ok I got to say this is not for the faint hearted but this show has got the right mix and leaves every other american import in the shade, no other show has outdone er to beat the ratings and seeing this first season you see why. First one sound pilot which sets everything up, you then add Las Vegas & that rocky mountain view(nice-cinmatography)some shocking cases like Blood Drops and the classic unfriendly sky's which makes you think and gives great insight of characters and some lighter moments for the actors! You also get a free science lesson and well those flashbacks! This TV series is as light as it is dark but the actors are superb, the finest cast in ages who really make the show tick! I got to say that both Jorja Fox and George Eads who have great on screen chemistry have both pretty much been round the block Jorja on er & West Wing, George on er & Savannah, however its here they really do get to shine! DVD is even better, nice trailer and cast interviews, CSI goes by the book but it deserves all the credit it gets! Some great highlights in this opening set and the characters just get better and better when they clash! More please!
