Question: Do you have any burning CSI scoop you need to tell us?

Answer: Major-ass prattle poop! Facing the looming clash from Grey's Anatomy, I hear producers will be going way, way, way out on the story lines this coming season. Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Douglas Petrie has been brought onto the writing staff and given what my source calls "a very free hand" to bring a wilder take to the storytelling. Grissom, for example, will talk to the dead in at least one episode. (Speaking of Buffy, you have to check out this YouTube gem.)
