No, this is not about a horse race. It's about Laurence Fishburne's character doing the first-ever triple crossover on "CSI"!
The big, interconnected storyline starts tonight (!) at 10 PM on "CSI: Miami," continues into "CSI: New York" (10 PM Wednesday) and wraps up in the standard "CSI" (9 PM Thursday).
Here's the plot breakdown, care of USA Today: "The three shows unite this week via a nationwide human-trafficking case in which everything from prostitutes to corpses is transported, and sometimes disposed of, along the interstate highway system.
Langston travels to '(CSI:) Miami,' where he teams up with (Horatio) Caine (David Caruso) after the discovery of the leg of a girl who went missing in Vegas a week earlier. They solve one case, only to find another when a woman interviewed in Miami turns up in a big rig in New York.
That takes Langston to '(CSI:) NY,' where he and Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) find a trucking ring specializing in human cargo and organ harvesting. Langston returns to Nevada to search for a hostage taken as part of the trafficking operation."
FYI Fishburne himself came up with the "triple crown" quote in this USA Today article, where you can read the rest.
A word of warning to my readers: Given my night schedule/obligations this week on two of those nights, I seriously doubt I'll be able to blog it/review it. (I'm going to the Ace Frehley show Wednesday night at The House of Blues [for which I interviewed my favorite member of KISS for this Reflector entertainment feature] — I'm pumped! If you want outtakes from that same one-on-one Oct. 21 telephone interview I did with my man Ace, follow this link to my comic book blog, "Cary's Comics Craze." Readers invited. Comments urged.)
Don't panic, though; my tight schedule means it's up to you to write your reviews and thoughts on CSI's "triple crown" on this Web site! Don't let the new format scare you, sign up and type away! Two "rules" here at CCC: 1) No spoilers — or at least warn readers ahead of time. 2) Have fun!
