Don't quote me on this, but I believe that Elizabeth Shue is standing behind Patricia Arquette when Avery Ryan guest starred in an episode of CSI as a way of setting up the spinoff series CSI: Cyber.

THE RETURN OF CSI
I don't normally get excited about the fall season of the police procedure television series CSI. It once had two spinoff shows entitled CSI: Miami and CSI: New York while CSI itself was set in Las Vegas, Nevada. It's probably safe to assume that all three television shows were either filmed on location in either Los Angeles, California pretending to be either Miami, New York City or Las Vegas or filmed on location in Vancouver, Canada pretending to be the United States of America. Well, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York has been canceled. CSI: Cyber has it's season premier this Autumn. Set in Washington D.C. (But still filmed either in Los Angeles, California or Vancouver, Canada), it the first CSI show to feature a female making all the crucial discoveries, having all the crucial confrontations and staging all the rescues. Starring Patricia Arquette as Avery Ryan, Special Agent in Charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, it mostly avoids forensic evidence gathering to focus mostly on crimes involving computers and computer hacking. Since I'm a huge fan of Patricia Arquette, it should be interesting to see if the fourth CSI franchise television show will survive the test of time or if it will suffer an early demise.
