CSI and derivatives

Post by lynsosaurus » Mon Oct 01, 2007 00:09

It's a well-known fact that a night in front of the telly without at least one episode of CSI is a night wasted.

I'm becoming a fan of CSI:NY in particular, partly because it's hardly ever shown on the channels we have. But the awesomeness of the original CSI cannot be denied. CSI: Miami is a bit of a comedy show, right?

I really can't get into CSI:NY - I watched it once and there was a woman on with an English accent and it put me right off. I don't even remember whether it was a good English accent or not, it just seemed ridiculously out of place amongst all the lovely griminess. CSI:Miami's got proper soap-opera - there were some really great, chilling episodes back in the first series but every time I watch it now there seems to be a punch-up on a yacht and David Caruso kneeling down to remove his sunglasses.

Original all the way from now on. Even did the unthinkable the other day - I got a novel based on the Award-Winning Series out from the library to read on the bus. Gil and Sara went to the hotel from the Shining for a weekend. It was like fanfic done by a Point Horror writer. "Warrick looked sharply in the mirror, analysing his smooth, nut-brown skin and shaggy half-afro that gave him such boyishly charming good looks, and sighed. Today was, he knew, going to be a long day."

Wahey for CSI!

If only I'd known about these books before today; they'd make perfect holiday reading. Curses!

I love CSI:NY for it's griminess. That's the best bit.

David Caruso only has two looks: FACT.

He either looks like this:

or like this:

Heheh! I can completely picture his stoop as he removes sunglasses pictured in Figure A to crouch meaningfully in Figure B. He's so deliciously one-dimensional.

On another note, I'd totally do Gil Grissom.

I know! I didn't realise it was her until Gav pointed it out at the end. The songs made sense, then...

I quite liked that one. I love the double episodes of Miami/NY that channel five seem to show.

I saw Catherine Willows in Frasier today. It's not as interesting but she knows how to work the sexy.

If there is anything better than watching CSI:NY, it's watching CSI:Miami when they go to New York. Horatio + Mac = a powerhouse of crime scene investigations.

I think I'm going to give up geography and become a crime scene investigator.

i've been working at home the past few days, doing some really mundane stuff that needs done, and taking regular breaks to stop my brain melting. i discovered that we have some episodes of 'cold case' for free on our cable on demand service, so i've been watching them a lot this week. nobody ever talks about 'cold case'! i like the flashback things they do, and how they always have music from the relevant time period playing in the background. and the young detectives are kind of hot.

ohmygod. ok, this is probably old-ish news (i only realized today that i've series linked the wrong freakin' series of csi! i was wondering why it was always repeats. duh) but ***SPOILER AHEAD****

warrick gets killed? what the hell? i knew he was leaving the show but ohmyGOD. i only watched the last 10 minutes of the episode so i don't even know what happened exactly. is that the first time they've killed off a long-term csi?

i'm watching the episode of csi:miami where a retarded guy witnesses a shooting and horatio befriends him, and then the shooter has the witness beaten up and he's going to die and horatio goes to see him in hospital. i think this might be the saddest csi i have ever seen. it may be the end of me.

the number of times you see characters in this show not wearing gloves in the lab and at crime scenes is atrocious.
