Here is a series that has been a hit for many years. A bunch if investigators are trying to figure out who kill who as they gather the evidence that will tell them who got murdered. Las Vegas Police Department Crime Lab. Vegas may be working to clean up its image and attract family vacationers, but there remains plenty of darkness. Shit happens, Crime is very present in Las Vegas.
Gil Grissom (William Petersen), the logical head of the crime lab. Grissom is more than a boss to the rest of the gang. Captain Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) who runs the crime lab; after a young CSI is killed in the line of duty, Brass goes back to homicide and Grissom becomes the boss. He brings in Sara Sidel (Jorja Fox) to conduct an impartial investigation. Straight-arrow Nick Stokes (George Eads) strikes up an unlikely relationship with a hooker (Krista Allen) whom he busts for robbing her clients; over a number of episodes, her fate threatens Nick’s career as an investigator. Smooth-talking Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan) struggles from a gambling addiction and fights a crooked judge who knows too much about his habit. Ex-stripper Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) fights to keep a balance between her life in the dark world of the crime lab and her private life as a single parent, not easy to raise a child in the world that you see everyday with it full of crimes, trying to protect her from it is an other story.
What I like about it is that they bring characters that have flaws and struggling with life. The characters evolves over the years in a well written script. You will see the tools that they use in order to solve the crime and to present it for the court system. Yes there is technical jargon which they explain. The problem with the series is that now the real CSI have a hard time solving crime because of the show, criminal are watching the show. I could have told them that. The thing is it is never been done like that. This is s huge franchise that made a lot of money for the studio as well as the producers. Entertaining as hell as wells addictive.
