CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

CSI on CBS returned Wednesday night for their 12th season premiere and the gang is back in action.  But there will be a few changes coming up this season.

In this new season of CSI, we have the cast addition of Ted Danson showing up in the season premiere.in his new role of   I’ve really enjoyed Ted Danson when he was on Damages and I’m looking forward to his stint on CSI.  On TV, he was last seen on Bored to Death.

So far he’s brought a certain quirkiness to the role in the first episode.  Taking a call from his wife in the middle of a crime scene to laying down in the middle of the crime scene to see what the dead man might have seen last.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Nothing can define a great series like a great opponent of one of the primary characters.  And so it is with CSI characters Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne) and Nate Haskell (Bill Irwin).  Langston’s only real weakness is his nemesis, Nate Haskell.  He’s already taken a piece of him last season, and now Haskell has taken a piece of his, well, you’ll see.

The one thing that surprised me in these last three CSI episodes was with the focus on Langston and Haskell, we did not get a lot of story on Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger).  I only say that because this was her last season on the show.  Unless something has changed… though I haven’t heard anything.  Have you?  Though I can’t imagine leaving a cush job after 11 years/seasons.

This was an energetic three episodes seeing Langston so focused, upset and off-balance.  Bill Irwin brought Nate Haskell to an entire new level of demented and he made it real easy to hate the character and his crazy collection of “Haskell Wives.”

Spoilers ensue if you’re a DVR addict like we are here at Cinema Static:
