The Vast Wasteland

Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

A Stolen Funny

Nope, I'm not above ripping off other people's content for my bloggy.

Go here to read Powazek's "The Subliminal Reassurances of Procedural Dramas."

Some highlights:

Bones: Don't worry, if you get killed and all that's left of you are your bones, a brilliant but socially awkward woman and a vampire with a soul will solve the crime using a combination of 3D imaging and sexual tension. (Mmmmm...Angel)

Cold Case: Don't worry, if you died a long time ago, a malnourished woman in blue light will catch the bad guy through the power of flashbacks. (Bwa ha ha!)

Law and Order: Don't worry, if you're shot and killed in New York, old, grumpy, alcoholic detectives will stand over you drinking coffee and they'll make at least one pun. After a half hour, your killer will be handed over to an old, grumpy, alcoholic district attorney with an astoundingly beautiful assistant who will bring them to justice...unless it's sweeps, then they might lose or get hit by a car or something.

Happy Friday, my kittens.

Veronica Mars: Don't worry, if are a confused teen not sure about what the parents are up to, hire a fellow outcast who has a pixie smile, gadgets to make Q jealous, and social engineering skills to have a Harrier jumpjet in her driveway in 24 hours. Of course, what she discovers will be far worse than you'll ever imagine, and it will somehow shift the universe dangerously over her blonde head.

CSI: Don't worry if you were violently gunned down while chain smoking in a casino blowing your last Social Security check on nickel slots. A swing shift supervisor with an addiction to Botox, a punked out lab rat and a guy whocares more for bugs than people will take fingernail scrapings and match your killers DNA. And as a bonus, those you nver knew will see juicy, up-close, examples of your bullet's exit wound!
