  • The season continues to push the boundaries of belief...

    I like sci-fi, but if I want to watch sci-fi I tune into a sci-fi show. The joy of the CSI franchise is it's grounding in reality, with storylines inspired by fact and the science cutting edge but true to life.

    I'll buy that the Miami lab is the best funded crime in the entire USA; I'll just about accept the "Eureka" holographic computer displays. But the magic gun that vaporizes?

    Seriously. It vaporizes. I'd expect more body tissue lying around after a bomb blast.

    As Monty Python might say, this show is getting far too silly.

    Get back to basics, good storylines with hard science. That's why I watch.

    That the cheesy one liners. And even they're thin on the ground this season.moreless
  • That's how you'll end up if you're stupid enough to try to kill my favorite CSI! Go, go, H.!

    Oh, my... how dumb am I to fall for such tricks again? I just love seeing imaginary people to deal with imaginary situations and being imaginarily brave with it.

    The whole idea of gun trafficing wasn't bad. As I watched the first scene where the gun dealers were just being blown up I thought it was LOST (you know, the bad black smoke killing people) or any other sci-fi show. But it was nice to see that even the surrealistic beginning can start a good case.

    I like Horatio more and more. We get to see many aspects of his personality this season (maybe it's been shown before too, but I decided to start watching CSI Miami from S6). I know that he is a bit out-of-space with the faces, gestures, poetic/patetic quotes of his and so on, but he's one of a kind. He did even say "beat it!", hehe, which is a contra to how ironicly kind he usually pretends to be.

    Well, another thing is Delko. Yeah, he is a guy with problems, here--you have Speedle, there--he was shot and almost died. Tries to be tough when he's not and absolutely doesn't want any helf, although Calleigh is soon gonna get herself blisters on her feet from circling him because he wants him SO BADLY to confide to her... I should be crazy in love with him but the truth is I can's stand him. He's weird in the negative meaning of 'weird'. I hope he doesn't get too much screen time.moreless
  • The "Vaporizer"...creepy...

    A very scary, creepy, huge weapon named as the "Vaporizer" has been stolen. This weapon is very, very creepy, and you will feel the same thing with me when you watch this episode. Aggh, luckily I enjoyed horror movies, or I will spent my entire life with nightmares. Good episode, compared to the previous episode "Dangerous Son" and "Chain Reaction". I like this episode. I don't know why did others viewers dislike this episode and I don't care. To me, this is one of the best episode I've ever watch in this series. Good episode with creative plot and awesome directing.moreless
  • An illegal gun falls into the wrong hands. While the CSIs investigate, they find that U.S. Customs is involved.

    I really liked the plot of this episode, and character development on Eric Delko was also done well. Even if the storyline focuses around a weapon that may or may not be real, I was really caught up in the possibility of it getting into the wrong hands. CSI: Miami often will bring current events like the war in Iraq and Florida state issues into the storyline, and thus brings me more into the episode and puts me more on the edge of my seat. Horatio Caine's rash shooting at the end was a little surprising. Understandable, but he generally shoots to disarm, not kill.moreless
  • Is this the X-files?

    I have to admit I was intrigued when the show started. At first I thought, " Are we on the right channel? is this the X-files?" But then soon enough Horatio showed his face. I liked the espisode! I shocked myself, even after seeing the poor reviews it got! As always though, Miami seems to wrap things up too quickly, and I feel robbed of longer plots. The show started with eerie music, and one of the best murder scenes I've seen on a TV show! Vaporizing guns!! Are they real? I don't want to know, it does make for good TV though. After that the show was typical Miami, slimy criminals, Wolfe sniffing around, and possible shady cops. I'll just rewind the first 3 minutes over and over again. And like Miami, I have come to a quick finish.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: When Eric is checking the Lancaster's laptop and somebody is remotely clearing the HDD, Calleigh said "Turn it off" Eric then responded "I can't they overriding it." This statement is not true as the laptop as any other machine needs power - Eric should just take off the battery or AC cable to stop the connection, later not to use the laptop itself, the HDD disc could be accessed from different machine

    • The company Metal Storm Limited is developing weapons similar to the DX4 Vaporizer. It has developed and test fired a prototype which fires 180 electronically initiated stacked projectiles from 36 barrels at a rate of 1,000,000 rounds per minute.

    • Goof: When Delko is searching for evidence, a cigarette butt is shown in closeup. This butt is laying on a crate close to a fence. Delko, however, picks up a butt from the ground further from the fence.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Calleigh: You know whatever is said between us stays between us, right? Did you freeze?
      Eric: No, I didn't. It's just when the, uh... when he started shooting, it took me back to that day. I, uh... I felt like I was getting shot all over again.
      Calleigh: Well, why don't we just focus on the here and now? We've got a shooter to catch.

    • Butler: You're on the losing side of this one, Leiutenant. I can fire a thousand rounds before you even get a shot off.
      (Horatio shoots, killing Butler)
      Horatio: Apparently it only takes the one.
