Technology is somewhat on our side thanks to the capable staff at CSI: CYBER. I liked the Ted Danson role, applying his traditional (though getting into all the latest Networking gadgetry) experience in forensics to the many cutting-edge threats. Pat Arquette plays the terrific director of the cyber-crime section, and uses her knowledge of behavioral psychology to understand the all-too-human personalities working for her.

The super-skilled team (which includes two supposedly “black hat” super-hackers serving their time) takes on the constantly-evolving tactics of the next generation of networking crime. They are now using their skills for justice, and often achieve it. The leading analyst can crack any device and does. The crew all works together thru many thrilling episodes, and there are personal matters that tear them away too.

This is a bit late because the episode programming was fouled up on the first copy and I was unable to view the final two episodes, which wrapped up things explored in earlier episodes.  I see this series as a warning of a world in which we are all becoming digitally connected. Wait until there are really serious problems.
