I actually came late to CSI:Miami. I was not a fan of Dana Delany, so I did not give the show a chance when it first aired. Last year I caught an episode and really like it, so I have in the last 7 months watched 5 (now 6) seasons worth, and this is by far the slowest of seasons.
I like the fact that CSI: Miami has more of a serial feel to the show than its counterparts and that not everything always winds up in a neat little package in an hour all the time. But some of the character development of season 6 was incredibly drawn out and made for some very slow developing plot lines that can strain the most ardent of CSI: Miami fans. Fortunately, I already know there is somewhat of a payoff for this in future seasons (particularly with Kyle).
If you are already a CSI:Miami fan, then you will like this season, though perhaps not as much as others, if you are not necesarily a fan, or are fairly new to the show, this may leave a sour taste in your mouth (though in all honesty, why would you start the series in the middle? Or like some, bash the 6th season of a show you already do not like).
How did this series last as long as it did? They use magical technology even Star Trek doesn't have, the pretty boys and girls were clearly not chosen for their acting ability, and not one person seems halfway competent at their job. Caruso in particular seems more determined to stand around trying to look cool in his sunglasses than doing...well, anything else really. Is there is a way I can give this series a negative rating?
