I love Columbo!
Not worried, I was confused. However, I think Rob's post probably cleared up my confusion.
I agree, but when you consider that House was essentially Sherlock Holmes in a medical environment and that Greg House was based off Holmes, it's not really surprising.
And of course Arthur Conan Doyle based Holmes on a Scottish physician in the first place.
Find all the writers, tattoo this in reverse and forwards (like "ambulance") on their foreheads so they see it everytime they see each other or look in a mirror:
NO ROMANCE (or any kind of sex) BETWEEN HOLMES AND WATSON!!! EVER!!!
We now return you to your reguarly scheduled rant.
Then you'll be glad to read this
What was said there was how many people wanted to watch ONLY for the relationship.
Excellent news, although I don't understand why people thing Miller is attractive.
And I think doing away completely with the "Dragon Lady" thing is why Liu is attractive here.
But let's leave the characters as squabbling siblings who slowly get to know each other and develop a platonic friendship.
Besides, Adler is supposed to be the only woman ever where he's concerned.
And that the showrunners said it will never happen.
I predict a plot line where they have to pretend to be romantically involved, and they will do so (somewhat grudgingly).
That's the obligatory "let's pretend we're married so we can go undercover" storyline. Monk/Sharona (or her replacement, or maybe both of 'em), Bones/Booth, Castle/Beckett have all done it. Not sure about Jane/Lisbon. I think they've even done it in Perception with the guy and the FBI agent. Good for a laugh or two but a worn out plot device.
Person of Interest had this plot recently. It was amusing though.
I think I had to look him up on imdb at least twice (after seeing an ep at someone else's house, then when I started watching myself) for it to finally stick in my brain where I knew him from
He seemed *so* familiar. It's just another one of those foreigners stealing our jobs!!! heh heh
I hope it wasn't Lost guy and Jesus guy.
The nerve of those people hiring a guy from the UK to play an Englishman!
Watching and enjoying this. It took a few episodes to grow on me but I find intrigued.
Tony/Ziva on NCIS... you are so right. And this *is* an old worn theme. I'm pretty sure I recall this on an episode of Remington Steele with Remington Steele/Laura Holt, and even Lois Lane/Clark Kent did it in Superman II. I have to believe it was used in early TV and early Movies too. Assuming this started in literature, who was the first to pen this gift that just keeps on giving?
Shakespeare must have used it, although nothing pops into my head at the moment...
But in my experience, most of today's tired old clichés can be found in Shakespeare.
