I was really looking forward to the fall season. Revenge — I love me a good revenge story. Prime Suspect — I like Maria Bello, too, and loved the teaser where the little boy of a murdered woman touches Bello’s gun and says he would kill the man who did it, and Bello replies, “I would help.”A new season of Blue Bloods, NCIS, Law & Order with one of my favorite actresses, Kelli Giddish, and — of course! — Harry’s Law.
So far, my response has been nyah. Revenge is okay, but not enough that I make a point of seeing it. Prime Suspect totally lost me in the 2nd episode. Sorry, Maria, will wait for your next show. I haven’t been able to watch an entire episode of NCIS, but Blue Bloods is still good.
My biggest disappointment is Harry’s Law. Where’s Jenna? Malcolm? Damian? Rachel? Where are the shoes that were such a hoot? Who are these new people and why are they taking up Adam’s and Tommy’s screen time? How does the same woman who played sweet Charlene on Designing Women pull off the total-bitch-I-want-her-gone DA so well? It’s still been fairly good, but everything/one that made me love it in the first place is gone or playing a minimal role, except Harry herself. I want the old crew and the old cases.
At least Criminal Minds brought back AJ and Emily. Someone in Hollywood is doing something right.
