    Ah-h-h-h-h-h to be young again. After reading all of your posts, talking of school, etc. I guess I'm the 'ole timer here. I have a 34 yr. old granddaughter and 2 grand kids, if that says anything.

    But....you don't have to be 'over-the-hill' to enjoy such a fantastic show, right?

    Did you mean a 34 yr old daughter and 2 grandkids?

    Because if you have a 34 yr old granddaughter, that would make you...like 70'ish. And (not to say it can't happen) I haven't seen very many 70'ish people cruising the net. My grandmother would cry if she had to touch a computer. lol.

    lol! My grandmother has no clue how to use the Internet. All she does is check emails, and sometimes she gets confused on how to do that.

    Mysterybuff just confused me. Why would they say they have a 34 year old granddaughter and two grandkids? Wouldn't they just say I have three grandkids? That's what made me wonder.

    Sorry for playing the pronoun game, I didn't want another repeat offense a la KirkE. lol.

    Sorry guys.....I should've re-read my post. My daughter is 34 and my granddaughters are 16 and 6. I had my daughter when I was twenty.........you do the math

    I'm not that old yet.....please!!  My best friend is 66 and she's a whiz on the computer. Self-taught, like myself. We didn't have this technology when I was in school. No cell phones, no cordless phones, no email, etc. Shows such as CM, NCIS, CSI and The UNIT etc., would've been unimaginable back then. The only good mysteries were Alfred Hitchcock (and they were good!) and an occassional spy show like The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (my favorite). As a matter of fact, bassgirl106, my friends and I used to spend weekends thinking up story lines for the show and writing out scripts like you are doing.......and you're doing a very good job of it I must say.

    Well, thanks again for yet another compliment! I appreciate it very much.

    You're not that old!!!! Believe it or not, I sort of remember when there were no cell phones like we have now or anything else. They didn't think up story lines using the FBI or anything like that?

    And I love the Alfred Hitchcock movies- they are some of my favorites!

    I don't recall that many shows, if any at all, that dealt with the FBI, forensics or criminology of that nature back then. The way that shows dealt with crime scenes was totally different. There was no DNA evidence, etc. It was the good 'ole Sherlock Holmes way of investigation. Of course scenes were not graphic either...even the blood wasn't realistic looking. It was mostly spy adventures and then............James Bond, secret agent 007. There was only one 'Bond' and that was Sean Connery.......none of the others since have even compared.

    Alfred Hitchcock...........I've seen them all (and not reruns...lol).

    We've come a long way baby!

    I remember watching some of them at my grandparents' house. It always cracked me up...the special effects and everything. I guess it was amazing back then. I used to watch Gunsmoke and all those other old shows that were on Sunday afternoons and stuff, and when we had cable I used to watch TVLand a lot.

    I think my favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie is "The Man Who Knew Too Much" Great movie!

    I have never watched an AH movie. I know, I know...

    Anyway...my dad says the same thing about Bond. I really like SC, but Pierce Brosnan has always been my Bond.

    And I know--there were never any forensic shows back "in the olden days", were there?

    don't worry,scc1fan, the arthritis in my shoulder hurts too much to throw anything! lol

    Pierce Brosnan...oh yeah! Now you don't have to be young to enjoy him.
    You've never seen "The Birds" by AH?

    lol--good.

    PB is sooooo smooth! And no, I've never seen "The Birds." I've heard of it, but I've never really been into horror films.

    Of course, watching an FBI agent receive a severed head through the mail doesn't seem to bother me...

    LOL!!!!

    I've seen part of "The Birds", but I never really got into it. And Pierce Brosnan has always been one of my favorite actors...so-o-o-o-o cute! Still!

    I like suspensful horror films. Like "Hide and Seek", if you've ever seen that. If you like CM, you'll love that movie. I saw it in the daytime and it freaked me out so bad.

    It was w/o a doubt the freakiest movie I've ever seen! I still have issues with it, and I saw it in like September.

    Anyway, to me CM is a lot like that movie. Creepy sometimes, suspenseful. The great thing to me about the show is that it shows that there are truly evil people out there... and it kind of explains why they are the way they are.

    I think the thing I love the most about the show (besides Hotch.lol) is how it keeps me guessing. I mean, anyone who knows me will tell you that tv shows do not stump me. I can accurately predict where the plot will go halfway through the show about 80% of the time. It's just the way I see things, I guess. Anyway--I rarely can do that with CM. I love it! I can just enjoy the episode without having to analyze it. Perfect!
