Ted Danson Ted Danson

Oh Ted Danson, what have you gotten yourself into? It what sounds more suited for an episode of Bones or Castle (or Hart to Hart), CSI's third episode of its new season — entitled "Bittersweet" — will feature a death straight out of the Willy Wonka chocolate factory.

When a former Abercrombie model named Chad gets down in the dumps over his weight gain, he flings himself into a vat of chocolate and drowns. I'm not kidding. And there's more.

A chocolate mold of the poor kid will be discovered by the CSI team, which requires the actor who plays this role to have a body mold taken of his whole form.

Does this sound like CSI to you? Are you concerned that in season 12 the long-running CBS procedural has perhaps jumped the chocolate bunny? Or are you a fan of CSI's more far-out cases like those plushies and furries from season four?
