CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is a show that I will never miss if I can help it.
It's great to watch the mechanisms used to solve the crime, they're thorough, delicate and interesting...I very rarely care whodunnit.
Unlike 'Miami', the original CSI does not rely on Mexican drug lords or bikinied women to draw your interest. The character's are especially complex and very likable..Grissom in particular is an unquestionable genius, and a joy to observe.
Each episode has greater production values than a small country...the special effects and quality of writing make the spend worthwhile. CSI is the pinnacle of the crime drama genre and TV in general.
