November 2, 2006: Good Job, Gashopper Season 7, Episode 6

I always love it when someone tries to tell Gil Grissom that they know what he's thinking. No one ever knows what Gil is thinking, especially in this episode. Seems to me like Gil's feelin' a bit tired of it all right now. We all get to that point once in a while. You know, where you sit in your drab gray cube, squinting at the computer more and more as the day gets long. And then suddenly you just lose it, and everything sort of jumbles. We all need some time to clear our head now and again. Having Grissom clearly not all together right now is a clever way for the producers to write in his imminent hiatus from the show. As for the rest of the episode, there wasn't a whole lot of captivating material, though Grissom's reaction to Brass when he told Carl, "Bad things happen to bad people," was interesting. We all know Grissom is a big fan of letting the evidence do the talking, and he really seemed like he wanted to give the guy a legit shot to prove he was innocent without Brass' being an idiot. But who can blame the captain for acting the way he did. Brass has never been known for being overly cordial anyway. I certainly couldn't believe that Jason's football-coach grandfather could sit at the station and claim that fighting two little boys was self-defense. I know they arrested the grandfather, but they should be charging him with murder as well. He's the one that threw Lucas to the ground and caused the bleeding in his head. Carl certainly deserves the most blame here for what he did, but the grandfather deserves all of what he gets and more. That's not discipline. That's a coward. Feel free to comment and let me know what you thought of this one. I'm also curious to hear your reaction to Sara's "be nicer" comment to Gil. I'm not sure I'd like my employee telling me how to act. Until next week, friends. show less
