'Too Many Forensic Shows'
17 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of those annoying crime "investigator" shows is following the Las Vegas CSI around on a case as Gil and Catherine walk into a big hotel to check out a crime scene. Gil tells the cameraman, "There are too many forensic shows on TV."

That great line opens this episode. I am sure William Petersen enjoyed saying that line, as he was quoted years ago as being against a second CSI show, much less three, plus other copy- cat efforts on TV.

Anyway, the local CSI investigates after a seriously-wounded woman staggers out of a room, also the victim of some kind of date-rape assault in which she was tied up. Who did this? It doesn't help that the victim can't remember much expect that a fireman came to her door. That's the story for the episode. There are no secondary crime stories.

At first, I didn't the way they handled the filming, most of it through the lens of the tabloid- TV camera, which means just one straight-on angle, weaker sound than normal, etc. However, as it went on it served its purpose: providing something a little different. The flashlight-camera was kind of cool.

Humor was provided by the nerd-ish "Hodges," who mugged for the tabloid cameraman. Meanwhile, the case involves a guy with a "foot fetish." Man, these Las Vegas shows get weird at times.
