    Love Ted Dansen on CSI and hope it keeps going. And Ted has such a young looking face and a spectacular head of great hair, if he’d only not let it go so totally gray, since gray hair adds 20 years to a man. But he has the greatest hair I’ve seen on a man yet. His part in CSI is a good one and II hope it keeps going..It’s a good fit.

    I have watched this show since the beginning, and I have to say it is still my No. 1 favorite show. It would be a shame to cancel such an awesome and intriguing show. Although, it has been sad to watch some original cast members exit the show, the new cast members don’t disappoint. I would love to see the show continue for a couple of more seasons.
    I do have to say, I was really disappointed when I read that CSI: Miami was cancelled. Then, to hear that CSI: New York was cancelled, was even more disappointing. I have been such a fan of all of the CSI shows, that its depressing to see the both shows get cancelled in one season.
