Re: Vegas: Cowboys vs. Mobsters in the '60s

I really wanted to like the pilot, because the cast and crew is phenomenal and the setting is compelling and well-realized onscreen, but I was just bored to tears by the procedural plot and kept tuning it out to do other things. It's got enough gravitas amongst the cast to keep me sticking around for more, but I hope the plot gets a little more exciting than the CBS standard by the numbers murder mystery of the week. Oddly, I don't mind that with Elementary, because it's the nature of the show, but when you do a show about the rise of the Vegas mob and casino culture, I want something more than just a procedural.
