Goofs

When the CSI's and detectives are interviewing someone or working a crime scene, they are never seen taking notes or sketching the crime scene. Real CSI's and detectives are constantly taking notes and sketching. The notes and sketches are so important that they are occasionally booked into evidence to ensure the originals will be available for review before trial. See more »

Brilliant
5 June 2002 | by SMLA11See 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++.
