The whole premise of the bass player being shocked by 220 volts is unlikely. 220 requires 3 conductors and the ground prong on the plug was cut off. If his amplifier was connected to 220 volts it would have quickly burned up. Since it is amperage and not voltage that is life threatening 220 is not usually more hazardous than 110. The way to shock him would have been cut the ground and reverse the 110 volt prongs. The story that Dr. Robbins told about Yardbirds's singer Keith Relf being electrocuted is true. In 1974 new regulations required outlets to be polarized with one blade of the plug wider. Older amplifiers had a polarity switch to both reduce shock hazard and hum. Performers would often wet their finger and tap other equipment to test if everything was synchronized. See more »

Country music, CIA, and CSI all on CBS
5 March 2010 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Rascal Flatts fans probably love this episode and seeing the guys perform, one gets hurt, flirts with Catherine and can't remember being a country music singer. Very light, funny story, and all is well in the end when who you suspect as the bad guy is the bad guy. The obsessive fan is truly comic relief. We learn Nick doesn't have to like country music just because he is from Texas, and Doc Robbins knows his guitars. Second "B" story, Langston and Sara work the death of a retired CIA big shot who is found in Lake Mead, canoe missing. We hear a comment about Grissom and Sara's honeymoon and a canoe. Of course the CIA comes in, as do the bad guy Germans, the story takes more directions than a squid and then they find Sarin, and Langston knows all the answers before anyone else, meets with the CIA guy who seems to know Langston's dad in the past. While this episode wasn't a complete wash,it doesn't hold up to writing from past seasons. Too much of Langston and his vast knowledge of everything. Rascal Flatts was enjoyable,Jorja Fox is lovely, but the CIA-German-son connection was a real stretch. The CIA guy offers Langston a job, let's hope he takes it.
