That clip brings up another point about CSI Miami.  The ME on that show is really creepy and annoying.  The way she strokes the bodies and is all "Don't worry baby, we'll find them."  I don't know, it just creeps me out.

The "David Caruso as god looking down" poses are annoying too.

...and takes them off.   :)

He has an odd way of stooping to look into peoples' faces, too. 

He was pretty brilliant in NYPD Blue, though.

I still like the original, but it's not appointment viewing. I catch it when I can.

I loathe the David Caruso character from Miami with the intensity of a thousand suns. That smug asshole just HAS to save the day in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE! The show couldn't be more transparent if they had him walk on water or heal some lepers. My wife and I actively watched it for the first two seasons just to openly loathe him.
what people forget is that its a serious show about a serious JOB.  And like any job it gets boring.  :)

When I was in undergrad, I got to shadow a real "CSI" for a week.  It got much more boring much more quickly than the shows.  In real life, it's a lot less cowboying and a lot more mass spec and graphs.
thats why i think these shows are so funny, its like cops would be boring if they showed all the paperwork that went with every arrest.  Or those silly cops scariest car chase shows.  My dad is a cop and on wedsday he had a car chase that involved pulling a gun and punching in a windshield, he literally didn't finish the paperwork until his friday shift was over.  and this had nothing do with him being new, he knows his job well lol

I've only seen a couple of the NY episodes, but nothing there made me eager to come back for more.
Surprisingly enough, this really isn't anything new. I'm too young to remember, but my mother says that there was a cop show called 'Highway Patrol' (I'm guessing it was a 50s' precursor to 'Chips')
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047739
Anyway, it starred Broderick Crawford as Chief Dan Mathews.  Was he dealing with the press and taking calls from the mayor, and such and so on an so forth?  Yes, absolutely and without a doubt.  He also found time to investigate and solve every crime, every episode. Iguess the other cops were there just to make coffee, answer the phones, and pick up his dry cleaning....

Yeah, it seems to follow a formula

Caine:  "Blah Blah Blah," Shatneresque pause, puts on the sunglasses, "Blah Blah Blah"

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

Ok, I'll confess now that I love CSI in all it's forms and I've got most of the series' on DVD.

But just like my favourite movies and Rifftrax, I can also laugh at it as well. Especially when someone does something like this:
