Storyline

A corpse found roasted in a neighborhood party barbecue pit is identified as missing dentist Kurt Bissette. He had not only upset neighbors with his windmill and by nearly poisoning the gay couple's dog but probably was a blackmailer. Trey Johnson, the owners society's handsome young gardener, isn't the only one enjoying residents' infidelity, which isn't the only possible secret or motive either. Meanwhile young Parker seems worried about Booth's lack of female company. Sweets figures out why Arastoo faked his accent. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Hodgins asks Arastoo "How do you balance an archaic religious belief with a life devoted to science?" Hodgins would be aware: 1) that Islam is about 630 years less archaic than Christianity 2) that it was not until 1992 that the Roman Catholic Church accepted they'd really got it wrong in dealing with Galileo Galilei and his theories. 3) that it was in Arastoo's native area that mathematics started to evolve around 2000 years before Islam. I am suggesting that the error is in the use of the word "archaic". Hodgins would be happy to consider the correctness of any fact-based view of the world. See more »

Quotes

Arastoo Vaziri: [Irritated without Jordanian accent] I am a scientist! Okay? Just like the rest of you. I can deal! So please just back off and let me do my job!
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Wow.
Arastoo Vaziri: [With Jordian accent] I apologize for my outburst.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Oh, you aren't even going to try to unring that bell are you?
Arastoo Vaziri: [as he's leaving] I have to pray.

Murder on the Orient Express Revisited
17 November 2016 | by (Victoria, BC. Canada) – See all my reviews

The plot of this episode borrows from Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express crossed with Desperate Housewives. It revolves around a colourful set of characters living in a suburban cul de sac.

It had two gay characters, just in the mix, mildly comic but not derogatory. There is one male eye-candy character Trey the gardener also appealing to the gay viewer. I like it when gays are present without making a big deal of it.

There is one scene where a Muslim makes a claim that his religion is completely compatible with science. The characters on the show know nothing about Islam, so they just let this nonsense slide.

In the 1300s in Moorish Spain, there was a golden era of Islam. Pretty well all learning and scholarship in Europe was done by Muslims. Islam strongly encouraged science. Then fundamentalism and Quranic literalism swept Islam. Discoveries in science and math stopped. Islam started murdering anyone who did not swallow Creationism and other forms of Quranic literalism and magic thinking. Islam has been a pall over the earth ever since.
