It's entertaining. It's the only thing I watch on a Monday night. Besides the inferno. I guess you can say this show saves Monday night for me because Monday is a terrible night for television. Josh Duhmel and his co-star are very nice to look at :D

A fan from about a month into the season last year, I watched the original show for the first time last night. It was interesting to see the orignial intentions for each character versus what they have become over time.

Most interesting for me was how the show seemed to be aimed at featuring Josh Duhmel, especially with all of his Sargeant Friday voiceovers. I think that James Caan has since come to the forefront and all the other characters now receive almost equal airtime.

Result: I love 'em all. The best of Monday nights ... maybe even during rerun season.

Don't get me wrong; I'm beyond happy that the men and women of the Montecito are back, but it's a little bittersweet. While skinny-mini Lara Flynn Boyle is in as the new casino owner, Marsha Thomason is out. I really liked Nessa, despite the fact the show never quite knew what to do with her. Nessa's disappearance into the British version of the witness-protection program isn't the only thing causing some serious frown lines for poor Ed. His entire crew is scattered all over the place: Danny hasn't been hanging around since his dad died; Delinda has been ignoring her pop; Mike's been working as a valet again; Mary's supposedly enjoying life with her cute lawyer boyfriend; and Sam's nowhere to be found. So that leaves Big Ed to handle Boyle's Monica Mancuso by his lonesome. Per Mancuso's orders, Ed has to get Danny to come back to work, leaving his No. 1 guy to reenlist Mike and Sam. Mary and Delinda remain on the outside

I was worried that this year would be a bust for Las Vegas. But when I saw most of the original cast coming back I heaved a sigh of relief. Glad to see all the drama, and hunks, back and in action. :)

If you love topless women with ample assets, Ed, Mike and Danny solving a couple capers and yes, more guest stars than you can shake a stick at, then you've come to the right casino. Counterfeit chips keep Ed and Mike busy. No less than Richard Lewis, Paul Anka and Dennis Rodman ante up for a pseudo celebrity-poker showdown with Danny. At this point, I really was hoping Phil Gordon and Dave Foley would make a surprise appearance. Instead we get to hear Rodman ask when the Pussycat Dolls go on. Las Vegas, you slay me. At least you have the good sense to bring Mitch back into the security fold. Welcome back, Mitch Longley!

One of my favorite over-the-top moments (out of so many) is when Ed is interrogating some Barbie doll who seems to be bestest buds with the word "like." She like, talks like this but can't really like, tell her story in a way like, anyone would understand. OK? Like, totally! As for Lara Flynn Boyle, her Monica Mancuso is becoming kinda obnoxious. But you can't say she's an idiot; she does manage to fish for quite the compliment from Mike and cops a feel of James Caan's assets in just under two minutes.

Turns out this is also Rachael Leigh Cook's first episode. She pops into Danny's life at the very end, just in time for the show to introduce some mystery about his late dad. But when Danny opens the door to Cook's real-estate agent, Penny Posin (love the name), I really thought they were going to blast Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me"

On last nights Crossing Jordan....Danny from Las Vagas came to Boston and helped with a case while Woody from Boston went to Vagas and contacted Sam at the casino in another aspect of the same case. At the end of the show it showed Jordan and Woody possibly spending the night while Woody wakes up in Vagas with a wedding ring on his finger and Sam in his bed.....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...how will this affect Las Vagas.

This is the second time that Crossing Jordan and Las Vagas has had character swapping. They did last year for one show of Crossing Jordan and the following show of Las Vagas.

This is only the beginning of October and guess what? NBC hits us with a Crossing Jordan-Las Vegas crossover stunt. Oh, joy. On Sunday a perfect storm of circumstances enabled Danny to hop on a plane to Beantown to help Jordan and Woody figure out why a Montecito showgirl jumped to her death in front of the morgue crew. Not so sure about the Jordan-Danny chemistry, but I did dig the Danny and Woody frat-boy rivalry that managed to be simultaneously dorky and cute. And like the good procedural that Crossing Jordan is, the case was wrapped in a neat and tidy little package in under an hour... well, sort of. Woody was still in the City of Lost Wages steaming things up with Sam, and Danny invited Jordan to join him at the Montecito (for a little somethin'-somethin', maybe?). Jordan hesitated and mentioned something about not being the spontaneous type. So, not realistic.

The "Crossing Over Vegas" spectacular continued on Monday night with all interested parties at the Montecito and a fresh new load of cases to solve. Woody and Sam played games in and out of bed while Jordan and Danny... talked (again, whatever). That is, when they weren't trying to get to the bottom of some kidnapping scheme that involves Neelix from Star Trek: Voyager. Meanwhile, Ed and Mike dealt with Saturday Night Live's Darrell Hammond, a guy with multiple personalities (personally, I prefer his Geraldo Rivera). But I have one big question: Why are we seeing so little of Mary and Delinda? Last year Big Ed's team seemed like a family. This season, Nessa's gone and everything still seems scattered. I want the family back together again.

Poor Ed. He has to take pills for his hypertension and find a way to stay destressed even though he runs one of Vegas' megacasinos that's always the target of nefarious types looking to act out some nefarious schemes. On top of that, some stupid fool has stolen the big guy's identity. Wait, there's more. Unbeknownst (I love that word. It's so Speed Racer.) to him, Mike gets Ed's precious Aston Martin stolen and chopped up. Stay destressed? I don't think so. At least this all leads to some pretty funny Ed and Danny scenes. James Caan and Josh Duhamel really have this father-son-type chemistry down pat. And is there anything better than finding out something about Sam's mysterious past? Don't answer that. But come on, admit it: Her brother shows up (half brother, I get it Sam) and the girl vibrates all kinds of nervousness over her coworkers finding stuff out about her. That's enjoyable! Learning that as a kid she had a lisp and she could Electric Boogaloo with the best of them? Priceless. I say if Fox's So You Think You Can Dance ever has a second season, they should look up our girl Sam.

The Las Vegas Guest-Star Cheezometer was on a low hum for this latest episode, but guess who did show up as some sort of new boss? Nina from 24. I guess Sarah Clarke is the newest lady on the Montecito block

Go into the light, Danny. All are welcome! All are welcome! Yup, Poltergeist's Jobeth Williams played the mysterious lady friend of Danny's late father. In a turn of events that shocked absolutely no one, she and Rachael Leigh Cook ended up being mother-daughter grifters, trying to trick our man out of 100,000 bucks. Even though on the surface Danny seems hot and clueless, that's all an act (well, except the hot part). He caught the thieves before they could hightail it out of town. Then we were treated to one of those awkward scenes where Penny Posin was like (I'm paraphrasing here), "I really, really like you. It just started out as a scheme but once I really, really saw you and once I really, really slept with you, I changed my mind. I realized that the money meant nothing because I was like really, really into you. Seriously. It was better than Cats. Forgive me." And then Cook made her grand exit. It was a touching scene. I almost cried. That is, until I started bumping and grinding to a Rihanna tune. Be thankful you weren't witness to this. Seriously. It also turned out that Sam's bro, who on the surface seemed like a doofus, really was a doofus. He fell for Monica, which was a big mistake 'cause the woman clearly doesn't have what we normal folks call a heart. Meanwhile, Ed saddled up to the OK Corral to take on Nina (you know, the traitor girl from 24. Except her name is Olivia Duchey here. I don't care; to me, she's Nina). Anyway, Nina's annoying everyone in sight with her incessant bean counting. Ed won't have it. Monica will have it. And Ed quits. Oh, the simplicity of it all. See y'all in sweeps!

Las Vegas did the time warp and treated us all to a retropisode. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give the effort an Ocean's 8. The vibe was chill, the music was cool and our posse looked gooood. The show did a credible job of re-creating early '60s Vegas

Before I get into the recap, I have a little Las Vegas housecleaning to get to. First of all, I never knew there were so many people passionate about who they want their Danny with: Sam or Mary. Now I do and I'm lovin' the debate; keep it coming. Second of all, I said that I gave the edge to the two ABC Daytime alums Josh Duhamel and Vanessa Marcil. Well, some of you out there reminded me that Nikki Cox was once on General Hospital. I stand corrected. But seriously. Josh and Vanessa were like ginormous stars on their respective soaps (AMC & GH). I mean, I only really became aware of Nikki when she was on that sitcom with the stuffed rabbit.

OK, now let's get back to our regularly scheduled program. For me, this episode seemed like a way to spend some downtime between last week's great '60s time warp and next week's so-called watercooler episode. You know, the one "where it's not just who cashes out but how they go." Monica brings in some big expensive sapphire and of course it gets stolen just before the exhibit opens. Danny has to put his cute little butt in action in order to figure out the culprit without Ed's assistance. Meanwhile, real-life magician Criss Angel keeps Mike and Delinda busy trying to figure out the myth behind the mind freak. But you know, when Mike said, "I don't get the whole magic thing," I had to agree with him. Although, there was one trick I desperately wanted the answer to: What was keeping Monica's "top" in place (by top I clearly mean two way-too-thin strips of fabric)? Whatever it was, it miraculously prevented her from going all Tara Reid on us. Thank you, wardrobe department.

Question: Could you have overhyped Lara Flynn Boyle's death scene on Las Vegas any more? That in no way compared to Rosalind Shays' shafting on L.A. Law.
