Preempting the Program

Dear Mouse,

Good detective, spy thriller and suspense stories are those that can glue you to your seats from scene one to the stunning conclusion.

This is the moment when you pick your brain and ask what clues did you miss to identify who the killer really is?

With shifting points of view and different motives as there are different suspects, the climax of the story is in the last five minutes where twist can give you a hardly believable villain.

With the proliferation of the disgusting reality and make-over shows, CSI is one of the most well-thought TV programs, (to borrow Doc Emer’s words) that satisfies detective and thriller fans so that CBS had to apologize for preempting the last five minutes of the detective drama in order to air the news about the death of Arafat after the station was deluged with irate calls from the viewers.

I wonder what Sassy, who claimed that she suffers a withdrawal symptom if she misses an episode would do if that happened in the local TV network.

Newsbreak: We apologize for interrupting the regular programming of this blog to give you the newsbreak. A Tv set was seen flying out of a window after a large scream was heard coming from the family room of the house on a hill.

Bad trip yun, last 5 minutes? E-mail campaign to death yun. hahaha

I watch CSI from a cable channel. Two successive episodes on Mondays at AXN. WALA ganyang interruptions. The local network's episodes are from the previous season.
