Today’s fab five is about TV shows. I had fun with your responses when I recently talked about White Collar, I thought is would be fun to chat about some other shows. My hubby and I try to have 1 hour of down time that we spend together each night. Thanks to DVR’s we can watch one of our favorite shows and the news in that hour.
A lot of the shows we use to watch were no longer on so we were looking for some new ones to watch this last fall. The first one we started watching is Person on Interest on CBS. The show is considered a “crime thriller. The two main Characters are Finch and Reese. Finch is a billionaire who invented a program to predicts people who will be involved in a violent crime based on patterns. The people the machine predicts could be the cause of the crime or the victim. Reese is a former CIA agent that is presumed dead but ends up crossing paths with Finch. The two end up teaming up and using their skills to stop these possible future violent crimes. Reese, who is played by Jim Caviezel, reminds me of a modern day Clint Eastwood in the role.
Next up is Unforgettable also on CBS. Poppy Montgomery plays the character Carrie Wells. Poppy has gorgeous red hair and guns that I envy. Her character Carrie has a rare condition where she remembers everything. She can replay anything in her life in her mind except for the details of her sister’s death. She ends up becoming a detective for for NYPD and uses her gift to help solve crimes.
Body of Proof is another good one we found on ABC. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) use to be an outstanding neurosurgeon but after an injury from an auto accident she is forced to give up surgery. She moves over to the Medical Examiners office to to use her knowledge to solve medical mysteries.
A Gifted Man filled my void from Medium being taken off the air. Michael Holt is an outstanding surgeon and is very career and money driven. His life is changed after his ex-wife Anna is hit by a car and killed. He is soon roped into helping a clinic she ran and begins to get visits from her. Is Michael loosing his mind or is Anna’s spirit there to help?
Last is a show that has been around a bit, Fringe (found on Fox). I do enjoy some science fiction. This show explores the idea of parallel universes and what would happen if someone from another universe did something to alter the other universe. Walter, Olivia, and Peter (Joshua Jackson – he’s a cutie) help solve the mysteries of the strange events occurring as part of “The Fringe” division with the government. I am a big fan of JJ Abrams and he is the creator this show.
