CSI Miami and the rest
a: CSI ~
b: a Rotting Corpse Fetish
What: I've watched this show a couple of times and find it ridiculous. It seems they find the most gruesomely decomposing corpses and spend much time picky over and analyzing it in great detail. This is of course the premise of the show. But are all the bodies delivered to the medical examiner in this state of decay? I doubt it. Part of the appeal of this show must be viewing beautiful women, immaculately dressed, musing over a rotten corpse. What gives?

CSI and the Scooby Doo
a: CSI ~
b: Scooby Doo
What: "There's no mask at the end, but when you think about it they are remarkably similar. I was watching it yesterday and I realized that I loved Scooby Doo and now I love CSI." Hmm. What are the commonalities? They both involve crime. They both involve solving crime. They both both involve solving crime in a fluid stylized way. They both involve soling crime in a smooth stylized way that has little to do with reality. That's the down side. The upside is that they both have men and women working together to solve mystery. That, me thinks is the draw of both shows.

CSI is like House(TV Show)
a: CSI ~
What: "And I am aware that CSI is like House, a freak-of-the-week sort of show; it doesn't represent the daily grind of most of what goes on in the lab ..." Yes indeed. both shows are fictionalized accounts of a scientific process. How fictionalized? On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being in the realm of fiction-fantasy, both shows are about an 8, by my estimation.

CSI is like watching miscast actors
a: CSI ~
b: Ron Jeremy
What: "i dont watch crime shows becasue of CSI, watching CSI is like watching Ron Jeremy trying to act in Harry Potter" Of course, Mr. Jeremy is well cast for what he does. As Harry Potter, he'd be pretty strange. The point of this statement, the CSI actresses are way too glamorous for real life. Most under stand that these crime shows are fiction. But they border on fantasy much of the time."
