  • The characters are sufficiently diverse, and quirky enough to present an interesting rag tag team of cops and scientists, and actors like Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes bring enough acting skills to please even the most discriminating viewer

      Every pilot episode of a tv show should do three things: introduce the characters and the plot, set the tone for the series, and draw the viewer’s attention. ‘Blink’ achieves all three easily.

      The plot is, of course, similar to all the other procedurals out there, and as a part


      of the popular CSI franchise, I would not expect anything different.

      The characters are sufficiently diverse, and quirky enough to present an interesting rag tag team of cops and scientists, and actors like Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes bring enough acting skills to please even the most discriminating viewer.

      What ...


      • is special about the episode, however, is how well it fits within both the post-9/11 reality of NY, and the overall arc of the season - grief, loss, and mourning.

        And, ultimately, moving on, and coping with the loss.

        The grimness of the plot is accentuated by the colors and

        camerawork, the New York of the show is grim, gray, and blue, with almost a Gotham City feel to it, the gothic style of the morgue, dimmed lights and twilight setting of most scenes.

        We’re not in neon Las Vegas or sunny Miami anymore, this city is different and unique.

        Kind of like the show.
