I agree 100%. Our family likes both LV and NY but CAN'T STAND Miami! The colors are definitely part of what we don't like. To each his own I guess

Never have liked Caruso since he left NYPD Blue. Just seemed to arrogant IMO. That's the main reason I could never get into Miami. Really like the other two.

To me, Caruso's character was so over the top that the role appeared to be aiming for a caricature of the prototypical hard ass buffoon. 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.

Miami did seem to be much more "action" oriented...

I don't care for Miami either.But I watch it because of the CSI premise.Is there anyone over 30 besides Horatio and the bald cop,living in Miami?Nothing but young beautiful people who spend all their time around swimming pools.Just seems so ....artificial.

I can't watch CSI: Miami because of Caruso. How can this guy not know how much of a really bad actor he is? Maybe he does but is laughing all the way to the bank.

I watched Miami for a while but it jumped the shark when that younger CSI, Eric, was shot in the head and was back at work three or four shows later. Plus I like Vegas more because it is more science-oriented and I been watching ever since it started.

I like it when they focus on the other characters sometimes. Hodges was his old annoying self again. Good to see Pamela Reed back on TV again too.

Just when you think the show is losing its edge, they crank out an excellent episode like this one.

Nice job...Glad they didn't kill Marg off, and she sure is a fast healer, huh...How about a last scene of her having Coffee with Billy Petersen, wouldn't that have been something?
Strip Club was invigorating...

I also thought that Grissom would make a cameo appearance. Hope Marg stops by once in a while as an FBI investigator to help the lab. Good 2-parter..

When is she going? Will it be for good?

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way.

Already gone. This has been pretty widely known since she announced last summer she was leaving the show and CBS has been hyping it up like crazy since the holidays. Marge is out and Elisabeth Shue (the Babysitter) is in!

Sorry, I don't follow those gossip type, Hollywood, rumor mill sites.
Elisabeth Shue the replacement?? What a switch that will be. Looks like she aged a bit;

I honestly thought that last shot in the diner was going to be Marg talking to Shue when they didn't show the blonde's face for a while.

Yep, but after all the hype, it kinda ended in a whimper didn't it?! Months of promos... 2 "nail biting" episodes (from the promo talk)... but the only exit talk took about about 5 minutes at the end! Seems they could have had her wrestling a little more throughout with the option, talking to DB maybe about it, then working up to the end.

Well, Here's my Sig!!!

The thing that makes me furious on the CSI and most other police shows is when a citizen is in danger the cop or CSI never initiate radio calls the nearest patrol units. The CSI's should always be met at the door by the responding cops who arrived 3-10 minutes earlier.

At least the Las Vegas crew do not follow Horatio Caine's entry. Order of entry: Caine (with his pistol) first, followed be the less capable SWAT team.

I thought the same thing, I mean some cop must have been closer than waiting for CSI to make it out of the lab, get in a car and drive to the scene it's one of those things I have to overlook to be able to enjoy the show

I can suspend the disbelief up to a point since they really do have to juice things up a bit to make things interesting for the viewer. LV treads right on the line for me as to being too blatant. Agree that Miami was way over the top though, at least in the first 1/2 season or so that I watched before bailing.

Agree. NCIS for the most part has it right. The special agents do the investigating and enforcement stuff while Ducky and Abby do the lab stuff.

I sometimes wonder if the detectives in the homicide squad do nothing but play cards during their shifts. Seems Brass can handle the entire load.

I guess he can handle it now since they went from two crimes per episode down to one in recent years.
