CSI: Miami is now in its ninth season, after it originally premiered in 2002 as a spin-off from the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Compared to other spin-offs, this has been the most popular with viewers and is my personal favorite.
Most episodes follow a formula in which the team of detectives seeks a perpetrator using a set of clues. Many people would think this would make the show stale, but there is enough unpredictably in the plots that the show stays interesting.
Lt. Horatio Caine, portrayed by David Caruso, and Det. Calleigh Duquesne, portrayed by Emily Procter, have both been in the CSI: Miami since the beginning, and this show would not have lasted as long without either of them. They keep the show interesting with their unique acting styles and are able to portray eccentric and believable characters.
In my opinion, compared to other spin-offs, CSI: Miami is the best investigative drama. The crimes and situations the show portrays are a lot more entertaining to watch than other crime shows.
The desire to know who committed each crime is what makes viewers keep watching.
The show leads you to believe it is going to be one suspect, but in the end the perpetrator turns out a completely different person.
CSI: Miami is much better than other crime shows. The basic format may be the same as other shows, but this show uses stories that are entertaining to viewers of all ages.
One week, there could be an explosion at a refinery and the next there could be someone kidnapped by an escaped convict.
You never know what to expect with this show, which is why it is so entertaining.
CSI: Miami is well written, and it is apparent that the writers work hard to keep the story lines fresh to ensure viewers keep coming back.
If you have not seen the show yet, new episodes air on Sundays at 10:00 pm and this season will wrap up in May.
