    I enjoyed the episode. A couple of points:

    1-The girls broken neck was really creepy looking.

    2-I thought the rapist/murderer was the guy who ran the Tequila promotion. His company could have been traveling to each of the spring break areas.

    3-Emily Procter is hot. [​IMG]

    Lew,

    I understand what you are saying. But, I don't think the writers were trying to say that the kids on spring break are doing anything wrong. But, sometimes they have to learn their are consequences when things get to far.

    Horatio just rubs me the wrong way. Everything out of his mouth is so smug, like saying broken-neck girl's crime scene was on the beach because there were no drag marks in the sand. My wife and I looked at each other and said, "Uh, she could've been carried."

    Other than that, the episode was okay.

    I hear you Nathan. I usually get so damn mad at Horatio that I never see the endings of the show. Both my wife and I are big fans of the original CSI and I keep trying to watch CSI-Miami, but everytime Horatio drives me away. Too bad because the rest of the cast is really pretty good.

    Lew,

    We can agree on that. I missed those college days. Yet, as a father of two girls. I dread the day they want to go on those trips. [​IMG]

    You guys should read the recaps over at Television Without Pity. The recapper for CSI:Miami is just as tired of Horatio's smug attitude. She also happens to recap the original CSI. The whole site is pretty entertaining, actually.

    I didn't care for the part when they confronted the kids while playing video games in their hotel room. The guy (sorry, I'm new to the show and don't know the names or actors names yet) just kinda blurted out, "Your friend is dead!". The kids reactions were such that you could only conclude they already knew that, because not one of them acted surprised or upset, for that matter.

    I agree (as does my wife) with the posts about Horatio.

    It is not only the actor and the way he presents himself and delivers his lines, but the writing for the part.

    Does this guy have no weaknesses? And where are the non-crime scene cops. In CSI, the crime scene guys don’t run everything. Why does Horatio have to be both the top dog and the font of all knowledge in this show?

    I’m rapidly starting not to care.

    Am I the only one who likes Horatio? He's no more a smug know-it-all than Grissom is over on the original show.

    I don't think Grissom is smug. He certainly has suspicions about things, but he asks questions, and we have seen him stumped on problems before. (in other words: just like a real [believable] person)

    I think Miami CSIs have broader cop-like duties/responsibilities (more like jack-of-all-trades), unlike their Las Vegas counterparts. That was one of the "difference" selling point for CSI: Miami. Why would Speed and Horatio be riding along for a transfer of drug evidence (in that episode where there was a shootout and Speed was shot) unless they are "truer" cops than the Las Vegas CSIs.

    This was highlighted in the first glimpse of CSI: Miami last season on CSI (where Gil and Katherine had to fly to Miami for their investigation, and we were introduced to Horatio and company).

    Patrick: I don't think the CSIs from either city can detain or question anybody without an officer present. I know they're armed, but those are assumed to be defensive weapons, rather than offensive. I've never seen anything that leads me to believe that the Miami crew has broader police powers than Vegas.

    As for the shootout, they could have been traveling with the evidence to preserve the "chain of custody," i.e. the evidence transferred from the crime lab must be accompanied by one or more people employed by the crime lab. Also, they traveled with a police escort (a cop was one of the fatalities), not by themselves.

    I'm just going by how CSI presented CSI: Miami in the spin-off episode last season. At this point, it doesn't bother me when Horatio gets all policed up when he goes after his suspects in the interview room.
