He’s trying to hold a crazy group of people [together].”

Overall, look for a lighter character and a lighter season ahead on CSI. To that end, watch Danson in action in the following clip, as Russell tries to get a witness to open up:

I don't like Ted Danson's character. He needs to leave right now! I'm glad Grissom will be back for Catherine's departure. We saw him last season, we'll see him again, this time, hopefully have him walk into the crime lab again. It's been a long time. The show is not good with Ted Danson and without William Petersen or Laurence Fishburne. Very stupid to have Ted Danson as a regular, not a special guest star. Dreadfully bad. WRITE HIM OUT!!!
