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

Environmental Propaganda
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was basically an environmental agenda episodes with a company "fracking" and not being careful enough to monitor the quality of water in the area. People in this small rural area outside Las Vegas are getting sick and are dying from the water. A local editor of a weekly rag is one step away from proving her case printing it in her newspaper.

With two violent deaths come investigations from the CSI team as they try and put two-and-two together on what or who is causing these deaths and why these people died. It appears they were about to blow the whistle on this company which was poisoning the local water supply.

Along the way, we learn what the term "fracking" means.....if CSI had that correct.

Overall, however, as what happens when you bring an agenda to the table, it gets overwrought with the points you are trying to make. How they handled the character of the newspaper editor, and Ray Langston's responses to her, is Exhibit A.
