CSI's Big "'Brown'-Out" Merits Tears, Not Jeers...
11 October 2008 | by (Arlington, VA.) – See all my reviews

Okay, CSI Fan, c'mon, admit it: you knew when last season left us with the horrific image of a mortally wounded Warrick Brown slumped over his steering wheel bleeding out, after being ambushed by the DIRRTY-er-than-Christina-Aguilera Undersheriff McKeen (Conor O'Farrell), what was coming next. It was all over the entertainment news wires, the speculation brewed for months: there was no way Gary Dourdan would be staying with the show.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have confirmation. Even the too-often shown previews made it pretty clear - Warrick was going from being a team member to becoming their most important case. Every cop show comes to this "very special episode" point sooner or later, and CSI's farewell to the troubled Mr. Brown was neither pitifully underwhelming, nor ridiculously over-the-top. As close as the team has become (at least on-screen), we knew that banding together to find Warrick's killer wasn't even in question. Nor was the equal participation with them in the hunt for the murderer by Jim Brass, who has always been a de-facto CSI member anyway.

If anything does stand out, it was seeing Gil Grissom's zen-like exterior finally slip and fall, to reveal the devastated man beneath, who not only lost a valuable team member and a close friend, but someone he mentored almost like he would his son...if he had one. Of all the team members, Warrick would've been the one Gil might have groomed to take his place when he finally strolled out the door for that "permanent coffee break."

No telling how that will go now, although we also know that Laurence Fishburne will be stepping in eventually, as Bill Petersen relinquishes his lead role in front of the camera and remains only as an Executive Producer.

What other changes will these departures bring? It will be interesting to watch...and the show is in need of a tune-up after what? Nine seasons?

Well, considering, Warrick couldn't have asked for a more dignified send-off.
