Jorja Fox: CSI Is a Keeper, So I'm a Goner

Jorja Fox by Andrew MacPherson/CBS

Explaining that there are many things, both personal and professional, that she wants to do — "and I really need to do some of them before I get too old" — Jorja Fox confirms the biz's worst-kept secret, that her days as a CSI are ending, partly because the hit procedural isn't. "If I thought the show were on its last legs, I would've tried harder to stay the course," she tells Entertainment Weekly. "But I feel like it's going to be around for a while." As such, she says, "I have to get off the ride." With Fox's send-off slated for sometime during November sweeps, might Sara-Grissom fans receive proper closure? "I don't think you're going to get that," Fox recently told the Ausiello Report. "This might sound vain, but the story of Sara and Grissom is a little like a fable, and most great fables don't really have 100 percent resolution." read more

The Secret Life of Bees

Episode Recap: “Go to Hell”It’s hot as hell in Vegas. The temperature is 109 degrees and rising — but don’t worry. People don’t start getting crazy until it’s 110.Maybe that thermometer’s a little off.Distorted, grotesque people are staggering around in the blistering heat while Harold Perrineau—yes, that’s Papa Michael from ABC’s Lost—is preaching about Hell and damnation. Hell, in case you were wondering, isn’t a possible afterlife. It’s a night of terrible storms in which my cable keeps going out while I’m trying to watch CSI! OK, fine, it’s actually right here in Vegas. Meanwhile, there are a million bees flying around. Keep an eye on the bees. They’re a sign of the coming apocalypse.On their way to a crime scene, the CSIs stumble across one of the previously mentioned distorted, grotesque people (I’m so mean, I know) lying dead in a pile of trash. There’s a dead bee lying near him.Cat... read more

Preview: Hell on Earth

“Go to Hell.” Hey, don't take that personally; it's just the title of CSI's next devilish episode, in which an entire family is murdered — except for a daughter. But as it turns out, she might be the most unfortunate one of all. Why? It appears that she may be possessed by demons and in need of an exorcism (spooky!) — or at the very least, an intervention from Grissom (even spookier!). — Tim Holland read more

Please tell me that CSI isn't ...

Question: Please tell me that CSI isn't hinting at a relationship starting up between Warrick and Catherine. Ewww!


Answer: I don't think Warrick is going to be relationship material for quite some time. I'm hearing he's headed for quite the dramatic post-divorce spiral. We're talking drugs, alcohol, stripper sex — you know, the Big Three.

I enjoy your writing very ...

Question: I enjoy your writing very much and very often completely agree with you. But after reading your recent Dispatch on Wednesday-night shows, I felt compelled to write and say I disagree with you on Dirty Sexy Money and Life. I know Money is supposed to be a hoot of a soap, but I found it pretty insufferable. Who wants to spend time with these people? Even for all that money, why would Peter Krause's character (who's constantly praised by the others as being such a "good" person) put up with them for one more day? And I'm hardly drawn to even sample cop shows anymore (don't get me started on the CBS procedurals), but I found Life to be a very nice surprise. Funny and tense, with some moving moments, (Spoiler alert) like Crews helping his recovering partner when she's freaked out by unexpectedly encountering drugs and acknowledging that by shooting a suspect, he's shot and killed another human being. I do think Damian Lewis' performance isn't exactly "beyond reproach" — sometimes ... read more

CSIs A Go-Go

Episode Recap: "A La Cart" Sara is striding through the office, cleaned up but bruised and bandaged, with her arm in a sling. Everyone is giving her strange looks as she walks toward Conrad Eckles’ office. Eckles is trying to reach Grissom — he’s leaving what is apparently his third message — but Sara claims she doesn’t know where he is, either. And I have to wonder, is she lying? She looks awfully sad as she says it, so maybe she really doesn’t know where he is.Eckles starts rights in. It’s an administrative hearing, being held because she and Grissom were — are, Sara corrects him — in direct violation of lab policy. And, Eckles wants to know, when did it start? Two years ago, Sara says. She thinks it was a Sunday.Suddenly we’re watching what looks like a motorcycle helmet bounce down a road, being hit by several trucks before it lands at the feet of men doing some road work. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I thought we... read more

CSI Preview: The Lighter Side of Crime Solving

Marg Helgenberger and Gary Dourdan, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Last week, months of speculation came to an end with an eighth-season opener that kept us on the edge of our seats and finally revealed Sara Sidle's fate (she's alive, but how long will she stick around?). Tonight's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (9 pm/ET, CBS), entitled "A la Cart" and written by Sarah Goldfinger and Richard Catalani, offers a breather, an episode that's "slightly more lighthearted and should be fun for the audience," says Catalani. Our favorite clue-finders dive into two cases: The first is a death at a restaurant where patrons dine completely in the dark. "The dining-in-the-dark story Sarah Goldfinger experienced firsthand," explains Catalani. "She went to a trendy [Laughs] restaurant where you dine in the actual pitch-black darkness, and we thought that was interesting enough to formulat read more

I was wondering if you could ...

Question: I was wondering if you could give me some more spoilers for CSI.


Answer: Producers are adding another new female character that sources say could stick around on a recurring basis. She's described as an ex-mob wife in her early forties who entered the witness protection program with her son to escape the bad men. I have a strong hunch that this is for the mob-centric episode that William Friedkin is directing this November. I also have a strong hunch that this character may be coming on as a love interest for the newly single Grissom.

Two and a Half Men Plus CSI Equals Killer Laughs

Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen by Greg Gayne/CBS

While CSI plans to unspool "The Case of the Murdered Diva" (well documented by Ausiello), at least one clue has slipped out about Two and Half Men's half of the famous and seemingly improbable writing staff swap (first teased here in June). When last I checked in with him, Men cocreator Chuck Lorre said that he and his CSI counterparts "were still talking" about what their take on his CBS sitcom would entail, but at least this much is for certain: "There's going to be a dead body on Two and Half Men," Lorre told me. My concern: If the dead body belongs to a hot blonde, just how much leeway will Standards & Practices allow the always-opportunistic Charlie Harper. read more
