Storyline

During a photo shoot, a model discovers a human ear along with its body's frozen remains. Inside the remains are some gold flakes and a fragment of a meteor. The meteor was kept in a space research center, lead by Landis Collar, who was the boss of the victim, physicist Diane Sidman. Other possible suspects are her graduate students, Milton Alvaredo and Jennifer Keating, plus Diane's lovers, including direct superior and successor as research periodical editor, Dr. Christopher Beaudette. Diane's corpse shows a confusing history shortly before and after her mysterious death. Meanwhile, Angela's father comes to town to exact revenge from Hodgins and teach him a lesson.

ZZ and Me
18 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A frozen corpse broken into too many pieces to count has B&B chasing down a bunch of egghead scientists at a Frankenstein-type lab. Radioactive poisoning also figures into the plot. Muhych more interesting is the arrival of Angela's dad, played by one of the ZZ Top boys, who has come to do some mischief to poor Hodgins, for taking advantage of Daddy's Little Girl. Nothing can dissuade the guy, least of all a plea from good old Sweets. The ending, with everyone gathered at their favorite watering hole except for Hodgins is priceless. Without giving it away, let's say Hodgins finds himself far, far away from that watering hole, or any watering hole, for that matter. ZZ Dad gets to play a few licks for all us aging fans.
