  • Stewardess killed on a flight and nobody sees anything! That's amazing!

    4.0
    There is a huge problem with whole scenario. We're expected to believe that the flight attendant's body is dropped through a trap door that is right next to one passenger's seat (the air marshal) but, since he wasn't in his seat at the time, nobody saw anything. Okay, let's say everyone was sleeping... oh wait, there was terrible turbulence, so everyone was awake! Okay let's say first class was empty except for the air marshal... couldn't be, they assigned two flight attendants to first class! You know, I've put up with the diminishing of the actors abilities, but now even the plots are diminishing. Are we expected to laugh?moreless

    In this episode of CSI Miami, the following happens. We open this episode in an airport, which a dead body coming out on a conveyor belt. The body is that of a stewardess and her name is Suzanne. We soon learn that was having an affair with a married pilot. We also learn in this episode that Ryan thinks that Eric and Calliegh are seeing each other and tells Natalia about it, but she doesn’t believe him as he has no proof. We also learn from one of her co-workers that Suzanne had a stalker. They soon have a suspect, from using handwriting samples in the forms of letter which Suzanne received. He admits to stalker her, but claims that he didn’t kill her. We soon learn that Suzanne seen one of her co-workers hiding drugs during the flight and was going to report her once the plane landed. So her co-worker drugged her and pushed her through the hatch believing that she would wake up later on.moreless
  • Melrose Place at 30K feet. You got your sex, drugs, jealousy, stalking, murder and who knows what else.

    8.0
    Okay, it's been a while since I've seen the show, but when did it become a teenybopper cast? Yeah, they've kept a lot of the 'older' people, but when that blonde in the morgue commented on the youngness of the victim, my first thought was "Yeah, and look who's talking, Doogie Howser!"



    It was a bit unbelievable that all that stuff could go on without being obvious to the passengers. And the romper room not showing up on the schematics? Please!



    I miss the good old days of Horatio whipping off his sunglasses and making overly dramatic statements before he catches the bad guys.moreless
  • Back to the Same ol' Miami.

    6.0
    Okay, honestly my first thought was Miami "borrowed" the death at 30k feet from NY, the body just didn't get found there. I found the DB coming down the baggage claim ramp a little over the top and not real believable which match the unbelievable "romper room" within the plane itself. The script gave you several motives as well as suspects but as in the ol' Miami, it was very predictable. I'm hoping they avoid the drug dependancy issue they hinted at last week. Although we saw no signs this week, but I think it's an overdone topic that needs to be left alone. The one bright spot within the episode was Kyle's observation skills coming to the surface hinting at the possibility of following in Daddy's footsteps, which I wouldn't be adverse too, but we'll have to see.moreless

    • Frank: Come on,sport. Step through the metal detector.
      Aaron: How about a little professional courtesy, buddy? I'm one of you.

      Ryan: Well, I guess we found the mile high club, huh?
      Natalia: And the last place that Suzanne Grady was seen alive.
      Ryan: Well that backs up the captain's story. I can't belive they had this little love nest in planes. You know, I think we need one of these.
      Natalia: You're right. We can convert fire-arms.
      Ryan: Sure. I can figure two people who would enjoy that.
      Natalia: Who?
      Ryan looks at her
      Natalia: Calleigh and Delko? No way! Do you have proof?
      Ryan: I don't need proof, I just have a feeling, but I don't want anything..
      Natalia: (interrupting Ryan)) Ah, La la la la. Ok, let's just see if we can see where everything went south for Suzanne.
