So this episode sees ‘gruesome Grissom’ (an excellent coinage by Jenna the coroner – I like her, it’s a shame that she disappears in the next few episodes) getting emotional about the crime he’s investigating: a kid who has been killed by his best friend while they’re both high on jimson weed.
The boy is quite the hottie [edit: and apparently a bit of a Hero too…] so I can understand Grissom’s emotional involvement.
In fact, he is so upset by the whole thing that he has to take the Pout on the New York New York rollercoaster (an excellent ride on which I myself have rid), the first appearance of a hobby which gets referenced many times in future episodes. The whole sequence of Grissom doing a mournful face while whizzing round the sky is absolute gold (maybe one day I will set it to an appropriate soundtrack) but I have selected a pout picture as particularly pleasing to my many fans (ahem).
At least this off-her-face lady at an illegal desert rave does her best to cheer him up.
Meanwhile a man (if not a face) we will soon grow to know and love makes his first appearance – step up step up David the assistant coroner! Woop.
He cracks onto Sara with an excellent line, which she somehow manages to resist.
David: I really admire the gusto with which you approach your job.
Sara, in this episode, applies her gusto to a clingfilmed lady found in a dumpster
who has been graverobbed by her own mortician. Ordinarily this would be something of a shock but let’s take a look at the man in question…
Meanwhile Nick and Catherine have to deal with some evil lesbians
who aren’t really that evil but have had to kill the headmaster of the school at which they teach to stop him blackmailing them about exposing their relationship to parents. What a horrible man. He kind of deserved to die. So I guess that means Speccy White Guy is the only real villain in this whole episode… what a surprise.
Another thing that isn’t surprising is that Greg is modelling YET ANOTHER hideous shirt.
In a new turn of events, he’s also got himself a necklace.
And finally… I don’t really have anywhere that I am going with this, but an excellent face from Nick.
