CSI TV Series: One of The Best TV Series Ever Produced

Updated on November 10, 2010

CSI TV Series

If you haven't heard of CSI (Crimine Scene Investigation ), you probably have been living under the rocks for ages. CSI is a very popular TV series that has brought the world of forensic science to the pleasure of TV viewers. It has done so much to entertain and inform the public about the work done in crime labs whenever homicide is afoot. The original CSI which made its debut a decade ago has now produced two spin offs and merchandise from the franchise. At the time of this writing, more than 200 countries has broadcasting these series.

The debut show, which also known as CSI: Las Vegas was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Televison and CBS Productions. CSI: Las Vegas received a positive response as soon as the first show was broadcasted. Since then many famous personalities have been made guests on the show and this including Steve Buscemi, Faye Dunaway, Ned Beatty, Frank Gorshin and Kevin Federline.

There was a change of cast on the 9th Season which began in October 2008. Due to personal reasons, William Peterson and Gary Dourdan left the show and hence, new characters were brought in to replace them. The CSI series spin off, CSI: Miami began in 2002 and which the main lead is held by David Caruso. CSI: Miami makes good use of music on its soundtrack and undoubtedly, it was too a highly successful series. The second spin off, New York City version was introduced in 2004 and the star of CSI: NY is Gary Sinise, playing Detective Mac Taylor.

Riding on the success of these CSI series, the producer decided to create some crossover episodes between the three series. Though the shows are self-contained but they also tie in together very well. The crossover episodes have received high rating in rotten tomatoes. The CSI brand recognition is further emphasized by the three signature tunes of the three series. The CSI theme is Who Are You , the Miami show has Won't Get Fooled Again and Baba O'Riley plays in the New York show. All tunes are sung by a British rock back, call The Who .

The audience know these tunes very well and as soon as they hear them, they would expect yet another good storyline with a few twist on the way. For viewers, it's truly a fascinating experience to see how a killer could get caught by leaving fingerprints and/ or other trailing information. By analyzing the blood patterns, investigators would know how the killer and victim were positioned and what kind of weapon was being used. 

Not only that, the scientific community has now recognized the public fascination to forensic science, thanks to the CSI TV series. In 2007, the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry put on an exhibition called CSI: The Experience and which opened up the opportunity for the public to explore the world of the crime lab. Stars from the show was invited and this including the main lead, William Peterson.
