Trivia

The original air date of this episode, which involves a murder on a college campus, was delayed a full year in the wake of the tragic mass shooting at Virginia Tech on April 16th, 2007. Incidentally, something very similar happened to star David Boreanaz, almost exactly eight years earlier when an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) titled "Earshot," which involved a school shooting plot, was postponed following the tragedy at Columbine High.

Goofs

This episode was originally supposed to air a year earlier, but was postponed due to the tragic events at Virgina Tech. As a result Jack Hodgin's hair is noticeably longer (like his hair in the previous season) than the episodes surrounding this one revealing it is out of order See more »

Squeeze play
28 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B investigate the remains of a star college basketball player found crushed to death under the bleachers in the college gym. But was he dead before or after the bleachers were closed? It gets worse: the player apparently was on steroids. Brennan gets an introduction to the world of jocks and a side of college she certainly never experienced. Not much frivolity here. There's a side angle involving the sexual antics of the students, which eventually leads to the solution. Not one of my favorite episodes. But for those who decide to watch it, remember blue lipstick. And you get to see Brennan showing a maternal side when she finds a nest of baby rats inside the corpse's body.
