I'm personally pleased as punch that she's gone ahead and done same on the official CBS website, because that continues to make me happy about supporting this weird little nuanced oddly feminist and humanist and humane cop show/under-the-radar urban fantasy.** Especially as CBS is home to some programs that I find politically utterly reprehensible.

It's good to star on a top ten show. (And apparently, there are still enough people in the world willing to watch unrelenting smart television to build a top ten show, given a couple of seasons to find it, which does my little heart good.)

*Jury's still out on Prentiss, though. ;-)
