Goofs

After Gil and Catherine find the silver BMW in the shack, they open the trunk and find a body with a chunk missing from the back of its head. Gil says he doubts it is a suicide and reaches into the trunk and removes a crowbar. As he holds it up, he calls it a tire iron. The octagonal shape of the bar, the leverage curve and the v-notch on the working end are clearly visible. A tire iron has the flat opposite of the curved end, the flat doesn't have a notch, and the curve is a dog-leg instead of a U. This mistake is also repeated during the autopsy when Gil states "We found a tire iron at the scene..." See more »

Quotes

Gil Grissom: Abigail, I'm sure if there is something out there, looking down on us from somewhere else in the universe, they're wise enough to stay away from us.

Leaves A Bad Taste
5 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

A man and his wife are sleeping when their barking dog outside wakes them up. The man goes downstairs and discovers someone raiding his refrigerator. That guy races outside in the backyard where the husband sees a group - maybe 20 people, all very dirty-looking - standing there. They run off.

It turns out a body was left lying on the ground. The man has many, many injuries, too many to count. What happened to him? Who were all those people?

We see all kinds of strange scenes in this one-story episode, such a bombed-out car, another car with a body in the trunk, and most shocking: eleven recently-deceased bodies of young people lying in cots in an underground bunker. That's all part of a "Heaven's Gate"- type cult in which college age kids are recruited, believing some meteor shower is going to bring them to some kind of bliss in another world....or something like that.

The episode is interesting but too preachy, getting in a few religious cheap shots in here with numerous Biblical analogies.

Like the drink the kids took, this show left a bad taste my mouth.
