Did You Know?


It is highly unlikely to be electrocuted by jumper cables and a 12 volt battery as human skin can resist such low voltages. Also car battery voltage is DC direct current. 12 Volt DC is too low to cause harm. A much higher voltage (over 400 V DC) is needed. House voltage could electrocute, 110 volts AC alternating current. The jump leads shown would need to be connected to a domestic electricity outlet. This is never shown as we never know the locations. Car battery electrocution is a common script writer device.

Reggie Mastow: So, Max Paulson was innocent. I knew it was him. At least I thought I did. I betrayed the oath, Horatio. Killed a woman. You don't come back from that. Here I am thinking I'm doing the right thing, taking a murderer off the street, and I become the thing I despise the most.

An Excellent Episode With Good Twists
8 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very good episode, thanks in part to some unexpected developments late in the case, something I have not found too often in these shows. I doubt many, if any viewers, can figure this one out. I can't explain exactly why because I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen this CSI episode.

One thing for sure: although there isn't a lot of action, this kidnapping story is riveting and will keep your attention as dead bodies keep piling up and several CSI members are really wondering what the heck is going on! Some of their hunches seem a little far out, but some are right on the money, as it turns out.

Malik Yoba as "Reggie Mastow" was particularly interesting hard to figure out.Good episode.
