Catherine and Sara are assigned to work on the case of a body found in an area frequented by tranvestites. Their investigation reveals that the victim was actually a clown who worked children's parties. Elsewhere, death of a drug dealer is investigated.
This episode works well because it is well written and very entertaining. The story of the murder of Doodles the clown works better I believe because it's more compelling and better written than the story of the dead drug dealer. Seeing how the investigation into the death of the clown kept me interested in the story because of the many twists and turns the story took. Those twists were very plausible and my mind and helped make this episode as good as it is. The investigation into the murder of the drug dealer was good, but it was somewhat inferior.
I would rate this episode as a slightly weird one. A woman with a clown fetish and a junkie who kills her drug conselor, wayyyyyy too freaky. Not much went on, I found the storyline to be very creative, but the kid who was driving the dead guy's car was pretty funny I have to admit. This ep was pretty much an average CSI episode, as I said before, not much happened. We get to meet a new detective, whose name I cannot spell even if I tried. I didn't think this episode was a waste of time, I thought they could of done something better.
This episode is a great CSI. The unusual subject of clown fetishes is great to watch and is delt with with flair. The drug story line is also dealt with in a touching way, making it harrowing to watch. This is truly CSI at its best, the acting and the story line are at their highest in this episode!
