I’m glad that Elizabeth Shue, is on CSI Las Vegas now and has been for the last eight seasons now, but they lost a lot when both William Peterson left during the 2009 season and when Marg Helgenberger left three years later. It’s still a great show and I would hate to see either Elizabeth Shue or Ted Danson leave at this point, but it would nice to see all four together. Maybe Bill Peterson, gets appointed as Chief of Police or something and Marg gets his old job as the director of the crime lab. Liz Shue, comes in as her deputy. Maybe Ten Danson comes in as a big shot Las Vegas District Attorney and not just one of the prosecutors in that office, but the actual DA.

Losing Bill Peterson and Marg and bringing in Ted Danson and Liz Shue, is like treading two great basketball players for two other great basketball players, where neither team gets nay additional value. It’s like trading one great center for another great center. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, for Moses Malone, ( for any of you old school NBA fans that might still be alive today, or at least willing to admit that there was an NBA before 2000 ) if anything losing Marg Helgenberger on that show is a real loss, regardless of who you replace her with. Great to see Liz Shue on Las Vegas, I just think the show would be better with her as an addition, instead of replacing one great lead actress with another.

The Catherine Willows character had this sort of shy and quiet disposition and yet she could be pretty witty and was was always tough and as Ted Danson said about her, “you knew she was a leader from her presence alone.” The Fin character, ( played by Elizabeth Shue ) is a very open, witty , always has a smile on her face character, who like Catherine ( played by Marg Helgenberger ) is very dedicated, very smart, and is generally much tougher than her adorable disposition lets on. Liz Shue, is the perfect action/comedic or dramatic/comedy actress where she always finds herself in very serious situations, but always finds the lighter side in them. As Marg said in this video, she’s leaving the show, but it’s possible that she’ll be back doing guess appearances. And this video was done back in early 2012 when she left CSI Las Vegas and has already been back on the show. It would just be nice if she came back permanently in a new role like Chief of Police or something.

“Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man Ending.”

From Nick Nevler

If you like action films, especially action/comedy I believe you’ll really like Harley Davidson and The Marlboro Man. Which is really about two underachieving and immature drifters ( played by Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson ) who come from humble backgrounds, who grew up together and both end up back in their hometown together and find out that their friends are in trouble and their favorite hangout is going out of business, unless it comes up with a lot cash in a short period of time. They’re not career criminals, but they’re not angels either and end up stealing money from a bank that’s run by crooks and the local mob there to save their bar.

Neither Harley Davidson ( which is Mickey Rourke’s real name in the film ) or Marlboro ( which is Don Johnson’s real name in the film ) are meant to be one place for a long period of time, or even weeks. Especially Harley who is not just a biker, but is a drifter who takes off every time he gets bored and gets into trouble or something happens to him that he can’t deal with, because he’s so immature. Which is why the last scene in the movie after the heroes save the day ( so to speak ) is so great, because what is Harley doing, but taking off again and picking up a young woman ( played by Mitzi Martin ) who is also a drifter and they ride off into the sunset together.

 

USA Network: In Plain Sight- Something About Mary McCormack

Source:Action

Did In Plain Sight make actress Mary McCormack a star? I personally knew about her from watching her on ABC’s Murder One from back in 1995-96 where she played one of the lawyers at the firm there. And liked her back then both physically, but as an actress as well. And then about ten years later where she played the National Security Advisor on NBC’s The West Wing. The West Wing, goes off the air in 2006 and she gets In Plain Sight from USA a couple years later. She’s been around for a while and has been very successful for a while, but perhaps In Plain Sight made her a household name.

Source:IMDB– Mary McCormack, as U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon 

What In Plain Sight did for ( there’s a lot of something about ) Mary McCormack, is not just make her the star of that hit show from USA, but the main reason if not only reason to watch that show. She plays U.S. Deputy Marshal Mary McCormack, who is a badass Federal law enforcement officer who has a no bullshit ( to be frank ) attitude and doesn’t take anything from anyone, including her family. Who operates in a world where everyone around her is dependent on her and wants something from her.

Her no bullshit attitude operates in a world of bullshitters where both her mother and adult sister not just live with her, but are dependent on Mary for their economic survival. And she feels used and perhaps abused even by her own family and then she’s hard-ass U.S. Marshal who works for the U.S. Witness Protection Bureau and deals with professional bullshit artists for a living which just compounds all of her issues for her. And operates in a world where the only people she really trusts are the people she works with including her partner and supervisor.

Similar to Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order SVU who also plays a badass female cop, as tough as attitude and first impression is, she’s just too cute, beautiful, and feminine to completely fool people with her attitude. Mary McCormack, as well as her character U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon, is a tall, gorgeous, sexy, very cute sexy blonde who wears tight outfits on her show a lot and unless you’re gay or something, perhaps blind as well it would be very hard if not impossible to at least notice her, if not be attracted to her. On the outside she’s a very feminine and attractive woman, but with the attitude of an Army Drill Sergeant, where you would have to be a complete idiot to want to mess with her. And plays this role perfectly and makes a good show very entertaining all by herself.

Today shows and movies featuring gorgeous, sexy big city police detectives and other law enforcement officers are very common. Just look at Law & Order SVU, CSI Las Vegas, The Mentalist, movies like One For The Money where Catherine Heigl plays a New Jersey bounty hunter and I could go on. But in the early 1990s, actresses even gorgeous and sexy actresses, even very good if not great actresses were playing the wives or girlfriends of big police detectives, or playing the victims. Perhaps they would play a rookie patrol officer or desk officer, but generally not involved in doing the legwork and dirty work of what vice cops do to bring down criminals and put themselves in serious physical danger.

Source:PM Stunt Fan– Traci Lords, about to kick ass

Whatever you think of Intent To Kill and I’m one of the first people to say that it’s not a great movie, even though I like it and have seen it several times, Intent To Kill was ahead of it’s time in a positive way, because it had a female police detective who ends up bringing down the bad guys ( to use a cliche ) almost by herself. Her partner and boyfriend ( played by Scott Patterson ) ends up being the one who dies during the last shootout in the movie, not the woman with her boyfriend trying to save her as well and the day. ( To use another cliche ) Traci Lords, is the badass, super cop in the movie who brings down the bad guys. A Los Angeles drug gang, that’s involved in other crimes like rape and murder.

Again, I’m not saying that Intent To Kill is a great movie. Some if not a lot of the writing especially for a 1990s film was pretty cheesy. Traci Lords, made a name for herself in the adult film industry not as a great dramatic or action star. But she’s great in this movie as a LAPD vice detective who is gorgeous, sexy, has the look more of an LA biker chick with the black leather biker jacket, Levi’s jeans, black leather boots, but who isn’t just a pleasure to check out, but who plays a very sharp cop as well who is always ahead of the game. Her first seen in the movie she takes out a rapist on her own, because the victim is a hooker who is simply not believable as a rape victim. Which was a very different time back then. And she ends up essentially playing the female Dirty Harry in this movie and does a great job. A very entailing movie especially if you enjoy seeing gorgeous, sexy women kicking ass.

 

NBC: Law & Order SVU- Kelli Kiddish: As NYPD Detective Amanda Rollins

Source:Action

From Wikipedia

“It was announced on June 27, 2011 that Giddish would join the cast of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for its thirteenth season along with Cold Case’s Danny Pino coinciding with Christopher Meloni’s departure from the series.[7] Giddish told TV Guide during summer filming; “Everybody on the set is really excited and energized. They’ve lost a family member with Chris Meloni leaving, but they’ve been very accepting of us. Amanda is thrilled to be here working with these people, and so am I.”[8]

Giddish made her debut as Detective Amanda Rollins in the 13th-season premiere, “Scorched Earth”, in which the character first works alongside Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). In an interview with TV Guide, Giddish said about her character, “My character is in complete awe of Olivia, Amanda’s really eager to get in there because she knows her stuff and really eager to learn. She has come from Atlanta and there was a ceiling there, so she’s come up to New York.”

From first appearance at least, Kelli Giddish looks like she would be one of the last people playing a hard-nosed ( to use a term from the 1950s ) big city police detective who is dedicated to her job as a police detective and always wants to get the bad guy or girl and protect the innocent. Especially people who prey on the innocent. Law & Order SVU, is a drama about NYPD detectives who handle sexual assault cases. Everything from child abuse rape and everything in between or even worst than those cases. So this NYPD unit deals with rapists, as well as people who sexually abuse innocent people, as well as murder them. They deal with some of the worst criminals you can possibly imagine, as well as some people who are mentally unhealthy, who commit horrible crimes.

Source:Action– Kelli Giddish, as NYPD-SVU Detective Amanda Rollins.

I say Kelli Giddish and the character that she plays ( NYPD Detective Amanda Rollins ) because physically she comes off as so adorable and sweet and simply as someone who is not tough enough to deal with these cases. On the surface at least, Kelli Giddish looks like someone who would be better suited playing a heiress, or someone who works for a fashion magazine, model, perhaps one of those people who are simply famous for being famous like a heiress who spends most of their time spending away the trust fund that their rich father gave them, as well as getting into trouble. But that just goes to show you how terrific an actress that Kelli Giddish is who is someone who has such an adorable the American sweetheart next door demeanor and yet she plays a very tough NYC cop, who not only takes on the bad guys and girls, but who also kicks a lot of ass on the show.

Law & Order SVU, is a modern cop show about detectives who do a lot of leg work, as well as undercover work and are always on the move and not just investigating bad people, but taking them down. And taking down people to arrest them who don’t want to be caught. So you see physical altercations on this show on a regular basis and because of this you see beautiful, sexy women like Kelli and Mariska Hargitay ( who plays Detective Lieutenant Olivia Benson ) on the show looking beautiful and very sexy, dressing pretty casually. A lot of skin-tight jeans, boots, tight tops. A lot of times on the show Kelli looks like a Western cowgirl cop wearing a Western jacket with her skin-tight jeans and cowgirl boots. Instead of wearing a suit jacket or leather jacket that would be more common with big city cops in America.

The modern TV cop show now has a lot of women playing the top cops on the show and doing a lot of the dangerous work as detectives, sergeants, or lieutenants. Whether it’s Elisabeth Shue and Jorga Fox on CSI Las Vegas, Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish on Law & Order SVU. Which is why you not only see very attractive women on shows like this today, when 20 years ago they would be working in offices and even managing companies, but not doing physical dangerous work like working as vice detectives that they do today and doing other law enforcement jobs. Kelli Giddish, is the perfect example of what the modern TV cop looks like today. Beautiful, sexy, and even adorable on the outside at least, but very tough physically and personally and not someone you want to mess with.

 

Jas Bains: Crazy For Daisy Duke- Catherine Bach

Source:Action

When I was growing up in the 1980s especially in the early 80s when I was just starting to watch TV and had favorite shows and everything else, The Dukes of Hazzard quickly became one of my favorite shows. I loved the General Lee and cars in general on that show. I even thought the cop cars were cool and the cars that the bad guys and gals drove were cool. I still believe Boss Hogg and Sheriff Rosco Coltrane are one of the best comedy duos in the history of Hollywood and perhaps everywhere else. Sorrel Booke and and James Best, the way they played off each other was perfect, because they just had great chemistry together. I mean when your’e talking about both comedy and action-comedy The Dukes of Hazard is for TV what Smokey and the Bandit is for movies, one of the best if not best action/comedies of all-time, as well as pure comedies of all-time.

Even if John Schneider and Tom Wopat are never remembered for anything other than The Dukes of Hazzard and playing Bo and Luke Duke, similar to how Lynda Carter will always be remembered as Wonder Woman, they were so great together on this show that of course it’s the role of their lifetimes, but that role was so great that they can’t top it because of how great they were with those characters and how great they were together they don’t need a bigger and better role, because they were the best at least at this genre and have no need and perhaps don’t want to top Bo and Luke Duke. Watching this show every Friday night when I was 7-9 years old ( from what I remember about it ) was something I look forward to every week and a show I never missed even when John Schneider and Tom Wopat left for one reason in 1983 or 84 and were temporarily replaced.

But there was one other character played by a certain actress that was so memorable and brought me to that show every week just to see that face, body, and to see what she was wearing, to hear that voice and to see her do something that was hot, sexy, and adorable every week. I know we’re not supposed to have sexual feelings until we’re in junior high at least in our early teens when we hit puberty, but I swear I had a crush on Catherine Back before I was even 10 years old.

I watched that show every week just to check her out. Loved the cars, the car chases, all the comedy and characters in that movie and The Dukes of Hazard was a better show than Wonder Woman and Catherine did have better material and people to work with than Lynda Carter, but the reasons why people watched Wonder Woman every week to see Lynda Carter and to see her kick ass, are the same reasons why people ( especially guys ) watched The Dukes of Hazard every where to watch Catherine Bach who played Daisy Duke.

Catherine is still so hot, so sexy, so adorable, great personality, wit, etc. Similar to how Michael Jordan put fans in the seats at Chicago Bulls games regardless of who the Bulls were playing, Catherine Bach had guys home on Friday nights even if they were married or had a serious girlfriends to check her out on The Dukes. And she deserves a lot of credit for that.

If you’re familiar with the so-calld me too movement and have followed that and are a fan of it, you’re going to like this movie even though it came out 26 years before me too was a popular term in American English dictionary, because a lot of what these two women ( Thelma and Louise ) go through in this movie is what me too is about. Which is essentially young women and women older than that, very attractive women as well like Thelma and Louise and how they’ve been mistreated by men in their lives. In many cases by men who they trusted.

Susan Sarandon, plays Louise and plays a woman who was raped several years earlier and never reported it not even to her best friend Thelma. ( Played by Geena Davis ) Thelma, gets raped in this movie by a guy ( played by Timothy Carhart ) she met at a bar who she was hanging out with and he gets too physical for her. And they both reach a point in their lives where they’re tired of being screwed especially by people they trust and just let it all out and let it all go and just screw caution because they’re mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. ( Famous line from a certain great movie )

Thelma and Lousie, don’t start off their vacation in this movie as outlaws. They’re simply looking to get away and have a great time. Thelma, gets sexually assaulted in the parking lot at the first bar they go to that night before Louise finds them and rescues here which gets out of hand and she ends up shooting the man who sexually assaulted her best friend Thelma. So now they’re on the run because they decided not to report the crime thinking no one would believe them ( sound familiar? ) and now they’re on the run in rural Arkansas, ( as if there is any other kind of Arkansas ) but it gets even better because they pick up a young guy ( played by Brad Pitt ) who gets very friendly with Thelma, but he doesn’t physically assault and instead just takes all of Thelma and Louise’s money. So now they’re on the run with no money to support themselves.

Originally Thelma and Louise and just wanted by the state police for questioning of the shooting of the guy that Louise shot and killed outside of the bar. But when they go on the run Thelma knocks off some stores for the cash because they’re out of money. So this movie turns into a cross state char chase by the state police in pursuit of Thelma and Louise. This is very good movie, a very relevant movie to what’s going on in America with me too the last two years. A very funny movie with Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Chis MacDonald, Harvey Keitel, Steve Tobolowski, and many other great comedic actors. And a very sexy movie with Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis playing the female outlaws in the movie.

And when you look at their detective units where these people work at the office, there’s no such thing as Casual Friday, but instead they have Casual Everyday. Where the dressiest outfit for women there would be a pantsuit, but with boots instead of dress or business shoes. You’ll still see male detectives, sergeants, and lieutenants wearing business suits, but not so much with the women on these shows.

A common outfit for female detectives especially when they’re on the road and either questioning witnesses, suspects, or catching suspects will be a t-shirt sometimes long sleeve, but a lot of times short sleeve, with skin-tight denim jeans, maybe kaki jeans or cargo pants, with boots. Looking beautiful, sexy, and kicking ass as cops. Shows like CSI with Marg Helgenberger, Elisabeth Shue. Law & Order SVU with Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish. True Justice with Meghan Ory and Sarah Lind. Saving Grace with Holly Hunter from ten years ago. The Mentalist with Robin Tunney and Amanda Righetti. Chicago PD with Sophia Bush and many other shows like that from this era.

A big part of this obviously has to do with style with boots and jeans being so popular now with women, along with staying in shape with women wanting to show their bodies off in a stylish professional way, but also because this look is so versatile and practical and women can wear boots and jeans to the office without looking too casual now. And because they’re playing not just cops, but detectives who are in a lot of dangerous situations where they have to not only catch suspects, but catch people who don’t want to get caught and have to physically confront suspects.

Beautiful both men and women in America like seeing women kick ass on TV and do it in a sexy way. The common female TV cop now is beautiful, sexy, and fairly young. Who is more than capable of defending herself who wears a lot of tight outfits which is what people want to see from their TV cops now both men and women. Gone are the days where TV cops were almost always guys and generally middle age guys who are always wearing business suits. Now the common TV detective both male and female are younger, very attractive, well-built, and sexy, because that is what the viewers want to see.

If you believe never hearing of the CBS 1990 cop drama Broken Badges makes you special, you need to take a trip back to the drawing board especially if everything else about you is normal. You try to put a fan club together for a series that would barely qualify as a mini-series when we’re only talking about 10 episodes or so and you might fill up a phone booth, but leaving room for people to breathe and move inside of it.

Which is fine because unless you’re a big fan of Eileen Davidson ( from the great soap opera The Young and The Restless ) or big fans of Ernie Hudson or Miguel Ferer, Charlotte Lewis even, or CBS is not only your favorite network but has been your whole life and perhaps you’re the President of the CBS Fan Club and can name everything that great network has ever produced from the flops like Broken Badges to great shows like M*A*S*H and not just grew up with the network and it remained your favorite network as an adult as even a middle age adult, your’e probably not familiar with this show either.

I only got into Broken Badges myself when I started watching The Young and The Restless and Days of Our Lives several years ago when Eileen Davidson was working on both shows. And I was thinking I think I knew who she was before I started watching these shows, because I’ve seen her in a few other things and started looking into what she’s also done, because she’s great on both soaps and great to look at as well. ( And water is still wet )

And started thinking about a certain b-movie that she did like in the late 1980s which of course was Easy Wheels where she plays a biker goddess who is the leader off a female biker gang. And then thinking didn’t she play a tough but sexy cop on a cop show from like the late 80s or early 90s when I was in high school. That is how I got into Broken Badges myself and watched every single episode of that short lived series last weekend in preparation for this piece. Broken Badges, obviously did flopped or it wouldn’t have started in late 1990 and barley made it to 1991, but there were some good things about it and it did have a good cast.

The whole premise of Broken Badges where you have the rebellious officers and detectives who had issues with rules and following them and are always in trouble with their superiors, that are lead by a detective sergeant ( played by Miguel Ferer ) who was fired by the New Orleans PD and then broth in by the Bay City ( fictional town and PD ) because he wouldn’t follow department rules, regulations, take orders, thinks he smarter than everyone else, pretty much explains why this show barley qualifies as a series. This show would’ve been suited if it was based on a private detective agency where the detectives are all ex-cops who are talented but fired by their department for breaking the rules, that are brought in by a guy starting his own new detective agency after he was fired from his department.

But a lot of pilots fail and perhaps most do, but that doesn’t mean they’re complete failures if they have good casts that were good on those pilots and become stars later on and the failed pilots that they were part of become like jumpstarts for their careers. Easy Wheels and Broken Badges, didn’t make Eileen Davidson, Ernie Hudson, Miguel Ferer, or Charlotte Lewis stars. Hudson and Ferer, were already somewhat known from shows and movies from earlier in their careers. Hudson, with Ghostbusters and Ferer with Robocop. And Broken Badges allowed for Eileen Davidson to be on network TV and be seen which lead to other and much better roles for her.

Just to talk about Officer Bullet ( played by Eileen Davidson ) she plays this very tough and yet sexy, gorgeous, very cute even. What would be called a vice detective where she goes undercover a lot and works with dangerous people that would kill her if they discovered she was a cop. And she’s doing this work with a look of a badass biker chick very similar to Easy Wheels which came out right before Broken Badges went on the air in 1990. She’s always wearing this sexy black leather biker jacket , blue Levi’s jeans, black western boots, and there are a few scenes where she’s wearing black leather chaps over her blue Levi’s denim jeans. And she’s kicking ass in the movie a lot but always kicking bad guys ass, because of course her character is addicted to danger as the background of her character says. Eileen Davidson, is all the reason I need to watch this show and it also has a lot good humor and funny scenes in it as well.

I first came across Elisabeth Shue in in 1987 or 88 when I was 11-12 years old and I saw her in Adventures in Babysitting. Which I think was her first major role, but I’m sure others know that better than me. Saw her in Cocktail with Tom Cruise and Bryan Brown which came out a year after in 1988. Leaving Las Vegas from 1995 with Nicholas Cage. And then she sort of had a drought after that, or at least I wasn’t seeing her in anything or seeing any of her roles. And sort of has a comeback role with CSI Las Vegas in late 2011 where she replaces Marg Helgenberger as the deputy director of that CSI office on in Las Vegas.

CSI is a great fictional law enforcement show and I believe the best cop show since the original Law & Order show from the 1990s. And that even includes Law & Order SVU and is a great network show that is actually worth watching. They deal with very serious issues and crimes with most of those crimes being murder and yet have a real lighter side and streak with their cast and writing. With very funny people on that show and not just Ted Danson, but Elisabeth Shue, Wallace Langham and others. And the team on that show gives the impression that the like each other, like working with each other, and like joking around with each other. The Ted Danson and Lis Shue characters, have a long history with each other pre-Las Vegas and have great chemistry together.

I wasn’t a major viewer of CSI before Liz Shue came to the show in late 2011 and started catching it on reruns on USA a year later or so and noticed she was not only on the show, but Marg Helgenberger was gone who was obviously one of the best people and characters on that show, but with her leaving and Lis Shue coming on, the show definitely changed. Not saying it became better or worst, but certainly different. I believe Ted Danson and Lis Shue, give CSI a comedic touch that it perhaps didn’t have before. People who not only work hard, are dedicated to their jobs, and are very good at their jobs, but also know how to have a good time, notice the stupid and ridiculous and are able to make fun of it in an intelligent way. And with them together the show is just more entertaining.

Not to take anything away from Bill Peterson and Marg Helgenberger, who were both major parts of the early success of CSI and big part why this franchise is so successful and why CBS has been so dominant as a network the last 15-20 years, but Ted Danson and Lis Shue, both have strong comedic and dramatic backgrounds. I mean Ted Danson, was the star of two of the most popular sitcoms ever with Cheers and Becker and was very funny and great in both roles. As well as several successful movie comedies. And a lot of Lis Shue’s background in movies have been in comedy. And they both have strong dramatic backgrounds as well and combine both genres very well into one role.

I just love watching and listening to Elisabeth Shue on CSI. She has that great voice, face, and personality, sense of humor, that almost makes her seem like a kid and immature, because she’s so adorable physically and personally and yet she’s also a hell of an actress, very funny and great to look at. Gorgeous, very tight body, generally wearing tight outfits of the show. Tight blouse or short tight t-shirt, short jackets, and tight denim jeans and boots. Who even with her adorable presence and persona, is not someone you want to mess with, because she can kick your ass.

Ted Danson and Lis Shue, aren’t CSI Las Vegas all by themselves, they’re just the two main stars of that show. Perhaps what the show is built around. George Eads, Jorja Fox, Elisabeth Harnois, and others are important as well. I already mentioned Wallace Langham, but Jaclyn Smith ( from Charlie’s Angels ) is a great guest star as Langham’s mother. I just believe the show is better with Danson and Shue, than it was with Peterson and Helgenberger. Even though you could have a great debate about with woman is better looking, Marg Helgenberger a gorgeous sexy redhead, or Lis Shue, a gorgeous sexy blonde, but that’s for a different debate.
