Slighting Detroit Again

This is wrong, just plain wrong. The Web site TV Shows on DVD has already announced a date--September 20--for the complete first season disc release of Dana Delaney’s freshman forensics drama, the mediocre Body of Proof. However, fans of the ABC series Body of Proof replaced on Tuesday nights, the much superior police procedural, Detroit 1-8-7, still haven’t heard about a DVD set of that show’s opening season.

What gives?

But we do have the Mat Hatters here.

On the flip side, some of us like "Body of Proof." That doesn't mean, though, that I need to watch it over and over again on a DVD.

How will you handle it later this month when "Body of Proof" gets renewed for good ratings and "Detroit 1-8-7" most likely gets cancelled for poor ratings? But Detroit won't suffer alone, "Chicago Code" is likely to end as well.

Did you catch the mention of Detroit in "Fringe's" season final episode? Two characters shares a tragedy they referred to as "lost Detroit." There was no explanation what that meant.

"lost Detroit" may have been a reference to the Fermi 1 incident, and the John G. Fuller book about it.
