    I thought I'd open a new thread since the cast and crew are officially filming season 2!

    No information yet about storylines and whatnot, or how DB Russell will fit into the team. Still, it looks like everyone is having fun. :)

    Here's the official synopsis for the season premiere, which gives a hint about DB's role in DC:

    "Next Generation Forensics"? That makes it sound like DB will be working in a high tech version of the traditional CSI lab. Hmm...

    It should be interesting to see how everything fits together, and how the whole show is tweaked for season two. I enjoyed the first season, but it could definitely improve, and I'd like to see more old school CSI work mixed in with the cyber stuff. I'm sure the show's critics would like to see more 'cyber' accuracy as well, although there was a lot more accuracy in season one than I think a lot of people give the show credit for. There's always going to be a certain degree of poetic license involved when telling stories for TV, after all. Gotta make it entertaining! Still, a bit more 'realism' can't hurt and might help. It's bad enough that Cyber is stuck in the Sunday night death slot for season two after an admittedly lackluster first season... :(

    I'll admit I didn't watch the first season. I'm kinda interested in what a "physical" scientist like DB is going to be able to do in the "cyber" science world - but not enough to watch it. :(
    In the world of technology things are always evolving - to be outdated it takes a month or less!

    They say this show is modeled after the "real" FBI Cyber Crimes Division. Well, the real FBI Cyber Crimes Division is a bunch of geeky (I say that lovingly as when it comes to computers I'm a geek too!:cool:) computer analyst tracking computer hacks to, usually, country of origin (you can thank "60 Minutes" for that knowledge). If they get into more old school forensics wouldn't it be taking away from the reality that they say the show is based on and making it into "just another CSI"?

    Not necessarily, I don't think. There were a few things in season one that were old school forensics, like fingerprints and whatnot--I think if they did it right, they could create more of a happy medium between uber high tech and old school CSI work. Of course, there have been plenty of high tech forensics on the other CSI shows, especially in more recent years. As long as the crime and the overall investigation is predominately cyber-based, it should fit the criteria...

    I dunno, I guess we'll see! :)

    Most episodes in fall will air in 11:00 hour because of football. It's a dead show and its not going to last so I guess its right it doesn't have a forum here but its still weird and strange. It's a comment on the show. "We don't it being discussed". Or this forum is closing after the csi finale airs.

    Why do you say it doesn't have a forum here to discuss it? o_O Where did you just post your message at? :rolleyes: I'm assuming English isn't your first language, because you must be losing something in the translation. This is a forum to discuss the CSI shows, as well as other shows, and other topics.

    I think Season 2 could be an improvement over Season if they have retooled it right. There were several good episodes in S1 even though I would not have been sad if it didn't last past the first season. This will definitely be make or break for the CSI franchise though.

    Yeah, the show has a lot of potential, and I really hope it finds its footing in season two. I enjoyed season one, but my personal enjoyment isn't going to keep it on the air. ;)

    Yeah, I just hate that they've stuck it on Sunday nights at 10. It was bad enough for CSI, and they had years worth of fan loyalty that kept a decent number of people tuning in despite the crappy timeslot (myself included, haha). I want to be proven wrong, but I don't see Cyber doing well with that schedule. I guess I just have to hope there's enough interest after football is over, since they're doing a full 22 episode season. (And that does seem to show that CBS has some confidence in the series, at least.) I don't know, it's all so unsure right now. I can't imagine that they'd shift it to a better timeslot midway through the season, but it's nice to think about. :p

    And I love Ted (and DB), but I think if a different character from CSI (especially someone from the original cast) was making the transition, it would bring more crossover viewers to the spinoff. Still, I'm eager to see how he fits into the team, and how much of that oldschool CSI feeling comes with him...

    I rather liked Cyber. It was a refreshing show that kept you guessing and thinking, a welcome break from so many reality shows. I am happy that it got renewed, but the timeslot is horrid. What was wrong with mid-week?

    Same reason "CSI" moved to Sunday. The ratings sucked! "CSI: Cyber" couldn't keep the "Criminal Minds" viewers any better than "CSI" did. Feel lucky - "Stalker" didn't really do all that much worse in that timeslot and it got cancelled.

    I'm kind of surprised that they renewed it, ordered a full 22 episodes...and stuck it in a crappy timeslot. I'm still not sure what the reasoning was. The numbers eroded over the course of the season, and I can't imagine they'll miraculously improve for season 2, especially with the timeslot stacked against it. Did they renew it and give it a big episode order because it was guaranteed for syndication? I have no idea how those decisions are made. They seem to have some confidence in the show, but I'm not sure it'll be able to deliver, based on the ratings from season one. I won't be surprised if they end up cutting the episode order like they did with CSI last season.

    (I suppose there's some logic to pairing Cyber with Madam Secretary and The Good Wife, considering they're all headlined by well-known, slightly older women and might draw some of the same viewers for that reason--but I don't see the show fitting with the rest of them thematically, not any more than CSI did.)

    Still, I do plan to enjoy it, in any case. I'm curious about the changes they've got in store for season two, and learning more about the characters. The thing with Krumitz's sister has the potential to cause him a lot of ongoing angst (which can lead to interesting character development). I think we're finally going to learn more about Raven. (I thought that was going to happen in season one, but it never did, and she wasn't in every episode--of course, the production/airing orders were completely different, I'm shocked there weren't a lot of continuity issues, although this isn't related to a single storyline. Anyway, I'm rambling lol...) They've got Nelson wearing more casual clothes, but does that indicate him being more comfortable around the rest of the team? Etc etc etc. And I'm still super interested to see how DB fits into the mix.

    CSI: CYBER

    CSI: CYBER stars Academy Award, Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Patricia Arquette in a drama inspired by the advanced technological work of real-life Cyber Psychologist Mary Aiken. Special Agent Avery Ryan heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world. She knows firsthand how today's technology allows people to hide in the shadows of the Internet and commit serious crimes of global proportion. Working with Ryan is the new Director of Next Generation Forensics, D.B. Russell, a civilian specialist who has transferred from Las Vegas to combine his vast knowledge of traditional forensics with cutting-edge advancements to help hunt down the most dangerous cyber criminals. Also on the team are FBI Agent Elijah Mundo, a forensic expert who is ex-military, a self-proclaimed action junkie and Avery's confidant; Daniel Krumitz, an introverted tech genius with a quick wit; Brody Nelson, a former black hat hacker who chose to work for the FBI over a life of cyber-crime; and Raven Ramirez, a tech who is an expert in social media, cyber trends and international relations. While other agents search for criminals in dark homes and alleys, Ryan and her team search the "dark net," a place deep in the bowels of the Web where criminals are anonymous, money is untraceable and where everything is for sale with just a keystroke.

    I think CBS wants syndication of series so they keep it. And in last season they will do a crossover as pilot to another series. Cyber have some great moments in realization but it's not enough.
    BTW: some saw a single promo for season premiere?
