An elite team of police forensic evidence investigation experts work their cases in Las Vegas.
Sara has a tendency to become emotionally involved in any case that involves domestic abuse. This stems from her childhood in which her mother killed her father after suffering years of physical abuse. Similarly, Nick tends to become emotionally involved in cases that involve sexual abuse against children. This is due to him being regularly sexually abused by a babysitter as a child.

"The CSI Effect": CSI's and detectives sometimes pick up a weapon with a handkerchief or by inserting a pencil in the barrel. In real life, the handkerchief might contaminate possible DNA evidence, and the pencil would destroy microscopic markings inside the barrel, making it difficult to match the weapon to slugs retrieved from a victim's body or a crime scene. Instead experts recommend holding a weapon in place with gloved fingertips and sliding a thin, stiff sheet of plastic beneath it.
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.
