Do you think CSI Miami is very realistic?

The other month I was watching a rerun of CSI Miami (formerly my favorite show) and noticed how unrealistic the plot line was. Granted, this is just a TV show and of course, they are going to dramatize things to make them more interesting for viewers. But, the story line was about three women (triplets) who were pulling a scam on a really rich guy. One of them married the rich guy and then the other two took turns swapping out with her to pull the scam. One had his kid (the wife's sister) and the other one showed up for special occasions like parties and ski trips. How unrealistic is that! And, to make matters worse, they killed him. Or, at least thought they had killed him. Turns out they really killed his duplicate, some fellow that he hired to make public appearances for him. Turns out this other guy had received one hundred thousand dollars of plastic surgery for this job of a lifetime! The whole thing was ludicrous. Who goes through that much trouble to swindle someone out of their money. Sometimes I think the writers on the show should take a clue from real life swindlers and crooks. How do they expect us to believe the stuff they are dishing out.

They are getting more unrealist each day. I don´t like this show because of that. How can someone have a DNA analisis in just two hours? And find the match in just a second? Now the thing that annoys me the most is the way people work on computers in the series (not just CSI). They just digit a lot. Like they are writing some huge text (maybe on Mylot? :) ) Now, that would be right if they were pretending to be writing, but they are pretending to use graphic programs like Photoshop. You must use the mouse, they don´t do that. Maybe some legal problem with the mouse?

That's so funny, but true! My spouse is an artist and works with lots of computer art software programs (Photoshop, etc.), and I rarely ever see him use the keyboard for anything, just the mouse. These TV crime shows should at least respect their viewers intelligence, even if they don't respect our time. Thanks for your insightful post, drop by anytime!

That is Law and Order, but some cases on CSI: Miami are very similar to real life.
