Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Kacey Monahan
Sally Rand


Serial killer genius Nate Haskell enjoyed his attack in jail on Langston, who loses a kidney. At the funeral of uniformed officer Franklin Clark, a cleverly planned and detonated series of bombs would have killed many policemen hadn't Nick, who was hurt before and asked to leave by the family, spotted suspicious insect behavior. The bombs are traced to an anti-government society, including the McCann brothers. Nick talks sense into junior Jason. Yet a booby-trapped homeless corpse indicates the LVPD remains targeted. Written by KGF Vissers

A Very Disappointing Return To This Show
12 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After being a big fan of the show but turned off big-time by end of the eighth season, this was my first look at the show in three years. I was disgusted; it not only hadn't gotten better, it's become worse! (Hopefully, that will change as the season goes on and I didn't totally waste my money on this DVD.) Except for one crossover series (I still never miss a CSI-Miami or CSI-New York episode), I was also curious to see what "Ray Langston" was like on a regular basis. Off this episode, it's hard to say he didn't have a whole lot to say, although he still appeared to be running things from a hospital bed.

The annoying things included the overt political bias showing cartoon-like patriot characters, an out-of-place teen idol Justin Bieber, a new CSI person with an English accent so thick I couldn't understand half of what she said, another cheap shot again against anyone who believes in heaven (said by "Sara Sidle,"), a very hostile "Capt. Brass" (has he changed since I last saw him in Season 8?).

CSI-NY and CSI-Miami give you crime stories and an occasional personal story, but rarely deal in politics and religion. It's too bad this show has to be in-your-face with those things, on too many occasions.

Oh, well, it was still fun seeing the old "gang" - George Eads, Eric Szmanda, Marg Helgenberger, Paul Guilfoyle, Jorja Fox, Robert David Hall, David Berman, etc., and I thought the scene in which "Catherine" was trying to convince "Nick" to see a shrink was very touching.

I'm really hoping things get better than this lame opening episode.
