Do you like procedural drama shows like CSI, CSI: New York, CSI: Miami, CSI: Spinoff 4, CSI: Cold Case, CSI: Law and Order, CSI: CSI, CSI: Numbers, CSI: Letters, CSI: Without a Trace, Law and Order: SUV, or Jag: We're CSI Too, etc?<br><br><br><br>
Or have you had one red herring* too many?<br><br><br><br>
*term used loosely

Procedural dramas in regards to "cop shows", or also including things like Prison Break, 24, Lost, etc.<br><br><br><br>
Because I love Prison Break - but CSI:73235435^2 not so much

Procedural crime dramas like the ones listed where they follow a series of clues to a logical conclusion and usually you know who the killer is before the first commercial break but you watch it anyway.<br><br><br><br>
Shows like 24, Prison Break and Vanished are serials and should have been made into movies because the premise is so thin and by season two my disbelief has been suspended into outer space.<br><br><br><br>
Lost rocks.<br><br><br><br>
Why didn't my poll show up...or how does that work?

I'm a L&O addict, but just the original and CI. I don't watch any of the others regularly. What I like about L&O is that it's all about the case. We don't have to put up with any office romances or endless complications in the characters' personal lives. That stuff gets old for me pretty quickly. Even though there is a lot that is unrealistic about L&O (<i>everyone</i> confesses, cases that would take years to solve take one hour, etc.), I like that it raises a lot of ethical/legal questions and that it's "ripped from the headlines."

Seriously, I click submit post.<br><br><br><br>
I wait a week.<br><br><br><br>
I get the screen to type my three poll questions:<br><br><br><br>
- Love 'em<br><br><br><br>
- Shove 'em<br><br><br><br>
or<br><br><br><br>
- I have an irrational fear of Gil Grissom's beard<br><br><br><br><br><br>
And then I clicked okay, or whatever it was. I wait another week.<br><br><br><br>
And nothing happened.<br><br><br><br>
So I waited. And I waited some more.<br><br><br><br>
And then I clicked again only to be told my five minutes were up—no poll for you!<br><br><br><br>
This place is, like, retarded slow. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

I love Lost, but it doesn't seem to fit with this thread. Unless I'm missing something.<br><br><br><br>
I don't like procedural dramas very much, especially if there's any amount of blood or gore.

Nope. You're cool.<br><br><br><br>
I'm talking shows that feel the need to pass a camera through a body as if to follow the trajectory of a bullet and such like.<br><br><br><br>
Lost is not a procedural crime drama. If it is, then it's an even more confusing show than I thought.<br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

I love CSI, CSI: Miami, and CSI: NY! Have downloaded and watched every episode from all three series. I have not heard of the other CSI's you mentioned, but am very interested in checking them out.

You forgot The Ultimate Fighter which you love. You know you do. Why you gotta lie and say you don't? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Very innocently, I tuned in to Law and Order: SUV.<br><br><br><br>
Imagine my shock when I found out it was about sex crimes and had nothing to do with crimes against SUV's.

JC, I added a poll for you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I voted for shove 'em. I used to be addicted to the original L&O, but I eventually got tired of it. I never had any interest in the spinoffs or the CSI shows. I watched the first season of Numbers and that was enuf for me. I do love "Monk", if that fits the category, but mostly for the humor and Tony Shahloub's acting (he's a 3 time Emmy winner!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
