Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Miami-set spin-off of the original CSI is just as violent and mature as the original. While the series focuses on solving crimes, scenes of fast cars, bikini-wearing women, and big houses offer a more glamorous backdrop to the search for justice than the original's gritty Las Vegas setting.
Sexuality is always in the background in the form of beach/bikini shots. Also, sex is frequently an element in the crimes being investigated.
Violence can be graphic, gruesome, and unsettling.
Occasional swearing: "ass," "bitch," etc.
Like the Las Vegas-set series that spawned it, this show suggests we live in a dangerous and violent world. But the tropical Miami setting makes it feel slightly more glamorous than gritty. (That said, violence against women is a common theme.) On the plus side, the series reinforces the importance of using teamwork, applied intelligence, and technology to solve complicated cases.
Subtle product placement, usually around technology.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Occasional drug and alcohol use by criminals. Rare alcohol use by main characters.
