These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: CSI: Miami
Acceptable Targets: In one episode, gamers. An entire episode was dedicated to trying to catch a group of bank robbers/murderers who took the GTA expy they were playing far too seriously, but the episode was written like something Jack Thompson would come up with and failed to so much as whisper the fact that 99% of gamers know the difference between fantasy and reality.
Anvilicious: The beginning of 9x09 "Blood Sugar". Its images of workers hacking away at sugarcane, the lyrics of the background music, and even the title (riffing off the phenomenon of "blood diamonds"), appear to be trying to lay a guilt trip on the audience for...using sugar. No accident that the presumably rich people in the gazebo are white while almost everyone else is Hispanic, either. Would you like a little implied racism/reverse racism with your anvil?
Truth in Television, the vast majority of sugarcane workers are hispanic, and all of them are poor.
An example: Once the team determines that the crooks are basing their crimes on the plot of a video game, they obviously need to determine what happens next in the game's plot. They go to the developer (conveniently located in Miami) who refuses to tell them the game's plot, saying that they will "just have to play the game." Not only are his reasoning that an already-released game's plot is some sort of trade secret patently ridiculous, the writers have clearly never set foot in a video game store, where there is generally an entire wall of Official Strategy Guides proclaiming "All Secrets Revealed!" on the front covers. And apparently CSI Miami-verse has no such thing as online walkthroughs, story guides, or Wikipedia.
The utterly nonchalant music playing during the climax of "All In" that captures both the utter confusion of the bad guy as to what the hell just happened and how badly the team outclasses him in the end.
Season six finale: Horatio goes to an airport to send his ex-wife and son into hiding, gets shot in the stomach, appears to die on the shiniest tarmac in history. Wolfe gets text: "It's done". Might've been marginally believable if it weren't the motherfuckingGod ModeSue of the show! And there's the whole thing about the similar moment on CSI:Vegas that was forced to stick by extenuating circumstances. Sure enough, season seven reveals Horatio to have faked his death, Wolfe to be in on it, and it all to be part of a gambit to lure Ron Saris out of hiding...in the space between the first and second commercial breaks.
Season nine finale: Horatio appears to get shot in the head, Natalia gets locked in a car trunk and pushed into the harbor. Season ten premiere: Horatio jumps into the harbor out of nowhere, gets Natalia out of the trunk, incapacitates bad guy...in the space of The Teaser. Again, no one will EVER believe you to have killed a Black Hole Sue on the order of Horatio. They don't even try to Hand Wave the headshot...
