Twin Peaks: Snoqualmie

Summer television

I have discovered The Closer. I am entertained. It's not the sort of genre I usually go for, but I watched it based on the recommendation of a co-worker, and, other than laying on the Southern accent a bit thick (they always seem to do that in Hollywood), the quality exceeded my expectations. LAPD Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson is real enough that I can identify with her in several ways. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's the best show on television or anything, but I'll definitely keep tuning in. The Season 3 premiere, "Homewrecker," was particularly strong.
