I came on here to let the world know how bad CSI: Miami is...but the two reviews below said everything I wanted to and more. Ham acting, bad casting, outrageous accents, unlikable characters.
I love the original CSI series, and really can't fault it; I however saw a CSI / CSI: Miami cross over the other day. Catherine and the crew follow a murderer to Miami. The Miami crew managed to bring down the entire episode..not even Grissom, the pillar of respectability could hold the episode together.
I was also surprised at how less orange the episode was, for once it didn’t burn my retinas. The original CSI crew must have demanded that; first and foremost, they're going to wipe all the marmalade off of the camera lenses.
This cross over ep. gave a perfect opportunity to compare the original to Miami. Complex, subtle and interesting, CSI out acted and generally out-did the shallow, plastic Miami.
