It's this time of the year again - nasty comments about popular TV - flame ahead!  
The TV fall season is coming around and I fail to be excieted. I'm confused at the most. TV currently doesn't rate very high on the Illman-scale of priorities. But loving lists, I made one anyway this season:

TV-(fandoms - as in so far that I read fic on occassion):
Stargate SG1 - mainly because I've been watching since the beginning
Stargate Atlantis - mainly because I like it
Without a Trace - mainly because I still long for 1st season goodness and because Bait rocked

Comicbook(fandom - not, there is no readable fic):

The questionables:
CSI - Grissom is a inept would-be-genius and he isn't even ammusing at that, Sara is immature, Nick's too dumb to have his job (well so is General!Jack, but he has smart people around himself to make up for it)
CSI:M - Horatio balds and lead and leads some more without ever working. He saves the day every time. Everyone is hotter and wears less than in Vegas.
CSI:NY - never seen it, (missed the x-over too) but I can't see the appeal of Gary Sinise(?)
The Dead Zone: I saw an ep as a favour to someone - is this even still on? If so which night of the week?
JoA - great idea for a show, but for me, it didn't progress enough later on, made me want to yell at the screen for Joan to finally get a brain in the late first season. She is too stupid for a realistic teen.
The various LaOs - mainly formualic entertainment with replacable characters, it's not bad though
24 and Alias - will see in January. It should be Crossing Jordan Time then as well, if that didn't get cancelled. I'll take Crossing Jordan over CSI any day.

If anyone has a watchworty show to point out feel free to do so!

Do you mean Crossing Jordan airing over there? Because the 4th season premiere in the US starts this Sunday, in just 3 days. They will have a crossover with Las Vegas this year. Have you ever watched that?

No, I was actually talking about Crossing Jordan over in US. I thought it was going to be like last season. I'm thrilled to hear that it will be starting soon. I have never watched Las Vegas, Is it a crime themed show?

Las Vegas is half crime, half fun. It's set in a Vegas casino and the security team watches out for cheats and scams. It just started it's second season.

To get the best impression of the show you should check out episode 1x22, the HDTV-LOL AVI version. Then the season cliffhanger on 1x23 can quickly put you into the new season 2 episodes. An easy link is this torrent site:


It really is fun. And shiny. And the girl dating Enrique Murciano (Molly Sims) is there. And they have Elvis for theme music. It doesn't get any better.

If you're looking for a breath of fresh air and fun in TV crime shows, this is it.
