Definitely enjoyed last night's episode, as well. Lots of film noir references and noir-like music. Did anyone notice the one lingering shot towards the end of the episode with a tight close-up of a "haunted looking" Greg in the left half of the screen, with the blurry background happenings in the right half? Very old-school noir (can't think off-hand of a particular old movie that used that camera composition, but there's gotta be some ... help, anyone?)
And one of the final lines: "For what it's worth, I loved you since Tuesday." That one is excellent.
I think some of the best CSI episodes have been derivative - one of my all-time favorites is Rashomama (takeoff on Rashomon).
