Not What You Were Expecting?

It is day 9 of the Third Second Annual 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike at We Work for Cheese and today's prompt is Dylan.  Now get on over and check out the other participants at WWFC!

I expect many of you have seen this show which ran from 1997 until 2004.  Dylan McDermott, who played Bobby Donnell, was the recipient of the Golden Globe award for best performance by an actor in a TV series in 1999, and nominated for others.

But how many of you ever watched Dark Blue?  This was a Crime Drama that ran on TNT 2009-2010.    McDermott played the Lt. Carter Shaw of the LAPD, leader of a small, secret undercover team.  The show had fans, but alas it didn't make it past the second season.  

I know this is not what was expected from or intended by today's prompt, but sometimes you've got to do whatever floats your boat. All I can be is me - whoever that is. -Bob Dylan


  1. I've never seen either of those shows. I'll have to check them out.

  2. I have seen a few episodes of The Practice, but was never a regular viewer. The other show, however, I had no idea existed. I wonder if Netflix has it... ?

  3. I used to have a co-worker who said "You do what you've gotta do til you ain't gotta do it no more"... which is pretty much my life philosophy.

  4. I haven't seen these shows either. I guess Ill be checking my streaming TV shows to see if they are there!

  5. Good for you. There were several ways to go with this and you tok the road less taken. Well done.

  6. I watched the Practice form time to time. It doesn't feel like it but it has been off the air for nine years.

  7. That second one passed me by, too, although it sounds intriguing.

    You are right on track for today's theme!

  8. I HATE Bob Dylan so I LOVE this!!!

  9. Paula- They may be available on DVD.

    Nicky- I watched The Practice occasionally. I saw every episode of Dark Blue. Don't know about Netflix.

    MsDarkstar- Amen!

    laughingmom- They were both good, but I liked Dark Blue best.

    nonamedufus- Sometimes that the best road.

    Shawn- Time flies, doesn't it.

    ReformngGeek- It was my favorite of the two.

    Katherine- I'm glad you enjoyed it. I never listened to Dylan but I am a fan of Dylan McDermott so this worked for me.

  10. I have seen Dylan McDermott in both the Practice and Dark Blue. More recently, I saw him in the American Horror Story series. Creepy...well not ALL the naked parts but some of them...creepy.

  11. To this day, I love Dylan McDermott. And Private Practice used to be one of my favorite TV shows!

  12. Cheryl- I've not seen that show. I might have to look for that.

    Meleah- He rocked "Dark Blue".

  13. I would have liked Dark Blue. It looks like it's fits our TV viewing. It's been hard lately to find any really good shows lately.

    We've been watching Downton Abbey. I think I'm more into than Jim is. Go figure. Then again, he likes Justified....

  14. I know a lot of people are watching that, and I have only just heard of it. They even have Downton Abbey wines.

  15. Have to be honest -- never watched those shows.
