I watch CSI all the time. I like the Miami one, but the head guy irritates me. He knows things no normal person would know - like he's psychic.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Used to ...

Post by Lord Caspen » Thu Feb 02, 2006 2:38 pm

I used to watch CSI, off and on ... I still catch it occasionally, but far more off than on, and I usually laugh at the Miami version. David Caruso's Horatio Caine is not only too knowledgable, but he also manages to tell everyone else what their jobs are, and has the tackiest egoist lines I have ever heard. I know that he's not supposed to be Gil Grissom, but Caruso could take a few lessons from William Petersen. The lead detective can be smug, sure, and he can be super-knowledgable and even a little dictatorial ... but what of humanity? Caine never loses his temper unless there's an angle where it'll add to his "cool" factor, he's never funny, and his attempts at warmth are stilted and predictable. Grissom is more unexpected, and far more subtle. He's got a genuine wry wit and truly singular points of view.

I think the key distinguishing trait between them is that Horatio Caine is never vulnerable. He's always completely impenetrable -- aloof to his audience. He's worse in this regard than any of the canonized detectives of lore. Nero Wolfe generates more empathy than this guy, for all that the former is an obstinate infant-terrible with a fanatical passion for reclusiveness. At least we're able to look into his eyes, metaphorically, and glimpse a mind at work that creates reasons for such things. We can't access Caine the same way.
It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit. -- Blithe Spirit, Noel Coward.

Sorry, I'm not too into the CSI shows. I do like watching those true crime shows, my favorite being City Confidential.

I watch My Name is Earl, The Office, Lost (when I can), Friends, That 70's Show, and the Simpsons. I used to be a huge Survivor fan, but I have been weened off it.

Desperate Housewives, Commander in Chief, House, and Law & Order SVU are my favorite newer shows to watch.

Sometimes, I flip to Gameshow Network and watch Match Game 74. The celebrity panel always has me in tears (happy, laughing tears).
