With the Hollywood writers strike in full bloom, the series officially voted as the one that will suffer the least is one we mocked relentlessly last week. CSI: Miami with David Caruso.
Every show is already terribly written, each beginning with Caruso arriving late to a crime scene asking, “Whattya got?” He takes his sunglasses off. He crouches at the scene, even if the victim is hanging from a hydro pole. Then one of his colleagues says something completely innocuous and, as he replaces his sunglasses, Caruso responds with something completely witless. He then rushes out of the camera frame, presumably because he’s embarrassed by what he just said.
Yet the writers on this show deem Caruso’s words to be so beautifully delivered, so clever, so beautifully hit out of the park they can immediately rush to the show’s musical intro.
But the proof is in the video pudding below. And Frank, I never liked pudding.
