CSI “Dune and Gloom” Review

Domestic terrorist cell or old-fashioned murder? The team had to figure that out when a dune buggy race across the desert turned deadly in "Dune and Gloom," this week’s episode of CSI.

In the end, the three guys who built the exploding buggy were just three mental patients who made a connection, wanted to win a race, but ended up being exploited by an old man who wanted revenge on an oil company who he blamed for his miserable life.
