CSI “Target of Obsessions” Review

CSI "Target of Obsessions" Season 11 Episode 15 – CSI returned this week to its tried-and-true formula of two ongoing story lines. "Target of Obsessions" actually picks up the recurring storylines of TWO previous CSI characters: Justin Bieber’s Jason McCann and Nate Haskell. It’s not often that procedurals like CSI even have recurring characters, since they usually just introduce and excuse characters on an episode by episode basis. While some people may not like characters recurring, since the whole point of procedurals is to be able to pick up the show at any time, I personally love more serialized fare so I’m excited to see this trend.

One of the story lines follows Lou, Catherine, Nick, and the bomb squad guy as they track down the criminal mastermind Justin Bieber! Does anybody else have a hard time buying Bieber as a "Jigsaw-like" master of booby-traps and bombs? While it was a fun scene in the abandoned warehouse, I thought it was disappointing that they actually show Bieber watching on his laptop. If there was any doubt as to whether or not he was guilty of these traps, that just destroys any suspense the audience might have as to who is responsible. While it does drum up a lot of hype to have Justin on the show, he really didn’t bring anything interesting to this role the first time he showed up on the premiere and that hasn’t changed since. Although I do applaud his willingness to portray such a cold-blooded killer, and also to let himself get shot a billion times! Read More...
