Hi, Okay, so "CSI: NY" Season 4 started last night on Five, and if you missed it, it's repeated at 9pm tonight (Sunday 13th) on FiveUS, or 10pm on FiveUS +1. This thread, is purely just to see what people thought of the new characters and the opening episode in general. Please don't include any spoilers though, as this is not meant to be a long thread to discuss all of Season 4. Cheers! Here's my opinions: Good: - Loved new character Kendall Novak, played by Bess Wohl. Could be interesting to see her character develop with Med Lab Technician Adam Ross. Oh, and she's a real screen-burner! See photo here. - The plotline was good, if far-fetched, but at least it was believable, unlike "CSI: Miami"! - Nice to see some new lab equipment, especially the excellent device that the pathologist guy has, which creates a holographic 3D CGI image of the human skull, brain and head in general! Very cool! - The excellent use of CGI effects, especially for blood spatter, looked truly incredible, especially when Mac Taylor tries to recreate the murder, using a blood-filled dummy! Once you see that effect, it's really effective, almost beautiful in it's grimness! - The beginning of the Season-long story arc, and the significance (if any) of 3:33am! (If you've seen the episode, it'll make sense. If not, watch it, and it will all become clear. ) Bad: - The only let down, is the hideous reworking of the theme tune (The Who's "Baba O'Reilly"), which has been "chavved-up", with a horrible drum beat, and reverberation of the actual lyrics by Roger Daltrey, and it's bloody awful. (The new opening credits, though, are pretty cool, but without the Seasons 1-3 theme music, just doesn't work!) Other than that, a fun first episode. Can't wait to see how the Season-long story arc pans out! Pooch P.S. The actress playing Nova Kent, the pianist, is Alison Sudol. Does anyone know if a) that was really her singing in the episode, and b) if she's a genuine musician, or just a very good actress. Her music seen in the show, was really nice! Wouldn't mind listening to more of her works.
