    Potato and pen.
    I caught an episode of CSI NY the other day, and noticed the lines spoken sounded as odd as the way characters on CSI Miami used to sound...for the few episodes I watched. (Someone here advised me to not worry about Miami's plot points and dialogue, and just take the whole show as a comedy or parody.)

    I've seen the NY version enough to know it sure didn't USED to be this way, but most of what I've seen is older episodes on cable, not first run network airings.

    What happened? Did the show get infected by whatever has always been wrong with the Miami version?

    I guess it depends on which episode you watched. Most have been decent, to my eyes (and ears).

    I agree, most have been fine for me. I can't tolerate watching the Miami version at all. If this show started to sound too much like it, I would can it quickly!

    Yeah I don't think it has gotten anything like Miami. It does have it's own quirks though. Ever notice that there's is an obligatory chase scene in every episode? ;)

    Piscataway,...
    I bailed on CSI Miami after they started shooting all the lab/office scenes at obscure angles and thru various objects in the lab/office. The characters would be engaging in a conversation and the camera would shoot them thru blinds or colored glass or beakers and if that wasn't enough the camera was constantly moving around. I have a headache just thinking about it.

    They mentioned it in a show I saw recently. (I don't know when it aired. My husband is way behind in his viewing.)

    Those guys chase down another suspect, and one of them says, "Why do they aways run?"

    At least CSI NY has a NON-CSI chasing the criminals. In Miami the CSI are either the first responders or the backup ("a cop was shot and we need to be the backup" - right - as if every cop in Miami wouldn't be there first).

    Heck, in the LV CSI, frequently, the CSIs are first through the door. Yeah, that wouldn't happen.

    I gave up on the Miami one years ago. The NY one was very dark the way it was shot. They have made things less moody now days.
    I was glad to see the LV one do a whole show about the Doc incharge of the morgue.
