The lack of ethnic diversity in the CSI shows is frustrating as well, and it's even more maddening that the characters they do have on the shows often get shafted for storylines, like Hawkes and Alexx. Miami actually has the most ethnically diverse cast (at least before the departure of Alexx), and both Delko and Natalia get a fair amount of storylines. Warrick on CSI does as well. NY really needs to stop neglecting Hawkes. Yeah, ultimately it does come down to that. I'd like to see a go at it, but at the same time, like you, I think we'd be wincing. I think they're at about 50/50, with Stella/Frankie and Danny/Lindsay on the terrible side, and Mac/Claire, Mac/Peyton and on a smaller scale, Danny/Rikki and Flack/Angell on the realistic side. But I do agree that it would be a big gamble. Still, we could have a gay character introduced without a romance at least initially. Though if they think Montana is another planet, I would fear for that character a bit. :lol: :lol: I think by season seven, Danny could probably have slept with all of the characters in the main cast for all the wrong reasons. :lol: Danny just kind of gives it away. :lol: But I think even if he did sleep with Flack for the wrong reasons, it wouldn't ruin their friendship. Flack seems able to put up with anything from Danny. LOL, yeah, the bond between those two is great--I really like how it's evolved. :lol: Danny needs to stop being such a slut and sleep with someone for the right reasons. Somehow, I feel that when the show airs its last episode, we'll still be waiting for that... :lol: Not a bad idea if they're going to make her a recurring character.
