The Ten Grossest Dead Bodies of the TV Season

As another television season comes to an end, it's that gruesome time again: We look at the hundred-plus corpses that have appeared week in and week out on procedurals like CSI, Bones, Castle, and Criminal Minds, and pick out the most disgusting. On these shows murders are supposedly a serious thing, but when the protagonists find a body in a pizza oven or chomped on by a T-Rex, there's just no hiding the pride these shows feel that they've rigged up a particularly horrifying looking cadaver. So, herewith, the ten most gruesome bodies of the 2010–11 TV season. Be warned, lunch-breakers: Some of these are truly grotesque.
