  • After A Young Woman Is Killed By A Shark In A Casino "Day Club", The CSIs Must Determine If The Death Was An Accident Or Murder.

    I have mixed feelings about "Pool Shark". I agree with the other user that this episode it made feel like the old CSI has come back. And this particular episode does not have a very strong case but why the episode deserves such a high score is because of Wendy's and Hodges' personal story line. I liked their chemistry in the show but I was disappointed to see that they never did anything "serious". The most powerful scene without doubt is when Henry and Hodges argue in the pool. I absolutely loved seeing Elliott Gould as a guest star because I am a huge fan of Friends. Overall, "Pool Shark" may not live up to your expectations but it sure is very entertaining. Good episode!moreless
  • 11x02 !SPOILERS!

    this episode was good but not exelent, at the begining I was very interested by the idea of a shark attack but after I saw it, I was a little disappointed by knowing the true meaning of that shark attack.

    Something I like of this episode is that everybody had enough screen time. Even the recurring roles like henry had great momments in this one but what I didn´t like was the ending of the episode where we see a very polite Earnest Boozell after seeing him being annoying during the entire chapter, it was like trying to fix something but for me it didn´t work P.D: I´m from venezuela, I´m not an expert writing in english, please forgive my mistakesmoreless
  • The old CSI has come back!

    So far in this season, I found traces of the old CSI... team work, friendship and Les Vegas. This episode is packed with wits and passions. Got screening time of almost every member of the team, unlike those in last 2 seasons where screens were always filled up with CG effects and actors were like "supporting actors".

    Actors in the show got more lines, their emotions have been expressed and are willing to deal with their vulnerability. I think it's a brilliant idea to impair Dr. Ray's character a little bit by losing one of his kidneys. Right now, Ray and Doc have become great partners in the lab.

    Welcome back, Mr Anthony Zuiker. Thanks for bringing the show back.moreless
