Caine disappears into the sunset?! Considering its crime shows, CBS has just announced that it’s pulling down the shades on Poppy Montgomery’s Unforgettable, which wasn’t unpopular, but suffered in comparison to blockbusting shows. Rookie cop drama NYC-22 also fell off the pier and, after a gigundous ten seasons, stalwart CSI: Miami.
Still enjoying a place in the sun are several upcoming crime series, including the modern Sherlock-in-NYC of Elementary, Vegas (perhaps sadly, not with awesome Dan Tanna, but a 1960s crime drama based on a real sheriff), and cop-to-commissioner story Golden Boy.
Perhaps you’d argue, but if Archie Bunker’s chair belongs in the Smithsonian, don’t Horatio Caine’s shades? Of course, we’ll always savor Scott D. Parker’s spirited explanation of why CSI:Miami was beloved by its fans, but if you haven’t seen this in a while, let’s enjoy this sunset-kissed montage together.
