CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is an innovative, fast-paced drama that follows a crew of forensic investigators on the appropriately named "graveyard" shift at the top non-FBI Forensics lab in the country, located in Las Vegas, as they solve crimes by analyzing evidence with advanced forensic tools. Many of the shows are loosely based on real-life events, police cases, and situations.

The crew is headed by D.B. Russell, the senior investigator and the shift supervisor devoted to finding the truth through the latest forensic methods combined with old-fashioned research and intuition. Alongside Gil is Julie (Finn) Finlay as D.B.'s second-in-comand; Nick Stokes, a self-proclaimed ladies man with an objective to find the wrong-doers; Sara Sidle, the outspoken member who often lets her troubled past get in the way of her job; Greg Sanders, a quirky lab tech (later switching to a field operative); and Morgan Brody, the newest member to the team. The crew works alongside Captain Jim Brass, the former head of the graveyard shift turned captain; and medical examiner Dr. Al Robbins.

This cutting-edge drama recently began its 14th season on the air, and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Main cast that has left during the previous seasons are
Warrick Brown (played by Gary Dourdan), Gil Grissom (played by William Petersen), Dr. Raymond Langston (played by Laurence Fishburne) and Catherine Willows (played by Marg Helgenberger).

This series has two spin-offs:
CSI: Miami and CSI: New York.

Who thought science could be this entertaining?Rating: 4 likes, 1 dislikes

Who thought science could be this entertaining? Not me. Science and I have never gotten along. Usually anything scientific becomes an instant bore-fest for me, but CSI is quite the opposite. The science and different forensic techniques used on the show are way cool and made me more interested in how a case is solved rather than the "whodunit" formula most crime shows follow. Read more

Most watched show on TV?Rating: 1 likes, 2 dislikes

Well is this a good show? I guess it must be since it is the most watched show on television apparently. The reason for that is the fact that it never gets old and there are ALWAYS new ideas. I mean, there's got to be at least 1349382 different ways that a person could be murdered. The characters are good, although there are some that I don't like. I love the way they do the reenactments of the murders to give you a feel for what really happened. Hopefully this show can keep it up. Read more

Wow, Sorry to see her go.Rating: 0 likes, 2 dislikes

I love this show ,I loved it when it came out then and still enjoy it now. Out of all CSI shows on, this one is the best. CSI is about the science and techniques behind the investigations, where as CSI NY is more about the people in the lab and CSI Miami which zips through the science portion as if the director or writers were all jocks.
