TV tonight: ‘CSI’ wraps up 13th season with guest star Ozzy Osbourne

WASHINGTON, May 15, 2013 —CBS is pulling out all the stops on the season finale of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.” Tonight’s episode includes guest stars Eric Roberts, James Callis, Tim Matheson, Annabella Sciorra and Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Thomas D. Clufetos Jr., and Geezer Burler as themselves.
At first glance it’s hard to find a common thread between “CSI” and “Black Sabbath,” but with a bit of imagination it’s possible. Before “CSI” hit the airwaves back in 2000, the typical procedural police drama focused very little on forensic evidence in pursuit of the bad guys.
Not only did “CSI” pioneer the forensic approach to TV crime solving, it changed forever the way we look at our system of justice. And prior to the arrival of bands like “Black Sabbath” on the music scene, “heavy metal” was a term confined to laboratories and machine shops.
Although Ozzy Osbourne’s past includes a history of excess and decadence, it’s hard to imagine the heavy metal scene without him. Who knew that way back in 1968 when “Black Sabbath” was formed they would change the landscape of popular music forever?
Recognized as pioneers of the heavy metal movement, “Black Sabbath” is ranked by MTV as the “Greatest Metal Band” of all time.
Since “Black Sabbath” pioneered heavy metal music and CSI pioneered the modern day forensic police drama, it seems somehow fitting that the two combine their efforts tonight in the 13th season finale of “CSI” tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS.
They had me at Ozzy Osbourne, but who knows? We may even get to see the “Prince of Darkness” bite off the head of another bat. Either way, it should be an episode worth watching.
