With Fishburne’s Dr. Raymond Langston wrapping up his series run making way for Danson’s D.B. Russell in season twelve, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Eleventh Season is definitely another provocative and pivotal installment, and while the performances are always on par with the series storytelling brilliance, season eleven resides in a much more middle-of-the-road patch than previous; perhaps more shocking, seasons.
Subtleties aside though, what viewers lose in shock value this season they’ll certainly gain in story arc – especially with the multi-episode eeriness of serial killer Nate Haskell – bringing back the far more intriguing formula of a crime not easily solved in sixty minutes for the multi-faceted mystery reminiscent of season seven’s “Miniature Killer”.
Season eleven highlights include the bombing of Officer Clark’s funeral, a woman is attacked by a shark in a Las Vegas pool, Vampires and Werewolves run rampant and lose their heads, Nick goes huntin’ for hoarders, a student experiences death by dino, a small-town reporter gets caught up in dirty water deaths, a feline/fowl combo may break the case in a double homicide, a premonition prone website foretells the death of a prostitute, Hodges may have a murderous motorbike, the Grissom women fight over a professor, several surprises are found in thrift store boxes, Nick receives an icy blast from the past, the team “cycles” towards the end of their shift, Langston seeks guidance from Grissom’s “Lady Heather”, and the entire season is pock-marked with disturbing appearances and interactions with the now notorious Nate Haskell.
Providing one of the least commentary carrying sets of the entire series, only “House of Hoarders” and “A Kiss Before Frying” receive the talking treatment for season eleven. But stronger segments like “Getting Personal: Season 11 of CSI”, “Something Twisted This Way Comes” and “Intelligent Design: Creating Aeron’s Legion” more than make up for lost sound-bytes… and of course if all else fails, Dita Von Teese is sure to please.
So even with it’s somewhat even keel episodic run, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Eleventh Season still makes its mark and adds to one of the best crime series on television today.
