The Mentalist - Simon Denny can get ****. He's rubbish and one of the things on my bucket list to to spray paint over his hollywood star with Simon Denny
NCIS is not ok, it's effin awful - I just spend the entire episode wanting to crack the the lead character"Gibbs" over the head with a cricket bat. And that genious "goth" girl who is a whizz on a computer is not too far behind. Terrible show. The more complicated the crime is to solve, the quicker Gibbs is to solve it with a 5 second "ding ding" brain moment and always only after the obvious leads have dried up.
Agree with you on Simon Denny though- smug, arrogant twat who should have been sent packing after A Country Practice.
Michael wins the thread though, with CSI Miami. David Caruso is surely taking the piss with his character Horatio Caine . Worst TV cop in the history of tv, and thats including 'Tom Croydon" from Blue Heelers and the smartest man in the world, the know-it-all "Goren" from Law and Order. I work with a bloke just like him, only he is mostly wrong.
Best TV cop ever is a 3 way toss up between Hank from Breaking Bad, Sipowitz from NYPD Blue and Bunk from The Wire. Can't split them. If I was Oskar Pistorius, I would probably least want Hank leading the investigation against me, however, Bunk (despite his drinking problems) and Sipowitz would get the job done too.
