Did You Know?

Trivia

While the majority of the techniques and technologies used in the show are accurate, and true to reality, the writers and crew readily admit that they "time cheat". Tests that take a few seconds on the show, often take several days or weeks in real-life. See more »

Goofs

"The CSI Effect": In many occasions, when arresting a suspect, the team is able to exact a confession but never the Miranda's right are read to the suspect, which can and will be used to render the confession unusable in a court of law. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Just terrific!
24 November 2000 | by AlabamaWorley1971See all my reviews

I've always been fascinated by forensic science, so this was tailor-made for me! It's intelligent and literate, with intriguing stories and lots of cool crime-fighting toys. If you liked MANHUNTER (1986), which also starred William Petersen, you'll enjoy this. High quality TV.
