Another spring break, no less then three student corpses in or near Miami hotels. Brad Donner fell from the hotel roof; Paul Arnett was buried in the sand; Alexis Wilkes was dropped in the hotel laundry processing chute, but first had her skull smashed. Working from different crime scenes, the team puzzles it all together as the victims -hard to identify- turn out to be friends from a single college. And former 'partners in crime' relating to an Internet posting. Written by KGF Vissers

The most boring Spring Break!
10 January 2011 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Ah, the joy of the spring break! This episode is the most boring one I've ever seen, it's just bored and nothing new in it! Let us recall: 11 seasons of "CSI," 9 seasons of "CSI NY," 7 seasons of "CSI: Miami," this is really the most boring spring break! Talk about spring break and many episodes have been shown, so many murders occurred, murderers, and in this episode we got three bodies, at last for the CSI Team eventually found related the three of them. Three people died, for what? Because of the fat girl were humiliated, she lost weight, maybe had some cosmetic surgeries, changed name and moved for one's only: revenge!

Hmmm...let us recall that in: "CSI: NY" S4:E19, "Personal Foul", removed the time: spring break, and the scenes with beach front hotel, isn't the plot very familiar? BINGO! Moreover, the set of New York, the creativity and ingenuity of murder, the detection of story line, and way the story had been told, all were far more better than Miami: this spring break episode. The fat girl got revenge in NY is much more interesting, ingenuity than the fat girl in Miami!

Seekingrevenge for the three original "partners in crime/victims" while they were getting mellow with drink, the girl came forward to them and showed her true face, then sent them to the death, to get even. A young women as a cheerleader, under the thousands of watching eyes of the court, who kissed the "lucky guy" and then the audiences saw that the poison "lucky guy" he fell dead. Which one is more innovative and attractive? Which path of puzzle solving is more interesting and fascinating? Which key to a puzzle was revealed that would make people think: OH! That is CSI! The original CSI style!

And the problem, needless to say, "three bodies in a day" and the team amazingly broke the whole case just in the same very day: finding facts, analyzing evidences/DNA/sources, searching warrants...etc., it is meant to fool the audiences again, saying that CSI team is a group of supermen/superwomen, it only take one day and they can immediately solve the cases? YAWN...it's a really boring spring break in Miami! Hah!
