The new series of CSI Miami was on tonight. I wasn't happy with it, it seemed to have exchanged a strong plot-line for lots of slow-mo looks at the pretty actors and flashy light effects. Horatio shot someone dead that he could have probably merely wounded, and stuck his fingers in the blood. Then he went into a church and was looking at his bloodied fingers in a quasi-Lady MacBeth way. Quite expected an "Out out damn spot".

I've always seen him as a relentlessly straight-up good guy doing what he thinks to be right, no matter what, so I found these scenes a bit unexpected.

I wonder if this series has a new director or writers. The actual forensic work seemed very much pushed to the background.

CSI NY was good though.
