Did You Know?


Ryan touches the computer they are examining says that it is running hot. He removes the side cover to find out why. The processor fan is completely plugged with paper. Ryan says that this is why the hard drive is so hot. The case fans would still be running so only the processor would overheat and not the hard drive. For this reason it is also doubtful you could feel any abnormal heat by touching the case. With the blockage they show, the CPU could not operate for more than a couple of minutes before it is either completely destroyed or heat protection would cause it to shut down. See more »


Dr. Alexx Woods: Through-and-through. Bullet missed everything important. That means the gunshot wound didn't kill her.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So what did, Alexx?
Dr. Alexx Woods: I noticed this when her skin dried out. Skin's worn around her nose and mouth from friction. She wasn't just struggling for air, Horatio.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: So, she was smothered.
Dr. Alexx Woods: That's what the evidence says.

Liberal Bias Lives On
12 November 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

There's a manhunt underway around one of the marinas. A young black guy, "Tobey Hollins," (Robert Richard) with blood all over him, dashes out of the bushes and is chased and finally caught.

"Capt. Frank Tripp" (Rex Linn) has the young man arrested. The kid confesses, Frank is satisfied, but Horatio, after a quick look-see back at the boat in which a young lady was killed, is not so sure they have the right person in custody.

This is another age-old storyline among the CSI shows. The PC-oriented Jerry Bruckmeier shows tend to lean that way, so you know the black kid is innocent. Then, the investigation is on for the CSI team to see who really did kill this woman aboard a boat and how.

To complicate matters, while in jail, the "Tobey" kills his sadistic cell-mate. And - oh, yes, he's a white guy, of course. In fact, only the white inmates are shown to be beasts to the black kid. The reverse racism of white Liberals in the entertainment business never ends!

Nonetheless, despite the typical bias, it's a decent show and a "thought- provoking" ending
