CSI RETURNS!!!
« on: April 01, 2021, 11:18:04 AM »
Even if Grissom and Sara appear for 30 minutes, I'm excited to see them on screen again!

And now--I'll share another bit of news: two years ago, Petersen's wife joined a CSI fan page I have on Facebook. She liked a lot of photos and occasionally posted a comment. One day she asked the source for some of the photos I'd posted--I told her. After that contact, I would ask a question (simple stuff) and she'd answer--she was home-schooling their kids, Petersen was working on a Zoom play, their kids were taking piano lessons online. Last year, she sent a message that a reboot of CSI was in the works--and several times during the past year, she's sent similar messages about this reboot project.

And yesterday, she sent a short message "It's happening" several hours before the official announcement came out. She said 'we are excited--it won't be the original but it looks like a great series'.
So--if Gina is onboard with this reboot, I think Petersen is ready for it.

Here's a recent glimpse of Petersen at the 40.00 mark!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlC4_Pvj1HE

Great news indeed!  All of them being a number of years older, it would be impossible to do the original series but this sounds very promising.  Just hope they can get most of the original cast to be part of it.

Article on MSN Entertainment this morning about the return of CSI.  Stars WP and GF plus David Langham as Hodges.  Those seem to be the only original stars returning; listed several other actors some of you probably know - I never heard of them but that's not unusual as I don't know anyone under 80 these days. Glad we kept the Board and looking forward to starting some good discussions again.

I am so excited about this.  Has anyone seen a tentative date when it will be aired?  oldfanatic, I'm with you.  I saw those names and went hmmm, wonder who they are.  ;D  I just hope they are adult actors and not the 20-something.  I guess I've just gotten too old (74 now) to appreciate the really young actors.  However, I will be glued to the set as soon as it starts.  WooHoo!  CSI Vegas.  Yeah, baby! :) :D ;D

Watched The Finale this afternoon (after a very long time) and had a number of remarks to make most of which I've forgotten because for some unknown reason I've had a hard time accessing the Board.  Anyway, remember when Catherine was talking to Russell as he packed up to leave, she said she missed her daughter and Las Vegas in general and would like to have the directors position if Sara didn't want it.  Would Sara or Grissom be the director in the new show or would Catherine be able to take it even with them returning?  Since I'd like to see as much of the original cast as possible come back I'd like to see her take that and they be sort of senior advisors or something.  I'd forgotten about Lady Heather but hope her appearance was the way of getting rid of her altogether.  Can't see any need at all for her to return.  Or that  young blonde whose name I can't remember.  Hope Sara and Grissom remarry and live happily ever after - no more angst there, just happy to be living and working together again.  Didn't much care for the girl who played Lindsey.  Wonder if Dakota Fanning would be available and whether as a grown up she would fit in.  Just a thought.  We know Langham will be back but has anyone heard anything about the others?  Or when the show will start airing again?  These days I feel that I don't have a lot of time for patience.
