  • I liked is storyline very much

    I heard nothing about an experimental episode... so this one was in no way a disapointment... I liked it's storyline very much... In it we see something that I trully believe... what you see isn't always what you get... and you can't expect to know someone just with a couple of meetings or because someone told you something...



    The coincidence of the cop hiting the car of the man hired by the murder/biological father was for me a little too much... but except that... Very Good!moreless
  • The previews of this epsiode promised an experimenal episode with the ending first and the being at the end of the epsiode. Boy, I was so wrong with this one, because the second half of the epsiode when back to the normal way of telling a story.moreless

    From the previews of this episode I thought that this episode was going to be an experimental episode, which I like, where the entire episode is told backward, with the ending first and the being last. Boy, I was wrong with this episode, only the first half of the episode was told like that. The second half of the episode was told in the normal fashion. When that happen I started to lose interests in the episode.

    Which, made the entire episode disappointing to watch, because it was unfolding like a typical CSI:Miami episode and while there is nothing wrong with something like that. But, if you are going to do an experimental episode like the adds were promising, served it up as how the previews show it. Don’t fall back to the typical way of telling an episode’s story, with the being first, the middle second, and the ending, at the end.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: When Calleigh falls to the ground in the opening teaser, she remains there with her eyes wide open and not making a single move for several seconds, giving the impression she has been shot. However, when the event is "repeated" later in the episode, she gets up immediately and says she's fine.

    • Wolfe mentions after the shooting that Horatio's weapon is a "department issue 9mm." Horatio's weapon is a Sig Sauer P229 which are only made in .40 and .357 .

    • Goof: Vincent Lesca's driver's license number is listed as L42-940-634. However, this is impossible since New York licenses do not use any letters in identification numbers.

  • QUOTES (6)
