I always enjoyed that show, the cast of characters was always too funny.  He'll be missed.

It's the last episode of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story next week. There will have been 9 episodes ...and I have been riveted by the whole story.

The weakest character...for me.....is Donnatella ...played not very well by Penelope Cruz.

The young actor who plays Andrew Cunanan....Gianni's murderer has been brilliant.

Really worth a watch if you get the chance.

Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

And I wish I could see it again, this time not missing any episodes.

Stephanie March made a return appearance as Alexandra "Alex" Cabot, former ADA, on last night's episode of L&O: SVU.

I thought the plot was very interesting, centering on Alex helping women and their children to escape from abusive partners.

Maybe it's just because March played the ADA when I first began watching the series, but I still like her best of all the ADA's they've had.

Scott Porter was in the cast, too. Guy's put on weight since I last saw him on Scorpion.  ::) (IMDb says that was in 2016; I didn't think it was that long ago.)

I watched that episode, too, Jeff. Another one of those intriguing right & wrong, what would you do, moral dilemma
stories that can make one glad you don't have to make these decisions.

I've been seeing commercials that Elementary is coming back. I thought that show was gone for good.

I have enjoyed (is that the word I should use??) the whole 9 episodes of the series
"The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
I have been riveted to my seat every Wednesday evening. I never knew there was such a
horrible twisted back story about the murderer or the murder.

May 8 will be the last episode of N.C.I.S. with Pauley Perrette as Abby Sciuto, the Goth Girl lab genius.

The April 30--May 13 issue of TV Guide has a very nice article about her. (I note that right now, only Perrette, David MacCallum, and Mark Harmon [of course] are left of the original cast.)

Perrette is leaving on her own, as she decided it's just time. Everybody loves Abby, and she's going to be really missed.

The TV Guide story has this interesting paragraph, which I'm taking the liberty to quote in full:

Quote
Since taking the role, Perrette has received thousands of fan letters and Twitter messages from the young ladies she inspires. Which is one of the reasons, the actress says, it's going to be hard to say goodbye--and why she's already set up scholarship funds for women studying forensic science at Georgia's Valdosta State University (her alma mater) and New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Well, even David MacCallum has only been in about 4 episodes this season, as he was in Scotland teaching and now writing a book about his most unusual cases. Jimmy Palmer is the full time Medical Examiner now.

I read somewhere that Ducky's appearances were cut back because McCallum is 85 now. One of the episodes where he did appear included a young woman who was supposed to be helping Ducky with his book and who ended up helping Abby in the lab. By the time I saw that episode, I had already heard that Pauley Perette was leaving the show, so I wondered if the other young woman was "on approval" to be Abby's successor.

Mark Harmon is 67 (and still good-looking).
