NEW TRICKS


New Tricks centres around Sandra Pullman who out of desperation to put her flagging police career back on track recruits three old veterans to lend a helping hand.


They work cold cases...It's Sandra and the three old farts...It's my new favorite PBS show. It comes on Friday night at 10pm central time. They manage to solve the crimes, and they're all smart old dogs, trying to learn new tricks, but they are so goofy. They do the silliest things, and the dialogue is very funny and very smart...I just love this show...If you haven't seen it, you should check it out...What else is worth watching on TV on Friday night?...Well, there is LIFE, on NBC, with the hot redheaded English actor as a cop who was framed and did 10 years in prison (where he became one with Zen) before he was proved innocent and he sued the city of Los Angeles and won a multi-million dollar settlement and then goes back to work on the LAPD as a homicide Detective..Mainly to find out who framed him, Alan Arkin is his x-cellmate who was in prison for fraud or embezzlement and now is his money manager and room mate..I love this fecking show..
I know, I know..nobody watches TV but me...in between reading 5 books a week. Sigh*...I need a life.. This is the them song for the New Tricks TV show...I swear I wake up in the middle of the night and the song is running through my head...It's alright ..it's ok....doesn't really matter if your old and gray...ha..love the song..
ok...can you tell I'm bored...this is what you get when I'm bored. I'm looking for some old posts to reprint for all you newbies...Gotta go...there is a 1/2 pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream calling my name... Gonna split for some Banana Split...
New tricks theme song.
It's alright, it's ok,
doesn't really matter if you're old and grey
It's alright I say it's ok
listen to what I say!
It's alright, doing fine,
doesn't really matter if the sun don't shine,
It's alright it's ok
getting to the end of the day!
Hi tech low tech take your pick
cause you can't teach an old dog a brand new trick
I don't care what anybody says, yeah yeah yeah!
Those 2 verses are sung about 3 times by Dennis Waterman one of the main characters of the show.

Hey, I thought I was Queen Annie, The Ruler of Every Fucking Thing! Now I know why my printer won't work. Send your kitty to fix it, please.
