CSI: NY “Indelible” Review

CSI: NY "Indelible", Season 8 Episode 1 – CSI: NY returned tonight with "Indelible", a very moving and respectful dedication to the tenth anniversary of 9/11. In a week full of other TV shows making nods to 9/11, including Raising Hope making a controversial 9/11 joke and Person of Interest claiming the attacks were the impetus for the government’s increased monitoring measures, we’ve certainly been hearing a lot about 9/11 recently.
