I’m Not As Bored As People All Over The World Watching Procedurals
Looks like the United States isn’t the only nation with an unhealthy love of crime and medical procedurals. Variety listed the tops in France:
Produced by Bruno Heller for Warner Bros. TV, “Mentalist” ranked as France’s top TV series in a year with few TV ratings hits.
As in recent years, U.S. imports held sway. “House” registered 11 top 100 rankings, “CSI” six, “Criminal Minds” five and “CSI: Miami” three.
Goddamn right! CBS is ruling the entire world! Being entirely honest, I’ve never partaken in watching The Mentalist, so I can’t say whether it’s a good procedural or a bad one. My default position, though, is that most lean towards the latter. Quick cut! Quick cut! Quick cut! Witty one-liner! CUE INTRO 55 more quick cuts! CREDITS
