"One of those Rascal Flatts boys is jerkin' us around." I'll say! On Thursday night, CSI -- that's the original series and not one of the 14 spin-offs -- will feature Nashville superstars Rascal Flatts in their second-ever "appearance on episodic television." As you'll recall, their network television debut was on an unforgettable episode of the remarkably forgettable series Yes, Dear.
Jerry Bruckheimer might be a Hollywood man, but his heart seems to have dual citizenship in Music City. You might recall Taylor Swift's appearance as the raven-haired stabee in an episode from last season. The Rascal Flatts episode will allegedly be titled "Unshockable," which is both a reference to their 2009 record Unstoppable and to the fact that one of the Rascals gets shocked in most dramatic fashion ... and it ain't an accident! My guess regarding the perpetrator? It was a music critic. They'd better start scouring the tri-county area for anyone with a functional set of ears; having heard their music would probably stand up as a motive in a reasonable court of law. Or maybe it was a Juggalo? Rascal Flatts apparently filmed this episode between selling pancakes and jammin' on their iPods.
