For the past five seasons, NBC has given television viewers a inside peek of the fast-paced and exciting world of gambling, live music shows, and people of all varieties in the hit show Las Vegas.
This show combines a well rounded group of young good-looking actors, famous guest stars, and TV veteran James Caan. The idea of this show is the day to day difficulties and problems facing the employees at the fictitious Montecito Casino and Hotel. The cast really seem to play well off of each other, and the timing just seems to come natural to them.
With season five bringing changes, the show to me seems to be starting its downhill roll.
Tom Selleck has replaced James Caan this season, and another original character left at the end of season four, also causing a new cast member to be added in her place.
This show was one of my favorites, and I do still watch it, but I think they have done about all the original story lines that they can. Changing major stars of a TV program is almost always detrimental to its successful run.
Over the years, Las Vegas has provided interesting and comical story lines, tons of guest stars ranging from the lead singer of Sugar Ray, to Don Knotts, and characters that we have looked forward to watching every Friday night.
