Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Murder, and its tale-telling aftermath, is the compelling subject of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Since it premiered on CBS on October 6, 2000, CSI was a ratings triumph, spawning a spinoff (CSI: Miami) and positioning itself for long-term success. As the first season demonstrates, creator Anthony Zuiker's foolproof formula was established early on, bolstered by a fine ensemble cast and requiring minimal tweaking as the season progressed; its Las Vegas-based "criminalists" eventually became "CSI" steeped in the scientific minutiae of forensic investigation, but the series arrived essentially intact, with an irresistible (and seemingly inexhaustible) supply of corpses and the mysteries that surround them. Influenced by the graphic precedent of movies like Seven and Kiss the Girls, CSI matches morbidity with dispassionate methodology; viewers are so fascinated by the investigative process that they're unfazed by intimate autopsies and internal (i.e., digitally animated) views of traumatized flesh, bone, and sinew.

While keeping abreast of cutting-edge technologies, CSI combines the ingenuity (and fallibility) of villains with the appealing humanity of its heroes. CSI director and entomologist Gil Grissom (played by series coproducer William Petersen) is introverted but ethically intense; he's both mentor and moral compass for his night-shift team, including a former stripper-turned-CSI (Marg Helgenberger); a recovering gambler (Gary Dourdan); an eager ace (George Eads) with room for improvement; a workaholic (Jorja Fox) who can't always remain emotionally detached from her cases; and a chief detective (Paul Guilfoyle) who's a necessary link to police procedure. Like The X-Files, CSI supports its characters with feature-film production values, employing a Rashomon structure that turns murder into a progressively accurate study of cause and effect. Script quality is consistently high ("Blood Drops" and "Unfriendly Skies" are exceptional), direction is slick and sophisticated, and the mysteries are complex enough to invite multiple viewings. Despite a regrettable shortage of DVD features, CSI's inaugural season remains addictively worthy of its lofty reputation. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Based on real life Las Vegas crime scene investigators, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION follows the team as they solve chilling cases with innovative thinking and methodical scientific inquiry. Tackling cases peppered with grisly details, the Las Vegas PD Criminalistics Division is the #2 crime lab in the U.S., solving crimes that practically every other crime lab has given up on. Set in a town whose reputation for providing instant success for those willing to try their luck, CSI finds that the constant influx of visitors to the city that never sleeps also provides ripe targets for criminals of all varieties. The show also stars Paul Guilfoyle as Capt. Jim Brass, Robert David Hall as Dr. David Robbins and Eric Szmanda as Greg Sanders.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but.... January 27, 2005
Format:DVD
Although CSI is definitely one of the best shows on television, this dvd is a little bit of a letdown. It's bare bones as far as extras go (which is not taking advantage of the dvd format as far as I'm concerned). There's no subtitles (I'm not deaf, but what if I was?). The price is almost twice as much as any other season of a network television show (most others range from $40-$50). I still think it's a great show, but they could've done a better job. If you really wanna see it, rent it. UPDATE: DO NOT BUY THIS. They are re-releasing this in the coming months with extras and in anamorphic widescreen format (like they did with all the other releases) so SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy the set they should've released to begin with.

5.0 out of 5 stars CSI that's fun to watch! April 23, 2003
Format:DVD
William Petersen & the gang make the original C.S.I an engaging way to spend the evening. Many of the stories are well written,directed and acted. Some of my favorite eppies from the first season are Crate & Burial, I-15 Murders and Farenheit 932.
William Petersen really makes his role as Gil Grissom convincing and draws us in with his infectious interest and love of the job that just doesn't seem to be there in the Miami C.S.I spinoff.. I got into the show about 2nd Season, got the Season One DVD with the desire to play catch-up and got my husband (who originally wasn't a fan) totally hooked watching it with me! I'm really looking forward to when the 2nd Season set becomes available.
If you're into C.S.I this is a fun,engaging show.. Great stories, great acting.. graphics that grab you and pull you right in.. Well worth it and a keeper..
Only downside, I found was that I wish there could have been some kind of director/producer commentary included. My husband's one complaint was that the C.S.I. profiles wasn't featured on the first disc instead of the last one. By the time you get to the last disc, you already know the characters and their foibles. Still, well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, very human drama. Buy It. January 21, 2006
Format:DVD
The original `CSI' set in Las Vegas and its spin-offs, all done in the Jerry Bruckheimer shop, easily deserve all the popularity they have garnered since they first appeared five seasons ago. The point of this essay and review is to ponder the source of their quality and resulting popularity.

In some ways, as the precursor to some other high quality shows such as `Numbers' and `House, M.D', `CSI' has dealt and played the `Sherlock Holmes' card to the hilt, spicing their stories with whodunit puzzles which would have taxed even that most marvelous of scientific detectives. Both Holmes and `CSI' dealt not only with puzzles, but with puzzles solvable by scientific methods.

I am not sure if this is a source of the show's popularity, but I can attest, as a former analytical chemist, that virtually all of their scientific techniques, and the way they show them, are dead on accurate. Sometimes, there is a bit of sloppiness, as when one of the supporting scientists back at the lab is a bit too fast on the draw with an automatic micropipette, and mananges to draw up about as much air as they do sample, but otherwise, they push the envelope very little at the edge of modern forensic and chemical science.

I suspect that next to the interesting puzzles, the biggest interest in `CSI' lies in the accuracy of the relations between the CSI team members. In contrast, I offer the opinion that `NCIS', an almost direct copy of `CSI' is really a very weak shadow of it's paradigm in that the relations between the team members are comic book images of how real knowledge based law enforcement officers would act toward one another.

`NCIS' may offer the argument that they are much more action based than is `CSI'.

Does it have Spanish subtitles?
Well, it would have been nice were the info correct. I now have a copy, and for the record this offers both Spanish and English audio, but zero subtitles. So, a multi-lingual household will have a tough time finding that sweet spot.
