  • Catherine and Vartann plan a drug bust in a casino.

    9.0
    This was a very interesting episode with Catherine and Vartann on surveillance on two meth dealers but things go wrong when a there is a murder in the casino and the victim was discovered by Archie who took his first dead body hard When there was a dead body Catherine asked to be no police in the casino so it wouldn't affect the investigation of the meth dealers It was interesting to see all the CSI's undercover in the casino all trying to play their part like when Greg was undercover getting some of the drugs off the dealer and then Brass was able to arrest him Things didn't go as planned when one of the dealers came back to the room and Catherine was there and her life was in danger but was saved by Vartann This was overall a really good episode.moreless

  • One of the best endings in CSI history.

    Okay so the reason I watch CSI is for Catharine. She is one of the best female characters on T.V. First off her hair is amazing. This episode was good IMO because it was really different IMO. Instead of there being 2 murder cases there is a steak out and a murder case. Also u start to see the development of a relationship between Catharine and that guy. The ending was great. I was on the edge of my seat. I was like come on Catharine come on Catharine. I was really scarred for her. When he shot the guy you knew she was in shock. I really hope she is okay. I swear if she ever leaves the show I am gone also.moreless
  • Archie is given some real lines and character development.

    7.0
    For me giving any episode of CSI a 7 means it was pretty disappointing. The ecstasy lab storyline was interesting although the ending seemed more than implausible. I'm sort of happy with Catherine possibly getting a love interest, but I think the writers could've found a better way to frame this storyline. I wasn't too interested in the panty sniffer story at all and was actually surprised that this hasn't been covered before. We all know that Vegas is a place where anything goes. The only really good thing about this episode was that Archie Kao was given more screen time; I'd really love to see him moved up as a regular on this show.moreless
  • I liked this episode, but one thing I didn't like about it

    10
    ( little bit of spoilers ahead) I enjoyed this episode. I just didn't like the perverted men. Like when I looked to see what episodes were coming up, it said " The Panty Sniffer" and right then I knew it was going to involve perverts and " hot" woman. But let's get to the good stuff that I liked about it. I liked that the CSI team had to go undercover so They could catch these drug dealers in the act. So they had cameras all around the one hotel they were in. So Catherine and Vartann were on the look out in the hotel room. And here you see Greg in this club trying to let the guy give him the drugs and Greg dressed in a " gangsta" look. That made me giggle. But I liked that it seemed that Catherine and Vartann had a little something going on. Maybe some of you didn't notice but the way they looked at eachother and Vartann said something to Catherine about him being alone and single or something and he said that he was glad he was with her? Something like that. But I thought that was a sweet scene. And the ending. When one of the guys came back to their hotel, and Catherine and Vartann was still in there and the guy was aiming a gun at Vartann when his back was facing him and here comes Catherine defending Vartann and takes the guy down and he's now aiming a gun at her face. And I don't really know why it took Vartann such a long time to pull the trigger. I hope we will find out in the other episodemoreless
