CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

CSI is an innovative, new type of crime drama in which the characters use cutting-edge forensic tools to examine the evidence to solve the case. Rather than a 'whodunnit' cop show (investigating witnesses / suspects), CSI explores the 'howdunnit'. CSI has been the number one scripted series in the Nielsen ratings for three years running. This is the first of 3 CSI series. AKA: CSI Las Vegas

I like Grissom a LOT but I think some new blood (after the whole Grissom/Sidel thing) might just be a good thing. As we have seen in shows like L&O cast changes can often be a invigorating thing for a long time series.

We'll have to wait and see. I like Fishburn and am interested in what he'll bring to the mix.

No action in this forum in 3 years! Just wanted to weigh in: I'm a long-time fan of this series, but I'm seriously disappointed with the addition of Elisabeth Shue. Most of the reviews I've read about her work on this show were gushing with approval. I find her annoying to watch. She appears to be extremely nervous all the time, wringing her hands, twitching, etc. I don't think this is just acting; it appears that Shue is genuinely nervous about her role. Her nervousness is possibly the reason that her character does little but smirk, posture and overreact to everything.

I hope that she either figures out her role or is replaced soon.

I like the Addition of Ted Danson, and Elisabeth Shoe.
I also like the addition of Morgan.
But I do miss Grissom a little.

I used to be a religious CSI viewer. I stopped watching about a year after Grissom left. The show just didn't appeal to me as much as other shows anymore.
