Too Many Punks
13 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young girl, a "suicide club," a lot of sleaze and rude, obnoxious young people.....just the kind of show I don't like and the kind that - up until this season - this CSI version usually didn't feature. Man, the direction CSI-NY appears to be headed this season is one direction

  • the MTV crowd. You get loud music and one quick-flashing scene after

another, shots that last less than a second, one after the other and enough to give you a headache.

No, I wasn't happy with this story. It's too sordid and features too many young people you want slap right in the face! Nothing but punks, literally, since we deal with punk-rock kids.

The second story was better, maybe because I'm a sports fan and am familiar with the Rucker history of hoops in NYC but still, the guest characters in this episode were anything but appealing and fun to watch and hear.
