    I had to look her up because she looks about 20 in that picture! Wow! 44 and amazing-looking! damn!

  2. Stuart says:

    YES YES YES! Mira has the chops to pull this off. She’s good in comedic roles, as well as serious roles. And we all know she can even do action! I hope this works out. CBS procedurals tend to do very well. Fingers crossed.

    More crime dramas coming? Can’t we have a break from them for a change. We have seen too many failures these past couple of years and this is why. They all sound promising but then they just flat-line.

  4. Ken says:

    I agree. She’s a good actress, yeah, but i agree there are too many crime dramas for my taste. May I ask what kind of programming you would like to see more of?

    Sounds boring. Do we really need so many cop dramas?!

    I hope she wears thongs in it

    She’s wearing a cop uniform in it and looks damn amazing. She is also the most professional and sincere person I have met. Oh yeah and brains to match her gorgeous looks.If anyone can pull this cop drama off, it will be Mira Sorvino.
