Goofs

When Grissom is investigating Hodges' "death", Hodges states that the pager used in the zip gun is a pre-1990s pager that does not have a display for a call back number, but during the replay of how the zip gun works, the pager shown has a display and a Las Vegas area code number is shown on the display.

Goofy 'Hodges' And His Hypothetical Crime Game
24 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give this an "A" for "originalty" but only a "C-minus" for content. It just isn't that involving an episode, because there are too many factors involved in too many cases.

All of the crime stories in here are "what if" stuff, made, as it turns out, to be in the form of a CSI table game that "Hodges" is inventing. He creates scenarios in which various CSI "lab rats" are knocked off. The idea is to why out the answers to the two basic questions: "who did it, and how?" Most of this is played for humor but I found very few laughs in here. I've never found the "lab rates" - Hodges, Wendy, Archie, Mandy, Bobby, Henry, etc., to be particularly good comics, only weird, unrealistic CSI "scientists." Thus, for the most part, with three or four different cases presented with new clues every 15 seconds, it wasn't an entertaining episode in which you get involved with what's going on.

However, despite saying the above, I did enjoy the last segment when Grissom sits down with Hodges and says, "I like games." He's asked to try and figure out another hypothetical crime, this one in which Hodges gets shot in the middle of the forehead at the lab. That part is pretty cool, with a few funny scenes to it.

Overall, half good/half terrible. Hodges (Wallace Langham) did an excellent job as the creator of this game and the host of the show, to to speak.
