No matter what role he plays, I still have him type-casted in my head as Sam. I grew up watching Cheers, over and over and over.
I am catching up with the Bored to Death series and I still just look at him as an aging bartender.


While I've seen every episode of Cheers over and over (and still watch it even today occasionally) every time I see Ted Danson, I can not help but think "3 Men and a Baby". While I am going to be willing and give him a chance, I'm not sure if I can get the idea of out my head that He, Nick, & Brass will break out and sing "Good Night Sweetheart" anytime they get together.

Thought I'd revive this thread and see what people think of Ted Danson on CSI now that we're a few episodes into the season.

We're thoroughly enjoying him. Always like him as an actor, and his character is really interesting. It works much better than Lawrence Fishburne's character did. DB comes in as an established boss, and he's taken charge from the get go (in his own unique way). We're enjoying this season of CSI much more than we did the previous 2 - maybe even as much as we have any of the previous seasons of CSI.

I will have to say I was wrong about Ted .He is way better than Fishburn on the show . Ted is doing a great job .

Really enjoying it.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Took a couple episodes to shake his role on "Bored to Death" which was not very far from all of his other roles.
But I am adjusting.

So far his character is rather plain.

For the record, are the writers brains on long a holiday or something?

OK, my niece likes the young man who play's Danson's son on this show. The kid is a basketball player in college. My niece thinks he's cute. Of course, this is the same niece who's obsessed with all things Justin Bieber, which allowed me to tease her when Bieber's character got shot and killed on CSI last year. :D

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

IMHO, I think that is part of his charm.

I agree. He's quirky, and strange, and plain and it all makes him really likable.
