CSI: Miami

Rory Cochrane coming back to CSI: Miami

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 24th 2007 2:23PM

Rory CochraneI know, I know, you're thinking, "but Rory Cochrane was killed off the show!" Hey, this is television. Anything can happen.

Of course, it would help if CSI: Miami was a science fiction show. They could explain why Detective Speedle could come back from the dead by...oh, I don't know, some rejuvenation serum or time travel or robot double. But this is CSI: Miami, and it has to be realistic (even though we have David Caruso wearing suits in the humid Florida sun and never sweating). Cochrane asked to be written out of the show because he didn't want to do a weekly show. His contract said he couldn't work again in TV til 2008.

To answer your next question, no, it won't be a flashback. And Cochrane will be playing Speedle, not a twin brother. How they'll do this is anybody's guess. After the jump, anybody's guess!

CBS' Tassler on Jericho, Minds' Patinkin and CSI's Dourdan - TCA report

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 18th 2007 7:42PM

Mandy Patinkin, Gary Jourdan, Skeet UlrichCSI: Miami's Horatio Cane is getting a son, those kids on How I Met Your Mother are getting a Mom and Jericho fans are getting seven more episodes -- for now.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler offered up some news and story tidbits and fielded inquiries from the press about the off-screen lives of Eye network stars as Wednesday morning's press session got underway.

First up: the story tidbits and other show-related news. "Viewers will get hints about the identity of the mother in How I Met Your Mother," Tassler revealed. (Me, I've always guessed it's Alyson Hannigan -- but I'm not sure I want to see Hannigan's Lily and Jason Segel's Marshall not live happily ever after.)

CBS goes green with Emmy campaign

by Anna Johns, posted May 26th 2007 11:39AM
cbs; green; emmyEach year, television production studios send out oodles (that's the word I use when I don't have an exact figure) of DVDs to voters for Emmy awards. This year, CBS Paramount Television went green with its Emmy campaign. It's all explained on this website, but CBS has essentially decided to save the planet by not creating a bunch of DVDs that will just go in the trash and has, instead, directed voters to watch episodes online.

That means we can watch 'em, too.

Go here to check out which episodes of CBS Paramount (different from the CBS network) were submitted for Emmy consideration. The online video quality looks and sounds great. Among the contenders are a CSI episode with Liev Schreiber, Criminal Minds with James van der Beek, and an episode of Jericho, which the CBS network recently canceled.

by Brett Love, posted May 16th 2007 10:48AM

CSI: Miami - Born to Kill (season finale)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 15th 2007 1:01AM

Emily Procter and Johnny Whitworth

(S05E24) This was a bit of a departure in terms of what we've come to expect from a season finale in the world of CSI, be it Vegas, New York, or Miami. I'm not complaining though. This episode felt much more like a wrap up of the fifth season of CSI: Miami and rather than leave us hanging with a ton of questions (there were a few), it left me feeling far more satisfied than I expected. Especially since we can look forward to plenty of new developments in the fall. I actually felt much better that one spoiler which had been floating around, never came to fruition. It appears that the whole mess with Horatio being in a plane crash may have just been an exaggeration of the van crash that did occur in the episode. For once, I was glad we didn't get a grand, nail-biting finale.

CSI: Miami: Kill Switch

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 7th 2007 11:59PM

Jonathan Togo as Ryan Wolfe on CSI: Miami.(S05E23) "I wear make-up now." -Wolfe

Great episode! Solid case, plenty of tense moments, and what turned out to be a really good (slightly cheesy) performance from Jonathan Togo.

The big question on everyone's mind? Wolfe ain't going anywhere. Looks like we're only getting one episode revolving around his brief flirtation with being a TV news "special correspondent," and one was more than enough. It was thoroughly enjoyable but man, was it weird to see him doing something so different or what? It definitely felt like he was selling out his former colleagues by busting out some of the tricks of the trade on live TV, but at least he came to his senses by the end of the hour.

CSI: Mistake - Getting rid of Wolfe smart?

by Jonathan Toomey, posted May 6th 2007 4:44PM
WolfeWell the weekend is here and since I never had a chance to see this past Monday's installment of CSI: Miami (S05E22, "Burned"), I figured I'd sit down and watch the crappy feed on the CBS website. For whatever reason, my TiVo tweaked out last week and never recorded the show. So to those who were expecting my weekly post, I apologize. That being said, it seems foolish to write up a normal review this late in the game especially since there's really only one thing that people are talking about: the firing of Ryan Wolfe.

CSI: Miami: Just Murdered

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 24th 2007 11:03AM

Calleigh and Delko

(S05E21) I really enjoyed this episode a lot, but I have to ask. Why did the preview from last week's episode make it seem like some real serious fireworks were going to go off between Calleigh and Delko? I recall something along the lines of, "the moment we've all waited for." What moment? She gave him a peck on the cheek to say thanks! That was it! Realistically, this will lead to something further in the coming final episodes (Delko seemed a bit smitten), but why blow the exciting preview on this instance? It wasn't a big deal at all. The rest of the episode was quite good though. Solid case as well as some shady stuff happening in the crime lab.

CSI: Miami: Rush

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 17th 2007 8:03AM

Wolfe(S05E20) This was kind of an interesting episode if you think about it. It was a good concept. Essentially, they took something that was glitzy and over-the-top to begin with and layered it with a storyline about Hollywood, drugs, rehab, and murder. Doesn't get much better than that. Throw in some nods to actual celebrities (similar to Dirt) and we got one of the better CSI: Miami episodes this season.

However, since I love this show, I still have to gripe because there were plenty of things that could have been a little better.

CSI: Miami: Bloodline

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 10th 2007 12:44PM

Ed Begley Jr.(S05E19) Something about this show... I just can't get enough of it. Despite the tirade of complaints every episode tends to generate week in and week out, there's one thing you can't argue. It's always good. Of course, degrees of "what's good" can vary when you address a show like this. So I suppose I'm just making the same argument I always make. Enjoy CSI: Miami for what it is. Over the top television at it's finest.

Continuing with that trend, the show has gone ahead and developed Scott O'Shay (played to the sleaziest by Ed Begley Jr.) into Horatio's latest nemesis. H's feud with Stetler has long since been forgotten and Riaz is dead, so it's time for someone else to get in the way. Supervisor O'Shay is it.

CSI: Miami: Triple Threat

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Mar 20th 2007 3:34PM

Wolfe checks out a pile of dirt.(S05E18) Sorry for the lateness folks, but I'm sick. I've been running a fever as hot as CSI: Miami! OH! That's right, I went there. But seriously, I finally got around to watching this episode and I have to say... it was borderline ridiculous and I loved every second of it.

I cannot recall an episode of CSI: Miami that ever had as many ridiculous twists and turns as this one. It's funny too, because I had been watching a whole bunch of episodes of The Shield recently and I went in to this thinking that I probably wouldn't enjoy it as much as I usually do. Wrong. Pour on the cheese!

CSI: Miami: A Grizzly Murder

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 27th 2007 12:40PM

Jonathan Togo as Ryan Wolfe on CSI: Miami.(S05E17) Alright, I'm not trying to say that it's inaccurate, but did anyone else have a hard time buying into the whole "hunting for grizzlies in the Everglades" thing? Everyone else should be raising their hand right now because it felt ridiculous in the sense that we weren't even in Miami anymore. I love it though. What won't this show do?

Here's what did bug me about it though. The story was essentially a rip-off of the dark comedy Very Bad Things. Buddies get together, prostitute dies, and then they all turn on each other. That's the movie in a nutshell and that was essentially the gist of the whole episode as well. Except for the grizzly bear. I did mention the grizzly bear, right? The one in Miami?

TV's Top 5!: Jim Carrey does David Caruso

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Feb 20th 2007 12:42PM

Jim Carrey does a mean David CarusoJim Carrey has been doing the talk show circuits to promote his new movie The Number 23. I'm always waiting for him to mention Lost's Easter eggs, but it seems that he sure loves himself some David Caruso and CSI.

In his visit to The Late Show With David Letterman, Carrey's exuberant comedic personality came out to play and he paid homage to David Caruso by doing his own impressions of the CSI actor.

If you're Jim Carrey, all you need is a good pair of sunglasses and a line from your favorite cartoon!

And in other Top 5 news, if you're looking for someone to say that they have never seen Paula Abdul drink...

CSI: Miami: Broken Home

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 20th 2007 10:44AM

Khandi Alexander as Alexx Woods on CSI: Miami.(S05E16) Well this was a refreshing episode. Normally when CSI: Miami has an episode with two or more cases going on at once, it often feels forced. Not so this time around. It was a genuinely well laid out story with some great twists. To be perfectly honest, I don't think it even felt like an episode of CSI: Miami. It lacked its trademark cheesiness and the case was on the level of something I would expect to see on the Vegas original.

That's not a bad thing though. I'd love to continue seeing more episodes on this level. Then maybe everyone (myself included) would stop ragging on the show for its campy soap opera-ish feel.

CSI: Miami: Man Down

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 13th 2007 10:14AM
Delko(S05E15) Well that was unexpected. Normally, if I read something along the lines of, "a team member dies after being shot in the head" in my TV Guide, then I expect... well, a death. Technically, the episode description wasn't lying. Delko was dead for a few minutes. That is, until one of the doctors slammed a syringe of epinephrine into his chest. So I suppose the more accurate episode description should have read, "a team member dies after being shot in the head... and then he comes back to life." So either Delko is some sort of Dracula hybrid or the doctors at Miami General are just good at what they do. I'm going with the vampire angle. CSI: Transylvania would be freakin' sweet.
