I think my new ship is Brass/DB. Seriously, these two have brought the "old guy" camaraderie that left with Grissom back to CSI.

More Tressed thoughts here )

Okay, I was wrong. Some of you DO read my Brass-heavy CSI posts, even if they are completely jumbled, and I thank you very much!

I was feeling a little pissy last night because of comments I was reading on one particular board. They are very quick to crucify Brass, saying how he's on the path to the dark side and being a dirty cop because of his actions in last night's episode. Sure Brass defended the cop suspected of being the murder. The guy was a friend. What's he supposed to do? I guess that makes him bad but what makes Brass truly evil? Brass gives details of what a little girl did when she was given PCP. Her mother gave her this dose and later, when they can prove it, the DA decides against prosecuting it because he said the waters were muddied. After the mother is found dead, Brass says the waters aren't muddied any more. He feels like the mother got what she deserves. But what people didn't talk about was Vartann. Vartann investigated a case where an 8 year old boy was murdered by Kevin Fetzer, the victim found beaten on his birthday cake. Catherine tells Vartann how Fetzer died and he says, "someone beat Kevin Fetzer's face in with an arcade ball? There's some justice in that." Vartann's expression when he says it looked a lot more like satisfaction than remorse. Plus he also says that if Mikey Moran had been his kid, he wouldn’t have waited 20 years to go after the guy. So yeah, neither Vartann nor Brass are sorry to see the murderers get murdered but Brass is evil and dark. Of course Vartann used to be Mr. Lack of Sensitivity but now he's Mr. Perfect because he dated Catherine so he gets to skate. Or better yet, Brass's words, even though Vartann's are the same, have a different meaning because of what Brass did for Ray.

Pisses me off.

My consolation is that I've read a couple of online reviews and none of them put Brass down that path. On the contrary they talk about what a great actor PG is and how it's wearing on Brass to see criminals go free.

I'll state the very obvious. Brass fans have suffered the last two years. We really have. But this episode, along with the last episode. Wow. Just...wow. I never, ever saw that coming.

Last week's episode was kind of meh. This week I couldn't keep the brain's straight but who cares because this episode made me very, very happy.

So Much Brass Goodness )

I'm posting this one for [livejournal.com profile] rook4 who loves Brass but can't watch the show and can't access to the The Jim Brass Forum.

So, not much Brass in this episode. Actually, I think he was an afterthought. PG is looking great this season (makes it kind of obvious that he was unwell over the last year and a half) so to have him show up in the last 10 minutes was a complete waste of a very cute man and a huge presence on the show.Plus, after two years of bitching about his hair, I'm finally happy with it again.

Someone on another board said that PG wants a lighter workload but the fans still want to see him in an episode so this was a nice compromise. I disagree. "CSI Down" was a nice compromise. This was nothing more than a Brass drive-by appearance. I get that he might want a lighter workload after commuting coast to coast for 11 seasons but I hope it isn't lighter than the last two seasons because then he would be invisible. I really hope they don't piss him away this season and then he leaves without any kind of send off.

Personally, I think what this episode missed was Brass with the CSIs at the side show. Seeing his reaction to some of the freaks would have been priceless.

Best line of the show? Nick calling Jim, Jimbo.

I am really loving CSI again! If you stopped watching because it became the Super!Ray show, then you should tune in again. Grissom isn't back and Sara isn't always in every episode but the humor is back, the characters (and actors) seem like they're enjoying themselves again, and D.B. is quirky enough that I can watch even if Brass is AWOL. Plus, Brass' hair is nearly an inch long, which is much better than the barely there cut he had the past two seasons.

If you're not watching CSI, you're missing a return to greatness. Tonight's episode is seriously that good.

Those shrooms in your office aren't medicinal, are they )
bunchofgrapes: (Brass - um yeah)
I haven't enjoyed a CSI episode this much in at least a couple of years.

Definitely liking the new guy and the return of Brass' hair )

Yeah, yeah, I know I need to write up all the details to last weekend but I came back and work has been a bitch (no surprise), Caps game last night, Caps game tomorrow night, and I have to drive up to Philly at a time that I don't believe is allowed on a weekend. Plus, it's daylight savings this weekend and losing that hour always puts me in a crappy mood. I will say though that I was so looking forward to tonight's CSI episode because I get to see Paul and it brought back all the awesomeness that was Sunday night.

Wow, just a few more days of blogging to go. I'd like to say I'll continue past the end of November but I know I won't. Maybe I'll take it up again in February.

For all the lurking and non lurking Brass fans out there the Jim Brass forum is up and running again! You'll have to sign up again but once you do, the sandbox is free of cat poop and ready to go. So head on over, sign up and start playing. Except for the part where we lost all the old posts, the new forum looks great! Feel free to start adding to it.

Tucker's vet called today to see how he was doing. This was his regular vet. Did I mention I love her? It's great to have a vet who pays that kind of attention to her patients, even if she didn't do the surgery. And speaking of kitties, I had Harry on my lap (he has become a major lap cat) and Sophie lying next to me on the couch. Harry's tail is going back and forth so of course Sophie starts playing with it. So here she is, attacking his tail while he just sits calmly on the my lap. And I think he was on to her too because he would draw his tail back and then whip it in front of her. Cats are so amusing.

As is my tradition, today I'm cooking my own turkey dinner. Because I always go to my dad's, I never get the leftovers. And I like cooking a turkey. So I get a 5lb breast, make some stuffing and tonight, Brussels Sprouts and I have my own little Thanksgiving. And the turkey gets shared with my three plus Pudgey the stray. Between me and my neighbor, Pudgey will eat like a queen for the next week or so.

Thanksgiving Day recap )

If last night was food fail, tonight was food win. I stopped at Whole Foods, got much better, hair-free spring rolls, a lump crab cake, some rock shrimp (for the weekend) and these awesome pumpkin/cranberry/walnut and maple/walnut cookies. I love the cookies at Whole Foods. Heck, I love Whole Foods. Just wish there was a bigger one near me. I could live in that place.

Today at work they announced yet another re-org. When I first heard that it was coming (a couple of hours before the formal announcement), I can't tell you how demoralized I was. My company should be called "Management Re-organizing Constantly" because that's all we do. We have re-orged at least once, sometimes twice, every year since 2007. And it sucks because they always announce these things right before the holidays and then we, the people in the trenches, have to give up our holidays to make it happen. This is why I mostly hate Christmas. I never get to actually enjoy Christmas. My boss doesn't think it's going to be too bad but right now, no one really knows what's going to happen. Stay tuned...

This is the part where I fangirl Brass )
bunchofgrapes: (Brass - B&W white shirt)
They said it! They said the snow word! Okay, so it's not really going to snow but they said the word. It'll probably be all the snow we'll see this winter.

I am excited for this weekend because we go back to real time! I hate daylight savings time. Hate it. I don't like that extra hour of daylight enough to give up my "spring forward" hour.

Tonight is CSI and there was lots of Brass so I will depart from the thoughtful blog posts of the last two days and fangirl my favorite detective. Oh, and tomorrow is a hockey night so who knows what I'll post. It could be those stat sheets they pass around between periods.

Finally, some Brass worth watching! )
bunchofgrapes: (Brass - Tilt)
Now that it's hockey season CSI gets bumped in favor of Caps' games. Thursday night I kind of wish I'd watched CSI over the Caps because they choked against Boston. Luckily, they found their game last night against Atlanta.

I was actually looking forward to this episode because Brass was in the previews (shock) and Sqweegel looked sufficiently creepy.

It's the sound the brushes make: sqwee gel, sqwee gel )

For the few of you on my f'list who also play over on the Jim Brass Forum yes, it has temporarily imploded. Don't know when it will be back up but when it is, it might not be the same pretty.

Tonight was the season premier of CSI. Yes, I am one of the few who still watch this mess. I'll continue to watch as long as Paul Guilfoyle continues to renew his contract. I hope this is his last year and then he moves on to something new and different because I don't think I can take another season of "let's see how badly the writers have effed up this show" or, how I've come to want to punch Catherine Willows in the face. And hopefully, when Catherine goes, she'll drag her little whipped boy with her.

For the record I mostly liked this episode. )

I just watched the Grey's Anatomy season finale. Holy crap was that intense! CSI finale? That was not intense. I have a love/hate relationship with CSI right now. The only thing I really love and the only reason I keep watching is Brass. The rest just irritates the hell out of me.

If you're a Catherine fan, you might want to avoid this )
bunchofgrapes: (Brass - Tilt)
Carol Mendelsohn specifically mentioned Brass when she talked about this episode in TV Guide. I was kind of surprised she remembered he was a character on the show. She rarely, if ever, mentions him. But she did and she said it was "personal to Brass" so I was looking forward to it. It's becoming customary that Brass gets a "very special episode" at the end of the season. In the past it's been Hollywood Brass, then there was Bang, Bang and Way to Go (well, that one kind of got overshadowed by other events) and last season it was Hog Heaven. I guess this is payback for ignoring him all season. Let me just say, he needs to be paid back more often.
