Head on a stick
26 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young Japanese woman is killed and mutilated in a particularly unsavory fashion, and B&B are soon on the case. The dead girl's brother, an old friend of Booth's, flies in from Japan to find out what happened. Accompanying the brother is a renowned forensic scientist, and one of the lighter moments in the episode has the team wondering whether this scientist is a man or woman, as he/she sports an androgynous look. As episodes go, this is a low-energy show and too much time goes by filled with padding. The body of the dead girl is delightful, as it was subtract in a pond for a bit of time. So gorehounds will have something to keep them awake, at least.
