I've been reading the old entries on this site, because that's how cool I am; I spend my Saturday nights reading my journal. Yeah! No, because my episode reviews really do entertain me, and nobody else is posting much of anything. [Edit: Or at least, they weren't until about 10:00 PM my time, and THEN suddenly everybody had big long posts up...by which point I had already put together half this post, so I didn't feel like throwing that all away.]
Anyway, since they only go back to the end of April and even then, the earlier ones are very short, I went combing through my personal blog on Xanga for TV related entries, and started to stick a few relevant ones into the LJ archives. I was in short order distracted by some end-of-season CSI Miami posts, specifically as they pertained to Marisol. As often happens on this show, my "deluxe transcripts" of scenes tend to reveal more about my reactions than my actual journal entries do. And because I'm in a sharing mood...I've compiled several episodes' worth of Marisol scenes into one delightful post. (delightful for me, anyway. You probably won't care. That's perfectly fine; causes me to lose less sleep worrying about what people think when they read it) They're serious, written in as much detail as possible since their purpose is for me to read them instead of having to cue up tapes all the time, but they also have a habit of ending up with commentary and/or snark mixed in. I think they're an acquired taste. Anyway. These were all written at various points in 2006, mostly within a week of the episode's air date.
Damn. Now I remember why I could never, ever be convinced that these two were anything less than perfect. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy, and so I'm going to stop there. Otherwise I'll just end up at Rampage/One Of Our Own, like I do every single time I try to reminisce about the good ole' days of season 4, and it will completely defeat the purpose of wandering down the happy part of memory lane.
