The Acheson-Curtis farmhouse, said to be located "about 20 miles outside 'Larkston,' NV," where the episode is set, (along with the Finch farmhouse,) is not only / actually used repeatedly---for the Acheson-Curtis farmhouse, twice [more] come to mind "off the top of my head," and the Finch farmhouse comes to mind a total of four times (the most notable differences are the porches and size of each house)---on the show 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,' but it's also the same farmhouse where "Night of Desirable Objects," was set, although it's then said to be located in "rural Pennsylvania," [and the inside layout of the house is different in every episode of CSI, and is different again on] Season 2, Episode 2 of the hit Fox sci-fi show, 'Fringe,' (where it's the once-family home of the now-alone Mr. Hughs)!

When Catherine is checking the cow cookie jar at the lab, her phone starts to ring. When she checks to see who it is and the camera shows the phone, the sound profile is set to vibrate, not ring, but we still hear the ringing sound. See more »


Warrick Brown: Hey, Griss. So Hodges told me that you're flying the coop. What's the matter, you sick of babysittin'?
Gil Grissom: Just the opposite, I'm a teacher with no students.
Warrick Brown: I've still got a lot to learn. And besides, having you around kinda keeps me honest.
Gil Grissom: Whether you know it or not, you're the rock of my team. Catherine's gonna be in charge for a while, while I'm gone. Just be there for her like you've been there for me and it'll all be fine.
Warrick Brown: Thanks man, that means a lot. You know I got you covered.

Justice, Especially For Catherine
18 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a predictable story but nonetheless a fast-moving one that was still fun to watch. You knew "Catherine" was going to get her justice in the end, especially when they portrayed the defense attorney as a scumbag.

Catherine and Nick go to a small town to investigate a murder than might lead to implicating an obviously-guilty guy set free by that aforementioned attorney. The best part of that long segment is Catherine using her sexuality as a means of getting crucial information from an inmate.

Meanwhile, series star "Gil Grisson" (William Petersen) is going on a four-week sabbatical back East to teach some boring subject about pond mosquitoes. He assigns Catherine to take over for him while he's gone. There is a short funny scene with "Nick Stokes" (George Eads) who thinks his boss is leaving for good.

There also is an interesting ending involving another "miniature." Does that mean the man arrested recently is not the real killer? I guess that story will be continued when Gil gets back.
