I Hate These CSI-Come-Latelys

Regular readers will know I love CSI. The original CSI. The Vegas CSI. Not the cheap Miami ripoff and, though I have not yet seen it, I suspect not the cheap New York rip off.

CSI ain't CSI without Gil, Catherine, Sarah, Nick and Warrick. End of story.

This was proven by Gary Sinise's appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. When Letterman (a McReadie Nuggets fave) asked Sinise whether CSI stood for "Crime Scene Investigations" or "Crime Scene Investigators", Sinise replied it stood for the latter.

No, you dullard. It doesn't. It stands for Crime Scene Investigation. As in "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation".

Jesus - if you're gonna rip off a show, at least get its name right.

    I wholeheartedly agree. CSI is brilliant, the best thing on telly at the moment (and it's only repeats for us here at Taxloss Towers, still stuck in the terrestrial five-channel stone age). CSI: Miami is a steaming pile of pants. It has nothing on the original. One wonders why they bothered making it. I mean, they didn't follow up NYPD Blue with SFPD Blue or Murder One with Murder Two or Chicago Hope with Seattle Hope.

    It's like remaking Dragnet. Have you seen the remake? It stars the Al from Married with Children and it's rubbish. The only good thing about it is the opening three seconds of the theme tune (Dum de-dum dum!), and even that's been "updated" to be a rubbish electronica version. I was so excited when I first stumbled across it while channel-hopping - just those iconic opening bars sent an electric shiver down my spine - but that gave way to intense disappointment so quickly. Even anger. Why not - duh - just repeat the original, you fools?
