What hooks me in CSI: Miami is definitely its tropicalesque setting that sets it apart from other CSIs shows, its inventive, smart and curious cases and the graphic production, which is very attractive and well-done.
I also think that Horatio Caine (David Caruso) is the protagonist who gives the show a very distinctive appeal, playing the "super-hero-macho-man" role and, sometimes, overshadowing the other characters. This is another characteristic that makes CSI: Miami unique in comparison to other CSIs shows that don't really have so much focus on just one character. This seems to be so true that the DVD box set cover of this fifth season has only Horatio's close-up and downtown Miami buildings in the background. Can anybody see the rest of the cast? If this is fair, well, that's not up to me.
There's just one thing for sure - CSI: Miami is one of the greatest TV Shows on air today.
There's ALWAYS a fiber or a fingerprint or some DNA left behind and I'm sure a lot of viewers like me are able to spot who the villain is very early on. Every episode it's the same: murder, the crew turns up (the beautiful people), Horatio delivers his cringe worthy one liner, opening credits, Alex says she'll know more at the "post", one of the beautiful people spots something either on the body or at the scene and says they'll "get it to trace", Horatio drops in from time to time with a "Let's do that" or "Find the gun, find the shooter" or "Find the bomb, find the bomber" line, blah blah blah, a bit of flirting between the beautiful people, an inch or so too much cleavage from Boa Vista and/or Cally and hey presto, Frank Tripp man handles the villain down the steps of the CSI building while Horatio stands in the background looking smug. David Caruso's acting duties may be restricted to putting on/taking off his sunglasses, putting his hands on his hips and nearly always looking down in a hunch back pose, but the guy who plays Tripp, all he does is look annoyed.
One final thought.Read more ›
I'm going to make it through the rest of the series, but I'm expecting even less and less of Caruso and just more super-skinny, cosmetically-augmented other characters doing the work, after Caruso get's his signature pun at the beginning of the show then vanishes for most of the rest of the episode...
