In her latest post at the excellent and informative It's a Crime! (or a mystery) crimefic reader discusses her purchase of her first DVD boxed set; the US TV series NCIS [Naval Criminal Investigation Service]. There is also a link to the long discussion on Petrona about the series star Mark Harmon, who obviously has made an impression on the "ladies who blog".
Therefore I thought I would feature one of my favourite US TV series, that not only had the exciting Roseanne Barr, but in the first series a very young George Clooney.
I think that as well as the crisp sharp comedy there was a lot of social comment in this series about life in small town America. The struggles of these "blue collar" working families were just so different from the usual Dallas and Dynasty image that television and films potrayed. It was a breath of fresh air.
But like many TV shows after a few seasons the scripts deteriorated, and it fell away and become just another run of the mill comedy series.
