CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION - Marg Helgenberger, Laurence Fishburne

I just got through the first two episodes of the new season of CSI.

I’m not going to make this a recap of an episode.  I presume you’ve seen it already and there’s no reason for me to go on and on about the semantics.

Instead, let me address what captured my attention.

I loved the opening of the season opener.  It was a massive Matrix like freeze frame all over the entire universe of CSI (Vegas).  It was funny seeing Laurence Fishburne in a Matrix looking freeze frame.  (Flashback!)

It was awesome to see Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) again!  Woo!  But we’re only going to have her around for a few episodes… at least as far as I can tell.  Unless the fans start a massive campaign to keep her on board.

I enjoyed seeing Dr. Raymond Langston (Laurence Fishburne) making CSI grade 2.  He’s coming into his own.  In the 2nd episode of the 10th season, we FINALLY start to deal with the character flaw that was pitched last year but never really touched on:  His genetic associations with serial killers.  That’s all they pitched about him before last season, but we never really saw it addressed.  Now we learn about his father and his pre-disposition.

With Grissom out of the way, it almost seems like Fishburne is stepping up and I almost felt like he took the lead, or at least commanded it with me.

It was also awesome to see Nick Stokes (George Eads) catch his promotion to the supervisor spot on graveyard.  What’s up with the spiders?  Did I miss something?  Has he always had a spider thing, or is he taking care of Grissom left overs?  Are we getting a new bug-man, taking the place of Grissom, who was also quite the bug-man?

The first two cases were pretty awesome with some nice twists and turns.  It was also another great guest role played by Garrett Dillahunt.  (The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Cromartie)

CSI is off to a great start this year!
