True, but you can have really different and potentially interesting chemistry. I thought Liev Schreiber's character had some real possibilities, as was mentioned in an earlier post.

Still, I will miss Gil.

It could also be said that the show was becoming repetitive and a caricature of itself. How many times can we watch Nick shine a blue light on the interior of a car, or Catherine scrutinizing a shirt. They started doing weird episodes just to be different.

Adding some new blood couldn't hurt, but losing Grissom is like Criminal Minds losing Gideon. Nobody could replace them really, because the show was built around them.

I still think the show will be better than the other CSI shows, as well as Greys, so I will keep watching.

Question for those that A) have DirecTV, B) watched tonight's episode, and C) have NY locals. I'm sure I narrowed that down so much that I eliminated everyone.

Anyway, I put this on as there was really nothing else to watch and on the channel 2 HD feed there was running commentary explaining what was going on in every scene for what I can only assume is blind people. I have never seen or heard this before. On my other CBS feeds, this commentary didn't exist.

Did anyone else have this and where did this come from all of a sudden?

I didn't see it. Or maybe I should say hear it. Maybe they're trying something like they do on Lost repetes.

In the Greensboro market both the SD and HD feeds blacked right when Nick was pursing Warrick's killer in the woods and when it came back on they were at the funeral. Did anybody else have this issue?

I talked to somebody in a neighboring TV market and they didn't have any problems. So it was my local CBS station who messed up.

I noticed that CBS joined the ranks of NBC and FOX and put up a big ol' promo for the 11th Hour or whatever it was. During the middle of the show. NOT COOL

Not just that. I was relieved that the search for his killer wasn't stretched over a 2-3 episode arc.

They telegraphed who the killer was in the first minute. I don't remember them doing that before in a CSI episode.

Thought it was a nice send-off for the character. Good seeing Jorja again.

Yeah, that was some pretty strong telegraphing showing the guy pull the trigger and all.

I wonder if they will use this opportunity to bring in a new Undersheriff that is less of a jerk.

No comments from this past episode? I thought it was great when they were removing the body from the top of the bus. Both my wife and I were cringing and squeaming at it! Glad we decided to watch it on the 100" screen instead of the 35" SD TV downstairs!

There was another scene that was pretty gross, but I can't remember what it was right now...

Also, my wife said that it looked like Jorja looked pregnant, so I had to explain the model stomach thing.

Sorry - gotta go OT for a second. What's the model stomach thing? My wife and I have always thought she was a little big in the middle for a thin person.

Oh, it was discussed years ago on a CSI thread about how lots of models tend to have a stomach that pouches out a little. Don't know why, something about the way they walk and such? She used to be a model.

I think CSI has never been better! Camera work and stories are the best they've ever been!

I dont see it that way. Seems like she considered his lack of going with her a break up by default. And her good bye video message was a double confirmation that she is happy with the break up she perceived. Therefore after viewing that message Grissom was a free agent so to speak.

Not sure what roll Fishburne is going to play. He is not replacing Grissom's position Catherine is.

Fishburne is going to be a level 1 CSI agent, according to reports I read.. Anyway he is a distinguished actor and will bring a change to the show..

I wondered about that too, can't imagine they'd bump the female to put another male in the lead.

BTW, maybe it's just me, but the character linkage in this ep was rather complex for my feeble mind. When they were running all the possible links on that screen I got lost as to who's who and who's done what. Saved this ep to re-watch just before part 2 airs.
