It always starts with some weird ass crime, then an awesome theme song. After commericals we usually dwelve straight into the crime that was at the top of the show, and another one, so that all the CSI workers are watched. They get closer and closer to the actually person who committed the crime (but they don't always solve it), and we get to look into the psyche of the killer, or the details of how the accident actually happened. This is an awesome show! Whoever says otherwise is obviously NOT into this kind of stuff. But for those of us who are junkies, I find it hard to wait for Thursday night to roll around.
I am a big fan of C.S.I., because the storylines are well-written, the information is well-presented, and the characters are believable as well as fun to watch. I have learned a lot of crime scene investigation from watching the show, and I'm sure a lot of others have as well. Keep up the good work!
CSI is a show which relies on the individual plots of each episode over character development. While this can work in some situations (such as the wonderful Law and Order...well, the original series that is) in the case of CSI its like a bottle of Sprite that's been open for too long - the whole show is flat. It has no fizz, it has no substance...its just...there. I'll admit the murders can be intriguing, but the dialogue, character development and plot lines just fail to compel me. Although this reviewer seems to be in the minority, I see no compelling reason to watch this show from week to week, or the reasons behind its popularity.
This is an excellent show. It's full of special effects and weird music that helps this show stick out from the rest. But this isn't as boring as your typical crime investigation show on the Discovery Channel, because for one its fiction and another it actually looks at the CSIs and their lives, what they deal with, and their ways of thinking. Excellent show, and the People's Favorite Drama (2003).
This is a tremendous series! Just brilliant, and thank the heavens above for no melodramatic tendencies of other horrific series like ER, etc. If I want a soap opera I will watch one thanks. This series is as close to perfection as a TV series can get. The mood, the dialogue, the acting is SUPERB, and even Time Magazine called this one of the best on TV. Why this show isn't on everyone's list, or promoted to pieces by CBS is beyond me? I wait for it every week, and just cannot get enough of this fast paced, exciting show that has my family and I talking as if we were involved in the program as to what this means and what that means, and how to solve the crime. There is enough humanity in the characters to keep it touching, but not too much. A fine balance is walked in each show. Petersen is brilliant and perfect in this role. I am in love with his presence on TV. Just an imposing presence as well as a great supporting cast. I can finally say, I find no fault with a TV show. I never thought that would happen. The direction, casting, dialogue just rocks. I am thankful TV is finally good for something besides the History, Discovery, Biography and the Learning channels. This show is amazing. I am an addicted forever. Will definitely watch the spin-off in Miami, David Caruso is perfect for it. Finally, something to watch that doesn't make me ill. AAAA+++
CSI is simply a show that's fun to watch. The investigators use actual forensic techniques (I think), so it is not just entertaining, but informative. Also, the investigators feel like real people, without overly dramatic lives and with actual personalities.
I love this program...Great characters; interesting plots. The only problem I have was when a physio friend pointed out that they all should know all the bones in the human body as the vast majority of their cases would deal with bones. I realise that they bring in a person that knows more about bones than them to provide romantic interest for Grisham but come on! A scientist that deals with bones all the time mixing up a foot and a hand bone. No way!
great idea, really poorly executed. almost every moment is treated as if THE defining, earth-shattering moment, with long, lingering close-ups accompanied by ominous music. flirting seems forced. dialogue tries to pass as slick. very attractive cast & great production values.
William Peterson was great and now that he is gone the show has really fallen off from the once great heights it used to be at. CSI was the best show on television early on in the show's run, like seasons 2-4 it peaked with great episodes every week and huge ratings. The performances were all great but Peterson carried the show and if he's really gone for good I think the show will suffer and eventually just die off. Maybe it would be suffering anyone just because that is naturally what happens with shows they last a few years and no matter how good they are they just get old or stale or people get bored of them for whatever reason. NYPD blue would be a good example of that too, another good show that just got boring.

Crime Scene Investigation came out in 2000 and became a hit. It's
original and graphic at times, but does show that violent crimes scenes
can be gruesome and graphic.
The show in it's early years were very good, while the show is still good it's starting to jump the shark in my opinion. This all started with Jorja Fox leaving the show. Once she left the show started to slip in quality and the show at times becomes increasingly stupid.
The story arcs for the show are quite good. I'm not usually crazy for story arcs that span multiple seasons as it takes way to long to come to a resolution and if someone didn't watch a previous episode in the arc, the person may miss something important.
While it's still a good show and good to watch the show is starting to slip story wise.
