CSI: MIAMI is the action crime show of the CSI franchise while CSI is the mystery drama.  CSI: MIAMI has more action and a different style of editing.   The crimes happen in the day more in Miami.  Season 7 starts with how Lt. Horatio Caine has cheated death.  Then it explores the characters of the CSI team as Ryan Wolfe takes on a gambling debt (to save a father and son), and a romantic relationship develops between Eric Delko and Calliegh.   They all face consequences of their actions as the Russians decide to target them.   I still love CSI more and I feel CSI: MIAMI is losing a little steam as CSI continues to go strong into the 10th season (as CSI: MIAMI might be a little promising with the unique season eight flashback opener).   Some fans of CSI have issues with David Caruso’s posing and sunglass look of Horaito Caine.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Audio commentaries for WRECKING CREW and GONE BABY GONE

 

Featurettes-

MIAMI CLASSIFIED- a pop-up fact track for WRECKING CREW

THE MIAMI SOUND MACHINE- a half hour look at recording sound for CSI: MIAMI from production to post-production to ADR and sound effects.

THE NEW AV LAB- The AV lab for the CSI team is created through actors acting against nothing and digital effects work to bring the AV screens and the portable Hummer lab screens to life.

CSI: MIAMI- HEATING UP SEASON 7- a look at character development in season 7

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:   CSI: MIAMI season 7 has its moments, but it’s not as strong as the original CSI series.
