Pins and needles . . . that’s what I’m sitting on. It’s that typical story of developing a life-long love and you’re pretty sure they are going to “pop the question” soon. But are they? Really?!? Could it happen? Could your wildest dreams come true?
I sure hope so. I’ve stuck with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for 15 good seasons now—not to mention all of CSI:NY and some of CSI:Miami. I’ve lived through countless cases of plot twist after plot twist and mystery after mystery. I’ve probably seen each episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation at least 3 times. My favorites include:
THE DEVIL AND D.B. RUSSELL
THE CSI EFFECT/THE TWIN PARADOX/THE GREATER GOOD
And don’t even get me started on CSI:NY! Okay, okay, so maybe do. My top 2 from that spin-off are:
CSI:NY lived a long and beautiful life. I have probably watched every episode in that series at least 4 times. I mean, c’mon . . . Messer and Flack are a dynamic (and forever attractive) crime-fighting duo!
In the Fall of 2014, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was moved to the “killer” spot—Sunday nights at 10/9p CT with a truncated season (only 18 instead of their usual 22). That kind of scheduling during football season is a sure sign that a network is trying to kill the series off quietly. While the executives are still pulling for a 16th season, the future of the series is still unsure.
Meanwhile, they are preparing to launch a new spin-off called CSI:CYBER starring Patricia Arquette, James Van Der Beek, and Shad “Bow Wow” Moss. I truly did enjoy the CSI/CSI:CYBER crossover (KITTY) but I’m just not sure I can get behind that cast and the overall concept of the show:
The FBI’s team of cyber crime investigators, headed by Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette), works to solve cases involving the dark-net. Avery, a Special Agent in Charge and esteemed cyber-psychologist is in charge of the Cyber Crime Division at Quantico, Virginia. The team she leads is tasked with solving Internet-related murders, cyber-theft, hacking, sex offenses, and blackmail.
I just can’t take Dawson . . . erm . . . James Van Der Beek seriously right now. I mean I may grow to like his character in time, but right now, I just can’t. To make matters even worse, actor George Eads who plays Nick Stokes is leaving after this current season is over. He’s got a new baby and wants to take time off to tend to his family, which is truly honorable . . . but I’m still really going to miss Nick on the show. His character had great arcs and his acting was top notch! Still, that just means that the original cast has only left behind a handful of members to guide this team from one crime to the next. Thankfully, my cutie boo Greg Sanders is still in-it-to-win-it!
I really hope they do continue CSI into another season. If not, I may just have to barricade myself in my room and indulge in EVEN MORE CSI binges . . . kind of like I did with LOST when it ended.
What about you—do you have any shows that would break your heart if they got cancelled? Any favorite characters you’ve had to sadly bid farewell to?
