Want some Action this March? You got it!
By James Whittington, Tuesday 27th February 2018

March, a time for changes as the nights get longer ad the days warmer. But the more things change the more it stays the same and that's just how we like it here at CBS Action as we continue to bring you some of the best action-packed drama the USA has to offer.

Let's first look to Horatio and his team at The Miami-Dade Crime Scene Investigators, known to us as CSI: Miami. Season 5 starts weekdays at 5pm from March 13th where Horatio and Delko go to Brazil to avenge Marisol's death. Also the CSIs enter the high stakes world of modelling when a male model is murdered, and a celebrity murder during an A-list party leads the CSIs to uncover a counterfeit ring producing hundred dollar bills.

If you like you crime-solving to be on the more gentle side then Diagnosis Murder Season 8 is for you. Dr. Mark Sloan (Dick Van Dyke) is the Chief of Internal Medicine at Community General Hospital and often offers the LAPD medical consultation in their toughest cases. He solves these mysteries with the help of the recently promoted Lieutenant Detective Steve Sloan, his son (Barry Van Dyke). Throughout the series, Dr. Sloan is not only assisted by his son, but also by his friend Norman Briggs (Michael Tucci) who works as a hospital administrator, medical examiner and pathologist Dr. Amanda Bentley (Victoria Rowell) and hospital resident Dr. Jesse Travis (Charlie Schlatter). Through their combined medical and criminal analysis, there’s no case this team can’t crack. Catch the Doc and his team weekdays at 6pm.

Ride with us to the city of Dodge for the longest running primetime drama series in television history where Marshall Matt Dillon is responsible for bringing law and respectability in Gunsmoke. We're reaching Season 13 where Richard Kiley guest stars as Will Stambridge, a reluctant gunfighter with whom Kitty falls in love - after he risks his own life to save hers; drunken Circuit Judge Warfield, who is on the payroll of town boss John King, is forced by Dillon to hold an inquest into the death of a woman saloon owner, and an ambitious mother doesn't consider Newly O'Brien or a neighboring farmer suitable suitors for her daughter, provoking them into a fight which almost leads to tragedy.

With its combination of Cold War villains and James Bond-like techno-gadgets, Mission: Impossible (weekdays at 2pm) was an instant hit when it premiered on September 17, 1966. In season 3, The Impossible Missions Force, led by Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) enters Equatorial Africa to crush an army of mercenaries, led by a self-styled colonel (guest star Pernell Roberts), and to return plundered gold to its rightful owners, The Force is assigned to knock out a boxing syndicate which fixes fights to create favorable odds for a bookmaking operation, and an army commander plots to become dictator by imprisoning an influential cardinal and using a look-alike actor for a public endorsement.
