i was watching FIVE US (a british tv station based on american shows). an interlude between shows was a man from london interviewing the creator of CSI miami. he sayed that London had a lot of potential for CSI (bearing in mind CSI uses the same cities as the 3 newest GTAs). he sayed the london eye was an interesting narrative tool and the fact that it centred around a river, he also found interesting.
im not a London fanboy but i seen this today and i thought about it. thats when i also made the connection between CSI and the 3 newest GTAs sharing the same cities.
