CSI 8.09 "Cockroaches" [watched on cbs.com: 2007-12-13]

Watching this episode I felt like, "Why do I even keep watching this show?"

inntertube told me "Warrick's addiction to pills begins to impact his job when his investigation into the underground mob in Vegas results in him being targeted as the prime suspect in a mob-related case."

Way to spoil me -- for a plot point we don't even get until like the last five minutes. Did we learn nothing from Nick's hooking up with a hooker? Hooking up with someone connected to a case you're working on is not a good idea.

I liked some of the visuals at the beginning (the colored paper, the guy running with blood on his face), and the mom was interesting, but a lot of the episode I just wasn't into -- in part because I'm not big on the "CSI member gets excessively invested in a particular case" plotlines.

We saw Warrick's pill plotline coming as soon as Sara mentioned it, but I feel like (a) I just saw some of this on WaT with Martin, and (b) do we always have to have a team member having personal drama? We just finished a long Grissom and Sara arc, can't we move on from that gradually and just let it be an ensemble show without pushing any one character's personal life to the forefront? (Yes, I did like Nick noticing the pills and confronting him.)

I liked that Candy/Joanna was a black belt. Wow Warrick was seriously drugged out in that motel room. (And her "Sweet dreams" at the end was creepy.)
