Having successfully premiered as an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (Season 2: "Cross-Jurisdictions"), CSI: Miami begins its inaugural season with the investigation of a spectacular plane crash ("Golden Parachute"). Horatio Caine and his team of skilled investigators take to the streets, beaches, and swamps of Miami with a sweet Humvee and the ability to arrest their suspects (a power their Vegas counterparts do not possess). They have their work cut out for them this season with many difficult cases to solve including the deaths of a priest ("Ashes to Ashes"), a male stripper ("Breathless"), and nearly an entire family ("Slaughterhouse"). One of the cases involves the death a little girl at a children's play center ("Broken"). There's plenty of action in "Dispo Day," which features a violent shootout. By the end of the season we learn plenty about the personal life of Horatio and the story of his brother Ray ("Simple Man" / "Freaks & Tweaks"). The Horatio/Ray storyline is a continuing thread through the first few seasons.
