Suck On This.

The CSI's are called in to investigate a body in a pool that turns out to be a CPR dummy and then they find out a priceless sword has been stolen. Or has it...or is it? This has all the great mystery of CSI with a good dose of humor. The look on Nick's face when he trys to print the recovered sword and ends up taking a chunk of it is great. The only thing that mars this episode is the other half of it. Catherine and Warrick investigate the death of a young girl who has had all of the blood drained out of her. It turns out she is one of "the lonely ones" or a vampire wannabe. With all the vials of blood, sharp incisors, and silly names, I thought I was watching an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer without any laughs. But back to the suckers, it's a jaunty good time that deserved it's own episode.

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.
