5.0 out of 5 stars The Original and the Best, 13 Aug. 2007

This review is from: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Las Vegas - Season 7 Part 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Now in its seventh season and showing no signs of slowing down, the first and the best CSI continues to do what it does best - examine the cases and drip feed the audience information on the characters as it goes along.

Like all the best American dramas - ER, House, Hill Street Blues, Homicide: Life on the Streets - we get to see more of the characters and who they are through their reaction and interaction with the story rather than just clunky expose. And even though we are now seven seasons in and fans are well-versed in the characters, their strengths and weaknesses, there are still titbits to be enjoyed and savoured. After a genuinely shocking (in a good way) 'reveal' at the end of season 6 about the relationship between Grissom and Sara, both the writers and actors seem to be having fun with "moments" between them throughout the season. This has also made it a dream season for all Grissom/Sara 'shippers out there.

As for the cases, it's the usual mundane and spectacular. The perpetrators are rarely sorry when they're caught, the special effects are gruesome and awesome by turn and there's a lovely slow build up with the Minature Killer, leading nicely to the cushion-chewing finale.

Episode 12 introduces us to a new character - Mike Keppler - played with beautiful understatement by the lovely Liev Schreiber. Keppler has come in to cover for Grissom who heads out on sabbatical (to cover for the fact that actor William Petersen headed out onto the stage for a few months). The rest of the team are uncertain about him for a while - he wears a suit and tie for heaven's sake! - and how the relationship develops is for episodes 13 - 24...

If you like your procedural dramas thorough, fun and entertaining, and to be treated as an adult by the writers along the way, they don't make them much better than CSI.
