Product Description

Join lead criminalist Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and his state-of-the-art forensics team as they investigate hot and steamy Miami crimes using cold hard facts. The CSI: Miami Season 5 Complete DVD Collection features 24 episodes of riveting and shocking mysteries. The evidence leads into seedy nightclubs, privileged suburbs and explosive family secrets. The stakes are higher than ever before, because this time it’s personal.

The fifth season of CSI: Miami begins with revenge: Lead CSI Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and underwater recovery whiz Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) travel to Brazil to avenge the murder of Horatio's wife Marisol (who was Eric's sister). While there, Horatio also helps his sister-in-law and nephew after his brother is murdered by drug lords. (Never mind that the crime-fighting duo seem to have carte blanche to do as they like in a foreign country.) The scenes are beautifully shot and the rhythm of the first few episodes are reminiscent of classic Miami Vice. The most stylistic--and hammy--show in the CSI franchise, CSI: Miami is driven by Caruso's quiet delivery. Never one to get overly excited, Horatio rarely exhibits more than a shy smile or a whispery threat. In this season, two CSIs--Ryan Wolfe (Jonathan Togo) and Natalia Boa Vista (Eva La Rue) face professional and personal problems that could threaten their jobs, while Horatio himself battles a recurring nemesis who always seems to be one step ahead of him. The crimes range from an apparent death by grizzly bear to what looks like an off-shore betting pool dealing with celebrity deaths. After solving the latter case, ballistics expert Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter) observes that "Somebody will always think it's easy to make [money]." Taking his classic hands on hips stance, Horatio says, "But we know different, don't we?" Considered smarmy by some, and dreamy by others, Caruso is a love-him-or-hate-him kind of actor. While he doesn't have the depth of William Petersen (star of the original CSI), his preening works in the context of the glitzier CSI: Miami. All 24 episodes, which originally ran during 2006-2007, are included in this six-disc set. Extras include a six-minute look at the actors' wardrobe and a 25-minute documentary hosted by Togo that explores the similarities (and differences) between real and fictional forensic experts. Also, gamers will get a kick out of the CSI: Hard Evidence PC game that comes with the DVD box set. --Jae-Ha Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars CSI: Miami - One of the Greatest TV Shows on Air Today August 29, 2007
Those who, like me, had the chance to watch at least most of the episodes of this fifth season aired on TV (or occasionally on the web), will probably agree that this season was superb. Like any other shows from the CSI series, the Miami one doesn't really feel like a typical TV Show, but more like a new movie every week or two - but with the same cast.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series December 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
David Caruso is perfect for this part as the head of the Crime Lab in Miami Florida. Out of all the CSI series, this series is the best and the actors accompanying David are perfect for the parts they portray.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sun Is Setting On CSI Miami's Street Cred April 17, 2008
By Sean
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I do enjoy this show and have all the seasons on DVD, but I have to admit Jimmy Park's review is fair and accurate. The lines and direction given to David Caruso are so cringe worthy. For a TV show to be based on something real, it should at least exhibit some reality and believability in order to have credibility. The producers go to so much trouble with lush sets, top notch equipment and other impressive props and yet the writers let us down with banal and ridiculous plots. The 'drive the bomb in the car to a deserted location before it blows' sequence was laughable.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Partial return to form November 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In the fifth season, CSI Miami returned to the formula that had made the show successful, i.e., evidence-based crime drama. The fourth season was marred by bizarre scripts about the private lives of the characters, which degenerated into soap opera toward the end. After wrapping up the loose ends with a spectacular trip to Brazil in the first episode, the action returned to Florida, and the plots became more realistic - or at least less implausible. The series continued to use the same devices - brightly lit scenes of the beaches and oceans, pastel colors, scripts that were often about decadent hedonists committing murder, and of course David Caruso's understated performance. CSI Miami was never an outstanding series, but always watchable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horatio is my favorite.... December 4, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first couple of episodes weren't the best but overall, it is a good series. It kinda looks like they are just putting something together to have a show on a couple of the episodes. That is my only negative. A couple of the old case files came back into the picture and the bad guy comes to justice. I love it when they do that!

Another good season for Miami:CSI!

5.0 out of 5 stars CSI:Miami- The Fifth Season October 25, 2007
Love CSI:Miami....I think it is the best of the CSIs. When Horatio takes off his glasses or puts his hands on his hips, I just howl. The scenery is great and the stories rock. Would love to see Delko and Calleigh get together. Also, would love to see more of the character Valera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roller Coaster Ride of a Season September 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This season was definately a roller coaster of a ride with characters falling into and out of favor. You can really see how Horatio is starting to let what he did in Brazil get to him as he starts to wear darker clothes and start acting a bit more like a caring vigilante than the caring Leutenant that he started out as. The changing of characters and personalities has started something that could end this series in later seasons if the writers aren't careful.
