"Montiquans" in CSI: NY

The crime show CSI: NY had a Native-themed episode last night. It was titled Communication Breakdown and the bare-bones plot was: "A Native American chief is gunned down on a subway."

Rob's mini-review: A reasonably serious attempt to explore modern Native life. Few stereotypes, several mistakes, a lot of unbelievable coincidences. Naturally, gaming is involved at the end.

Stay tuned for a full review.
