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."

Pickets are being held outside at movie and TV studios across the city
