I tried watching CSI during it’s first season, and I didn’t like it. The episodes I watched had predictible endings, and I just didn’t find the cast engaging.
However, I decided to give CSI:Miami a shot, because I already liked the male cast members. David Caruso was in some movies I’d seen before the season started; Rory Cochrane, Mr. Indie movie himself, was in my favorite comedy; Adam Rodriguez was in “Roswell”…and none of the women on the show annoyed me overly much in the pilot. After I watched the first episode, I kept watching, and I haven’t missed an episode. A few weeks back I decided to give CSI another shot, and I still don’t like it.
So, I know there are many CSI fans who grumble about how much they dislike CSI:Miami, but are there are other dopers who prefer CSI:Miami?
