Storyline

Las Vegas's retired police commissioner Duke Rittle was tortured to death after an 'exclusive' party. The ex-con who drove him is found murdered in the car's trunk, but not the last on Grissom's trail. Rittle's young daughter Sasha is missing and the suspect, a socialite chameleon, is seen on a private flight to Miami. Grissom sends Catherine there. Luckily Horatio takes brilliant charge, realizing it's the MO of a Florida serial killer of socialite couples, who spared the girl but eliminated all other witnesses and clearly isn't done yet, even sets a trap for the police.

Trivia

The CBS network and CSI producers decided to create the spin-off series CSI: Miami (2002) (and later CSI: NY (2004)) because they wanted to beat other potential CSI copycat shows to the punch. See more »

Goofs

When figuring out what the criminal's "fruity scent" is caused from, Grissom tells Katherine that it's because of Diabetic Ketoacetosis, which is treated with Novolin Insulin. This, however, cannot be the case since Ketoacetosis is, in fact, a very debilitating complication that can result from diabetes, which would either require extensive hospitalization or, in less severe cases, a treatment that would last, at most, a single day. Not only that, but Novolin Insulin isn't a specific type of insulin, it's a genetically similar to human insulin created by Squibb-Novo, making it a brand name instead of a treatment, and would, more than likely, be a constant running medication instead of just for the one condition.

Gil Grissom: Doesn't that give you a rash that smells like human excrement? We're looking for something a little sweeter.

CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Cross-Jurisdictions
2 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was primarily a means to introduce the regular audience to the sister show(which would also become a bit enduring hit), CSI Miami and their cast. A decorated ex-chief of detectives is murdered with his own gun, the wife and daughter kidnapped by the killer. This killer is identified as having a peculiar "fruity" sickly-sweet odor, and could be a serial murderer of wealthy couples he comes in contact with. He, along with the mother and daughter as hostage, drives cross country to Miami with Grissom sending Catherine and Warrick to that jurisdiction to help the head CSI, Horatio Caine(the ever cool David Caruso, returning to television, comfortably sliding into his new part), find him. Honey and nine millimeter shell casings, along with blood in urine when the killer stopped to urinate(which led to the little girl getting away, later to be found by Caine)could lead to the man's capture. Catherine and Warrick meet each member of Horatio's team(Emily Procter, Adam Rodriguez, Rory Cochrane, and Khandi Alexander) and we get a sample of certain areas of Miami(along with a bar called Hives which submerges a hot model with honey for a happy audience to sample via fruit from her body)so its really about getting a look at the new cast and their own personalities and quirks. Caruso has a nice scene with the little girl, having found her in a secluded area, and later in the show when he must acknowledge to her that both parents are dead, confessing that he himself also lost a loved one. Caruso and Helgenberger have some interesting scenes together as the obvious "cross-jurisdictional" friction is noticeable. Peterson(Grissom)was vocally displeased about another CSI show, although CSI:Miami was indeed a hit.
