CSI: Miami - Darkroom

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 14th 2006 12:17AM

Tripp and Wolfe(S05E08) After last week's episode, I read a decent chunk of comments about how viewers weren't too excited about Boa Vista and all the screen time she's been getting as the newest member of the team. As one commenter put it, "It seems the producers are trying to get us to like the Boa Vista character by making her the center of Season 5."

Well, I don't think most people realized it (unless they read it somewhere beforehand as I did), but this episode was based partly on a true story. Eva LaRue, who plays Natalia, went through a similar ordeal in real life with her sister Nikka. So I think in this case we can cut Boa Vista some slack.

CSI: Miami - High Octane

Boa Vista and Wolfe examine a car.(S05E07) This show is so bad and that's why I love it. It's a full hour of garbage every week and I can't help but watch it. I love that about CSI: Miami.

So imagine my surprise after this episode. It was actually so bad, that it was, well... bad. First episode all season that I didn't like and I've got a whole laundry list of reasons that began with the very first scene. Underground car racing? Really? Haven't we had enough of this Fast and the Furious junk? Sure the first film wasn't that bad, although I liked it better the first time I saw it when it was called Point Break. Second one wasn't necessary, then they went to Tokyo, and now it's invading my beloved CSI: Miami. Damn you Vin Diesel.

CSI: Miami - Curse of the Coffin

Horatio Caine(S05E06) Has CSI: Miami ever had a Halloween themed episode before? I don't think they have. Good for us because they saved all the cheesy stuff for this one. What a great episode. Sort of creepy, completely laughable and it was chock full of hilarious lines. Take that picture to the right? Anyone else remember what Horatio mumbled as he was casually strolling away from the exploding car? "Burn baby, burn." Stuff like that? Another reason to love this show.

CSI: Miami - Death Eminent

Horatio Caine with a gun pointed at him.

(S05E05) This was an interesting episode. It wasn't great... just interesting. The use of eminent domain as the focus for the primary case was an odd choice I thought. Not because it isn't a big issue in Florida. It is. I just thought the way they adapted it to this particular episode was a little self-serving and far-fetched. I mean, the city of Miami snatching up a whole neighborhood near the water to make strip-malls or whatever? Of course, it was all the result of dirty politics. All good reasons for Horatio to cock his head and say something brilliant.

CSI: Miami - If Looks Could Kill

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Oct 10th 2006 11:37AM
CSI: Miami(S05E04) People love to badmouth this show! "It's cheesy!" "It's so campy!" "A corpse could act better than David Caruso!" All of that may be true, but if people are badmouthing CSI: Miami, that means something else too. We're all watching it! That's got to count for something. Well I still think it's good, and despite the slow start to this episode, I think it turned into one of the best Miami eps yet.

CSI: Miami - Death Pool 100

Delko puts his diving expertise to use in CSI: Miami's 100th episode.

(S05E03) 100 episodes... quite the milestone for any show. And how does CSI: Miami celebrate? By having Omar Gooding guest star. If that doesn't say milestone, I don't know what does.

CSI: Miami - Going Under

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Sep 26th 2006 11:23AM

Calleigh takes down one of the bikers.(S05E02) One of the things I always found interesting about CSI: Miami was that out of the three shows in the franchise, Miami is the only one that really played up the specialties of it's cast. You know what I'm talking about. Delko is an expert recovery diver, Calleigh has expertise in firearms and ballistics, and Speedle (great character) had a skill too but I forget what. Not sure what Wolfe does but I think Boa Vista is good with DNA or something like that.

Anyway, my whole point here is that the show is unique because it does that. It's like some sort of super team and it looks like we're finally going to get some backstory this season on where everyone honed their skills. First up? Calleigh.

CSI: Miami - Rio (season premiere)

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Sep 19th 2006 12:06AM

Horatio and Delko in Brazil.

(S05E01) I love this show and I'm thoroughly excited that it's back. I still think it's the best in the CSI franchise and after last year's cliffhanger, this is the one premiere that I've honestly been looking forward to. We pick up right where we left off, with Horatio and Delko in pursuit of Antonio Riaz, the drug kingpin responsible for the death of Horatio's wife (and Delko's sister) Marisol. Riaz has fled the country thanks to the deal he cut with the Feds. Next stop? Brazil.

CSI: Miami - Payback

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 20th 2005 9:38PM

CSI: MiamiJust in time for the unmasking of The Carver on Nip/Tuck, CSI: Miami has expanded on a "who-could-it-be" mystery of their own. If you missed the special online only clip from about a month ago, then you were probably caught off guard when Wolfe told Tripp and Natalia that there's a mole in the lab who's been leaking info to the press. Well there is... and Wolfe got the info from Erica (and even though she's caused him problems in the past, seemed like she wanted to do the right thing by letting him know about the mole in that online clip). However, the mole wasn't to blame for the leak in last night's episode.
