CSI: Crime Scene Investigation tries something new.
The November 6 episode of CSI, "Leave Out All the Rest", will do something that has never been done before. CBS and Warner Brothers have worked out a deal with the band Linkin Park to feature the fifth single from their album Minutes to Midnight in the episode. What makes the deal unique is that this will mark the first time a television series has based the entire score of an episode around a single, currently released rock song.
The episode is named after the song, "Leave Out All the Rest", and the video can be found on the official YouTube channel here or watched below. The song will be played at the beginning and end of the episode. "Elements of the song are used throughout the episode to underline and score the building story of Gil Grissom [William Petersen] and his unresolved love for Sara Sidle [Jorja Fox] who recently left the crime lab," band member Mike Shinoda explained on his blog.
"Leave Out All the Rest" also marks the return of Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke) to CSI. The character was last seen in "The Good, the Bad and the Dominatrix" during the show's seventh season. The official CBS press release for "Leave Out all the Rest" states, "When the CSI team investigates a case involving the world of domination, Grissom pays a visit to Lady Heather to help find some answers."
The original news is from The Linkin Park Association and Mike Shinoda's blog. The official press release for "Leave Out All the Rest" can be read at the Futon Critic. Thanks to speed_cochrane from TalkCSI for the heads up. The video for "Leave Out All the Rest" can be watched below, courtesy of the official Linkin Park channel on YouTube.
