It still astounds me at the number of murder mystery shows always on TV. I am glad to see things like Elementary and Hannibal since they add a level of personality and setting to what was a genre dominated by Law and Order and CSI. Is it a case of copycats all over the industry or is a lack of imagination the cause...or both? No matter what I would like to see some different takes on the genre or abandon it already.
What To Watch
NBC 8pm: Community has found its stride again and it's all thanks to Chang. I hope it all leads up to something over the top and ridiculous as is the tradition with Community. However, somehow besting a plot line that ended with the dean being replaced and the school turned into a dictatorship will be hard to manage.
|2. The Big Bang Theory|
CBS 8pm: If for some reason you don't like Community (you monster!) but do want to laugh there is always Big Bang Theory. Tonight's episode guest stars Bob Newhart as a TV personality who hosted a science show Sheldon watched when he was younger. I wonder if younger audiences will get Newhart's understated comedy since he hasn't been on TV in years.
NBC 10pm: Copycat murders cause Jack to reach out to Hannibal for help with his grief. I really hope NBC can take shows like this, that are well liked, and not mess them up. How easy would it be to have Jack start training a young detective named Clarice?
CBS 10pm: Anyone enjoying this show? I've heard mixed reviews so far but I do enjoy some Sherlock Holmes from time to time and the modern setting could help to freshen up the characters and plots.
