    Imagem coprletamente equivocada que passam do Brasil no exterior. Em primeiro lugar a nossa lngua NO ESPANHOL e sim PORTUGUS. Como que eles vo na favela que segundo eles " o lugar mais perigoso da cidade" vrios homens que eles tentaram mostrar que eram traficantes que mais pareciam mexicanos falando espanhol, cruzando os braos impedindo a passagem deles, isso foi completamente ridculo. Logo depois aparece outro garoto da favela falando INGLS fluentemente, os meninos que moram na favela vivem com o dinheiro contado, um curso de ingls inimaginvel pagar devido sua pobreza e o ensino pblico no ensina ingls com qualidade. incrvel como eles no sabem nada a respeito da nossa lngua, dos nossos costumes. Em terceiro lugar, o local onde eles acharam o sobrinho do Horatio, tinha homens com tacos na mo SEM CAPACETE e andando em volta deles de moto, foi simplesmente surreal. expressamente proibido andar de moto sem capacete aqui, aquela cena foi uma grande mentira porque quem mora no Rio no so aqueles "animais " que o seriado passou.E quarto lugar, eles vm em um pas que no o deles, matam um homem e nada acontece? Pra quem no sabe o Brasil no terra de ningum, aqui h leis e devem ser cumpridas, bandido e mocinho existe em TODO o mundo. Antes de mostrarem oque querem, quem "vende " a nossa imagem no exterior, deveria estudar muito bem o pas antes de mostrar absurdos como foi os que eu vi, no s apenas do Brasil, mas de todos os outros pases. As favelas existem claro, h perigo l como em qualquer lugar do mundo, porm no apenas traficantes que moram l. H pessoas de bem, que acordam cedo para trabalhar e trazer o sustento da casa, portanto, seria bom que a imagem dessas pessoas fossem respeitadas. Nem todo mundo que mora na favela gostaria de morar l, mas no encontra outra opo devido ao custo de vida muito alto. Portando conheam as outras culturas antes de mostrar mentiras.moreless
  • Awesome!

    I have got to say I loved this episode! It was a great way to start the season off and I can't wait to buy the season on DVD! I love that they started off with them in Brazil going after Riaz, and that Natalia became a main character! Plus they brought back Yelina and Ray Jr.! Even though it was sad that Ray Sr. died, I'm still happy they brought those characters back. I've noticed people are saying that the episode wasn't correct, but aren't you just supposed to enjoy the show, not be so technical? Anyway, definitely a 10/10 for me!moreless
  • Please, spare me the crap! Are Americans that ignorant only in movies and TV shows or is it true in the real world, too?

    1.0
    OK! What if a Brazilian TV series showed, in one of its episodes, a scene supposed to take place in the United States, in which a Republican senator is sniffing cocaine in his office, right in front of a few important entrepreneurs he's having a formal meeting with? And what if that vey senator is then shown asking his secretary to call a number found in the personal ad of a prostitute offering her services in order to hire her for that afternoon, let's say, at his own office? What if such a stupid TV show made it all seem as something that usually happens in the US?



    I bet every single American who saw such an episode would speak up with their fair complaints that it was the most ignorant view of what things are like in real-world America ever imagined. Well... So, "mutatis mutandis" (Latin for "with those things having been changed which need to be changed" or simpler "the necessary changes having been made"), allow me to do it now! 1) There has never been such a thing like Brazilian authorities importing Brazilians who commit crimes abroad in order to bring them to trial in our country. That's not how extradition laws work nor is it something Brazilian police authorities are interested in doing, especially because, except for the idiots who wrote that episode script for CSI: Miami, everybody can clearly see how absurd it is. At this very moment, a quick glance at US newspaper sites on the internet can bring up a few stories of Brazilians who have committed crimes in the US - all of them have been subjected to the laws ruling the region where the crimes have been committed. Last but not least, let me remember here that the consensus in international law is that a country doesn't have any obligation to surrender an alleged criminal to a foreign state, as one principle of sovereignty is that every state has legal authority over the people within its borders.



    2) A Brazilian drug trafficker whose name is Antonio RIAZ (!?) and who speaks SPANISH (!!!?) is another laughable detail to point out here.



    3) Two noticeably gringo-looking Americans walking up a referred-to-as "dangerous favela" in search of that bizarre figure with a Hispanic name and speaking Spanish who is allegedly a native of a Portuguese-speaking country where people tend to have Portuguese surnames is another hilarious part of that stupid episode - first, they'd never get to the starting point of their criminal hunt at such a favela without having an unpleasant encounter with someone who'd rob them at gunpoint; then, they'd never much farther than that without being machine-gunned by the traffickers who rule the most "dangerous favelas" in Rio. 4) A boy who lives in such a favela, who is able to speak very good English with Horatio and Delko is still more ridiculous, inasmuch as those tend to be boys who hardly ever go to school and are practically semi-illiterate, incapable of mastering even their mother tongue.



    5) Then, the scenes showing Horatio and Delko in search of RIAZ (!!!?) in the city were really shot in Rio. Nevertheless, the scenes are in fact a very confusing mixture of shots from several different parts of the city, sometimes far apart from each other, but shown in the episode as if they were near or even in the same place. 6) The fact that they killed the RIAZ (!!!!!!?) later on, and leave his corpse lying there, as if nothing serious had happened, and then leave the country with no problems at all for having killed someone here (where they're nothing but tourists instead of being regarded as police officers) is another insult to the intelligence of those who have at least a little of it.



    In the end, CSI : Miami in its first episode of the fifth season showed that, apart from being a long known not-to-be-taken-seriously series about investigative procedures (which are very distant from what a real-life CSI's job is), also presents itself as a stupid-making, uninformative fiction in respect to the world as portrayed in the show.moreless
  • The fifth season begins with Horatio and Eric traveling to Rio determined to bring Antonio Riaz to justice for Marisol's murder. The journey takes a grim turn as Horatio's brother, sister-in-law and nephew become entangled in Riaz's new plans.moreless

    7.5
    The fifth season of CSI: Miami certainly did not get started off with a bang, but not on the wrong foot either. For one thing, as another review of this episode pointed out, the episode moved way too fast. There was not enough plot development before the climax which was unsatisfying though I did like how everything came together as Horatio found his nephew. The story line that took place at the lab could have been better as well. It was way too neat. It wrapped itself up too fast. Hopefully the season will get better.moreless
  • North American Directors, Be smarter!

    2.0
    ow my god!!! I am surprised in how North Americans don´t know anything about Brazil... and more impressive is the ability of mistakes that they can make! If you are going to shoot sth in a country please study the country first!! Stupid people!! Rio de Janeiro is not where they showed (like they said in the lines up), the song in the back, the names, the spanish language, and the part they show the buses are NOT from Brazil and maybe from Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela or someplace there. And that crime happens in Mexico not in Brazil. Please people be smarter!! It´s the same as if someone makes a movie about the USA and shows Canadian customs and crimes and speaking French, only showing the Statue of Liberty. It´s a very stupid mistake, isn´t it?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • When Scott shoots his stepfather outside the crime lab, Natalia and Ryan hear the shot and spin round, after which follows a 'frozen time' camera shot leading out of the lab to where Scott is holding the gun with the bullet still in midair.

      It would have to be the slowest bullet ever for it still to be travelling that long after it was fired.

    • Continuity error: When Yalena and Horatio are trying to locate Ray Jr., she goes to to put the GPS device in Horatio's left hand, but then the shot cuts and you see him taking it with his right.

    • Goof: During the initial scenes of the episode, were Riaz runs into Horatio outside the police station, a bus passes by and Horatio disappears behind the bus. The bus didn't really go between Riaz and Horatio, it passed to one side of them, the camera angle made the disappearing trick possible, plus there was a blue car in between Horatio and Riaz.

    • When Horatio sends the scan of the leaf via PDA to the lab in Miami from Rio, there is a "CSI Shot" zooming out of Brazil and into Miami from a satellite's point of view. However, the zoom out of Brazil seems to originate from around Recife, a city near the equator, which is over 1,500 miles northeast of Rio de Janiero, where Horatio and Eric are supposed to be.

    • Natalia Boa Vista has become a CSI, and is currently being reluctantly trained by Ryan.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Calleigh: Okay, look, Boa Vista, your career isn't over because of this, but you see how hard things can be when people take what you say out of context.
      Natalia: That's a mole dig, isn't it?
      Calleigh: No. No, it absolutely isn't. It's a reality. We're on the same team now. We present a unified front to the world, regardless of how we're feeling at the moment, okay?

    • Riaz: I don't think you know how this is going to end, Caine.
      Horatio: I know exactly how it's going to end.
      Riaz: Go home.
      Horatio: I will, Antonio, when this is over.

    • Yelina: Why would anyone cut the tips off of latex gloves?
      Horatio: To make heroin pellets.
      Yelina: Are you saying my son is muling drugs?

    • Ryan: Just because your husband was a bastard doesn't mean they all are.
      Natalia: That's low... Ryan.
      Ryan: No, Natalia. That's low.

    • Ryan: Now hold on. There's nothing that says I have to take a trainee with me. I can process a crime scene by myself, thank you.
      Calleigh: That's true... but you won't.
      Ryan: Are you sure you want this to be your first act as boss for the day?
      Calleigh: It's my fifth, so get going.

    • Ryan: Calleigh Duquesne, large and in charge... by large, you know I mean in terms of your reputation, and responsibility, and... you look very beautiful today.
      Calleigh: Well, that's a... that's a nice save.

    • Cooper: You know it suits you.
      Calleigh: What?
      Cooper: Being boss.
      Calleigh: It's temporary.
      Cooper: Okay, Lieutenant Duquesne.
      Calleigh: The payscale'd be nice though.
