About The Show
It wasn’t until the last 10 years or so that police had the means to process a crime scene with technology that could get evidence from a simple fiber.
Imagine the thousands of unsolved cases from 20 or 30 years ago that could have benefited from special DNA tests or fingerprint analysis with a specimen taken from the most unusual places. Criminals will soon have nowhere to hide!
CSI follows cases in the Las Vegas area with a group of highly trained (and very good looking) crime scene investigators. Each case, some more unusual and eerie that the others, allows viewers the opportunity to see just how far technology has come over the years.

Gil Grissom: I can’t tell whether he’s brilliant or nuts.
Captain Jim Brass: Sound familiar?
Gil Grissom: A Harvard professor conducted an experiment. Asked a bunch of students to watch a basketball game – count the number of times the ball was passed.
Captain Jim Brass: Yeah? Groundbreaking.
Gil Grissom: During the game a person dressed in a gorilla suit ran across the court. Afterward, the professor asked the students if they noticed the gorilla. Fifty percent responded, “what gorilla?”
Captain Jim Brass: That’s wonderful, Gil. If I see a gorilla, I’ll arrest it.
Catherine Willows: So, any luck with the blood and hair samples I gave you?
Greg Sanders: Don’t insult me. Luck is only for those without skill.
Catherine Willows: Spoken like a man who’s never hit the jackpot.
Greg Sanders: Sad, but true.
Gil Grissom: Did you hear the one about the cop and the monkey who go into a bar?
Catherine Willows: I’m not in the mood.
Gil Grissom: Neither was the monkey.
