Product Description

Join lead criminalist Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and his state-of-the-art forensics team as they investigate hot and steamy Miami crimes using cold hard facts. The CSI: Miami Season 5 Complete DVD Collection features 24 episodes of riveting and shocking mysteries. The evidence leads into seedy nightclubs, privileged suburbs and explosive family secrets. The stakes are higher than ever before, because this time it’s personal.

Amazon.com

The fifth season of CSI: Miami begins with revenge: Lead CSI Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and underwater recovery whiz Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) travel to Brazil to avenge the murder of Horatio's wife Marisol (who was Eric's sister). While there, Horatio also helps his sister-in-law and nephew after his brother is murdered by drug lords. (Never mind that the crime-fighting duo seem to have carte blanche to do as they like in a foreign country.) The scenes are beautifully shot and the rhythm of the first few episodes are reminiscent of classic Miami Vice. The most stylistic--and hammy--show in the CSI franchise, CSI: Miami is driven by Caruso's quiet delivery. Never one to get overly excited, Horatio rarely exhibits more than a shy smile or a whispery threat. In this season, two CSIs--Ryan Wolfe (Jonathan Togo) and Natalia Boa Vista (Eva La Rue) face professional and personal problems that could threaten their jobs, while Horatio himself battles a recurring nemesis who always seems to be one step ahead of him. The crimes range from an apparent death by grizzly bear to what looks like an off-shore betting pool dealing with celebrity deaths. After solving the latter case, ballistics expert Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter) observes that "Somebody will always think it's easy to make [money]." Taking his classic hands on hips stance, Horatio says, "But we know different, don't we?" Considered smarmy by some, and dreamy by others, Caruso is a love-him-or-hate-him kind of actor. While he doesn't have the depth of William Petersen (star of the original CSI), his preening works in the context of the glitzier CSI: Miami. All 24 episodes, which originally ran during 2006-2007, are included in this six-disc set. Extras include a six-minute look at the actors' wardrobe and a 25-minute documentary hosted by Togo that explores the similarities (and differences) between real and fictional forensic experts. Also, gamers will get a kick out of the CSI: Hard Evidence PC game that comes with the DVD box set. --Jae-Ha Kim

Those who, like me, had the chance to watch at least most of the episodes of this fifth season aired on TV (or occasionally on the web), will probably agree that this season was superb. Like any other shows from the CSI series, the Miami one doesn't really feel like a typical TV Show, but more like a new movie every week or two - but with the same cast.

What hooks me in CSI: Miami is definitely its tropicalesque setting that sets it apart from other CSIs shows, its inventive, smart and curious cases and the graphic production, which is very attractive and well-done.

I also think that Horatio Caine (David Caruso) is the protagonist who gives the show a very distinctive appeal, playing the "super-hero-macho-man" role and, sometimes, overshadowing the other characters. This is another characteristic that makes CSI: Miami unique in comparison to other CSIs shows that don't really have so much focus on just one character. This seems to be so true that the DVD box set cover of this fifth season has only Horatio's close-up and downtown Miami buildings in the background. Can anybody see the rest of the cast? If this is fair, well, that's not up to me.

There's just one thing for sure - CSI: Miami is one of the greatest TV Shows on air today.

David Caruso is perfect for this part as the head of the Crime Lab in Miami Florida. Out of all the CSI series, this series is the best and the actors accompanying David are perfect for the parts they portray.

In the fifth season, CSI Miami returned to the formula that had made the show successful, i.e., evidence-based crime drama. The fourth season was marred by bizarre scripts about the private lives of the characters, which degenerated into soap opera toward the end. After wrapping up the loose ends with a spectacular trip to Brazil in the first episode, the action returned to Florida, and the plots became more realistic - or at least less implausible. The series continued to use the same devices - brightly lit scenes of the beaches and oceans, pastel colors, scripts that were often about decadent hedonists committing murder, and of course David Caruso's understated performance. CSI Miami was never an outstanding series, but always watchable.

I think at this point I'm following the show simply because of David Caruso who, sadly, seems to be in fewer episodes of the series the further we go along. He's there for the head craned at a crime scene, the pun and the glasses and the "YEAAAH!", but otherwise it's the other cardboard characters that seem to occupy most of the show. I will admit the season opener in Brazil was pretty cool - strong on style if not on substance and plausibility. Additionally, the Delko head-injury sub-plot was an interesting one, although from now on I'm going to watch as that scar on the back of his head will likely completely vanish (plus head injuries and concussions tend to be the most harmless and most easily-recovered from thing in film and TV). I did like the Delko hospital sequence and the inclusion of music from Beck's 'Sea Change' album... that sort of hazy, woozy music was PERFECT for someone in a hospital with a head injury.
I'm going to make it through the rest of the series, but I'm expecting even less and less of Caruso and just more super-skinny, cosmetically-augmented other characters doing the work, after Caruso get's his signature pun at the beginning of the show then vanishes for most of the rest of the episode...

Loved the characters, their interactions, the crimes and how they were solved. Love to see this show renewed. Great fun, entertaining, and educational (for those of us who know nothing about catching the criminal).

CSI Miami is interesting to watch and I really enjoy it. I have all the seasons now and have watched every single one. I know a lot of people think it's lame, but I really don't care. I enjoy it and will probably watch it over and over again. I find it interesting and fun.

CSI:Miami is one of my favorite shows and since I live in Florida, this was a must-have.

PRODUCT PROS:
- DVDs, cover, case, video quality are in excellent condition.
- The cover has a nice "holographic" style to it.
PRODUCT CONS:
- none

SHOW PROS:
- Too many to mention.
SHOW CONS:
- Horatio's movements and one-liners do get a bit annoying but I'm still a huge fan.
- For all who don't live in FL, it's not always this bright and sunny, it actually rains a lot.

FINAL RATING: 5/5

This season slowed down a little bit compared to season 4. Intensity was there, but as the season progress, less chaos between episodes. Opening was cool in Brazil. Season closer wasn't that hyped, though the story was good. Highlights: Delko almost dies, Horatio saves a stripper, Wolf gets fired, and nicer looking cars. . .
