    This episode is written by Elizabeth Devine (a former CSI), Anthony E. Zuiker and Ann Donahue (Creator of this series) and directed by Scott Lautanen. A crossover episode that concludes on "CSI NY" begins with a convicted serial killer who escapes after sabotaging an airplane that was flying him from New York to Miami, where he allegedly buried a body. After fleeing the crash site, the man goes on a killing spree and abducts a college student. Mac Tayor arrives to help Horatio track the killer since Mac originally arrested the man in New York. I LOVE this episode. The BEST EPISODE in CSI: Miami. The writers should do this again.moreless

    I wasnt a fan of Crossovers until i saw "MIA/NY Non-Stop" And Now I Love Crossovers Like it This 2nd Miami/NY Crossover is My 2nd Favorite Episode of CSI: Miami Below "Witness To A Murder". David Caruso & Gary Sinise Play off each other Really Well and I Just love watching them in action together I hope they do more crossovers together in the future!
  • I love a good crossover episode.

    Crossovers can be either quite pointless or work brilliantly. With this show it works brilliantly, since it's a crossover from one spin-off to another. It seems like a logic step.



    I really liked seeing Mac and Horatio work together. I missed the episode which set up CSI NY, so this is the first time I have seen them interact. I wouldn't mind seeing more crossovers between these two shows, though I don't think I'd want to see a crossover with the original show. Both Mac and Horatio are more front-runner figures while Grissom is a lot more anonymous in that aspect. I don't think he would really fit in with the other two.



    Anyhoo, the episode was really interesting. This is the first time I've seen Badge Dale in anything other than 24, quite the change to go from Jack Bauer deciple to vicious killer. He did a good job though, I believed him as a cold blooded killer. The storyline with the murdered woman worked really well, especially with the little boy being so central to the case. The only thing I thought was odd was that they got so riled up over finding her husband's business card in her pocket. After all, they were married, she probably had his business card on her every now and then.



    Comparing this episode with the one where they are in New York, this one is much better. Mac and Horatio interact more, there's more focus on the CSI doing their job and since it's the start up episode it has the advantage of getting you more interested. This episode felt like a real crossover, with the two central characters working together to solve a case.moreless

    it was an ok epi. the american accent didnt fit the blond musician wanna be, cos i remeber him as mr. sachs from ALIAS and the brit accent fitted perfectly. it was good there were no squabbles between the csi agents this episode. seriously the CD thing was a flogged issued really after one year? give me a break. but i love the series!

    Usually I find manhunt episodes of crime dramas edge of the seat but I found this one dull and predictable so much so that I was adequately able to follow it whilst reading Classic Rock magazine (Very interesting expose on Prog Rock by the way) it seemed to have the series continued and misplaced focus on Horatio who doesn't seem to do very much crime scene work at all.



    The other characters were underused in their usual supporting roles whilst Horatio drove all over Miami being one step behind.



    It also seems odd how fast Mac Taylor got there. Questions are also raised about the transport of dangerous prisoners. Why not move them in a secure police van rather than a plane where they can pretty much have free movement? It seems like asking for trouble. The entire episode felt formulatic and drawn out.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: Horatio refers to sending out the Pulse. Pulse is an electronic technology that is utilized to disable all electronics in automobiles. All newer vehicles have electronic fuel injection, electronic fuel pumps, electronic spark and electronic ignition. Shorting out these components stops the vehicle instantaneously.

    • Goof: During the opening scene when the 4 20-somethings get shot, at least two are in the middle of the dirt road, but when the fugitives drive off in the car, all 4 bodies are in the grass.

    • This is a fourth time a plane crash is used in the show. The other episodes were Golden Parachute, Not Landing, and Money Plane.

    • Goof: After one year, unused car's battery should have been dead and it would be impossible to turn the radio on. The car was in the lot for a year but somehow the light on the CD player/radio was still blinking.

    • Goof: Wouldn't the CSI team have checked the CD player as part of the initial investigation? It just seems a bit odd that they passed over processing the entire dashboard, when CSIs by nature are so incredibly thorough.
