Continued 'Raines' In the Forecast? .....

Several weeks back, I posted this about a show that premiered this spring on NBC - "Raines," starring Jeff Goldblum as an LAPD homicide detective whose investigations include seeing and speaking with the victims. The appearance of those victims in the detective's mind changes over the course of the one-hour program, as the investigation progresses, and he learns more about their background and the sequence of events that brought them to their untimely end.

At the time of that post, I worried about the show's future ..... and I may have been right to worry. NBC says it will air all seven episodes of the series this summer - but there's no word on its future after that. The consensus I've gained from TV writers around the country - at least, among those posted on the Internet - is that the show will not make the cut for NBC's fall lineup, set to be announced shortly.

That's a shame, really.

In the meantime, you can watch all seven episodes on line at NBC's website .....
here is the link for the first, pilot episode ..... enjoy!
