Maybe the finest CSI episode of all
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm just watching series 7 again. I know what happens, I know this isn't the last word on the miniature killer...

...but I was still spellbound. This episode contains so much, it's hard to believe they fit it into a single programme. There is tragedy, comedy, tragicomedy, black humour, horror, mystery, philosophy, suspense.


Anyway, there is a surprise confession to the miniature killers. It is both eloquent and painful to watch. There are parts of what the person says that I find myself not-so-secretly agreeing with, in my middle aged cynicism:

"My life's been hard, but I don't complain. I never expected better. ... Spend any amount of time around people, you get your heart broke. Treachery, hypocrisy. Promise of love. Look into the mouth of a person, and you'll find lies wriggling there like maggots waiting to grow wings. The world has gone mad"

And then the chilling last words - with which, of course, I do not sympathise...:

"A man could kill from sunup to sunset, and still his work would never be done"

...but as we learn later in the series, all is not what it seems. Series 7 of CSI is awesome.
