Jeremy Fordham
Alan Solner (as Dondre T. Whitfield)
Dr. Trevor Valone
Javier Ravez


Alissa Valone, an advertising agency's rich workaholic president, was murdered with a golf club, not hers given the size, in her home, where devout Latino Catholic Eric Delko tells Ryan to do the scene because he respects the Christian elements in the Santeria form of voodoo she practices, there's even a real goat's head. DNA from skin under her fingernails points to Ed Smith, whose trial for a gold robbery starts the next day. Using blowfish poison tetrodotoxine, used as zombie power in Santeria, Ed faked his death and was carried into the morgue, where Ryan now fears to go mad as he saw him rise from the slab and the poison on the stretcher numbs his hands. Alissa's boyfriend Jeremy Fordham lies about buying the poison with her -he was seen with her- or placing the small coffin near her, but claims to believe it must be burned or it causes another death. Alissa's ex, Dr. Trevor Valone, admits he signed Smith's fake death certificate to help stage his friend's death but denies a deal... Written by KGF Vissers

Aw, Curses!
4 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Do you play golf, Trevor?

"Yeah. Is that illegal or something?

"No, but killing your wife is!"

Doesn't that sound like so many kind of lines you hear on the CSI programs when they interview several suspects each show? I almost never hear someone questioned from a CSI man or woman, who answers to them respectfully. They are always punks, male or female, young or old, white or black. Every week you see a stream of suspects you want to slap in the face!

Anyway, we have a dead woman lying on the floor in a house, probably killed with some blunt force object. She has a little toy coffin placed on top of her. What is that all about? Apparently, some voodoo-type thing as Eric and Ryan find a nearby closet with a goat's head. Eric says it's some voodoo curse and since he's Catholic, he doesn't want to touch it. Gee, I hope all Catholics don't believe that nonsense.

This is one of the corniest shows I've seen, with all the manipulations regarding the voodoo (real one minute, fake the next, back and forth) but it was still entertaining and, once again, fantastically photographed and computerized. The night shots at the cemetery were absolutely stunning. The incredible colors on this TV show amaze me every week.
