    I'm about to go after the program directors on my favorite channel A&E. Being a huge fan of First 48 and Cold Case Files....im getting pretty fucking miffed about how CSI is on Marathon madness for as long as i can remember.

    CSI is so ridiculous, i know they have to solve every case by the end of the episode but come on....how far fetched can you get? It's always filmed with this yellow filter on the camera to look all warm and sunny. Heracio needs someone to take him out for a beer because the man is way too serious. Not to mention the way he talks- he's a complete one-note. He isnt even goodlooking but lands model chicks as girlfriends on the show. And who the hell does autopsies with the nightlights on? Geez.

    I just have to rant about it. It's been a shitty 24 hours and the last thing i need is Heracio with his uber-cool sunglasses suspecting every damn person he sees as a suspect in some ridiculous murder.

    The plus side is that it is grusome as hell. But not nearly as cool as First 48 or Cold Case Files.

    CSI Miami is the best comedy on TV.

    Obviously someone thinks its funny to put reruns of Mythbusters and Dirty jobs i've seen 3 times on at the same time so im in a virtual TV prison.

    Yeah its so bad that when i drop my daughter off at school and come back home that im watching Dora or Backyardigans for 30 minutes in the background and not even realizing it. There is nothing else good on, why not watch NickJr? They dont have reruns.

    CSI Miami sux. it is the worst of the CSI shows. Horatio is a red haired pasty skinned dude in the sun tan capital of the world, who walks around talking to people with his head tilted at some ridiculous angle. plus they are driving hummers around, the lab is the most advanced in the world with instant results. and all paid for by tax payer $$$$$. NOT!!!!!

    David Caruso(horatio) must be getting paid a lot of money to whore himself out to such a shallow acting part and crappy show. If I was him I would have been asking them to "kill" my character after the first year.

    CSI Miami and Hawaii 50 are the greatest unintentional comedy shows ever.

    I love all of the CSI's. A lot of shows on TV aren't believable, so why should the CSI's be? It's for entertainment... duh.

    I can't be the only one who wants to feed him those sunglasses.

    I can't recall ever seeing Caruso in a role where he wasn't an obnoxious prat.

    That's a plus side? :confused:

    My pet peeve is the skin tight pant suits the women on these shows wear when they know they will be dealing with dead bodys and bodily fluids.

    You need to upgrade to digital basic or basic plus. We have over 275 channels and no movie channels. :cool: Who needs em with that many channels? :tongue:


    That link is dead but I agree she was great! I loved her on the childrens show, "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" I also enjoyed her and Craig T. Nelson on "The District."

    Where In the World is Carmen San Diego was my escapism in elementary school.

    The problem of the CSI and ME shows is that they require exotic, not to outrageously arcane kinds of murder to be interesting. Picking a .45 ACP bullet out of a thorax and comparing the lands to the ones of test projectiles won't quite cut it to make a multi-episode, multi-season series plus spin-offs and competitive series. Although that might actually be an alternative against all the usual ME fuss.

    I liked greatly the "Twin Peaks" series in 1990 and the sequel, "Fire walk with me". That kind of crime show was really my cup of tea. That, and Kyle MacLachlan. Let's face it, he's at his best there.

    I liked Twin Peaks. Aside from the surreal funkiness, I have to say Kyle wasn't the draw for me, I was more focussed on Lara and Sherilyn. :biggrin1:

    Didn't the Log lady concept come from Lynch's earlier work with her (Coulson) on Eraserhead?

    CSI Crime investigation is porn for me and N_S. He gets that twinkle in his eye when he sees Marg Helgenberger and I enjoy salivating at all the men.:rolleyes::biggrin1:

    You get three(or four?) whilst I get one; we need another staple TV show to make things even. :biggrin1:

    Damn good coffee. :cool:

    That is the usual theory, and I don't see any indication that it is wrong. However, Eraserhead is completely against my taste in movies, so don't test me on that.
