Grissom, Grissom and more Grissom, 12 February 2007
Author: prh666 from Sonoran Desert, United States
Ohh and the Character Actors Henry Czerny and Jeffrey Combs. Subtle, simple but great acting. Also the scenery is wonderful and the background music goes great with the quirky often eccentric town that bleeds over into the episode. Which, all in all, is a nice change from the often dark, brooding and multi-directional plot scenarios of almost all CSI episodes. Once again William Peterson shows why, over his lengthy career, he has developed into a charismatic lead actor. He carries this episode and does it with ease. Like any long-running and successful drama or comedy TV series, there will be some good episodes and bad episodes. Many times creators will go back to what worked at first, when they are scared of failure or either trying to resurrect a dying show. The writers and creators of CSI were in neither situation, so they had freedom to run with Jackpot, and they succeeded in the chances they took - in spades. This episode is totally unique in many ways for CSI, while providing the distinct CSI flavor, of a forensic mystery. But the experiments(i.e. the chances) the writers took with things such as a different setting, 90% of the acting done by the male lead and non-series, but experienced character actors, and even humor. Yes, humor in a CSI and they pull it off many time in Jackpot. In a strange way it mirrors the David Lynch much hyped but short lived drama, "Twin Peaks". And CSI's Jackpot is delicious episodic television entertainment.
Best Episode ever I Love you Grissom, 25 March 2013

Been A big fan of CSI and i still i am.This is my first review of this show and I love "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: so much.I have been watching this show since it arrive on air. I saw a lot of episodes over the past few years on TV. But i never finished seeing all episodes in a complete Season. After Season 9 come i was really surprised and disappointed that Gil Grissom left the show and Laurence Fishburne replaced him in 2009. In 2011 Ted Danson replaced Laurence. This show is really going downhill fast to me. Without Gill and Catherine Willows this show is nothing.They were heart and soul of CSI and they still are. New characters are just hurting CSI and giving bad reputation i am surprised that CBS is still running them on air after what they did. CSI: Miami spin off CSI got canceled in April 8. 2012 and CSI : NY the third spin off was canceled February 22. ,this year a month ago after nine years on air. When i am watching from the beginning from the First Season that it aired in Oct. 6, 2000 Then this show was much better,awesome and it rocks like really hard,than the show it is now.After i saw the first three Seasons i thought Season 3 was the best of the first two but now actually i am considering The Fourth Season as best one. Season 4 is so far the best of the best Season in the long time running show it has the best episodes ever made, that you are even hooked up on it. I am so happy that they made more tense and excitement than in past three Seasons. No joke so far i saw first six episodes and i was really hooked up. In season 2 - 3 i was really bored mostly in Season 3. Some episodes were the best some were bad. But in Season 4 neither one episode disappointed me and this Season is awesome the best.Episode Jackpot is all about Gil Grissom all about him i love him so much.After a head of a body is sent to Dr.Al Robbins, Gill travels to desolate town Jackpot in Nevada to investigate the murder that head was found of body, he come cross on a sheriff who is more cynical than helpful unlike the veterinarian-coroner who helps him. Gill must work alone in the town to solve this case quickly as possible. Henry Czerny and Jeffrey Combs stars opposite in this episode. Great acting,great script best episode in the show. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Season Four is the best. You wan 't be disappointed with this Season. Also Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) and Nick Stokes (George Eads) dose not appear in this episode. This is the first time in three years of running that i have noticed that they both aren't in an episode CSI. Jackpot is unique and wonderful performed by actor William Petersen and actress Marg Helgenberger. 10 out of 10.
