Maybe it’s the Chardonnay, but I think that I spoke too soon in my last post; Horatio Caine is the man. If Jim Carrey is doing impersonations of him, he’s gotta be doing *something* right. I haven’t watched CSI: Miami in ages and although Horatio is as annoying as ever, I can’t help but revel in his deliberate cheesiness. Horatio’s character is self-reflective; he’s in on the joke. The bright, super sweet candy colors may be a bit jarring, but are so emblematic of the glitterati Miami/South Beach lifestyle that so many of us living in colder climates envy. Season 5 is doing some pretty exciting things by changing the conventional CSI template…the filming is – at least for mainstream primetime – cutting edge. It has evolved.
One thing that the Chardonnay can’t mask? The cast. Puh-lease. They are still my least favorite of the three. Sorry David Caruso.
