I had asked C.I. if there was anything I was missing because I had not found one drama I enjoyed in the fall season.
Poppy plays police woman Carrie. She's not just a police officer, she's haunted by the death of her sister. Her mother, by the way, has Alzheimer's while Carrie has something completely different: Total recall.
Let me explain. You invite her to dinner. She steps into your kitchen and looks around for ten or so seconds. Later you can't remember where you left your medicine. And you say that. She's able to go back to those ten or so seconds in the kitchen and see everything that she saw when she was there, in great detail.
Dylan Walsh is good as her co-worker, boss and ex-boyfriend.
Jane Curtain just joined the show as a medical examiner and she's great, but you know that. Jane Curtain's always great.
I don't think she's ever been bad in anything. She may be one of the few performers to appear on SNL as a regular who can claim that: She was never bad even in bad skits.
So that's a great asset to the show. I haven't seen tonight's yet. I did the Tivo. But this will be Jane Curtain's second episode. I'm eager to see this.
Frank/Sparky/Lester is probably on. Last week ended with that man having been caught. He was shooting people. And through detective work, they found out he was killing guys he'd been in a reform school with as a teen. They were able to stop the murders but the killer ended up dead. So they were feeling good and the show was winding down.
Uh, that killer? His body? Phone number carved in. Carrie calls it and it's the killer. He's played them completely.
This is a lot of fun to watch and it's such an interesting premise.
Poppy Morgan's great in it too.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
