Did You Know?


Ryan touches the computer they are examining says that it is running hot. He removes the side cover to find out why. The processor fan is completely plugged with paper. Ryan says that this is why the hard drive is so hot. The case fans would still be running so only the processor would overheat and not the hard drive. For this reason it is also doubtful you could feel any abnormal heat by touching the case. With the blockage they show, the CPU could not operate for more than a couple of minutes before it is either completely destroyed or heat protection would cause it to shut down. See more »


Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Look at this high-velocity spatter right here. And more interesting is this.
Eric Delko: That's a partial print. It's a little low on the wall, isn't it?
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Whoever did this slipped in the blood, and then attempted to break their fall with that print.
Eric Delko: Well, the print's on top of the spatter.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: Means the blood had time to dry.
Eric Delko: Gives us a timeline.
Lieutenant Horatio Caine: We are to believe, Eric, that this kid killed this woman, waited for the spatter to dry, and then slipped and fell in the blood pool.

Liberal Bias Lives On
12 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's a manhunt underway around one of the marinas. A young black guy, "Tobey Hollins," (Robert Richard) with blood all over him, dashes out of the bushes and is chased and finally caught.

"Capt. Frank Tripp" (Rex Linn) has the young man arrested. The kid confesses, Frank is satisfied, but Horatio, after a quick look-see back at the boat in which a young lady was killed, is not so sure they have the right person in custody.

This is another age-old storyline among the CSI shows. The PC-oriented Jerry Bruckmeier shows tend to lean that way, so you know the black kid is innocent. Then, the investigation is on for the CSI team to see who really did kill this woman aboard a boat and how.

To complicate matters, while in jail, the "Tobey" kills his sadistic cell-mate. And - oh, yes, he's a white guy, of course. In fact, only the white inmates are shown to be beasts to the black kid. The reverse racism of white Liberals in the entertainment business never ends!

Nonetheless, despite the typical bias, it's a decent show and a "thought- provoking" ending
