I'm wondering what the hell is going on with all the CSI's (stopped watching Miami, too bright!). The latest Las Vegas episode just seemed to be one big mind control metaphor with Hollywood, reprogrammed chips, almost literal tin man murderer etc. Crazyness.

Miami has entered into a wierd place where veryone talks to each other using short,'crafted' phrases that seem , to the various players, have a great deal of import.
Las Vegas , I think, looks like its vaguely trying to buck the system, bringing in a few more intelligent lines.
Sometimes its like they're just parodying the media's penchant for 'way-out' murders/crimes.
Miami's characters look and sound like 'toy soldiers'. I imagine achild moving them round speaking their lines.
To keep an air of 'joy' about the whole thing I imagined the episode was written for synchrobloggers, as it must seem indecipherable to anyone on a 9-5 etc.
perhaps they feel that TV is 'losing' to the web and have decided its a good idea to enter into it, full on.
Miami - definitely the hallucination of various patients in pschyiatric ward.
