Straight cheese

I have a pretty easy class schedule this semester. I have a lot of free time especially in the afternoon. One of my activities during this time is watching Spike TV anywhere from 1 P.M. to 6 P.M. because CSI New York or Vegas is always on during this time.

There are many things I really love about the show, but there is one thing I can't seem to get over and that's why I am writing right now.

Every time, and I mean every time, there is about to be a cut in a scene (where they play their theme music and have a few quick shots of various crime scene equipment) they always have a cheesy one liner to drop on us.

One sticks out in my mind particularly from an episode I saw the other day. A woman was found dead in a ballroom that was occupied with hundreds of mannequins. As they were about to cut to a different scene, a male from the show implies that the killer murdered her in front of many witnesses. Then a female from the show responds, saying the only problem is "these witnesses can't talk".

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love CSI: NY and CSI (placed in vegas) but these cheesy one liners can irritate me.

There is another CSI, CSI: Miami, that I refuse to watch though. Not only are the lines from this show outrageously corny, the actor who says most of them is unbearable. Horatio, I believe, has to be one of the worst characters in television or film history. Everything about him irritates me.

I'm going to embed a video found off YouTube where you can watch, and you can either agree or disagree with what I have to say.

Wow I have never watched the show, but after watching this clip I laughed because it looks like a gag reel. That must be like his thing put on glasses and give one liners. Horrible, I used to like him on NYPD Blue too, but wow he's like a D list actor from this reel. Very funny.
