incidental music spots of the day

A couple of Who songs on the opening credits to two of the CSI spin-offs: Won't Get Fooled Again on CSI: Miami and Baba O'Riley on CSI: New York on Five US. Both can be found on the essential Who album Who's Next from 1971.

I didn't watch much of CSI: New York, but I can say that CSI: Miami is undoubtedly one of the stupidest things I've ever seen on television. This is partly down to the absurd orange wash that is plastered over everything (especially the ludicrous bit at the end where they're all walking along the beach in silhouette), but it's mainly down to David Caruso. Maybe the orange filter is just put on to tone down the effect of his hair. Anyway, if you don't believe me, an amusing montage of ridiculousness has been compiled here.

You know, that sums it up better than I ever could. Though oddly it is still slightly less ridiculous than the real thing.
