was made with cake icing. And how about his propensity for asking weird and/or socially inappropriate questions?
Anyone remember Due South? The guy on that show was kind of the same way. At least when it came to sniffing and tasting stuff.

If he had Aespergars I dont think he would be able to do his job effectively due to the inability to be social.
I think Goren's quirkiness is just him trying to be as good of a detective as possible. Quite obsessive !!
He should take the Monkish quiz, I'm sure he'd be pretty close to Monkish in my opinion.
