Consider a scenario in which you've met someone who's never seen or heard of CSI:Miami before. This person has either been living under a rock, stranded on a desert island or otherwise not in contact with pop culture in any way. If you could choose one episode of CSI:Miami to represent what the show is and means (to you) as a whole, which would you pick? It can be any episode from any season with whichever elements you find represent the show in the best way possible. I'd have to go with 'Witness to Murder' from season two, as it comprises most of the elements that I look for in a crime drama and specifically in CSI:Miami. To start off, there were two cases (for those who don't recall, Eugene and the diamond broker + the young girl who was pushed down the stairs to cover up an affair) which kept the episode strong and utilized all of the characters. It's always great to see a main case as well as a smaller, simpler case to keep the audience engaged and interested. Secondly, there was some heart to the episode, specifically the interaction between Eugene and Horatio. An episode that pulls on the heartstrings tends to make the audience care more about the characters and something that CSI:Miami did well in this case. Finally, this episode didn't have a cliffhanger and could be understood and enjoyed without having to have watched the episodes before or after. Another reason I picked 'Witness to Murder' as opposed to the Pilot or subsequent early series episodes, is because I felt that at this point the show and its characters were pretty well-established and the chemistry was there. It was also well-written, the actors did great with the material and there didn't need to be fancy camera/special effects to get the episode's message across. So for these reasons, I would show 'Witness to Murder' to a first-time watcher. Which episode would you pick and why?
