    Did anyone else stay up for the season premiere of CSI last night? I'm not impressed with Danson's character and probably won't be following this season. I have a few seasons on dvd and will just go to my favorites when I need a CSI fix.

    The show hasn't been the same since William Peterson left. I couldn't warm up to Lawrence Fishburn's character. I recorded the show last night but haven't watched it.

    Interested in hearing your reaction when you are able to watch it. I agree that William Peterson was the best.

    I probably won't be following it either, I'm not a Ted Danson fan.

    I had problems with Lawrence Fishburn's character also and stopped watching the show when he joined. Didn't even bother to watch the season opener. I am interested to see what everyone else thought and maybe I'll stay up late to watch an episode or 2 if it's better.

    I liked Fishburn's part -- but not Danson's!!! As for William Peterson's part ---- well, he was a little too odd for me!
    I must have missed the last show of the season last year!!! What did Fishburn's part do that caused him to leave?

    I loved Fishburn's character. Really liked the opener last night. If you have a chance to see movie Thurgood, don't miss it! One of the all time best. It is a filming of a stage tour de force that Fishburn did.

    I've been watching CSI all along and have liked all the main characters. Of course, William Peterson was the best, but I have also liked Lawrence Fishburn and now Ted Danson. I think they're just making him seem kooky and eccentric to make him hard to like at first, and to offset the very troubled and serious character that Fishburn played. I'm looking forward to more with Ted Danson and think he will fit in just fine.

    I agree...something about his eyes that aren't right - darkness there.

    I'm not normally a Ted Danson fan, but thought he played his part well. It still isn't the same, but I will give it a chance since it is one of my favorites.

    I kinda watched it.... (fell asleep on the couch)
    I'l give it a second watch before I make a desicion. I think
    it was because his character was so different from the others.

    I tend to agree with you! I like both of them. I go bored with it when Red was leading the group, so it's good to see a new boss now. I think it's best to give Ted a chance & watch a few episodes, before deciding not to like him. Peterson was great, but as I recall, he was weird at times too, especially when the show first started....

    I really like Ted Danson in the part. I like his goofiness. I've weathered the changes pretty good over the years. I liked William Peterson and Laurence Fishbourne. Lived through Sara coming and going. Now Catherine Willows is leaving the show and I'm thrilled. Couldn't stand her from the beginning. They just better leave my Greg alone. He is my fav!

    Catherine (Red) is leaving the show? I hadn't heard that! I like her, the actress anyway, but didn't like her leading the group last season. I really think Ted will work out well!

    I have been watching CSI since it first started. Seldom missed an episode. Will not be watching this year as I can't stand Ted Danson. They also changed the night and time.

    I think Ted will be ok once we get used to him, I like the idea of the quirky character.
    I, like every one else miss William Petersen terribly. He is a doll :!:

    Right here with you on this! Sarah and Grissom really made the show. Not to take anything away from Nick, Catherine did not age gracefully....

    I'm going to give Ted Danson a couple more shows to see how they develop his character. I saw a few interesting things, minor things, that might develop into an interesting character. I am not a Ted Danson fan.

    Catherine is Marge Helgenberger (sp)? she's had a time trying to stay young for that show. plastic surgery wasn't good early on but she improved over time. with more surgery probably. i loved her in China Beach!
