I Love These 'Miniature Killer' Stories!
22 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another veteran of the big screen, Kathleen Quinlan, makes an appearance here on CSI. I'd couldn't think of her name for the longest time but she has a recognizable face. You'll know her when you see her. CSI had been attracting some big-name, veteran film actors this season.

The most interesting "guest," however, was Lionel Dell/Mitch Doulgas, played by a an odd-looking Brendan Fletcher. Man, this guy had "serial killer" written all over his face, plus attitude, but that's doesn't mean he was the killer. His dad was considered the "The Miniautre Killer," who was caught and then shot his brains out on tape for the CSI workers. However, weeks later another box is on Gil Grissom's desk and clues in it suggest the next killing - unlike the others - is going to be in the future. CSI workers have a couple of days to figure out what room this is, and how to catch the man. Apparently, the elder Mr. Dell was not the killer, but a man covering for someone he loved.

What happens is pretty improbable, but it makes for great theater and I've really enjoyed this long-running (four or five episodes this season) tale of "The Miniature Killer."

Whoever thought up these 'Miniature' stories should be considered for an Emmy.
