This review is from: CSI: Las Vegas- Complete Season 10 [DVD] (DVD)
The loss of Grissom was handled well considering it was such a huge loss, compounding the earlier loss of Warrick. Laurence Fishburne filled the void admirably. He's a good actor and I looked forward to watching him develop his character, mixing and blending with the others in the show. BUT, I've heard that Fishburne is leaving CSI Las Vegas?!? Don't know why, or when, but it seems soon. The replacement mentioned on a 'behind Hollywood' type show was shockingly horrifying. Ted Danson - he of 'Cheers' and '3 Men and a Baby'!!?? Surely not?!
CSI are a fantastic show. (Apart from Miami where the characters seem weak and very one dimensional.) Las Vegas and New York are worlds better, with characters you want to watch and know more about. But... TED DANSON?... in Las Vegas? Laurence Fishburne after William Petersen I can cope with, and want to watch. I don't think such a shocking replacment will work. 'Leaving Las Vegas' is inevitable if what was broadcasted is going to be true.
I'm scouting out CSI Las Vegas 11, I need my CSI-fix. Fishburne is believable and his character solid, totally watchable. That his charaters genetic make-up leans toward the serial-killer ilk is a good twist, almost 'Dexter-ish', and could make some gripping storylines. Series 11 & 12 maybe the last I'll be able to watch. Please, pleeeeeeeeease keep Fishburne!!!!!!
