2002-07-29 Entry: "Missing Anecdote"
The in-flight magazine on the plane had a list of the new shows, coming to whichever american network it happened to be an add for (CBS?) this fall.
One show stood out amongst all of these - "Without A Trace" - a cop show about the FBI missing persons unit.
Now, I'll freely admit, it's a police drama, so it's got a good chance of sticking around; at least until you look closely at the cast and realize they've picked Eric Close.
Yep, this show's got the kiss of death already.
Now, to be fair, I like Eric Close, and hope he has a good run with the show, but it's not as if he's been lucky in the past (the graveyard has a full rundown on his failures to date). And I'm not sure another police drama is really necessary...
But I'm willing to be proven wrong.
