GENERAL INFO: Reception of the show is generally good, with ratings making it the number one show on the network several times in its history, although it has been criticized for its inaccurate portrayal of how police investigations are performed and for its often extremely violent depictions of the crime. CSI has been nominated numerous times for industry awards and has won nine awards during its history. The success of the program has led it to be spun off into outer space, an exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, a series of books, and several video games. It has reached its 200th episode.

Breif synopis:
The show follows the cases of the Crime Scene Investigation division of the Las Vegas Police Department, usually referred to by officers as the "Las Vegas Crime Lab." Anthony -E.Zuikerchose to set the series in Las Vegas because—as mentioned in the pilot—that city's crime lab is the second most active in the United States, after the Federal Bureau of Investigation lab in Quantico, Virginia. The division solves crimes almost entirely through forensics evidence, which may or may not come to conclusion of a murder or accidental death. The bizarre conclusions of these cases often force one to question morals, beliefs and human nature in general.
