CSI: Crime Scene Investigation took television by storm in 2000 with its innovative and cutting-edge updating of a standard series concept - in this case, the cop show. Suddenly, instead of simply whodunit, solving crimes was a matter of howdunit, and with what size shoe, and whether anyone left behind traces of evidence that the blue ALS light could pick up. Now that gritty approach to crime known as forensic science makes its way from Las Vegas to the streets of Florida in CSI: Miami. A whole new team of crime scene investigators is on hand to probe the seamy underside of what some refer to as Cuba North and others call Georgia South. Consider it a tropical blend of people, culture, nightlife and, of course, the occasional killing or two. Just as you do in Vegas, come for the crime, stick around for the clues. And there's always a clue.



1. DAVID CARUSO (as Lieutenant Horatio Caine)
"CSI Level 3 - CSI Department Head (Seasons 1-present)"
Specialty: Arson and Explosives
Lieutenant Horatio "H" Caine is the head of the Miami-Dade crime lab, a former NYPD homicide detective, a forensic analyst, and former bomb squad officer. Horatio is known to be very protective of his team, often going out of his way to assist them when needed. He is an outstanding marksman, and does not hesitate to use deadly force. He also very often goes to extraordinary lengths to save evidence or a potential victim. His demeanor is serious, direct, and to the point. Horatio appears to have a good sense for how to communicate with children who have just experienced traumatic ordeals. Horatio uses the "stay-calm" approach while comforting victims, killers, etc. Horatio is usually seen wearing a pair of sunglasses. Horatio was briefly married to Marisol Delko Caine; the marriage ended when she was murdered by a Mala Noche sniper in "Rampage". In "Dangerous Son", Horatio discovered that he has a sixteen-year-old son named Kyle Harmon.

2. EMILY PROCTER (as Det. Calleigh Duquesne)
"CSI Level 3 - Day Shift Assistant Supervisor (Seasons 1-present)"
Specialty: Ballistics
Calleigh Duquesne is a ballistics specialist. Calleigh's slight build, blonde good looks, and southern belle accent often lead others to underestimate her, but she is a brilliant and dedicated scientist. Her father is an alcoholic attorney who has tried to rehabilitate himself several times. She follows the letter of the rules at all times.

3. ADAM RODRIGUEZ (as Det. Eric Delko)
"CSI Level 3; MDPD Detective (Seasons 1-present)"
Specialty: Tire Tracks, Fingerprints, Drug ID, Diving
Eric Delko is the fingerprint and drug identification expert of Cuban and Russian descent. He is also the team's underwater recovery expert.

4. JONATHAN TOGO (as Det. Ryan Wolfe)
"CSI Level 3; MDPD Detective (Seasons 3-present)"
Specialty: DNA
Ryan Wolfe was working as a police officer at the time he was hired for the lab virtually on the spot by Horatio Caine, who noted Ryan's immaculate care of his gun with approval, likely due to Wolfe having OCD. He first appeared in "Under the Influence" but did not become a regular cast member until "Hell Night." Ryan was replacing fallen CSI Tim Speedle, who died in the line of duty as a direct result of his poor gun maintenance.

5. REX LINN (as Sgt. Frank Tripp)
"MPDP Homicide Detective Sergeant (Seasons 1-present)"
Specialty: Warrants
Sergeant Frank Tripp is a Texan-born homicide detective who regularly accompanies the team to the crime scenes. He has a good working relationship with all the CSIs. He is divorced with three kids, revealed in "Dispo Day". Throughout the early part of the series, Frank and Horatio didn't get along very well, but recently they are often seen together at crime scenes. After Ryan Wolfe gets fired and later re-instated, Tripp and Ryan appear to be at odds.

6. EVA LARUE (as Natalia Boa Vista)
"CSI Level 1 (Seasons 4-present)"
Natalia Boa Vista is a DNA analyst who upon first arriving, was only allowed to work on cold or unsolved cases due to the restrictions of her federal grant. She escaped an abusive marriage before joining the department, when her association with a society for battered women was key to helping the team solve the murder of a woman. At the end of season four, it is revealed that Natalia is an FBI informant in the lab, assigned to help build a case against Horatio Caine and his team. Natalia was revealed to be the mole in the lab.

7. OMAR BENSON MILLER (as Walter Simmons)
"CSI Level 1 (Seasons 8-present)"
Walter Simmons is a Louisiana native and art theft specialist who transfers over from the night shift to join Horatio's team.


8. SOFIA MILOS (as Det. Yelina Salas)
"Homicide Detective (Seasons 1-2, 5-7)"
Detective Yelina Salas was a Colombian homicide detective frequently attached to CSI investigations, and the widow of Horatio's brother Raymond. She later starts a relationship with IAB Sergeant Rick Stetler, Horatio's personal nemesis. After her husband Raymond was revealed to be alive, she left with him and their son for Brazil, where they planned to keep a low profile for Raymond's safety. She reappears in Season 5, to hunt down Antonio Riaz, who murdered Caine's wife Marisol. Yelina investigates a suspect for Horatio, and she locates a birth certificate that reveals that the parolee is in fact Horatio's biological son.

9. EDDIE CIBRIAN (as Jesse Cardoza)
"CSI Level 2 (Deceased)"
Jesse Cardoza was a former LAPD officer, who transferred back to the MDPD. In "Out of Time", a flashback occurs back to 1997, depicting Cardoza's departure from the Miami crime lab and transfer to Los Angeles, following in the conclusion of a case which led to Horatio Caine becoming head of the new investigative unit that became CSI. He returns in "Hostile Takeover", as a member of the team, taking Eric Delko's place. When he returns, the lab is attacked and he is taken hostage along with three other people, but he was rescued by Horatio. In June 2010, it was announced the Cibrian was not picked up as a regular for the ninth season and his character would be leaving. It was revealed in the ninth season premiere that he died after being poisoned by halon gas in the eighth season finale, having suffered head trauma in the fall.

10. VIK SAHAY (as Dr. Alex Woods)
"Medical Examiner (Retired)"
Specialty: Forensic Pathology
Dr. Alex Woods was a Miami-Dade medical examiner. Alexx began her medical career in New York as a physician and became a medical examiner with the CSI team after moving to Miami for personal reasons. She is a very emotional person, and is more of a "mother" figure for the CSI team, showing great concern for them. She often talks to the dead bodies in a comforting and caring tone as she examines them. She is married with a young son and daughter with former husband Andrew Kalish, who was murdered in an episode early on in the series. Alexx, however, is not the Chief Medical Examiner, as noted in one of the episodes when she was offered a transfer to the night shift by the Chief Medical Examiner, but rejected the position. In the episode "Rock and a Hard Place", her son is named the prime suspect in a murder, this causes Alexx to rethink her job in the M.E.'s Office (and her place on the team as well as her friendship with the other CSIs), and she quits saying to Horatio, "I need to spend more of my time taking care of the living." Horatio responds by saying that should she wish to return, her post would be open for her.

11. EVAN ELLINSON (as Kyle Harmon)
Kyle Harmon is the son of the show's protagonist, Lieutenant Horatio Caine. He has been occupied as a student and a city morgue assistant, and is currently a soldier in the United States Army.

12. ELIZABETH BERKLEY (as Julia Winston)
Julia Winston is Horatio's ex-girlfriend and Kyle Harmon's mother who reappears during the murder investigation of her current husband. With Clavo Cruz dead, Julia served as the show's antagonist, but is was also shown she is being forced into some evil actions by a psychotic ex-lover.


Inspired by the top-rated series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami follows a South Florida team of forensic investigators/police officers who use both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned police work to solve crimes. Horatio Caine heads the team of investigators while working crimes in the steamy tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. Horatio's team probes cases similar to those of their Las Vegas counterparts, but the Miami CSI team are also police officers as well as forensic investigators.

1. Sela Ward was offered the role of Megan Donner but turned it down.
2. The Miami-Dade Police Department's crime scene processing unit is called the "Crime Scene Investigations Bureau (CSIB)", but unlike the TV show, MDPD's CSI technicians do not conduct laboratory testing. Miami-Dade Police Department has a separate Bureau that operates the Miami-Dade Crime Lab.
3. While all the fly-over shots, skylines and cityscapes really are of Miami, Florida, any beach scenes during the series were filmed at Manhattan Beach, a suburb of Los Angeles.
4. "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000) star William Petersen was offered the chance to produce this show, but declined.
5. Believing that CSI copycat shows were inevitable, CSI producers and CBS agreed to create this spin-off series in the hope of being the first to copy the original CSI series.
6. The design of the autopsy theatre was based on a misremembering of a set from The Andromeda Strain (1971).
7. Horatio was named after the Victorian era "rags to riches" novelist Horatio Alger.
8. During the opening credits, the actors' names morph out of equations:
- 4y - 1 = 3b(Nh) becomes David Caruso
- 3a1 - X = (A9Xy) becomes Emily Procter
- 3b + N = 7bn1(6A) becomes Adam Rodriguez
- 2b + 4a = (7h)3XyNh becomes Khandi Alexander
- A1b + B2c = R4 becomes 'Kim Delaney'
- (7b) = 6m + (3h) becomes Jonathan Togo
- (3h) + (7b) = 6 becomes Rory Cochrane.
9. Although some beach scenes may have been shot outside of Southeast Florida, several have been shot in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.
10. Food items are frequently used to simulate injuries to corpses (i.e., roast chicken skin is used to simulate burns.)
11. Don Johnson was considered for Horatio Caine.
12. Although the City of Miami counts 35% of its population as Cuban, Adam Rodriguez is the only cast member to be of Cuban descent (he is 1/4 Cuban).
13. David Caruso is right-handed but left eye dominant, evident when he is shooting his pistol.
14. Two frequent characters, Calleigh Duquesne and Maxine Valera, have names that closely resemble those of two installations in the Skylark SciFi series by Edward E. Smith.
15. While the majority of the techniques and technologies used in the CSI shows are accurate and true to reality, the writers and crew readily admit that they "time cheat". Tests that take seconds in the show often take days or even weeks in real life.
16. Wes Ramsey, who plays Dave Benton from "Divorce Party" (season 7, chapter 17) ahead, had a previous role in "Spring Break" (season 1, chapter 21) like a sexual predator who stalked girls to abuse them.
17. To date, is the only CSI series not to have an Academy Award nominee as the leading actor or as regular cast member.

1. Factual Errors: While often the science and technology portrayed in the series (as well as the other CSI series) is accurate or mirrors sound scientific principle, there have been times when methods have led to results simply not possible in the real world.
2. Factual Errors: In the Czech dubbing of the series, the female character Maxine Valera is often referred to as a man, "Valera" being "his" first name. This is caused by the lack of knowledge of the translators in terms of first name/last name usage in the United States. In Czech, a name sounding similar to "Valera" would be men's name.
3. Factual Errors: Numerous times, autopsies are conducted by people who were wearing the same clothes they wore in the field. Not only does this promote cross-contamination, but it is also highly unsanitary as well as an OSHA violation.
4. Factual Errors: In many episodes, a suspect is found because a gun was registered to them or someone is threatened with the charge of "possession of an unregistered firearm", or some other reference is made to a firearms registration database. The state of Florida has fairly relaxed gun control laws, and there is no gun registration system anywhere in the state.
5. Factual Errors: In many occasions, when arresting a suspect, Horatio's team is able to exact a confession but never the Miranda's right are read to the suspect, which can and will be used to render the confession unusable in a court of law.
6. Errors in Geography: In many exterior scenes, California hills are visible in the background. South Florida is mostly flat.
7. Errors in Geography: When they refer to the Dade County Jail, we are shown an aerial view of Everglades and Dade Correction institutions. These are two state run prisons located adjacent to each other in Dade county. 
8. Errors Made by Characters (possible deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Numerous times a character will refer to Miami University. Miami University is located in Oxford, Ohio; the University of Miami is located in Florida.
9. Continuity: The investigation team routinely photographs the crime scene before allowing evidence to be touched or moved. Many times, however, a piece of evidence is picked up and handled before being photographed.

Video Description:
Edited clips showing loads of the corny one-liners used by David Caruso just before the Who song starts on CSI Miami.
Video Category: Entertainment


TV Show Title and Introduction = 20/20
TV Show Format/Concept = 19/20
Performance of the Cast = 20/20
Public Popularity Hit = 20/20
Use of Comedy/Drama = 19/20


- One of what I believe as the best TV show title introduction. The TV show introduction features an introductory scene which shows the show's crime scene, which is then followed by the recognizable "wwwyaaahhhh" tone introducing the different cast of the show with their names introduced by an equation. I really like how the show starts with Caruso putting in his shades saying his memorable quotes. I sometimes tend to always get ready for that scene when I watch the show in AXN.

- The format/concept of the show was based on the 2000 CBS TV Show flick Crime Scene Investigation. But, the main difference between CSI: Miami and CSI, is their time shift and location. CSI Miami is only based on the day shift of the CSI investigators within the Miami-Dade territorial limits; while CSI is based on the night shift of the CSI investigators within the Las Vegas territorial limits. However, I like CSI: Miami more than the CSI Las Vegas show flick since, not just because it focuses on the crimes done within the sunny mornings and afternoons within Miami, but the unique and new approach of stories relating with crime and drama in the Southern Eastern Coast of United States. 

- One of the most memorable cast members in the show is, simply, Horatio Caine, his different type of approach in the show makes the viewers love the show a little bit more. His very cautious and unharmful way of solving crimes makes the show much more interesting compared to the very harsh and direct approach of the crime scene dramas of TV today like Law and Order and Hawaii Five-O. Additional characters in this show which are considered to be notable are Calleigh Duquesne and Natalia Boa Vista. I like how Emily Procter and Eva LaRue portray their roles within show. If a person will watch CSI: Miami, what they will first recognize is the innocent or very "unscary" yet courageous tactics of Calleigh and Natalia. They truly show the women that the world needs now. Noting only three characters may make up my commentary on this part of my blog but there are still more characters take noting. 

- The show is one of the Top Rated TV Shows in America and also in the Whole World. As stated by Informa Telecoms and Media, CSI: Miami is featured in more top ten viewing charts than any other show in the world. It has basically the highest TV show viewers in any crime drama TV show with the exception of its brother version "Crime Scene Investigation (Las Vegas)". It has an average 16,200,000 Viewers per episode. 

- Drama played a very huge role in the TV series. The show did not just focus on the regular crime scene investigation story but also in the drama behind each crime scene investigation. The show also focused on the drama behind the CSI investigators. Sometimes the story behind the crime scene are not as in the level with the story behind each crime scene investigator. I really liked how CSI: Miami was made for the public. 

VI. JR's General Perception and Suggestions
- CSI: Miami is JR's Most Favorite Crime Drama Series of All Time, followed by CSI NY and Hawaii Five-O. Having a unique approach to crime scenes, CSI: Miami is set on a day setting with a crime scene that's not regular in our basic human life. For real, Miami is not faced with a lot of crimes daily but CSI: Miami makes solving crimes a bit interesting because of its picturesque location. Well, JR will present to you guys his CSI NY review this April and his CSI review by January 2012. By the way, JR celebrates a special CSI month on March 2012. See you there. :)

  1. This show is amazing. I'm always hooked to seeing Erik Delko. Sometimes I stay at work and have to miss my show. I hate when that happens. I heard that Xfinity was doing TV everywhere which is a great idea if you could actually go outside your home. Working for DISH we had started the same this but I was unsure about it. I researched it a little more and came to find that you can be anywhere outside your home. So I took advantage of TV everywhere with DISH and I love it! Now I never have to miss an Erik Delko moment.
