    What’s up with CSI Miami, one week it came on an hour after it was supposed to. Numb3rs was showing on the guide but CSI Miami was on.

    The following week it came on maybe 20 minutes after the hour so anyone who DVR’d the programs got screwed. Wouldn’t be so bad if I had been home to watch, but I had to DVR it and missed it because of there screw up.

    VERY Disapointed that Ghost Whisperer was cancelled. One of the very few programs I actually watched. A real “feel good” show.
    I’m tired of all the reality tv!!!

    Have got to say… CBS has the strongest fall line-up! All my favs! Never miss NCIS, CSI: Miami, The Good Wife, CSI, Blue Bloods, plus the Monday sitcom line-up is fantastic too. All a bunch of winners!!!

    I really liked ghost whisperer! never really cared for medium, so i’m disappointed that gw was cancelled while allowing medium to stay.

    I can’t help liking the Mentalist even though something strange has happened. I was in the middle of a research project on Julius Caesar and when I sat down at night to watch tv, there was the same story, same details on the Mentalist! At first I thought I was going nuts, but now I have had months to go over all the info and they’re definitely telling a story about Julius Caesar and his kids.

    I have posted a few articles trying to explain the connections and background, probably too much for most people to grasp because it took me a year to get used to the idea, but not so crazy when you think that Bruno Heller was only two seasons into a planned five years of ROME when it was cancelled. I am basically convinced that he shifted his blueprints onto a crime show. Which would be fine, except that the stuff he is telling about them is shocking. And it has HUGE implications. I can’t believe a charming and intelligent tv show could end up being an awful reminder of the worst the world has to offer.

    Anyway, as a way to start making the world a better place, I’m taking a big risk and predicting the entire third season. Think of it as the Olympics of spoilers. If I’m right, and if people follow along and see how they use symbolism, maybe there will be an outrage or something and we can get this theme out of tv shows and movies for good, because it is everywhere! I seriously thought I was going crazy at first, but now I’ve learned that it is a 2000-year-old tradition, and many tv shows and movies must have producers and writers from the same families keeping the tradition alive.

    Feel free to copy and post any of the articles or information from my blog. The more people who are aware of it before the season starts, the more of an impact it could make.

    Remaking the old shows is a waste. I definitley will not e watching Hawaii 5-0 or Defenders. No use starting to watch them now, only to have them cancelled later on in the season or next season.
    Looking forward to return drama shows such as Criminal Minds, CSUI Vegas & NY, as well as Medium & Mentalist. Also some of the return comedies I’m looking forward to as well, such as Two & 1/2 Men, Big Bang, & Rules of Engagement. And of course Reality in Survivor & Amazing Race. It will be so nice to have something to watch on TV again.
