Three Hits Or Four?
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A homicide, a suicide and an accident, all in one shift. All the CSI people need now is a natural death and they have "hit for the cycle." That's a baseball term for a player hitting a single, double, triple and homer all in the same game.

The CSI personnel wage money on whether they can hit for that cycle or not. There are numerous bets made and numerous fatalities. We go through all of them, so each story is fairly short.

Mixed into the story in an extremely-obnoxious young ME intern from Los Angeles, who winds up figuring into the betting pool.

Did they hit the cycle? You'll have to watch. It's like watching a long fly ball and wondering, "Is it fair or is it foul?"
