CSI Finally Caught Elizabeth Shue!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 22nd, 2011

They’ve been trying to catch her for years, and were finally successful. CBS’ hit crime drama CSI has gained a new female lead after the departure of Marg Helgenberger (who played the female lead Catherine Willows opposite Ted Danson.)

Elizabeth Shue, an Oscar nominee for Leaving Las Vegas (1995), will play an embittered CSI agent fresh from anger management courses, reportedly fired by D.B. Russell (Danson) some time before. She will arrive on February 15th and keep up a regular spot. This is Shue’s first major TV role since Call to Glory, though she also had a two-episode stint on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

CSI is now in its twelfth season and still holding terrific numbers. Helgenberger started out in Season One, and her character will continue to appear in guest roles. The show will air on Wednesdays this season at 10 PM.

Movie Quotes

Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-aught three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei, was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows?" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei? Or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all sixty of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique.
The Bride:
And what, pray tell, is the five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique?
Quite simply, the deadliest blow in all of martial arts. He hits you with his fingertips at five different pressure points on your body. And then he lets you walk away. But after you've taken five steps, your heart explodes inside your body, and you fall to the floor, dead.
