CSI First Look: Welcome, Elisabeth Shue!

at . Comments

Goodbye, Catherine Willows. Hello, Julie Finlay!

With Marg Helgenberger having bid farewell to CSI this week, it won't take too long for the CBS drama to replace this key member of the team: Elisabeth Shue will make her debut as Finlay on the February 15 installment, "Seeing Red."

"Elisabeth's character will share a past, in another crime lab, with [D.B. Russell]," Don McGill, executive producer, said in a statement. "The first time things didn't go so well between the two of them. Maybe the second time's the charm, or not."

Get your first look at Shue in the CSI lab now:

I liked this episode last night. I think I am beginning to like Danson's character a little better now. At first he seemed a little wierd. Last night it seemed he was really becoming part of the team and I could take him a little more seriously. Fishburne was good but he is a movie star for the most part and sometimes that does not tranfer to television. The same with the guy from the spin off of Criminal Minds. He just did not transfer well to television either.


Fishburne as the actor was good, however his character was a dark, brooding, character who didn't want to be "in the system". This caused the two seasons he was on to go very, very, VERY dark... I think Danson has done a much better job of feeling more like Grissom and being brought in as a seasoned veteran (instead of just joining) it is much easier to believe he could lead the team. I'm looking forward to see how Shue does..


What was wrong with Laurence Fishburne's character he rock


wow not wasting any time bringing her in. hopefully she is better than Laurence Fishburne's character. but i guess they did similar when grissom left.
