It came to me. Eating Raoul, a vey low budget cult classic. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083869/?ref_=nv_sr_1 If you can find it on Netflix or someplace else it's well worth the cost.

There have been a lot of problems with the forensic labs here in DE lately.  Just recently bones were discovered in two bags in a freezer - the lab is being cleared out and a new forensic division is being established.  They do know the identity of these particular bones but what if this had been a murder victim left there because the killer thought the bags would just be disposed of without further investigation.  Basis of a good case for CSI.

This was a GREAT movie!!! Totally low budget but so much fun to watch! Speaking of meals,  another favorite of mine is Dinner With Andre.  An incredible adventure with two minds that really never meet, but they spend the night conversing about things that would never cross MY mind!  One has his feet on the ground and the other is flying sky high!!! A really great movie.

This would have made for a great B story on Classic CSI http://www.philly.com/philly/news/breaking/20141123_ap_6dee496d2db845f29824993f99200e09.html I'm thinking Warrick and Catherine and it's Sam Braun's casino.

And speaking of casinos and Sam Braun, IF they HAD to do a crossover with NCIS http://www.navytimes.com/story/military/2014/11/22/gambling-admiral-fake-poker-chips/19395377/?sf33964254=%5B%271%27%5D

I've seen Eating Raoul.  Grin

The different in original CSi and current CSI is the ability of writers to take a true story and turn it into an entertaining Vegas story. And, somewhat like they are trying to do with NCIS-New Orleans, Vegas, the city was part of the story. We don't see that now.

And Catherine finally got her inheritance and started Sam Braun's dream over again. http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/dec/01/local-man-hits-14-million-jackpot-rampart-casino/?utm_source=mostpopular&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=mostRead

Bringing Catherine into it is very appropriate.  Remember in Inside the Box Rampart was the name of one of Sam's casino's and that name on the scissors helped figure out the solution to the robbery - and that Sam was Catherine's father.

And didn't they implode it in Built To Kill Part 1? Since they're recycling stories they may as well go back to Pilot with the jinxed jackpot. Only this time Catherine is in danger when Fern and Morgraine discover that the slot machine was fixed to not pay out.

This might be more a true crime inspired by a script. Where's Grissom and Catherine when you need them?

I thought Lou Gedda owned Pig Alley...

"Club Paradise regularly was the focus of unsettling reports of illicit activity. Five years ago, a tourist from Kansas City claimed he blacked out during an early-morning visit to the club and was stunned to find $29,500 in charges, including a $4,000 bar tab and more than $25,000 “unexplained services” from a sextet of exotic dancers."

It's pretty amazing how often we read something in the papers these days that follows a script we've seen on CSI - the early ones; not those showing for several seasons.  Right now the Prof seems to be the only one posting them but if any of the rest of you see anything like that, mention them here.  Shows how true to life CSI used to be.

How about a story similar to JonBenet Ramsay (may she rest in peace) and they actually SOLVE the crime.

or

There was actually a nasty crime scene years ago across town in an apartment complex where a group of Hispanic men were brutally tortured and murdered and the bodies were arranged in an unusual way.  The County Sheriff's office said that the crime scene was clean as a whistle.  Somehow they managed to track down the bad guys.  When we bring up this event in casual conversation, we all get the willies.

or

come up with something along the lines of that incredibly elegant story of "A Bullet Runs Through It" and beef it up.
