CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

weather: cloudy
outside: 7°C
mood: *yawn*
music: Paganini - Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 3, 2nd Movement
We finished watching the second half of the first season of CSI on DVD. I'm a loser, can't catch it on TV and watch it for free like everyone else.

Anthony Zuiker is on crack.

Or his writing crew is. I quite enjoyed the first half of the first season, but this second half felt So Messed Up™ to me. The main characters were taking turns making no sense. Nevermind the actors, I was hollering, "What's the motivation?", "Where did that come from?!" and "You're bloody kidding me, right?".

Several times, I shouted, "WHERE ARE YOUR GLOVES?!?!".

I've noticed that Jorja Fox/Sara Sidle started a certain intonation in her speech that reminds me of condescension. It's not bothering me though, I'm just noticing the inflections. Kinda like when an author uses a certain word over and over again in her novel. Even if they only use it twice, it jumps out at you.

George Eads/Nick Stokes is pretty cute, though I feel like taking a file to both sides of his jaw. I'm glad the hooker situation took care of itself. I had no sympathy there. I would have expected Nick to be more intelligent about it too.

What the fork is Catherine Willows doing with a city Engineer that looks and acts like a used car salesman? Maybe I just have an unfounded neurotic fear of men who are nothing but teeth when they smile and have a striking resemblance to Gaston.

Husband Guy seems to think there was nothing wrong with it. Maybe I'm just too crabby for this. Although, Brother-In-Law Dude says CSI: Miami is worse. So, maybe I should go watch that for a while, then come back to the original and it will, relatively, feel better.

Sara is supposed to be kind of snarky ... women in "men's fields" who have adopted that kind of attitude as a defense mechanism.

I can believe that, but I don't think she's that snarky... sometimes, she's just _stupid_.

Okay, this David Caruso guy is getting a real bum wrap =D

CSI - Las Vegas
Is much much better than CSI - Miami (and it has nothing to do with my dislike of David Caruso). The seasons get better for CSI - Las Vegas (we had misssed the first half before we realized it was even on).

Of course some episodes are better than others. . .

I have that same deal - where if I'm feeling less than 100%, that will color how I feel about a movie, etc.

I think I'm just too old and crabby for TV and movies in general =) There aren't very many that I've liked, good mood or not =P

I'll continue to watch CSI: Las Vegas though. If _you_ say it gets better, I'll give it a chance. I trust you =)

Oh no, I'm feeling the pressure. I have ecclectic tastes - no doubt about it. :)
