Gentle Nick sees everyone sort of eases into the reshuffle after Grissom's departure, even 'recruit' Raymond Langston, who has method and brains but lacks any experience. An explosion unexpectedly calls them away across town from a robbery scene to a murder. A traceable stolen laptop opens the dysfunctional Palento family's tragic can of criminal worms.

MutantX in a CSI Episode
22 January 2009 | by kinshasa6969See all my reviews

I love the fact that we have Victoria Pratt and Lauren Lee Smith back together again. The fact that Lauren played an "Empath" in MutantX and is playing a character that seems to lack empathy is interesting.

Victoria Pratt, well, she's Victoria Pratt. She ROCKS!!! Although Victoria is playing someone that works out and takes care of herself is not new. I wish they had given her a chance to play a character with more substance.

It's unfortunate that ratings for MutantX weren't higher. These two ladies had a chemistry that rocks the charts.

I'm just glad to see them working together, again. Then, add Laurence Fishbourne... I'm in pure heaven!
