A badly-burned corpse turns out to belong to an underground street luge racer, and the DNA of a man already in prison is found on a dead body discovered in a new high-tech public toilet.
Did You Know?
In the teaser, a man dressed as an astronaut is found dead. Before the cut to the title sequence, Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise
) intones, "Houston, we have a problem." This is the famous misquote ("Houston, we've had a problem") spoken by CSM pilot Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon
) and mission commander Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks
) in Ron Howard's Apollo 13
(1995). Sinise played grounded CSM pilot Ken Mattingly in that film. See more
The astronaut's mission patch found on the luge racer's outfit is incorrect in two respects. First, it refers to the mission as "Mercury 3"; the mission was known as either "Mercury-Redstone 3" (MR3) or by the capsule's name, "Freedom 7". Second, the patch worn by Alan Shepard was a square black patch with no pictures, just the Legend "Freedom 7" embroidered in white. See more
