He's horrible, can't act his lines corny, flat and boring, He dresses like a bum, and has NO chemistry nor connection with the team..What was CBS thinking.. he's going to take the show to it's death..

LOL,i'm glad i am not the only one that feels that way,
i thought maybe i was being a wee bit hard on Ted,so i watched the show the next time it came on, just to make sure my feelings were real and ya, Ted Danson really does suck.
Please!!! send Mr.Danson over to CSI Miami and give us CSI fans an actor that has some life in them, not one that is made out of cardboard.

Some fans on other sites are saying "how great he is" on what planet? Besides being so un-attractive he's just plain "BORING".. the worst character ever on CSI, how embarrassing and insulting, to the last two predecessors.. especially LF...

OMG.. Please send Ted to CSI-Miami..It's true...He's going to kill CBS with his acting.No talent...it seems he controls the whole team. I see no TEAMWORK in the episides anymore. Who wrote the scripts anyways? HORRIBLE!!!

LOL, send him to Miami, funny, David Caruso is pretty bad but this guy is even worse. At least Horatio is beliveable as a CSI. He just seems to be in the way, and it's embarassing to all involved. LF as Langston was so believeable and perfect in his role. They should have never let him go~

Linda...
I disagreed w/you about LF "Langston". I also did not like him as much. Maybe I don't think both LF and Ted have the CSI look. Now my husband and I only looking forward for NCIS and CSI:N.Y.

Maybe this will be the last season. The show has become unwatchable, and not JUST because of Ted Danson.

To each one's own on who they like and don't like. I found that LF as Ray had incredible range and how he bonded with the team was sweet and charming. They embraced him as one of their own and he them. The episodes were all fantastic due to his powerful presence. I do like the episodes this season and can get by with the "old and ugly" of this new guy but not the dreadful awful acting. He has a flat, monotone voice, goofy presentation and and is an embarrassement to the show. I wished they'd contact LF and beg him to return. I don't care for DC as Horatio but at least he's beliveable as a CSI, and Gary/Mac is super..

How the devil did this ever happen? CBS must have a death wish for CSI. Pun intended!
