Product Description

Amazon.ca

As Lt. Horatio Caine (David Caruso) notes in episode 4 ("Just One Kiss"), "The evidence, as always, will speak for itself." In other words, CSI: Miami follows the same super-successful formula as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Fortunately, this instantly popular spin-off established its own unique identity from the start. Like CSI, the Dade County criminalists of CSI: Miami solve murders using forensic science. Unlike the Vegas crew, however, they're cops with the power to arrest, their coroner (Alexx Woods) talks to dead people, and almost everybody speaks Spanish. Sometimes their crime scene is a swamp, sometimes a resort hotel. Either way, the skies are always sunny--the gators always biting. Real-life Florida resident Caruso is joined by Khandi Alexander (NewsRadio) as Woods, Emily Procter (The West Wing) as ballistics expert Calleigh Duquesne, Adam Rodriguez (Roswell) as underwater recovery expert Eric Delko, and featured player Rory Cochrane as Tim "Speed" Speedle. Cochrane (Dazed and Confused) wouldn't become a full-fledged cast member until the 12th episode ("Entrance Wound"). Meanwhile, Kim Delaney (Caruso's former NYPD Blue cast mate) wouldn't join until the first ("Golden Parachute"), but left after the 10th ("A Horrible Mind"), reportedly due to a lack of chemistry with Caruso.

Just as CSI has made the most of its location with stories about showgirls and casino owners, so has CSI: Miami exploited its surroundings for all they're worth. Pilot episode "Cross-Jurisdictions" (a crossover with CSI), for instance, was loosely based on the murder of Miami-based designer Gianni Versace. Other notable episodes include "Camp Fear" with Joan of Arcadia's Amber Tamblyn as a detention camp cadet and "Dead Woman Walking" with Karen Sillas (Under Suspicion) as a victim of radiation poisoning. Like its parent program, CSI: Miami quickly became a ratings powerhouse and was followed by CSI: New York in 2004. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars I was the number one skeptic about this series June 30 2004
By Meg
Format:DVD
Being a CSI las Vegas fan, I wasn't happy when they made CSI Miami. I picked this up due to the summer break of CSI, I needed something.. and this was my choice! I can honestly say that it was a worthwhile purchase after having watched all of the episodes. True David Caruso is no Gil Grissom, but would you want him to be? The feel of the series is very different with the set being in Miami. The cast is on par with the Las vegas cast. Las Vegas has a more personal feel to it, as many times the originals bring their personal lives into the story (i.e. Catherine being a stripper, Warrick being a Gambler), and you don't find that as much in Miami. The focus seems to stay more to the storyline.
Kim Delaney was a welcome cast-off in my opinion. She dragged the series down with her poor attitude, and had no chemistry with David Caruso. She came across as an uptight investigator who had no interest in getting along with her fellow CSIs, or have any passion in getting the truth. I was very glad when she finally left.
Another difference between Las Vegas and Miami that is striking is how each CSI is an expert in their certain field. Callegh is the "Bullet Girl", Speedle is the AV expert, Delco is the Diving tech who speaks russian, and spanish, acts as the go between the Cuban community and the MDPD. Alexx talks to her patients as they were still alive, and in general is friendlier then Al Robbins of Las Vegas.
In conclusion, try it, the two CSIs are comparable, like the many Law and Order spinoffs, you can choose your favorite, but in my opinion each one is strong, and holds its own. You can enjoy either, but take a vacation from Las Vegas to Miami.

4.0 out of 5 stars CSI Miami - getting better and better June 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Most first seasons struggle. The original CSI had problems but sorted them out quickly and became a massive hit.
The First season of CSI Miami starts with more confidence that its Vegas sibling and gets better and better, with the only major fault being too much focus on Caruso's character (but as his protrayal of the empathic Horatio Caine is such a pleasure to watch this is understandable).
CSI Miami is a spin-off, one of those things that fans can either love or hate and will always compare to the original. People who unfavourably compare the fully fleshed out Vegas people to the fledgling Miami cast should remember that it took us a while to get used to Sarah, Warwick and the rest of the crew so we should give Speed, Calleigh and Co. some time to grow on us (and they come on in leaps and bounds in season two). As for Caine vs Grissom - I can enjoy watching either.
The fact that some of the stories stray from bread and butter CSI work to other points of view make CSI Miami more distinct from the Vegas series and, in my opinion, more watchable.
A good show, getting better and better

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Like the Original June 14 2004
Format:DVD
"CSI: Miami" is a good show with a lot of problems that could and should be easily solved.
First of all, the characters are never really as defined as the ones on "CSI."
Secondly, the show occasionally veers away from the mystery/whodunnit format of "CSI" and becomes a cop show with a dab of science thrown in.
Another standard, un-"CSI"-like plot line has Horatio Caine disliking a suspect and spending the rest of the show finding evidence to convict him/her. When there's a twist and a 2nd suspect emerges that Caine doesn't like, I find myself not liking Caine.
A third problem is David Caruso and his character. Horatio Caine is someone trying to be cool but isn't. His brooding is excessive, and his constant staring off into space is predictable.
Then there's David Caruso's inability to find a place for his hands. He's constantly putting them on his hips or putting on/taking off his sunglasses. After about 5 episodes, this gets alternately annoying and hilarious.
Another aspect of Horatio Caine is his repetitious dialogue. There are shows where his lines are exactly the same as in last week's show. For example, he's constantly saying, "OK, this is what we're going to do."
As for the episodes on these disks, there are additional problems.
Beautiful Emily Procter is a little too made up.
The shows on these disks include the episodes with Kim Delaney, who didn't fit in and was totally unconvincing as a crime scene investigator. The show improved immensely when she left.
I don't mind these problems when "CSI: Miami" can present you with a good plot twist, poignant story, or last-minute piece of esoteric evidence. But when it fails to deliver, which, during the 1st season, was about every 3rd or 4th episode, the problems become obvious, and the show becomes uninteresting and campy.
