A fun episode, with of course a very horrible side. Always when Catherine investigates a case involving a child, the episode rule!!! And it's fun to see them in Miami, with the Miami cast!!!

Excellent casting for the future series CSI: Miami. Rory Cochrane and Emily Procter will make the new series a huge hit!

This was an absoultly amazing episode, with the whole mixing of CSI and CSI:Miami! I've watched it three times in just a week, and I think it was a great way to introduce CSI:Miami! Great!

A perfect way to begin a hit show! Great chemistry between all of the cast members of the two shows. I've been hooked on CSI Miami ever since this aired. I felt a little cheated that I didn't get to see Horatio and Grissom interact though.

Hmm I have problems with the blonde Miami womans credibility as a CSI- don´t remember her name- (why would she wear her extremely long hair out at a crime scene for ex). Otherwise ok episode.

This is a great episode, also a great pilot.. But I would love to see Grissom vs. Caine instead of Cath (sorry Cathrine fans)

the plot line was interesting and I liked how they used this for the spin off for miami, but the Miami CSI's bugged me. I found that they had no emotion and that the girl was almost robotic with no emotion towards anyone or thing. Personally, I find CSI L

This was a great episode, I took a point off though because I agree w/ cory6 about Grissom and Horatio interacting. David Caruso wwas sooooo great in that episode, though. This episode was an awesome spin-off for CSI: Miami

I must be one of the only people here who absolutely cannot stand David Caruso, and I saw this episode as unfortunate in that in order to watch even the Vegas CSI I had to endure his endless posing and arrogant remarks. However, he did deliver one of t

Well done episode, I was glad that the show's plot could turn them to the show's first spin off without it seeming corny. For some reason when Catharine and Haratio are in the limo together I was half expecting them to go at it like wild animals in the ba

i liked this one because for once there not actually in Vegas but i don't like Miami that much....what was Horatio talking about in the end where he lost someone????

Don't like anything about CSI: Miami. But really like the interactions between Cath and Horatio. But then again Cath has great chemistry with every guy on the show! She could hook up with them all. And Gris and Horatio pairing off would so not have wo

Fairly good eppi. Loved Cath and Horatio and the chemistry between them. Great way to introduce the miami series.I watch some CSI:miami eppi's but not all of them as i am mainly into the original CSI,one reason:the character's are more funny in original C

I dislike another CSI, There must only be one..ONE....Good plot though

I love this episode. I wasn't a very big fan of Miami until I saw this one. I really like Horatio now. It was such a good pilot episode. 'One of us has to go...why you don't you take Warrick? He's never been to Florida'

I liked how CSI Miami and our CSI came together. But I feel that Horatio and Grissom should have teamed up, I mean come on, they would have solved it in half the time!! I also liked how when Horatio and Cat where in the bar place, they called eachother na
