Horatio irritates me so much (I attribute the show's slo mo acting style to him and the others just have to go along) I rarely watch this, but was lured into it by the origins of the sunglasses previews, and just now got to the tapes. I have to say it was one of the better episodes. "Horatio" actually seemed to speak at a normal pace (except when he was "teaching" Eric), looked better (vaseline on the lens for younger skin? Or just that you could actually see his eyes most of the time?), and generally "acted" like a normal human being, not a robot. The other actors also sped up their delivery... it was great. Calleigh was way too perky for my taste...yes, she's supposed to be younger, but not in junior high! But otherwise one of the more enjoyable episodes.
Query... do FBI agents really address each other as Agent X? Could you run a PCR on this, Agent Boa Vista? Very weird.
Also nice to see how much the science has evolved in the last 10 or 12 years.
