CSI - Sweet Jane

Overview: The team has a hard time trying to understand Michael who has become a team member since Grissom’s teaching hiatus. They investigate the murder of an unidentified girl who may have been killed by a serial killer who has been killing since the early 1970’s.

This episode aired January 18. I watched about about 1/2 this morning before work and finished the rest this evening.

Pam's Review: This one is definitely not a favorite. It had very little of the main characters, with the exception of Catherine, and the case was below average. This episode left me feeling pretty bored. Although I was a bit surprised to find out who the killer was.

Liev Schreiber (Michael Keppler) does quite well in the first episode of his guest stint on the show. Keppler appears to be very similar to Grissom in the sense that he is very low key and analytical and I like that.

What I didn't like in this episode is the good writing style that we have seen quite a bit in the past on "CSI." This episode seemed more focused introducing Schreiber's character than giving the viewer a good story to get involved in. I hope this flaw will be corrected in future episodes.
