  • I love this episode.

    9.5
    Oh Great, a man is struggling for his life on the sea, with hundreds of sharks swimming in the sea. Then later on, he dies, after being bitten, and maybe eaten by the sharks. When Horatio arrives, he says: "This is a crime scene". This episode is great, I love this episode. But I hate the ending, where Horatio tells Marisol that he wants to marry her. Wasn't Horatio too old for Marisol? For the others, it's just perfect. This is one of the best episode in this season. Congratulations, Ildy Modrovich and Marc Dube, for an excellent episode in CSI: Miami.moreless

    A man is overboard and the sharks are going to him. He is eaten to death by the sharks. The man was pushed overboard. Captain says that he never seen sharks up this close. A 14 size shoe was found and some blood. His wife opened and stole 10 grand from the man. The Captain was an illegal dumper, and that's why the sharks were up so close. A woman is missing. She suspectedly has the bird flu. The musician unlocked the safe. The girl was strangled and Mandy pushed her step-father overboard b/c he walked up on her and the sailor.moreless

    5.0
    First of all i have never been on a cruise ship, hjowever i do have nautical expertise on larger boats and this episode was a little pathetic. Apart from the captain being totally irresponsible to an infant level, the fact that the body was found in this was is a little more absurd. It is possible to hide a body on a ship half that size without anyone noticing this or ever finding the body. The other part, the one with the newlywed father was a lot better and that part was good. Even though that after all that they still found the strap is a bit unbelievalbe, the storyline on how she snapped was pretty well written. Not sure if i efver want to meet a woman who could snap like that, she still looked mighty fine, snapped and all.moreless
  • The case was poorly handled, but the character focus made up for it.

    9.5
    I really liked this episode. I wanted not to like it, because the case was rushed through and poorly handled, but I still found myself enjoying it. There was a lot of focus on personal relationships, personal problems and the mole in the lab. It's building up for the season finally, I presume.



    The problem I had with the case was that it felt very secondary and like they didn't put any real effort into it. The two deaths were completely unrelated and I don't even get why they needed the storyline with the murdered girl. It felt out of place and they never did anything much with it. They spent so much time on the regular characters that they would have benefited from having just one death to solve. Instead they spread it out over two, and neither was covered enough. Both felt like they were just starting the investigations when alas the episode time was running out so they got a quick answer.



    But in the end the problems with the case they had didn't really bug me. There was enough going on with the characters that you didn't pay much attention to the case anyways. And I admire the fact that they managed to get several small character storylines brought up or developed, so we know basically where we stand for the last episodes of the season, yet they didn't make it seem scattered. The tension between Wolfe and Delko was brought up, the sense that Delko doesn't like his sister dating Horatio even though he gave his blessing was brought up, Horatio and Marisol were brought up, the drug charges against Delko were brought up... Along with some other minor stuff.



    Finally they gave some more oomph to the Horatio/Marisol thing. I like the idea of them as a couple, but they haven't really done much with it IMO. All they've really done is move the relationship ahead real fast, but they haven't given any real sense of actual love between the two characters. We never see them kiss, I don't think we've even seen them hug... My mom didn't even realise they were dating, she thought they were just friends. I don't get why they have had them decide to have children and get married yet they haven't show any essence of a loving relationship. This was the first time I can remember that they did that. They seemed to be an official couple and I think there was a "honey" in there somewhere. I don't know why they have been so scared to put any real body to the storyline; hopefully they'll put more of that into it in the next couple of episodes. I like the idea of the two as a couple, but it makes little sense to have them get married before we've seen them hug or kiss. They seem so platonic.



    Delko seems to be having a lot of problems in his life. His sister is really sick (though I'm very confused as to whether she's dying or just sick, they seem to go back and forth between those two), his sister is also dating his boss, he's got the drug thing hanging over his head, he's lost his girlfriend and there's irritation between him and Wolfe. I didn't see much of the first three seasons but from what I gather Delko's best friend was on the team and he got killed, and Wolfe took his place. If that assumption is true then Delko must be having a hard time accepting Wolfe into the team, replacing his friend. On top of that he seems to feel guilty still for what happened to Wolfe's eye. And on top of that Wolfe is now dating his ex-girlfriend. Wolfe on his side doesn't seem to understand why Delko doesn't completely accept him. There is definite negative energy between those two, even though they sometimes get along really well. It will be interesting to see what happens between them in the future episodes, now that the mole storyline is getting more focus.



    I think that's it for my shrink-wannabe analysis... at least for this week. Good episode!moreless
  • Nothing much really happened

    8.1
    The FBI looking into the crime lab did not get enough attention. The very end was stupid. Horatio agreeing to marry Delco's sister was a bad story line. The cruise ship murders were not believeable. The 16 year old girl killing her new step dad because her mother is a slut was stupid. And the other girl getting killed because she might have the bird flu... retarded.
