I can't watch CSI MIAMI for more than a few minutes in HD or SD.
He's so damn annoying.

I TOTALLY agree......Caruso is the total HAM and I can't stand CSI Miami because of all his mugging and his one liners about how they will catch/solve/find/deal with things.

PGA Golf on NBC Television! :eek2:



Yeah, ain't it funny how they don't seem to be able to spend the bucks to have all HD cameras out on the course.

I'm embarrassed for them...

They embarrass themselves when they ASS/U/ME that their HD viewers won't
notice the difference.

Wake up, NBC, we're not blind -- we can tell when you're cutting corners on us!
