‘CSI’ Episode Guide (Aug. 8): Murdered Woman Has Ties to a Band

“Long Road Home” (08/07/14) — The CSIs investigate the murder of a rock and roll groupie and the disappearance of a prostitute that both have ties to a mysterious band, on a rebroadcast of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” on a special night and time, Friday, August 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

KISS lead singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Gene Simmons guest stars as himself (repeat; Originally broadcast 3/12/14).

“CSI” is a fast-paced drama about a team of forensic investigators trained to solve crimes by examining the evidence. They are on the case 24/7, scouring the scene, collecting irrefutable evidence and finding the missing pieces that will solve the mystery. D.B. Russell, the CSI supervisor for the grave shift, is a family man and scientist, but not a nerd. Son of hippie parents, he’s a left-coast Sherlock Holmes who devours crime novels and looks at every crime scene as if it were a story waiting to be told.

The team’s other members include CSI Julie Finlay, a blood spatter expert who always speaks her mind, regardless of the consequences; Nick Stokes, the conscience of the team, often driven by his emotional connection to the victim to always get the job done; Sara Sidle, aka “Mrs. Grissom,” relentless in her pursuit of criminals and the moral compass of the team; Greg Sanders, once an off-beat tech analyst and now an experienced and intuitive crime solver; and Morgan Brody, an exile from the Los Angeles Crime Lab and the daughter of Undersheriff Ecklie.

She’s a natural-born investigator who still has a lot to learn about politics and family. The CSI team members also work closely with Captain Jim Brass, a seasoned detective and protector of CSI, sometimes to a fault; Dr. Albert Robbins, the ever-professional medical examiner; his wise-cracking assistant, David Phillips; and the CSI Lab Technicians: David Hodges, a tech of many talents who often rubs people the wrong way, but never fails to deliver, and Henry Andrews, the DNA specialist, who always cracks the code.

“CSI” stars Ted Danson (D.B. Russell), Elisabeth Shue (Julie Finlay), George Eads (Nick Stokes), Paul Guilfoyle (Captain Jim Brass), Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders), Robert David Hall (Dr. Robbins), David Berman (David Phillips), Wallace Langham (David Hodges), Elisabeth Harnois (Morgan Brody), and Jon Wellner (Henry Andrews)
