OH GOD IT'S DELIBERATE

Excerpt from Eva LaRue interview, which I normally wouldn't have read except that it was titled "The Orange Show" which I found FAR too unintentionally hilarious to pass up:

On a more serious note, LaRue addressed something that the fans have noticed when watching Miami: the colors. "They actually have our wardrobe designer design each show around a certain color scheme," she explained. "So it could be an orange, yellow and blue show; it could be a purple, pink and white show. You never know." The scheme that is chosen is used for the entire cast, including the extras [But not David Caruso, of course.]. LaRue explained that viewers could see everyone wearing those colors if they looked in the background. For example, she said that the extras could be "wearing yellow and orange and maybe, like, this splash of blue or something." [--borrowed from CSI Files]

Ah hah hah hah...and here I thought it was just something they did subconsciously, and eventually someone would open wardrobe's eyes to what they were doing, which would be followed by embarassed looks and a hasty end to the madness.  Apparently not.  *clutches head*

God, this show doesn't have to revel in its reputation for cheesiness.  I am really beginning to miss Dark Miami from season 1.  At the very least, could we please transplant a person or two from the CSI: NY set to show them how to dress their people properly?

I agree with you. I'm not a huge Miami fan for other reasons but who does that to a show? I guess all of the CSI's have their quirks. And NY does know how to dress.

Ugh. Seriously. Like Yelina doing her PI work in 4 inch pumps and a red/cheetah print top? Comfortable or no, I thought the whole point of spying on someone was to do it unseen. *shrugs* And it's not just the clothes. It's the color scheme they've worked out for the show now that is totally like skittles on crack. At the beginning of the fourth season, they had all of these elements in place, and for a while it looked kind of cool. Clearly, the days of subtlety and taste are over. Heh.

Hm, I must have been so distracted by Yelina appearing at all that I didn't notice her clothes, but yuck.

And "Skittles on Crack" is my new favorite term for this show.

I know what you mean. I'm not a huge Miami fan, but I watch it when I get the chance. I have been noticing all the colors and such and really, it could be a lot better.
I don't know if you necessarily want someone from CSI: New York, though, because if you haven't noticed, they can be even worse at times. For instance, Mac, hasn't worn anything but blue in many many episodes. While Gary Sinise does look good in blue, he needs variety sometime, although in the finale he did end up in a black shirt.
But at least New York is better than Miami. 'Cause I mean, really? A color coded episode? I think they're trying to make it cheesier.

Ah, but at least his shirt CHANGES. Horatio wears the same shirt-and-suit combo in 90% of the episodes nowadays.

Yea, that is true. This is why I rarely watch Miami. Its far too cheesy sometimes. Or, well, most of the time.

...*sob*

See, this is why I've given up hope that Miami will ever get better for more than two episodes at a time - they think we like it when they pull crap like this. Um, no. Half the people watching this show are just clinging to the desperate hope that one day we'll get early season Miami back. I know I am.

Now, my mother, who lived in Miami for a while, tries to tell me that Miami actually *is* that saturated with orange and blue, and that people actually do dress in safety-orange suits to appear in court. I refuse to believe her, though, because sweet merciful Stacey London that place is nuclear. Horatio is my bastion of relative fashion sanity.

*fume*

That is my worst fear, and sadly, I'm beginning to think it's true.
