During Derby Chasen's autopsy, you can see a large bruise on the lower left side of his ribcage. Later on, we find out that Broxton Langley caused the bruise by hitting Derby Chasen with a potato ricer. However, he hit Derby on the upper right side of Derby's chest. Then Derby grabs his chest where he was hit, but he switches back and forth with his left hand grasping his upper right chest and his right hand grasping at his upper left chest. At no time, does he ever grasp at his lower left side where the bruise was originally seen. See more »

Now That's A Gourmet Meal!
16 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Five hundred dollars for a take-out meal? Well, for some guys it is worth it because, instead of a meal, inside the food take-out container, they get address to go and enjoy a night out with a beautiful hooker.

Meanwhile, the head chef as this operation winds up getting blown up in his own gourmet food truck. Was there an unhappy customer, or was it personal by a previous business partner or a jealous street vendor across the street? A few twists and turns make this one hard to figure out until the very end.

In a short subplot story we see CSI's "Sheldon Hawkes" (Hill Harper) getting mixed up with a beautiful and making the wrong choices. He could be in big trouble. That part is a little annoying to watch because we think Sheldon is smarter than this. However, it's a fact women like that can turn the best of men into fools.
