CSI: Miami 4/28

Pretty good episode last night. Both storylines were solid - the "biter" with the crowns was flat-out creepy.

Nice to see Sean Maher (The $treet, Ryan Caulfield: Year One) back on the small screen - if only in a small, supporting role.

It will always be known as the "Girls Gone Wild" episode.

I can't watch this show anymore. The officers violate so many rights: not having a lawer present, searches without warrants, forcing suspects to give up DNA samples, and so much more. They may catch the bad guy and somehow get them to confess everything in the interrigation room with no lawer, but I bet every case that goes to court would get thrown out because of the shoddy police work.

Then everytime they have video or photo evidence, they can somehow enhance the picture to find the most minute detail from the worst shot. Lifting the fingerprint from the finger whiping the camera lens was terrible. Who uses their finger to clean a lens anyways?

That's not the worst part, though. It's that they portray these crime scene investigators as detectives. They are interviewing suspects, and putting the puzzle together. That's the detective's job. They are just supposed to collect the evidence.

Actually, the CSI's in Miami have greater latitude in their police powers (then the Las Vegas CSI unit), which is why you see the Miami crew always packing heat on every crime scene they investigate.

The Vegas CSI's carry guns too. I've seen Warrick, Nick, Katherine and Sarah all carry a gun at one time or another. With that said, I'm just speaking in real life terms. There's no such thing as this CSI position that the TV shows have created. In real life, they collect the evidence, and the detectives do the interrogating and the piecing together of the puzzle pieces. I know it's just tv, but it's still a pet peeve.

I agree - both shows throw plausibility out the window in the name of entertainment.

It's seems to be getting worse too.

I know. Like, I was watching The X Files the other day, and these two FBI agents are investigating a case, and one of them gets hit over the head by an alien. And I was like, come on!, aliens don't go for the head, they go for the throat.

For the record, I've never seen them perform an illegal search, refuse someone a lawyer, or forcibly obtain a DNA sample. And, I hate to say it, but if you think that people don't confess without a lawyer and get convicted, you're wrong.

That being said, CSI: Miami has plenty of other problems.
