CSI: Miami: Season 4

The season, which ran during 2005-2006, includes a crossover episode with CSI: New York. Unfortunately, only the Miami segment is included on this set, leaving viewers to wonder what happened in Part 2 when Caine and Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) team up to capture a serial killer who locks children in the closet while he murders their parents. Still, there are some excellent episodes on this set, including one where a team of scam artists pose as father and children to steal a slew of money from the local country club Richie Riches. Another involves a group of college kids intent on recreating the violence they've played on a Grand Theft Auto-type of videogame. In many ways, this season is more about style than substance. Why else would there be avant-garde subtitles for one sequence where the criminal is speaking perfectly coherent English? More so than in previous seasons, there is a soap opera mentality to the show that's entertaining, but out of place in this series. Horatio is involved in a doomed romance, there's a romantic triangle between colleagues, and all too much is made of a possible mole within the lab who is leaking confidential information. While Caine's whispered threats lend a certain entertaining cachet to the show, his preening gets old fast. When he enters a room, Caine plants himself into a theatrical stance that makes him look less like a tough guy than one of Charlie's Angels. Too bad there's not a swab that can fix that. --Jae-Ha Kim

But in Season 4, this show really takes off by adding subplots that set it apart from the other CSI shows and make the characters more interesting.
You now know Eric Delko has a sister who has cancer that he's helping get pot for. You see Ryan Wolfe's love and dedication to his job through the storyline involving a threat to his eyesight. Even coroner Alexx Woods has a meaty episode in which she's given an opportunity to work with another team.
These storylines are merely a backdrop to the thrilling cliff-hangers the writers/producers cooked up for this year: the identity of the mole in the lab and the continuing war against the Mala Noches.
All of these arcs are so well-handled that you'll be on the edge of your seat until the final episode of this season.
I have been HUGE fan of David Caruso's for years and was thrilled when I heard he was going to be the lead actor in a CSI spin-off. Emily Procter was fantastic in the West Wing and I recember her from an early episode of Friends.
I would recommend this DVD set for anyone who loves great television.

American TV shows have been a vehicle used to spread and promote the American way of life (occasionally while glorifying it) for years. In my opinion, no other show conveys the essence of the American dream better than CSI Miami - and that's the source of its phenomenal success.
Police work and life in general have never looked so attractive and fulfilling; Florida, what a beautiful land, even more when all the females you ever get to see (cast members or random passers-by) are top models. The cars the police officers drive are fancy Hummers, the equiptment used for the CSI work is always on the top of the line. Most of the crimes are committed in the best and wealthiest neighborhoods, mostly by - you must have guessed - handsome/beautiful, charming and occasionally rich criminals. The poor victims seem almost good looking on their deathbeds. Add to that the amazing speed in which justice is served (usually within 40 minutes), and you get the most easily watched syndicated program in the history of television.
It should be noted that the creators of the show do not shy away from planting the expected crimes in places in which sometimes the most unusual, disturbing and bizarre types of behaviors found within the American society happen; from getaway promiscuous parties for bored wives, to arranged dates for men with shameless gold diggers going to one night stand meetings for men and willing women, and so forth. These outrageous and often sensational plot contexts undoubtly contribute to the appeal of the series no less than all the other elements.
The entertainment-value of the final outcome is undisputable.Read more ›
