Notes on CBS' Shark

Last night was the premiere of Shark on CBS. It takes place in Los Angeles.

Problem: The Mayor doesn't have secret service looking agents. He has LAPD when on the job.

Question: Why does the Mayor look like Los Angeles city councilman Tony Cardenas (played by Carlos Gómez)?

Kudos: For filming on location or faking the County's downtown drab marble interiors quite well.

We liked: The Los Angeles natural light.

We didn't like: The eventuality that Shark (played by James Woods) and Jessica Devlin (played by Jeri Ryan) will kiss (or at least have a close call).

Where was: Shark's house?

Maybe to come: A drinking game based on Shark's wildly moving hand gestures in court and every time he mentions one of his "three rules."
