CBS (ended 2013)
Me too. I have a feeling for this episode. I really can't wait!
A delightful homage to the (pre-Ellery Queen) American Detective stories of the 1920s. Like them, it was silly, over-complicated, and had a lot of holes, but was so much fun that you don't mind this. (I could almost see the ghost of Craig Kennedy or Professor Augustus S. F. X. Van Dusen walking around the set and smiling.)
I hope the biggest hole is filled, because Sam Harding lived for another fifty years after this, surely this was not his only example of homicidal ingenuity. Somewhere, not necessarily in New York, there must be other examples of his 'skill.' (And, as my wife said, it is a shame that characters don't crossover from one Bruckheimer show to another, because it would have been wonderful to see Dr. Spencer Reid in that room.)
One of my favourite episodes. Really well done and keeps your attention throughout. I love Mac and Stella working as friends and co-workers together, although it would be nice to see Flack and Hawkes figuring things out too. Hawkes especially was low-key in this episode and his scenes were weirdly edited/quick. Flack not figuring out puzzles is less surprising
I also didn't care for Hayden. I'm hoping they decided to use that FBI woman to write her off the show, but she did seem suspicious too. I almost thought she was there for Adam. Anyway, we'll see if that comes up again later. It reminds of Lauren Lee Smith's stint as Riley on the original "CSI". I love her as an actress but they didn't think she meshed well with the rest of the cast (not just her, but also the character I guess) so they wrote her off in a semi-weird way where her reason for leaving had to do with Catherine's lack of leadership. And that led to Sara saying one of my favourite lines of that show, "Grissom had something that you don't have, Catherine. You." Anyway, I digress.
I'm still waiting for them to reference Stella and Adam's relationship over the summer. I know they're ignoring it for now (or maybe even forever), but I didn't mind them together. At least mention it to keep some continuity.
|Haley, had to literally bribe Mac to hire her and NOW the FBI wants to suddenly hire her?|
|So the banners TaZ made did work|
|Adam actually having applied to join FBI??? Nooooooooo, he cant leave us!!!!|
|I think it was Danny, but Adam crushing on Haylen and that is why he is upset? Hellooooooo, bad CSI... bad, bad CSI. Adam has a crush on Stella.|
|Odd question, but Flack (Eddie's) hair doesnt seem to have as much grey in it. Or was I imagining that?|
|And OMG, did anyone else freak, even for a second when Hawkes got trapped.|
