Oh my gosh, guys, can we stop discussing screen time? Let's give TPTB the benefit of the doubt and watch a month or so of episodes before griping. I know, in the past, CSI has not done the best job of handling breaking up the screen time. Warrick and Nick seem more like background characters most the time, which is unfortunate. Brass sometimes blips off the map for episodes at a time, and he's been there since day 1. As for keeping every actor in every episode, it's almost impossible. Some actors have other projects going on during the usual shooting period of the season. And, often, this show tends to double shoot towards the end of the season. Rather than shooting a single episode at a time, they shoot two separate episodes at once. This makes it difficult for actors to be in every episode. It's one of those things that has to happen on a show that uses 8 business days to shoot an episode. For Greg fans, I think what you're getting now is more than you used to. I know for fans who only came on in the last two seasons, it doesn't seem that way, but Greg used to be the Hodgins, in that, he was usually in a lot of episodes, but not for long. I think that a lot of us have voiced our problems with the cast bloat, and I want to wait a while before griping anymore, if only to build up evidence to lodge a proper complaint. So, if after a month or so, you think the cast bloat is detracting from the screen time of your favorites, you can try contacting CBS about it; but, remember, screen time comes mostly from contracts, so the actors will get as much screen time as their contracts allow. Therefore, don't always blame their lack of screentime on TPTB. Sometimes, you need to blame actors' agents. As for this new season, I am actually looking forward to it. I think the Season 7 opener will test my newfound re-appreciation of Catherine, but I'm trying to remain open-minded. "Toe Tags" sounds like a fun romp into the ALMOST paranormal, but I hope it's better than last year's "Shooting Stars." "Fannysmackin'" should be great because we get to see Greg really pushed for the first time since the lab blew up, and we get to see Grissom reminded that there are dangers for his team every day, not just in the extreme moments. "Double Cross" is one I'm nervous about; as a Christian, I'm always interested in what the mainstream media has to say about faith; and my Grandmother is Spanish Catholic, raised by nuns in Barcelona, so, I'm probably going to try to make sure she doesn't watch... As a woman in her late-70's, I think it would be too much. "Burnout" sounds compelling, thus far, though I worry about the amount of Sophia time being reported in the initial sides. Yes, I know it's subject to change, but, if this episode turns out to be Sophia heavy, there might be some evidence for those worried about screentime to grab ahold of. Personally, I don't worry about screentime. Yes, I'd love to see more of the boys, and even our beloved Brass! However, I have no control over screentime. So, I just watch and enjoy every single second my favorite character (Sara) and all the others have.
