  1. The Rookie Anticipation: Back To The Precinct

    I keep wondering why they have 50-year-old NF playing a 40-year-old. Why not make him a 45-year-old rookie? It just seems like a potential for NF fans to feel sorry for him instead of enjoying the role he is playing. IDK. Maybe there will be fourth wall-breaking asides and in-jokes about his age, and it will work.
  2. As well you should. The sole purpose of carrying a pane of glass on a public street in daytime is so hijinks can ensure. But, OTOH, if two people were pushing a cart of spherical objects, a fleeing suspect will run into them momentarily.

    True, but Eddie Cibrian is sort of a Stana Katic equivalent. The real question then (IMO) is whether Rachel Bilson is a Nathan Fillion. —I've never watched her in anything, but Nathan Fillion isn't just charming; he has comic timing, and does self-deprecating without losing his I'm-still-debonair self-confidence.

    That was my main problem. Also, if she's just out of rehab shouldn't she be struggling to stay sober? But maybe they will dig into her addiction issues a few episodes in. They probably want to establish it as a mostly light-hearted show first I may have missed something, but is it too late for them to retcon that her falling down drunk/stoned/whatever was a one-off and that the rehab was just a PR move to get sympathy and prove she was all better now? If they do go that direction, they'd need at least one episode where Ms. Bright-n-Cheery meets someone who needs but has no means for rehab, and then, after some soul searching, she starts a go-fund-me type of project.

    Well, it's got Jordan Gavaris (Felix on Orphan Black) as the ME. It wasn't as bad as I expected. I fell asleep during the last main commercial break, but woke up in time to get the reason Eddie Cibrian's character still needs the actress (she draws much needed customers). Evidentally he's the rare PI who chooses catching the bad guy over getting paid (is that even a thing? I mean, are they typically mutually exclusive?), while the spoiled starlet doesn't seem to understand why it's necessary to earn money (because PI is a public service??), so they should make a good team (only on TV). My biggest problem is that in my many years on this earth and many times around many blocks, I have never met anyone that peppy and cheery with a drug problem.

    I wish we had seen that^^ scenario in detail instead of the ridiculous dunce cap bit to explain why they were cutting up the concrete. @theatremouse is an apt screen name.
  7. Thank you! I appreciated the art work on the dress much more than Tom & Lorenzo. ETA: Last night the young musician Two Feet was surprisingly good: https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/t/two-feet-performs-it-feels-like-im-drowning/vp-AAyWZxq

    --and no pun intended, heh.

    I'm pretty sure that they would be comparing the teacher's DNA to the DNA of the blood found (planted) at the scene, which had already been processed (unlike the DNA of all those with life sentences who were convicted in Chicago during the 20+ years of the systematic torture-for-confesssion policy, or the DNA of 1000s of rape kits in the US alone). I think the question is why is his DNA in a database in the first place. IIRC, the blood was matched to his DNA before he was a suspect - and that's how he became a person of interest. If his DNA wasn't already on file, they wouldn't have had a match. Oh. Right. Teachers are generally fingerprinted. Maybe the writers got confused.
  10. Season 20 Spoilers & Speculation

    I don't know how TV writing works, but maybe since they have a really long lead time for the season premiere, they will come up with something that makes good use of the 2 hours (84 minutes).

    ^^Which reminds me: I was waiting for a connection between the sand used to make the concrete that encased the corpse and the murderous sand miner. Or I thought maybe the guy who poured the concrete ahead of schedule was paid off to cover the body—but then he wouldn't have been so calm about having to remove the concrete. And speaking of calm, I really thought he should've vomitted.
  12. Season 12: Good Riddance Lewin!

    Yeah, but back in 2002 when it was written, I'm guessing the writers thought it was better/more PC to have those words come out of a woman's mouth than a man's. Like, imagine a male character saying that the abused wife should've left or taken martial arts classes so she could fight back. The opening scene telegraphs that they were exploring opinions on gender:

  14. I loved Ruth Negga's dress on the show. I wonder about its provenance. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5863575/Ruth-Negga-looks-gorgeous-dragon-themed-dress-arrives-chat-Stephen-Colbert.html

    Heh. Not likely. But you never know. Hopefully it was just a glitch, but ever since IMDb shut down their message boards, I've been waiting for another shoe to drop.
