Crime Scene Incompetence

In shows like CSIMonk, NCIS, Law & Order, Psych, Bones, etc., the cops/investigators always get the killer. This always bothers me, because no matter how perceptive someone is in real life, it's unlikely that they would always catch the person they were after. That's why there are so many unsolved crimes.

This is my proposal for a new crime show:
  • An investigator solves around half of the cases he is given. 
  • Most of the episodes are left unresolved. 
  • Perhaps at the end of each season he would get fired and relocate to a new precinct. 
  • That way, each series could have a new title [in the style of CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, CSI: Mobridge, SD].
  • This would most likely be a drama so you could feel his pain as his failure increases.

Though, now that I think about it... this show might just be CSI: Mr. Bean.
Blogging the depths of the abyss,


  1. CSI: Mr. Bean sounds funny for about 10 minutes. It could get a little gruesome when he stumbles over bodies into pools bodily fluids, though.


I like the way you think.
