Ryan can barely save Calleigh from burning in a house were arson is suspected.

Did You Know?


When Ryan tests the sprinkler head, the fusible element (the small red piece) is already missing. Sprinklers turn on when this piece melts and then applies water to only the areas where it is hot enough. This sprinkler would have gone off as soon as the water supply was turned on. See more »

An Insult To Us Viewers
27 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one was a little far out...... too far out.

Generally-speaking I've always loved this show, despite credibility gaps in stories and a few other things. I still do - but this episode was just plain stupid. When "Calleigh" is seeing and speaking to a "ghost," I could only shake my head in disgust.

Hey, I expect strange things on this entertaining CSI show but this was almost embarrassing watch. As the other reviewer wrote, it was like some amateur wrote the script. IMDb here lists Tamara Jaron and Melissa Scrivner of the writers of this episode.

I will say, however, that the ending was good. It did not have the normal PC that usually comes with today's TV shows.
