  • The CSIs Investigate A Mother's Death At A Child Beauty Contest. Could The Killer Be Another Contestant's Mother?

    9.0
    After watching this episode and reading all the reviews here, I have to write a review about it. I agree with other people here that this episode shows the pathetic and disturbing world of pageant shows. Ryan said: "Let children be children". I couldn't agree more. Because of this I found the plot interesting and the characters too. The person who killed Suzanne was a good twist and I did not see it coming. However, it did not leave me happy as I felt that the conclusion was nog up to show's standards. Once again, Horatio's actions has caused controversy among audiences. I agree, Horatio should have done the right thing but I think he did not take it too far here. He seems to be more aggressive with suspects nowadays. That may be because has been shot twice ("Going Ballistic and "Mayday"). Nevertheless, a great episode!moreless

    First: It was easy to figure out that the child killed or at least felt responsible for the death of her mother.

    Why? Well, as soon i saw those pillows under the blankets i knew it was the kid, simply because only a child would think that that would cover up the fact that her mother was lying dead on the floor next to the bed, neither an adult nor a teenager would have such innocent thought.



    Second: I sometimes agree that Horatio takes it too far, but this time shore the hell was not one of those. I only feel sorry that the writers didn't putted a broom were he felled so that he would had been rape by it before he diedmoreless

    this episode was pretty good. i do like how it shows how pathetic these pageant shows are i mean really. they said spending thousands for a college fund that you could have paid yourself with the price of what the stuff costs.

    i use to love how horatio use to bend the rules sometimes but now he is just over doing it. i mean he could have tried to save the dudes life. the prisoners would have made him their bitch anyway.moreless
  • At a children's beauty pageant, the mother of one of the contestants is found dead in her hotel room....by her six year-old daughter. Horatio and the team begin their investigation into a world that is scary enough as it is.moreless

    Forget Friday the 13th or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. If you want to see something truly frightening, check out children's beauty pageants. This episode does a good job looking into this scary and pathetic world. What I also liked about the episode was its well written script. It took some clever turns especially with the story focusing on the death of the pageant mother. My problem with this episode is the same problem hakone1 and other reviewers have stated. I was bothered by the fact that Horatio let the kidnapper fall to his death. Horatio stated his reason for doing so when the kidnapper said he would change and Horatio said he did not believe him. However, despite the fact that I agree with Horatio's opinion, Horatio should have put his duty and obligation as a police officer ahead of his personal opinions.moreless
  • The case was interesting but I really hated Horatio in this episode.

    6.5
    I don't like what writers are doing to Horatio this season. He is advising a father, whose son was murdered, to take revenge but not get caught. He is taking justice in his own hands and beating up a cop murderer - with a little help from Tripp. Finally, he lets a man fall to his death. He commits a crime in almost every episode. It was exciting at first but now it's disgusting for me. How can he still rebuke criminals and send them behind bars when he is a criminal himself?! I can't give this episode better score when main "crime fighter" doesn't care about the law.



    The case itself was pretty interesting although those beauty pageants are creepy for me. Poor girls don't even look like kids anymore and obviously they suffer a lot.



    All in all, not the best episode of CSI:Miami.moreless
