  • The impending divorce of Mr. and Mrs. Atherton gets so dramatic that Horatio and his team are forced to intervene. While this is happening people who have connections to the feuding couple are mysteriously turning up dead. The insane mystery begins.moreless

    Welcome to divorce of the future. As another review of this episode pointed out, there is a little too much of The War of the Roses in this episode. Also, there are a few implausabilities (A boat can be sunk with two shotgun blasts?) but that aside "Just Murdered" is one of the better episodes of this season. The acting by everybody is quite good and I found myself very interested in the story and how it would turn out. However I did not care for that stupid subplot involving the con woman from Delko's past.moreless
  • Okay, I'm impressed, I really am.

    This was a surprising episode. I was kind of hoping it wasn't the kid because then this episode would have totally sucked. Finding out it was the husband that killed the gym trainer and the pool boy who killed the the guy with the Lamborghini weren't surprising at all. Finding out it was both Anthertons', who killed the lawyer, was. OMG Peck on the check! When I heard they were going to kill, I thought lip-locking, not a peck on the check. Poor Eric, that dumb $^#$@^#@$, uh, lawyer going after him after he was shot. Then that stupid house wife wanting her money. I'm glad Calleigh put her in her place, even if it was only for a few minutes.

    But, I think I feel the worst for Nathan. His parents fighting all over their stuff. The ending for this was cool, with the way they were flashing to their wedding day. It wasn't annoying, either.moreless
  • Divorce gone overboard.

    I know that we have to suspend disbelief when watching shows like CSI. But this episode really pushed that over the edge!

    One - does a District Attorney even bother to show up at the "scheduled the same day as the arrest" motion to exclude the evidence? Two - How does Eric get to go back in the field "because Horatio is getting the attorney disbarred?" Gee, guess none of the other defense attorneys will ever think of questioning his work. Shhhh. Maybe nobody noticed!

    Three - How does Horatio get an attorney disbarred? Four - When there is a violent incident on a boat on Star Island, why is the head of the crime lab even there? Much less the first responder on the scene? Guess they're all out of patrolmen in Miami-Dade.

    Yes - they have to condense and use the lead actors for all of the action, but my enjoyment of this episode was very much eroded by the illogic.moreless
  • This just goes to show how nasty divorce can be. ERIC AND CALLEIGH HAD THE CUTEST MOMENT! I almost screamed!

    This episode had a great meaning. it goes to show how far people will go to win money or other items. I felt bad for the kid,Nathan Atherton. Eric and Calleigh had a beautiful moment. If you like HipHugger's then you would scream! This episode is exactly why I watch this show! It had it all in this. Horatio's chessy one-liner and the AWSOME kiss on the cheek. This also goes back in Eric's history alittle. That woman that tricked Eric is back and I have to say she makes my blood boil. All-over-all it was a AWSOME episode! watch it!moreless
  • Divorce is deadly. Just don't get married (that appears to be a lot easier and safer)

    She kissed him! On the cheek! Well that kinda sucked. But hey, at least there were other characters than Horatio in this episode. God I am so excited. Where the hell is Jake? This is so cool! This is nothing compared to CaRWash, this is going to be one hell of a love triangle. *sighs* This episode was crazy and silly, but I laughed so hard and I loved the characters so well, that I had to give this episode a good mark. How do they manage? I mean, everytime there's personal stuff, the episode is totally screwed up. It wasn't that bad off course, but there are better episodes (aren't there always?) If not for the crazy deaths of the men and women, you should really see the episode, just to look if you're able to follow it. I'm telling you, these people are hilarious. I mean, killing someone with a knife from your wedding cake? Absolutely Fabulous! Or how extravagance can be freaky good.moreless
