CSI: Miami, Caruso Style

CSI: Miami is one of those formulaic TV shows of which there are far too many. What sets this one apart, however, are the quick one-liners delivered by the shows main character. They're pretty much awful, but they do provide some unintended entertainment value. This clip has my vote for the all-time worst so far:

I'm also not the only one who sees these comments as ridiculous; in fact, I don't know how one could actually take them seriously. Now, I give you this clip of Jim Carrey and his rendition of this "quality" programming.

i have always liked the david caruso one-liners, although i have never seen an entire episode of csi. i just watch until he puts on or takes off his sunglasses and says something funny. also, jim carrey has become very unfunny. i remember him being a good interview, but now he seems like he's trying too hard.

While the one-liners may have originally been intended to be taken seriously, they have taken on a life of their own, evolving into a comedic expression. We all wait and watch for them each new episode.
Caruso plays them to the hilt. He's laughing right along with the rest of us.
Caruso's Horatio Caine is one of the brightest spots in a usually barren tv lineup.
