New series of CSI tonight on Channel 5! Having not been keeping up with the US airings, I’ve been quite looking forward to this.
Meanwhile it looks like CSI:NY is back next week. It was always a poor second best to the original show, albeit miles better than CSI:Hammy, but I’m not encouraged by the write-up in this week’s TV & Satellite Week, which seems to promise a complete lack of the show’s only interesting aspects:
In its first series CSI:NY’s dark, shadowy sets, glum acting and focus on its characters’ personal lives left it feeling out of kilter with the rest of the CSI franchise… “We’ve lightened it up in every respect – from the storytelling and humour to the sets, wardrobe and hair,” explains series creator Anthony Zuiker.
Joy. The show where even the hair has highlights.
