man....where's sara?

I agree, maybe they are trying to work out all of the kinks in her contract.... or maybe they want Grissom to have a love intrest in a new character... I hope not

it was an ok epi.it could have been better. to bad sara wasnt there.

Bah. No Sara= Crappy Epi. Well, that's not 'entirely' true. The only good part of the epi is when Cath is tying Gris' tie. That's it.

HATED this episode. A day without Sara is like a day without sunshine. Hated the new woman from day shift. Hope Griss doesn't get involved with her or I'll scream!

does anyone know the tune that was playing when Warrick found the uniforms and masks and when cathy was inspecting the service elevator?

I watched this ep with no feeling at all for the entire show. I hated the new girl as well.....she had best not be the love interest for Gris........ Where is Sara? And who did kill the girl up in the room??? Not a good ep at all.....

Admittedly, I've seen better episodes, but I still don't get the big Sara obsession. Frankly I can live without her. That being said, I hope the new girl isn't a new love interest for Grissom. BRING BACK LADY HEATHER.

Goodshow - has grissom forgotten Lady Heather - looks like love is in the air

story line's rather old and yeah, this one's definitely not the case of the more the merrier adage!

hey..I missed the last 10 min. of the show..what happened?
sanderz_sweetie 14 November 2004  Vote: 5/10
WHERE IS SARA???? hate the girl from the day shift. if she gets involved with grissom i swear i will kick someone........hard.
eye-rate 28 December 2004  Vote: 2/10
Grissom is the foundation! lose the new girl! Entirely to much cat!!! The crew needs to stay together, Any splitting of night crew would be devasting to die hard fans like me. Grissom and sara should finally get together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beyond that don't
Donel 01 January 2005  Vote: 5/10
I love CSI but splitting Grissom's team up was a mistake. Neither I nor my husband like the new girl. She has no chemistry with the rest of the crew. Now Catherine is getting uppity in her new position, which is not very becoming. Why mess with succes

Is Sara fired again??
giannis52 11 November 2004  Vote: 5/10
where is sara?
FoxRox 15 November 2004  Vote: 1/10
Where is Sara? She´s the reason I watch for christs sake! Also an overall boring episode. Sofia doesn´t fit in, I hope she´s not going to steal more screentime from the originals.
SaraSidle9 16 November 2004  Vote: 1/10
THIS EPISODE SUCKED! Where was Sara?! I HATE that hochie from days! She needs to go back to days! You barely saw anyone, but the main people, Grissom and Cath, and then the new girl. The writers can do better than that! They are spending to much time on t
csi_chickadee 23 January 2005  Vote: 7/10
Could have been better..missed Sara!!! Sophie Curtis is a bitch!!!! i hate her so much!!!!!!!!! i swear if she gets involved with Grissom in any i swear i'll.......
CSIrush 12 February 2005  Vote: 5/10
No Sara = worst episode. ya too much Cat, and Sofia was pathetic. It was like two catherine. Hello there writers, give more screentime to Sara, she can bring down the house. C'mon you can do better than that.
ALWhorse 19 December 2004  Vote: 1/10
I HATE SOFIA SHE NEEDS TO BE KILLED OFF! and the episode really wasnt great anyways....plus, no sara
partofme 11 February 2005  Vote: 10/10
I thought that this was a really good episode. I really do not understand why it doesn't have a better rating on here.

Really missed Sara. What are you doing tptb. Sara is the life of CSI. This episode sucked.
CathAndGriss4Ever 28 December 2004  Vote: 2/10
Pretty bad episode! I missed Sara!! And I do hate that new girl as well! But I'm still wanting Cath and Griss together. (I know I'm the minority!)

showhat 23 March 2005  Vote: 7/10

What about SARA?? It isn't fair. I've had enough now I want my share....
janpass 05 April 2005  Vote: 5/10
Not a great episode. Did not like the new girl from days. I cannot believe you would go to a crime scene with an evening dress and tux on.
bibiche 10 April 2005  Vote: 4/10
Didn't like the episode, not because of Sara not being there but cos the whole crew seemed to be missing. No interaction whatsoever. I hate the new girl. I liked Griss in a tux and Sara and Nick together would look good an be pretty hot
El_Cascador 03 May 2005  Vote: 7/10
Not a bad one. Not a good one either. I liked the begining but I was disapointed by the end.
liana86 07 June 2005  Vote: 7/10
it wasn't the greatest but it was good... not a big fan of sara so it didn't bug me
CSI3_Sidle 07 June 2005  Vote: 1/10
Huge fanof Sar, so it bugged me hell of a lot. Am also a huge GS shipper.... so you guys can understand the hate I have for Sofia! Was an ok ep, good ending... but it could have been better. Loved Griss's speach! (lol)
