I hope the writers of CSI Miami get their crap together. In more than one episode I've noticed the "registered gun" reference. Some dead person appears, some bad guy is investigated and they want to know where the "registered gun" is, or some other reference to the weapon.

Sheesh... CSI Miami takes place in Florida, not the PROK, handguns are not registered.

Why are you watching that shit?

The only time I've watched CSI miami was when I wanted to laugh at how bad it was. Oh, and when tony hawk was a guest star, because I wanted to see him act.

That redheaded guy is the worst actor on TV. He even gives old bill shatner a run for his money.

I love the way he will tell a badguy, or some innocent "suspect" that they better not get on his bad side!!! WTF??!!! Yoda throws-down better than Detective Horatio Caine!!!

I've never seen Detective Horatio Caine involved in any fights. Shit, I ain't seen him do more than drive around in a Hummer H2, threaten somebody, and solve the case pretty much single handed!!

That show is crap. Its even worse when real life police officers and detectives call crime labs under the assumption even a fraction of that show is real life.

If I'm ever victim of a crime, I hope I'm in Miami. They'll put 40 cops on a case and have shackles on the perp in 24 hours.

They have really f'ed-up weather in Miami, apparently. The men all wear dark jackets day and night, and the women all wear sleeveless tops and short skirts. Not that I'm complaining!

It just freakin kills me when there are like 40 freakin cops and CSI's on scene already and then you hear the obligatory siren of some new dude just pulling up to the scene still going code 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF????????? If people did that in real life they would get a serious ass-chewing from all the folks already working on-scene. It seriously jacks with your hearing having people pull that shit

God I hate that show. CSI New York is pretty bad too, but its like 5000% better than CSI Miami.

When are they going to stop with these shows? Does anyone recall a newstory about juries being less likely to convict because of these cop shows? They think there is always that perfect magical piece of evidence, because they always find it on CSI.

both those show suck, add in law and order, its kinda like theres cops writting the episodes to promote bad info to the easily impressed public so that if/when one of them gets involved in a situation they blab out a vouluntary statement before asking for an attorney.

I love how they pry bullets out of the wall with a screwdriver or a knife blade. I'm sure the ballistics techs just love that shit. Round here, that'll get you fired.

You see the RPG episode?
Terrible - everyone who fired an RPG wound up with a black eye and that is how they found them.
Know what was even more precious?
The people shooting the RPGs were all anti-illegal immigration folks.
Oi.

I like how the pistol bullets are almost always lead, and that the jacketed ones are always blown to bits.

That's the only episode I watched and I was screaming at the tv about their stupidity.

1) RPG's don't recoil that way; in fact, they barely recoil at all! Simple physics, people!

2) The guy launching an RPG from his car was precious. Nice going dumbass, you just flash-fried yourself, the interior of your car, and blew out the windows to boot. Oh wait, no you didn't- they don't pay attention to simple physics on CSI Miami.

3) Oh wow, nice political statement you fricking commie pro-illegal immigration bastards.

Makes me wanna smuggle in an RPG myself just to launch it at the producers.



I watch the original CSI when I'm in the mood, but the others I ignore. Miami just pisses me off, seriously.

The jack ass cop who arrested me in Austin Texas when i was going home from the Hun Farm asked me if my guns were registered.

I tried watching that show from the start but they lost me on the very first episode.......a plane crash in the swamps(Jet Blue style) and the CSI team starts hauling ass out there in their brand new H2.......then they get there and they do all the investigating, NTSB NEVER shows up...........

Tell me about it man.
Fuckin' retarted.
Then they ripped on the one detective for complaining that the store keeper didn't speak english.
The CSI guy says "Oh yea? Well why don't you try learning spanish" or something to that effect.

The original CSI is tolerable because at least Grissom acts like a scientist that he is suppose to, instead of cops like the other twos. Somebody should remind the ginger kid he's not in NYPD Blue anymore.

BACKBLAST AREA CLEAR!

IMHO, it would be nice if the folks putting a weapon system on TV actually bothered to pay attention to what they were doing....

The dumb thing is that there are plenty of other 'ways' they could have worked the !#%!# rocketlauncher angle into said TV show (have someone get fried for standing behind the damn thing, or whatever...

But RECOIL? Scope Eye???

Somehow I think that show was orignally written for a .50BMG, not a RPG...

As for gun registration, most people ASSUME that guns are supposed to be 'registered'

My dad was suprised when I told him there was no firearm registration in Wisconsin...

peeked in our "lab"...small office converted into the "CSI" lab....couple of outdated leftover tools and a old fishtank to smoke the fingerprints...there is not one PC in the lab.

That shows glass and chrome cost more than all the "equipment" we have

dont forget that ANY video camera can be zoomed and "cleaned up" to a factor of 10,000 times. so that grainy video from the store can be zoomed in, across the street, reflected off a window, and their computer extrapolates the perp which is reversed in the reflection but the computer rebuilds his face and looks for a match in some non-existant master databaes and will give them his current address.

Yeah, that's always the biggest thing that kills me about these detective shows. They always have some digital photograph that isn't quite clear enough, so the lead detective says,"Enhance that."

Then the monkey boy on the PC looks at him like,"Gee! I never thought of doing that before,"And some how magically creates a perfect picture of the face out of data that doesn't even exist.

Not to mention all the beeps and noises that the computers always make when they are enhancing images. Good thing those CSI's have that nice speaker system hooked up to their PC's! Otherwise they wouldn't get to hear all those fancy beeps that let them know that the computer is doing something!

I like how it seems that half of the few epi.'s I've seen have that annoying Horatio guy getting in a gun fight and killing someone. I don't know about you but I thought most COPS go through their carrer without killing someone, and he is a frickin crime scene investigator, not uber tactical swat team leader!!

The original CSI is OK, but I don't watch that much anymore. I saw the one with the rolling gun battle earlier this season. I had to laugh when the black guy says after the guy with the stupid mustache test fires an AK "I got overfiring AKs a long time ago" I also noticed that the detective(Brass is his name, i think) loads up his 9mm Sig P228 with FMJ
