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.

Admittedly, I don't love this as much the original CSI set in Las Vegas, but I don't like CSI New York and don't watch that at all. I really like this cast (and in the first episode of this season we lose Tim Speedle (who I thought was pretty good in it - maybe a little dull but a nice guy). That was a sad episode but his replacement Ryan Wolfe (who's so cute) does a good job in filling the void. He's an ex cop and takes some time fitting in with the team.

One thing you'll notice if you watch all three franchises is the colour they use for each show. I find Miami is the most colourful. Their lab is sleeker but the outdoor shots are stunning and use vibrant colours - often a lot of yellowy orangey tones (whereas New York is dull and blue and grey and Vegas is somewhere in the middle).

There are 24 episodes in this season and I'm always impressed with how they keep it fresh and different. Someday I'm expecting them to run out of ideas, but in the meantime it's always interesting and really keeps you guessing. There is a little more personal looks into the lives of the CSI agents which you don't see in Vegas, and it's a nice mix.

Overall, this is a great series but I do still prefer the original. Either way, this is a smart and intelligent show that gets me watching every single week. I really like it and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
