Let's Not Seek

The writer's blog for last night's CSI: Miami says of the final scene:

"Horatio and Alexx quietly close the drawers on our last two victims in the morgue. The moment hauntingly underscores the tragic journey of the episode."

It certainly would have, if it had actually been quiet.

Instead the show became the 147th series to use Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" as a mood-killer.

This bleating, screeching car wreck is only good for boosting Excedrin sales and scaring mice out of the walls. Can we please call a moratorium on its intrusion into our TV shows? Please?

And I'm willing to admit that musical taste is an individual thing, and maybe everyone loves this song but me... but even so, the fact that it's been done to death should be grounds enough to put this song in a barrel and sink the barrel at sea.
