Storyline

Brian Partney (18), son of Canadian tourists Roger and Denise, is murdered by a shot in the face in the luxury hotel elevator while the family was leaving to catch their flight home. The bullet is missing, a black Cobra Familia gang shirt was left behind, with the key-card of Mitch Pena's room, facing the elevator. Father Partney has no idea why Brian took that elevator, nor how he or the kid's adoring younger brother Shane could have anything to do with a gang. New Yorkers Mitch Pena and his younger girl-friend Amy Hobbs claim they were on the beach, but earlier Amy had given the cutie her key; when the boy came over for frisky fun, Mitch barged in and just threw startled Brian out. The permanent web-cam in the elevator recorded only the killer's arm reaching near surprised Brian's head just before the shot, the green-lined sleeve is of a bloody uniform found in hotel laundry: that of bellman Luis Mendoza, on duty and living in Cobra territory, who has a day-job in construction and ...

An Unbelievable (literally) family
30 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Canadian family vacationing in Miami has one of its members shot to death in an elevator just prior to leaving their hotel. Who did it, and why? At first glance, it looks like a solid, loving family but.....the story turns out to be ludicrous of this family portrayal. Trust me: nobody would act and talk like these people. It made for the first dumb episode of the season. Well, I'm not complaining because the preceding seven episodes have all been entertaining and not stupid, like this one.

The victim's father is the first ridiculous family character shown. The victim was one of his two teenage boys. Almost every sentence the father said was outrageous, something nobody would say,along with his actions and inflections. It was just really annoying. The odd thing is, the man disappears the second half of the show. We never see him again.

Unforuntately, the remaining brother and mother remain. The brother winds up almost killing a suspect, seriously injuring him by sneaking him and clubbing him numerous times with a blunt instrument. When interrogated by CSI later, the boy wonders why he would be in trouble for doing so? "The guy didn't die, so what's the problem?" he asks.

You see what I mean? All of this gets really out of hand in the final few minutes, so much so I'm not even going to give it credence by mentioning it. Oh well, no show is perfect and every once in awhile we get a clunker.
