CSI stands for "Crime Scene Investigation," which as the name implies are a group of individuals, usually forensic scientists, within a police force who examine and process a crime scene and the evidence found there. It is also a show on CBS with reruns on SpikeTV. There are three forms of the show: CSI, CSI: Miami, and CSI: New York. Many claim that CSI is CBS's stylized response to the show Law & Order on NBC. However, the television show is just a glamorized, more "viewer friendly" view of the real CSI job.
(Taken from www.vgcats.com) "In the normal world, CSI, or Crime Scene Investigators, collect and analyze information on a crime. Their findings are then passed on to the detectives and other authorities as the criminal case makes its way down the system. However, in TV, show the CSI investigators take on nearly all aspects of the case. Even arresting and interviewig suspects. Making them some sort of Judge Dredd enforcement officer. A complete package of Judge, Jury, and Executer."
Although I like CSI and Law & Order, I personally prefer Law & Order because it's more realistic. Also, since I'm pre-law, I was upset with the court scenes on CSI.

The original "Crime Scene Investigation" TV show that spawned a host of other official and unofficial similar series... including House.

Purportrated to be as realistic as possible, using actual procedures in the field and actual equipment in the lab. And I heard that they often base their stories on real events.

But the problem with the show as a "Who done it" is that the writers are always trying to shock their viewers as to who the killer actually is.

Knowing this going in produces the opposite effect and makes the show as predictable as Scooby Doo. For example, one of their favorite things to do is having children: teenagers, pre-teens, and sometimes even toddlers be the killer.

Some cast members:

Gil Grissom: The head of the team and a bug expert. Likes roller coasters.

Catherine Willows: Second in command and ex-stripper. Has a mob boss as a Father.

Warrick Brown: An ex-gambling addict who always looks like he's in pain.

Nick Stokes: Used to have a penchant for the ladies, but they kind of low-keyed that when the actor started losing his looks.

Sara Sidle: Advocate for abused women. I think the main reason she's there is because her name sounds like "suicidal".
ME: Whatcha' watching?
GF: CSI. I think the Father killed his wife.
ME: Father? They have a kid?
GF: Yeah, an adorable 10 year old girl.
ME: Oh... well it wasn't the Father. It was the little girl.

TV show with hands down, THE BEST theme songs ever. A producer or someone high up there at CBS must like The Who a lot.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Who Are You

CSI: Miami: We Won't Get Fooled Again

CSI: New York: Baba O'Riley.

what more do you need?

In the real world, CSI or crime scene investigators, gather and analyze crime scene evidence and hand it over to the detectives and other proper authorities, but in the tv show, they take on all the aspects of a case, even interrogating and arresting suspects.
Last night on csi, some guy got murdered and the csi team found and convicted the criminal.

Yeah, some people think it's cheezey, but when you really think that people really do this stuff and the technolege that puts them away... you've got to hand it to the directers and writers they do a heck of a good job!
