The 'lesser cousin' of CSI for many reasons. They are hinting on viewers, but thankfully, CSI NY and Miami are in some ways, not as gruesome as Vegas (Original) Plus, For some reason, all of the bodies are typically found in daylight, in places besides dark closets and alleyways, so not as creepy. But for some reason, this show likes killing off its main and recurring characters.... Even more so than the other CSIs. Sometimes the Vics live, (not all in the episode, there is typically at least one fatality) but sometimes, they are brutally murdered. Sometimes (not as brutally) they are murdured in front of your eyes. Not for the squeamish, but otherwise a great show.
