  • maybe the idea of ghosts was a bit stupid at first but it worked!!

    maybe the idea of ghosts was a bit stupid at first but it worked, this made it quite exiting and i hate programs that include things that dont work but this was just perfect!!!! that's all i have 2 say.
  • Lots of parts didn't make sense...

    4.5
    Lots of parts didn't make sense, for example, the neighbour, Stephanie Hollister. Why was she even part of the episode? The only evidence the CSIs had was a penny that came from Key West. She confessed far too quickly, and her story wasn't plausible at all. She's a small woman (shorter than Ryan), and she (a) dragged the plumber's large body UPSTAIRS, (b) found an unfinished section of wall deep enough for the body, (why was there that much wasted space?) (c) also found all the tools and materials she needed to board up the body inside it, AND (d) knew how to use them. It just doesn't make sense.moreless
  • This wasn't my favorite but it wasnt horrible.I didn't love the idea of ghosts but i haven't ever seen anything like it before.

    8.0
    Calleigh rushes into a burning house to attempt to save a teenaged boy trapped inside. She helps get him out of the house at great cost to herself, but her effort was in vain as the boy is pronounced dead at the scene. An investigation begins.From there it seems to be "normal",until she is on the phone with horatio and she hears a voice. however she know something is up when eric is back from his vaction.She soon fines she is not fine and is really sick.(i thought after she woke up it would have been a great time for eric to propose.)like i said it wasn't the best but it wasn't horible.moreless
  • Ghosts!!! How corny is this going to get? What happened to the Russian Mob and Mala Noche Gang?

    4.0
    My analysis of the Season opener applies here. It hurts to type this since this is my favorite TV show.After the amazing "Seeing Red" ,"Dissolved" etc.,this was a MAJOR letdown! 1997 the beginning,give me a break.I hope this wasn't a "Jump the Shark" show.How much cornier could this one have gotten? Unless it's a comedy,going back in time beyond the shows' original episodes and recreating moments that didn't air in the first place is a disaster! Bruckheimer at his worst! I hope the ABC deal isn't going to affect this Classic,Great show.

    Will the REAL CSI:Miami please return!!!The cast and characters are great,get back on track and keep it that way!!!moreless
  • What is this? CSI: Ghost Whisperer?

    3.0
    Here we used to have a show where evidence obtained by scientific method decided who was guilty and who was not. Now, this episode, we have Calleigh communicating with dead people and actually obtaining some information about the dry ice when she was in a coma. How are they gonna present this in the court? Now, I wonder what Horatio was thinking when he got that piece of paper? He must be thinking scientifically, Calleigh is good, she must have assumed that the sprinkler system was sabotaged, but how did she get to the dry ice business? I suppose he will ask her later, what will she say? "I dreamed about it"? I am upset with the writers for giving us this episode with crossing-over mumbo-jumbo. This is my two cents.moreless

    • Eric: Babe, work will still be here tomorrow. Should be back at the hospital.
      Calleigh: Yeah, you know...you've had this job before. You know sometimes there are just things you need to do. (about the dead boy) It's the strangest thing, but I feel like I knew him. (to the boy) Rest in peace.

    • Calleigh: Okay, Ryan, look, I am sorry. I know that I should have waited for the fire department. It was a really stupid thing to do.
      Ryan: Calleigh, Calleigh, Calleigh, you always got to be a hero.
