Episode 15: Kill Screen

Summary

The discovery of an amphetamine-like drug that boosts concentration is found in a murder victim's car, leading the detectives to discover he was a referee in a high-stakes video-gaming tournament. They learn he had confiscated the illicit substance, providing them with a possible motive for the killing, but when they uncover the competition was rigged with a computer code, a host of potential suspects emerges. Crime drama, starring Gary Sinise and Sela Ward.

Review

A process server is killed just after delivering a summons to a motorcycle mechanic, who naturally becomes a suspect. But we know better than to think the first suspect is the murderer, don’t we?

Instead, the plot leads to the world of professional video-gaming with its attendant dangers of inflamed hands (“Nintendonitis”) and dodgy stimulants. It’s a chance for our crime lab heroes to recall the gaming triumphs of their youth. Meanwhile, Sid – now a multimillionaire, thanks to his anti-snore pillow – has bought a Dyson.
