Agreed. The show now seems to be determined to stop pretending a procedural show because it's way over PV's head to write with logic. Her speciality seems to be the soaps and she's not even good at that. :lol: She really should be fired. I thought that's because Gary sinise has power on it's producing, but if your theory is nearer the mark, that woman is hopeless. I definitely agree. Aubrey is nothing but Mac's love life. But Peyton? I think in recent episode, she served the purpose as a momentum to draw Mac's attention to a certain crime. I've never liked her, though. And Aubrey.. She is cute! It's irony that the most useless character is becoming the most likable one to me! It's not like I want CSI: NY-MLS(mac's love story) but I hope to see her more. :lol: Agreed. But I think now is time to focus more on the case and logic and less on the character development, unless PV admits she's not good at real crimes or logic and prefers an easier way like filling up the airtime with clich love stories and empty family dramas. I don't know.. The reason I object Smack is that both of them are the main characters so their relationship would overshadow everything. They are sharing pretty much airtime already and their friendship and trust to each other can't be compared with the relationships they've been building with other characters. So they have deep bond, even chemistry, yes. But a couple... They go out to dinner or stop by each other's home or have outings that someone might call a date.. those things are not appearing on TV though. I think they are already doing it. I rather want those things to be in backseat so they won't overshadow the other characters and even crimes- the real purpose of this show. :thumbsup: It goes the same with DL, I think. Anyway I agree - in a different perspective though because I don't support Smack; neither hardcored nor the fine line between friends and a couple version - with all my heart. English is not my language so I have difficulties in explaining my thoughts. So there will be some nonsenses. But I tried.
