CSI: Miami Season 8
I may be the only person I know who actually likes David Caruso in his role as Horatio Caine. It’s his gentle, calm and understanding nature that I love. His character is a role model to how we should approach life. It’s been too long since I last watched CSI: Miami, and whilst I enjoyed getting to know Horatio all over again, the rest of the show was somewhat lacking.
You’d have thought that a show that ran to ten seasons would be pretty awesome, but when you look at the stats, you see that the ratings really started to drop off with Season 8.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed watching Season 8, but mostly for Horatio. It seemed like he was the only one who still gave a dam, as the other actors really seemed to be just going through the motions, doing just enough to collect a paycheck.
The series as a whole feels more like a technology dependent police drama stuck inside a music video with acting that would make Days of Our Lives look impressive.
There are some interesting cases, and some taught action, but by the time the cliffhanger ending comes along, you just wish that everyone would fall over dead so you could move onto something else. Which is quite ironic in a way.
