  • CSI: Miami marks its 100th episode as a robbery/double murder at an upscale party starts Horatio and his team on a trail that leads them to an off shore gambling operation whose business practices may not be all they appear to be.moreless

    This is a very good episode of CSI: Miami though it does have its flaws. As another reviewer pointed out this episode recycles the premise of a team member with a gambling problem. That should have been excluded since it has been done on CSI. CSI: Miami should stick to its own ideas as it has done in the past. The well written story does overcome this flaw and the top notch cast continues to do its part after so many episodes. Hopefully CSI: Miami will keep up the good work beyond episode 100.moreless
  • Wow, talk about a great way to celebrate 100 episodes.

    In all honesty, I never knew you could do any sort of gambling 3 miles off shore. This was definitely an interesting in take of gambling. I know it's obviously not original for doing something about addiction, but I've never seen crime shows go into the world of gambling. I was totally laughing my @$$ off when Ryan was telling Boa Vista off for touching the mask, then looking all embarrassed when she said she photographed and measured it. ^^ When Calleigh finds out Ryan gave her a phony $100 and then he says he tried out the death pool thing, I was all like, "someone's not getting laid tonight!" (I'm still freakin' about the last episode when Calleigh said, "Thanks, babe.")



    I think what really makes me sick is when addicts put their children at risk like what Rebecca Lamar did. I'm glad she was going to jail for that, dumb b*tch.moreless
  • Just another bad episode...

    1.0
    This is the 100th episode of CSI: Miami and it should be great, exciting, interesting...But this episode is just disappointing, the whole episode is just rubbish. The body of Dakota Hudson is found dead in the pool, next to a dead man. The police seems to be blind, it's just right next to the dead body, and they did not realize her? Until a woman scream? This doesn't make any sense at all. A complete waste of my time to watch this episode. RUBBISH is the word to describe this episode.



    A complete rubbish episode and nothing happened at all, beside the death of Dakota Hudson and the Death Pool 100 list. I hope I can get my 1 hour back. One of the worst episode in CSI: Miami.moreless
  • "It's Perfect.....but completely fake"

    8.5
    As a metaphor for the entire CSI:Miami franchise this episode was utterly perfect. Revolving around an intricate plot that mostly involved very beautiful people walking around in skimpy clothing, and making use of the beautiful blue sky and sea this show encapsulates what the series has become.



    The pivotal moment is when the fake currency is uncovered. It's completely perfect, yet totally fake. Exactly like CSI:Miami. There are no ugly people, there's no bad weather, there's no cars that aren't top of the range. It is absolutely perfect. And about as far from genuine as you can get without aliens and vampires. In fact Buffy the Vampire Slayer has more in common with the real world that CSI:Miami. Other than that there is little to say about this episode. The forensics was unremarkable, and the plot completely tenuous. And why do small children trust Horatio? His method for talking to children is about as scary and creepy as it could be. He's the sort of guy they warn you about in "Stranger Danger" videos.



    However, the other notable point is that Emily Proctor looks terrific in black as well as white. I love it.moreless
  • 1/100th

    6.5
    For the 100th episode of CSI:Miami I expected a little more than your average episode, but that's pretty much what we got. All the standard tropes were there, Horatio playing stand in daddy for some neglected child, Wolfe proving once again he's not Speed, Calleigh looking stunning without a hair out of place no matter where she goes or what she does, and Alexx making small talk with a corpse. This time around they took a swipe at the evils of death pool gambling, something illegal in Miami, which came as a bit of a shock, I didn't think anything of that nature was illegal in Miami, and the still growing facination with the people who are famous just for being famous. Throw in a little counterfeiting and you've got an episode, not a great one, not even really a good one, and certainly not one that should fit the 100th episode slot, and you have to ask yourself what were the writers thinking of with that final scene walking along the beach with the team in the sunset?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Agent Elliot would have lost his job for his involvement in the stolen evidence from the lab in last year's season finale.

    • Calleigh claims that if the bullet that killed Dakota was fired outside of the water, it wouldn't have 'mushroomed' like it did, and therefore the shooter must have been in the water. However, seconds earlier she explained that the same thing happens when she test fires hollow point bullets and it showed a sequence of a bullet being shot into water from the air, contradicting her statement.

      Additionally, the following 'version' sequence shows a bullet being fired underwater that does not mushroom before it impacts.

    • When Horatio is questioning Rodrigo, we are shown a slow motion flashback to the poolside shooting. As Rodrigo fires an automatic pistol, you can see a full round of ammunition including the cartridge case and the bullet being ejected from the weapon. Once the bullet is fired, only the spent cartridge casing will be ejected.

    • This episode marks the 100th episode of CSI: Miami.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Calleigh: I guess somebody will always think it's easy to make a hundred.
      Horatio: But we... We know different, don't we?

    • (Frank recognizes a fiber Calleigh's examining)
      Det. Tripp: Agostina... Iverson's wife's a fan.
      Calleigh: You know, your knowledge of the fashion world it's- it's impressive. Do you have something you want to tell me?
      Det. Tripp: What? My ex-wife's favourite designer, she put me in hock with that stuff.
      Calleigh: Okay, if that's your story.

    • Eric: What was Dakota Hudson famous for, anyway?
      Calleigh: Lip synching, club openings, red carpet events... Oh! She was in the video for that Australian band that was from England...
      Eric: So basically, she has no talent. (Calleigh laughs)

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • In the scene where Frank Tripp tells Mr. Ice he needs a description of all of the jewelry stolen in the robbery, Mr. Ice tells him that he will only give Frank the sales records and not the designs because the designs are trademarked. Frank replies "Ok, fine Edison but I need them by yesterday." Frank is referring to famous inventor Thomas Edison who invented such things as the electric light and the phonograph.
