    isn't he the guy who, awhile back, orchestrated a walkout for more money and was told he would be fired if he didn't get back to work? geez…

    George Eads has been on CSI for a long time. This writer must be very important to the show. Otherwise, they would have been shown the door. If Eads wasn't a popular character, he would have been shown the door. That's Hollywood.
