I want a return to what made CI great--humor/snark, with Goren and Eames working together as tag team to nail the perps, plus formidable worthy villians and corresponding arias to provide the appropriate coda to the episode.

Like most, I want to see good writing - episodes that I have to watch more than once to catch all the clues and hints that lead Goren and Eames to their conclusions - instead of just watching them more than once because...well, it's Goren and Eames. Moral conundrums and choices to do with the case are always a bonus element.
I don't want to see girlfriends/boyfriends, much out of work hours stuff, just the two of them working together on difficult cases with lots of twists to subvert our expectations. Lots of snarks are good.
I really don't want all the overdone drama with the guys 'upstairs', I hope the comments about them still thinking he is crazy is about all the mention they make of it, because it's been done to death. I wouldn't be disappointed not to see the Chief of D's make a single appearance. (Or maybe Goren could investigate the Chief's assassination??)
Though, when all is said and done, I'm just happy to have them back!
