Did You Know?


The ME's statement about the lighter color bone marrow on the victim due to radiation for leukemia is incorrect. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood and therefore radiation is not part of the treatment regimen. See more »


Detective Frank Tripp: You've racked up no less than nine complaints from your neighbors about early morning ruckus.
Steven Corbett: And every one of those was rejected. I abide by the city regs. My workers don't start till eight a.m. Besides, both my next door neighbors party till four in the morning. Nobody does anything when I complain about that noise.
Detective Frank Tripp: So you decided to throw one of your neighbors into the wood chipper?
Steven Corbett: What?
Steven Corbett: Yeah, in the middle of the day.

A Fun Episode That Lives Up To Its Great Title
31 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great title to this episode, since it involves plastic surgery and a man who goes through a big wood-chipper and is chopped to small pieces quickly.

It's another one of these bizarre cases with some strange people. Wait a minute - that sounds like every episode. Oh, well, it keeps things interesting. Doing that here is a woman who's had so much plastic surgery she looks like a freak....and knows it. She's one of the suspects since it was her doctor who was shredded.

There are other suspects, of course, and it's a puzzle down to the end on who killed the plastic surgeon. Overall, a fun case even if a lot of things made no sense.

Adding to the fun was the return of "Ron Saris," who was thought dead in an explosion in prior episode. The old nemesis is now working on the side of the law but Horatio has his doubts - this guy is just too evil to change. With his scarred face, "Saris" looks more deadly than ever and his character is played well by actor Kim Coates.
