ok, finally watched the first episode last night... i was not that impressed. anytime the CSI's are in trouble the team magically finds them....... someone needs to die on the show, but if Sidel would have died it would have made the season soooo much better because then Grissom would have just consumed himself with guilt and work. but noooooooooooooo they have to keep the ugly bitch on because that would hurt Grissoms character too mcuh.
It was a so so episode. I expected a lot more. After reading some of the posts in this thread about her contract I was sort of expecting it, but why would they really kill one of their own? It's got to be all goody goody.
If Sara is out it's going to be some lame bullshit like her and Grissom break up and she can't handle it and moves to another state.
I liked it. Although I think it would have made more of an impact if she had died. They always manage to figure everything out and I wish just once they could screw it up a bit. I am glad because I liked the fact that while we knew they were in a relationship they never showed any of it. I thought that was very engaging. I was always looking for a hint or something and enjoyed that it never showed.
