Who is the best CSI NY character

Which CSI series do you like the most?

  • In the beginning I wasn't at all impressed by NY, but since the LOST break I've been watching it more often & I think NY is getting better and better, it's just a shame that "normal" murders never happen, but always some hyper weapons, special forces or mafia clans involved in the cases is the only thing that annoys me a bit.
    With worry & a deep sob I watch the downfall of CSI Miami, Horatio was the senior proletarian & is now more and more to the schoolmaster / loyal citizen who has to deliver his profound message every episode

    Sorry, but how can you think CSI Miami is great. For me, CSI is searching for clues, looking for clues and the perpetrators are convicted based on these findings, because the evidence is sound.

    At CSI Miami, only about 1 minute is used to search for clues, the rest is used to suspect everyone and to torture this person (with the mere presence of Horatio Caine and his shitty poses) until the suspect confesses.
    Oh and Horatio always knows everything, always sees everything and hears things that a normal mortal can never hear. And it doesn't have to go anywhere, it's always there.
    And what is that all about "I talk to them, but I prefer to look at the floor or the air" ???
    And David Carusso said he could play the part forever.
    PLEASE DO NOT

    Lately they wanted to arrest someone because he threw up in the courtroom and this enabled a cleaner to hide a pistol magazine, which was then used by criminals to escape. Zero evidence and based on what they wanted to arrest ???
    And the part where people had their own airfield next to their houses. Then this great Horatio Cain recognized at a glance what was written on a pillow. It was a complex mathematical formula and it says in a split second that it is a formula for a new fuel. The omniscient Lord had spoken.
    And the crowning glory was the part where a man flew an airplane at an altitude of 1000 m and managed to dazzle the pilot with a normal laser pointer and then the airplane crashes ???
    Or even better. Crime scene search for traces (already that was unbelievable) a deep Kerpe in the bed post (bed was made of wood). What do you compare this Kerpe with, of course with sunglasses (which weren't broken) that were lying in front of the bed ???

    For me this series is not a crime thriller but a fantasy series. And that should be the most successful of the three series ??? There is something wrong.
    All characters, really all of them, are so poorly talented as actors.

    I am in favor of this series being canceled

    So please don't take this post as a personal attack. This is my own opinion and I don't mean to offend.

    CSI: Miami! Horatio just comes across as cool

  • So I have to say Las Vegas too. It was just the beginning and the team and the consequences are awesome. I think Horatio is good at Miami, but Tarantino also shot for Las Vegas. That says a lot

  • y-cesc-y 11.08.2008, 11:55

    Las Vegas. In my opinion the only one of the 3 who can still captivate, especially now with the model killer. (It's just a shame that the actor from Gil leaves the series in the 9th season)
    Somehow I just don't like New York and Miami really only consists of the pictures. This has certainly nothing to do with tension since season 4.
    But Navy CIS is still the best American crime thriller.

    I can only agree.

    Spoiler:
    But not only William Petersen (Gil Grissom) is leaving the series, Gary Dourdan (Warrick Brown) and Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle) will also be leaving (season 9). That will probably be the end of this series, there will definitely be another 10 season, but after that, I'm afraid there will be no more seasons.
  • y-cesc-y 08/11/2008, 8:17 pm

    Spoiler: I heard about Gary, wasn't he fired for drug use? Sara too? I think that's a shame. I recently read that Petersen is being replaced by Laurence Fishbourn (or how to write it), and since I don't think much of him as an actor, I think the series is slowly coming to an end.
    But since Petersen is not leaving the series until the 10th episode, at least one can look forward to ending the model murder case.

    For me it’s clearly CSI Miami.

    Sure, the story is dull, but I think the audio-visual game is really great.

    I also like the actor David Caruso

    Las Vegas and New York cannot captivate me at all. You must switch over after two or three minutes at the latest.

  • Hi,
    i really like csi las vegas. it's my favorite csi. everything is just right there.
    I also really enjoy looking at csi miami, but it's too cool for me to be my favorite csi.

  • So, unlike most of the others, I prefer to watch CSI: NEw York, followed by Miami and then Vegas.

    Especially on season one I liked the dark atmosphere, and after Aiden left the show and Lindsay came instead, it's the show that I like most of the characters from.
    I never really got warm with Aiden, even if she had good scenes, and with Syd there is a different forensic doctor.
    What I find a little shame, or what does not really meet my taste, are all the romances that are currently playing.
    But okay - that's life.

    In Miami, I like the pictures a lot, and I also like the characters (even if Ryan is moving away from being sympathetic at the moment , but I like the storyline ^^).
    Basically it is very similar here to NY.

    I also really like to watch Las Vegas, and Grissom's character is definitely my favorite there - it's just a shame that his interest in insects slipped more and more to the rear .
    But that's the only one of the series that I haven't seen a few episodes of.
    It didn't suit my taste here either, as it developed between Gil and Sarah, but again - I'm not the measure of all things, so fate.
    And I'm already grieving for William Petersen's resignation.
    Although I actually think the characters are pretty good, I don't get that 100% warm with either Nick or Warrick. Somewhat paradoxical as I couldn't say why not.

    But in general: I like to look at all three of them, and I will continue to do so.

    Just my two pence,
    Nick

  • Hey
    So I don't want to spoil anyone's good mood now, because everyone here is having a hard time about CSI.
    But I've only seen CSI Miami and CSI New York so far. Not Las Vegas yet. But to be honest, I find CSI Miami and CSI New York terrible. I saw a couple of episodes once and they were really stupid. They hardly made any sense, so the story of the episodes was totally stupid. So at CSI Mimai I think this team leader, this ugly guy with the sunglasses, is totally stupid (my God, I can't think of the name right now). He's always so stupid and I always come across as conceited. And I also find CSI New York totally hollow.
    OKay, so I haven't seen a lot of episodes, but what I saw was enough for me.

    Kind regards. M @ rc

    Horatio Caine.

    Neither do I.
    I don't think CSI is terrible, but I can't really get used to it either.
    I don't really like that the story, in this case the crime, is so much in the foreground that you don't learn anything about the characters.
    I certainly don't know all of the consequences, but I still notice. You don't experience the characters' fears, how they are doing in this case, what they think or feel, or speculate about who is pulling the strings. One shows much more the scientific work and conversations.
    None of this is my case.
    I tend to warm to series where the focus is not on the plot, but on the characters. Their relationships, feelings towards one another, fears, trauma, reactions to different situations and people - where you simply know a lot about the characters over time, both facts (past, pastime, ...) and how they tick inside.
    That's why NCIS, for example, is more my thing than CSI.

    I found CSI LV pretty cool, but with the best will I can not look at CSI Miami - where in Las Vegas they come across as scientists with an insect tick, they come too often to me in Miami with the moral club. And at the end Horatio stands in the sunset and puts on his sunglasses with the good feeling of having once again saved the world from an immoral villain ... no thanks.

    Sorry CSI Miami fans, but I can't stand this. I found CSI NY a bit colorless. Not bad, but a little too boring.

    Can understand what you mean. I also prefer it when the characters also have a life of their own and interact. I think, however, that this is more the case with CSI Las Vegas than with the others. Maybe you will have a look when you have the time and an older episode comes up again.

    I exactly agree. Especially Miami doesn't seem to want to go into the characters anymore. The whole series just seems to focus on the picture at all.

    A good example of how to do it right is Navy CIS.
    There you can still find credible stories to build up the characters.
  • @ *************
    Thank you, the name somehow didn't occur to me.

    And I can only agree that Navy CIS is really a lot better. I think the episodes are much more exciting and Navy CIS is just awesome.

    It's good that the characters are better portrayed in Navy CIS, so their fears and their character traits. Yes, that's right and that makes the consequences better and better. So you are more encouraged to watch the next episode, because firstly you want to see a good episode and secondly, you want to see how the characters go on. I can only agree, so the character "descriptions" are pretty much lost to CSI Miami.
    The Navy CIS team is awesome too. They all fit in so really well. So there is a lot of mood in every episode.

  • Hello, for me it is more like this, which series do not find the worst ...

    I once voted for CSI Miami ...

    Don't think the actors are so bad now, but well they always find some little crumb that one could never see with the eye, or they look for a clue, and 5 minutes before the end they suddenly find it

  • Quote by Marlexx
    ... or you are looking for a clue, and 5 minutes before the end you suddenly find it
    Yes, because that is of course a point in other (crime) series, such as NCIS, yes so is different
    (Don't get me wrong, I've been watching NCIS since it first aired ^^).

    That's just a point that is mostly like that, not only in CSI but also in other series and films. Especially when it comes to this type of crime reduction, it is a matter of finding the decisive clues late.
    (With Law & Order: Criminal Intent on the other hand - and similar formats - you sometimes know earlier who did what, but the whole concept approaches the topic from a different angle).

    And as far as finding the crumbs is concerned: It may seem exaggerated, but you also have to consider that they are trained for exactly that and usually have several years of experience.
    And often enough they are on the move with magnifying glasses or corresponding lamps that simply highlight information.

    So, in my opinion, it's not quite as unrealistic as it might seem.

    Just my two pence,
    Nick
  • Yes, that may be true, but sometimes it's really ridiculous *
    Take a look at Soko Donau or Soko Kitzbühel, it's a rather cheap production but you don't look for crumbs ...

  • I don't know SOKO (I admit, I don't actually look at German things), but are the SOKO series also focused on forensics, securing evidence, etc.?
    Is a serious question, so not sluggishly meant, because I really have no idea.

    Otherwise: Very few things are 100% realistic. DNA profiles were shortened in favor of airtime (just under 45 minutes) through "artistic freedom".
    These are just points that you take into account when producing a series.

    Personally, I found the storyline about the serial killer from the first season great, who had equipped a Halloween gimmick with his fingerprints and thus initially duped Grissom.
    Or the strand around the killer who always left the models behind.
    I also found the two episodes with the gifted girl not bad, which the investigators had fooled (what a shit ).

    In short: I really like the consequences in which they do not identify the perpetrator.
    And even if it may seem like that, I don't want to blindly defend the series. I've thought often enough myself, "Well, what a coincidence".
    But since there are far more unreal things, such small points don't bother me.

    So long
    Nick

    so i like csi las vegas the most. I started with that. at first i couldn't make friends with miami because i didn't like speedle at all. when he was shot and replaced by ryan wolfe, i gladly watched it.
    horatio is partly a really cool pig. i counted ma for fun, he put his glasses on and off for almost 10 ma in one episode.
    there are really horny fooling around from switch reloaded
    at new york mac taylor is pretty cool, but the rest of the team is mostly unsympathetic to me, except for stella.
    but at las vegas i like the whole team. grade grissom can score with sayings, that's awesome

    But I have to admit that in the last few months I have barely come to watch and only started again when the relays have finally become cheaper. at csi I'm now in the third, miami I'll start after that and new york when I'm through with the second at miami.

    but somehow I don't like ncis at all. I watched the ma when the first season came out on tv. I just don't like the team.
