Hot British Sniper

For those of you who don't know, I am a HUGE crime show buff.  Dork.  Loser.  Whatever you want to call me, I don't care, because I L-O-V-E my crime shows.

I watch Law & Order (SVU is my favorite, and the seasons of the original with Jessie L. Martin and Chris Noth).  CSI, naturally.  NY is my favorite on that front, but I have some serious love for Horatio Caine.  My younger sister is a red-head and every time she sees David Caruso with those sunglasses she puts a fist in the air and says, "GINGER. POWER."  I need to watch the original; I haven't gotten to it yet.  How crazy is that???

Shades of Justice.

But perhaps my favorite crime show of all is Criminal Minds.  There isn't a single character on that show I dislike (unless I'm supposed to dislike them; point being, all the characters are fantastically written), and the episode plots never fail.  Some crime shows fall into a pattern, but I've found Criminal Minds to be consistently surprising and unpredictable, as well as just plain riveting.  If you don't watch it... watch it.

A lot of you probably know that there's now a Criminal Minds spin-off called Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior.  Only one episode has aired (in addition to the introductory episode in season 5 of the original show), but I fully plan to adore every moment of this show, not only because I trust the writers and producers explicitly, but because of this:

Hot British Sniper

No, go ahead.  Click that image and make it bigger.  That, my dear readers, is Mick Rawson, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior's hot British sniper.  I'm not even kidding.

I would like to take this moment to thank the creators of CM for supplying me with a hot british sniper to watch and admire every week.  Not to mention, he is on a gritty, hard-core crime show that takes no prisoners and holds no punches.  If you're into either of those things, check out Suspect Behavior, and its predecessor.

Love to all,

You may have heard of my obsession with the show Sherlock via a mutual friend, but I highly recommend it if you're into crime shows. The premise is Sherlock Holmes in the 21st century, and it was written by total Holmes nerds, so there are in-jokes galore. Sherlock is played by the delicious, obscenely talented Benedict Cumberbatch. His pricey wardrobe is basically a supporting character. The show is only 3 90min episodes, but each is like a movie, and the ending of the last episode is one of the greatest (most awful, most wonderful) cliff-hangers in TV history. Thankfully THANKFULLY there's more coming this autumn. So if you haven't checked it out yet, you have to. Your whole family will love it.

Best thing yet? Cumberbatch is a ginger out of character. http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/sLIrbWbA360/National+Lottery+Awards+2010+Arrivals/qFzIJvCaPlP/Benedict+Cumberbatch *nods* :D

Maybe you haven't watched the show but he is Welsh. Calling him British is pretty much an insult!

Right you are haha! I actually did know that, just didn't think about it way back when I posted this I guess. Lol, apologies to Mick Rawson/Matt Ryan!
