Maybe it's changed since but I checked in periodically over the first couple seasons and if anything it was even worse. Actually the whole show seemed to be done in the same mode, from the hugely over saturated colors to the even more "out there" technological stretches than Vegas has. And I actually really liked Caruso in his single season on NYPD Blue way back when too... Different strokes
No, I'm not just referring to Caruso (although we all cheer him on mockingly
), I like the police chief guy, and the variety of expendable bad guys seems to be a higher caliber of actor than their equivalent extras on the Vegas show. I do agree on the colors, they utilize every trick in the book, ie polarizing, saturation, and tons of color graduated stuff, that yes,...is a bit much.
We more fell onto the Miami crew merely because we enjoy the entire CSI premise,..and we've become a little burned out on the Vegas show. Now all that said, we rarely miss either,..and, we've never
, not a single time,.. seen the NY group.
It's all so subjective, it takes a while "to buy" in to a character. It's merely to wind down, vege out before bed. We don't care for any sitcom stuff, we gravitate toward action genre.
