  • A woman is found dead in her apartment but the doors and windows are all locked. The CSI team have to work out how the murder got in and out of her apartment.

    This episode is very well written as surprises you thought out the entire episode. From the being when Nick gets an e-mail and it is like the murder you being to wonder what is going to happen and if he is connected to the murders at all.

    There are many twists during the episode and you have to watch carefully and you will be able to see the bad guy popping up during the entire episode.

    This episode many revolves around Nicks character and you get to see all different sides of him, as well as the place that he lives in.
  • The case of Jane Galloway- a homicide case just like any other turns out to be more significant for a member of the team than first expected.

    It's great to watch an episode like this one. After watching Season 2 on dvd, I became aware that it was getting harder and harder for me to be shocked by what I was seeing. Not that seeing blood and corpses isn't disturbing, but there hadn't been any significant episodes so far in season 2 that had really kept me on the edge of my seat. This episode certainly changed that. The opening sequence was chilling, with Jane hiding in her wardrobe with her dog. Three locks on the door, windows that had been nailed shut and other measures weren't enough to keep the killer out. The killer, a disturbed psychotic loner, none other than the 'cable guy.'

    But what I really liked about the episode was that it really let us get to know Nick a little better. The CSIs have their 'characters.' Grissom is the leader, Warrick is the former gambling addict, Sara is the tough one with the soft centre and Catherine is the single mom, but only once in a while do we really see the 'people'. It would be good to have more episodes like this. The show itself is great, interesting and entertaining, and the characters are ace. Its nice that every once in a while we see more of the personal sides of the characters.
  • Why?

    Why does everything bad happen to Nick? he gets stalked and then he almost get eaten alive by fire ants. Hes had a fun career. I know Nicky is cool and al, but come on, give they guy a break..... jeez.... so.. to fill up the rest of these hundred words... im gonna ask the writers a question... Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!? Why?!?

  • Recycled plot from the Cable Guy

    While the overall tone of the episode was interesting, the nutty cable guy who would spy on people from their attics and insinuate themselves into someone\'s life has been done to death. Why not make it a plumber or a Telephone repairman at least, eh?

    And why Nick, of all people. I can see why he\'d go after the girl, but Nick? That\'s just a little too weird for this viewer. Nice try, guys, but you can do better than this...
  • After a woman is killed inside her outside world insulated home, the team must determine how the killer got in and out, and they soon realize that Nick is the next target.

    This episode had me at the edge of my seat. A stalker called Jane from inside her house, she hides in the closet, and you see him come down from the ceiling and attack her. Then Nick is half-dead in the hospital, Nigel kills the psychic, throws him through the ceiling, jumps down, tries to commit suicide, then the police break in. Although he was sentenced to life, I don't think we've seen the last of Nigel Crane.
  • Jane Galloway gets murdered in her overly protected home. The CSI team must then figure out how the killer got into the house.

    Stalker is a very exciting episode. It opens up with Jane Galloway being murdered in her own home. The events that occur throughout the rest of the show are even more interesting than the opening. When the team finally realizes who the killer is, they must find out where he is hiding and who he is after next. The cast does a wonderful job working together in this episode. George Eads is an excellent actor, and he really shows it. His concerns throughout the episode appear to be real. Stalker is one episode that can keep a viewer interested throughout the whole episode.
  • *warning spoilers* Jane Galloway is brutily murdered in Her locked home By stalker Nigel Crane

    This is one of my favourite episode because: i watch mainly horror films and telivision programs and this particular episode made me jump so many times. i find the most important part is where nick gets thrown out of nigels window. have you noticed everything happens to nick. he gets guns in his face 5-6 times he gets buried underground, nearly eaten alive by fire ants nearly crushed in his own home by a falling dead body. um and he gets thrown out of a window. i'm guessing there is much much more. anyway this episode is special. i love it sooo much

  • A thrilling and fascinating episode.

    This is one of those episodes where they just have to traumatize a character. This time it was Nick. All in all this was a marvelous episode. It kind of leads you around a bit and keeps you guessing as to why this is happening. Eventually it's easy to see that it has something to do with Nick, but you just can't place what. Very well written and absolutely brilliant. This is why I watch this series. For episodes like this that are right up there with a series finale in terms of excellence and plot. Plus you get to learn a little more about Nick and there's some character development. Wonderful episode.
  • Oh. My. God. Seriously creepy.

    This was the first ever episode of CSI I watched. The impact was huge. It got me completely hooked. I still get shivers whenever I think about "Stalker".

    The first thing I remembered about this episode was when Nigel was up in the girl's attic and her called her and said "Didn't I tell you to stop biting your fingernails?" Can I just say that I always used to bite my nails. After this episode I pretty much never bit them again.

    I swear. Everyone delivers such a great performance in this ep. Especially Doug Hutchinson. I don't think I've seen a guest star that created such an impact.

    Perfect, thrilling episode. 10/10
  • Leave the lights on for this one. Trust me, your going to need them.

    Good Lord. I will admit I'm not great with scary stuff, but even my dad was freaked out watching this!
    I was fine until the scene where Nick is looking through the stuff under Nigels sink- and you see a pair of legs appearing from out of the ceiling!!I nearly fell off my sofa!! And the part where the psychic says that the little dog didn't make it-what kind of twisted sicko kills a sweet little dog!!
    I gotta say, Nick really has gone up in my estimations- his job has gotten him stalked, kidnapped and buried alive and he hasn't even quit yet!! Fair play to him, cause I would have quit the second the guy through me out the window!! Excellent episode, one of the scariest CSI has ever done.
  • This episode scared the be-jesus out of me.

    This episode scared the be-jesus out of me. Genuinely thrilling, with an interesting villain who develops through the episode from an innocent, if slightly odd, cable guy, to a stalker, and eventually a killer. Right from the opening sequence I was on edge, a stalker breaches the sanctuary of a young woman, and spies on her from her own attic. She runs to hide in her cupboard, her yapping dog barking at her side, only to be grabbed from behind out of the darkness by an unseen villain. Awesome.

    We also get a glimpse of Nick Stokes life outside of work as a luna cable loving sports fan, and a dedicated crimestopper. This episode also introduces a selfless psychihc, who 'helps' the investigation, but ultimately puts himself in peril when trying to warn Nick.

    Overall this was a very original episode, well acted and thrillingly directed. 10 on 10.
  • Oh my freaking God!!

    This was a a really intense episode!
    When the team finds a woman dead it turns out she was being stalked and one of the team is in danger as well.
    This kept me on the edge of my seat the intire hour.
    George Eads really brought out Nicks emotion in this episodes and it shows us how a small thing can affect your life.
  • Kept me biting my nails the whole hour!

    I liked much this episode. One of my favorites. Everything starts with the short article about Nick being the "Crime Stopper", in which mentions Nick builds toys in his free hours. Of course, as Sara makes it to appear, no one knew about this. Here is where you get the idea, (other than the episode's name), that Nick is being stalked. When they finnaly disvover this, is when they reach Nigel Crane's house, in which they discover that he lives in his attic. Grissom takes some video tapes to the lab, and while Archie is analyzing them, Catherine notes a boared in the backgound. After enhancing the picture, we see the article about Nick. It was now just a matter of time for Brass to come, and arrest Nigel Crane at Nick's appartment.
  • A woman is killed in her apartment by a stalker who had an interesting way of getting close to his victim.

    Fantastic. This is one of the first episodes I ever saw of CSI. It's such a great reason why I watch the show. It had lots of suspense without it being predictable. I enjoy the show when it involves the CSI field investigators into the storyline. I'm now watching the show from the beginning and this episode is where I am currently at. This episode and the episode "The Finger" have been my favorites so far. As I said before, this episode isn't as predictable as some of the CSI episodes prior. And last but not least, I heart Greg. :)
  • This is a fine example of great Direction and writting

    So, this is my first review of CSI Las Vegas. I loved this episode specially because of the keen details one often overlooks. The choice of music and sound was perfect, theis episode even has perfect thriller meterial in it with lots of suspense. It kept me on the enge numerous times and I gotta say it's all because of a great direction. The only flaw that I see is that the story of the phsychic was left in thin air. Did he die when Crane threw him out? He was a key element in the whole episode and I think is not fair to just leave him out like that.
  • This episode is crazy!

    Ok this episode starts with a girl who is scared to death because someone is stalking her. Then you figure out that she was posed because the guy wanted to be like nick. I liked the crime stopper artical and how they had it all plotted out so Nick would be freaking out when he saw the e-mail with his prom date. The clarivoint guy was just brilliant that just added a whole nother level of weird to the episode. The ending i didnt like so much with him getting caught and brought into police custody and arrested i would have rather him got away and been in a few more episodes.
  • A young women is being stalked but it eveantually turns out that they have a CSI in mind.

    This i belive is one of the best episodes of CSI ever it has great acting, fantastic story and also can be considored creepy but overall it is just wow. I have watched this episode at least 2 times during the past fortnight and each time i still feel the same shiver and excitment while watching it. Also the acting portraid by George Eads is just amazing and also the acting who plays the stalker he just fits the bill perfectly knowing all about Nick and about his life and acts in everyway a good CSI preprator should. Overall this episode is a must watch you won't regret it.
  • Nick has a stalker

    In one of the best episodes of the season Nick gets a stalker but is starts off with a women getting stalked and killed and the CSI's find out he was hiding in the loft and the only way he got in is if the women let him in.Later they find another victim is Nick and the CSI's have to get back to his house before the Stalker decides to kill him.I rated this a 10 with Identity Crisis because they are both perfect episodes but couldn't decide which one is better.
