I really liked last night's epi. The gross factor was high, but to tell you the truth, after the first wince at "Wow, that's gross!!" it's not even bothering me anymore. Maybe because I watch Survivor first, then CSI, then ER, which isn't close but has it's nights, I'm just becoming immune. I usually eat dinner during one of the shows, even, just timing of it.
I like the human sides to these people, and that they show it to us. Katherine's struggle with her dad's "gift," was great. I had forgotten he got out of prison until he showed back up. When Gil heard the noise outside and got out his gun, I said "He wouldn't have been able to do that 6 months ago, he couldn't hear squat." I like the crime scenes, and solving them based on evidence too, it's just nice to humanize their characters some in the process.
When the show first came on last night, I was afraid that something bad was going to happen to the older ME guy, because you know how they always show the crime or something leading up to it at the beginning. I was almost relieved to see the head. ROFL!
The brothers, the son, the backstory with the gas station guy and the diner woman... it was just a great epi, full of emotion.
I LOVE THIS SHOW!
