CSI: Miami: The Number One Show In The World

David Caruso is beaming, of course. But previous shows beloved by foreign audiences have included Baywatch and, inexplicably, Hunter.

I think it's mostly due to the fact that foreign audiences enjoy a character not used to his full potential on the American show. For foreign markets, David Caruso's sunglasses are a magical, sentient being which speaks to him in a funny high-pitched Mexican accent, a little like Speedy Gonzales,always making silly wisecracks but occasionally helping solve a case. David Caruso is dubbed to have funny arguments with the sunglasses -- called "Poquito" -- and he takes them off whenever "Poquito" annoys him too much.

Episodes usually conclude with Caruso and Poquito debating life lessons that have been learned on the week's show. For example-- from a German-dubbed telecast from last month:

CARUSO: It just doesn't make sense... A father killing his own son out of jealousy.

POQUITO: Ayyyyyy... Dios Mio, life is loooo-co!

CARUSO: You can say that again, Poquito.

POQUITO: Si, I will. Dios Mio, life is looo-co!

CARUSO: Poquito, you're crazy, but you're my only friend.

(he takes off his sunglasses and puts them into his breast pocket, then pats them in a loving way as they walk down the beach)

POQUITO (voice muffled): Do you think, Senor, one day we will have a world without violence?

CARUSO: I hope so, Poquito. I hope so.

POQUITO: Mucho bueno! And now I am hungry. Let's get enciiiiii-ladas!

CARUSO (chuckles): Do you ever think about anything besides food?

POQUITO: But of course! I also think about tequiiiii-la!!!

CARUSO (puts sunglasses back on): Poquito, you incorrigible scamp. What would I do without you?

So, as you can see, it's a whole different sort of show.

Thanks to The Shadow.
