Brilliant again :-),

This review is from: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Season 8 (DVD)
My favourite show never fails to deliver the goods. This is a fantastic season, despite the depature of Jorja Fox (Sara). Surprisingly, there was hardly any fanfare when she left (not on screen anyway). Her relationship with Grisolm was only beginning to take off for the viewers and before it could really get off the ground, she was gone.
In the first episode, Dead Doll, the team race against the clock to find Sara who has been left for dead in the heat of the desert. That was one of the best episodes. My next favourite episode was A La Carte where they investigate a beheaded teen from a go-cart accident. Then in Cockroaches and Lying Down With Dogs, we start to see Warrick in a whole different light - drugs and alcohol and he's framed for a murder in these two episodes. The final show for this season is called For Gedda in which Warrick is accused of murdering a famous Vegas gangster and even he is uncertain of his guilt or innocence. What happens at the end of this episode will leave every fan in shock (even though you've probably read about it or seen it already). I was devastated.
This season gives us a real good look into more of the characters personal lives. The story lines always remain fresh and there seems to be no shortage of material and ideas for keeping us fans loyal. It remains my absolute favourite show and as usual, I cannot wait for it's release. I only hope that for a change, they'll put a synopsis on the dvd cover of each episode. Sometimes you go to look for a particular episode and don't know the name of it - only the storyline - which makes searching for it a little tricky, but despite this, it's always a good buy and I thoroughly enjoy re-watching these all. I hope you'll enjoy it too.
