Stunning Work From Writers and Cast
on September 12, 2007
CSI Season 7 was an absolute masterpiece. The plots were tight. The subplots even tighter (especially the dynamic of Greg killing a young man in self defense, the emergence of Hodges as an unsung hero, the addition of the ultra-talented Liz Vassey to the cast, the chemistry between Catherine/Keppler and Grissom/Sara.) The miniature killer theme is right up the alley with Hitchcock's finest, and the acting performances put this CSI above all other CSI and Law & Order shows. Every single episode during season seven was done with the trademark of Bruckheimer and Zuiker's unyielding excellence and class. It was impossible to take your eyes off of the screen, whether you are wondering what the miniature killer will do next, or watch Marg Helgenberger give her best career performance in the episode "Leaving Las Vegas," or the lab techs come within an eyelash of solving the riddle of the miniature killer in "Lab Rats." For fans of this show, thinking back through the episodes, it is just amazing places season seven took us, and the cliffhanger that will lead us all into season 8 serves as only a small slice of the tasty treats that this show is capable of offering. After all these episodes, it never gets stale or contrived. Every now and then, a show comes along that defines a generation and a genre, much like Seinfeld did for sitcoms during its run, and Star Trek and Twilight Zone did nearly half a century ago for sci-fi/horror. This show is one for the ages. Pick up this DVD. Push play, and let this cast take you for one unforgettable ride!
