CSI: MIAMI “ON THE HOOK” Review

So… does it appear to anyone else that Horatio may finally have snapped and possibly thrown out a slew of different ethic codes and whatnot? I understand that H has always been more, shall we say, passionate about his job than the rest of the CSI team, but this week? I think Horatio has pushed limits a little too far. This week on CSI: MIAMI the team is attempting to protect a fisherman who was very nearly killed by a sniper while out on his boat. I (like always) thought that I had the entire episode figured out within the first 15 minutes, but turns out that I was WAY off. I was convinced it was Webb’s business partner, and was legitimately surprised when the case didn’t circle back around to him as the killer. It would’ve been a good story line, the way the episode played out in my head. Instead of business being the motive, our killer was after something much more universal – money. One of Webb’s clients was attempting to off the bookie, and was using some pretty sketchy means of doing so. To Read More Click Here.

CSI: MIAMI “Reality Kills” Review

In this week’s episode of CSI: MIAMI Horatio and team are called to a crime scene where a reality TV Star has been killed. The show being filmed seemed to be something ripped directly from Jersey Shore, which um… should never be mixed with CSI: Miami. That being said, my overall opinion of "Reality Kills" was positive. There wasn’t a lot of over the top computer workings, no completely unbelievable science experiments in the lab – instead the team was just left with their instincts and training to solve the case. I appreciate that. While the bells and whistles of the lab (and sometimes even the back of the team’s crime scene van) are fun to watch sometimes, it tends to take away from the actual point of the show – that these characters are trained professionals that CAN do their job well without relying solely on a computer.

CSI: MIAMI “Manhunt” Review

Horatio and Eric have a particular grudge against the episode’s main target- Memmo Fierro (Robert LaSardo)– this prisoner was the cause of Marisol’s (Eric’s sister and Horatio’s wife) death. I really enjoy how the last two episodes of CSI: Miami have tied back into earlier seasons. As a fan it is always fun to revisit old characters and have those grudges that have festered play out. Like last week, "Manhunt" had me hooked from the moment the episode began. The story was quick, it kept me engaged, and didn’t waste time with random cut scenes like some episodes of the series tend to do. The flashback sequences that we WERE shown were just enough to give us, as an audience, the memory jog we needed to know exactly where we knew certain characters from. Not to mention it made me feel REALLY horrible for Horatio all over again. To Read More Click Here.

CSI: MIAMI ''See No Evil'' Review Season 9, Episode 3

This week's CSI: MIAMI actually managed to keep my interested through the entire episode of  See No Evil . It was interesting, engaging, and didn't have any unnecessary filler content that we've seen in the last episodes of season 9. See No Evil  begins like any other episode of CSI: Miami, the sunny beaches, tourists walking around without a care, and then it segued into the most disgusting public bathroom I have EVER seen. That was pretty much the scariest part of the episode - never mind the vest made of explosives, did you SEE the floor in that bathroom? It was something straight out of a horror movie; and looked it was BEGGING for someone to carry out a kidnapping. To Read More  Click Here .

CSI: MIAMI ''Sudden Death'' Review Season 9, Episode 2

The technology used on CSI: MIAMI is something that will never cease to amaze me. While I grasp the concept of  it's a TV show , Miami seems to have a LOT of space age technology at their disposal! It's a crime thriller, not sci-fi. In  Sudden Death , we're shown a projection computer that can magically read lost text messages (I may have missed a vital piece of information with this. Could Boa Vista just not access the text menu of the phone? Explanation please!), a C4 test of grapes to discover the year of the champagne that killed their victim, it all seemed a little over the top. But I digress. To Read More  Click Here .

CSI: MIAMI Season 9 Premiere ''Fallen'' Review

CSI: MIAMI  Fallen  Season 9 Episode 1 - In season 8 of CSI: MIAMI we were left with a cliff hanger. The lab was poisoned and we had no idea who was going to survive. Season 9 premiered on CBS with the episode  Fallen  and opened with everyone in the lab literally... fallen. Everyone was down for the count and just when it looked like Eric (Adam Rodriguez) had breathed his last breath, enter Horatio (David Caruso). Horatio shoots out a window, and much needed oxygen flows back into the lab and everyone is alive and kicking. Everyone except Jesse Cardoza (Eddie Cibrian). As viewers, we knew that someone was taken from the unit, and for a brief second it looked like a toss up between Jesse and Calleigh (Emily Procter), but our favorite blond ballistics specialist is still going strong. For me, watching Natalia (Eva LaRue) attempt to revive Jesse was heart breaking. I love the way that the characters in this series really seem to CARE about one another, and treat each other like family. We've seen this relationship between team members since the beginning of the series, and I more so think that this is the overall theme to the show. You know with a lot of high tech crime scene solving thrown in for good measure. To Read More  Click Here .

I've been an avid watcher of all three series, and each one of them has a special place in my heart. Here's my breakdown of winners of each category explaining why: 1. Head of the department: Gil Grissom (Las Vegas - former) As much as I love Mac Taylor (NY) for his zeal and loyalty and Horatio Caine (Miami) for his funny one-liners every time the show cuts to commercial, Grissom is what started all the CSI madness for me. I loved him from the start, which is really saying a lot because I hate bugs. 2. Field Team: New York team They seem like the most cohesive bunch and their pasts and personalities don't seem as clashing. They are also the only team that I didn't start to immediately dislike when I started hearing about their pasts. Normally, you like people better the more you get to know them. Miami did not work for me. Las Vegas the reaction wasn't as immediate, but their personal problems seemed too extreme for me. 3. Scientists: Las Vegas team They're focused on a lot, and they all have their unique personalities. This makes them the automatic favorite, because everyone gets to know them. New York doesn't really qualify -- their scientific team *is* their field team basically. Miami's scientists bugged me a bit, but they also didn't get the same amount of screen time as the Las Vegas team did. 4. Law enforcement officer: Donald Flack (NY) I could say it's because he's the hottest one, but I also feel like he's got the most open mind and is the most relatable. His loyalty and friendship to the team makes me like him the best. Jim Brass (Las Vegas) isn't too bad. He's got a daughter with a shady a past, but he's reliable. He only barely loses out. Frank Tripp (Miami) is way too racist (see him making all those petty remarks whenever there are cases involving immigrants) for me to like him on a normal basis. 5. Coroner: Dr. Alexx Woods (Miami - former) I love her. She's always so sweet to everyone and is always there for everyone, especially emotionally. I think this was one of the tougher categories to judge for me, but she's definitely my favorite. Just to complete the set: Dr. Al Robbins is cool and rather amusing with strange little historical anecdotes. Sid Hammerback is quirky and friendly with weirder anecdotes than normal. 6. The City: New York I've always loved New York. Seeing all the scenes displayed on the show, even if they're crime scenes, is still always exciting. Las Vegas at night is beautiful but the harsh deserts surrounding it makes me a little wary. Miami seems to be displayed way too beautiful. I've never been there (I apologize if I'm wrong), but I feel that it's a little too surreal. 7. Inter-departmental romance: Danny Messer and Lindsay Monroe (NY) They're seriously the cutest couple, mostly because you get to see the full development of it from the beginning of Lindsay coming in on to the culmination into marriage. 8. Guest stars: Miami Wow. Zac Efron, Jeremy Sumpter, Chris Pine, Amber Tamblyn... The list goes on and on. I'm not saying that the other series don't have impressive lists, but Miami's makes my eyes pop. So, in all, I like CSI: NY the best. It's also the one I've kept up with the best as well, so I may be a little biased. Who are your favorites?

CSI MIami Season 8 Episode 24 "They All Fall Down" Preview

Well it looks like tonight we get to see the long awaited season finale of CSI Miami. I have to say that this season was one of my favorite CSI Miami seasons thus far. And on the season finale who knows what will happen. There is a sneak peek promo video for tonight's episode at: . A serial killer taunts the CSIs by leaving them cryptic hints, and the longer it takes them to decode these puzzles, the higher the death toll rises. So I doubt this episode will be one that you will want to miss.
