The rumor is that Jerry Bruckheimer has another CSI on slate for next season: CSI:NY
I used to be a semi regular watcher of the original CSI, but when I tune in now it seems that Grishom has been pushed out to merely a supporting character status. Maybe Bruckenheimer should be putting his creative energy into resuscitating the original CSI.
Do we really need another NY-based show? If they're going to do it, I was hoping for something a bit more interesting like CSI: New Orleans.
New York and New Orleans were two of the locations the producers are considering... I think a lot more interesting was what they were saying when CSI: Miami came out, that the next one would be set overseas (although CSI: French Riviera may just have been wishful thinking on their parts). Still, when I look at good procedurals like Boomtown and Dragnet tanking this season, I think the schedule may be saturated with them. How much more room for crime shows does CBS have on their schedule (or NBC, which is supposedly looking at another Law & Order within the next year or so).
Another one? Sure...flood the market.
Hey. Maybe, they can have David Caruso set up CSI:New York and while he is there he can run into Sipowitz.
I really think the legend of the goose that laid the golden eggs should be mandatory reading for studio executives.
CSI: The Big Easy or CSI: The Big Apple: what a choice. If the next CSI continues the same downward spiral begun when going from CSI to CSI: Miami, I won’t need to watch more than a couple of shows in order to have my suspicions confirmed.
I hardly watch Miami and I'm just catching up with CSI via reruns on tv. One was enough. Two is too much. And three would be overkill. Why doesn't bruckheimer stick to just blowing stuff up?
I'm still holding out hope for "CSI: Fargo".
Too. Much. CSI. I really liked the first one. Then, when the second one came out, and I attempted to watch it. It just didn't have the right feel. And now, I try to watch the first one, but I just can't get into it because there is simply too much. NO MORE!
Yeah, CSI: Fargo would be entertaining.. or, CSI: Truth Or Consequences, NM (now there's an odd combination of shows
Jerry Brucheimer. Biggest hack around. The spinoff to the original is not very good but like the many Law and Order spinoffs people will watch. Arent people selective in their viewing habits anymore? Do we really need another one of these shows??? How about CSI Moonbase?
Look at the proliferation of so-called "reality TV shows" that should be major indicator right there that people have no clue whatsoever.
I like Bruckheimer and I've enjoyed CSI even when it was b-fare relegated to Friday nights with "The Fugitive." But I'm about to drop CSI Miami (despite my love affair with Emily Procter) and would have a difficult time accepting yet another flavor of the series. Then again, "Without A Trace" is very good and "Cold Case" is decent. I'll give it a shot but am highly skeptical.
I'm so tired of seeing citiscapes in all of these programs. I want CSI: Hawaii or CSI: Jackson Hole
Yeah, but the Law & Order spinoffs are GOOD - Special Victims Unit is, IMHO, the best procedural going right now and Criminal Intent is also highly entertaining. Both, also, have carved a distinct identity form their parent show, which I don't know that CSI: Miami has accomplished. As to Bruckheimer being a hack... Yeah, most of his movies stink. But it seems that since Don Simpson's death, he has at least made an attempt to strive for more quality. CSI shows aside, his TV work has generally been pretty good - Without A Trace is a fantastic procedural, and lots of people will add "except The Amazing Race" to their "reality TV must die" rants. Skin also got pretty good reviews. As to whether we "need" another one of these shows, no, we don't, but we don't need much of anything on TV. People do seem to want more, though... And I don't know if it's "more CSI" specifically (although by now that's something of a trusted brand name), but Law & Order has shown that a good one-hour police procedural can get good ratings, both first-run and in re-runs (which is awfully handy when you have holes to fill in the schedule) and can survive cast members coming and going. Viewers like them - though not necessarily the viewers that make noise on the internet, since they tend to be more interested in ongoing stories and these shows tend to be self-contained - and they do more for a network than, say, Ed, the likes of which don't rerun well at all.
"Looks like he got depressurized."
What's sad is that, for all the stuff that pops up on TV that's carbon copies of each other, not a lot truely original pops out; people watch what others do and they do the same. I remember for a while when networks were popping out wild shows, and yes, chunks of them failed, but you at least had some unique concepts.. (Quantum Leap, etc.) and yes, a lot of those shows were garbage (not speaking of QL, which I loved) but at least they were different, a couple more CSIs doesn't strike me as very original. Oh well, Sopranos in a couple months.
