CSI. Television For Idiots.

CSI Las Vegas. CSI New York. CSI Miami. The products of Jerry Bruckheimer's monstrously excessive ego, they are an omnipotent presence on prime-time TV screens the world over, and they are frighteningly plebian creations at that. Played out like pyrotechnic L'Oreal ads, they lack anything even approaching the simplest forms of self-awareness, wit, intelligence, dramatic tension or development.

"Now here comes the science bit... concentrate."

My argument is this: if you like CSI, you are an idiot. Hardly a revelatory statement to the more informed amongst you, but it is a preface to the following hilarious collection of Caruso one-liners. Wow.
