** NTSF:SD:SUV:: is basically a parody of all tech-driven cop shows ever, but has a special place in its heart for ''CSI: Miami''. Is it any surprise the intro features lead character and Horatio Caine expy Trent Hauser doing standard and Caine pulls in the space of a split second?

** [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/522607 Replaying :the game:]] parodies this at the end of Theatre/{{Hamlet}} :the game: with Horatio putting on new glasses ''[[HurricaneOfPuns over the previous ones]]''.

* ''AshesToAshes'' DCI Keats ''loves'' doing this with his glasses - mainly to look cool, but also to underscore how much more human he appears without the glasses.
