    Grissom is too cool. I honestly can't imagine anyone else in this role. To me that says a lot!

    I love Grissom too. And I agree, there's nobody that could fill his shoes. (maybe that's why I can't stand the Miami version...because Caruso is trying to hard and is nothing like Gil!)

    I wish they would delve a little deeper into his deafness (not spend an entire episode on it mind you, but a little more info) Or have the others find out.

    Nope, Grissom won't tell anyone all season, and then in the season finale Nick will be crossing a street with Grissom and yell, "Grissom, watch out" but it will be too late because he won't hear Nick and get creamed by a taxi that is distracted because they are filming Taxicab Confessions inside the vehicle.
