The episode's use of the Ozzy Osbourne song "Let Me Hear You Scream" is to help promote Osbourne's album 'Scream'. See more »


(at around 25 mins) Sheldon says that rechargeable batteries are full of sulfuric acid. While that is true for an ordinary car battery and sealed lead-acid battery, the device in question is built to be light-weight and very likely employs a nickel or lithium based battery, neither of which rely on sulfuric acid. Then Sheldon and Reggie go on to crush the battery to release the electrolyte, which could cause a lithium ion battery to explode. (at around 40 mins) Sheldon also says that the reaction between sulfuric acid and metal releases hydrogen gas, and Reggie will not want to inhale it as it could kill him. In such a well ventilated space as in question, the small amount of acid would not be likely to produce a high enough concentration of hydrogen gas to be lethal. See more »

Lying in wait, ready to pounce.

The last episode with writing from Peter Lenkov. 0nce Lenkov was no longer involved in the day to day on this show, it was ripe for the plucking. CBS knew they were unable to carry out their sabotage while he was still around. Pam Veasey was a wuss, she had no spine, no steel in combating CBS when they made Melina Kanakaredes the victim of their corporate gang-rape. Lenkov was the sheriff, the law and the only stopgap the show had. That covers the network politics, but onto the episode Itself.

A mini-Bruckheimer movie, action packed adventure ride. Harold Perrineau as Reggie Tiford went thru an evolution and Hill Harper hit you in the gut at the end when Hawkes visited his sister's grave. I understand Lenkov had to make HAWAII 5-0 his priority, but had he never left this show, CBS would not have been able to destroy it. This week would have been the period paying host to this show's 300th episode. SCREAM by 0zzy 0sbourne was the perfect musical backdrop. This episode captures a moment in time when CSI:NEW YORK was at Its best. 0nce Season 6 was done, so was the show. From Kanakaredes Konsistency to being Warded off by Sela. Disgraceful the turn the show took 6 years ago. Shame on CBS.
