Surprised nobody has made a topic about last week's CSI episode with all of the Sideshow Performers.
I thought it was mostly pretty good.

Sorry Critter...but it was awful to me, with due respect. I tuned in to see George The Giant's brief shots and was dumbstruck by the awful writing and ludicrous character portrayals. Another black eye. Pathetic TV torture.

I don't think it was stupendously accurate overall, but for a tv show I thought they did okay. It was interesting how it started with the banner.

I will admit I really didn't like the caricature of Zodiac. Obnoxious.
Also didn't like when Nick said "oldest trick in the book" about the phone book tear. Okay, points for the pun, but not everybody who tears phone books cheats.
Just because it can be faked, doesn't mean it is.
But again, as just a tv show I thought it was pretty good.

I was amazed that they could write a story about sideshow freaks, and still make it boring. Tho, I did laugh at loud at the "barker" complaining that they had to do two shows a night, six days a week.
