Synopsis


The first season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was inaugurated with a shakeup in the Las Vegas crime-lab unit, with overnight-shift supervisor Gil Grissom (William L. Petersen) appointed head of the unit after former skipper, Capt. Jim Brass, made a misfired decision that brought about the death of rookie "criminalist" Holly Gribbs (Chandra West). New team member Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) was brought in from San Francisco to aid in the investigation of Gribbs' death, causing friction between Grissom and his second-in-command, Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger). Meanwhile, the friendly rivalry between team members Warrick Brown (Gary Dourdan) and Nick Stokes (George Eads), both of whom were jockeying for a promotion, served to accelerate the solutions of many of the crimes depicted therein. Although the team was generally successful in bringing perps to justice, at least one case remained frustratingly unsolved: a string of murders made to look like suicides, clearly committed by a "signature" killer with an intimate knowledge of forensic procedure. As season one drew to a close, Grissom wondered if he would ever catch up with this elusive murderer, whose deliberately planted false clues resulted in far too many wild goose chases for the team -- and whose equally deliberate real clues proved that the team was up against some sort of homicidal genius. ~ Hal Erickson

    The First Great Forensics Show

    CSI was the first and best of the Crime Scene Investigation shows. The first season introduced us to Grissom, Katherine, Sarah, Warick and Nick, plus other great characters. The different storylines were interesting and unusual. Season one is a great start to a intriquing and well acted series.

    The first season of CSI is awesome, there are some great episodes that let viewers get to know Grissom, Catherine, Warrick, Nick, and Sara better. I reccomend everyone watch CSI and begin it with the first season.

    This is a great start to the series. It seems as though all the characters are adjusting to and trying to get comfortable with their character, but the cast is great and the story lines are riveting.

    I watched this show from the start and was sad to see it end, even after 15 seasons. the stories were excellent and different from anything on TV at the time. But as good as the show was I always missed Grissom after William Peterson left. so I bought the first season with the original cast.

    Very good, but these older shows were not high def and so there is an incompatibility concern as the show appears somewhat less than clear but still get the full effect of the original.
