Almost worth a feature film
3 June 2019 | by velijnSee all my reviews

The ppwer of CSI Las Vegas is, that in between the pretty standard weekly murder/investigation/solution episodes a single story can pop out, so powerful that it will blow you out of your small screen lethargy. The average of 8.9 shows that many people agreed about the power of a real good story, especially if it is so well told and acted, that I can't even hint about the plot or the twists in it, but every year when I'm cobbling together a kind of bing-weekend, this one still tops the list. If you have seen it, no need for expatiation. If you haven't, be in for a pretty serious surprise. With the emphasis on serious.

And, yes, it's one of the first appearances of Dakota Fanning on the small screen. What a performance it was!
