1. Why I didn't care about Flack: Oh my God, what ridiculous sideburns! What ridiculous hair! He looks so much better with shorter hair, and I don't usually say that. That, and lately I think I've been too hypnotized by blue eyes to remember what I wrote in my journal in early 2005 about, um, "the ridiculously tall and rectangle-headed, Frankenstein-esque detective."
2. Why I didn't care for Lindsay: Right before joining this show, she was in the season finale of Without a Trace. The actress had a really memorable role as a girl unwittingly involved, via her boyfriend, in the weapons trade for African warfare, and she was a little bit delusional. She went away in handcuffs. It was really jolting to see the same woman suddenly pop up in New York in a starring role, and I bore a grudge for months.
