I occasionally wonder why a peace loving, non-violent girl like myself gets so much enjoyment from detective novels and TV shows. I think it is to do with the psychology and unravelling of plots. From Sherlock Holmes via Wimsey, Poirot, Morse, Rebus and co via all those 'religious' sleuths [check them out here] I do like to curl up with a cup of tea and a book describing a good murder!
But I also enjoy TV detective programmes, especially some of the American ones. NCIS is great - it has a superb cast, and I have liked Mark Harmon for years [I first noticed him in Moonlighting, then he was in Chicago Hope and West Wing] and of course, David McCallum has been a favourite since the early 1960s and 'The Man From Uncle' [then he was in 'Colditz' and 'Sapphire and Steel'] For a man of 77, he wears pretty well!
However we do occasionally find the plotlines a little far-fetched and the things they manage to do with technology just a tad over-the-top.
The other week we were watching one episode, and Bob declared "I have seen the Mythbusters programme based on this very same accidental-death-scenario"
I was greatly amused therefore, to come across these two items recently. Sorry - if you do not watch CSI, these will mean nothing to you. if you are a fan, I hope they make you smile too!
First up, a pie-chart
And then a story-board
I really shouldn't do these Internet quizzes though - in 'which NCIS character are you?' I came out as Abby.
Yeah, right, me, a Goth with a tattoo on her neck? [but I have got the biker boots, and a fondness for computer geeks]
