Re: CSI: NY Season 5 Spoiler Dicussion - Back in the Big Apple Hey, Top. Yeah, I lurk to see if the show's quality has improved. Which I think in many ways it has. The D/L not being one at all. From a writer's stand point I was trying to get inside the heads of the writers to figure out why they were rushing things so much when the policy is usually milk that cow for all it's worth (we say things like this in Montana. Not that I'm from Montana, ). Going the whole soap opera route, pop the question in a couple of episodes rather than play out the story line... just had me wondering. Oh, I meant to mention as well...Hawkes was moved from the morgue to a CSI but we never really saw him because we had Lindsay there to do the grunt work. Now we're seeing more Hawkes...OMG!! Really? ...and less Lindsay. Gotta be a correlation there.
