  • The team probes a fatal two-car collision.

    This was the best episode of CSI: Miami I've seen in a long time. Admittedly, I tend to watch Castle, but "Point of Impact" actually seemed to concentrate on telling a story, as the show did in the early seasons. Horatio didn't drive off halfway through the episode to investigate a separate case on his own, there was no Delko around to huff and puff over anything (or for Calleigh to express concern over a brain injury or whatnot), and the CSIs were actually gathering and analyzing evidence, as opposed to acting like cops who put on lab coats for a scene or two. Even Horatio wore a lab coat in a scene. It was interesting how one set of CSIs would pose a question and in the next scene another CSI or set of CSIs would be getting the answer. The CSIs may have been a little quick to accuse people (think Catherine on CSI seasons 1-3), and if you know there's a possibility of getting a false positive from a corpse, you'd think taking the blood-alcohol a different way would be standard practice, but those are minor quibbles. Overall, with it's greater emphasis on storytelling over fancy establishing shots "Point of Impact" was a marked improvement over what I've come to expect from this show.
