  • It is getting to the point where I now watch the show just to see how many holes I can find in their silly script.

    4.8
    *Opening sequence was just a cheap copy of any slasher film and basically did not correlate with what happened during the actual crime. Where was the kid that was being baby-sat, while the babysitter was making out, then killing her mom? He wasn't sleeping because he was supposedly playing that phone prank on the sitter later on. *Delko returns from the dead and is back at work, within weeks. It takes most people at least a week to come back after having a cold, let alone being shot in the head! Now he's back handling important evidence like it is his choice to make when he wants to come back to work. *Isn't drugging someone with GHB or any type of mind-altering drug without their knowledge illegal? The doctor admitted doing that, but he was never arrested for it. It was treated like it was no big deal.



    Next week... a grizzly bear killer? Ha... it keeps getting better!moreless
  • CSI: Miami is starting to lose its luster.

    5.0
    When CSI: Miami first came on air, I used to love the show. The acting wasn't as good as the original CSI but at lease there were good storylines. This is certainly not the case, lately. And it is sad because the other CSI's have actually gotten creative with each of their storylines. What happened to Miami?? Anyway, this seems to have been done before-a love triangle with the baby-sitter, her boyfriend and her mom, whom she ended up killing. Also, what sick middle-aged mom would have anything to do with a teen? I know, it happens but we all don't need to be reminded of that! Then, the boyfriend kills the dad in what he describes a "self defense?" You use your helmet to attack the guy when all he does is confront you?? C'mon!! Secondly, Eric came back way too quickly. I know the other people reviewing this episode were confused as how long was it since Eric got shot. Natalia actually clarified it - she stated that it had been a few weeks since Eric was shot in the head. With that said, there is no way he should even have gotten out of the hospital in a short period of time. And it was very predictable that the doctor Horatio was investigating was shady. Just another person Horatio can torment...moreless
  • A babysitter's parents turn up dead where they're not supposed to be. The team digs, and they find a lot of dirt... and a serial killer? Wait, where'd that come from?moreless

    Delko messes up while still recovering from his brain injury. And Horatio was outside without his sunglasses! He was squinting! hehe There's no shortage of secrets and weird people in this one. Disregard the boy who sneaks out of the house to steal, and the MIA parents passed out somewhere, there's still plenty to keep the team busy: a doctor trying to break into the house, a lying teenage babysitter (don't they always lie, though?), her boyfriend. An out-of-place bracelet leads to a murder victim and a serial killer (that one I had not seen coming), that turns out to be Dr. Serial Killer. So basically the boy killed the dad and the girl killed the mom, and neither meant it, and both are very much mentally unwell. :)moreless
  • This episode is amazing. It is one of the best and should go down in history.

    10
    This the best episode ever. It was down right amazing. I can not wait for the rerun. This is why i watch this show. When they can bring in an actor like Jeremy Sumpter and get him to do such a small part, it is good. Why is it that it is always the good looking guys that are guilty no matter what? Am I the only one who sees that. It always is the good looking boy friend or the hot girl friend. Is this a law of all tv shows. like come on. Is it nessary?? Someone back me up on this.moreless
  • They really need new story lines...more exciting ones!!! Glad Delko is back tho!!

    8.3
    This story line wasn't very exciting I agree with one of the other reviews the most exciting part was the motorcycle chase with the boyfriend. It was pretty messed up how the mom was sleeping with the boyfriend and all but I believe I've seen if not that exact story line a similar one like it before. I don't know some thing new would be great. I'm really glad Delko is back tho. It's going to be an interesting recovery for him and the rest of the CSI: Miami crew. Yes, he's going to mess up but I both hope and think that the team will find a way to work through it!!moreless

    • Frank: So the babysitter said she saw someone at this window, right?. A possible peeping Tom.
      Ryan: Maybe Tom was doing more than peeping.
      Frank: How can you tell?
      Ryan: There's fresh tool marks from trying to get the window open.
      Frank: Maybe whoever it was left behind something more than tool marks.
      Ryan: Yeah, it's a glass window, good surface for prints...maybe we'll get lucky.

    • Calleigh: Are you ready?
      Eric: I'm not going in.
      Calleigh: C'mon, it'll be good for your confidence.
      Eric: No, you were right I made a rookie mistake.
      Calleigh: Hey, you were the one who figured out the murder weapon, you were the one that broke the case.
      Eric: (shaking head) I came back too soon.
      Calleigh: Alright, I'll go this one alone, but we can't make it without you.
