Happy Thanksgiving! And thank you to everyone who's replied to this sham of a poll that CBS is running. Some people have better things to do than stay up all night voting on a meaningless poll that is solely being done to see how much traffic they can get to the website. And then E/C fans brag about how many times they voted - seriously, how does that show that everyone loves E/C folks? All it shows is that there are a group of people who are obsessed, not that everyone wants to see E/C locking lips again - PLEASE NO!!! :brickwall: If there's anything we, as non-E/C fans have accomplished, it's showing that there are people out there who can't stomach E/C b/c of the crappy storylines and the way it was handled, as well as believing that there is zero chemistry between these too. CSI:Miami w/out the whole E/C drama is 100% BETTER! I think most fans (those who aren't compulsively voting 2,000 times a day) have given this season very good reviews - the shows have put the focus where it belongs - on the TEAM as a TEAM and on the victims. I don't know what we have to do to get it across to TPTB that this is the RIGHT direction and we don't need to see anymore painfully pathetic "love scenes" between E/C - we want to see a genuine friendly caring atmosphere between ALL the team members. I too have liked the interaction of ALL the team this season, even between Eric and Cal. While I admit it's kind of weird that they didn't address the breakup and they act like they never were a couple, I enjoy seeing them as just friends again, like they were for the first 5 seasons. It worked great back then, and it works great now. I respect their characters a lot more when they aren't playing mind games w/each other and are just focused on the case, the victims and the team (as friends). Please, TPTB, don't ruin a good thing based on a few fans voting compulsively! If you want a fair reading on the situation, make it "ONE PERSON, ONE VOTE", and then look at those results. Speed would KICK E/C'S TAIL!!!! (Yea, that was total sacrilege what they did - Speed's funeral was WAY more pivotal to the series and much more moving than a stupid kiss. People still love Speed and miss him (or else TPTB wouldn't have tried to get him to come back). There's no way the majority of general, run of the mill Miami fans would prefer a kiss to Speed's funeral - there was way more weight behind that event, and it was a turning point for Miami.) So, I don't really know why that stupid poll bothers me, except for the fact that it sends a skewed, incorrect view of the show's fans. And i LOVE speed and the fact that E/C is now causing him to be disrespected just makes me dislike this ship even more (if that was possible).
