Shades of justice

I don't really care for CSI: Miami. Just one of those things. If I have to watch a CSI, I'll watch the original, thank you very much. Part of the problem is that David Caruso kind of bugs the shit out of me. It's beyond me how Studio 60, which is a good show despite its problems, is getting its ass kicked in the ratings in the US by this show.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken CSI: Miami is more popular overseas than the original. Apparently, Miami is just one of those places that fascinates people.

Anyway, I was reading this post on Warren Ellis blog about CSI: Miami. Especially, Caruso and his sunglasses. Apparently they are called "the Sunglasses of Justice" on the set. It's so ridiculous. And apparently there is a video which just takes a look at Caruso's last line before they go into the opening credits. The fact that they all sound the same is retarded. That almost all of them feature him putting on sunglasses is...something.

Anyway, for your amusement on a Saturday night...seven minutes of David Caruso dispensing justice...with shades.

I, too, cannot STAND David Caruso. And it is the only reason I don't tune into CSI: Miami. He annoys me to no end!

Was there anyone better than Jerry Orbach's Lenny Brisco reciting a last line before they went to the opening music on Law and Order. Caruso cannot hold a candle. I find CSI Miami unbearable to watch.

I have to say, I am an ardent fan of Horatio. What makes him more interesting than the guy from CSI, is that Horatio always seems very close to becoming a Bad Guy, or at least using Bad Methods to achieve good. He's very nearly a vigilante. Besides watching to see if today is the day he 'takes any means necessary', I also like the whole supporting cast better than the original CSI, and care more about their background stories.

this was a hilarious video! It bothers me that each time, he sides himself up to the camera too.
