F is for 'Forever'

All of my favorite sci-fi shows were canceled last season, but I do have a new show that I find interesting because it's sort of like a sci-fi Sherlock Holmes. As some of you may know, I write gif-tweet-caps about Elementary, and also co-host a podcast about it. I also love the show Sherlock. But Forever is a whole different take on Holmes, but without actually being specifically about Sherlock Holmes.

It is about an immortal man who has lived long enough to learn just about everything there is to know about everything, making him incredibly intuitive. He's actually the medical examiner in a crime lab, but works alongside a female cop just because he's so darned good at solving crimes. He also studies death, because he doesn't want to live forever, especially after losing loved ones and having a son who is near the end of a long life.

In the gif below, he's studying the gun that could possibly have caused his immortality: it was the first thing that "killed" him. He's wondering if he can end it the same way it began, and imagining that first "death" he experienced.
