Thanks, Drucifer!

For the shows that Mrs. Tibber and I watch, there are no real surprises, even about the shows on the bubble at this point.

I thought we might hear more about NCIS: Red, but that likely is coming in the announcements of new shows.

Peace,

Good. I do really like this show. This is sort of my "House" replacement for the time being.

I guess I see that. Both have central characters that are annoying as well as brilliant. But it seems to end there.

Whenever I see Watson or the Captain or Detective Bell getting annoyed I find that amusing. Whenever House did something annoying I just wanted to punch him. Holmes does nothing out of meanness, while House was just mean for the sake of being mean, to everybody.

Holmes has a social component that makes him annoying but it stems from his process and is not really meant to be annoying, and which he really does not have all that much control over, while House is just a jackass; unlike Holmes he has the ability to soften the edges of what he does that is annoying, but he choses not to, because, he's just a jackass. He enjoys annoying people and takes perverse pleasure in being annoying, on purpose because he needs to feel superior.

In real life, Holmes would get away with his behavior, but I think House would get accidentally nudged down an elevator shaft.

It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

I couldn't agree more. I quit House long ago because he was such a jack ass. The plot lines could not overcome my distaste for House.
