    CSI - "Suckers" 02/05

    THE CSI TEAM INVESTIGATES AN ART HEIST AND THE UNDERGROUND WORLD OF BLOOD DRINKING GOTH DEVOTEES, ON "CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION," THURSDAY, FEB. 5

    "Suckers" -- Grissom and his team are called to investigate a multi-million dollar art robbery, while Catherine and Warrick investigate the death of a woman with a bite to her jugular, on CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION Thursday, Feb. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Danny Cannon, one of the series’ executive producers, directed the episode from a script by Danny Cannon and Josh Berman.

    The CSI team is called to an exclusive art exhibition after a rare piece from a 17th century Japanese art collection is stolen. They discover that the robbers used a decoy to distract the guests in order to pull off their heist. Meanwhile, Warrick and Catherine are called when a girl is found dead with a strange bite on her neck and missing several pints of blood. Their investigation leads them into the underground world of blood-drinking Goth devotees.

    Isn't this the first time they have gone on a crime scene where no one died? Or maybe the show discription left that part out of the art heist.

    I think they've gone to non-murder scenes before. Didn't Nick investigate a jewelry heist - the time that lady had swapped out her diamond without telling her husband? Hmmm...I can't remember if there was a body in that storyline. I seem to have vague recollections of one or two others as well where Nick was assigned "less exciting cases" and felt underappreciated.

    Was anyone else left with an empty feeling after this episode?? Both storylines were great until the end, where they ran out of steam and simply *ended*. Where was the classic lead in to believing the casino manager was pulling insurance fraud?? The casual, off-hand mention of the bundles of money weighing more than the thief is all I caught. CSI has done this to me (left me with an empty feeling) more than once in the past. What's happening?

    I thought it was a pretty good episode. Both storylines were good. I thought the casino owner was dirty, but couldn't figure out how...

    Yesterday's episode, was interesting, to say the least. I don't really get the part with the casino owner though.
    Gustav Holst was right!

    I finally saw this episode last night. I thought it was great. I love the episodes where they have parallel story lines that are both fascinating. The art heist storyline was classic "grifter" type material. My only complaint, though, was that the guy playing the casino owner was a TERRIBLE actor! "I want answers!" was the most stiff, embarrassing line I've ever heard uttered on CSI. They usually have such great actors on the show. I wonder whose brother-in-law that guy was?!

    As far as CSI's presence for the jewelry heist, it was originally thought to be a murder, which is why they were there. I guess they just get to stay until the case is solved in that situation. Grissom's opening lines here were classic. "This is not a crime scene." followed by "THIS is a crime scene."

    And, Z, the episode you were thinking of was "Fight Night." And there was no body in the jewelry store that time, either.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Good memory Z, I had forgotten about that one.
