Scoop: 'CSI Miami' flashes back to '97

Csi-miami_l Someone get David Caruso some reverse aging cream, STAT. Sources confirm that CSI: Miami is planning to kick off its eighth season with a circa ’97 origin episode that will show the early days of the team. It’s my understanding that the episode will be told from the point of view of a comatose Delko (Adam Rodriguez), who flashes back to his first murder case with the Miami-Dade PD. Delko, of course, was critically wounded in the season finale.

Thoughts?!

    Sounds very interesting.
    All I’ve got to say though: Rory Cochrane better be there as Speedle!

    I’m a CSI:Miami fan, and while I know people think DC is over the top and ridiculous, I STILL LOVE this show! I’m not sure how they casting/makeup dept will “youth” the characters, but I can’t wait! Thanks Aus!!!

  • lalez

    does that mean speedle is coming back?
    just a thought

  • MWC

    Maybe Caruso will sport some Pop-era Bono sunglasses.

    If it means bringing back Speed (Rory Cochrane) then I’m watching! If not… then its back to ignoring this train wreck. It is the only one of the CSI franchise I can’t stand: too much of a Horatio/Caruso ego trip.

      You gotta remember that each of these shows has their protagonist. CSI’s protagonist is Gil Grissom. CSI: Miami’s protagonist is Horatio Cain. NCIS’s protagonist is Leroy Jethro Gibbs. CSI: NYC’s protagonist is Mac Taylor. NCIS: Los Angeles’ protagonist is Henrietta Lange.

    so – does this mean Lt. Megan Donner (Kim Delaney) will be back – she was the leader of the team back then, wasnt she?

    • Mike

      I think Megan Donnor left CSI so the chief made Horatio Cain the lead CSI. Eric Delko was mad at Megan for thinking she could just take back the lab and Timothy Speedle put him in his place for it.

    Will Khandi Alexander be back?

    No way Delko dies. The guy is a f’n Termintor. He took a Sniper rifle shot to the skull and is still walking around fighting crime.

    I think this is an interesting idea for this show to do a sort of start over and as Caruso described in filming of the finale, that this coming season would a “restart” of sorts. However, enough with Delko being injured and in Coma’s!!! Seriously, I am getting a little tired of them constantly beating up on him physically. I don’t think he will die b/c many sources have said he will be back…I just hope they don’t use this event to change his character yet again!!!…no amnesia please!! That scenario is getting old…on just about EVERY show!

    I used to like this show back when it began and Caruso could act. It’ll be interesting to see how they flash back a decade. Will they have some of the many missing cast members return or will they find some bizarre way to work around them? Will Caruso act or chew scenery? Will everything be BRIGHT ORANGE and LOUD or more normal the way it was when the show began? Should be interesting.

    The best comedy on tv continues to get funnier. Is it me or was Speed a monotone character with no emotion. Caruso at least has one emotion the soft speaking voice and the constant infatuation with his sunglasses and himself.

      I saw a backdoor pilot clip where Timothy Speedle told a joke to Horatio Cain. It’s probable that something traumtic happened in his life shortly before the series started. We so easily forget the happy guy we saw his as in the backdoor pilot because we were so used to seeing him as the sarcastic-humored, short-tempered, moody man we saw him as in the series. He may’ve lost his wife whom he loved more than life itself. He hadn’t been in a church since Kurt Cobain died.

    “This look like…(pauses to take sunglasses dramatically on/off)..a chronic-historises”!
