I've gone through periods of not watching TV for months or longer. I'd lost interest in typical primetime programming and developed Fear of Bad Sitcoms. I tended to not have hope about the quality of premiering series and didn't bother watching. Cable series such as Sopranos, Six Feet Under and Weeds provided entertainment - along with brit crime fare Prime Suspect, Cracker, etc.
Eventually, due to sleeplessness, satellite and syndication, I'm now hooked on CSI.
The original CSI is amazing (CSI:NY is good as well, IMO). Petersen
) have long been faves of mine. The technical research, writing and acting are top notch. What an interesting creative team
! A fave episode is String Theory.
(Go ahead, mock me cuz I'm a relative CSI newbie.)
If you haven't seen Michael Mann's Manhunter
, check it out!
Does anyone remember the 'new' Twilight Zone series from the 1980s? How about the episode with William Petersen and Frances McDormand
solving a mystery in a small southwestern town? Very quirky.
