Really like Ted Danson and his character. Never though Fishburne and his character worked that well. He will not be missed by me.
post #784 of 1041
There's always someone. In this instance it's me. I thought Ted Danson was a buffoon. Do not like the character at all. Makes me miss the Fishperson.

I do think they've done a decent continuity plot job with Catherine demoted, a new supervisor, new CSI from the rogue LA fiasco etc.

I liked it with Ted, skipped out after Grissom left, may tune in now and again with Ted on board..

Story plot:

Nick and Langston went to LA chasing Nate Haskell at the end of last season and both went rogue out there. Catherine, being the immediate supervisor caught the grief and was demoted. This allows Danson to be introduced into the cast correcting the producers error of not making Langston a supervisor. While in LA, we met CSI Morgan Brody, who is Ecklie's daughter. She helped out Nick and Langston in the LA episodes and caught hell from the LA locals for it so it would appear she got canned and is now in Vegas trying to get Daddy to get her a job and because Nick went rogue, Ecklie is trying to get rid of Nick, hence the Russell comment to Ecklie that he would hate to lose Nick, presumed to be replaced by Brody. But in reality, and what hasn't been broadcast yet, Nick stays and Brody is added in some capacity.

Now you are up to date.


I agree with all this. The past is correct. Katherine got demoted for "letting the dogs run" and Haskell gets dead. It is well know that Marge Helgenberger (katherine) is leaving this year. So... DB gets hired as CSI supervisor (new blood, fresh ideas), Marge demoted, gets disgruntled and leaves in Jan/Feb. (as widely reported). Nick is asst/night supervisor, Brody hired to replace Marges's "slot". Sara Sidle goes full time this year as well, basically replacing Hodge's love interest in Wendy Simms, the lab rat .

touching episode telling about where the cast was on 9/11/01. Heard Gary Senise on the radio this week talking about how the episode would feature the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance. Gary was a big part of the walls building since more than 1/3 of the firemen were from that borough. Evey NY'er including myself knows where they were on that date..Nice job Gary!!

Yes, she was one of Charlie's "scores".

I really liked last night's episode. Some good story arcs developing that might just breathe some fresh air into the show.
post #792 of 1041
I really like Ted Danson's character this season, he's a fresh of breath air for being a regular guy, nice contrast to Grissom and Ray Langston. Catherine was barely in the episode so it looks like they are really phasing her out quickly before she finally leaves

how is the show's ratings since moving to Wednesday night after 3 weeks worth ?
post #793 of 1041
I wasn't sure about his character after the first ep, but now I'm convinced - Danson is great on this show.
post #794 of 1041
Ted is a love/hate for many of us. He will always be Sam Malone. Danson may pick up some curious viewers, but after many seasons, they have lost our family.
post #795 of 1041
I just got caught up on CSI. I had my doubts about Danson when I heard he was joining the cast, but he is a welcome change from Fishburne. Fishburne is a great actor and his character was interesting, but the show lost its underlying current of dark humor that it had with William Peterson. Too many episodes revolved around the Langston character at the expense of the others.
I've only seen Danson in Cheers and the Three Men and a Baby movies. Never watched him in Becker. His character is no Grissom, but he does lighten the tone a little. I hope he butts heads a little with Eckley.
I wonder if they will explain why Sarah is back. She has not mentioned Grissom at all. Are they still together?

Really going to miss Marg Helgenberger if she goes.

They are still together and Grissom made a cameo in one episode. He was mentioned frequently last season, not once this season. It sure makes for an odd storytelling scenario with Sarah being back full time.

I liked the "A" story at the Mob Museum. The "B" story was a bit predictable. Danson's character seems to fit in with the rest of them. Hope they keep the quality up.
post #798 of 1041
Danson's character is growing on me...I'll say that.
post #799 of 1041
I like the former mayor playing himself.. He has been in a few episodes of CSI..Good episode overall.

I really enjoyed this week's episode. The special effects were pretty bad and the timeline was a little off, but the story itself was really good.

The CGI of the helicopter in flight was awful. In one transition the pilot looked like a static image and then "came to life" when they transitioned to the actual live actor, it was terrible.

What? You thought the CSI team got to the ghost town a little too quickly? I liked the ep pretty well too. Ecklie's character sure has morphed over the years.

Overall I thought this week's show was really good, perhaps a bit too melodramatic, but then again I still don't like Eckley. Probably never will. I agree some of the CGI was pretty bad. Danson again was excellent. So was Eric Szmanda. Hopefully the show will have a comeback in the ratings.
post #804 of 1041
I agree, i also enjoyed this weeks episode however i honestly though that this could be made into a much better episode in terms of its ending, i thought it was a bit too abrupt, good build up, good plot.
Maybe Brodie could have been kidknapped by the gang, etc and move on from there splitting over a couple of episodes..
The CGI was poor and there is no denying that but this didnt deter me from the show in any way.

Looking forward to next week.

Elisabeth Shue to replace Marg Helgenberger on "CSI"By Brent Lang

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - In a long and varied film and television career, Elisabeth Shue has played a stripper with a heart of gold, a babysitter lost in the big city and Marty McFly's love interest.

But she's never nailed a serial killer using DNA evidence while The Who blared on the soundtrack -- until now.

Cue up "Who Are You," the Oscar nominee is joining the cast of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," CBS announced Friday.

The "Leaving Las Vegas" star replaces Marg Helgenberger, who is exiting the show after playing a blood splatter analyst for 12 seasons.

Shue will first appear on the series on February 15.

Some additional info:

Quote:
Shue will play the newest CSI, fresh off an anger management course, amid rumors that D.B. Russell (Danson) fired her when she worked for him in Seattle. She will succeed Marg Helgenberger, who is departing her full-time gig on CSI in January but is expected to return for occasional guest sports, reprising her role as Catherine Willows.



http://www.deadline.com/2011/11/csis...on-cbs-series/


When they showed the recent scene of Catherine being offered the new gig I felt a twinge of nostalgia knowing she was on the way out, but I suspect Ms Shue will fill in quite nicely.

I'll miss Marg although she wasn't the looker she was 12 or even 5 years ago.
Actually I haven't watched a one CSI this year LV or NY, but my Tivo is watching them all......at this rate it will be the summer doldrums before I get a chance to clear out my CSI folders

I can appreciate those that like Ted Danson, however I certainly think he's a distraction for me. I will say he's growing on me, but comparing his ability, up against Fishburne's, no comparism,...Fishburne hands down. I fully realize the cast changes are inevitable, however, the Vegas crew's dilution, and just overall trending in the wrong direction. We're finding ourselves drawn toward the Miami crew much more-so than ever,..kinda filling the "strong" character gap that I feel the Vegas group is lacking.

We don't lose any sleep over it, as we've got way too much material on the DVR as is. But no question; in our opinion, Danson was a step in the wrong direction for the show. It's actually a relief,...as shows deteriorate in their appeal, we're less compelled to catch them,...and that's a good thing.


Thanks

If you're thinking of Caruso when you refer to a strong character I'm just the opposite. I tried to watch Miami for about half it's first season but I just couldn't get into it. To me, Caruso's character was so over the top that the role appeared to be aiming for a caricature of the prototypical hard ass buffoon. Maybe it's changed since but I checked in periodically over the first couple seasons and if anything it was even worse. Actually the whole show seemed to be done in the same mode, from the hugely over saturated colors to the even more "out there" technological stretches than Vegas has. And I actually really liked Caruso in his single season on NYPD Blue way back when too... Different strokes
