Currently, the American version of 'Prime Suspect' is struggling in the ratings. I figure it's a combination of too much deviation from the style of the British original, and also the TV audience can't see what's so special about a female cop in an all-male environment. And I agree on that last point - what's the big deal after the headway made by the women in 'Cagney & Lacey' and in 'Decoy'?
Here's an episode of that old chestnut starring Beverly Garland:
I'm all for anything with Bert Freed, one of the unsung supporting players in Toobworld and the original Lt. Columbo on TV....
As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."
I'm just "The Man Who Viewed Too Much", and "Inner Toob" is a blog exploring and celebrating the 'reality' of an alternate universe in which everything that ever happened on TV actually takes place.
Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
Remember: "The more you watch, the more you've seen!"
