After ending a pretty great 7th season, Season Eight had turned around 360 and started to disappoint. Two newcomers to the CSI Miami team, Eddie Cibrian as "Jesse Cardoza" and Omar Miller as "Walter Simmons" made little improvement as the cast began to expand while veteran Adam Rodriguez (Eric Delko) appeared off and on in several episodes while filming the final season of Ugly Betty and the film Tyler Perry's "I Can Do Bad All By Myself". This season, the characters explore the world of cougar women, a company's legal terms with insurance policies, a meth lab explosion, a Hannah Montana-like homicide, the murder of an unpopular office receptionist, an arranged marriage gone wrong, a complete crossover of all CSI series including Las Vegas & New York, and a bag of diamonds gone missing from the evidence locker. As lives are threatened, as one of the CSI members gets accused for something they didn't do, as Horatio's son Kyle (played by Evan Ellingson) returns from the war with a personal problem, and a season-ender with everyone in the lab fallen ill, who knows what will come next in Season Nine?

this Season of CSI: Miami did not dissapoint. It was full of action and creative plots. I like the new characters and the way they chose to introduce them. I thought the inclusion of Horatio's son was great too. If you think it is getting old and tired, watch these and you will see that CSI: Miami is still Bringing it!

Don't have to say much about it, if you've seen CSI you know what I mean. I got this for my father, he has the collection and it's great. Good quality video.

CSI: Miami - The Eighth SeasonGood TV drama, the CSI series, this one is my favorite. David Caruso's character Horatio Cane is a force to be reckoned with. Spectacular action, some unpleasant images (corpes, decomposition) etc. Overall I rate this as an excellent TV drama with very good writers and production staff, although filmed in California, a Miami feel to the show is also one of the characters. Co-star Emily Procter is smart, sexy and more that able to hold her own. One of the best shows on TV today!

We had watched this off DVD, but purchased it off Amazon to watch it in preparation for Malcolm McDowell's guest appearances in the just ended 2011-2012 season of CSI: Miami. This is an interesting episode where CSI Cardoza's (Eddie Cibrian's) character's past plays a key role in solving the case before the team. A murder with ties to a crime Cardoza had investigated during his time in LA leads to Horatio and Delco heading to LA to investigate allegations that Cardoza had not properly investigated a case and lead to a suspected murderer being found not guilty of a crime. Horatio and Delco are able to show that Cardoza was set up in order to get the suspect off, clearing Cardoza.

This episode was interesting in that it got part of the team out of Miami. Guest star Malcolm McDowell plays yet another of the smart, creepy characters he seems to be typecast in. As always, he plays the character so well that you hate the character's actions but love his performance. If you're watching the 2011-2012 I highly recommend watching this episode because a confrontation between Malcolm McDowell's lawyer character and Horatio is referenced in toward the end of the 2011-2012 season whenm Malcolm McDowell's law firm sets up a branch in Miami that the CSI team runs up against.

This was a rather interesting set of stories, with some additions (good) to the series and yet Delko is still there (bad). This fellow is hard to
comprehend, in and out of the episodes all the while continuing his "stalking" of Kelly. He left the series (good) but unfortunately keeps returning.
In one episode someone tried to kill him (sad) but he survived (really sad). He's a good investigator but does weird things that I dislike; I under-
stand he left to do some producing, something I doubt I would watch. Probably a nice guy but I don't cotton to his character. New guys entered
the scenes and I like them all; a rather large black guy, two white guys but how about more sexy ladies? A new forensic pathologist (a man) also
joined the team and he has a sense of humor which the series needs a bit more of (like the NCIS series). Still, a bunch of episodes that are very
interesting, action packed but while very enjoyable not always believable. There was this "sci fi" episode about a space shuttle like device that
takes people up into orbit for 10 days for a paltry 2 million dollars (not rubles thank god!). Of course there was a murder aboard. A meteorite
damaged the oxygen supply and they said they killed him to save the lives of the other guys. But the ship had power landing engines and was
small so why didn't they make an emergency landing; it was small and could have landed at any reasonably sized airport. About the size of a
large Lear Jet; in fact, I think the producers used one with added Rocket engine on the rear. Look very believable and effective. Good inside
cabin design too. But the story was very good.
Overall a very good season; two more to go. I gave it 4 Stars though 5 Stars minus Delko.
