    #1 Grissom

    #2 Mac

    #3 Horatio

    Grissom is (was) the perfect balance of knowledge, wisdom and "gallows humor" (and maybe "cynicism") whose complex character was (IMO) the linchpin of CSI. He was the most-qualified/best CSI there, and could have rose to the top, but he wouldn't (as Sara Sidle told Conrad Eckley) "kiss-ass."

    Mac... a real bastion of integrity. Less egghead-ish than Grissom, but a great lead character in his own right.

    Horatio... IMO is like a modern-day "Steve McGarrett (of "Hawaii Five-O" fame)--except with those trademark glasses, and trademark way of "taking them off." Like McGarrett, Horatio's hare never seems to move (except maybe "ever-so-slightly" in the Miami breezes).

    For now: The order I have is:

    1. Grissom

    2. Horatio

    3. Mac (but I think that he may move to second since I am just getting into CSI:NY and GS is a much better actor than DC)

    I really dont even recall if I posted in this thread before but here is how I feel:

    There are moments when I switch my order of who I like more or is better. Ther eare moments when each of them, have made me love them more than the others. And there are moments when they do stupid things, and I want to scream and it puts them in second place or third. In the end I love them all in the end equally.

    For me:
    1: Mac, because he's a mix of Grissom and H. I mean, Grissom is more a scientist, and H is more a cop, and Mac is the mix
    2: Maybe Grissom, just because sometimes he's cute and because I don't really like H.
    3: Horatio, sometimes he's irksome

    Grissom: Just so adorable.

    LaughingGrissom- He is awesome and I wish he was still on the show.


    SmileMac- He's a close second to Griss, but he has a whiny voice.


    YellHoratio- He's definately last on my list because he talks so slow it's painful, and the glasses thing has become a television cliche for the showbecause of him.
