    you at least have to do away with CSI Miami.
    Ha-ha. This is a favorite of mine. Along with NCIS. Both of them good shows. They could do away with most of the rest however. (although I don't mind The Mentalist or SVU eiter)

    I have never seen a CSI or Law and Order in my life... yet here I am.

    Amazing isn't it?

    CSI Miami....it turns decent actors into really bad ones. I know that the blonde CSI can act. I have seen her on West Wing but on that show she recites lines as if she Bill Belichick at a press conference.
    The NCIS one...I think just based on that guy who plays the obligatory eye candy for the ladies...the tall, smug guy...just on that i really dislike that show. That guy is so unlikable and part of that formula. You got the cool leader who has his quirks but is respected for his leadership or brain. You got the eye candy for the males and females....then the really weird and nerdy science people to fill out the rest.

    One of the worst shows I've ever seen. The acting's bad, the plot-lines ludicrous, the dialogue stupid, even the orange-drenched photography is ridiculous.

    The guy at my work, using our wifi, who doesn't start shutting down until about two minutes after the closing announcement. This, despite our ample warning announcement at 15 before the hour. Next Sunday, I'm turning the router off at closing time.

    This dude really drives me crazy.

    If only they someone smart enough to come up with a show like Dr. Who and a network with the guts to air it. That is not to say that I'd like to see a network hire a bunch of writers to rewrite Dr. Who scripts to make it more palatable for the American audience.

    Except for the last two -- the ending to this past "year of specials" was just a train wreck.

    I'm really stoked for Moffat to start handling the show. His episodes have been amazing and he seems to have a real feel for balancing the show between family-friendly stuff and really introspective sci-fi. "The Girl in the Fireplace" is probably one of the two or three best episodes in the 40+ year history of the show.

    On a related note, when you go to a place like Panera and there is some person with a laptop doing work and takes up a whole booth or 4 place table when the restaurant is full and people are waiting for tables to open up. They may have bought a cup of coffee 3-4 hours earlier but have long since finished. Move along, people.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Yes. Shows like that (or any other really) are all about the writers. You can really tell when the writers change.

    Jerry Orbach's character is (was) my favorite police detective of all time. Orbach was a great actor. Having did stage work for most of his life in NYC, he had NYC down to perfection. He was actually a really good singer, but you'd never know that from his role on L & O.

    When you shake the parmesan cheese canister to break up the cheese and the other half of the lid opens up (the very open half) and parmesan cheese ends up everywhere. I'm not sure that there was an easy way to explain that I didn't have a bad case of dandruff that day.

    Nor have I.

    WOY and 62: The old law and orders are worth watching if you're stuck in a hotel somewhere and you like hard boiled detective stories (first half our) and courtroom dramas (second half hour). CSI is not worth watching under any circumstances.

    Law students: watching law and order will improve your criminal procedure grade. I kid you not.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Agreed, the original Law and Order is a pretty good police and court procedural. The CSI franchise is just junk.
