Overview

The firsts spin-off of CBS' successful crime investigation series CSI shifted the setting to Miami, and marked the return of former NYPD Blue leading man David Caruso to the small screen. This seven-disc set contains each of CSI Miami's 25 first-season episodes. Each is presented in the original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while Spanish soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. Commentary by people involved in the show is provided on four of the episodes, and five behind-the-scenes featurettes reveal information about how the series came to be, how the special effects employed in the show are accomplished, and offer a virtual tour of some of the sets. This is a solid release from Paramount.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer brought feature-quality writing and production values to episodic TV with the Emmy Award-winning series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. The first of what would prove to be many successful spin-offs, CSI: Miami quickly established its own following, winning several awards in this first run, including an Emmy. Paramount's seven-disc box set collects all 25 episodes from Miami's 2002-3 season and includes a bonus disc crammed with features. The spin-off is a brighter-looking show, taking place mostly during daytime in sun-bleached Miami, as opposed to the nocturnal Vegas settings of the original. David Caruso brings his trademark intensity to the role of crime scene investigation team leader Horatio Caine, and Emily Proctor emerges as the most interesting supporting character, ballistics expert Calleigh Duquesne. Some first-season episodes also include Kim Delaney -- like Caruso, an alumnus of NYPD Blue -- but she washed out before the series hit its stride. The mysteries are solidly constructed and, as in the original, interest develops from watching the tedious work that goes into analyzing even the most minute bits of physical evidence. The individual episodes hold up extremely well, but a major asset to this box set is its assortment of supplements. The discs are also graced with several commentaries from Miami's writers and producers, who describe the filming of key scenes and reveal interesting background info with admirable specificity.

Although I don't know which episodes of which seasons I have seen I do know that David Caruso is amazing in this show. He gives so much heart in this show like he did in NYPD Blue. I love him and I think that if you like the original CSI and you like David Caruso as much as I do you should definitley pick this dvd up.
