This episode marked the debut of "Jo Danville" (Sela Ward) who has
taken the position formerly held by "Stella Bonasera" (Melina
Kanakaredes) who is now the boss of a CSI in New Orleans.
Danville's first day on the CSI-New York job is pretty memorable, to say the least. About the first thing she comes across is a murder that took place in the CSI lab! Now that's a first, admits CSI boss "Mac Taylor" (Gary Sinise) The who's, what's and why's I'll leave for you readers when you watch this season, which just came out recently on DVD and how I am viewing it.
What is the new woman like? Well, "Jo" is pretty cocky, intelligent, bold, has a sick sense of humor and is very pretty. In other words, about what you'd expect out of female CSI agent on television. Ward is a mid-50s actress who certainly doesn't look her age.
Let us discuss the pile of wreckage Pam Veasey racked up in her career
as showrunner on CSI:NEW YORK. This was the beginning of the end for
this once great show. This woman is the architect of this show's fall
from grace. The summer of 2010 was when she allowed CBS to screw over
Melina Kanakaredes and move the show to the Friday night deathslot. The
clock began officially ticking till the end with this episode. Pam
Veasey is the reason this became the only CSI series to not reach 10
seasons, to not reach 10 years on the air, to not attain the vaunted
status of a 200th episode.
For the way Veasey allowed CBS to stab Melina Kanakaredes in the back, she should have retired from television work. Pam Veasey has no honor, no backbone, no guts, no integrity, no affinity for the fans. That was seen on full display when she co-wrote the CSI:CYBER episode GOING VIRAL. Set in New York but did not include any characters from CSI:NEW YORK. This show got weaker and weaker and weaker as the years went on. I have watched so little of the Sela Ward DVD sets that I don't even know the episodes that contributed the DVD mintage music save for Season 8 since FLASH POP had such a distinct soundtrack. Without Melina Kanakaredes/Stella Bonasera, this show lost Its spark. It just continued to deteriorate.
