Readers, I'm going to need your help on this one.
I still don't think I followed this last episode so well. The wrap-up from the wife made it clear (somewhat), but wasn't there a third person?
And weren't there a couple pets named Gareth as well as a person?
John Schneider. Man, just smack me in the head.
Forgive my french, but that was some piss-poor acting, even from a character who is bad actor stuck in very bad C-grade flicks! Ugh. He made David Caruso look … uh … er … nope, sorry, couldn't say it. Not here on the Internet where it will be 'till Kingdom Come.
The only other observation I had is wasn't it nice to watch an episode without all the neon blue lighting?
Tess, I have to agree; the producers are really trying to experiment a bit. The cinematography style and storytelling is being tweaked, but not so much that it doesn't feel like "CSI."
The brief recaps of scenes earlier in the show that were later expanded to give a better context for later relevations were creative. (That certainly isn't the most stellar sentence I've ever done, but it does make sense if you watched the show.)
One last item: loved seeing Wendy Simms in the field. The writers should do more with her; he has an incredibly appealing personality. And such adorable dimples when she smiles! Sorry. Moving on.
"Don't eat the evidence!" — Now one of my favorite CSI lines.
COUPLE RANDOM FANBOY THOUGHTS: • Tonight's "Brave and the Bold" was nothing short of terrific. Loved the twist of roles. Did you notice we not only had the first (kinda) appearance of The Joker, but also the first mention of The Riddler? How about that shot of the Batmobile heading into the hidden Batcave entrance?
• NIGHTWING came to a close with issue 153. I hope there'll be a copy left when I get to the comic book store (whenever that will be).
• Got my advance copy of the "Wonder Woman" animated DVD (in stores Tuesday). What a treat to get for Friday sport nights at the Reflector. It was all I could not to find the nearest DVD player immediately. Can't wait to watch it. It's been getting REALLY good buzz.
• This one's for Tess (and the DC film fans): George Eads — that's Nick for you CSIers — for Green Lantern. He's definitely got the intense Hal Jordan vibe thing going.
