- Jeffrey Robinson at DVD Talk has cast a critical eye over the DVD release of CSI: Miami's second season. Here's an excerpt from his analysis:
CSI: Miami is far from my favorite television series, which was mainly because the content of the first season was not extremely gripping. However, I felt that the second season was a big improvement over the first season. In general, the focus on its main set of characters was developed better and the writing had much more entertaining stories that were easy to follow.
