  • Jorja Fox should be thankful she jumped ship before this Thanksgiving waste of time was filmed.

    From the beginning minutes, you knew the episode was going to be agitating and not that good. In trying to provide a light-hearted episode, it was ruined by the fact that everyone just seemed to be trying way to hard. Knowing winks to the audience, head bobs to direct the camera, and other cartoonish conventions were just silly and detracted further from the presentation.
    Broken up into several non-simultaneous mini-cases that Hodges had pawned off as "thinking exercises" to test his new Lab Rats board game, each one dealt with the death of a techie in the lab. Several continuing jokes either weren't that funny the first time, or ran flat by the episode's end from overuse. The final act provided some salvation to the episode, with Hodges and Grissom bonding nicely over a game scenario. It may be coincidence, but this simplistic episode (it featured no new guest stars) very much felt like a script rushed to completion by a team of writers more worried about squeezing another story out before being forced to join the WGA strike than in actually making sure the story's quality was what show fans expect and deserve.
