Gil Grissom, and later his replacement D.B. Russell, both have more than passing similarity to Sherlock Holmes. Like Holmes, Grissom is dispassionate with a fierce devotion to logic and little regard for societal norms of behavior; Grissom once smashed mustard jars in a grocery store to illustrate a theory, much as Holmes once practiced spearing a pig in a butchers to determine how strong a man would have to be to transfix a man with a harpoon. Grissom also possess a Moriarty-like nemesis, Paul Millander, whom he pursues in several episodes. Coincidentally, "Paul Millander" has the same initials as "Professor Moriarty." There's also a woman, Lady Heather Kessler, in whom he takes an unusual interest. Their relationship is similar to that of Irene Adler and Holmes. Both Irene and Lady Heather enchant Holmes and Grissom with their beauty, their wit and their resolution. Lady Heather often wears Victorian-style dresses, referencing Holmes's era. Whilst D.B Russell's official character sheet was described as "A west coast Sherlock Holmes who devours crime novels and looks at every crime scene as if it were a story waiting to be told". Both Grissom and Russell work with there CSI Partners Catherine Willows and Julie Finlay, respectively (both the equivalent of John Watson) whilst both working under the Las Vegas Police Department Homicide Captain Jim Brass (the equivalent of Inspector Lestrade).

In the opening credits of Season 1, there is a quick glimpse of someone (probably Warrick Brown) playing blackjack. Three sets of cards are visible - the one in the player's hand, scratching the table (calling for a hit) and two hands immediately to that player's left. Because blackjack is played from the dealer's left to right, the two hands to the player's left have not yet been played, yet the cards are face-down between their respective bets and the dealer. In a real game, the cards would have been dealt on the far side of the chips (toward the player). If the hands were in play, the cards would either be in the player's hand or under the chips (indicating a stand). As it is, the cards would never be in the position they are in. (Even if Warrick were playing all three of the hands, they would be dealt in alternating location - one in front of the chips and the next behind, never two consecutive hands in front of the chips.) Also, one of the hands is laid on the table such that it is partially covering its bet - something the casino would not allow because of the constant surveillance of the players' bets. See more
No victim can ever say we didn't try.
The UK & Ireland's Sky Living, Sky Living HD and Sky Living +1 channels show slightly edited versions of the episodes in their late night-early morning/breakfast time/daytime to remove the more graphic shots, as children may be viewing, as well as certain unsuitable story material for the time slot. Generally, the edits remove certain graphic crime scene/autopsy table/or sometimes dialogue, which are noticeable by strange music score jumps, and badly truncated dialogue pacing. Some entire episodes have been skipped over in these time slots, due to the underlying episode themes.
In late 2016, by comparison, the UK & Ireland's "Alibi" channel ran CSI:NY unedited in a late evening time slot. See more
