If you have the option to record Sunday evening shows from west coast feeds do so. I leave in the east and record those shows from west coast stations. They don't get delayed by sports events which are almost always over long before 9:00 west coast time.

Here's a tip for Sunday evening recording. If you have access to west coast stations showing your favorite shows, record them from those stations. They record quite late for east coast times but they don't get preempted and delayed by sports events. I live in eastern Canada and record from Vancouver network stations. We don't get west coast versions of US networks in our cable package so for 60 Minutes I set it to record for 2 hours. That always seems to get the whole show even though I might have to fast scan through up to 45 minutes of football.

I hadn't thought about the reason for leaving the hairbrush but your comment is a very good one. That's the kind of reasoning that Kalinda would use. As for the campaign, I agree that it ended too quickly and simplistically. I also agree that it is hard to imagine watching those episodes again--much ado leading to nothing. Finally, the court case about mandatory sentencing could have been a lot more meaningful and ending on a clerical error was another lightweight script. This has been a good show over the seasons but the writers seemed to have phoned in a few episodes. They need to set up a compelling story line for next season before ending this one. While it is likely that someone (with a bit of patience) could start watching this series part way through, there are so many long running story lines that it would be a bit difficult to figure everything out. Unless people watch old seasons on DVD or Netflix, they would miss a lot. Therefore, the series stands to slowly lose viewers over time through poor scripts or plot lines and gain very few new viewers. In the end it just withers away.
