The notorious and ultra-elusive serial killer dubbed {much to the displeasure of Grissom} β€œThe Strip Strangler” is eventually tracked down by the CSI MΓ¦stro, despite the β€œhelp” of the FBI. In this powerful scene, Gil confronts one Syd Booth Goggle (once considered a minor irritant, at best…), who turns out to be the deadly predator. A risky venture: no backup, and close quarters.

The great Doug Hutchison.

Slightly off-kilter character actor Doug Hutchison was THE *perfect* choice to play CSI Nick Stokes’s rather creepy antagonist in this episode of CSI, season 2, episode 19.

Actor Matt O’Toole gives a remarkable, bravura, iconic performance as serial killer Paul Millander, invoking dread, menace, yet some sympathy (of a sort…) as well. Highly intelligent, and courteous, with a traumatic youth-hood, to put it mildly, Millander nonetheless is that most threatening of characters; always he seems to have the advantage.

Brilliant performances—both very low-key, but extremely effective—by Ned Beatty and Taylor Nichols, which really get across what a sociopath is: for one thing, they generally don’t stand out. And, of course, there are other qualities….
