Dramatizing the high-tech sleuthing we first saw on A&E's Cold Case Files, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation takes the relative minutiae of forensic science and fleshes them out to great effect. William Petersen (The Contender) stars as Officer Gil Grissom, the forensics guru of the Las Vegas CSI team whose fluency in hair follicles, bullet trajectories, and entry wounds helps the city solve some of its more confounding crimes. Peterson is joined by a solid ensemble cast (including two-time Golden Globe nominee Marg Helgenberger) that effectively creates an atmosphere where interdepartmental zeal for solving cases is de rigeur. There are, to be sure, clichéd aspects of CSI. Peterson, however, does a yeoman job as the forensics-obsessed Grissom, and his portrayal brings an uncommon depth and texture that enables CSI to stay afloat in a sea of otherwise boilerplate cop shows. This six-disc set includes all 23 episodes of CSI's debut season, plus a supplemental music video and the featurette "People Lie...but the Evidence Never Does."

I just started watching CSI about 6 months ago, so you can imagine how behind I felt despite watching every new show and rerun I could find on TV! I was so excited to see that the first season had been released on DVD. So I rented it off Netflix and spent 17 hours getting caught up. It was so good, that I definately plan on buying it now. I had missed so much! CSI rocks! I am dying for them to release season 2 on DVD now!

I have been watching CSI for who knows how long. I never miss an episode and I love the show. Sara Sidel is my favorite person on the show and that's not just because she might be related to me. Well, anyways, my birthday's coming up in less than a month and the #1 thing I want is season 1 on DVD!!!!!!!!!!! I really hope I get it for my birthday and I would watch it ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never missed an episode of CSI, and I only missed the first 5 episodes of CSI Miami. CSI is the greatest criminology drama ever since Robert Stack did anything. It combines personality, situational and season long drama, science, humor, and a little bit of pure adrenaline and exotic scenery make CSI a recepie for success. Of course, nothing is better than the debut season. I remeber 3 years ago when I first saw the show when I was 10. I thought it was great, being a scientist myself, and was instantly hooked. CSI has everything, and you gotta see this DVD!

CSI has to be the best show on TV these days. I love having the first season on DVD so I can watch it when ever I want. I can hardly wait for the season 2 to be released Sept 2, 2003. I have been hooked to this show since the first time I saw. I love the cast and and I try to never miss an episode. The first season is great and I have learned a lot from this show.

I did not leave my room till I watched the first two DVD'd. I saw all the episodes that I had missed. The lack of commercials is wonderful. I highly recommend this most excellant DVD collection.

I love forensics and plan on going to school to become a medical examiner. My friend told me to watch this show but I said that it couldn't possibly portray criminalistics accurately. I was VERY wrong! I was suprised to see that everything I learned in last semester's forensics class was used and continuously referenced to. It is a great show, in fact, I have already purchased season 1 and season 2 and am anxiously awaiting the release of season 3.

The DVD series puts the exclamation point on the statement that CSI is the best TV series around. The DVDs have made the only improvement possible, eliminating the commercials.

Being an avid CSI fan and a lover of the "original", I have begun my collection of all the seasons of this wonderful show.....Now I can enjoy Grissom, Sarah, and Warrick to my heart's content...I was not at all disappointed with the quality of this set of DVD's and have already watched them twice myself and loaned them to a friend, who is now saving to order her own set....looking forward to owning all the seasons...it is a great buy for me

I started watching CSI reruns on a cable channel and got hooked. I hadn't watched the show when it first came out and wanted to make sure I saw this from the beginning. Grissom is one of my favorite characters. He is excellent as always. Now that he is gone from CSI I had to watch more episodes with him in it. These are action packed episodes. I watched this whole season within a week and then my teenage son watched them within a couple of days. This set is worth watching.
