...they don't seem to be doing this anymore on CSI: Miami.
Instead, apparently searching for a more serious tone, they set people on fire at the beginning of the episode.
I'm serious. My sister mentioned that they'd started an episode by burning down a building with somebody in it, and then they cut to YEEEAAAAAAAHHH! without giving a one-liner. Then, in the most recent episode, they pulled somebody (who turned out to be a dead body) out of a burning house, and one of the main characters suffered from smoke inhalation.
Actually, it's a little disappointing; now, we'll never hear Caine say "I guess that guy... was on fire." Yeeeaaaahhh!
