Sofia Curtis does a reprise too [Spoiler Alert]

As if we had enough of former CSI cast reprising their roles on the show another former regular cast  Louis Lombard will reprise her role as Sofia Curtis now a deputy chief on the upcoming remaining episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

More about this story here....

Lady Heather is back on CSI

If Gil Grissom's brief appearance was exciting, CSI episode 19 entitled "Unleashed" will feature the once loved dominatrix now a professional psychiatrist Dr. Heather Kessler or as we know her as Lady Heather played by the lovely Melinda Clarke. What make this episode a bit more exciting on my part is the initial tension that has brought in when Sara Sidle and Dr. Raymond Langston interviewed (Lady Heather,  I mean) Dr. Kessler regarding a case to which she is involved. 

Another thing that makes this episode more interesting was Heather's help on how Dr. Langston can catch serial psycho "The Dick & Jane Killer" Nate Haskell. Lady Heather sure has a thing for the show's main protagonist (albeit in a non-romantic way).

Breakout Kings and White Collar added to my list

Here's a new twist to my TV series show that I have been watching as of late. I have been watching police procedural shows that pertains to a more "conventional" methods of catching the bad guys. And now I have two new shows to add my "TV Shows to watch" bucket list and these are Breakout Kings and White Collar. The  theme of this shows are basically federal agencies are using the unconventional methods of catching criminals by using the same criminals in exchange for reduced prison sentence and/or avoid solitary confinement  altogether. 

White Collar is a USA Network television series created by Jeff Eastin, starring Matt Bomer as con-man Neal Caffrey and Tim DeKay as Special Agent Peter Burke. It premiered on October 23, 2009. On September 27, 2010, the USA Network renewed White Collar for a third season with 16 new episodes. The show's main protagonist Neal Caffrey a con-man, forger and thief, is captured after a three-year game of cat and mouse with the FBI. With four months left while serving a four-year sentence, he escapes from a maximum-security federal prison to find Kate, his ex-girlfriend. Peter Burke, the FBI agent who initially captured Caffrey, finds him at a dead end in his search and returns Caffrey to prison. This time, Caffrey gives Burke information about evidence in another case; however, this information comes with a price: Burke must have a meeting with Caffrey. At this meeting, Caffrey proposes a deal: he will help Burke catch other criminals as part of a work-release program. Burke agrees, after some hesitation. Through the successful apprehending of several white-collar criminals, Caffrey has proven to Burke that he will help him, and that he will not try to escape again. This begins an unconventional but successful partnership.

Breakout Kings on the other hand is a virtual polar opposite of White Collar in terms of the type of criminals they employed and the methods use to capture is somewhat of "blue collar" and the federal agency in connection are the US Marshals. The story goes like this: In order to catch escaped convicts, a squad of U.S. Marshals makes a special deal with several current prisoners . If they agree to help, their sentences will be reduced by one month and they will be transferred to a minimum-security facility. However, if any of them should try to escape, they will all be returned to their original prisons and their sentences will be doubled. The show premiere last March 6, 2011).

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour Review

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour is CBS's new spinoff of one of their hit TV series Criminal Minds. The new series is almost similar to the main show but this time the group is more of a "rapid response team" called Red Cell and they are reporting directly to the director of FBI. What makes this group differ from the parent series is that they are quick to create profiles and are more direct-to-the-point. This unit is lead by Agent Sam Cooper (played by Forrest Whitaker) his colleagues are Agent Beth Griffin (played by Janeane Garofalo), Agent Jonathan "Prophet" Simms (Michael Kelly), Agent Gina LaSalle (Beau Garrett), Agent Mick Rawson (Matt Ryan) and Tech assistant Penelope Garcia (which is still played by Kirsten Vangsness) rounds up the group. This show is broadcasted right after Criminal Minds
