Each locale in the CSI family has their own color palette: the original series is a dingy, seedy green, while New York is shot in gloomy blue hues. Miami, on the other hand, is a rich meld of citrus yellows and oranges, as bright as s

Season 3 of CSI Miami really turned up the heat this season as we watch Horatio Caine and his team solve a slough of exciting crimes. In this season, Hortatio comes off as more of a superhero; every third episode or so he is running from an exploding building, narrowly escaping from some natural disaster like a tsunami or hurricane, dodging bullets and still managing to look fabulous with his designer sunglasses. Not that I am complaining, the action and excitement is packed into each episode.

Season 3 continues the story about Horatio's brother, Raymond, who is not dead, as told in the season 2 finale, we see more of Susie and Ray's daughter, Madison, and one of the CSI's dies in the first few episodes. Are you hooked yet? I certainly was after watching just one episode. Another great episode is about everyone's favorite coroner and Eric Delco being trapped AGAIN in the forrest preserve in a flash fire, deja vu all over again!

1. Lost Son: A boat plows into a drawbride and one car falls into the waters below. One of the CSI team gets fatally shot in a shootout.
2. Pro Per: Someone opens fire at party guests at a luxury mansion on the beach. The only witness who saw the shooter is a young boy who saw his mother get shot.
3. Under the Influence: A beautiful woman falls under a bus and mysterious circumstances surround her death.
4. Murder in a Flash: A flash mob of college students happens on a golf course, and after everyone has left a dead body is discovered in the sand trap.
5. Legal: When a body is found in a very posh club (with very cool glass!) everyone is a suspect.

I am a great fan of CSI and while I love all both the original and the NY franchise, CSI MIAMI is my favorite of the shows. I like the Horatio CAINE character and am a huge fan of actor David CARUSO. CSI MIAMI also has the great advantage of unusual diverse locations (the ocean, the Everglades, marinas, etc) which are great backdrops for exciting crime stories, while on the other hand in Vegas there is just desert and neon-lights and New York has been the setting of too many movies and series to be "fresh". Besides, CSI MIAMI stars stunningly beautiful Southern Belle Emily PROCTER :)

I finished the DVD box of season three a couple of days ago. It is great stuff that will appeal to all fans of the series. What I found particularly fascinating with season three is the effort and expenditure that went into it - you know, the episodes are more like condensed feature films for cinematic release. You have a plane crash (episode MONEY PLANE), a yacht ramming a bridge (LOST SON), a tsunami (CRIME WAVE), attacks with rocket propelled grenades (PIRATED), huge explosions (10-7, among others) etc Really awesome! Okay, nitpickers will argue that the computer generated tidal wave in CRIME WAVE was not up to Hollywood blockbuster standard, but hey, it is a TV show! I have seen far worse computer effects.

Season three managed to add more human depth to the characters and their development. There is the death of Speedle in the first episode (very touching, indeed), his replacement by ambitious cop Ryan WOLFE and the evolving rivalry between WOLFE and DELKO, Calleigh's father is still unable to quit the booze (detailed in the unfortunately rather weak episode UNDER THE INFLUENCE) and Horatio learns that his brother is still alive (more on that in the last episode of the series).

Well, Season 3 seriously explained the catch phrase "WE WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN!!!" and HORATIO and his team of good looking "hot" shots just about had everything thrown at them that the criminals and mother nature had to offer. Armed with Intensity, his HUMMER and his Dark Shades - HORATIO KANE - darted around explosions, falling buildings, fires and his "IS -HE-OR-ISN'T-HE-DEAD-BROTHER"... all in all the most entertaining season : visually outstanding, action packed and incredibly intense!!! Here's looking over the dark shades for SEASON 4!!! Again the "YOU CAN ALWAYS BANK ON A WINNER" Bruckheimer delivers the goods... This is ONE SEASON that needs to be standing in all it's glory on your DVD Shelf.

The third season of CSI Miami began very much in the same vein as the second, despite a major change in the cast. Otherwise, the series had evolved both a successful formula and an effective visual style. The formula, derived from the original CSI, involved one or two cases per episode, both decided primarily by the evidence. The cast had settled comfortably into their roles, although some of these remained undeveloped. For the most part, the dialogue was designed to highlight David Caruso, who exudes a combination of virtue and professionalism. The series could be gratuitously morbid. Episodes like Crime Wave and Pirated go overboard in showing waterlogged bodies. At times, the series could become a bit sanctimonious. But apart from this, the scripts were well-written, with tight plotting. After using a primarily episodic format, toward the end of the season the scripts began to incorporate longer story arcs, which led to the elimination of several minor characters. The series' visual quality is one of its best elements. The ocean and skies are shown in azure blue, while most of the exterior scenes in the city use orange and yellow shades. In this respect, CSI Miami draws from the 1980s series Miami Vice, noted for its innovative color schemes.
