If we get fussy, the ‘reboot’ of the series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, titled CSI: Vegas (Before Las Vegas, it was assumed, as the value, although the Castilian translation included the name), it is not the first reboot. Actually, it would be the fifth reinvention of the original series. That if we do not take into account the franchises CSI Miami, CSI New York Y CSI Cyber, all of them susceptible, likewise, to new television recreations. Because the end of CSI (that telefilm, divided into two episodes, Immortality, with which the series said goodbye to viewers in the form of Celtas Cortos or as Miguel Ríos) had the same concept as the new series that premieres this Fall (yes, we still have to wait and no, there is still no specific date) and that serves as a sequel, but before we had another three reboots in between.
The series had to have ended when Gil Grissom (William Petersen) left the laboratory after nine seasons (the series went up to 15); Or rather, when producers and screenwriters decided that their replacement, Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger), was not enough (who was) to carry the weight of the series. That, because they did not want to bet on the character of Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), who was not the official substitute, but was the natural substitute. And yet they tried to breathe life into the series first with Michael ‘Mike’ Kepler (Liev Schreiber), when CSI started gasping, and then with Raymond Langston (Lawrence Fishburne) and DB Russell (Ted Danson) when Petersen left the show. Home. And I wonder: will the fifth time be the charm? I don’t know but, unlike from the Frasier remake or from the ninth season of Dexter (it was enough for us and we had plenty of the original ending of Dexter), I’m looking forward to finding out.

The fatigue of an actor in front of his character should be a good indicator of the expiration date of the series. After leaving CSI, Grissom continued to be a shadow presence, but only to the extent that she gave us information about Sara Sidle’s character, which was honestly doing a disservice to the coroner played by Jorja Fox, which, I insist, would have been an excellent headliner. They got married, divorced and got back together in the final episode of the series (well, which we thought was the final episode of the series), proving that Grissom was capable of love, but that he was only capable of loving Sara. And we come to the reboot of the series, more than twenty years after its premiere and six years after its alleged closure and the question, seriously, is: does it make sense to resurrect CSI?
Kepler, the ephemeral, had a pass. It was the first time that Grissom was replaced to see what happened. William Petersen had not yet officially left the series, but I was already in Jim Parsons mode and he had taken a sabbatical. Season 7 wasn’t bad, it gave us a few good episodes, it proved Willows was a hottie, and we always knew that Schreiber’s character had an expiration date. Langston and Russell, yes, they kept the machine going, but it wasn’t the same anymore. And beware, Fisbburne and Danson – against all odds – were very good, but the series had lost its spark. Precisely, all that dance of the main characters of the series is what makes a CSI reboot make sense, unlike those other series … where it has none. Now is when you say it was a choral series and that’s when I say no. Yes, we liked Hodges, yes that Nick Stokes and his “nobody gives hard to peseta” ended up making us return week after week to see what his new hairstyle was, but in the end it was the boss of the whole show who attracted powerfully our attention. At CSI it was Grissom, at CSI Miami, Horatio, and at CSI New York … Lieutenant Daaaan … well, okay, Gary Sinise.
So the remake, sequel, reboot, reinvention, call it whatever you want, it makes sense to the extent that they never really let it end. CSIAnd since she survived on assisted ventilation for six more years, we never called it off when we were supposed to have terminated it. We got lost with so many fireworks. In addition, several CSI spin-offs coexisted at the same time, so we had not completely said goodbye to that wonderfully predictable television formula in which the criminal was always the first suspect to appear in the series (I have a whole elaborate theory about it, I’ll tell you the same thing another day).
Plot: Grissom returns to the new sequel to CSI Las Vegas … half
To return what is said to return is not that Grisson returns in the reboot. Come back, come back, but it’s only going to be in two episodes. From what we have been able to elucidate from the first trailer, there is a reasonable doubt about how the Grissom team worked, and Grissom himself, in several cases. You already know that the shadow of suspicion was always in the last seasons of the series flying over the cocoroto of the good Jim Brass, who has also been confirmed to return to the series. All the weight of the investigation is going to carry it, tachán, Sara Sidle! And that’s the real reason why the remake is worth it: the sequel is going to do justice to one of CSI’s great characters, to one of the two candidates who could really succeed Grissom at the helm of the series.
Nothing else has transpired, except that Hodges (Wallace Langham) also returns. The logical thing is to think that once the flagship of the franchise is resurrected, more characters will return, but that it is a surprise. There is, of course, a new head of the Las Vegas Crime Lab, a new Level III CSI taking over as Sidle, but twenty years later, another coroner … well, you get the picture. Paula Newsome, Matt Lauria, Mel Rodríguez and Mandeep Dhillon bring these new characters to life.
