I was tidying up my DVD collection and it surprised me that I spent that many hours watching so many TV series. Personally, I like buying compilations of episodes because it allows me to do telethons on boring days like this.
Anyway, I have noticed that most TV programs I have spent countless of days are crime-related. Here’s my top 10.
- Criminal Minds – I have been a loyal companion of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit for five seasons now. The stories never fail to capture my interest. Plus, it’s fun watching Dr. Spence Reid grow up and Derek Morgan play light banters with Garcia. I also love the quotes that start or end an episode.
- The Mentalist – Simon Baker plays a captivating, modern-day Sherlock Holmes who does consults for the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Though his character can be smugly annoying, he is adorable. Have I said that he makes three-piece suits look so hot?
- NCIS – The ever charming Mike Harmon stars in this series. Him, plus the chemistry between Zeva and Tony makes me stay tuned. The stories are not bad either.
- CSI New York – I am a fan of the original CSI but the stories and technology at CSI New York make it funky.
- CSI — This series is never the same without Gil Grissom and his love interest, Sarah, but Nick and Catherine are still there to solve Las Vegas’ crimes.
- CSI Miami – Though it feels like the series is all about Horatio, the budding romance between Eric and Calleigh is something to look forward to.
- NCIS Los Angeles – LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell star in this spin off of NCIS. They’re both eye candies and makes me feel that I am watching a movie in each episode.
- Psych – A light watch. I have two seasons here which I am planning to watch all over again just to keep abreast of what’s been happening to this detective who’s disguising himself as a psychic.
- Without A Trace – You want this team on your case if one of your family members or friends gets kidnapped. It’s a very serious show.
- Cold Case – I love the sound track of this series. I only got hooked to this show when I heard them playing Etta Fitzgerald’s At Last.
So now that I have tidied up my DVD cabinet, let me get back to finding the best acne treatment. I have a pimple on my upper lip and right cheek and I fear that it will be the start of a breakout. Wish me luck!
