Q. What are "establishing shots"?

    A. They are aerial photos of places in the real Miami, which the producers drop into the show (usually as a new scene begins) to help create the illusion that the show is filmed in Miami.

    Although quite a few of the scenes in the early first season were actually shot in Miami, most of the show (since the 6th episode) has been filmed in Southern California. And after the first season, they gave up on Miami entirely, and moved all production to L.A. But they still use these aerial "establishing shots" to help set the Miami mood.

    Below is a list of many of these establishing shots, listed in the order in which they appear on the Episode Index page, with descriptions of what the camera is showing us in these scenes, and links to Live Local aerial photo-maps of the actual locations.
