Over at the LiveJournal for "Tommy Westphall's Mind" (see the link to the left), Vicki shared this trivia nugget:
"The 11/08 "The Woman in the Sands" episode of Bones has a reference to a prostitute who worked at the Tangiers hotel. Bingo. That's one of the fictional hotel casinos used in CSI."
As I said, it's trivial, but it's one of those little bolts that hold the TV Universe together. So we can say with conviction that 'Bones' and 'CSI' are definitely linked.
And it doesn't matter that the reason both of them probably used that name for a casino was because it was the site of all the action going down in the movie "Casino". It's a nice tip of the hat in-joke to Martin Scorsese's film.
As Westphallian head honcho Crossoverman said, it doesn't negate the link between 'CSI' and 'Bones'.
