  • Quite possibly the worst episode of CSI-Miami I've ever seen. The acting was HORRIBLE and the story was weak. It's unbelievable that this is what you get after the writers strike.moreless

    It's unbelievable that this is what you get after the writers strike. It's as if this was written by the drunks in the alley while the writers were on strike. They need to spend less money on faking the ridiculous computer system and a little more money on someone willing to come up with believable scenarios and decent dialogue.

    1) the killer can't afford to pay his bar tab, but he can afford an automatically aimed gun mount that zones in on a little button.

    2) a gun mounted UNDER a car (8 inches off the ground), aimed at the back of a chair (2.5 feet off the ground), somehow finds a path through the bride's brain (5.5 feet off the ground)

    It's usual to tune into this show and see abysmal acting... "Horatio Crane" obviously comes from the William Shatner school of over dramatizing simple situations by including retarded poses... but this episode was actually painful to watch.

  • The wedding of a high profile professional baseball star turns tragic when his bride is shot and killed during the ceremony. The investigation leads Horatio and his team to an area strip club as well as through some interesting discoveries.moreless

    The return of CSI: Miami after the Writers Guild strike was not the big return that it was hyped to be. While I was hooked on the story to see where and how things turned out, there are a number of flaws which take away from the enjoyment of the episode. Why the killer would spend such a tremendous amount of time and money when it would have been possible to commit the murder out of public view with no witnesses is beyond me. The murder weapon is another flaw. The producers have obviously seen that terrible Bruce Willis movie The Jackal.moreless
  • A very compelling story that I found quite odd...

    Because of the revamped site's new features, Im debating whether I should rate this a 9.0 or a 9.5. The one thing I really hate about the new site - the lack of pie charts for episode and show scores. Anyway, This episode really stands out from previous ones and the funny thing is, I dont know why?? I just had to review it. I mean it was really really good. It had a special spark which is why I found it odd watching it. The 'cliffhanger' though was the most odd thing. They witheld the information about the groom guy for so long and I was a little disappointed at the outcome although intrigued as to the relevance of it to the plot but it turned out it was relevant. What was not really relevant was the strip club woman literally throwing herself at Delko. It was pathetic! However this episode was not...moreless
  • Bride gets killed. On her wedding. Happy people.

    What's wrong with you people?! This was an amazing episode! And I mean it! The episodes before that were reasonable, but above average, but this one.. I loved it! I'm back in love with CSI Miami! YEAH! The intro (i mean not the character-introducing intro, the one BEFORE. How do you call that? Sorry, I'm not english-speaking. don't sue me.) was so great and so emotional. The flashbacks as Horatio walked slowly into the direction where the bride came from were such a masterly example of camera work! Very impressive. The plot was good, however inferior to the emotional aspects and the quality camera work. I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't focus a bit on Horatio (with him losing Marisol) because most of the time I'm SO annoyed that they refer to Horatio's problematic personal life every time a relative of the victim cries out on his shoulder, but this time I expected it. I even wanted it!

    Well, maybe I'm just strange. But my weirdness does not change the fact that THIS was a great fantastic and touching experience (yes I don't say 'episode', it was much more I'm lyrical, seriously)So... WATCH IT!! :Dmoreless
  • A good stand-alone episode, but what the heck with the cliffhanger?!

    I was barely alive from waiting waiting for the ep to load at 3am and here we go... a stand alone. Good story -- a beautiful bride gets killed during her wedding right after she says 'I do', the groom flees with his bodyguard and the CSIs figure out who did it. Sounds good, but pleeease, pleeease, this is not what I was waiting for for about an hour in the middle of the night between 6x13 and 6x14! Meeen, you have no mercy for me.

    Plus for the ep title - 'You May Now Kill The Bride' is tremendous, it has so much dark homor in it.

    Horatio's behavior seemed a bit different this time. I hope it's intended to be so, not because David Caruso got out of practice, haha. Maybe the whole Kyle-thing threw him a little off balance plus the guy asking him if he ever lost a loved person right before his very eyes. I think he froze inside for a second and then did not know how to react. His voice sounded oddly too. Let's assume it's a brilliant acting, haha. I ain't an expert.

    What I did not especially like was the ending -- a cheap tearjerker.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • in this episode, the CSI agent finds a remote control gun mounted underneath the limo and subsequently a target for this gun on the chair which the real murder victim is supposed to be. The shot fired from UNDERNEATH the limo, aimed at the back of a chair, hits the bride in the head. the underside of the limo would have to be above her head level to bring the trajectory of the bullet in line with the target on the back of a chair.

    • in this episode, the CSI agent scratches glass with her diamond, then attempts to scratch the glass with a CZ. CZ has a hardness of 8.5 which is sufficient to scratch glass.

    • Goof: At the end of this episode, Alexx is seen washing Susan's face then removing her jewelry. Right after that we are shown her upper body with the autopsy incision scar on it. Typically, coroners wash the body before doing the autopsy.

    • Goof:
      When Frank and Horatio are first examining the scene, Frank says "poor girl took a bullet before she could say 'I do'", but in the previous scene, she clearly says "I do" before the bullet hits her.
