Goofs

In the slow motion shots of the Cuban being hurled through the air by the landmine explosion (in the teaser), the victim's feet are perfectly in order. In later shots, they are torn off at the ankles, while exposition in the post-mortem sequence tells us the COD is supposed to have been one his feet bones driven into his lungs by the explosive force.

What A Way To Start The Day!
8 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode had a great beginning with extremely stylish camera-work and incredible colors. We see a Cuban refugee make it on shore from his little boat and then blown up on the beach when he steps on a mine. While investigating, "Frank Tripp" steps on a mine but everyone hears the click noise in time so Frank has to stand very still for awhile the bomb squad fixes things.

"What a way to start the day," he says, afterward, which draws a smile from Horatio. "Yeah, and it's not even 8 o'clock yet."

After a sweep of the place, three more mines are discovered and blown up. Ryan and Natalia are on the scene to see what they can discover from the fragments and the beach area, in general. They find something off a pair of binoculars

Alex finds something interesting while examining how the refugee died. In the man's stomach was caviar, lobster and other goodies: hardly food for a guy on a little boat. And, his clothes are a little bit too nice and clean for a man who supposedly sailed from Cuba for days. What's the deal with this guy?

We wind up with baseball players, and a longtime criminal, a hit man from Cuba, a possible new hit man, Eric Delko being sued for $250,000 for assault after Eric stops him from beating his wife in a bar, then that dirtbag husband being killed.....one thing after another: a wild episode.

One thing that was really lame, and I've seen it on the CSI shows many times: people confessing to murder after the first accusation! There is never a lawyer around but some CSI person - here it's Calleigh, accuses a guy and he freely admits it. Then minutes later, it happens again with another guy! I'm sorry, but people don't put themselves in jail for the rest of their lives that easily!

The most interesting small story, among the many that are in this episode, is the one with Delko. Man, all I will say you will hate this woman that he defended in the first place!
