I HEARD IT!
My attention was drawn from my computer by the words "amorphophallus
(though not pronounced the way I normally hear it said) to see a shot of a
plant tag for, indeed, "Amorphophallus titanum". Since it was germane to the
plot, they even remarked on a common name of "rotting corpse flower".
But yes, nothing resembing an Amorphophallus titanum, mispronounced~
There was nothing in sight that looked remotely like a real A. titanum, of
course, or any amorphophallus, but hey, it's a mention of an aroid on the
number one show on prime time television here in the US - can "The
Movie" be far behind?
I thought it was influenced PERHAPS the THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS!
This is not the first forensic horror this program has featured!
