Globetrotter floor signage Globetrotter floor signage

Globetrotter Cologne, Germany

Running on Windows (if it does „run“). Interesting concept: One machine producing one floor’s signage, which is then shown on all floors. Unfortunately, in this case this made for four blue screens.

CSI: NY jumped the shark

Samstag, Januar 9th, 2010

With Denny „Nolegs“ Messer, the barely walking-again lab tech, pursuing an „armed and dangerous“ criminal through New York’s sewer system — without any need ahead of the following SWAT team — for me, CSI: NY finally jumped the shark.

Don’t get me wrong, though. I understand the effort it takes for the series makers to keep in some action, and am ready to accept the concept of the „wider“ job description the characters have. Otherwise it would be plain boring, just like reality tends to be. But has every little bit of believability be sacreficed to gain some attention from otherwise unreachable target groups? Might well be, that neither new viewers are attracted, nor the total amount of devoted fans is increasing.

That was it for me. So long…
