I have recently acquired a bad habit. A habit fueled by the DVR and A&E. In the last couple of months, I’ve discovered CSI: Miami. I’ve never watched a current season. I just watch the out-of-order re-runs which seem to comprise about a third of A&E’s airtime. This isn’t typically my genre. Blood, murder, science…in general, not major interests of mine.
Since the airing order of reruns seems to be totally random, I don’t even know a coherent storyline. I get bits and pieces with every show and try to fit it all together.
It’s formulaic and kind of funny. Horatio’s one-liners are always good for a laugh (“champagne? lipstick? looks like our vic was on a…..killer date!”). There’s always a piece of evidence left right where they can find it, but they rarely find it until their second or third visit. A hair, a toothpick…it always offers up the DNA.
They almost always interview the killer a couple times before they figure it out. It doesn’t matter how unpracticed (a 16 yr old girl) or hardened (repeat offender) they are, they always calmly and coolly deny everything. The suspects are never nervous or shifty-eyed. But when the team gets it all figured out, the suspect always goes “okay, I did it” and confesses everything.
The scenery is pretty, the colors are saturated, the people involved are attractive, and they always solve the crime. What can I say? I’m hooked!
