    Was watching CSI this afternoon and thought about how boring it would be if people actually exercised their Constitutional Rights on the show...man, that show would DRAG if they actually had to follow Due Process...

    They would never just walk into a house after the homeowner opened the door, then pull the old 'Can I use your bathroom' trick in order to search around.

    They would never get a DNA swab without a warrant.

    Brass wouldn't just search anyone without arresting them.



    I guess I get into the show too much, I sit there and talk to the actors: "Man, that's a violation of your 4th Amendment Rights, don't let them do that!" or "Ask for a lawyer!", which they never do, they always just come right out during the last five minutes and confess...and just WHY are CSI techs doing all the interviewing in lockup, anyhow?

    Hey, slow day, what can I say?

    I always thought it would be kind of funny to have a really straightforward case that is solved in the first ten minutes of the show, just to throw people.

    No crack houses to clear (sans vest) with the SWAT guys?

    Or how about how fewer the amount of cases they would solve if the science shown was anywhere near real. A DNA test in 45 minutes?? please!

    I was thinking almost exactly the same thing yesterday. My next thoughts were.... "This show sucks" and.. "David Caruso sucks as an actor"...

    I've never seen the show. Is this the one I hear about where the crime scene techs drive Hummers and carry pistols under their suits?

    I never watched him in NYPD Blue, but I've always read how great he was on that show... Man he is absolutely terrible on CSI..

    Caruso made me puke when he was the "hot star" in all those crime drama/soft porn movies.

    I always ask mom where is Lt Dan when the guys on Law and Order are running down the suspects and stuff.

    But how else are you going to make a show about bagging and tagging evidence fun to watch.

    Well, that just has to do w/ people being idiots, not really anything to do w/ the show.

    I think most TV shows would be terribly boring were they based on reality.

    I remember one where a female suspect had just gone to the hair salon and they got her DNA off 'cut hair' they found in her convertible but you can only get DNA from the root of the hair. They seem to catch a break every 5 minutes and I don't know why they need all that action and adventure to make the show worth watching.

    IMO, "The Wire" was the best cop drama ever made because they did almost everything like normal LEO would. They focus one season on a major drug dealer and work thought the whole season gathering intel and evidence to finally getting a major arrest. No large amounts of dna testing and drawing guns every other minute.

    I used to love CSI:Miami. Funny funny show. Until I realized Caruso is overacting on purpose and KNOWS he's over-acting. Then I started wondering if Boobs McFee, Gun Expert, might actually have a brain and just fakes the airhead thing too.

    The thing that drives me nuts is that most CSI types in real life sit in a lab endlessly performing the same tasks day in and day out only to leave the lab for lunch. Meanwhile their backlog is about as long as a TV season.

    I Freakin HATE those CSI shows. I find them incredibly unbeleivable. I dont know how many time I have people ask," Why dont you do it like they do on CSI?" Give me a FREAKIN HATE THAT. I say folks that is a TV show and if we could do that stuff the city would be broke because we cant afford it even if it was real. I hate cop shows. If they made a TV Show about what it was really like to be cop it would be cancelled quickly because people would find it too oring.

    Caruso acting sucks, i'd watch any other CSI except his! In one of the showbiz news said and showed this redhed (nothing against redheds though) carry around a picture of himself to give away instead of just signing autographs... maybe he believes in himself so much he forgot to do better acting
