CSI:NY in Second Life

Not new news for those of us in the Metaverse but tonight Channel Five in the UK finally aired the episode of the US series that moves into Second Life. The storyline runs until later this month in the US, so guess it will be summer before it concludes here.

This clip meanwhile is a roundup that will give UK readers a teaser of what's to come. Who knows - maybe some popular culture will bring in some new visitors to check it all out.
