I thought the show was ok, I didnt particularly like the dark filming. I cant say I like it better than Miami, it was hard accepting Miami when it started, I think vegas is the best. There is no one like "Grisom" and I feel like the 2 spin-off just try to hard to be that serious, smart, hmm how do I say it, I dont those corney catch phrases before commercials... puleassse... My guess it that Gary Sinse's charchter lost his wife on 9/11... interesting they made a point to show his wedding ring, when gripping the fence.... I will continue to watch though!!!
