Show Synopsis: (from the producer) CSI: MIAMI is a fast-paced drama inspired by the top-rated series CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION that follows a South Florida team of forensic investigators who use both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned police work to solve crimes. Horatio Caine (David Caruso), a former homicide detective, heads a group of investigators who work crimes amid the steamy tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. His team includes Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter), a bilingual Southern beauty with a specialty in ballistics; Tim Speedle (Rory Cochrane), a cocky but disarming investigator who is well connected on the street; and Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez), an underwater recovery expert who knows all the twists and turns of the Florida waterways. Rounding out the team is Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander), the no-nonsense know-it-all coroner. Kim Delaney joins the cast as DNA specialist Megan Donner, whose trust in science creates conflict with Caine, who relies more on gut instinct. Together, these investigators collect and analyze the evidence to solve the crimes and to vindicate those who often cannot speak for themselves, the victims.[ Send Yours ]

Horatio, the main character, was extremely touched by the fact that "it's not just flesh" when they looked at the “fetus” under a microscope.
Caution—This show could be a good scientific mystery but they have sold out for sensationalism and sexuality and shock value. It is ruined by the smut. Too bad.
Usually Okay—This show is wonderful! No, I wouldn't recommend it
for children under age ten, but that would be why they air so late at
night. The best thing about CSI Miami is the content. Any violence is only to
show how the crime took place, and it is softened, far from the harsh
shock of Hollywood violence. Sex is not a part of the plot lines. Bad
language is another thing missing from CSI Miami. The characters have strong
moral convictions, and use their problem solving skills to obtain justice
for the victims. From a Christian standpoint, I believe CSI Miami to be the
Usually Okay—I love the show and I think David Caruso is perfect for the
