Chad Bowen survives, unlike beach volley ball mates Troy Billings, Randal and Peter Markham, a massive current suddenly electrocuting them during the wealthy Dean and Hailey Collins's annual beach volleyball tournament. The boys had little in common, except one night stands with a single cougar, who turns out the mother of one's steady girlfriend. IAB Lieutenant Rick Stetler concludes the investigation to determine whether Eric Delko can be reinstated or Calleigh must be removed with him. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


During the investigation a golf club shaft is found under a lawnmower. The shaft is determined to have been used as a lightning rod. After the lightning bolt hits the lightning rod, part of it is shown to be knocked off. But at most it would have flown a couple of hundred feet and landed on the beach. Not the thousands of feet it would have had to fly to land in the residential yard. See more »


Det. Frank Tripp: I don't say this very often, but I think I found a lightning rod.

The clincher
2 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was actually the show that made me lose all interest in the series. A fanciful, nonsensical plot, wooden acting and none of the staples that make CSI Miami actually watchable sometimes. Don't get me wrong; I like DC As HC, but his is a character in need of a decent television show. The makers of the show assume all viewers are dumb with 3 second memories. They also have little faith that their plot or dialog are interesting enough to capture the audience, so they throw in a million lens flares, out-of focus shots, cameras passing windows and glass cabinets, and by-the-numbers show pacing.

It's a real shame, because my recollection of the early years is that it was a good show and DC actually had some stuff to do, rather than just turn up, phone-in some lines and do the sunglasses thing.

I am sure plenty of people will disagree, but this has turned me off the show for now. I await the return of the original series to Australian TV.
