CSI: Crime Scene Investigation...

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation If I had a foot fetish and was painting women's toes, I think I'd go for a bright green or maybe a purple. I'm not one to judge someone for liking women's feet (that's probably much more acceptable than what your neighbor is doing right now), but get a little creative with the color at least. Jeez, how boring is generic red? Probably about as boring as this episode, I suppose. Underwhelming compared to the S&M fetish with Lady Heather or the adult baby episode, last night's fetish seemed a bit normal. Now the whole filming-for-reality-TV thing was a unique perspective as we got a chance to look at the show like it was raw footage being filmed, but other than a few blurry shots and cameras moving with the investigators, it didn't enhance any aspe read more

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation...

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation So, according to Sara, charred flesh smells like "burnt pork, but much worse." Having been one of the unlucky people in this world to have smelled burnt flesh before, "much worse" is fine on its own. There is not one time in my years of having a fireplace that I've ever thought of putting anything inside it besides wood and maybe a match or two — certainly not a body, charred or otherwise. Last night we had two people doing it, though — the killer, Martin Sidley, who extends his fireplace around a dying girl, and the girl's father, who steals a scorched body from the morgue and throws it down the chimney. I don't have children yet, so I don’t know what I'd do if my daughter disappeared and I thought I knew who did it. Would I be smart enough to stag read more

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation...

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation I'm a people-watcher. I sit on a bench at the farmers' market, watching the people walk by and wondering what they are thinking at that moment. Like the young lady who grabs that oh-so-perfect purse and thinks to herself, "No one will ever know this is a knockoff." Yes, we will, dear — yes, we will. Some people think I'm crazy, but all I'm doing is harmlessly trying to read the minds of others. That's why I loved last night's episode of CSI. It's all based upon evaluating the mind of what appears to be a normal human being. A few months ago when I saw this episode for the first time, I sat glued to the edge of my seat, waiting for the gruesome discovery of a decomposed body. When no body was found, I guess I kind of felt cheated in some silly read more

I love your column. I just ...

Question: I love your column. I just have a question regarding CBS' schedule for February sweeps. Looking at the current listings, it seems that the majority are reruns. I know that the Olympics are coming up and there will be extra competition. But is this just their way of saving face and not being beat in the ratings during the Olympics, or is this just a strategy to have first-run episodes go against NBC after the Olympics are over? From a first glance at ABC's schedule, they seem to have no problem running new episodes (mind you, there are still a few repeats scattered around their schedule). I figured CBS of all networks, with their current position in the ratings, would want to see how well their shows stack up against the added competition. Also, how does this February sweeps period factor the Olympics into advertising rates? The upcoming ratings for NBC will not accurately portray their actual ratings. Would love to hear your thoughts/comments on CBS' tactics. Thanks. Answer: ... read more

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation...

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation This is my first trip to the Watercooler, and I must say it feels good. For once I can talk about my favorite shows and not be considered a geek. It actually feels like I've got some friends now. I can suppose that's how Grissom feels as well, though his relationship with Lady Heather has seemingly reached crush status at this point. It's great to see Melinda Clarke reprise the role of the sexy dominatrix. This is the third time we've seen her, and each time we get a greater glimpse into the soul of Gil. I know this show is about the cases, but how could getting to know the personal side of William Petersen's character not intrigue you? Maybe it should be another spin-off instead — "The Secret Lives of Gil Grissom" — or something ch read more

FROM DC TO D.C.

Dawson's Creek alum Joshua Jackson is returning to series television, having landed a lead role in CSI exec producer Carol Mendelsohn's CBS pilot about brilliant legal associates at a powerful D.C. law firm. For those keeping score at home: Pacey, TV lawyer; Jen, Oscar nominee; Joey, in gestation with the Scientology messiah; Dawson himself, conspicuously MIA. read more

CSI: Miami scoop?

Up Close with Bones' "Boy" Genius

Eric Millegan, Bones

When Fox's Bones returned from hiatus last Wednesday in its new 9 pm/ET, post-American Idol time slot, the sexy-spooky crime series earned its highest ratings yet. The bad news? It was trounced by the competition — but that's what happens when you're up against Lost and Veronica Mars. Bones' Eric Millegan, though, is taking it in stride. And why not? This small-screen newbie has enjoyed incredible luck, snagging the role of boy-genius assistant Zack but three weeks after arriving in Hollywood for his first pilot season. (Other shows he was eyed by include Threshold and Kitchen Confidential; both now RIP.) In keeping with his good fortune, Millegan is betting Bones will read more

First of all, I look forward ...

Question: First of all, I look forward to reading your insights every Friday and Monday. I wanted to get your opinion on CBS replacing Out of Practice with Courting Alex. I really think that this was a big mistake. The Courting Alex pilot was generic and unfunny, while Out of Practice had steadily been improving each week in quality, but CBS still pulled it off the schedule until March. I don't think Out of Practice is the best sitcom on TV, but it has greatly improved over time and seemed to be doing well in the ratings, too. I also think that Out of Practice is much more compatible with lead-in Two and a Half Men than Alex is. What is your take on this? Will Out of Practice return to Mondays if Courting Alex is a success? Answer: I'm no special fan of Out of Practice, but I agree it has evolved and somewhat improved. Compared to Courting Alex, it's the next Frasier. (Disclosure: I've only seen Alex's pilot episode as of this writing, but it's hard to see any room for improvement ... read more
