Did You Know?


Supposedly, the men that were using explosives to go fishing detonated some explosives next to the sunken car which caused the victim's arm to become severed at the wrist and shoulder and float to the surface. There are a number of inconsistencies shown where the victim has both her arms, even during the explosion. For something to have enough force to rip her arm from her body, there is no other damage to the vehicle or her body. See more »

Dan Cooper: I was just having a little bit of fun, man, all right? Little Miss Perfect needed to be taken down a notch or two. So I videotaped her. So what?

Lisa Sheridan did a great job in "Ambush"
1 July 2014 | by BBButler3See all my reviews

For someone who had to play a corpse for most of the episode, I'm very impressed by Ms. Lisa Sheridan's work as Kathleen Newberry in the "Ambush" episode of Season 6. I've never noticed her before in anything she'd done, but the kind of physical work that this role required was pretty demanding, and that in spite of the fact she had to remain immobile most of the time. I'm aware that anyone who has to play a corpse in the CSI series is pretty well doomed to play a thankless role. So I guess I should be thanking the writers and director for some of this. I see from her resume and bio information that she's pretty active in the business. Now I'll keep an eye out.
