Thinking about Switching Teams

I can't believe I am actually finding myself saying this but I think I am finally ready to make the defection from the top rated drama on television, CSI, over to the greener pastures of The Office.

Last season during the off weeks of Ugly Betty and CSI and during the summer, I was able to catch the show, and at was charming, but because I don't have DVR, and the larger Miniature Killer storyline Grissom and his Forensic Scooby Gang were chasing down was very compelling, I couldn't make the leap then.

However, without such a story arc and with news regarding some of the actors on CSI, well, perhaps it is time for me to finally make a change. I've found myself flipping over with greater regularity to the gang over at Dunder-Mifflin, and I don't think I am going to make it to the end of this season at CBS on Thursdays.

It isn't like I am really going to miss anything. I mean, next year the episodes I am missing are going to be on Spike TV and just about every other station that syndicates the show, so really, I have nothing to lose.

So while I may not be ready to leave Las Vegas just yet, I am packing my bags and I have an open ended Greyhound ticket to Scranton, Pennsylvania.

First of all, after reading the title of this post, I thought it was going a whole different way ;).

I think I would pick The Office as well. I mean, *I* watch them ALL but given a choice....you can always get CSI reruns, like you said.

I wanted a little mystery with the title... thought it would draw a few more people in.

The Office has been unbelievably funny so far this season. I didn't think that they'd be able to keep it going, but so far these have been big winners.

My attention span is much too short. I can't focus on those hour long drams like CSI.

I was watching deleted scene clips online off and on all day... I am almost converted.

I grew up on soap operas, so I am sort of inured to the excesses of the hour long drama.
