Revel in... the power of... 'CSI: Miami'

93414__david_lIf you’re a fan of CSI: Miami, or you’re not, or, especially if you’re like me, and tune in occasionally just to revel in the sheer lunacy of David Caruso’s performance as Horatio Caine, then the following YouTube video is for you. (Thanks, MetaFilter, for the heads-up.) It’s clip after clip after clip of the hyper-serious one-liners Caruso delivers before each episode’s opening credits (along with the opening howl of the theme song, the Who’s "Won’t Get Fooled Again," as a rimshot). All together now, let’s get in touch with our inner Carusi: "Well it looks like…" (sunglasses on) "…something…" (dramatic pause) "…caught her." (YEAAAAAHHHH!) Good times, people, good times.

    That was a great link on youtube.
    I don’t get the attraction either. I watch it sometimes in the summer when what I usually watch is in reruns. At that time this season I watch Studio 60. But when we do have it on, my husband usually does a Caruso imitation. I mean, it’s like having Star Trek on and not doing Kirk.

    Strangely I don’t think Grissom’s oneliners are usually that cheesey. Of course they aren’t accompanied by the whole sunglasses ritual. That could be the difference (or not).

    Had I known Caruso’s cheap one-liners would be on YouTube one day, I would have found something else to do between 10 and 10:05 on monday nights. I usualy watch just to hear what he’s going to say and change channels when the credits come on.

    Sometimes you eat the ham and sometimes the ham eats you. YOWWW!

    this is so money. i could not stop laughing. it’s hard to figure out why CSI: LV is so good and CSI: MIA is SO. BAD. the whole show is terrible lately. i dont need the characters to explain every little stupid thing to me. we are smart enough by now to know a bullet is going to ballistics and a swab is going to DNA. geez.

    David Caruso: The William Shatner of the new millenium.

  • Christine

    Hilarious! It really is the most self-righteous, cornball show.

  • Tommy G.

    This is the only reason why I watch CSI: Miami – Horratio’s one liners (and occasional vigilante shooting) are the best part! What – did you really think I tune in for the believeable plotlines and intelligent dialogue?

    ha ha ha… that’s great… anyway, off topic, but a very cool friend of mine is in the show tonight!!! so I’m sending shout out to Teddy Sears!!! via E.W. watch C.S.I. Miami tonight, cause he’s on, and catch the onliners.
    PS: MIKE! Sometimes you eat the ham and sometimes the ham eats you.
    Love IT!

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! My man loves this show and I can’t help but snort in disbelief at the whole thing. SO cheesy and do they really think the audience is THAT dumb? Also, notice how David Caruso cocks his head to the right all the time, especially if he’s trying to be serious.

    David Caruso is one of the best actors on TV who doesn’t bother to act anymore. However, his performance does make for one great drinking game: Take a shot each time he takes off, or puts on, his sunglasses. You’ll be under the table in twenty minutes.

    Where have you guys been? He’s been doing this since 2002! I believe he’s simply decided to play Horatio Caine as if he was Batman without the cape and cowl. Just notice how many times he exits a scene Batman style: Now you see him; now you don’t!

  • Laura

    ROFL!!! I could not stop laughing while watching this thing. I think the constant cuts to the “Yeeaaaah!” theme music is what really pushed it from hilarious to rolling-on-the-floor hilarious. Dsven said it: Caruso IS the new Shatner.
    Thanks for posting this Slezak!

  • nathan

    Thank God for David Caruso, if not for him there would be no reason to watch that show at all……..Yaaaahhhhhh.

  • Tim

    Two reasons why I watch CSI: Miami: Emily Proctor. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
    Can’t forget the ‘Alex, what do we have here’ line as H kneels by a corpse.
