I LOVE watching CSI. And of course, I’m talking about the original CSI, as in CSI Las Vegas with Grissom only. I refuse to watch any other city/version/cast.
I started watching the show with my dad, when it premiered in 2000. Although I hate everything scary, and some of the show does involve grisly murder and other crimes, I liked seeing the crimes get solved. Soon after the show begun, we had the option of taking a forensic science class at school. I signed up, and we watched a ton of CSI. However, we also got to solve fake crime scenes and we learned a lot about blood spatter (!).
But leave it to me to turn TV into something educational, right? I figure, if I’m going to spend a lot of time doing it, I may as well learn a few lessons:
- One liners are still a hit. At the beginning of every episode, Grissom always has a clever one-liner that sends the show right into its theme song. The lines are kind of corny, yet genius all at once. For example: You can be wrong, I can be wrong but the evidence is just the evidence. #Boom
- Justin Bieber loves CSI, too. In 2010, the Biebs made an appearance on CSI as a CRIMINAL. We always knew he was a bad boy.
- People who get away with stuff must be super smart. I know in real life not every case gets the attention it does on CSI. But still, when a team of scientists is after you and you still get away? You must have done some serious plotting.
- Evidence is basically everywhere. This is kind of what I just said, but it amazes me when they grab so much evidence from a single strand of hair, fingerprints on a steering wheel, or tire marks on a street. I’m innocent, but maybe I should be more careful…
- Even nerds can be hot. This is basically something I already knew, but Nick Stokes (played by George Eads) is fine as hell. Take a look for yourself:
And that is that. FX plays CSI on the regular, sometimes they have marathons on Fridays, and if you’re anything like me, catch a CSI marathon Friday on a day off, and you have yourself one very, very fine day.
