During the course of the series, 337 episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation aired over 15 seasons.
As it is coming to the end, CSI Las Vegas' earlier seasons with Grissom at the head are the most interesting as they focus on the cases first and personalities second. With Grissom's departure in Season 9, the dynamics changed completely and the series flounders looking for a new lead character. Come back and enjoy the foundation episodes!
I watched this when I was at home in the U.K. But I now live in Cyprus and have to buy DVD's. I enjoy these programs, they are exciting and really lifelike as far as the victims of accidents etc are shown. The actors are very good and I look forwards to getting more DVD'S. I recommend anyone interested in this sort of programme to get one to see how good they are.
classic csi grissom catherine and warwick on top form stiry showing greg getting his field experiance the only thing stopping this getting 5 stars is the episode select option not giving you any scene preview or chapters but would recommend to and csi fan or anybody wanting to catch up on the back storys of the characters
As with the whole series the team solve more crimes which I always find very interesting and this DVD does not disappoint. If you haven't seen the series then I recommend you start with series one and work your way through as I have. It's a really good crime series.
