Storyline

The police investigate the murder of two Iranian-American college students who were killed in a convenience store. The shootings have all the earmarks of a hate crime as nothing was stolen and "Go Home" was written above them. The police soon realize that they have a kidnapping on their hands when they learn a third person was with them. The ransom demanded by the kidnapper - and his relationship to the kidnapped man - comes as a surprise. Crews also learns that Dani Reese, who was only 12-years old at the time of the Bank of LA robbery, also has a connection to that crime. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

(at around 21 mins) Charlie is shown pouring liquid onto one of the keyboards in the conference room, causing the computer to begin to act up. If you pour liquid on a keyboard it might fry the keyboard but would not have an effect on the computer or the monitor, especially if the actual computer is in another room, as we are told it is by the tech officer earlier in the show, when he says that he will set it up so they can access Amir's computer in the conference room.

Scenarists do really need to be more computer-literate.
14 June 2008 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Pff! It pisses me off.

I thought things like computer monitors exploding from hacker's attack are all in the past.

Yet this episode shows that a beer spilled on a keyboard causes monitor's image distortion and flickering. And not only that computer's monitor, but a neighbor monitor as well! Is it a kind of "infectious malfunction"? (By the way, this kind of malfunction CAN be produced on CRT monitor, only if damage applied to monitor's internals, but definitely this cannot be happening on LCDs, not by hardware damage).

For those who don't know: keyboard to computer is like remote to TV - if you crash remote you won't be able to control your TV, but that is all, no odd image distortions!!!

The other thing of this episode - secret database hidden behind a game

  • it is just ridiculous! Oh, theoretically one can make this trick. If
that person is a super-duper hacker/programmer. Do you imagine how much efforts it takes to actually decompose a solid application and merge into it a stand-alone commercial database engine? And every time he wants to look into his database he must spend few hours to reach level 10?

I am software engineer myself and I tell you: It is much easier to use a simple password check, than build a monstrous system which can be bypassed by just any teen around.

It seems that the scenarists were in prison for ...how many years?
