Ken Billings


The CSI team is confronted in a short time with a series of corpses from the past, or rather two: several members of a crime syndicate from the sixties, and people associated with them. There are pictures on the scenes showing persons together, and several aliases all are taken from or based on characters from horror movies such as the Nightmare on Elm Street, Jason or Scary Movie cycles. A mysterious photographer takes pictures in the morgue but Dr. Al Robbins notices he's only pretending to be new on staff. It seems the killer assumed many identities using professional disguises and may be former cop Eddie Sanchez who stole a fortune from the mobsters... Written by KGF Vissers

Art imitating art. Badly.
17 October 2008 | by (Luoyang, China) – See all my reviews

Yes, there is no denying it. This episode is enormously disappointing. I don't mean to offend anyone, but I'm genuinely surprised to see such glowing reviews of this episode. I happen to be one of the few people who have seen every single episode of CSI up to this point, and when I saw this one just a few minutes ago I was so struck by how bad it is that I almost couldn't believe what I was seeing.

It's not that the episode is bad entertainment, it's just that by this point, after six and a half years of watching the show and getting to know the characters so well, it's so strange to see them stumbling around clueless in what has to be their most obvious case ever.

While you can't predict the exact ending from the first scene, the fact that all of the CSIs were looking at these pictures of "different" killers in cheap, dime-store Halloween make-up and never guessing that it might be the same person was ridiculous in the extreme. The leaps of logic that we've seen them all make in the past make no sense when they fail to see something so blatantly obvious right under their noses.

And what about the names from horror movies? They keep getting names of witnesses like Mike Meyers and F. Krueger and Pamela Voorhees. I don't know why this was thrown into the show. No one gets it until they get F. Krueger, then the CSIs sit around wondering about that last one until one of them mentions that Pamela was the killer in the original Friday. He even remembered that it was the question Drew Barrymore got wrong in Scream. Wow, great puzzle. It took them entire SECONDS to figure it out!

I've noticed that season 7 took a huge leap for the better as far as interesting and unique episodes, but make no mistake, this is not one of them...
