Leaves A Bad Taste In One's Mouth
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seems to me the title to this episode would have been more apt with the word "shredder" somehow in it, since that's what it deals with, unless the writers were thinking "bump off and grind up." Anyway, it begins with a very sick opening as some "chef" is torturing some poor soul and then forcing a fancy meal, which includes a cut-up credit card, an ear and assorted other objects you wouldn't want to swallow.

Soon, we find out that victim was then shot through the head and then put through one of those big shredding machines.

From that point, it's the usual who, what, how and why that the CSI team has to figure out, literally piece-by-piece. The only guy happy is Medical Examiner "Dr. Robbins" (Robert David Hall) who "loves a good challenge." Anyway, the story centers around something that affects us all: identify theft. It's an interesting episode.

In a side note: CSI boss "Ray Langston" receives a letter from prison. In it is just a kidney bean from "Nate Haskell." It shakes up the boss. Missing the previous season, I don't know the name but this "Haskell" must a very bad dude.
