  • the gang investigates the death of two models

    10
    this was a very interesting episode..yes i thought it was absolutely perfect b/c it is completely what the show is all about and fits the summary of the show so perfectly..plus it shpws forensic evidence and criminal justice at its best..i just love watching all of that stuff in order..forensic evidence can be so many things now..and this case did do a wonderful job..i liked the cases of both models..it was extremely interesting b/c for one thing they were cute..but i must have been tired or something i couldnt figure out who did it and then when i found out who did i didnt see it comingmoreless
  • A good episode but not the best

    9.0
    An average episode. Not good enough for me to rate this episode a "10" but I still like this episode. Natalia Boa Vista has a unwelcome visitor-her bully ex-husband, who just came out from the jail. This must have affect Natalia's job, especially when Nick is a crime scene cleaner. Two male models are found dead, the CSI found one first, hide under a boat. Another one is found dead, apparently being pushed down from a higher place. Poor guy! Alexx is right, modelling is dangerous right now. They kill each others, like what happened to the two ladies at the end of the episode.



    Good episode but not the best in this series (Season 4 "Felony Flight" is much better). Much better than the previous episode "Death Pool 100".moreless
  • Male model gets killed, another male model gets killed and Natalia has apparently become the main character.

    9.2
    This was so good! I mean, it was so original! It was maybe a little extreme since everyone died; but that was so great about it! I mean, wow! They dida great job. That male model was just obsessed; I mean; cheek implants? Dude, get a life. Well I thought he was ugly.Eat this, pompous jerk. I loved that Janet girl. She was mean! How she even managed to kill her partner after she died with that lip gloss. Brilliant. Women are just mean!Calleigh was so cool in this episode, like when she said that he would make such a great photograph to go to jail.I loved it!!! And I know Natalia is on the show now; but please! I don't find her interesting. With the whole I-have-been-abused-by-my-husband thing. I know it's serious but not everything has to be about that; and I have a feeling that this is not the last thing we have seen of that. Conclusion: Killer episodemoreless
  • The male Model slant was interesting showing a side not often explored. The plot developed with a few twist and turns and the one doing all the others in really showed a cold competative edge that was scary. Having more than one murder was over the topmoreless

    9.0
    I loved the team dynamics but the plot was a bit of a stretch as more than one model was killed. But the over all story was good. I think the team needs even more interaction Horaito needs to be more humanized, sometimes it seems like he is too far removed from the others but they all try to look out for each other. While I love the show this episode seem overly stuffed with \"beautiful People\" yes it was the wonderful world of modeling but there should still be some average joes around too. The can become too smooth and glossy if not careful.moreless
  • is this a crimeshow?

    3.1
    Or is it a visual experiment?



    The csi shows were all about clever plot's strong characters, thsi season csi miami has become about colors, fades and way to much cliches



    the story start in the bedroom, cheating couple is cought, husband runs after the wife's lover (holding a gun) guy jumps in boat but it won't move (doh a body is in the propellor how likely is that) still the husband does not waste the quy



    after that is is a jumble of cheap lines leading to the 2 owners of a modeling agency and a co-model



    from there it becomes a domino effect

    one model is arrested for the murder another is pushed of a building by sideshow bob (paid for by the agency owners)

    then the one owner shoots the other before she herself dies in the csi building due to a poison lipgloss



    yes it all as believable as saying kari wurher has natural breastsmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Goof: When they tested Abby for GSR the bracelet was on her right arm but when we flashed to when she shot Janet, she shot her with her left hand and the bracelet was on her left arm.

    • Goof: When Natalia and Alexx are discussing whether the second model jumped or was pushed, the flashbacks visualise him falling face-down, but the body is lying face-up.

    • A complainant can't just show up and present a restraining order to a person, as Natalia's ex-husband did to her. A sheriff serves restraining orders to the respondent.

    • Goof: The memory card they got from the victims phone (Nokia N90) is not, as stated, a micro SD but a RS-DV MMC which is the only kind of memory card you can use in that phone.

    • How is it that there is a Temporary Restraining Order against Natalia and how could it destroy her job? A temporary restraining order is normally only in effect for 30 days (and normally the parties are given notice so that they can argue the validity of it). As it is named, it is only Temporary so that it would not destroy Natalia's job (unless she can't survive 30 days working the lab alone). Also, judges are able to put in cavets such as, they may be in each other's presence as long as there are other law enforcement officials present - thus enabling her to continue working crime scenes (although not alone). As she is the 'rookie' that should not be a problem.

    • Goof: When Natalia and Eric return to the murder scene the last time and Eric finds the bullet hole behind the photo, he doesn't first take a photograph of the scene before he disturbs it to show the hole to Natalia. He has disturbed the scene without before and after photos.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Calleigh:What's going on?
      Natalia: It's not good.
      Calleigh: You wanna talk about it?
      Natalia: I'm terrified of him Calleigh. He's capable of anything, and you know whats even crazier? My therapist think this is some kind of suppressed attraction.
      Calleigh:What do you think it is?
      Natalia: I don't know, but I just wanna kill him.
      Calleigh: I can understand that, but you may not want to say it out loud.
      Natalia:Thats good advice.

    • Horatio: Is there a reason Jason would want Steve dead?
      Abby: They're models they all want to kill each other.

    • Horatio: Why did you leave the scene?
      Animal Trainer: I didn't want to get involved
      Horatio: Well now you are.

    • Janet: (about her modelling agency) Our boys come to use with nothing, so we buy them clothes, we pay for their pictures, their gym memberships...
      Abby: ...veneers, liposuction.
      Janet: you have to understand that models are flakes… they run off, they get fat, they get hooked on drugs-
      Horatio: And they end up dead.
      Janet: Think what you want, I have a business to run.
      Horatio: So do I.

    • Janet: Can I go now?
      Ryan: Don't go far.
      Janet: I wouldn't dream of it. (stands up) Oh and by the way, that, uh, look is so last season. (Ryan looks down at his clothing)

    • (At the scene of the second victim)
      Alexx: Wow... Modeling is suddenly the most dangerous job in Miami.

    • (About the victim)
      Eric: Steve carry a cell phone?
      Natalia: He's a model, he probably lived on one.
