Okay, I finally watched the CSI:Miami episode that is the start of the "trilogy" crossover. I finally gave up on the Miami trainwreck after last season--possibly before the end of the season, I can't remember--but I want to get the whole story of the trilogy even though I don't watch NY either.

CSI ain't known for its continuity. Miami threw out character continuity after the start of season 3. The conjunction of the two actually made me feel like two separate universes were crossing, but never mind... The shock was when Ray got off the chopper to meet Horatio and the latter not only remembered Catherine Willows but offered condolences regarding Warrick.

CSI itself can barely remember Warrick died. That was just bizarre.

I dreamed this afternoon of CSI:Miami--of Horatio and Calleigh getting together.  Oddly enough.  He bought her a huge, beautiful Jacuzzi-style bathtub to prove his affection. 

My brain is weird.

I have to say, it's a pity that Donn Cortez is only writing CSI:Miami novels, because he (or she?) is much better than Max Allan Collins on the whole.  For one thing, the quips are much better...but I have to say, it's this quote (coming from the mouth of Ryan Wolfe) that made me take especial notice: 

"So two socially inept people meet, fall in love and have little geek babies?" 

*blink*  Hmm.  Am I missing something?  Is this person a secret 'shipper?

I already knew that several cast members from Firefly had turned up on CSI, but I finally figured out the actual total, and it makes me wonder if there isn't some subtle wrinkle in the space-time continuum.  *snerk*  To wit:

Gina Torres--Warden Hutton/Zoe

Alan Tudyk--Carl Fisher/Wash

Summer Glau--Mandy Cooper/River

Mark Sheppard--Rod Darling/Badger (who counts as a recurring character), and he also turned up on CSI:NY

Gregg Henry--Roger Culpepper/Sheriff Bourne, and he also guested on CSI:M

Melinda Clarke--Lady Heather/Nandi

That's six.  And Adam Baldwin and Sean Maher had guest roles on CSI:M

I'm glad to see that the CSI casters are recognizing talent, to be sure, but it's still funny. 


...Now that I've looked it up, I'm even more amused to note that seven folks from Prey have appeared on one or another of the CSI shows.  Pity Larry Drake hasn't shown up yet.  Though of course he was on Firefly...

I watched the latest ep of CSI:M on Tuesday. Grr. Way too much bikininess.  Honestly, they could have cut the opening scene in half and substituted some actual plot!  Do they think that the only people watching it are eighteen-year-old males?  No offense to such males, of course, but I suspect the priorities of many watchers are a little different.  Not to mention, apparently that spa is only open to gorgeous slender twenty-somethings?  I can deal with rich, sure, but no one forty-something and slender?  No one twenty-something and voluptuous?  Honestly.  It wasn't even a pretense. 

And Horatio, you have no business messing around with Eric's sister.  I've no objection to age gaps in general, but she is NOT your emotional equal, and my view of you as a stringently moral character is slipping badly.  Not to mention, Eric is her BROTHER.  You are just the boyfriend.  Making him stay at a scene while you go to visit her in the hospital is bad, bad, bad.  It is an abuse of your power as his boss and you definitely know better.  Bad H, no bikini! 

Marisol really doesn't look like someone sick enough to be using marijuana to offset chemotherapy-induced nausea--and what does she have, breast cancer or leukemia?  I think both were attributed to her at different points. 

I liked watching Calleigh.  I always like watching Calleigh, as long as she doesn't go back to curling her hair again.  And Wolfe is a blessing--he's almost Sidle-intense and isn't bad on the eyes either.  And Alexx is always a riot.  I like her very much, for her compassion, her brains, and her wit. 

The plot was relatively clever, and for a moment there I thought Marisol had actually killed the guy they found in her apartment.  And I admire H for covering for Wolfe--give him that, he's usually intensely supportive of his people (which is why the hospital thing shocked me).  I suspect the writers are messing with his character. 

Oh, and guys?  Quit it with the screen-splitting thing.  That is one of the fastest ways to throw me out of the plot and remind me that I am watching a TV show.  If I want pic-in-pic I'll buy a TV that does it.  It's just distracting--and it looks like you're suddenly doing the opener to The Brady Bunch or something.  Sheesh.

I watched last night's CSI:Miami tonight, and found the casefile chaotic. I like a nice complex one, but it was sort of jerky, lurching from conclusion to conclusion, and with a few obvious leaps and holes. Like, Horatio, if you see blood on the wall and furniture of a woman's house, aren't you--as a public servant and a compassionate man--just about OBLIGED to check the building to see if she's still there and in need of help? And that goes for you too, Tripp.

Okay, maybe he did, but it sure didn't look like it. I still think Calleigh wears too much makeup but I could watch the woman for the entire show just for the aesthetics of her.

I do wonder, though, if only the rich and beautiful get into trouble in Vegas. Well, "beautiful" for prime-time TV values of beautiful. Honestly, when's the last time CSI:M showed a home that wasn't something out of a designer magazine? It makes me suspect that the Florida Housing Board has a stake in the show or some such. (No, I have no idea if such an organization actually exists.) And nobody ugly, or even nicely normal, ever seems to get involved in anything. Seriously, there have to be a few somewhere there, even if Miami is a haven for fluffy people. I can understand the desire to make the show attractive to the viewers, but bikinis ad nauseum does get a little tiresome.

Besides, parity would be nice. Like guys in Speedos, for instance. If the women are going to show off that much, the men should too. Never mind that I think Speedos only belong on competitive water athletes--there's such a thing as equal time.

Oh well. It would be fun to do a Ghost Whisperer/CSI:M crossover, just to watch the universe implode...
