October 12, 2006: Fannysmackin' Season 7, Episode 4

I have this funny feeling right now. I think this was the best episode of the season so far and actually the best episode in a long time on CSI but at the same time it was certainly right up there with Nick being buried alive as completely emotionally draining. The episode itself was great, the story line though - certainly nothing great about it. Poor Greg. He was completely stoked after completing his first trial, looking all sharp in his suit and then he gets the beatdown of his life. I know a lot of people wanted to see more stories revolve around Greg, but I'm pretty sure this isn't what we all had in mind. Man, the beating him and all the others got looked brutal. I can't imagine the feeling. In my entire life I've thrown exactly zero punches and only had one punch thrown at me. What the heck would I do if even one person came up to me and started punching or kicking me, let alone the massive amount that got thrown down in this episode? If you saw the preview last week you knew this was coming, but it was still quite shocking. I find it remarkable, though, how even when lying on the ground, bones broken and covered in blood, Greg is still able to tell Sara about the scratch and the spit. That's a dedicated man right there. These kids just randomly beat the crap out of people for fun and show no remorse when confronted. What a world. It was really cool for the man whose life Greg saved to come and thank him but then also, do you get the feeling this isn't over yet? When the kid Greg hit with his car died, the look on what I assumed was his brother's face was one of those wait-and-see-what-happens-to-you-next type of stares. For weeks now I've been resisting talking about GSR simply because that's not what anything has been about this season. Despite the complaints of many people, the one or two very subtle scenes between Sara and Gil aren't any different than past episodes. Now we're just looking at it differently. I went back and checked out some episodes of past seasons this week and there are subtle remarks in a few of those too that I'm sure no one even thought twice about at the time. So, Grissom coming in on Sara in her street-fighter stance - that's just not true GSR. Though I will say that Sara looked pretty dang good in just that tank top kicking the crap out of the dummy. Finally, as much as I wanted to rag on K-Fed, I really can't. He was harmless. I mean, obviously "Pig" wasn't a harmless character, but with only a handful of lines and two real scenes, Mr. Spears didn't provide a jump-the-shark moment as I (and probably most of you) expected.
