    Count me as one of the few who apparently likes this show. Just my luck.

    That is why there are so many shows to fit the likes of such a wide variety of likes.

    When I was a kid I liked Horror shows, now I will not watch one at all.

    While I've been watching it, I haven't like any of the show characters. So it wont be missed by me.

    I'm surprised when any show in the CBS 10PM slot on Sunday night survives, at least here on the East Coast. I'm pretty sure a third of the first nine Battle Creek starts were delayed, due to sports overruns.

    I'm gonna miss it. Thought it was reasonably well done. It worked for me, maybe because it isn't nearly as hokey or predictable as other shows, plus a pretty good supporting cast. I always like a who-done-it or a good why-they-done-it, especially when it's harder for me to predict what happens next.

    (Of course, the one thing that was predictable is that the Russ Agnew character is gonna be a **** to almost everyone, at some point. But I like almost anything that Winters is in, and this is no exception.)

    I, too, am going to blame the CBS Sunday night "death" slot.

    I think this week's episode was a good example of that. Enjoyed it.

    I think you put your finger on it. In this show, a procedural, there always seems to be a left turn somewhere. They solve a case to find that they really didn't solve it. They corner and release a perp then find out later he really was guilty. Their plot intricacies are second only to Castle.

    Russ's crush on Holly is just precious, too. Dean Winters is one of my favorite actors, all the way back to OZ. And he has a great cast to work with.

    One of the problems with CBS being as powerful and successful as it is, is that great shows like this one and Golden Boy always fail to launch, because CBS is too tunnel-visioned by stuff like Cyber. I blame them, and the time slot (which The Good WIfe seems to have prevailed and even flourished in), but I also blame viewers for not giving shows like this a chance.

    The short version: Nobody watched. CBS didn't help. The end.

    Plot, schmot. Just keep Holly (Aubrey Dollar) on the screen and I'm happy ...

    Before Angie Harmon struck series gold with the unwatchable Rizzoli & Isles, she and Aubrey D headlined a 4-female ensemble procedural in 2007 known as Women's Murder Club. Even though a little too dating angst-centric, it was a much better show (R&I sets a pretty low bar, after all), and Aubrey has been missing from regular network TV ever since (well, at least we missed her).

    But the most interesting thing, and I have no evidence at all to confirm this, is that the cop shop set from this show, once the show was unceremoniously flushed after 13 eps, then mysteriously reincarnated stick-for-stick, as the cop shop set for Castle.

    I loved Women's Murder Club. I also read all the books.

    Burned two episodes tonight, well, last night. Previews indicated next week is the Season Final Episode. VERY final unless somebody else picks it up. I'm really enjoying this as the characters are developing and filling out extra dimensions.
