B I thought it was good, but nothing spectacular. I really enjoy the episodes where the whole team works one case though. It seems to give everyone a little more time, instead of one or two people always getting hosed by the priority given to the "A" story. This was nice for a season opener in that everyone got a little time. Not loving the new opening credits. It was time for an update and I'm sure they'll grow on me, but Carmine's smile in the old opening credits is the stuff legends are made of. Sad to see that go and the new musical arrangement sounds strange. * Mac: There was a nice little build-up here. What's up with this 3:33 am caller? But there seems to be something more that's bothering Mac as well. I like this. There's some depth and I'm looking forward to finding out what's going on with Mac. * Stella: I enjoyed the interaction between Stella and Mac. The way she's able to read him lends a nice quality to their relationship. But I hate the convenience of the writing device used where the character is sent back to somewhere she's already been. NYC is one big ass city with a lot of homicides. What are the odds that the same crime scene investigator will be assigned to the same location twice within a year, and then conveniently watch pieces fall into place? * Lindsay: Like the new, edgier 'do. She's been sexed up a little bit and it works for her. The character doesn't grate on my nerves too badly when used in light situations that Anna's limited range can accommodate. * Danny: The opening bit felt weird. The tone just didn't sound like Danny. Perhaps that could be attributed to Carmine dangling from the Statue of Liberty all day. In the beginning when Danny and Lindsay were doing their little video conferencing thing, i was pleased to note that when Lindsay said good-bye, Danny simply shut the laptop and didn't respond. It wasn't done rudely, but I was relieved to see we weren't subjected to any ridiculous, "No, you say good-bye first," ... "No, you." I liked the line where Danny wanted to know where the jizz goes in the spray-on condom. My question - how the hell do you get that thing off, and what if you miss a spot? I was also relieved to see the intimate, sympathetic dialogue between Danny and Nova Kent. I was afraid the fact that Danny is in a relationship now might alter his interaction with other women. * Adam - I really enjoyed the competitive thing he's got going on with Kendall. She's hot and they've got a fun rapport. Looking forward to more screen time for AJ this season. * Flack - Most notable moment - "Yeah, I like to do a little sight-seeing after murder." He gets some great lines.
