  • Blood in the water

    9.2
    A boat is up in flames and sharks are all around the boat and the daughter jumps in and the brother goes in after her and both are missing. Someone moved the Bouy. Someone on the Yahct started the fire. They found a different body in the water. The burned man was on the boat. He was dead in the boat. The young girl where the exchange student was staying. He tried to get Luke not to get the gold. The bong was ignited and cooking fuel was in the bong. He was doing his "sister". They were neither brother nor sister.moreless
  • The storyline was just too far-fetched.

    6.1
    The episode started out really promising, but then it lost steam... Nobody in the family, except perhaps Mrs Gannon, seemed likeable which made it difficult to care what had happened to them. Everyone except for the wife turned out to be bad guys, but they should have allowed us to care about them until we found that out.



    The two cases turned out to be just one, so that worked well. But a Norwegian exchange student named Damon Loughlin? Could't they at least have given the guy a Scandinavian name? Or at the very least not given him a name which you won't find in the Nordic? And while we're on cases and storylines, the semi-subplot with the guy who helped Luke get the gold felt unnecessary. Frankly the whole thing with the fake family being after the gold felt too far-fetched. Go to great lengths to kill a guy to then hope to marry the widow, pose as a family and steal lots of gold three years later? It just doesn't seem probable in any way. They must have been able to figure out some quicker and easier way to get to the gold.



    The ending, with Horatio looking out at his "family", was kind of nice. It came close to being too mushy, but it managed to stay good. One of the reasons I prefer this CSI series to the original and to NY is that the characters work well together and seem to connect. And with mother hen Alexx and father figure Horatio to lead the team they do form something of a family.moreless
  • ah i guess the saying what goes around comes around is really true.what was julie gannon thinking jumping into the water? the sharks would bow dow and worship? its a cool episodemoreless

    9.0
    what i dont get is this; how is it possible that snr gannon'prints were still on the black tape after 3 years and the evidence ws still intact as if it had been left the day before?am not a forensic expert but i think wear and tear and weather conditions should have done some damage. and am thinking the guy that bought the merc off insurance people must have done a thorough servicing of the car right? so how come the workshop didnt see the device that delko saw in that car. it sounded far fetched to me but i love watching the series.moreless
  • Poor shark, having to eat the skinny girl...

    6.5
    It seems for this episode of CSI: Miami they put a bunch of plot devices into a hat drew out a bunch and shoved it all together into one episode.



    For the most part it worked, creating a perfectly screwed up family in a totally screwed up situation that didn't seem belivable. Greedy scavangers, switched buoys, fake family pulling a long con, gold bars, drugs. The girl panicked and got herself killed. The boy tried to steal ten million. When in mortal danger such as being on board a flaming ship it seems unlikely a person would turn down help even at extortionate rates.



    Eric gets to go diving again, Ryan and Calleigh have a moment, Horatio has his sunglasses.



    The con artists were human and immoral. The unluckyness of being in the wrong place at the wrong time is again shown as well as peoples pride. Shame it wasn't truely belivable.moreless
  • A lot to cover for the team!

    8.8
    The team must split up as there is a lot to cover

    Meaning first a family has lost about $10 million in golden bars while a missing teenager is also on the horizon

    Also a foreign exchange student comes in with the mix of things!

    Leave it again to H to help figure it out

    Great acting as well as writing makes up this show

      Nothing Else Matters - Bedroom Rockers

      Screwball - Plump DJs

    • Goof: According to the file on Damon Loughlin he's from Norway. Neither Damon nor Loughlin are names you will find anywhere in Scandinavia.

      Edit: Simple explanation of this could be, that his parents were American/British, whatever and moved to Norway many years ago before having Damon

    • Goof Ryan picks up the bullet shell casing by the sides with her fingers.: This could damage or destroy any evidence that was on the casing including any prints or DNA

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Wolfe: Any info on our John Doe from the water?
      Alexx: No soot in his lungs; no asophagial burning.
      Wolfe: He was already dead when he got on the Gannon's boat.
      Alexx: (feigned pride of his conclusion) Look at my boy, all grown up.

    • Calleigh: Run and shoot Ryan, our crime scene is going under.

    • Frank: He ran head-on into a stone wall. He was pronounced at the scene. Looks like, to me, it was just a freak accident…
      Eric: Or the perfect crime!

    • Luke Gannon: Do you have any proof of that ?
      Horatio: Do not test me.

    • Horatio: Frank, we got to move quick; the tide is rising and we have a sinking crime scene.

    • (After a father explains that he avoided the rescue ship -- and lost his two kids -- because he'd heard of another salvager charging a yacht a half million for a tow.)
      Horatio: Well, I bet that half million looks like a bargain now.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The Eliases said they had lost $10 million in gold bars. $10 million was the same amount of money the hotel manager in the C.S.I. episode "Suckers" claimed to have lost from his vault.
