CSI Bosses on 300 Episodes of Murder and the Legacy of Gil Grissom
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Wednesday's episode of CSI marks the CBS procedural's 300th episode, and no matter how you slice it, that's a lot of murder. CSI's success is particularly remarkable when you consider that the show's Miami- and New York-based spin-offs have both come and gone while the original trucks on. NY, I figured the last one standing would still be the mothership, Mendelsohn says. Realizing the show would reach the milestone this season, executive producer Don McGill says they wanted this entire season in general, and the 300th episode in particular, to look back at the show's history. Marg Helgenberger returning to CSI for 300th episode The case hits particularly close to home for Sara (Jorja Fox). The case involves a reclusive casino mogul (guest star Jason Priestley) who is suspected in a crime eerily similar to the case from 14 years ago. In addition to seeing Sara and Greg (Eric Szmanda) in circa 2000 looks, the episode also welcomes back original cast member Marg Helgenberger as C ...

In the season's 10th episode, Shue's Finlay will be at the center of another wild adventure when she, Sara (Jorja Fox) and Morgan (Elisabeth Harnois) head out for what executive producer Carol Mendelsohn calls "a fun spa weekend that turns tense, scary and violent."

CSI Welcomes Back Marg Helgenberger For 300th Episode
Boom Tron - over 3 years
CSI has been around so long that it now has the cumbersome task of doing something in celebration of reaching the milestone of 300 episodes. That’s a heck of a lot. That is easily hundreds of fictional people who have died over the years. But I don’t want to talk about the deceased. My interest lies in the living, specifically with former CSI star Marg Helgenberger, who will be returning to help make this a celebration to remember. Helgenberger used to portray Catherine Willows until she left CSI partway through Season 12. Now she’s coming back for Season 14 and TVLine confirmed she would still be playing Willows and will have play a sizable role in the latest murder investigation. Executive producer Don McGill expressed his enthusiasm for Helgenberger’s return by saying, “she’s such an important part of the history of CSI.” And history will play a big part in Episode 300. The milestone episode will center on a fictional cold case that will take the characters back to the very begi ...

Lions Rescued From Illegal Bolivian Circuses In New Documentary
Huffington Post - over 3 years
From Mother Nature Network's Laura Moss: An undercover investigation by Animal Defenders International or ADI led to a 2009 ban on circus animals in Bolivia. The circuses were given a year to comply with the law, but many kept their animals, including a number of lions, caged in deplorable conditions. In 2010, with the aid of Bolivian wildlife officials, ADI stepped in. “Lion Ark” follows ADI’s team as they track down eight illegal circuses, face off against angry circus owners and race against time to transport 25 lions to a Colorado animal sanctuary. The movie opens in the middle of a confrontation between rescuers and a knife-wielding circus owner, and through a series of interviews and flashbacks, viewers learn how ADI located the illegal circus in a remote Bolivian town. Over the course of the film, rescuers track down filthy, starving lions — some living eight to a cage — and transport them 5,000 miles to freedom. Although the film features appearances by Bo ...

CSI star Jorja Fox films circus animal PSA for ADI
The Dish Is Veg - almost 5 years
I always felt uneasy about circuses. Yes, they feature tricks of all kinds that are entertaining for the audience, but at what expense? The humans who participate in the circus choose to be there, but the animals are taken from their homes and brought to provide more entertainment for the audience. After watching and reading Water for Elephants, I was exposed to the greed and business-driven minds of circus leaders, but I thought it was only part of the fiction. Yet, when I watched actress Jorja Fox’s video informing the public about the story of a young elephant named Krissy who taken from her African home at the age of two and transferred to circus life, I realized it was more than a tall tale. The video includes footage of Krissy being beaten with a bullhook and kept in chains. I had never seen a bullhook before watching Water For Elephants, but it is a hook attached to a long handle used to strike elephants to train them for shows. Robert Pattinson’s character in the movie i ...
