It was okay, but the Without A Trace Crossover part was a pathetic attempt to retain the CSI crowd.
CBS knows now for sure (if they didn't already) that Without a Trace doesn't have a leg to stand on unless they can "force" CSI-viewers to watch. If CSI is still going to be around for a few more seasons (it won't last long if William Peterson leaves), they are going to need to find a good new show that is not able to find an audience to follow CSI, not W.A.T.
My issue with recent CSI is too much of the personal story of the CSI'ers. I liked it when eps were self-contained and were 100% focused on the case, not Grissom and Sara, or Catherine Willows and her child.
And for the self-contained thing, I hate the miniature-killer crap. It was too much of a deviation from the standard CSI outline.
