On the printout that Hodges hands Langston it shows the chemical formula for magnesium carbonate as being CMgO3 when in fact it actually is MgCO3. The carbonate ion (CO3) would never be broken by magnesium. See more »


Greg Sanders: Well, having dabbled in the art of discrete hair coloration myself in my younger, more experimental days, I know a thing or two about the calibration of highlights and low-lights required to obtain certain effects.

Welcome back, Greg Sanders!
1 May 2010 | by LineThySee all my reviews

Not so long ago I read somewhere that one of the things the original CSI needs to get back on its feed is Greg Sanders' funny comments, and I could not agree more! The character has become way to sombre - what happen to our beloved wisecrack?

In "Take My Life, Please" we don't just look back to the good old days of Las Vegas, but we get some of the good old Greg Sanders back! How he's been missed! Its actually a perfect story to re-introduce him, because of his love and knowledge of Vegas' Golden Age, even if it is only hinted at with Knuckles comment on how Greg can possible know why Knuckles and Nash stopped their first performance run thirty years ago.

Let's hope fun man Greg don't go into oblivion again - we do need some Papa Olaf ;o)
