  • It is Ryan's own fault.

    9.0
    Well we have a car chase that leads to a bridge where when it is raised there is a dead guy with his eyes shot out swinging from the gurders. Did I mention he was tied to the Mob. This leads us to college kids and their project. There is another Mob murder before it is all over with and one of the college kids is able to walk free because of no evidence. Ryan wrecks a vehicle and is told to see a doctor by Horatio and he has an infection that is really bad and is unable to work. He has no one to blame but hisself. I mean the coroner lady and Calleigh have both told him to do something about it.moreless
  • Interesting storyline, but... they did it earlier in the season.

    6.5
    The basic storyline for this episode was pretty interesting, and there were some unexpected twists and turns along the way. I always prefer the episodes that have several suspects with good motive, so that you can't predict right off the bat who the killer is.



    The big problem with this episode however is that they did the same thing a few weeks ago, in "Urban Hellraisers". That episode was about college students committing crimes as they appear on a video game, and the CSIs have to figure out what will happen next in the game. This time it was about college students committing crimes as they happen in a script, and the CSIs have to figure out what will happen next in the script. Far too similar to each other.moreless
  • Same crap every week!

    1.2
    Every week it's the same thing over and over and over again with this show:



    Horatio stands over the body, Horatio is the first on on the scene, Horatio uses his SO-CALLED street smarts to catch the murderer, while the rest of the team through a few scienctic evidence in.



    Just cancel this show nad get on with it.

    Evidence links a screen play to a series of murders. A couple robs a store and while they're arrested they notice a hanging. A man was shot in the eyes. Joker was shoved in his pockets. The bullet was found in the trunk and was therefore killed in there. The murder was a replica of an upcoming screen play. The club owner's gun was found and it was a 9 mil. They killed the "snitch" the snitch was cuz. The mob guy killed Cuz b/c he was a snitch. The real organizer had to be let go b/c they had no evidence on him.moreless

    • Horatio: Mr. Wolfe? You got a minute?
      Ryan: Yeah. I was actually coming to find you.
      Horatio: I understand, uh...I understand that a trainee dropped off your evidence .
      Ryan: Yeah, I actually got a little car accident on the way back to the lab.
      Horatio: Are you okay?
      Ryan: Yeah, fine, I'm totally fine, but I...I was stuck there, I couldn't leave, so I called Nathan.
      Horatio: Okay. Why didn't you call the team?
      Ryan: I figured everyones hands were full. But H, don't worry, the chain of custody is tight.
      Horatio: Mr. Wolfe, I'm, I'm not worried about the evidence.
      Ryan: Right, my eye. H, this woman, she came out of nowhere...
      Horatio: (interrupts ) Mr. Wolfe, have you had your eye checked yet?
      Ryan: No sir, not yet. I'm busy with the case.
      Horatio: I...I think it's time to do that.
      Ryan: Okay.
      Horatio: Thank you.

    • Cuzz: I was just a "gopher" man.
      Frank: Well, in that case (Pulls a gun out of a filing cabinet) you should have buried that in your hole, (To Horatio) 9mm (To Cuzz) filed under "S" for stupid.

    • Calleigh: What are the first 40 pages about?
      Eric: Kid gets a job at a restaurant washing dishes, he insults some big mob boss who then decides to take him under his wing.
      Calleigh: Is that it?
      Eric: Life's too short, I'm gonna spare you the rest.

    • Horatio: Sounds to me like this is a very important opportunity for you, and perhaps... perhaps your last hope.
      Meyer: Well now you're just being cruel.

    • Norman: I'm a movie producer. I glorify violence, I don't engage in it.

    • (Finding a match in CODIS)
      Horatio: Norman Stein.
      Valera: In the system for an attempted rape charge last year.
      Horatio: Well welcome to strike two Norman!

    • Valera: That noose was a pain in the neck.

    • Calleigh: So you believe the Professor, that someone stole his car and then ever so kindly put it back?

    • Eric: He must have been shot in the car.
      Calleigh: The car could have absorbed all the blood and the bullet.
      Eric: Which means that a portion of our primary crime scene drove away.

    • (About a gun that ties him to a murder)
      Salucci: If I remember correctly they never found that gun.
      Frank: Mob works in mysterious ways, doesn't it?

    • Frank: Talk too much, you get the Colombian necktie. See too much...
      Horatio: ... and you never see again.

    • Alexx: (about the victim) There's no bruising around his neck. This baby boy was dead before he played Hangman.

    • Frank: (picking up the money Sienna scattered) Beats pennies from heaven.

    • Horatio: ( To Joey Salucci – A mob boss with a real estate business as cover) If I find your DNA on that hanging rope, the only real estate you'll be dealing with is a six-by-nine cell…

    • Eric walks by, reading the script and smiling
      Calleigh: Hey! I see you're doing some light reading.
      Eric: (laughs) These writers never met a cliche they didn't use...

    • Eric: The professor seems more 8-track than ipod to me. (as he finds the ear bud from an ipod in the trunk of the professor's car)

    • Norman Stein: You don't understand! They don't even reveal who the killer is.
      Horatio: That's my job.

    • Frank: The drawbridge gave us a two'fer Horatio.
      Horatio: One is closed. One is just presenting.

    • Frank: Looks like a mob hit, Horatio.
      Horatio: Yes, and it's time to hit back.
