Walker: Never watched it, any CSI show, Person of Interest, etc. Hate big brother.
GentlemanJ: The Atlantic has been a Democratic Party cheerleader for decades.
bdub77: To be fair, it's probably partially accurate. NCIS is really popular with people over the age of 55, which seems to politically skew...is fascist the right term nowadays?

allylloyd: Law and Order (the original) WAS the best show on TV! Why--20 SEASONS! The only reason it was cancelled was because Gunsmoke was also on for 20 years. (The producers and NBC basically want a crime drama and a western remembered as the best TV shows) Why was Law and Order so successful? Because it was able to make cast changes without any trouble. One actor's contract didn't work; they found another actor. They realized they needed women on the show; they wrote in one police officer and one Asst. DA. One very popular actor (Jerry Orbach) dies; so did the character (Lenny Briscoe) and the show went on... They tried writing about characters personal lives; it didn't work. They never did it again. The writing and acting on this show was GREAT!//Law & Order: Criminal Intent was better. But Vincent D'Onforio didn't want to continue...//Law & Order: SVU is okay...
Okieboy: The only copy show I watch is Law & Order SVU, and kind of like how Pawn Stars is getting, I mostly only watch it for the character interaction and not necessarily for the content....
Cerebral Ballsy: Lemme see:2. Unprofessional CSI staff3. Soap Opera plots5. Completely ludicrous plots10. Everyone on the show is a stereotype, most annoying of which is the goth CSI chick11. These police procedurals rarely ever follow real procedure.
Dragonflew: FTFA: A closer look reveals that both series are uncomfortably akin to a cheering section for the NSAOh, fark right off. I enjoyed Dexter, am I cheering for serial killers?
Gig103: Walker: Never watched it, any CSI show, Person of Interest, etc. Hate big brother.At least Person of Interest doesn't show the "good" that is supposedly coming of the surveillance (i.e. stopping criminals, terrorists, etc), It's just a plot device to enable vigilante justice.
Gunboat: notatrollorami: I don't know about Big Brother but I do know (based on 30 minutes of total viewing) that if you watch NCIS you love hilariously generic clichéd crime drama.Slightly off topic, but only slightly.My former father-in-law's new wife insisted that watching MacGyver was educational and good for children because it would teach them about science.

Magorn: My antenna has twitched more than once watching this show and the various Law and order shows when the writers are clearly tying to get you to cheer for things like torture of prisoners, intrusive surveillance or Federal authorities wildly violating the 4th amendment (the Bullet headed detective on SVU has more than once told some crime suspect that if he didn't confess he'd turn the case over to the feds, get the guy declared a terrorist and whisked away to some foreign hellhole be held without charges-and he's supposed to be the GOOD guy)At first I figured it was sloppy writing, but remember the payola the National Drug Control Policy office used to dole out to tv shows in the 90's if they incorporated anti-drug story lines and NDCP-approved messages into their shows, I've long stopped thinking this is an accident.Still better than listening to old-time radio shows from the 40's like Dragnet when apparently "Miranda" was just the name of their favorite stripper, and "illegal search and seizure" was apparently not a thing.
