"Got your nose!" is universal. And just as irritating.

I've been watching NCIS: Los Angeles, as I mentioned yesterday.

When one binge watches, the formula of all TV shows becomes extremely apparent:

1. Three to five minutes showing the crime-du-jour
2. Opening credit montage

3. A couple minutes bantering of cast and first sight of what the running joke will be and then recap of crime-du-jour and known-at-the-time bad guys to crew.
4. Twenty minutes or so running down clues, alternating scenes between the sub-groups, not knowing if these are a false trail or the real thing. Cut in a second go at the running joke because Rule of Comedy: Three is Funny.

5. Ah-ha, realizing what is really going on scene and ultimately catching the bad guy after saving one of the cast members from sure death.
6. Final scene of banter with the punch line of the running joke and round up of how the bad guy was caught.

So I will probably watch some of that tonight. I COULD watch the Arrow rerun tonight.

We'll see how it goes.

Lots of rain yesterday. Lots of fog this morning.

Much love,
