The big topic of conversation among TV fanatics this past week? The overall lousiness of the network's new fall shows. After a summer filled with UnREAL, Mr. Robot, Show Me a Hero, and The Carmichael Show — not to mention the soon-departing Fear the Walking Dead, which aired its best episode yet — it was damned dispiriting to have to slog through the likes of Life in Pieces, Blindspot, and Rosewood. Where's the panache? Where are the series with something to say?

The flower did it.
Ok, not exactly, but with William Petersen’s Gil Grissom back on the case, you knew there was going to be some obscure botanical reference — plus crazy twists like bees used as tracking devices (!) and some Lady Heather safe-word mumbo jumbo — in the pursuit of a dastardly bomber.

Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) is returning to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for one last hurrah. The long-running CBS procedural calls it quits after 15 seasons with a two-hour series finale on Sept. 27. The series capper sees Grissom (William Petersen) and Willows reconnecting with the CSI team in Las Vegas to help solve a pivotal case that is threatening the entire city. Helgenberger spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about why she didn't miss her character after she left CSI, the surprising scene in the finale that kept causing her to well up with tears and whether the show should

Earlier this week, IndieWire's Sam Adams interviewed me, Mo Ryan, and Tim Goodman about the increasingly strange and outdated practice of reviewing new shows based just on the pilot episode. At one point, Sam asked what was the wrongest I ever was about a show's quality based on the pilot episode. I didn't have a great answer for that one, since I have a pretty good Spidey sense about when pilots aren't to be trusted (case in point: "Studio 60"), but I did think of an answer to a related question: What show was I most wrong in predicting its commercial success based on the pilot? The answer to that one's easy, and timely, because the show in question is airing a series finale special Sunday night at 9: "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." It's not that I was predicting its outright failure or anything. I actually found the pilot interesting »

In a new teaser for the two-hour “CSI” series finale, we get our first look at the explosive conclusion of the popular CBS series. In the finale, a bomber is plaguing Las Vegas, which forces former CSIs Gil Grissom (William Petersen), Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) and Det. Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) to return to Las Vegas to assist the team in solving the case. Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke), Grissom’s longtime acquaintance, becomes the prime suspect. “CSI” first debuted on CBS in 2000 and became a ratings powerhouse. By its second season, it was among the top-rated shows on television. See photos: 'CSI' Series. »

Brush up on your forensic jargon and crank the volume on The Who, because it’s nearly time to say goodbye to CSI.

I woke up at 4:39 this morning, thinking of Hannibal, the man, the series, and the serial killer, awash in blood and viscera. Through three seasons of Hannibal, Mads Mikkelsen has redefined the character created by novelist Thomas Harris. The serial killer made an impressive debut in Red Dragon, first published in 1981. He was a cold-blooded homicidal maniac who gave FBI profiler Will Graham nightmares, in part because Hannibal tried to kill him, savagely. As downplayed by Brian Cox in Michael Mann's version, Manhunter (1986), he's chiefly memorable for the reaction he provokes in Graham (William L. Petersen), prompting him to race out of the prison where he's just interviewed him. Later, in Harris' The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal becomes a much more...

As Hannibal closes out its run on NBC tomorrow night, it also puts the six-episode Red Dragon arc to rest. The story line comes from Thomas Harris's novel Red Dragon, where FBI agent Will Graham tries to catch the serial killer by enlisting the help of another — one Dr. Hannibal Lecter. With Bryan Fuller's interpretation, there have now been three major screen adaptations of the book, including Michael Mann's Manhunter and Brett Ratner's Red Dragon. In the former, William Petersen and Brian Cox play Will and Hannibal, and in the latter, it's Edward Norton and Anthony Hopkins. Video editor Matthew Morettini found that the dialogue in each one remained remarkably faithful to Harris's book, which allowed him to seamlessly re-create the scene where Will first approaches Dr. Lecter to ask for his help. The edit is remarkable, and it allows you to see the distinct variations in each interpretation. »

In the first official images from “CSI: Immortality,” we see fan favorite characters Det. Jim Brass and Catherine Willows back in action. Marg Helgenberger, who plays Willows, departed the series after the 12th season, while Paul Guilfoyle, who plays Brass, left the show after the 14th. Both will return, along with Gil Grissom (William Petersen), for the two-hour finale event. Plot details for the finale are scarce, but we know that former members of the Las Vegas Crime Lab return to action after a catastrophic event paralyzes Las Vegas. Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) is also forced to make a decision regarding her career. »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...
A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.
As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »
