No more will we see you, Horatio, walking into a building with your shades on and then speaking. in sentences of no more. than six words.
You turned the show into such a parody of the original that it became bad, bad, bad, TV.

I thought that it was the most popular of all the CSI'S, you're telling me it's cancelled, that's odd.

I'm most sorry to see "The Finder" go. It was my favorite this season.
I also liked "GCB" very much.
I can't believe 'they' have cancelled these shows. No one but me watches, I guess...

Not that anyone cares what I think lol, but the Miami version of CSI was always my LEAST favourite, not just because I can't stand Caruso as an actor (I didn't even like him in the otherwise really good cop show where he apparently got his "legend in his own mind" opinion of his acting abilities lol), but because ALL of the other characters in the show were WAYYYY too good looking to be believable (really, folks? Have you actually BEEN to your local major city morgue???).

I always liked the original (Vegas) one the best. The complicated but endearing character of "average joe" Gil Grissom was fabulous. When Mr. Petersen left the show, that was clue one (at least for me) that the entire series would soon die a slow death (no pun intended of course ~~~0). I watched one season of Lawrence Fishburne in the role and didn't watch ANY of them after that.

(shrugs at the "demise")

oh, and Pan Am was merely an attempt to cash in on the "Mad Men" retro craze. Horrible show. Not surprised it didn't "pan out". Maybe they should have thought of a different title, it might have lasted an extra season ~

Ted Danson is now in the lead investigator role now.
Man, he sure looks strange now with his white hair!

Horatio always reminded me of a turtle, the way he cocked his head. That being said, (:) I liked the show very much. Of course no one in the morgue looks like they should be there...Except maybe the dead.

My favorite was always the original Las Vegas venue. I absolutely agree with the comment about Fishburne. That was my last visit there, too.

I will miss all of the CSI's as they succumb to the whatever takes them out.
