That's what I was in last night. This should not have been the case as [profile] jebra and I watched two episodes of Midsomer Murders and I knit about four feet's worth of scarf for the National World War II Museum. And I was no more behind on my email or house cleaning than I normally am. After Midsomer I watched some real life crime thing (that made so little of an impression I can't even tell you what it was) and then the season opener of L&O:SVU. I think that's what prompted my fury. I expected the episode to suck, especially when the description indicated it would be somewhat based on the allegations concerning Dominique Strauss-Kahn, but I wasn't expecting Stabler's absence to throw me off so much. I kept expecting to see him or, at a minimum, hear him talking with Olivia on the telephone. I seem to recall numerous interviews with CM in which he said that Stabler would leave the show in a way that was true to his character. MH gave a good performance with the exception of the very end. I can believe her crying (and wanting to jump right in to the next case), but I had to agree with [profile] jebra (who walked in just as the episode was wrapping up) that she was acting more as if he'd died than he'd quit the NYPD.

I probably would have coped with the episode had I not discovered after watching that by watching I missed the season opener of CSI. I predict the demise of L&O this season, which is somewhat of a pity as I think the new people might have what it takes to revive the show -- but I don't think they'll be able to compete with CSI if that is going down the road I think that it is.

Are you on the new Barnaby on MM yet, or still on the old one?

If you like MM, I assume you are also up to date with (Inspector) Lewis?

Still the old Barnaby -- we're getting them on DVD from the library and their collection only goes up to Set 18 (Small Mercies, The Creeper, and The Great and the Good). I'm hoping that now that they have their funding back, the library will order a copy of everything that is available.

As for Lewis, the third episode of the 4th season (The Mind Has Mountains) aired on PBS last night. I thought this was the second episode of the season, but when I looked up Lewis a minute ago (I couldn't remember which season we were seeing) I discovered we have been cheated out of Wild Justice, which was pre-empted by special programming. Grrrrr.

Have a look at many of the sites for Midsomer here:

We've walked through quite a few of them.

I started watching SVU, but it made me start feeling really bad, so after about 10 minutes, I switched to CSI. I hate Ted Danson's character. He's a jerk. He treats Nick badly, and Nick doesn't deserve that. He makes Catherine feel like a failure, and although I don't like her very much, she doesn't deserve to be demoted.

I guess we're supposed to grow to love him.

And after watching it, I didn't feel as lousy as I was feeling during those 10 minutes SVU was on.

And CSI is one of the shows CBS usually streams online, so you should be able to watch it anytime.

Did you watch either one this week? I traded SVU for CSI -- and felt bored the entire episode. The next day I read the comments on the SVU live-blogging comm and concluded I should have stuck with SVU. *sigh*

I actually forgot to watch both when they were one, so I've finally just caught up.

SVU was a really good episode. I agree with you that CSI was very mediocre.

And I still don't like Ted Danson's character.
