I just watch it a lot. I just never got into NCIS, it seems to be sort of popular though.

What I mean is that every time I see a L&O episode, from any of the spin-offs, sub-series, or the main series, I feel like shooting myself. They're so depressing and sad. Not to mention that they're basically similar to all crime-drama shows ever. Personally I dislike NBC crime shows.

CBS on the other hand, alongside USA Network, have done spectacular jobs with crime tv shows! They give them personality, character, a lot of "Umph" if you will ;p

    She hates people acting like that towards her on the internet, have some respect!

    I swear, i'm a crime drama junkie.
    CSI, CSI Miami, CSI Vegas, NCIS, Law & Order, White Collar, Lie To Me, Hawaii Five-O, Life, Criminal Minds, Bones, Murder, She Wrote, Matlock, Perry Mason, should I go on?
    Maybe I watch/read to much crime drama/mystery...

    That's just going to go along with the subject matter and the way the shows carry themselves. I think they have to walk this fine line between dramatic and over the top - which is why I don't like any of the CSI shows, they always struck me as over the top.

    I do love USA shows though! Most of the time. My favorite is Royal Pains, and I think White Collar was a pretty good show in its first two seasons and now it just sort of disappoints me whenever I watch.

    Disagree. Abby pushes all my buttons, especially the "LOOK AT ME I'M SO ~~~QUIRKY~~~" one. Tbh I don't even know any of the other characters...XD Like I would probably be able to recognize them but not name any of them lmao.

    USA Network shows. Burn Notice. White Collar.
    Their god damn slogan is Characters Welcome. I mean...
    Why does White Collar disappoint you again? ;-;

      You know me :P I think part of the thing that bothers me though is Abby is supposed to be like a super-genius with 4 degrees or something, right? And in her 20s. Her actress actually is like Abby with the degrees and genius, but it took her well into her 40s to do all that. It's like, being amazing and smart wasn't good enough for the writers, they had to write her as 20 years younger too. XDX;

        @TF:
        Elementary is fantastic!
        And that's coming from somebody who's practically a Sherlock Holmes puritan.

        @Toujours:
        There actually are people out there that are super genius' like that, albeit very few.
        If anything that'd make me like her character even more, the fact that the actress is actually so intelligent, but I can see you point.

        Okay, i'm gonna go before I try to start a Sherlock Holmes conversation. .-.

        I've heard of all those shows, in fact Elementary only started airing on Australian TV in February.

        However I'm not all that a sucker for crime shows. It's just not my genre. I did watch some of Law & Order in the past though, but only the intro lol.

          I've never been much for the crime shows, although I grew up watching almost all of them. I havn't seen Elementary yet. I'm not sure if I every could objectively considering I'll be constantly trying to compare it to Sherlock (BBC), which I consider a masterwork.

          Specifically crime shows, haha...

          I loooved Law and Order SVU for so long. But then one season everything changed and all my favorite people left or scaled back their appearances so I was like "what's the point???" and stopped watching.

            Perhaps the color of blood.

            My hair was green once! It was really fun and I liked doing it but I'm lazy and don't want to put forth the effort to dye roots over and over again.

            I used Light'ning gel to lighten my hair from a brunette to a blonde. It really does look nicer with my bangs and whatnot XD

            Other than that, I know that actual hair 'dye' damages your hair follicles over time. High school chicks who like to go brunette then blonde then redhead every month will (I guarantee you) have their hair fall out in their forty's. lol

            I've never used hair die at all, I'm fine with my hair color. I used to know a guy in school that died his hair periodically. He went from black hair to red to blonde. I dont think I would ever bleach my hair( it's really dark)

              Some people are like why don't you dye your hair since I've got a lot of gray. I'm like ...eh, don't want to have to do it all the time.

              Dying your hair makes you look like a Yu-Gi-Oh character.

                That's... an interesting way of putting it. . .

                I've never dyed my hair before, but if I were to it'd be either red, or black.
                I guess i'm fine with my dark blonde color, but if I were to do a rock show then i'd probably dye it.

                  I am kinda considering bleaching mine, it's currently a sandy/dirty blonde even though I used to be a bleach blonde. I kinda want to go back to that.

                  Guys can go gray, so it's fine for you. It's women that have to dye their hair once it starts graying. XD
