    Well, both of the double posts evidently got deleted but I did see the premier episode. I came away from it shaking my head. Why did Sara Sidle keep walking through the desert, leaving little clues along the way, when she must know that the best way to be found is to sit and wait for your rescuers?

    The Vegas version is the best of the three CSI shows but even they goof up once in a while.

    There are two kinds of 'suspense' that I can't stand on TV. One is where one or more of the stars is taken hostage and the other is where the bad guy gets away for a later episode and then gets away again for a later episode, etc. Thank goodness this 'miniature' killer stuff is over with.

    Clearly not an option Two reasons which I can tell of to you right now
    first she would have been likely washed away or burried to death in sand as was the car and also the other hiker who was found in the sand/dirt who had been caught in the rain water deluge

    Second, if she had stayed put and not been sand smothered or drowned then the show would have ended too soon and there would have been more commercials and less of Gil Grissom looking like he had lost his last chance at love I personally find the Grissom/Sidle love thing to be sick sick sick It is clear Grissom is asexual he has never even given Catherine Willows (Marg Helenberger) a second glance or any other woman (or man either) The love interest thing is sick sick sick It is sick I tell you.

    Yes it is the best I do not even bother with the other two any more

    :saevilw:Is it? Is any thing ever really over in these types of programs?:saevil:

    But imagine having a boss like him. You could be making all kinds of faces and hand gestures at him while he lectures you on your job performance with his back to you.

    I do a great impression of him at the beginning and end of each episode, when he does that stupid thing with his sunglasses. I had my family in stitches the Fourth of July.:smile:

    Rumor has it the actress who plays Sara Sydle is leaving the show. Apparently she thinks she can move on to bigger and better things.

    Gil thrives on mind games and you can tell he gets a kick out of Katherine Willows (Marg) always trying to get a rise out of him and he did respect the boss/employee thing with her is another reason. I think it will come out that Katherine is probably pretty torqued at the Sarah Grissom thing somewhere down the road.

    As for Sara, you have to go back to the second episode. In the first episode, one of the team was killed while processing a crime scene. In the next episode, Grissom brought in "a girl he had worked with before", that girl was Sara. From moment one the whole team knew there was something up with Sarah and who she was to Grissom, they just finally got used to her and accepted her. Remember the episode they got reprimanded for their affair, two very telling things happened. When sarah was asked when she and Grissom started being romantic, she said "two years ago." Grissom answered the same question with "14 years ago". Grissom is a very cerebral person and to him it started when he knew there was a spark there. Sara didn't think it started til they literally got physical. Remember Lady Heather? No one knows if he slept with her, but they both had an erotic mental relationship going. It wouldn't surprise me if the reason he didn't really go further with Lady Heather was because of Sara. Sara did also get a bit peeved when Grissom turned out to be her alibi for a murder. The other thing is Katherine even said she knew Grissom and Sara were an item "It was obvious."

    For this to make sense, you have to watch all the seasons in full. The clues have always been there.

    *putting glasses on my face and turning my head to one side* I guess she knows how to make an impression. (Queue The Who music)

    Lady Heather? She encompasses that which Grissom loves. She is a creature of the night, she is NOBODY'S fool, super intelligent and shares a lot of Grissom's odd passions. They had a very cerebral love affair. Grissom and Lady Heather got off on trying to get to each other and mentally stimulating each other. These two fell apart after Grissom had to deal with the case of her and the guy who killed her daughter and subsequently saw Lady Heather beating the guy who killed her daughter to death. If I recall, she kind of played Grissom to get what she needed to find the guy and beat him down. The whole thing got wierd after that. Grissom felt betrayed by her.

    Jorja Fox has confirmed she is leaving as she has other things she wants to do while she is still young enough to. I think she is being smart and shrewd with her career. A good director can use her clebrity from CSI and make a big film with her. Sara wasn't a strong character on the show and with the love story thing, she would have to become a more formed character and that leads to type casting. By getting out now, she is not type cast, she is knwon in the industry from being on the number one crime drama, and she can possibly do what David Caruso failed at.

    Well, just as long as they don't make a re-remake of the awful Kiss of Death and who could forget the terminal flop Jade. Caruso had some lousy instinct in scripts (so did Nicholas Cage for Kiss of Death). As long as Jorja stays away from movies like these that Caruso made, she'll be fine. I'd like to see her do a Merchant & Ivory production. She could do it.

    The original is the best and only as far as I'm concerned. The Miami version is laughable because of David Caruso and as for the NY version....now that is an embarrassment.
    Would have loved for Grissom to have developed more of his relationship with lady Heather. Sara is just so weak and her many problems make more for Gil to study her rather than have any sort of relationship.
    Personally, I'd love to see something with Warwick, Nick and Greg but I know that will never happen. All three of those guys are hot each in their own way.

    He'd better hurry then since she is about to disappear from the show
    Maybe you need to write the script for this scenario and send it in to them There might be a possibility they would go for it.

    Caruso was an arrogant ass, he left NYPD Blue after the first season! No one quits a top rated series for bigger and better things unless their last name is Spielberg or Coppola.

    NOTE: I'm a huge fan, I've seen every episode at least 3 times.:smile:
