The CSIs investigate the demise of a prominent news anchor during a live broadcast.

Didn't like Sara's relationship angst when she was in love with Grisson and couldn't have him. Don't like it now when she is married to him but never sees him. Honestly, its just a waste.

How many people have died or been seriously injured around Morgan? Seriously the girl is a danger just walking around.

Either Sara is pregnant or she wants a divorce.

Why was Fin in this? They should have put Nick in instead.

Since Sara said she would be sad talking to Grissom, I assume she's going to ask for a divorce. Don't know how their marriage has survived this long when they're never together.

I always thought the long distance marriage storyline was stupid, so I'm hoping for divorce.

As soon as they showed the reporter out in the field reporting on the storm (and I knew from the episode description that a murder was going to happen in the studio) I wondered how long it would take for them to realize that she could have pre-recorded the segment. I was right, but for the wrong reason. I should have known from the beginning that it was the studio guy (producer?) because the actor was somebody I've seen on lots of other shows, so of course he had to be the killer. I did like the 'capture the flag' game to prove whodunit.

I like Sara, but don't really care about her married life troubles with Grissom.

Daniel Roebuck. Always liked him.

And if these brilliant CSI's had decided AT FIRST to figure out who could physically get to the victim and back out again in 20 seconds, thus narrowing their suspect list, the episode would have lasted about five minutes.

I have never been a fan of GSR but since they are together I wish the PTB would just leave them alone. There's no reason they couldn't have had Grissom make Las Vegas his base of operations. He could work over at the university and travel when required and we wouldn't even need to see him. Just the occasional throw away line every few episodes and it would've all been good.

But no.

Apparently thats not DRAMATIC enough for TPTB. *eye-roll*

Exactly...but then what would we have done with the other 55 minutes?:)

Also I was thinking that the flag hunt wasn't really valid since the station workers would have been much more familiar with the space and could navigate more easily in the dark, whereas the CSI's would stumble around a bit.

Not only that but the station workers could have I don't know maybe ran to the studio. Greg, Morgan and Fin were all just a few steps away from the chair after walking there. They could have all easily made it if they ran.

And I am really not looking forward to Sara/Grissom angst. I mean if Grissom is respected enough to get a research position at a French university he should be making awesome money (plus they have no kids). Why not just throw in lines every once and awhile about how Sara has to leave when a case is finished because she is taking a week off to fly out and see him. Or they are both flying to New York to have a weekend together or something.

It sounded like him to me, but stilted. Like it was pieced together from prerecorded dialog.

Except that the producer guy said two or three other lines while the lights were out before he said the "Theresa are you ok" line. If he took the time during the lights going out to kill Theresa, wouldn't the other people in the production booth have realized he wasn't there saying the other lines?



I feel like the last person who learned shorthand in highschool (and I really only remember bits and pieces - but it served me great for note taking in college). I bet it would have taken them less time to find a former secretary in their 50s or 60s who could come in and read it in a minute.

My problem with the episode was that they wasted most of the first act determining that it was premeditated. I'm sorry, somebody is stabbed in a 30 second window of opportunity of total darkness? Yeah, I'm sure that was set off by a random event, so spending ten minutes to come up with "The power cut was deliberate!" was pure padding. I have to say, though, I didn't spot the murderer until the reveal.

 

As for the GSR woes, I don't really care, but I would prefer they just left them alone. Can TPTB see no relationship without wanting to put them through the wringer? A long distance relationship is tough enough, you don't need to add more angst to it.

I just watched the rerun of this episode and I agree with Hanahope....it would have been much quicker to ask me to just read it to them!  Any retired secretary from way back when could easily have done that.
