Without a Trace

Sep 28 2007 04:48 am   #1Serenity

So, who's watching James right now on Without a Trace? I normally do not watch the show, but tuned in just to see him. Not really paying attention since I am at work unless he's on the screen. Have to say though, looks totally hot in that suit. It's no black leather duster, but it'll do, don't you think?

It's also sorta like when I get to see my friend Patrick's show, I'm all "you're all serious!" I know James has done LOTS of serious stuff, but it's still different somehow. It's not dramedy like before, it's pure drama, you know

Unfortunately, we had big vampires in the next room, and I didn't think they'd wait while we had hot monkey sex. ~Cerulean Sins :: (Anita to Jean-Claude)“Is there anything your bloodline does that doesn’t involve getting naked?" ~Danse Macabre :: I’m dating three men, living with two more, and having occasional sex with two others.

Well, of course the man is gorgeous in anything, but yeah, the suit does it for me, that's for sure.  Gotta say though, was a little disappointed that he was only on screen for 3 minutes or so...  was really hoping the part would be bigger.  Guess we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed that the character is built up, right???  Plus, they were a GREAT 3 minutes!!!

Maybe if we bombard the production company with letters demanding he become permanent..... hmmm... heehee

Ooh, we could have a petition.  And we could picket CBS.  And we could have websites dedicated to the hotness that is JM.  Oh wait.  We already have that last one, don't we??  LOL!

Well, the show isn't all that great, but damn it, they've just gotten themselves a new viewer.  At least until JM's contract runs out, lol.

Well of course I was watching since I'm a fan of the show, but I was zoning out, then I saw his name flash across the screen and I actually screamed, lol. Then when the chopter landed I figured that was him. First thing out of my mouth was "Damn, is he getting hotter?" To me he looks better now than he did a few years ago. *drools* Great start for him character on the show.

I was a little surprised that his name was Detective Morris. Wasn't it supposed to be Mars? Oh well. At least I won't keep thinking of Veronica Mars. Unless I heard it wrong and my closed captions lied to me. Grrr.

Unfortunately, he can't become a regular because he's going back to Smallville to play Brainiac. Squeee!! Plus, I don't like WaT anymore. I stopped watching it 2 years ago cause the storylines with the characters were getting so stupid. And I can't stand the main guy Jack; he annoys the crap out of me.

And he was sooo hot handling that gun! I bet he had a lot of fun learning how to hold it and everything.

I agree GB. He's definitely getting hotter. He's like a fine wine, but probably tastes waaaay better. Heehee.

He did look really great...He is one of those guys who most definitely looks better with age (insert his cute, but goofy high school pic here).  Anyone notice how in that last scene, his phrasing/choice of words?  What was it- "getting their rocks off" or something like that.  I had a Spike flash

And seriously, how much did WaT's ratings go up?  If someone gets the percentage, please post it.  I hope it was a lot, cause his following should say something about his ability for a film.  No idea how well "Serenity" did or didn't do in theatres, but I don't think those characters were as popular as, well, you know...And the top thirty grossing films of this year- 1/3 of those were films based on adaptations or pre-existing characters.  It's what sells.   Hell, next summer, they're doing a film on Paris Hilton's friggin' dog getting lost in Mexico, with Drew Barrymore doing the voiceover for Princess and Salma Hayek as the voice of her wise guide (no, not making that one up).

And now, I will stop myself...

Sounded like Mars to me.

He's only doing 4 episodes of Smallville, and that's filming really soon. WaT could make him a regular later in the season, still, if they wanted.

I'll keep my eye out for the overnights, Scarlet. Someone will have dug it up.

Brain travels off to naughty places, lol. But, yes, he does. I think once they see tehr atings just because he's on the show now, I think they'll be offering him a regular spot there. I hope so. Because I really do like the show, but it needs some new blood, and some better writers.

I thought it was Detective Marks, and I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that's what his character's name was going to be.

Does anybody know the airing dates for the Smallville eppies?  I don't watch it normally, but my God, wasn't he hot as Brainiac?  Gotta watch, gotta watch!!!

James' episodes are scheduled for sometime in January. They haven't posted any specific dates yet. They probably will later as it gets closer to the airing date.

In the script sides when they were casting the character, it's "Detective Grant Mars".

Sep 28 2007 08:57 pm   #16Blood Faerie

On TV Guide he was listed as Detective Mars *nods*

For those keeping track, WaT topped it's time slot. Got a 10.9/18 share of the ratings for the night. CSI got 14.8/22 and Grey's recieved 13.0/20 share, according to Zap2it. Can't wait for more...Yummm.
