You Oughta Be In Pictures Season 8, Episode 5

Episode Recap: Chick Chop Flick ShopDid anyone else feel like tonight's episode was a day late and a dollar short? I mean, literally a day late? It's November now. I've gotten all of the spooks and ghosts and oozy things out of my system. I've moved on to turkey and pie and general overeating. So I would much rather have seen this week's episode last week, when we all had to suffer through a rerun! (Down with reruns!)And instead of spoofing bad horror movies, which is what I think the writers were going for, it just felt like a bad horror movie. A really bad horror movie.Of course, these aren't just any horror movies. They're porn horror movies, and we start out watching a beautiful young woman (and a dwarf and a circus freak) strung up in some kind of tiled room while blood is being sprayed on them rather sloppily. But, no, the beautiful young woman isn’t the victim. In fact, we never see her again. (Thankfully.)The victim is a blonde star—odd, since, as Sara points out, ... read more

Carpe Diem Season 8, Episode 4

Episode Recap: “The Case of the Cross-Dressing Carp"Wow! As you all know from reading my preview item, I did not see this coming! Especially because of Michael Ausiello’s scoop — Jorja Fox is still leaving, though she may flit in and out of CSI kingdom from time to time. But despite all of that, when Grissom popped the question, Sara said yes!Let me tell you, I heart this proposal. Heart heart heart! Spontaneous declarations of love are always better than scripted, pre-thought out speeches, don’t you think? I haven’t always been on board with Grissom and Sara’s relationship, but after tonight’s episode, I’ll support them no matter what! It was perfectly sweet and lovely. Only one thing darkened what should have been a storybook moment — despite Sara telling Grissom that she trusted him to keep her safe, she got stung by a bee anyway. Is this a dark omen, a sign of things to come? The knowledge that Jorja Fox is leaving the show makes me t... read more

The Secret Life of Bees Season 8, Episode 3

Episode Recap: “Go to Hell”It’s hot as hell in Vegas. The temperature is 109 degrees and rising — but don’t worry. People don’t start getting crazy until it’s 110.Maybe that thermometer’s a little off.Distorted, grotesque people are staggering around in the blistering heat while Harold Perrineau—yes, that’s Papa Michael from ABC’s Lost—is preaching about Hell and damnation. Hell, in case you were wondering, isn’t a possible afterlife. It’s a night of terrible storms in which my cable keeps going out while I’m trying to watch CSI! OK, fine, it’s actually right here in Vegas. Meanwhile, there are a million bees flying around. Keep an eye on the bees. They’re a sign of the coming apocalypse.On their way to a crime scene, the CSIs stumble across one of the previously mentioned distorted, grotesque people (I’m so mean, I know) lying dead in a pile of trash. There’s a dead bee lying near him.Cat... read more

CSIs A Go-Go Season 8, Episode 2

Episode Recap: "A La Cart" Sara is striding through the office, cleaned up but bruised and bandaged, with her arm in a sling. Everyone is giving her strange looks as she walks toward Conrad Eckles’ office. Eckles is trying to reach Grissom — he’s leaving what is apparently his third message — but Sara claims she doesn’t know where he is, either. And I have to wonder, is she lying? She looks awfully sad as she says it, so maybe she really doesn’t know where he is.Eckles starts rights in. It’s an administrative hearing, being held because she and Grissom were — are, Sara corrects him — in direct violation of lab policy. And, Eckles wants to know, when did it start? Two years ago, Sara says. She thinks it was a Sunday.Suddenly we’re watching what looks like a motorcycle helmet bounce down a road, being hit by several trucks before it lands at the feet of men doing some road work. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I thought we... read more

The CSIs Race to Save Sara Sidle Season 8, Episode 1

Episode Recap: “Dead Doll” The suspense had been building all summer — was Sara dead? — but as soon as the episode started, I realized I was going to be kept in the dark a little while longer. A lot longer.The hit crime procedural's first episode of Season 8 brought us face to face with the miniature killer, Natalie Davis, one more time. Natalie, a bleach-fearing loner with a photographic memory, blames Grissom for the suicide of her foster father, Ernie Dell, who died about halfway through last season. Her revenge? “I took away the only person she ever loved, so she’s gonna do the same thing to me,” Grissom says. And that meant Sara.It opens with Sara still stuck under a car in Natalie’s brought-to-life miniature. One hand is sticking out from under the vehicle. Her face is bloody, one eye staring blankly. Is she alive? She starts at a clap of thunder. She is!But maybe not for long. As Catherine and Greg try to track down surveillance footage... read more
