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.
