CSI “Unleashed” Review

CSI "Unleashed", Season 11 Episode 19 – In the interest of full-disclosure, I actually watched "127 Hours" earlier on tonight, so I thought I would be able to handle whatever gruesome depravity CSI threw at me. However, I was not prepared for one of the first scenes of "Unleashed". I’ve normally got a pretty strong stomach for violence on TV shows and movies (Hey, I made it through "127 Hours", right?) but I’ve got a weakness for babies. Anything having to do with childbearing, especially cutting into pregnant people’s stomachs, I can not handle. Reaching in to a dead girl’s stomach to resurrect her dying fetus is one of the darkest things I’ve seen on CSI, so I guess having the guts to show that scene on TV is commendable. Plus I’m all about Dr. Al being in the field more often! That guy’s pretty awesome!

Long-time CSI fans got another scene with Lady Heather, although she now goes by Dr. Kessler. This is Melinda Clarke’s sixth turn as Lady Heather/Dr. Kessler on CSI, her five previous appearances coming in ’01, ’03, ’06, ’07, and ’08. This is yet another example this season of CSI bringing back recurring characters to the show. I’ve mentioned on previous episode reviews of this season how much I enjoy this trend of bringing back old characters, and I hope CSI continues to do this for the rest of the season and into next.
