Liz Vassey, CSI actress (she plays Wendy Simms) is in the news today as she and Wallace Langham (who plays Hodges), appeared in one of the funniest CSI’s I had ever seen before. I know, CSI is not meant to be funny, but this episode hands down truly had me going! Wendy and Hodges run into each other at a sci-fi convention, where they both learn that they are fans of “Astro Quest”, and of course, since Hodges has been pining for Wendy for some time now, the crush intensifies even more now that he knows she loves Astro Quest as well. The episode was so fun to watch, as we saw the two in fantasy sequences Hodges had, and it made references to Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica (hilarious).

Naren Shankar, executive producer of CSI, said:

“The idea of having this fantasy element [of flashbacks to ‘Astro Quest’], to have Hodges and Wendy into this classic ’60s sci-fi show, it all just kind of fell into place,” Shankar said. “There’s this notion of the heroic captain always getting the alien babe, and we could do this awkward, geeky love affair — that might be how Hodges gets the girl.”
