Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

CSI: Miami's producers have finally realized who the true star of the show is: Horatio Caine's sunglasses. In a perfect world, the sunglasses would talk (preferably voiced by Mo'Nique or Emo Philips), helping Horatio solve his cases, but they're doing the next best thing in the show's eighth season premiere: giving the sunglasses a backstory.

Actually, it's a backstory of how the team originally met, but does anyone really care about the emotional origins of these characters? No, we just want to know how Horatio gets his sunglasses, and it's (*spoiler alert*) partially revealed in the preview above. Poor Horatio was "standing out there in the Everglades, kind of shading my eyes because I don't wear sunglasses," when some other team member who's name I don't know because I don't actually watch this show presents him with a pair of polarized (fancy) shades.

The show will premiere Monday, September 21, on CBS. Of course, if you're not a fan, network TV offers you lots of other options Monday nights at 10, such as, um, Jay Leno's ego and Castle, which has nothing to do with an actual castle.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
