Did You Know?


Despite Peyton being first introduced in Mac's bed, their romance doesn't take over the cases and it's subtly depicted in the episode. According to a make up artist and based on the close ups of Melina Kanakaredes, looks like the soft powder she has regularly been using in her eyes has changed to liquid eyeliner. Both cases seem to be disconnected, and Danny and Hawkes don't have any small moment with the rest of the team. Looks like they were shot at different locations and/or dates. Apparently, Mac and Peyton first met when she first worked at the M.E.'s office and they started dating while she was at Columbia. She's recently joined back the M.E's office, most likely over the summer, so Mac has gotten into a relationship for some time now and the team doesn't seem to know about it. It's not clear if Mac's private condition is motivating it or if there's deeper uncomfortable reasons. But it makes sense that he would get into something serious with someone he has known for a while and not someone random. It is really cute touch of normalcy the lightheartedness with wich Lindsay and Stella tease Flack on the bridge. He seems happy and he probably needs to hear that despite the tragic explosion he was involved in and the scars he bears women still find him attractive. Peyton tries hard to make Mac happy with her cheerfulness and optimism and Mac tries to make her happy showing no emotional trauma after the explosion in 2x24 Charge of this Post. Both of them behave more relaxed when they aren't around each other. For example, when Mac kisses Peyton in a public sphere, he seems to be reassuring her as much as he is reassuring him. And when he holds her hand, it feels more like a don't go hand catch than a stay here hand catch. They seem to work a tad too hard for it to naturally work. Even though Flack doesn't suffer from the severe injuries he suffered in 2x24 Charge of this post, there is some kind of continuation to them. See more »

Opening Scene Had Me Wondering; Two New Characters Introduced
12 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of the three CSI shows, I always thought this was the best because it centered more on the crimes than on soap opera material, kinky sex stuff, and whatever. Thus, I raised an eyebrow at the opening scene of this Season Three opener when we see two 20-somethings disrobing for "bungee sex" off the Brooklyn Bridge. Don't tell me.....

Well, this premier episode quickly settled into two good crime stories so my fears are allayed at least for the first week. What was notable was the appearance of a couple of new women: Claire Forlani as "Dr. Payton Driscoll" and Emmanuel Vaugier as "Det. Jennifer Angel." Of the two, it looks like Forlani will have a regular role since they also showed her in bed with Gary Sinise in that opening scene, as well. She's okay but her strong accent is slightly annoying. Vaugier reminds me a bit of Vanessa Ferlito, who left the show after the first year. I liked her a lot so I hope "Det. Angel" is a regular, too.

The two stories, in nutshell, involve young and very rich people. One guy is killed and has a metal miniature Statue Of Liberty implanted in his chest. He was the dead guy the bungee jumpers discovered on the bridge. (I presume it ruined their evening of wild sex.)

The other victim is a female with bruises all over and some LSD-type markings on the roof of her mouth. She was found dead on the floor of her penthouse.

Some other notes: It was an interesting a now gray-haired Michael Nouri in a small role......It looks the stylish camera-work is more so now, which is fine with me.

Overall, a "fair" episode, not quite up to par for a season opener but okay. (Note: I am watching this season a year later on DVD and after watching the second week's story, I think they should have used that one - with the "Holly Golightly" jewel thieves - as the opener, since that was really a unique and cleaner opening scene.)
