Five is the new Channel 4

Last night Five had the start of the new series of CSI and later Boomtown. The former is tried and tested, and very interesting, with its Miami spinoff this weekend. From the first episode of the latter, I couldn’t say. The cast is very strong, but whether the complex narative structure can be kept up week after week without being obviously strained is a tougher call. At the moment it’s future is not completely certain, although NBC say that they’re getting behind it.
Meanwhile C4 is finally airing old episodes of NYPD Blue which is great. 11.35pm is not great.
