‘CSI: Cyber – The Complete Season One’ Review

Stars: Patricia Arquette, James Van Der Beek, Shad Moss, Charley Koontz, Hayley Kiyoko | Created by Ann Donahue, Carol Mendelsohn, Anthony E. Zuiker

When a new CSI show is premiered it has a hard task to live up to the shows that have run before them. This was one problem with CSI: Cyber.

We last saw Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) in CSI: Las Vegas when she appeared as the “Cyber” expert, helping on a case. Now in her own environment she has her own team of hackers, as well as former marine Elijah Mundo (James Van Der Beek) fighting against the rising world of cyber-crime. Using Patricia Arquette as the lead character was a good move, and the character of Avery Ryan is interesting. Her history of being a psychologist who had her records hacked leading to her patients becoming vulnerable to this attacker makes for a deep and interesting character.

CSI: Cyber: The Inevitable Farewell

  Wow. Another CSI spin-off bites the dust. After two seasons of cyber crime fighting, CSI: Cyber, the fourth and final addition to the CSI franchise has been written off, for lack of a better phrase, by CBS. I am both saddened and shocked by this news. A few weeks ago, I replied to a tweet posted by Charley Koontz, who plays Agent Daniel Krumitz, on Twitter. I had asked him if the show is coming back for a third season and he said that they will know in a week or so. We both hoped that it would be

The original CSI has now ended while CSI: NY and CSI: Miami were both cancelled years ago. Now, just one CSI program in the franchise remains. Will CSI: Cyber run for many years like it's predecessors or, will it be cancelled instead?  Will it see a third season? Stay tuned.

CSI: Cyber is bringing a familiar face to the team — and saying goodbye to a different one. The CBS procedural's season-two premiere airs Sunday, picking up after last season's finale in which Avery (Patricia Arquette) tracked down the person who had hacked her, while David Krumitz's (Charley Koontz) sister Francine (Angela Trimbur) murdered the man who killed their parents. Showrunner Pam Veasey tells The Hollywood Reporter how D.B. Russell's arrival (Ted Danson) and Simon Sifter's (Peter MacNicol) departure impact Avery.

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Email Security': Sony hack attack

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Email Security': Sony hack attack
A quick review of this week's "Community" (available, as usual, on Yahoo Screen) coming up just as soon as I'm stoked for "Avengers"... "Basic Email Security" was, as Abed acknowledged in one of the closing scenes, the third in what's for now been a trilogy of "Community" stories where the group turns on each other as various secrets come out. (See also season 2's "Cooperative Calligraphy" and last season's "Cooperative Polygraphy.") There was definitely a sense of diminishing returns with this one, even with a parody of the Sony hacking scandal(*) grafted on top of it. (*) Sony, of course, produces "Community." But there were a few twists and tweaks to the familiar structure that made this a fun one. First, we got to see what it would be like if Britta was the group's leader, delivering the rambling speeches and firing everyone up, and the episode presented her as a mix of inspiring and,

Review Round-Up: ‘Contracted’ & ‘The Skeleton Twins’

Contracted

Stars: Najarra Townsend, Charley Koontz, Matt Mercer, Alice Macdonald, Katie Stegeman, Caroline Williams | Written and Directed by Eric England

Contracted, originally screened at Frightfest back in 2013, stars Najarra Townsend as Samantha, a young woman who contracts something nasty after being date-raped at a party. Over the course of a few short days, she begins bleeding from pretty much every orifice and quite literally falling to bits. Her already fragile relationships with her friends, colleagues and mother (Caroline Williams) also start to break down as she refuses to seek help and becomes increasingly isolated.

The body horror elements within the film were really well done – that is to say, very icky. Cronenberg fans will be well satisfied with the deterioration of the flesh on display here. The film’s portrayal of an insular and personal crisis is well done. Samantha is on a self-destructive path in addition to the horrifying illness she finds herself with.

CSI: Cyber Season 1 Review

Perhaps to distract from tired dialogue and convenient plot holes, or simply in attempt to suck as much entertainment from the world as possible, the latest iteration of the timeworn CSI franchise wastes no time in trying to scare the audience. Yes, from baby kidnapping to murderous car services to dysfunctional roller coasters and subways, CSI: Cyber will try and unnerve. That is, however, only if you buy into the more ridiculous elements of this CBS drama that deals with a ‘new type of criminal” dabbling in nefarious, murderous acts that can happen to anyone, even you.

Add in what we’ve come to expect from CSI – an attractive, diverse group of agents, lots of quick cuts, impeccable (and unreal) timing, and of course a song by The Who – and you’ve basically got Cyber. However, the third spinoff of what truly is a remarkable franchise is different from the
