Storyline

In desert town Cable Springs, skinny dipping teenagers are surprised by the corpse of local petty rancher Walter Burns. He was dumped after drowning elsewhere. the only car traces lead to the corpse in Las Vegas of natural gas company Conservo's engineer Richard Adams, who was hot and hidden in a dumpster. the trail leads back to Burns' neighbor Bill Gibson, who commits suicide in a spectacularly surprising way, desperate because of extreme pollution, most likely the result of Conservo's 'fracking'. All three had contact with the local one woman-newspaper maker. Written by KGF Vissers

In addition, Rosalind asks Langston if he's familiar with "fracking", and he comments that it sounds like a sci-fi curse word.

The single worst episode in CSI history. What happened.
12 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The single worst episode in CSI history. What happened. I'm the only one left in my home still willing to watch CSI. With this episode I leave as well. I can't believe it was written by the show's creator. The writing is so overwrought that it reminds me of the sort of thing one finds in student written high school plays. I have sat through a few, much better written than this.

My only hope is that Zuiker had to step in the last moment and just couldn't save this mess. The only other result is that no one was willing to tell him how it read.

I hope they cancel this show before they ruin the legacy of the first great nine years.

Btw your spell checker rejects csi unless capitalized
