  • the team investigates the murder of a young woman after she was auctioned off to the highest bidder

    10
    this was a very interesting episode indeed..spoiler..it was very interesting how once again they found themselves getting involved with another government worker and sort of blowing their cover or ruining their investigation..the person they pick up as a suspect is actually a homeland security agent and to keep the young girl from finding out her identity she blindfolded her so she could get her work done..the interesting part comes with the fact that this agent bugged the room so now they can get voices and time of murder..again technology played a huge part as they used the voice analysis..i love forensicsmoreless
  • Terrorist attack...

    8.0
    Horatio and his team investigate the death of a woman during a party. The evidence leads them to the federal agents and they are lead to a huge crime that can put the whole Miami in danger. Later on, the CSIs find out the terrorist have plastic explosive and they intended to explode the nuclear station. Horatio, together with the Homeland Security, must stop them.



    You know what? This is not a very good episode. This is only average. The only thing that is interesting about this episode is the scene where we thought Calleigh had been shot. The others is just normal, nothing surprising. But still good compared to the other episodes.moreless

    I love watching CSI MIAMI a lot but I just feel that some of the episodes have a yeah right taste about them and this was definitley one of them. I find it so hard to believe that Horatio found out more information to stop a terrorist cell in one day when Homeland Security had probably been working on it for months. I didn't think that this episode quite deserved the classification of jumps the shark but it was definitley not far off. At the end of the day I thought it was great viewing so I must be a huge fan of that kind of thing. I love this whold Calliegh and Jake thing. Wonder where it will go.moreless
  • Horatio Caine vs. Terrorist SPOILERS

    8.5
    The story is far too ambitious for a one hour CSI show. The whole point of CSI is the whole "crime scene IVESTIGATION" but in this one they solved the murder very quickly and glossed over how they solved it very quickly. This was obviously done to make room for the other plot which is a big terrorist plot to blow up a nuclear power plant. This is way over their heads and the show really should stick to investigating single crimes like the used to.



    This plot would usually be done in "24" and would take the whole 24 hours of TV to pan out. This was done in less than an hour and so felt rushed. There is still no real explanation as to why Horatio Caine is trying to solve the terrorist plot when he heads such a small department.



    The story is too adventurous but it is well executed and the episode itself is still good TV.moreless
  • Gee, who needs Jack Bauer?

    1.0
    The crack CSI team finds out that a terrorist cell has put a plot in motion to destroy a nuclear facility by crashing a semi filled with explosives into it. Of course, Caruso is able to elicit a confession from one of the plotters in about 15 seconds, and just by talking to her! Sure, the crime lab COULD call someone presumably better qualified than the supervisor of a forensics lab (like, you know, SWAT or a military jet...) to stop an explosives filled semi piloted by evil men who want to nuke southern Florida. But that would actually be LOGICAL! Instead, the police decide to wait for 'H' to fly to the gates of the facility in a helicopter, get out as the truck continues to advance at speed, take a position behind a WAITING SNIPER RIFLE, and fire the single shot that will cause the truck to explode spectacularly just feet from the gate. Jack Bauer, you're no Horatio Kane!



    And this is one of the most popular shows on television? It’s more of a fantasy than Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but at least Buffy didn’t make any pretense to existing in a realistic, rational world and featured sympathetic characters. Fans of this show are just plain stupid, period.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Nitpick: Out of all the possible destinations, Ryan and Dan miraculously deduce that the truck is heading to Turkey Point, based on the single fact that a large vehicle left the port a half-hour ago.

    • Goof: The explosives detector identifies the chemical residue in the cargo container as PETN, a type of plastic explosive. On hearing that the container could have held as much as 10,000 pounds of explosive, Callie remarks, "That's more than they used at Oklahoma City".

      The Oklahoma City bomb was a bomb using two and a half tons of fertilizer mixed with other explosives, not plastic explosive. The two types do not compare well because of the earlier bomb's mixture of ingredients.

    • Goof: When Calleigh is talking to Jake at the promenade, as she walks out you can see the microphone device below her shirt on her lower back.

    • Goof: In the first flashback of the bedroom scene the dialogue is different between the girls than the two following flashbacks. "You are so sexy" is said while the blindfolding is happening, the next time there is a flashback it is said while she is planting the bug.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Jake: Gotta admit, we are a good team.
      Calleigh: We have our moments.

    • (After Calleigh gets shot confronting a suspect, Jake shot him, but he wasn't supposed to be there)
      Jake: Calleigh...Calleigh, are you okay? (she sits up and pulls the bullet from her bulletproof vest) Thank god for Kevlar.
      Calleigh: I will deal with you later.

    • Calleigh (looking at photos to find a potential suspect): What about this girl? Who's she?
      Jake: She's unidentified.
      Calleigh: She was with Peter at the party.
      Jake: Really?
      Calleigh: Yeah, she was pretending to be his girlfriend.
      Jake (motioning to the photo): Well, she's giving him hell. I wouldn't take that from somebody I paid for.
      Calleigh: Good to know. We gotta find her.
      Jake: I want in.
      Calleigh: I thought I wasn't any fun?
      Jake: Maybe I feel bad because I got Rebecca in the middle of this.
      Calleigh: Or maybe you feel bad 'cause you're not in the middle of it. I'm sorry, Jake. I can't.

    • Jake: I thought you didn't need my help.
      Calleigh: I would take help from anybody right now, Jake, even you.

    • Calleigh: You had nothing on this guy!
      Jake: Yes, I did. Kinkella is dealing herion out of his clubs in Miami, gotta be worth millions.
      Calleigh: Well, if you're so sure, then why send in the girl?
      Jake: Because I couldn't get in. And they were auctioning off beautiful girls.
      Calleigh: And you couldn't have found a young police officer?
      Jake: Well, not unless they let me use you. (Calleigh rolls her eyes)

    • Peter Kinkilla: It's my house, it's my letter opener, in my bedroom. If you find any of that criminal I'm sure you'll let me know.
      Horatio: That...is my job.

    • (Alexx is aligning a victims hand to the camera so that Ryan can take pictures of it) Ryan: Can you do me a favor and make the victim's hand a little more perpendicular to the camera? Alexx (points the camera at herself so Ryan can see her on the monitor): You wanna come down here and try from my end, honey? Ryan: No, Alexx, you're doing a wonderful job. (Ryan aligns the pictures so they form the ring) Calleigh (enters the room): So that's our missing ring. It looks small, what size is it? Ryan: It's a 4 1/2, got a lot of detail though. This is basically what the ring would look like. Calleigh: Great job. Ryan: Thanks. Alexx (from monitor): Hey, hey, hey. What about me? Calleigh: You're fabulous.

    • Horatio: What's your interest in Kinkella?
      DHS Agent: That's a "need to know"
      Horatio: I need to know.

    • Eric: (nailing a suspect) You're quite an investor… pandering, drug dealing, money laundering.

    • Calleigh: (to a suspect) You took her life, now we're going to take yours.

    • Calleigh: I cannot believe I took a bullet for you.
      Jake: What are you talking about? I can't believe I shot a man for you!
      Calleigh: I'm the one in pain!
      Jake: I've got the emotional scars!

    • The title, Going, Going, Gone

      In an auction, an auctioneer's last 3 words before the sale is final are these. The episode deals with auctioning women for charity.
