Even though the line about the rat was funny (He's on to us), I really didn't care to see that. It's bad enough this show is so over the top disgusting but that rat slithering out of that corpse like the alien was too much.

No..... that was one of the parts of the show . It was great in slo mo! Especially since they made it look like the rat had his hind claws hooked up in some entrails that came streaming out behind him .

My wife was asking if Jorja Fox was pregnant as well. I told her it may just be because she was a model and from what I remember hearing on older CSI threads, that is normal for models. Whatever that means.

I also though that Sheeri Rappaport who plays Mandy Webster, the "Lab Rat" with the glasses is really cute.

IMHO Jorja Fox looks pregnant only if you think anyone who's over a size 2 looks fat.

I don't think I've enjoyed a CSI episode more than last night's. This may be best season that CSI has had.

I've enjoyed it as well, especially if they wrap up the miniature serial killer plotline intelligently. In contrast, the 2 other CSIs have been noticeably bad this season, IMO.

Last night ep was delightfully hilarious, after the night that poor guy had, and he finally sits down by the pool and then the cigarette smoke billowed out of the two holes in his neck, I thought I was going to bust a gut I was laughing so hard.

I have to agree. That was a damn good episode.. Those two country hicks really had me laughing throughout the episode(those voices).. I especially loved when those two were being questioned by Captain Brass, and every time he thought he had them for the crime.. his cell phone would start vibrating.

A very interesting episode.

I have enjoyed this season. Some interesting shows with lots of variety.

BTW, on last night's show, when they were going into the neighbor's apartment to the Dell kid to find the killer, I just knew it was going to be a "Silence of the lambs" type thing where they are knocking on the door, the killer turns and looks and when she opens the door, it is a delivery person and the cops are at the wrong location.

Horrible way to end a season as well! Grissom tells everyone that "She wants to take from me what I love the most" and everyone is putting two-and-two together figuring out that Grissom and Sara are an "item" and Sara trapped the way she was...

I guess we have to wait until September or October for the first show of next season.

The reason it ended the way ti did was because Jorja is once again trying to hold out for more money. In fact the producers were so pissed off at her she originally was slated to die in the finale. So she refused to show up for filming on the scene, and they had to do it a diffferent way. So they left it to be ambiguous whether she would live or die.

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

CSI has pretty much been blah the entire season. CSI NY has probably been more compelling in the last few weeks. CIS Miami can't progress beyond the horrible acting and CSI NY may have some better actors but most episodes are just bland.

Great usage of tilt-shift (or fake tilt-shift) lenses in the finale. It made the Strip look like a miniature.

Yes that was great! It was like the whole town was under the miniature killer's magnifying glass.

That was pretty cool. The photography in general for this "miniature" plotline has been interesting.

I don't know. I think this season of the original has been pretty good overall. The miniature killer thread has been entertaining and last night I actually got a couple creep moments from it. I quit watching Miami after the first season as it was just too much for me to hack. I have watched NY very sporadically until this season when I've seen most of them. It seems to have picked up quite a bit since the early days and I find it to be pretty decent now. Except for poor Claire Forlani as the medical examiner. I don't know if it's just the writing or her in the role but it just doesn't work for me.

I thought they did it as a miniature, I didn't realize they messed with the lenses and such to just make it look like that....

I wasn't watching in HD, so I didn't get the high-res version to see it with.

The preview that keeps getting shown about tonight's episode, Who is singing the song there? Is it Kate Bush? Very ethereal tune, hypnoic. I'd love to get the album!

I had some real problems with the season opener. Sara was injured, getting dehydrated and they knew which direction she went in and they couldn't find her after only 15 hours? she must be moving like the wind. Speaking of wind, I've only been to LV a few times, but with all that rain and flooding would the desert be so dry in a few hours that the wind was blowing up dust clouds?

I don't know if Jorga will stick around for the whole season, I've heard reports she wont, but at least for once they didn't kill a character off who might be leaving.

"For once"? They haven't lost a character in the history of the series. (Except the throwaway tech in the pilot.)

If you watch season 1 (which is currently being shown on the Spike TV reruns, you'll see the entire main cast there. No one has been added. No one has been "fired" or "transferred" or killed. The only real change is that Greg went from the lab to the field (he was in the lab as early as the second episode ever). Some minor characters have been added (Hodges, the other lab techs, Sofia Curtis), but even they have been there a while (the coroner came aboard in the middle of season 1; Hodges has been there since season 3, Curtis from season 5).

I felt the same way there were so many lose ends I picked up that they could have easily found her. I mean they knew she was only 30 miles away in the West end Direction why not just go out and look cant be that hard to find and you made a good point to.

Easily, we're talking summer thunderstorms. You get a heavy downpour, flash-flooding, and a few hours later with 115 degree heat, the ground is dry as a bone.

Have you ever been in the desert? 30 miles, that is an unbelievably huge amount of area, you can get lost in the desert by being only 50' from the highway.

This is what gets me. Any trained investigator would know NOT to leave the the scene. She should have known they would be looking for her & should have trusted her coworkers to find her. In the years we've seen Sara(as a charactor), we know that she's much more inteligent than what the writes wrote.

I can't count how many times here in the Rockies that someone will get lost & they just keep walking, getting more lost & farther away from the last point where someone had last seen them.

As far as the search went someone in a heli or plane would have been high enough for her to have seen them. She then could have used the mirror.

Your right. She could not have gotten that far from the mustang.

Also, when the killer was lowering the mustang onto Sara. She in no way could have done it without a winch or something similar. They back away & there's nothing but her. NO WAY!

I though CSI writers were better than what we saw tonight.

Yep. Kate Bush - "This Woman's Work"
It's on her album "The Sensual World" and also on the movie soundtrack to "She's Having A Baby".

Honestly, I was severely disappointed in the season premiere. The writing was terrible. I have also never liked the Sarah Sidel character, so I was actually hoping they would kill her off. I just hope Miami and NY's were better (DVR'd to watch tonight- don't spoil them for me).

The season opener was ok IMO. Nothing 'great' and nothing bad. Just a normal episode of CSI.
