CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Ch-Ch-Changes

Postby Ice Maiden » Sun Nov 25, 2012 12:18 pm

This has been around for years now (it shows up in our logs a lot but I thought I'd write a little more about it) and Channel 5 just run it in the loop with the other episodes.

As it goes despite the rather gory issues in CSI a lot of the messages are factual and it is worth watching.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Ch-Ch-Changes
24/11
Channel 5

Forensic drama series. A roadside murder turns out to be the ultimate case of mistaken identity, and requires the team to explore the world of transsexuals.

Transsexual is murdered (throat cut) and then the team go on a journey that involves show girls dancers, plenty of 'genuine' transpeople are cast in cameos, it also has some unpleasant truths about the US healthcare system.

Image (Image: Channel 5).

Trans as victims trans as heroes. On the fence. Perhaps a little too 'real' for some. And a few days after the 'Transgender Day of Remembrance' this is still happening.

It also slips in (no pun intended) the back street surgery world. In this instance there is the shot of a makeshift operating

theatre with a dead transsexual mid op in a lock-up storage facility.

I think it makes you realise just how good the (our) NHS is.

(A shot straight out of the 'World's Worse Sex-Change Surgeon - this is what happens sometimes).

One of three CSIs that is regularly looped the other two are mistaken identity for trans people. One is where there was

hormones in a water supply and the other where a clown was mistaken for TV.

Worth Watching - they do try to cram in as many trans issues as possible. Just a shame it is a crime show.

Well it seems to use every trick in the book and casts transgender people so ...

Some aspects although shocking have come to pass, and it is timely with the TDOR.
