David Caruso as Horatio Caine in CSI Miami

I watch all three of the CSI shows, but I find the most ANNOYING thing about CSI Miami is David Caruso. I don't know if it's the character or his acting but that sanctimonious smirk and that save the world martyr act drives me CRAZY!!!

The weird thing is that as many people who hate him also seem to love him, including Paul's (cydewaze's) mother who thinks he makes the show, and is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Another person on a forum said that he is nothing short of a "holy man"!

So.....if you watch the show, what do YOU think of him?

HATE.

First of all, it's by far the worst CSI of the franchise.

Second, his smirking is grating on my last nerve.

UGH! He's a sanctimonious bastard. It's a caricature of the other CSIs.

David Caruso is a shitty actor and he was one back on NYPD Blue as well. He always looks like he's acting, and it really takes you out of the scene. CSI Miami would probably suck without him in it, but he only makes it worse.

Or maybe I'm bitter because Emily Procter was so fabulous on The West Wing when it was still good, and then she left for this trainwreck.

I don't like the guy either.

He gets on my nerves and comes across as being a real jerk, at least to me.

Somehow, i love him...even though all he does is stand around with his head cocked to the side, looking up slightly, with sunglasses in hand....he's not really a character--more like a prop.

I adored Caruso on NYPD Blue.

I don't blame him for the shittiness of CSI:Miami. He isn't in control of the production. I blame the shitty scripwriters and directors who allow him to continue in this manner as Horatio and the way he is allowed to deliver lines.

Ainsley Hayes

What a great character she was. Why she was never made a regular on The West Wing is beyond me.

And I don't watch CSI: Miami, but I've never cared for David Caruso.

Keep him. If nothing else, purely for the fact that after the show I can annoy my wife by talking like him for the next two hours.

I love Horatio. I can't speak for any of David Caruso's past projects, having never seen him in anything else.
I like all of the CSI shows, but i've only discovered them in recent months. I suspect the criticism shall start surfacing shortly.
