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.
