My one-time favorite show will never be the same.
I stopped watching CSI regularly when they started to change things up a lot (aka, no Gil Grissom, talks of no more Grissom, ever) and have been playing catch up on Spike! TV. I love CSI. Not Miami, not New York, but my CSI in Las Vegas, which I started watching religiously after it's first season.
Now, it's all going to be reruns for me, because I can't picture CSI without William Petersen. His character is too essential, too quirky and I admit it, too good looking (lol) to be easily replaced or forgotten.
Good-bye, Grissom. I'll see you in the reruns......
