I'll admit, I was one of those who made jokes when I read Ted Danson had joined the cast for this season. But you know what? He works. His character is the exact opposite of Langston (who I was excited about initially, but he really wasn't adding much)...and pretty much everyone else. The rest of the cast is single and career-driven, and Danson's character has a family, which seems to boggle the minds of others on staff and he seems to have a little more personality, too.

In the end, CSI is always going to be more about the crimes than the characters' personal lives. That's okay by me, but it is nice to have some broader characters on the show, and I look forward to this season being less doom-and-gloom, as the producers have promised.

It was aight.

This probably won't bring me back to CSI - especially while it's in the same timeslot as SVU. I will usually lose the battle for the remote. (We'll see how it goes with THEIR cast changes - it's on the DVR.)

Danson's character felt too much like Jeff Goldblum's on L&O:CI for my liking.

I have to agree with geemoney, he will be less-bland than Langston who was too much like a Grissom clone but with a darker side.

This was the first time in many years I missed an episode of CSI. I can't stay up that late with its new timeslot and I never get around to watching anything we record. Three kids (two teenagers) will do that to your television consumption. Maybe I will watch the Danson years in syndication.

Interesting resolution and fallout from the Langston character storyline from last season (which was ridiculous).

Danson's character seems to be trying a little too hard to be quirky, even if he is supposed to be from Portland. I did get a laugh out of the farmer's market reference (which I'm sure was lost on anybody not familiar with Portland).

If these changes get the show back on an even keel of weekly crime stories and out of the long-run 'super killer' nonsense, it will keep me on board.

Stylish fluff. That's what I'm looking for in a crime show.

I was surprised Danson got top billing in the opening credits.

It's clear how they're going to handle Marg Helgenberger leaving at the end of this season, too.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from District 9, but for what it was trying to achieve, it's very good. Harsh, grimy, very gross and very disturbing science fiction-as-mockumentary. Also, incredibly violent.
