The team expects bloody murder after Nate's escape, but in stead two 'corpses' seem resurrected, in Max Ferris's case even during 'autopsy'. The crucial factor is a natural toxins combination, not unlike voodoo-zombie-powder. This and the subjects' identity all lead to retired professor Dr. Aden, who used it in secret 1970s near-death research for the Pentagon. Written by KGF Vissers

The Counter-Culture Actor Back In A Familiar Role
17 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember the old, whacked out hippie from the old TV series, "WKRP In Cincinnati?" He was played by Howard Hesseman. Thirty years later, Hesseman is still playing that role....at least in this episode.

This time he's a raving, lunatic ex-professor who worked on a project in which people can go into other worlds, or heaven, or wherever they wish. As usual it's a hard lesson he and others use when they try to play God. Two people wind up dead and Hesseman ("Dr. Aden") wind up mentally screwed up big-time. The cool part was in the beginning when one of the kids was pronounced dead and then gets up and walks out of the medical examiner's room. Assistant "David Phillips" (David Berman) passes out from the shock!

Once in awhile - a couple of times each season - CSI (Las Vegas) goes way off the deep end on some stories. This is one of them.
