    Let the character be like Dr. Becker. CSI needs a jolt.

    Ted Danson, eh? I can’t imagine him in a serious rol. I’ve never seen the show but I’ll check it our just to see how he pulls it off. Intriguing choice, unlike the Ashton Kutcher decision, which is just plain stupid and guaranteed that I won’t ever watch that show again..
