When Delco shows the fingerprint he took off of the phone, it is complete with no voids. The print was taken from over the microphone hole and should have had a prominent void in the center. See more »

The acting, especially Caruso, is supposed to be blatantly over the top..
28 February 2016 | by hype-47291See all my reviews

After seeing the complaints about bad acting, I can only say, after watching this for a while, that the acting, especially David Caruso's character is SUPPOSED to be a parody! It seems like people don't get that. The on and off with the glasses, every shot with him standing sideways with his head down facing the camera, the glib comments... This show isn't supposed to be actual GOOD acting. It's an over the top stereotype... And supposed to be humorous. It is completely unrealistic, just a quick example: all the women running around on duty in 4" heels... Hysterical! I remember particularly, an episode with the M.E. In at least 4" heels walking on the sand on the beach and over to examine a body. Calleigh is also running after suspects in 4" heels. My conclusion, and that of many people I've spoken to who watch the show also believe much of it to be a parody... Puposely written to be kitschy. The visuals are pretty good... The colorful views of Miami and the ocean. I don't believe that this show was ever meant to be taken seriously, (compared to, say, Law and Order). I can see if someone only saw one or two episodes how someone would think the acting is terrible, however after watching this for quite a while and seeing each character's "signature style and movement", this was written not to be taken seriously at all. So for those who believe it to be bad acting, well, the show was written with that type of intention.. For it to be over the top stereotypical and a parody.
