More times than not, I have said I should be a TV critic. The First 48 was a winner in my book from the first episode. I haven’t missed an episode since it began. I own both “Best of … ” DVDs and it’s part of my Thursday night ritual along with popcorn and cuddling up with my chiweenie Buddy.
According to Wikipedia, “as of the August, 2011, end of its 11th season, A&E has aired 180 episodes of the series. By season 6, The First 48 had become the highest rated non-fiction justice series on American television, and had gained considerable critical acclaim along with controversy. The season 8 premiere on January 1, 2009, garnered a domestic audience of 2.3 million viewers making it the series’ most watched episode, thus far.”
From A&E’s website, it describes The First 48 like this: The biggest enemy for any homicide detective is not the suspect…it’s the clock. In fact, if they don’t find a lead in the first 48 hours, their chances of catching the killer are cut in half. The First 48 tracks real homicide detectives as they struggle to solve murder cases across the country. Gripping, authentic and dramatic, viewers are brought along for the ride as the detectives hunt for killers to bring to justice.
The First 48 has featured or plans to feature detective units in 23 US cities.
One of the most exciting season premieres of The First 48 featured Kansas City, Missouri. This two-hour premiere featured a serial killer case in the Prospect Avenue corridor. Terry Blair was eventually found guilty in the deaths of six women in 2008.
The case began with 911 cell phone calls to police on Sept. 3 and 4, 2004. The caller told police he killed two women whose bodies had just been found. He continued to call police and told them where to find three more bodies and had details only the killer would know.

Dion Graham has narrated The First 48 from the very beginning. In all the episodes I’ve seen, I may have heard one that was not narrated by him and it was a slightly different format.
Driving home in the rain last night, my mood lightened some when I realized I had a new episode of Copper waiting for me on my HD DVR. It was episode 5, which means we’re at the midpoint. I can tell from the comments on the website (bbcamerica.com/copper) that people are hoping it gets picked up for a second season (I’m definitely in that group).
I’m amazed by some of the comments of viewers that they can’t hear it or that it’s filmed too dark. I can think of only a handful of reasons why those television viewers are having problems. 1) they are watching it on an old television set; 2) they are watching it on a new television set without additional speakers; 3) they have the right set-up and always have surround sound on and do not know how to turn it off and/or adjust it.
For those who leave comments that it’s filmed too dark – come on people – read your television manual. Learn how to operate one of the most expensive pieces of equipment that you own (next to your car). There are different (automatic) settings you can experiment with.
Try it – please – but don’t comment about it on the website of a television show likes it’s their friggin’ fault! Now, on to important matters.
I love, love, love shows that make you feel like you’re not being … denied (for lack of a better word). FX’s Justified made me feel like that. Watching Copper, when the first commercial came, about 14 minutes into the TV Hour, I was overjoyed knowing I had at least 45 more minutes (including commercials).
In my first post about Copper I made an error when I said it was WRITTEN by Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana. Those two gentlemen are executive producers. I apologize. While I was tuttuling around the site this morning I found this little nugget of information: Copper’s series premiere delivered BBC America’s highest-rated telecast ever in Live +7 Day on Sunday, August 19. From what I understand about television numbers lingo, that’s nothing to be ashamed about.
If you still need a little shove, here it is:
I was drawn to The Voice from the beginning probably due to my eclectic choice in music and my love for Maroon 5. I DON’T LISTEN to Britney Spears and I couldn’t tell you the name of a song by Demi Lovato.
I enjoy the chemistry between the judges on The Voice. I like hearing that Blake Shelton took Dia Frampton from Season 1 on tour with him and that Javier Colon was in South America recently with Maroon 5.
You don’t hear about those things coming out of the X Factor or American Idol camps. Mainly because the “star” judges on those panels are more interested in their 8-figure salaries than they are in the talent.
The Voice has pioneered a new way of auditioning in case you haven’t caught the show. The judges sit with their backs to the stage and all they hear is the … Voice. On Tuesday night a young man sang La Bamba entirely in Spanish and Blake Shelton was so excited he could hardly wait to hit his buzzer. Blake and CeeLo Green were fighting to be his coach. That’s not something you’ll see on X Factor or American Idol.
The Voice is still in the audition stages. The judges will have teams made up of 16 members this season. You can catch it on NBC Television or go here:
