    CSI Ted Danson’s arrival gives CSI an immediate, much-needed energy boost. He’s D.B. Russell, the crew’s new, and new-to-Vegas, boss; D.B. is as exuberant (and mysterious) as Laurence Fishburne’s Ray was phlegmatic (and obvious). Danson’s first episode sets up excellent tension with Catherine, ramping up for, alas, Marg Helgenberger’s departure later in the season. (Marg, don’t you wanna stick around now that Danson is providing so much fun?) As for tonight’s case, it includes a cameo by Carrot Top and human/octopus sex. Someone at CBS needs to send Rick Santorum a copy to drum up some controversy! B+ —Ken TuckerHelgenberger’s exit begins- to be replaced by Elisabeth Shue CSI: Shue debut 2-15-12

    CSI 300th episode 10-23-13

    The “Unforgettable” pilot had its moments but I wasnt that impressed. It was barely above average due to Montgomery’s acting…if the show improved and they gave her a really gut wrenching episode about her sister’s murder I could see her getting an Emmy nomination.

     

    HOWEVER, the show has a long way to go before that. I wanted to like it, I REALLY did, but the case this week was as generic as they come.

    Unforgettable was best for Montgomery. When she discovers who that man was where you couldn’t see his face – That could be what would make an Emmy submission. It’s probably going to happen this season. Or it should.

     

    Criminal Minds- Prentiss returns!

     

    CSI- The Langston reign of terror is over! Time for Ted Danson as DB.

    The second episode was a big improvement over the first in all aspects, especially the production values. I don’t know what was going on in the pilot but there were some weird editing decisions.

    Overall, the case this week incorporated all of the characters better and the writing was less forced. Again, Montgomery is putting everything she has into this role, hopefully the show will go places outside of the standard procedural that put her acting chops to better use.

    I thought Montgomery’s scene with the kid were better than her ones with the Alzheimers mother. If you are looking for actor emmy bait alzheimers mother -like the alzheimers father for JAck on without a trace – can lead to over the top horrible acting from all all involved. So I just hope they keep it all restrained and subtle if they are looking for real emmy bait.

     

    CSI was very good. All the people confessing was well done.

    I found Ted Danson, despite my initial doubts, to be an immediately welcome addition to the team. It was quite refreshing to have an outgoing, well-adjusted supervisor. I’m still hoping that by some miracle Helgenberger will decide to stay on. Eads is picking up slack well–he’s a much better actor than he gets credit for.

     

    I loved the erotic octopus stuff. Leave it to CSI: to find some pervy thing they haven’t done before.

    The second episode of CSI was even stronger than the first. It was a great case, and Danson continued his good vibes. I just dread Helgenberger leaving–but they are doing a nice subtle build of her growing dissatisfaction.

    A hotel maid is accused of murdering a guest who she claims tried to rape her. The investigation hits a snag when the video evidence conflicts with Carrie’s memory and threatens to derail the probe.

    A decent episode, got much stronger as the episode went on. The actress who played Maria Ortiz was dreadful though.

    Glad to see that it looks like Omar Metwally will be joining the cast. Hopefully they give him more to do.

    Danson is great- when they were all standing around the table and discussing the case I got a classic CSI feel. The show is much better now.

    “Bittersweet” was another in a great run of episodes for CSI  this year. The guy drowning in chocolate was a great subplot–macabre and funny all at the same time.

    On the subject of CBS shows, I’ve noticed that Hawaii Five-O has improved markedly this year. I credit Terry O’Quinn, who has finally brought out some life in Alex O’Loughlin in their scenes together.

     Terry O’Quinn has fit the show and his character very well but it has meant less Caan.

    Unforgettable used the skills of Carrie Wells the best on last nights episode. Having her go into the apartment and have a look around and the jail scene where you saw the guy from True Blood for like two seconds and then she remembers what he was saying. It was good. The opening scene with the guy hitting on her with “i never forget a face” LOL was good and the last scene of her walking home and you’re like “she will remember this forever!” All because she really wants to be with Al.

    “Maid Man” – The former Mayor of Las Vegas is shot at the Mob Museum and the CSIs embark on a history lesson in search of clues, on CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, Wednesday, Oct. 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Barbara Eve Harris (“Prison Break”) guest stars as Sheriff Sherry Linson. Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman guest stars as himself.

    Was a pretty good episode of “Unforgettable” last night. I’m glad to see we’re developing the supporting characters more, just so they’re not generic detectives who do the same thing week after week. Interested in seeing where they’re going with Carrie and the A.D.A. after that awkwardly tense scene the two shared.
