CSI: Crime Scene Investigation‘s timeslot competition Supernatural takes a comedic jab at the popular franchise in its latest episode, “Changing Channels”. (Supernatural spoilers and embedded video after the jump.)
In the latest episode of the CW series, which airs at 9:00pm ET/PT on Thursday nights opposite CSI, the Winchester brothers (played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) found themselves thrown into alternate realities that were similar to popular television shows such as Grey’s Anatomy (another timeslot competitor) and CSI itself. The CSI parody had the dark look of the original series, but both Winchester brothers copied the mannerisms—and signature shades—of CSI: Miami‘s leading man Horatio Caine (David Caruso).
You can watch the clip below. Please be aware that the video contains some violence and a bit of coarse language.
