I agree with you, iwantboromir. I would love to see Warrick's Grams since he quotes her so much. I don't see any problem with getting some insight in the characters' lives if it is in balance with the unique cases. We have seen these people for years, but we have no idea how Warrick feels about his absent father or how Nick relates to his siblings. We don't see how Catherine is dealing with a teenage Lindsey or if Grissom has any interaction with his mother. I would like to know some of those things but not have their stories overtake the science.
