    Not working is it

    By MikeJackson, Mar 27, 2012

    Six months later than the States we Brits get the episode, so excuse the late review. But if the storylines are still strong the acting, especially of Jorja Fox, just is not up scratch. Ted Danson just isn't strong enough to carry the series without better support. The sooner the CSI team lose a coue of the team in a tragic case the better.

    Wow, if you though that 73 seconds and tell tale hearts were amazing episodes, you definitively have to see this one, this episode is another proof of how the show has grown up with its twelfth season. In this episode I loved the character development, especially in Sara and D.B Russell; the psychopath also was great, she did a very good job, maybe the only flaw in this episode was the b plot about the man who died in the chocolate pool but despite of that, this episode deserves being consider as one of the greatest things ever done by the show In my opinion the best part was at the ending where we find who is the true killer, if you have already seen the episode, you know what I mean.

    interesting story

    By greysncis2010, Nov 04, 2011

    Story line was good. The twist was sad but it was good. I didn't expect the ending at all - the victim to be the one killing and raping teen girls. I like the intensity coming from the CSIs when they make the case personal, it gives more meaning in what they do. I don't know if it reflects reality, though, but at least on television, it looks good. :-)

    Ted Danson is finally able to blend in with the group. I didn't like him at first but I am liking him more as he shows his softer side with the team. It's nice how he tries to reach out to the team and treat them more than just CSIs.moreless

    A fantastic episode letting Jorja Fox and Ted Danson shine.

    I am really liking the vibe around the lab--Danson's character brings something not seen before in the CSI-verse: a level headed father figure who tries to relate to his team. The ending scene, where he attempts to bond with Fox's Sidle was touching and funny, and a good demonstration of both's acting ability. Her roll of the eyes when he first asked her to sit down showed her "jaded-ness" and distrust (?)--she's been through everything with Gil, and then the shock of Dr. Langston's turn of events--should she invest in yet another male supervisor? I also appreciated Catherine's surprise advice to him on how to succeed--it showed the maturity of her character, where last week's episode showed her being worn down by office politics.

    I, too, miss Grissom, and I did like Langston's gravitas, but Russell's character seems to be bonding the team together again. And a shout out to his sticking up for his wife and his kids!moreless
