What Television Should Have Been
If you want to know what CSI is all about, imagine this: the smart nerdy kids from your school grew up and wrote a show about smart nerdy adults who solve crimes with science. They also had the good taste to make the show plot driven instead of character driven, so that the show isn¿t sidetracked by the main character¿s private lives (imagine a crime show that doesn¿t revolve around who is sleeping with whom!). We are given enticing glimpses into those private lives from time to time, but we are never shown too much. The science is interesting and the felons are believable. The actors are good and work well in their character¿s roles in the ensemble. This is more than a strong show, it is some of the best TV we have had in a very long time. The show obviously grew out of the popularity of the various forensic shows that are so popular on cable, and keeps to the science that made those shows work. This is what television should have been...
