TV show description:
This drama follows the cases of the Las Vegas Police Department’s Crime Scene Investigation division (otherwise known as a crime lab).

The division solves crimes almost entirely through the means of forensics evidence and interesting procedures and equipment. The cases are sometimes bizarre and often reflect the series’ unique setting but unlike many other dramas, the show focuses very little on the private lives of the team.

Characters include night shift team supervisor Dr. Gilbert “Gil” Grissom (Peterson), blood spatter analyst Catherine Willows (Helgenberger), audio-video analyst Warrick Brown (Dourdan), hair and fiber analyst Nick Stokes (Eads), materials and element analyst Sara Sidle (Fox), and Homicide Captain Jim Brass (Guilfoyle).

Behind the Scenes

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has spawned two popular CBS spin-offs  — CSI: NY and CSI: Miami.
The 2004-2005 season finale was directed by Quentin Tarantino and attracted over 40 million viewers on May 19, 2005. The episode was entitled “Grave Danger” and focused on the characters frantically searching for co-worker Nick Stokes (Eads) after he had been buried alive in a glass coffin.
Some law officials are said to dislike the program because they believe it gives the public an inaccurate perception of how the police actually solve crimes.
