It’s almost the end of July! I can’t believe that the year is half over and I need to make more Christmas Cards:)...did I just say that word? I had my jolt juice(lidocaine infusion) On Tuesday and was a bit stoned for the day but it helps with my pain. This week, over at Wandering Through The Shelves, it s tv time and it’s all about crime shows. Let’s see what I have chosen...
This has spawned so many other CSI shows that I thought there would be a CSI Wainfleet...where I grew up, but the only crimes they may find is which hog slept with which cow, anyways, this was quite a good show before it became too full of itself. I liked the original show(in Las Vegas) that started off with the crime and then we see the forensic experts come in, take the evidence, the “Vic”, (my mom hated that term and thought it was disrespectful to the victim...she was right) and within 24-48 hours, they solve the crime. Never mind that nothing happens that fast, that the forensic people, would Never interview the suspects, never mind that it would take months to get all that DNA evidence. Regardless, I enjoyed this one and CSI: New York because I really like Gary Sinese. I watched the Miami one but I always laughed at Carrot top, aka, David Caruso, trying to be cool by saying some quip and then taking his sunglasses off.
This is one show I really enjoyed about a famous writer of crime mysteries who works with a police dept after one of the crimes seems to follow one of his novels. The problem is that the author won’t leave and is able to stick around and follow, help and often solve many of the crimes. One of the main reasons is not only his love of crime but his hots for the lead detective. It is often done in a comedic way but there were plenty of times where drama came in especially concerning the murder of the lead detective’s mother. Apparently, the 2 leads disliked each other but it only showed as snappy foreplay and the show didn’t suffer even after the 2 marry.
This is a British series that my hubby and I found on PBS mysteries and it is well worth a look. It runs about 8 or so episodes starting off where a skeleton is found. The team, lead by boss, Nicola Walker, is brought in to deal, specifically, with cold cases. We see how they find out who the victim is and soon there are 4 suspects that could have committed the crime. We not only see how the detectives try to solve the case but we follow the boss's life, her right hand man and the lives of the 4 suspects. We become involved in their lives and feel for the victim and their family that must endure the pain of finally knowing what has happened. The last one we watched was chilling to say the least. I can’t wait to see more.
Sorry Colombo..anyhoo, which 3 would you choose?
