CSI: Reality

CSI: without the hollywood aspect

CSI: is well known for being criticized for it's scientific accuracy. Computers that analyze DNA in seconds, technology that doesn't actually exist, extremely high success rates at evidence recovery that are unlikely/impossible in real life, etc.

This idea is basically just for your typical CSI: drama, but without all the Hollywood prettiness. The show would have the same premise as the current CSIs, but the cases would be solved using real-world tech. No DNA analysis in seconds, no fake technology, etc.

       So, it's a TV show, just less exciting?

       Would it continue to overuse the montage method of making science seem exciting; lots of moodily lit, musically backed, fade shots of people looking down microscopes, sucking their pencils or shining UV torches at things, along with the physical dramatisations of impact wounds, explosion-triggers and melting ice-blocks - take all that away from CSI, and what are you left with except a load of Hammy characterisation?

       Yeah, I get tired of the speed at which I.M. injections take effect on the show "House M.D.". I am a staunch believer in reality in entertainment. If it aint believable, it aint worth watching, I always say. [+]

       Now you've done it. We hope you're pleased with yourself.

       /but without all the Hollywood prettiness/   

       Except for the hot hot hotties, which need to stay. They can use all the real world tech to solve crimes that their hot hotness needs to.

       @21Quest: I watch Forensic Files quite frequently, but they don't make it anymore as far as I know...not to mention they're only a half hour.   

       The idea was basically for a fictional, longer, version of it.   

       @Alx_xlA: Yeah, basically. I think this'd end up more like a fictional documentary than a crime drama...   

       @bungston: Definitely need to keep the hotties :)

       Dang. I was hoping it would be an unsolved mysteries type show with request for viewer input. I'd bun that.
