Zombies Walk in Vegas

8/10
Author: stevp from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When two supposedly dead bodies come back to life, the team discovers a 30 year old science program at a university that dealt in bizarre aspects of science. Guest star former WKRP DJ Howard Hessemen plays a retired discredited professor that led the project. But some modern day students have discovered his work in an old lab and are trying to make one of his experiments a reality. Meanwhile, the fallout of Nate Haskell's escape haunts Langston.

Reviewer's Comment: My only issue with this episode is that it feels like a ripoff of 'Fringe'. The old slightly weird scientist, the lab that has been locked up for a long time, the bizarre experiments, the unforeseen results, all feel like a Fringe episode. They even have a metal, water filled sensory deprivation tank in the lab. Just a bit too much for any fan of Fringe.

The Counter-Culture Actor Back In A Familiar Role

7/10
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
