CSI : Crate 'n' Burial
14 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strong third episode of CSI definitely signifies quite early why the series would be so lasting…good storytelling, strong characters, and tragic developments that define human nature (both, at its ugliest and best). What I thought was significantly strong (and, again, something now quite recognizable in dialogue on forensic shows and criminal television) was Warrick's response to Catherine regarding letting their case go as was headed (a grandfather willing to take the rap for his grandson over a hit-and-run of a little girl on her scooter at night): they must "follow the evidence no matter where it leads them" because criminalistics involves catching those responsible for crimes committed even if those ultimately guilty aren't bad people. A supposed underground burial involving a wealthy businessman's wife, her position held for ransom until he pays up, might not be as it seems and it is up to Grissom, Sara, and Nick to determine what was going on. A bruise on the burial victim's face, "audio forensics" on a recording of the ransom demand from a payphone and what it ultimately entails, use of a particular kind of infrared device that indicates heat signatures underground while Grissom and Sara are in a helicopter, and a colleague of the businessman's grabbing the duffel bag containing the ransom money are certain developments that lead to twisty results so crucial to the success and thrills of CSI. I loved Grissom's early tutelage of Sara who was a "star pupil" of his and how she becomes an exceptional criminalist under his mentorship, which is shown here in how he reduces her analysis of what happened at the kidnap scene by finding dirt. You see Grissom also encourage the best from Nick, worrying that he wouldn't devote all his creative energies to seeing all the evidence pursued passionately (the auto recording and getting the most out of what it has to get answers to the kidnapping-ransom scenario). Warrick providing his number to a kid going to jail and seeing Catherine take off early for her daughter's birthday show that he is a really cool guy; he just has flaws like we all do.
