Storyline

Nothing is as it seems when the CSIs are called in to investigate an apparent death in a hotel pool by electrocution. It turns out that the body is a dummy. The real crime scene is inside the hotel when an antique Japanese sword is stolen from an exhibition. As this investigation proceeds, the detectives will find that there are more deceptions in play. Another case involves the death of a teenage girl who's into the vampire cult. All the blood in her body has been sucked out. Written by Ploy P.

When Grissom confronts the casino owner, he states that it is extremely difficult to remove straps from bundles of money without tearing them. Not true. People who work in the banking industry take straps off and put them back on constantly (usually for verification counts). If you bend the bundle of money in half lengthwise, there is plenty of slack in the band to slide it off and back on again without tearing it. See more »

Good fun

2 stories here. The boilerplate witticism from Grissom (to kick into the titles) is quite good for this time round. Sara's hairstyle needs to go away (and indeed does so before the next episode) but that doesn't stop Grissom asking for duck/duct tape

I'm not particularly bothered about the Mikado. They cleverly put in incongruous references to Japanese history that a really sharp and viewer would recognize as incorrect. This story keeps springing surprises - possibly of a con-artist nature :)

The other story is a bit of an attempted spooky vampire story, again showing the weird side of Vegas. Might work for teenagers. The eventual villain is indeed a spooky person (did I recognize one of the serial murderers from season 4 episode one in this programme?) Another CSI cliché: lots of gorgeous people dancing around in PVC to bad music in a weird fetish club.

What I call the "science-is-cool music" scene - another CSI regular - consists of Nick using some highly improbable software to reconstruct somebody's face from a CCTV still.

Not bad at all, but not one of the best episodes.
