I had series 9 and 10 on DVD for a while before actually watching them. Having seen sneak peaks of the series on TV, I knew what was coming, and wasn't looking forward to watching Grisham leave. How can the CSI Las Vegas team manage without their mainstay? I must admit that these worries grew, when I finally ventured into series 9 and 10. But no actor is bigger than a show, are they Mr Sheen? And by series 11 I was actually forgetting the great Grisham, and becoming more and more intrigued with the new boy, Ray Langston. Along with the development of the rest of the cast, including the increasingly annoying Hodges, the series as gone from strength to strength and gone a long way to making the absence of Grisham less and less disappointing. Can't wait for the next fix, and the possibility of a Grisham return???
