Being a CSI las Vegas fan, I wasn't happy when they made CSI Miami. I picked this up due to the summer break of CSI, I needed something.. and this was my choice! I can honestly say that it was a worthwhile purchase after having watched all of the episodes. True David Caruso is no Gil Grissom, but would you want him to be? The feel of the series is very different with the set being in Miami. The cast is on par with the Las vegas cast. Las Vegas has a more personal feel to it, as many times the originals bring their personal lives into the story (i.e. Catherine being a stripper, Warrick being a Gambler), and you don't find that as much in Miami. The focus seems to stay more to the storyline.
Kim Delaney was a welcome cast-off in my opinion. She dragged the series down with her poor attitude, and had no chemistry with David Caruso. She came across as an uptight investigator who had no interest in getting along with her fellow CSIs, or have any passion in getting the truth. I was very glad when she finally left.
Another difference between Las Vegas and Miami that is striking is how each CSI is an expert in their certain field. Callegh is the "Bullet Girl", Speedle is the AV expert, Delco is the Diving tech who speaks russian, and spanish, acts as the go between the Cuban community and the MDPD. Alexx talks to her patients as they were still alive, and in general is friendlier then Al Robbins of Las Vegas.
In conclusion, try it, the two CSIs are comparable, like the many Law and Order spinoffs, you can choose your favorite, but in my opinion each one is strong, and holds its own. You can enjoy either, but take a vacation from Las Vegas to Miami.

CSI: Miami is a great "detective" show. The people behind this show tend to do a pretty good job of keeping things realistic and each episode typically features a plausable situation. While the show focuses more so on solving the cases and investigating the crime scene, they do tend to insert small pieces of sub-plot regarding each of the main characters, so the show is not without sufficient character development.
Typically, CSI: Miami is a good show to watch if you want to see the scientific side of things. Rather than most other police shows, which focus less on what goes on behind the scenes and more on the detective characters. However, while the main characters lack the focus of other shows, they are still enjoyable to watch. David Caruso does an excellent job with his performance as the logical and thorough Horatio Caine, while each of the other characters support him nicely.
I'd highly recommend this series to anyone who appreciates the scientific side of crime scene investigation. It's well worth your time.

There have been constant complaints about CSI: Miami because it is too similar to CSI. People have to realize that this show is not totally disconnected from CSI, but rather it is a spin-off by the same producer, writers, etc... The jobs are similar in crime scene investigations. The characters seem similar at first, but they are worlds apart.

Gil Grissom dislikes getting attached to cases in any way, but Horatio Caine is either your best friend (to the victims) or your worst enemy (to the suspects and the criminals).

Calleigh Duquesne is comparable to Catherine Willows. Both have family problems, both are often having trouble with men. (Calliegh- they are all over her, Catherine- just can't find a good one)

Eric and Nick are both the "ladies man" of their groups. They also have problems with evidence, Eric sneezes on it once, and Nick pulls the coating off an "ancient" sword once when he is finger printing it. Yet, we still see differences. Eric's family is very important to him, while we never hear things about Nick's family.

Kim Delaney's character, Meghan, and Sara Sidle can be deemed similar in only one aspect- they both have problems. Sara was abused and abused alcohol. Meghan's husband died and she cannot get over it.

The coroners are different as well. Doc Robbins is nonchalant and even drinks coffee when he is telling Grissom about the victim. Alexx Woods feels pain for the victims and talks to them as if they were talking back.

The characters are a little more dramatic on a regular basis, but less dramatic at big crime scenes.

I was quite the skeptic about this series from the moment I saw "Cross Jurisdictions." As an avid CSI fan, I was outraged that Anthony Zuiker and Jerry Bruckheimer were looking to turn their winning formula into a franchise, and spin it off in Law & Order fashion. I believed that sure, it worked for Law & Order, because each series was different than the original. Each dealt with different areas of investigation and prosecution. But to use the same crime-scene investigating formula over and over, just changing the cities around, did not appeal to me whatsoever.

That was four years ago. Now, as CSI: Miami moves into its fourth season, I have become a fan. Where I once was annoyed by Horatio Caine (his penchant for removing and replacing his sunglasses as well as his constant hands-on-hips stance), I began to like his character; the gentle way in which he treated the victims, his passion for solving cases and putting the bad guys away.... not to mention his obvious chemistry with MDPD's resident "Bullet Girl" -- the lovely Southern belle, Calleigh Duquesne.

The Horatio/Calleigh chemistry was what spurred me to purchase season one, and I am so far very pleased with the purchase. Other Horatio/Calleigh fans should consider buying season one, as all the great "H/C" episodes are contained therein: "Kill Zone", "Camp Fear", etc.

I still don't like the way Alexx Woods speaks to the cadavers in her autopsy theater. As a future pathologist, it just makes me roll my eyes. Otherwise, this was a worthwhile purchase.

I guess you could say that the skeptic has become the believer.
