November 23, 2006: Road Pizza Season 7, Episode 9

"Mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. Whoooooo!" Gobble gobble everybody. For those of you outside of the celebrating country, you really are missing out on a wonderful day. This tryptophan is going to let me get a great night sleep. I wish the day didn't have to end but it does, so what better way than with an entertaining CSI. Let me say it up front and get it out of the way now. If CBS was going to show a repeat next week, then why not push the new episode off of Thanksgiving Day and show it 7 days from now instead? Shame on TV programmers for putting new shows on a holiday. Anyway, overall this was a fun show with some great acting, some funny moments and some of the cheesiest scenes of the season. It started out with those silly moments with the bad news station graphics and the barely audible Mexican guy claiming to have found the car of legendary Las Vegas mob boss, Mickey Dunn. And after the guy in the wheelchair got pushed into the street, Brass calls it a "homicide related road pizza" and Grissom chimes in with "who ordered it?" Cheesy!! But Brass killed me reading back the statements of the drunk people in the car, "dude goes bam...we go ahhhh." Funny moment. (Side note: One of the great things about CSI was always the line said right before the opening tune kicks in. In past seasons they were almost always quite amusing or quite cynical from Grissom's perspective. This season, they've been really boring for the most part and this one was just dumb. I really used to love those lines for some reason and I wish they would start getting better again.) A really cool moment was when the photographer was in the morgue and Dr. Robbins kicked his butt all over the place. The doc can sing and he can kick ass - this is my kind of dude. The way the killings happened was a little predictable. Once you saw the picture show up on the first dead guy, you knew the others were going to bite it too and the pictures would show up on them as well. But it played out in an entertaining way. It turns out Mickey Dunn never died the night he disappeared. But he's found out that the bullet he has in him has shifted and he's got one week to live. So he decides to play his own little game and wack all the people that tried to kill him back in the day because he'll die without going to jail. He makes himself into a karaoke drunk, a black woman and one of the guys he just murdered and leads the cops on a crazy chase to get him. The greatest part about all of this is when he pulls off the last face to reveal himself as the legend - by golly it's Roger Daltrey! The Who front man turns in an Emmy worthy guest spot (if you ask me) as the mob boss. When he was being interrogated and said the bones couldn't show that "when I smashed his face in, I enjoyed it" that was the scene I'm going to expect to be shown before he wins the award for this great cameo. How great was it too, that Catherine played her own little game with him, by not telling him until the full story came out that the doctors had removed the bullet. Excellent work. Finally, Cat found out her dad protected her from some underage activity with Dunn decades earlier. Since we rarely hear anything good about the late Sam Braun, that was interesting. However, I don't even want to address how she was "hot and ready" for Mickey at only 16 years old. If I start talking about that, I fear my computer will be tapped into by those predator catching guys. Listen up Stone Phillips, you got nothin' on me! Until December 7th, friends. show less

Premise: Las Vegas criminologists use scientific methods to solve grisly murders in this unusually graphic (and hugely popular) drama, which inspired a host of other cop-show 'procedurals.'
