7 May 2008 | by (Sundsvall, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Just when I thought this show couldn't get any better.

This episode is among the best there is! The CSI-like effects and style were awesome. I laughed so hard every time. And even a cameo from George Eads :)

I hope there will be more of these "parody-episodes" 'cause it's hilarious. Maybe not more parodies of CSI, but there's plenty of shows out there just waiting to be parodied.

I don't understand people who bash this episode of being a crossover. Is it supposed to be serious? No. Then don't take it seriously. Just try to have a good time.
