    I was surprised at this show. I think it was clever to use the game Grand Theft Auto in its storlyine. The whole episode was a decent ripoff of CSI. I thought it was nice to have real world twist on the standard crime scene. Overall its clear that the show will probably be canced but i must commend it for the decent showing it made last night. It was my first time watching it and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Its not absolutely must see tv but when you look at your choices for friday night tv, its a decent one.moreless

The second is 25 to Life a cops and robbers simulator which was controversial for rewarding players points for killing police.

    • The song that played at the end of the episode is called "Different Names For The Same Things" by Death Cab for Cutie and may be found on their newest album Plans.

    • This episode is very similar to the real life events that took place when a then 18 year old shot and killed two cops and one civillian. His motive: he claimed he was inspired by Grand Theft Auto 3, a controversial video game for Playstation 2.
