I've been watching the Law & Order:CI marathon on the USA Network today as I spent a day alone around the house. N worked at the shop and then stopped by the house for a few moments on her way to a friend's for the evening so it's been just me, the animals, and the TV. The Law & Order franchise has been a staple of my TV watching since high school; guess it feeds my frontier American fantasy of justice and the bad guys getting theirs in the end. I finally got annoyed after six episodes that every time the detectives elicit a confession at the end of the show--no matter their location--a pair of uniformed officers materialize to conveniently whisk the suspect away to holding. Out of nowhere.
Yes, I know, it's TV.
