Trivia

The TV channel Sky Living (UK and Ireland), in later re-runs, as is common with the other UK broadcasters of CSI: Miami and CSI:NY, generally edit certain scenes throughout the entire run to remove many of the visually graphic shots, and certain dialogue - most obvious during crime scene, autopsy, the crime "flashback" and theories, resulting in abrupt dialogue pacing changes, and changes in the music. Also, as with CSI: Miami and CSI:NY, entire episodes have been skipped from broadcast, likely due to the underlying episode story. This is partly due to different broadcast standards of graphic content in the UK, and to enable the series to be re-run in early morning, daytime and early evening timeslots, as the episodes still work with the light edits as investigations.

Goofs

"The CSI Effect": CSIs are not detectives as this is exceedingly rare in real life, as they are actually classed as civilian employees. It is considered an inappropriate and improbable practice to allow CSI personnel to be involved in detective work as it would compromise the impartiality of scientific evidence and would be impracticably time-consuming.

Warrick Brown: Yeah?
Nick Stokes: Yeah, I had Greg run it.

Brilliant
5 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

C.S.I: Crime Scene Investigation is a truly brilliant show that follows a bunch of investigators of murders who find out how the death happened and possibly find out who did it. The show is excellent on many levels. The characters are very cool and well-developed. The storylines are brilliant. Almost every story is perfect and imaginative. I love this show.

Overall the show is excellent and highly recommended. Rating A++.
