    I know you'd join Dorka.
    Like that.

    I have LV S1-4 and Miami S1-2 on DVD.
    I like LV the most cuz they all have great chemistry there and the show reveals human nature.
    I wanna do the forensics, too. Anthropology, like Terry in LV (although I don't like the actress bc of what she did in Pretender).
    My fave charas are Gil and Cath (a proud shipper, too).
    And I like Brass because 'A bullet runs through it' is just so emotional and he did a great job.

    What are your fave eps?

    "The act itself never varies. But each kiss carries with it a meaning all its own. It can convey a husband's eternal devotion... Or a wife's enormous regret... It can symbolize a mother's growing concern... Or a lover's growing passion... But whatever its meaning, each kiss reflects a basic human need; the need to connect to another human being. This desire is so strong it's always amazing when some people donít understand it." Desperate Housewives, "One more kiss"

    Have to say the German voices are okay. All of them.
    Like Miami bc it's damn funny. Especially Alexx who's talking to dead people.
    And I like it cuz of the hot guys.




    But my fave is still LV.
    Has the best episodes. "Gum Drops" is just awsome bc of the little girl with the half cut thraot whispering in the background all the time.

    Heee. Love CSI - all three of them. Though Horatio's personality (Miami) has done a complete U-turn during season 3, and I don't really like him anymore.

    Sara/Catherine, Horatio/Calleigh, Stella/Aiden. Them's me ships. Aside from the last one, but I love those two working together. I'm Mac/Stella there.

    Oh, that reminds me... the UK haven't started season 6 of Vegas, 4 of Miami or 2 of NY yet, though I know about Aiden, so would anybody mind using spoiler tags, please? Thanks, people. *hugs all*

    My favourite overall character has to be Stella.

    Oh!! I haven't seen this topic before!

    My favourite is definitely CSI Las Vegas! Then come New-York and last but not least Miami.
    Favourite characters? Catherine in LV, Horatio in Miami and Stella in NY.
    Favourite ships: Cath/Gil, Stella/Mac and I don't have one in Miami though if I had to choose one it would be Horatio/Yelina.

    I'm with Trialia on spoiler tags. I stopped at the end of LV season 5, early Miami season 3 and I'm in NY season 1 right now (last ep saw is the one with the dog competition).

    Good way to look at it. When CSI started gaining popularity many colleges around the country noticed a surge in students focusing on forensic science. CSI has done well in showing another aspect of criminal investigation but, like all shows, the inaccuracies are there for the sake of the story.

    In the majority of episodes most of the science is in fact real and done properly. The two issues with reality are in the technology they have and the actual job they do. AFIS and CODUS lookups are not instant; it can take hours or days to get a fingerprint match and weeks for DNA results to arrive. They also don't have databases of perfume chemistry or automotive paint. Stuff like that simply doesn't exist.

    The biggest inaccuracy, however, is the fact that the main characters are far more than just crime scene analysts. In real life CSAs don't talk to suspects, they don't canvas neighborhoods, they usually don't even examine the evidence. Detectives perform arrests and interrogations, lab technicians actually examine the evidence. Crime scene analysts/investigators focus strictly on the actual crime scene. It's a good show but anyone with time in urban law enforcement can't ignore bits like that.

    It's a great show, however. I really enjoy it and I've actually learned a thing or two. The only times they get stuff blatantly wrong is when they do episodes about fires; to date no dramatic television show has done fire investigation properly. It's far too complex of a subject to get right for a TV show.

    Oh, and don't forget the frequent civil rights violations. At least every other episode I see an action by one or two of the characters that would undoubtedly result in the case being thrown out of court for violations of due process. Then of course there's the "CSI effect" in real courtrooms throughout the nation...but that's the fault of the ignorant judges, lawyers, and juries out there who can't accept the fact that it's just a tv show.

    That's actually part of what bugs me... when people whine about how CSI is so unrealistic, et cetera. I even found a published subtly-sniping reference in a book by someone who used to be a favourite author of mine.

    Hello, how dumb do people think the viewers are? Not everyone is stupid enough to believe it's more than a TV show and it's all realistic, damn it. Of course things like that couldn't happen so quickly, to begin with!

    What really pissed me off was when a few weeks ago a french tv program published an article in which a french journalist criticized CSI 'cos the show help criminals to escape more easily. *shakes head*

    And guess what? French TV is producing a new series based on CSI (which is not that bad btw given they don't have the same budget).

    *shakes head*

    True, though it is nice to know that most of the science behind what they show is in fact real.

    Actually that's not so far-fetched. Some clever criminals have been learning from the show, learning to leave clean crime scenes, to wipe prints and to leave as little trace as possible. Fortunately it's practically impossible to remove all trace; thank Locard's Exchange Principle for that one.

    I'm all for CSI: the original. It's the best by far. My favorite character is Nick Stokes. Definitely easy on the ol' eyes.

    I agree on the conversation about the 'reality factor'. It's a TV show and it's entertainment. I'm really interested in forensics, too (wanna do it for a living later) and imo it's intersting to see how they deal with science. Actually there are real criminalists producing the show and if you watch specials/behind the scenes material they always mention that it's different in reality (especially the time aspect).
    Imo they do a great job in creating interesting stories, full of tension and surprise. But the thing I love best about the show is its characters. THIS is what I call chara background and development. They show emotions, they *feel* real. Take Nick, he's so protective of children bc he himself was the victem of sexual abuse as a child and I totally love S6 ep Gum Drops
    Spoiler:
    where he desperately tries to find this little girl and everytime he's in the house you can hear the small girl whisper the story of what happened to her family

    My abs fave chara is Gris bc I love his thoughts about people, about mankind and religion.

    When you get to college take some basic criminal justice courses, starting with Principles of Criminal Investigation. It's basically CSI 101. You'll learn the basics of investigating a crime and what your particular role would be. Remember, there are Evidence Technicians, there are crime lab technicians (which rarely ever leave the lab), there are CSIs and there are Detectives. The first two are typically civilians, the latter two (which can often be the same person as many Detectives do perform the duties that we see on the show but without the actual up close examinations) are sworn peace officers.

    It's a fascinating field and just about any field of study, from accounting to entomology to psychology to mathematics can be used in conjunction with forensics. Just remember that a good criminal investigator is an expert at everything else first. A good CI/detective knows how long a particular bug takes to attack a corpse, how much pressure per square inch it takes to crumple a highway guard rail, what the hottest shoe on the market is, what the Dow and S&P closed at, how subway systems work, etc etc etc. You have to know everything because anything can be linked to a crime.

    Pretty cool, thx! Love the part about the shoes.
    Well, the problem is I live in Germany and here is no forensic course at all. I study biology and wanna do anthropology later. Will see. For no I enjoy the show.

    Then enjoy! S6 is great. Watch out for 'GumDrops' (ep 3 or 4) and ep 11 'Werewolves', they are amazing.

    Yes, proud Final Fantasy fan, owing all games.
