Did You Know?


When the lawyer says the female suspect "has a twin brother and juries hate twins," this only applies in the case of identical twins, who would, by definition, be of the same gender. Fraternal twins, whether the same or opposite gender, have completely different DNA, because they're just as different from each other as siblings born at different times. See more »

A motorcycle racer turns up dead, and this leads B&B to investigate the world of motorcycle racing. A second death only compounds matters. Wings Hauser is the guest star, for those who may remember good old Wings from his B-movie days in the 1980s. Wings also appeared on an episode of HOUSE awhile back, and his son is current B-movie actor Cole Hauser. It's pretty obvious who did the dirty deeds early on, but that's OK. As dreary as some of these episodes get (like the whole Angela-Hodgins courtship storyline), it's always fun to watch B&B in action. For any kids watching this show, the motorcycle angle will certainly appeal to them.
