A Silly Distractive Thought for a Bad Day
I have a long-running soft-spot for your basic kick-butt female detective/spy shows, etc. Goes all the way back to 1974's "Police Woman" with Angie Dickinson. She was the first actress to carry a 1 hour drama-of-any-kind as star. She won TV awards and laid the groundwork for everything from Charlie's Angels and Wonder Woman to Cagney and Lacey.
These days, I keep an eye on Detective Beckett in "Castle" and "Rizzoli and Isles", of course. Also Ziva and Kensi of the NCISes (I think Ziva's replacement is just complex enough to work out. We'll see).
Most recently---JJ and Elle, Emily Prentiss and Blake on "Criminal Minds", as well as Garcia, in her very special kick-butt cyber way, like Abbey on NCIS. This is a show I just discovered. The theme is such that I would never have imagined caring for it. But as any well-conceived show, it is smart and full of compassion in ways I didn't imagine…..
So here is the silly thing to muse on when you need relief from daily troubles:
What the heck is wrong that they ALL have the same impractical hairdo? As do all the supporting women actors. Fluffy, somewhat disheveled females are appealing sexually I guess. Plus the 5" inch heels they need to wear to chase down the bad guys. Huh?!
Two steps forward and 3 back these days!.....Hope this gave you a moment's distraction!...Blessings…..
