Storyline

Things get off to a hot start when a prisoner under interrogation tries to force his way out of the police station. When pepper spray doesn't stop him, he is tasered but he bursts into flame. The autopsy also reveals that he has green blood. When others are brought into to the morgue with green blood, the CSI team is able to trace a common thread running through all of the victims and a homemade drug all of them were using.

Quotes

Wendy Simms: What do you think turned it green?
Hodges: It might be sulfur.
Wendy Simms: Sulfur is a naturally occurring component of blood.
Hodges: But in massive doses, it tends to turn blood a blackish, avocado green. When the sulfur atom attaches to the hemoglobin molecule, it turns green. Which is why First Officer Spock's blood is green in Star Trek.
Wendy Simms: No, it's not.
Hodges: Yes, it is. Trust me, I'm an expert.
Wendy Simms: Well, apparently not, because otherwise you would surely know that the oxidizing agent in Vulcan blood is copper and that is why ...

A Totally-Insane (But Fun) Episode
24 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so many wacky, insane things in this episode, I wouldn't know where to start.

Suffice to say, this show continues people with green blood, a deer killed with a crossbow and then having a skirt put on it; a lady who wears tinfoil and says she communicates with aliens, a 60-some year old married couple who die in their sleep in the same night but aren't murdered; a ultra-violent drunk who is beats up several officers at police headquarters, is pepper-sprayed and then tasered and then bursts into flames and dies.

In addition, there are lawnfuls of dead squirrels at the old folks place and at their welder/sculptor neighbor's, who is a woman who is flaky......and then there is the big story about brutal migraines and what they are doing to some of the above-mentioned people.

Among the wacky, sad to say, are the three usual CSI suspects: the ludicrous "Hodges,"Wendy," and "David." The latter, the assistant ME, is brought to tears over a dead animal but is never upset at a human being killed. Another CSI worker, the female who wears glasses ("Mandy?"), tells Hodges he'd better stop living with his mom if he wants a girl, meaning her. There is a lot more, but why spoil it? At the end of the show, Grissom gives his "Theory of Everything" which could possibly tie all the bizarre events together. His New Age speech all being tied together by some invisible string is utterly laughable, but he's serious and all his CSI subordinates seem to nod in agreement. Man, these "scientists" will anything about the universe, except about a God, of course.

None of the three CSI shows gets as bizarre as this one has done the last three years. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's insultingly-stupid but it's usually pretty interesting. Never a dull moment in Las Vegas, I guess, especially when you have wackos as the good guys and the bad guys!
