This past week I stayed away from all the spoilers I came across so that I could give you my honest reaction to however Delkos situation played out not an easy task for me, as I pretty much live for spoilers. What is my honest reaction, you ask? What the frak?! Frakity frak frak. Not to sound callous or anything here, but wouldnt it have just been kinder to kill this guy off? Yes, we have a very much alive Delko, but one who also has significant memory loss (the go-to plot device for dramas this season). And here I was preparing another one of my snappy obituaries. Im sorry that Delko cant remember his sister is dead, but perhaps someone could kindly point out that her spitting image is working as an ADA up in Manhattan. It might help ease the pain. Its too early to know how this is going to play out over the rest of the season, or even the rest of the series. And in the near future, I may be talking about what a brilliant move this was on behal...read more
Please look at the title of this entry. If you are a police officer and youve been shot, you are never, ever, ever, ever to say this. Ever. Even though Delko's getting shot was the worst kept secret on tvguide.com, I certainly wasnt expecting it to be anything like it was. Dare I say, CSI: Miami is giving us suspense again? When he got shot in the leg, I figured that was it. And then he just had to go and say, Im gonna be fine. Horatio didnt even have any sunglasses to fiddle with.

I like the character, though. Hes very over-the-top and so obviously evil that he almost makes up for the l...read more
Every once in a while, David Caruso will come upon an early episode of CSI: Miami on A&E and just shake his head. "We're all so much younger, our voices are higher, there's not a line on anybody's face," he says. "Now you see us and we're these world-weary warriors carrying the weight of all these crimes." Five seasons in, the Miami unit "has been through hell and has the baggage to prove it," he says.
But there's an upside, at least for fans. All those battle scars lead to a level of emotional depth the show didn't have a few seasons back. And in tonight's episode (10 pm/ET, on CBS), it's clearer than ever that those emotions are right on the surface.
In the first half of a two-parter, the lives of two CSIs are on the line when Horatio (Caruso) goes head-to-head with Clavo Cruz (read more
