CSI > CSI Review: WTF?!? > Comments Page 3
I used to love CSI, but it has never been the same since "Grissom" left. It wasn't too bad in the previous season, but it is almost too bad to watch this season. The story lines are ridiculous and writing is just horrible. The puns are OUT OF CONTROL!!! Enough already. Sweat stain..."test that for DNA"..."no sweat." OMG, really? Enough! The writers need to use all their creativity for the story line and stop wasting energy on stupid puns!
I'm going to give it one more episode, but if next weeks is as dumb as this one was. I'm no longer a fan!
You captured everything my friend & I were saying about this episode last night right down to the Smeagol jokes. We laughed through most of the episode especially whenever Paul Guilfoyle said 'sqweegel'.
This reminds me of what happened w/ the X-Files. The writers screwed up the mythology so bad to the point of collapse. I think they underestimated the intelligence of their audience. CSI is doing that now. Now I watch to laugh at the writing. I give props to the cast for keeping straight faces with this stuff.
This review was great. Thanks for voicing the thoughts of intelligent viewers.
I agree with this review, on every single point. I mean, I've read FANFIC that is ten times better than what the writers have been coming up with the past couple of seasons. The Jekyll storyline was patently ridiculous, and now we get a serial killer named Sqweegel of all things?
The writers have also consistently broken the rules they created for their CSI world, and it really is like they're not even trying any more. It seems everyone involved with this show is cashing a paycheck right now. Anthony Zuiker seems to be using CSI as one big commercial for some stupid book he wrote featuring none other than our pal Sqweegel (I keep wondering how he came up with that, and if he was seriously sitting at his word processor going "Oooh, Sqweegel, that's just chilling!!!").
I just used to be a huge fan of the writing on this show and it's sad to see how ridiculous it has become. While I actually like Fishburne's portrayal of Langston, I think they should have quit while they were ahea
CSI has never been the same since Grissom left! Their plots lately have been more like a science fiction comic book story! This used to be one of my favorite tv shows but I can take it or leave it now.
Gotta agree... I watched this show every week when Grissom was on, and gave it a chance when Langston came on board. But I lost interest and stopped watching for awhile. I watched it last night and was shocked at how bad this show has become. Incredibly stupid plot, really bad writing. "Sqweegel" was more laughable than scary.
And the guy in the sex shop, who sold the latex suit. OK, the customer gave a fake name. But they didn't ask for a description? Get a sketch artist in maybe?
