Mom watches this (she's CBS demographics).

She thought the show wouldn't last after they ditched the action guy from the first three seasons, George Eads, who was also one of the CSI cast members.

The network's new pickups for the 2021-22 season include CSI: Vegas, FBI spinoff FBI: International and single-camera comedy Ghosts, with a new Hawaii-set NCIS also expected to get a green light.

So they learned their lesson?

Mom was still on? I caught a few episodes while while channel surfing and lingered a bit because I like Allison Janet in everything. I didn't think the premise would hold for this long.

If by "reboot" you mean "shameless ripoff that jettisoned everything interesting about the concept or the character," then yes, it was a reboot. Watch the first two seasons of the original show, ignore the rest. Or, if you're a Teri Hatcher fan, watch the episodes where she guest stars (before she hit the big time).

That should be interesting.
"OK, the housekeeper found the dead body in room 438. No signs of trauma. Let's turn on the blacklights to see what we can find."
"Good god! Don't do it!"

"Those...don't...look like blood splatters..do they?"

Yeah. We watched it. When perusing the DVR menu, it was always a show we could put on while I could do chart reviews. Was able to keep up without having to pay full attention. It was good for the light entertainment it was.

One thing I'll give props to: they included a little person in the cast, made her an authority figure, shot her so she didn't look out of place, and there were no size jokes at her expense. Really treated the character and actress respectfully.

Maybe they could shop it to the CW, but the cast is too old and there's far too much action

Maybe he can use the free time to do a sequel to Monster Trucks- the movie that should have been wayyyy worse than it was.
