An elite team of police forensic evidence investigation experts work their cases in Las Vegas.
While the majority of the techniques and technologies used in the show are accurate, and true to reality, the writers and crew readily admit that they "time cheat". Tests that take a few seconds on the show, often take several days or weeks in real-life.
Captain Jim Brass:
Newsflash. You can't make a deal if you keep your mouth shut.
In a number of episodes people are shown eating and drinking in the laboratories. For instance, in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Ms. Willows Regrets (2012) Nick and Greg are seen eating fried chicken in the lab, and in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Overload (2001) Sara eats a sandwich while watching Grissom experiment with her deli pickle. There are other examples. No reputable laboratory (which this is supposed to be) would allow its staff to eat or drink while in the lab. It is basic scientific protocol to prevent contamination of samples or the person picking up toxins on their food.
Due to rights issues at the time of release, the R2 (Europe/UK) and R4 (Australia) DVD releases of Season 1 have The Who music replaced by an original theme from John M. Keane. The Who are still credited in the closing credits.
