Right off the top of my head, I can think of a way around having Stana Katic unavailable to shoot the first episode. Delay production one week. Premieres are no longer all in the same week on all networks now as they were in the Fifties and Sixties. The more I read about this, the worse it sounds.
Scott Bakula is well-experienced with walking and running in a dress, since his Quantum Leap days. Looking forward to it!
Not hardly! I keep going back and re-watching them on the CBS web site, although at this point, I can only see the last five. I wish they'd put it out on DVD, but I fear they will not.
It is my favorite of last season's new shows which survived. (Keeping in mind that last year, I had only CBS, ABC, and Fox available to me. I have read that there were excellent shows on other networks. I loved Battle Creek and Backstrom, too, but they did not survive.)

Thank you for mentioning that. I have been watching the DVDs of Scorpion Season 1, and I will watch that as soon as I finish. I've always appreciated commentaries; the ones on the DVDs of most Stargate SG-1 episodes are hysterical.
Due to a peculiar set of circumstances, I no longer have a television, so I have to watch shows on the internet, up to 8 days later, depending on the network. So, I have not seen this episode. However, I have some comments about the review. I would be happy to see Alexis go away. She was thinking of Oxford. Go. Timbuktu is nice this time of year. How about Mozambique? It sounds like she is getting worse, not better, and she was already repellent. I too enjoyed the film noir set of Castle's PI agency. Sad to hear it seems to be gone. Because of her obnoxious and insulting habit of insisting on being called "Sir", I am delighted that Gates is gone. I found that to be demeaning to women... Women deserve respect, too, not only men. I received my DVD of last season in the mail last week. I have not yet opened it, and there was one episode last season I never saw. It is not the Cheers effect, but this show does not hold my interest the way that it did when Montgomery was still alive, and when Alexis was a decent human being. Martha is still wonderful, though, and so are Espo and Ryan, and his lovely wife. I think that the stories are not as good, not as quirky, as they used to be, and I miss that. This show used to remind me of the terrific movies of the Thirties and Forties, with William Powell and Myra Loy. No more. I hope the Beckett side of things garners a more favorable review.

I definitely can get behind the idea of more Mary Cooper! She is wondrous with her son, and with the others. The two mothers together was my favorite episode this season.
I never liked the character (although I have great admiration for the actress.) It will be interesting to see the replacement -- the first captain was such an interesting fellow.
Dude -- or Dudess, I live in Boise, Idaho. We do not really need an NCIS here. Low crime rate. Also, the nearest large body of water with the Navy on it is a couple states away ....
On the upside of that point, while it annoys me that my opinions no longer matter, since I am so ancient that they consider I must be buying nothing (they would be wrong on that), every time one of the networks puts on more tripe for the young, or reality garbage with obnoxious persons competing for prizes, I am gifted with yet another hour weekly of my life which I can use for more worthwhile pursuits, like gardening, or watching the baby quail in the yard of my new house, reading a book, or visiting with friends. The more garbage there is on television, the less reason there is to waste any more of my life watching it. So, while it really bothers me when a fine program dies an early death, I figure it is just more of the "Firefly" syndrome. Networks are often staffed by fools. CBS just proved that yet again.
