Second Sight (BBC)

Been watching this BBC crime drama series about (described on netflix as “absorbing”…eeehhh…not really all that absorbing) -Det. Ross Tanner, played by Clive Owen back before he had giant white caps put on his teeth, is going blind because of some weird eye disease thing.  Aren’t we a bit tired of all the different gimicks writers use to make the detective story “fresh”?  —The crimes in this series are fairly easy to figure out ahead of time and not very interesting….Clive is the only thing really making it worth while to follow….but I tell you, if you want a BBC crime drama, check out Wire in the Blood.

Wire in the Blood (finished series)

Was a great series.  Sad to be done with it.  I hope they give us a season 7 one of these days.  Dr. Tony Hill was one of my favorite TV characters.  And I learned a bit about psy profiling.  I didn’t care as much about the who done it of the crimes as much as I enjoyed watching Tony figure it all out using psychology.

Wire in the Blood –Season 4

I’ve finished season 4 and if not for my total love of the character Dr.Hill and the drool factor for the actor who plays him (Robson Green), I wouldn’t have watched this season out of spite!  They took Carol off….the flirtations between Dr.Hill and Carol were great and I am pissed they dropped that storyline.

WIREPOSTER

BBC — crime drama show….it’s awesome.  I, like everybody else who discusses this show, have a little crush on Dr. Hill.  I like this show almost as much as I liked Prime Suspect.  It’s that kind of show that makes you wish you were a criminal psychologist or detective.
