If the only episodes you’ve seen were either New York or Miami, then yes, it is very very bad. CSI: Las Vegas is pure entertainment. The characters have more personality than ALL the characters in ALL the other crime dramas, ( except for the occassional hooker or lunatic who only get to appear for one episode.)
There have only been a few episodes that contained “gore”. Inorder to show what these people see in their line of work, they have to show what these people see in their line of work. The only other alternative is for the characters to stand around and talk about things that were never seen on camera, like on NYPD Blue. :rolleyes:
It’s not the best show out there, but atleast it’s original. Or atleast it was original until it was allowed to reproduce.
