Did You Know?


In the nearly ten years of the series, the opening credits' (pilot epsiode) scene of Grissom's experiment dummy-being bludgeoned in the back of the head-has always been shown. See more »


Brown is suspended for dereliction of duty for leaving Gribbs alone at a crime scene. Grissom did the exact same thing earlier. Grissom was more negligent since he was a senior officer, and unlike the robbery there was no officer at the liquor store, whose owner also pulled a gun on Gribbs. Grissom would have faced similar discipline. See more »

My view of the series in general
31 July 2013 | by (Porirua, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Utterly and unashamedly love this programme in all it's entirety.It has made me realize that many factors come into play in order to see justice is done. This programme has opened the door for many successful spin offs which needless to say, I also thoroughly enjoy. Adhereing to the same guidelines which made C.S.I such a hit will also ensure their continuity, fan base and success. The story lines, plots and cliffhanger series finales are mind-blowing to say the least. Thank you very much to the cast and crew for making this all so enjoyable and entertaining. I miss Grissom and Catherine as they were the leading forces for the C.S.I. teams. I wish them both well on their new endeavors.
