CSI has been one of the best shows on TV over the last several years. Unfortunately this season is its weakest by far. That's in no small part to the loss of 3 main characters. The two replacements haven't brought much to the show yet either, and I think this show has run its course. With its high ratings, I'm sure they will want to keep this show going ala ER style for as long as possible, even if the whole original cast get replaced. I guess they figure it's the mysteries and tech that keep people watching, but that may be a mistake.
This show really went down hill after Grissom left and the replacement was not a good choice. The show still remains watchable, but it has fallen a great deal from where it was.

I can understand the disappointment exhibited here with some of the reviews about missing William Peterson's character of "Gil Grissom."

Imagine the difficulty for Laurence Fishburne in having to follow in the footsteps of such a popular TV role of iconoclastic "Grissom"... who's unique approach to Crimes and his quirky love of insects made him almost irreplaceable.

Okay, we all miss Warrick, Sara, and Gil........but let's get a grip and look at this series with a fresh perspective.

I think the writing on this show, as good as it was before, has gotten even better; and the plots have remained fresh, creative, and well constructed.

The solving of the Cliffhanger from Season 8 of "Warrick Brown's" murderer was well scripted, with moving roles from all the cast members, especially of course, William Peterson. When a Crime genre show makes this kind of leap into fine dramatic acting, one can only applaud and start believing in Hollywood scriptwriters once again.

And "One to Go".......Peterson's last and final episode was superb. The last moments with him finding Jorja Fox's "Sara" in the jungle, was so well directed and acted; it will remain as one of finest romantic scenes in modern television.

Now we all know why we miss "Gil."

But I think Laurence Fishburne is one of best actors in Hollywood today, and as inenvious a task as he had in replacing a beloved actor as this was, he is pulling it off with a quirkiness and intelligence that made William Peterson one of our favorites.

His ending scene with George Eads ["Nick Stokes"] in "Turn Turn Turn" was some of the best acting I have seen in this complete series.

Season 9 saw William Petersen leave in the 10th episode. Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) had already left Vegas after a very traumatic kidnapping (season 8), then Warrick Brown dies at the end of season 8.

The opening episode is Warrick's funeral. Sara returns and she and Grissom have several GSR moments until she realizes she can not remain in Vegas. Over several episodes we see Grissom take a depressing down-turn--is it because of Sara's leaving or Warrick's death or the change he finds in Lady Heather? Grissom even visits Natalie, the serial killer, and discovers her little secret plan. In these episodes, there are more questions than answers. Grissom does leave to find Sara.

Two new CSIs come in. Riley Adams, a smart-mouth woman with some experience, flirts with Greg but doesn't add much more. We get Ray Langston coming in as a new CSI, level 1. And within a few weeks, CSI, as we've known and loved for years, changes to The Ray Langston Show. He's the center of every episode, except one. He knows all, sees all, can do it all--he's the star now.

The regular cast seems to disappear. Greg has few lines, Catherine melts into a background ghost, Riley becomes a wall, and Nick passes thru the episodes as a shadow. What happened?? Did Petersen leave and take all the writers with him?

While I will purchase season 9, I doubt I will ever watch the last half of the season. I'm willing to give Season 10 a chance, but this is not your former CSI.

In my review of Season 8, I stated that it was time to end this show, & in some ways I still think it has run its course, however this Season really impressed me, at first I was not going to get it, but after catching a few episodes on "SpikeTV" I knew I had to get it, & it was definately a vast improvement over Season 8, this one begins where Season 8 left off with the death of Warrick & the team's attempt to take down the bad cop responsible, like Season 8's opener where they search for Sara, they do the same here, searching for Warrick's killer, Sara Sidle(Jorja Fox) returns breifly to attend Warrick's funeral, but leaves yet again, Grissom(William Peterson) leaves also after 10 episodes, at first I balked at the idea of him leaving, after all, him, Sara, & Warrick were my three favorite characters on this show, however, the beautiful Lauren Lee Smith as new C.S.I. Riley(replacing Warrick) quickly made me forget about Jorja Fox, Smith is so easy on the eyes, they had better not even think of getting rid of her!, & I quickly to my suprise warmed up to Lauarence Fishburne as Ray Langston, true, no one can ever replace Grissom, but unlike many believe, I don't think Fishburne or the writers had that intent, his Ray Langston is a character in his own right, & I believe that Fishburne was a good choice, he is after all a great actor, & this role fits him perfectly, he has definately come a long way since playing a thug in "Death Wish II" or Ike Turner in "Whats love got to do with it", to the "Matrix" or Tom Cruise's arrogant boss in "Mission Impossible III", here, he proves once again how versatile an actor he is, all in all, this Season 9 brings the glory of C.S.I. back, no ridiculous episodes this time around, a must for any fan.
