  • The episode was great. The character that played the star\\\'s ex-wife really had me fooled. Then the best friend trying to cover up suicide was sweet, but wonder if he was gay. I was ok with the Laotian scene, but really could have done better..Sorry thamoreless

  • I really like this episode...

    I like the choice of music for the episode really the music that's used to open Room Service and close the episode. The split screen for some scenes was pretty neat too. I think it is so sad that the movie star chose something that could and did end up killing him for some pleasure. It showed that you can have everything and lose it all through death and also that you can have nothing and lose your life because you wanted something material. Really, I take it as it doesn't matter who you are you could still die (movie star or not). The song for the opening and closing gave it the sad spin. You have these two completely different people and look the same thing happened (they both died). Yeah, one was murder and the other well, seemingly accidental death though it almost seems closer to suicide but still...Yeah, I think that's all I got for this episode. It's a good episode.moreless
  • Great intro.

    The one thing that I really loved about this episode was the intro sequence. The combination of the images with the song "Mad World" was just perfect. It shows us that no matter if you are rich or poor, death will come to you either way in this mad world.

    Great detail with the sweat on Viproxay's and the cab driver's face driving in a beat up cab; while on the other hand, everything was pristine and classy inside the limo. I felt sorry for the cab driver who was just collateral damage. Like I said, the combination with the music and the divided screen made the intro of this episode one of the best I have ever seen.moreless
  • "The next Brad Pitt" is found dead in his hotel room, posed on his bed as if he were about to fo a photo shoot. In a separate case, three Laotians are murdered within a day and a night.moreless

    Julian Harper, an up-and-coming movie star, is found dead in his bed: COD was asphyxiation. In the end we find out that he strangled himself to death to increase his pleasure. This case was good, and fairly well written. The B case, involving three dead Laotians, was a bit confusing for me. I couldn't quite figure out what was happpening. I should've put this earlier, but the intro and the beginning of the episode (different POVs of the two crime scenes) was really special and an excellent way to start this episode off. Overall, great but again, I couldn't make sense of the B case.moreless
  • oh i love eric winters, the guy that played the movies star, i loved him in days of our lives as he played rex. i think he is mcsteamy! very hot! it was a lovely episode, stayed glued to the tv till the end.moreless

    so the black csi guy, is he or is he not married? he gets a weird look everytime his marriage is mentioned, so is there something fishy going on there. the guy interpreting in the interrogation room, how stupid was he to take the pd on trust, talk about honour killing, cos your bro prefers gambling and cds to helping the family in the old country now that was tight. all in all it was a must watch episode and cant wait for the next one.moreless

    • Warrick: Did you touch or move the body in any way?
      Blinky: Uh, no way. No. I watch those murder shows, you know? I know to just keep my hands to myself, and, uh, call the cops.
      Sofia: What is with the robe? (Warrick looks to the officer standing nearby)
      Warrick: Did you pat him down?
      Officer: He's packing a small, friendly weapon.
      Warrick: Would you mind standing up for us, sir?
      Blinky: Nah, bro, I-I-I ... kind of got the angle of the dangle going. The boing, boing, boing.
      Sofia: Stand up. (Blinky stands up, uncomfortably)
      Blinky: I, uh, took a Prevalis on the plane over. I been pitching a tent for, like, eight hours. Yeah, I-I think I need to consult a physician.
      Sofia: It's called a priapism. Just in case you were wondering.
      Warrick: What else you on, man?
      Blinky: Oh, uh, nothing. I mean, uh, I smoked a little herb at the club, but that's it.
      Warrick: What about Julian?
      Blinky: Oh, Jules? Oh, no, he, uh ... he won't even take aspirin. You know, he's organic. You know, treats his body like a temple.

      Hodges: I was just having the greatest dream.
      Warrick: You were out.
      Hodges: It was the 80's and I had this Don Johnson beard, you know, the Miami Vice stubble. It just gave me this air of danger. My lady loved it.

      Grissom: Now, why would I need to do that?
      Catherine: I don't know, you tell me.
      Grissom: Look, I know you tend to get a little territorial about your crime scenes and I don't want there to be any tension between us so I'm giving you fair warning. (he walks up to her crime scene)
      Catherine (annoyed): Fair warning for what?
