Guest Stars:


  • The whole CSI team is on the case when a wealthy man and his beautiful wife are shot execution-style at their house in a ritzy gated community. (December 16, 2003 - CSI Files)

  • TV Guide: "Providing a glimpse into the personal lives of the CSIs is always tricky. If it's overdone (as with Grissom's hearing loss), it's annoying and distracts from the drama. But if measured out judiciously (like Warrick's gambling addiction), the personal touches add intrigue. Thankfully, tonight's surprising revelations about Catherine (that hefty check her dad gave her comes into play) and Sara offer the right amount of gossipy backdrop to a double homicide investigation involving a Vegas club owner and his ex-porn-actress wife who are gunned down outside of their plush estate." (February 16, 2004 - CSI Files)
