Trivia

In the teaser, a man dressed as an astronaut is found dead. Before the cut to the title sequence, Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) intones, "Houston, we have a problem." This is the famous misquote ("Houston, we've had a problem") spoken by CSM pilot Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and mission commander Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) in Ron Howard's Apollo 13 (1995). Sinise played grounded CSM pilot Ken Mattingly in that film. See more »

Goofs

The astronaut's mission patch found on the luge racer's outfit is incorrect in two respects. First, it refers to the mission as "Mercury 3"; the mission was known as either "Mercury-Redstone 3" (MR3) or by the capsule's name, "Freedom 7". Second, the patch worn by Alan Shepard was a square black patch with no pictures, just the Legend "Freedom 7" embroidered in white. See more »

Quotes

Detective Don Flack: [Referring to the public toilet a woman drowned in]
[to Mac]
Detective Don Flack: Put it this way: If a dishwasher and a Port-a-Potti were to ever mix it up, this thing would be their offspring.

Fire & Water
22 November 2008 | by (Lockport, NY, United States) – See all my reviews

A man dressed like an astronaut from the Alan Shephard days is found dead after his burning body smashed into a vehicle while traveling 80 miles per hour! What is that all about? Well, it's about "street luges," and setting speed records on them while also catching on fire, with a couple of zealous races.

The second story also has a strange angle. Some new public state-of-the-art port-o-potty available in the city gives up a dead woman after a lady had deposited her coins in the slot and tried to enter. When she opened the door, gallons of water, and a dead female, came pouring out into the street. The woman had cuts all over her arms but the medical examiner said the cause of death was drowning. How did all that water can in there and why wouldn't she have opened the door and left? This is another bizarre case, made even stranger when DNA from a prisoner still in jail, is underneath the victim's fingernails.

One of these cases turns out to be just an accident while another is a murder.
