'Shane' And 'Messer' Make It Memorable
16 October 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

At first I thought, "What's the big deal?" Usually, the opener is a bit shocking, but this nothing seemed out of the ordinary.....until the criminal they just caught was one of the CSI guys: "Sheldon Hawkes" (Hill Harper). Well, you know they've got the wrong guy. He just happened to be wearing the same green hood the "perp" was wearing, was the same skin color and had a big wad of cash on him. How is Sheldon going to get out of this mess, with his crew's help, of course, remains to be seen. Somebody set him up, big-time.

The cool part of that story is that the man who did this was just in an episode a few weeks ago and escaped out of custody. It's our buddy "Shane Casey," played by that "Termintor 2" punk kid, Edward Furlong (who is now 30 years of age.)

A secondary story involves a murder at a porno shop on 42nd Street called "Peepin' Tom's." It's okay, but the other story totally dominates to the point where this one is superfluous, although the two stories connect. One note: the captain in this episode is an idiot and the type of guy Hollywood likes to show in that position, someone that would not see in real life. Thankfully, we only have two short scenes with him.

The ending was excellent, very suspenseful and featured excellent acting by Furlong and Camine Giiovinazzo ("Danny Messer"). It helped make this an excellent episode, start-to-finish.
