    I don't think the show is losing its touch its the fact that the cbs ppl canceled it so soon that they didn't have a lot of time to finshish and take time on all the episodes that's why there is only 19 instead of around 25
  • CSI:Miami reaches a new low, as the show is running out of likeable characters.

    2.5
    I've disliked some of the CSIs (or their actions) before, but after this episode there is no person left I like on the show and I definitely won't watch it again. In addition to a ridiculous plotline, I think absolutely every character did something so profoundly stupid and acted insufferable I might just call this the worst show/episode on television. In case you don't believe me, here are some examples:

    [Horatio] He has just been shot and jumpes into the ocean to save Natalia (which was nice but still ridiculously unbelievable) and then he walks right out the hospital 5 seconds after being admitted (for a frickin' GUNSHOT WOUND!!!). On the plus side he had visions of Marisol (...)

    [Marisol] The actress is beautiful, but after not being on CSI she should have just watched the episodes she was in to get a feel for the character again. Being pretty just isn't enough. Basically she was a Marisol-look-alike with a totally different character.

    [Natalia] Don't even get me started. Almost drowns and then takes her wounded and bleeding boss out of the hospital. Smashes a suspects face into a table during an interrogation (which seems pretty normal in the CSI Miami universe 'cause all the CSIs and cops do it). On the plus side she did have a cute conversation with Wolfe.

    [Ryan] Useless waste of screentime. He's not doing much these days. "Train coming up fast" really? So what do they do? Sit around doing nothing. Awesome job guys...

    [Eric] So 2 seconds before the train gets in their way he realizes that they should do something about it. The writers must be so sick and tired of "thinking" they just stopped doing it a few seasons ago. And what does Eric do afterward? Blame the guy they sent in. This is just so dumb.

    [Frank] I never liked Tripp from the first time I saw him on CSI: Miami. He just likes being an ass, smacking around suspects, and I don't like people like that. If he was the only obnoxious character on the show it might be a different story, differentiating him from the rest, but the way it is now he's just another one of those unappealing people running around.

    [Walter] Wasn't he working the night-shift before? I don't know why he's in the show anyway. He is some sort of wanna-be badass, especially when he's around Frank Tripp. Reminds me of high school where the IQ of (male) students drops proportional to the number of pupils around.

    [Calleigh] Oh wait, there was a normal likeable person around. Unfortunately it's the one with the annoying voice but that's not something I can hold against her. She saved the show from getting a "1" rating.

    I'm not even gonna start on the rest of the cast. Funny fact: The most likeable characters of the episode (besides Calleigh) were the guy they had in custody (forgot his name already) and the serial killer. Now that's just sad.moreless

    The show lost its spark a few seasons back. I hated it how Horatio got aggressive during the 9th season. And what is that with mentioning and showing Marisol again and again and again? She is dead!!! So let her go. It is becoming boring.

    The new writers should see the first 3 seasons because apparently they didnt see them and they have no idea that something was going on between Horatio and Yelina and they just cut off Yelina a few seasons back and there hasnt been any mention of her since that time. In the first seasons Horatio cared for his relatives very much, he showed his deep feelings for them and his character has changed in the last seasons entirely. We dont know anything about Kyle, his son, either. Last time he appeared on the show was 2 seasons back. There was also this Suzie who had slept with Horatio´s brother Raymond and they had a child together (Madison) and Horatio had deep feelings for the girls, bought them an appartment, etc. And we havent heard about them since the 3rd (!) season. We havent heard about Ray Jr. for quite a long time, too.

    Horatio is becoming an old aggressive man with nothing to live for anymore, emotionless, burnt-out, still thinking about his late wife, occationally seeing her...oh,come on... the show is dying out.. it is becoming more and more absurd as some reviewers have already written here (e.g. horatio who has just been shot is rescuing natalia from a trunk of a car underwater holding his breath for ages, etc.).. it is impossible that the viewers believe what they see anymore.. the show is becoming stupid.

    I am still hoping that they will bring Yelina back one day and maybe also Kyle, Ray Jr. or some other CSIs´relatives.In the first seasons relatives of the CSI team were part of the show and now we no longer learn anything about their private lifes..

    It was not an exellent one, but it was not that bad either, I have to say that I really enojyed this episode, actually, I like this episode more than the previous one which in my opinion lacked of interest and had a lot of mistakes in its development, however, this episodes has a lot of flaws and that´s reason why I´m not giving a teen

    something I liked here was to see horatio´svulnerability in this episode, finally we discover that he is a human after all and that he is not untouchable like previous seasons try to show us, howevere something I really hated about his one, is too see how horatio and natalia did not care about their states deciding to leave the hospital to catch the bad guy, in real life, that is something that never could happen.

    I´m not a big fan of persecution scenes, but I liked how they tried to cath the killer in this one because it was not boring at all and I cauth my attention a lot of times, that is a very good point for episodes like these, maybe that is the reason why I´m giving it a good score

  • I can't believe I hung on the edge of my seat all summer for this seasons premier. It seems this show is losing its' touch. Do they really expect us to believe Haratio didn't die when he went into the water? Not sure if I will be wanting to keep watching.moreless

    This episode was so "Sure you're right" Seriously? Both of them, especially Horatio should have keeled over long before the end of the show. He was so weak, yet he jumped into the water, stayed down forever, yanked on the trunk, opened the door, jerked the seat and pulled her out all while holding his breath. Give me a break!

    • Austin: My dad's gone now, and...my mom...I thought maybe... we could stay with you for a while. Before that.
      Calleigh: Oh, Austin...
      Austin: Pretty stupid, isn't it?
      Calleigh: No. That's not stupid. I would love to be able to say...that I could take you and your sister. But I have this job. And it's a big one. And it takes a lot of my time. And it... it asks a lot of me. Sometimes too much.

    • Natalia: We bent over backwards for you. I stood in that court and I stood up for you, and I told that judge that you were a changed man, and you tried to kill us?
      Randy: You know what you got me? You got me nothing. Nothing!
      Natalia: No, now you've got nothing! If you come at me one more time, I will put a bullet in your brain. Do you understand me?
