CSI: Crime Scene Investigation – S07E15

14 02 2007

I watch CSI out of habit these days, I’m just waiting for the break up of the team including the cause, so I can get involved in the subsequent inevitable bashing of the new guys. Recently I thought the cull had started, when William Petersen announced he was going on sabbatical. they brought in Liev Schrieber, and I wasn’t impressed with his first two episodes. The writers really played up the fact that he was dark and mysterious, with skeletons in his closet. And I convinced myslef I didn’t actually care.

Well the dust has settled on Super Bowl XLI. The ratings are in, 93 million viewers in the US. The second largest Super Bowl audience of all time, and behind the series finale of M*A*S*H, the third largest audience in US television history.

What I’m watching Tonight…

30 01 2007

I’ll be watching Prison Break, Heroes and 24. Back to back to back. In that order. But if that combo doesn’t tickle you, and you are in the UK, I would advise you to turn it to five at 9pm and watch the season 7 premiere of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. In an attempt to stave off the threat of Greys Anatomy in the same timeslot in the US, the writers break with tradition and introduce an ongoing mystery which is quite intriguing. But that isn’t why you need to watch tonight.

A while back I wrote a post about TV’s number one detective, Horatio Caine. The Showbiz Show put together a little montage of Horatio one-liners. Well some nice person on Youtube has put together what seems like every one-liner David Caruso has ever spoken, followed by the start of the CSI Miami theme tune. It’s funny, but that scream from Roger Daltrey will start to annoy you within 2 minutes..

I challenge you to make it through this 7 minute video. If you do there is a nice twist at the end, from an episode I haven’t seen. But then I only ever watch the first 3 minutes of CSI Miami, for this very reason. And don’t just skip to the end!

Farewell Gil…

Gil Grissom

According to TV Squad, William Petersen will be taking a short sabbatical from CSI after next week’s episode on CBS. The word on the street is that he may not come back. Without the mordern day Columbo that is Gil Grissom, is this the beginning of the end of CSI’s domination of TV schedules all over the world??
