    I find it so exciting to see what you all are going to be watching.

    • Mel says:

      We can take that two ways. I’m not sure which you meant.
      If you meant it seriously your comment was written correctly.
      If you were being sarcastic it should have been written: “I find it SO exciting to see what you all are going to be watching.”

    • liz says:

    About CSI, the husband is really bummed out Catherine only showed up in video clips. He was disappointed that she did not interact with the team. On the other hand, I was very happy they put on Ironside. I noticed that Clarins was one of the sponsors. I use that face cream, and I cannot figure out why NBC canceled the show. With a sponsor like that, the goal must not have been the ordinary viewing target. I hope they rethink the cancellation.

    • icywinter2 says:

      Ironside had very low ratings, plus the storylines were not that interesting. actually the show bored me, nothing special about this show. I doubt NBC will bring back this show, the show wasn’t on very long to atract fans, so there’s no protest for the network to bring it back..

      Plus the timeslot, and I didn’t see any different between this show and other cop shows. they are all the same basically. I didn’t find the acting to be good either

    luv csi glad to hear nick will be back in november. ironside cancelled already
