Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })CSI (full title CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, sometimes unofficially referred to as CSI: Las Vegas when differentiating the shows in the franchise, mostly abroad where CSI: Miami made the franchise popular) is a highly successful TV show (2000-2015) about a group of graveyard-shift crime scene investigators in Las Vegas led originally by enigmatic scientist Gil Grissom, then, following his departure, by ex-stripper and single mother Catherine Willows, and finally, by quirky scientist DB Russell.Initially touted as a show where the evidence was the main character and the actual characters were little more than flat stereotypes with "quirks" added almost as an afterthought, the series progressed over its thirteen seasons to make the characters a little more rounded and include more of their personal lives and histories in the story lines. It also moved on from a fairly straightforward forensics approach to more high-tech approaches that aren't necessarily possible in real life, requiring some degree of suspension of disbelief from the viewer. CSI runs into the Road of Trials (Part of Hero's Journey) many time throughout the series. CSI as a forensic/mystery show continued for many years, holding on very strongly and getting more interesting with time.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The series influenced a great many subsequent programs. Most directly, it inspired its producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, to try and replicate this success with Without a Trace and Cold Case (both in the same verse). It also followed in Law & Order's "franchise" footsteps, with CSI: Miami (Yeeeeeeeaaaahh!), CSI: NY and CSI: Cyber. There are 797 total episodes of CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, and CSI: Cyber, not including books, comic books, and video games related to the franchise. Please note, however, that it is not the oldest of the current crop of forensic shows, a title held by British show Silent Witness.Gil Grissom's frequent one-liners right before the opening credits or an ad break are a well known example of a Quip to Black, although Horatio Caine's versions are perhaps the best known - mostly due to the heaping layer of cheese added to them. Pretty much established the Necro Cam, which it uses as a device to re-enact for the viewers every single gruesome detail that can be extracted from a crime scene, and every theory it spawns.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The uncanny effectiveness of the show's Applied Phlebotinum has caused some to suspect that it's not actually set in the present day, but, rather, 20 Minutes into the Future (on-screen dates, though, put it in the Present Day).The show (and its spinoffs) have given rise to what legal professionals call "The CSI Effect": the necessity of compressing what would normally be months worth of delicate and time-consuming lab work into a 40-minute television episode causes similarly unrealistic expectations in potential real-world jurors. As a result, the uninformed juror will assume that what they see on the show is happening as it actually occurs, as opposed to being fabricated and accelerated for television. It's also sometimes created difficulties in crime-fighting, since the show shining the limelight on forensic techniques (aforementioned Artistic License notwithstanding) has prompted higher-end criminals to take steps to minimize what forensic evidence they leave behind (e.g. wearing gloves to avoid fingerprints).The show aired a total of 15 seasons before being cancelled in May 2015. A two-hour movie to conclude the show's run aired on September 27, 2015, which brought back original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.

Limited Advancement Opportunities
 CSI / int_1042bae6
comment
Limited Advancement Opportunities: Avoided. Though the cast has remained more or less constant, their relative rank and internal structure have been adjusted, including Brass's handing over the department to Grissom (and going back to being a detective), the race between Warrick and Nick to achieve CSI 3, and Ecklie's breakup of the team into two different shifts, which prompted the promotion of Catherine Willows to supervisor, and made room in the ranks for Greg to go from lab tech to field agent. Later on, Nick gets promoted to Catherine's right-hand man and Ray has progressed rather rapidly from starting out at entry level. A particularly nice touch in Greg's case was Grissom making sure he really did want to make the lateral (and downward!) jump from Senior Lab Tech to extremely junior Field Investigator, reminding him that he'll be taking a substantial pay cut and that it will take quite a while to get back to his present level.

Serial Killings, Specific Target
 CSI / int_13dc1beb
comment
Serial Killings, Specific Target: In one episode, a comedian dies from drinking a poisoned bottle of water. Then a kid dies from drinking the same brand. The first victim was the target; the killer (a rival comedian who hated his style) says he blames the CSIs for not finding the poisoned bottle in time as he's arrested after confessing out of remorse. Doctor Jekyll, when finally caught after a season-long killing spree, was in the process of murdering the true object of his rage- his own father. Played with in that every victim was connected to the main target, friends and acquaintances that they admired, so every murder was designed to make them suffer before they died, as well as giving Jekyll a chance to take out his frustrations on somebody. Done with a serial rapist in "Helpless", where it turns out that his first two rapes were 'dress rehearsals' so he could have all of the details worked out by the time he went for his intended victim.

Ripped from the Headlines
 CSI / int_1616e13
comment
Ripped from the Headlines: "Unfriendly Skies", inspired by the Jonathan Burton case and aired only months after the incident. "Anatomy of a Lye", based on the Gregory Biggs case. "After the Show", an almost word for word retelling of the Linda Sobek murder, and specially notable for having been co-written by Elizabeth Devine, a former CSI involved in the original case who is now a consultant to the show. "Trends With Benefits" is based on the suicide of Tyler Clementi who was outed by his roommate with his webcam, with a twist: The gay college student's death was an accident, him being gay wasn't an issue, and he was the one who was using hidden cameras (he wanted to be the next Perez Hilton), in this case to expose his professor raping a student. "Burked", based on the Binion murder case. While the key story elements are there, the identities of the killers are different. The episode where a rich guy hires his girlfriend and his girlfriend's jealous ex-boyfriend to stage a carjack in which his wife is killed, only to be killed himself right after by that ex-boyfriend, is closely modeled on this 2000 crime case. The show upped it by having the girlfriend also die in an accident and the killer trying to pass himself as a good samaritan. The main suspect in "Bittersweet" is closely modeled on Karla Homolka.

 CSI / int_18aff462
comment
Artistic License – Biology: The series plays fast and loose with various aspects of biology, particularly on the subject of fingerprints, which aren't necessarily left as easily or on as many surfaces as the show would have one believe. One CGI montage in "Grave Danger" shows fire ants injecting venom through their bites. Real ants only bite to get hold and then inject venom through their abdomen stings, like bees and wasps.

Never Trust a Trailer
 CSI / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: The 300th episode "Frame By Frame'' was promoted as featuring a return guest appearance by Marg Helgenberger, reprising her role as Catherine Willows. Some TV Guide entries even claimed that Catherine returns to assist the CSIs in a cold case. In actuality, Catherine only appears in flashbacks (newly shot, mind you), and the character never actually appears in the present time. The previous episode's trailer had Greg saying he's going to leave the CSI (after he had said in the last episode that, unlike Sara, he'd never tire of the job); actually he's afraid he's going to be forced to leave if it's proven his negligence put an innocent man in jail for a decade (it was actually a rookie cop who unwittingly contaminated the crime scene)

Suicide Is Shameful: In the episode "Who Shot Sherlock?", Greg cites the possibility that a relative of the deceased covered up a suicide as a possible explanation for contradictory evidence at the crime scene. In an odd twist it turns out to be a murder staged to look like a suicide which was staged to look like a murder because of this trope.

The Main Characters Do Everything
 CSI / int_1c9537cd
comment
The Main Characters Do Everything: Literally every possible police-related duty except handing out traffic tickets. It practically feels like the CSI team is an entire police department comprised of a dozen people. This show is pretty bad about this. In real life, CSIs simply go from crime scene to crime scene collecting evidence; they don't lab work. Right off the bat, a CSI's job is combined with a forensic scientist's job. They especially don't interview, interrogate and arrest people, even cities where the CSIs are police officers, they don't interview and interrogate people. Even Captain Jim Brass, the only actual main character with a badge, wouldn't be doing investigative work. The rank of Captain is a management rank, he'd spend most of his time at the station performing administrative duties. The combination of the CSI and forensic scientist jobs is due to California Doubling. The real-life criminalist(s) who were involved in the development and consultation of the show in its early years mostly worked in Los Angeles, where most criminalists both collect evidence from crime scenes and do lab work.

Ecklie has his moments of this when it comes to Morgan. He's not pleased when he finds out that Morgan testified on Hodges' behalf at a hearing for his possibly-a-Green-Card-scam engagement, and he punches a guy in the face when he won't admit to knowing where a kidnapped Morgan is. As he doesn't really have quite as much of an opportunity to go out and investigate things as the others when Morgan ends up in danger (as he's the Undersheriff/Sheriff), he doesn't get as much Papa Wolf behavior as the other examples here, but it's still very obvious that you do not want to be around him and be someone who's hurt her.

Wrong Genre Savvy
 CSI / int_20a14df0
comment
Wrong Genre Savvy: In "Boom," security guard Dominic is quick to use his expertise in bomb-making (he even blows some up himself in his spare time) to aid the team in the investigation of a bomb at an office building. At least, that's what Dominic thinks is happening. In truth, between his knowledge and his quirky behavior, the team considers him the prime suspect and Dominic goes along, even drawing how the bomb must have been set up, oblivious to how he's implicating himself. When a public defender tries to end a talk, Dominic just brushes her off as "they're being good to me." The team, meanwhile, come to the idea that Dominic is actually playing a twisted game of openly confessing without evidence to play them. It gets to the point where, after a conversation Dominic clearly doesn't realize is actually an interrogation, Grissom openly says he can't tell if the guy is a mastermind playing them or "just crazy." The answer comes when Dominic dies stopping a bomb from going off in a school and the team realize he really was a hero trying to help them out.

Long-Runner Cast Turnover
 CSI / int_240fd641
comment
Long-Runner Cast Turnover: Since the original premiered in 2000, its later seasons have seen the departure of three of its leads (Grissom, retired, and Catherine, new job, and Ray Langston (who replaced Grissom), forcibly resigned), two of its secondary leads (Sara, quit from PTSD but now Commuting on a Bus, and Warrick, Killed Off for Real) and a number of its recurring supporting roles (Wendy, Sofia, and the very short tenure of Riley, meant to replace Sara). Most of the departures were of the "actor wanting to move on" variety, but contract disputes and in Warrick's case, personal problems, also factored.

Spontaneous Human Combustion
 CSI / int_243c8078
comment
Spontaneous Human Combustion: One episode has a subplot dedicated to SHC. After finding a charred corpse with all the hallmarks of Real Life SHC cases, the characters conducted an experiment; they wrapped a pig's corpse in the woman's clothing, put the corpse on an identical lounger to the victim, doused the pig with liquor, and lit it up, thereby replicating the scene that they found. Grissom, who already knew about the Wick Effect, congratulated the experimenters on a successful experiment, and then told them that this was coming out of their paychecks since it was unnecessary.

Identical Twin Mistake
 CSI / int_246f70c6
comment
Identical Twin Mistake: One episode deals with the Victim of the Week being a soccer mom that was shot in a parking lot, and the investigation eventually leading to a house where the woman's identical twin has apparently hanged herself. Turns out that the women were long-lost twins and the one who apparently committed suicide had become a newspaper editor and was about to rat out a photographer that had photoshopped pictures of the Second Gulf War to "make them more representative of War Is Hell", winning a prize for that. He had shot the first twin by mistake due to them having gone to the same laundromat and her arriving at the time he had expected his target to be there. He then went to her house to take care of the evidence of his forged photos, and when the "dead" woman came home, he panicked, strangled and then hung her.

Shoot the Shaggy Dog
 CSI / int_272abb98
comment
Shoot the Shaggy Dog: " Fracked", essentially. Just when the team think they've figured out what's going on, Ecklie randomly forces them to close the investigation for no real reason. Particularly infuriating because the team have been allowed to proceed with investigations in which they had much less evidence than this one. "A Thousand Days On Earth" is another rather gutting example. Turns out there wasn't even any murder - the dead little girl had accidentally suffocated while playing with her foster siblings. Her foster father, a genuinely repentant ex-con, covered up her death because he didn't want to go back to jail, but before this is found out, his innocent wife is accidentally shot by an overzealous SWAT marksman. As if that weren't bad enough, Catherine unintentionally ruins the life of the totally-blameless first suspect by outing him as a registered sex offender (which he'd only become by accident - he obliviously stripped naked in front of a group of children while high), and in the episode's final scene he confronts her in the parking garage and tells her point blank that someday when she least expects it, he's planning to come to her house and commit suicide on her front lawn.

 CSI / int_27725a69

Nice Character, Mean Actor: In-universe and for a Top Chef-esque reality TV star: the show's producer was going out of her way to make him look like a nice underdog because he and another chef were her college buddies — and then she found out they were the ones who raped her sister (I think). She turned him into four fancy dishes and poisoned his buddy with almonds (actual almonds (well, almond powder), not the bitter kind).

Offing the Offspring: One woman was so devoted to her son that she [[spoiler: used her gangster boyfriend to murder her adult grandchildren and nearly her great-grandchild when she learned her granddaughter had evidence her son had molested them (his children, not the great-grandchild). Her excuse for being able to kill her own family so easily was the fact that she had given birth to and raised her son while the other three may as well have been strangers. Sadly this was ripped from the headlines (and before you ask: yup, Florida).

A Winner Is You
 CSI / int_27b418da
comment
A Winner Is You: After you beat a case with 100% completion, you usually just get Grissom telling you, that doesn't happen often, and that he's very impressed. If you don't get 100%, he just berates you and tells you to try better next time. To be fair though, it is in character for Grissom to give you such a bare minimum evaluation. In the games made after William Petersen's departure Catherine gives you a more glowing evaluation, making you feel like you really accomplished something. However, she pretty much says the same thing regardless if you get 100% or not.

Rogue Juror
 CSI / int_28604695

Rogue Juror: One episode of has the holdout on a jury found dead. The suspicion is that he was murdered to end the deadlock (on top of being an incredibly belligerent jackass), when in truth he was stung by a bee that had flown into the jury room through an open window and died from a massive allergic reaction. The post-"Fannysmackin'" arc regarding Greg's Accidental Murder of Demitrius James in the defense of a man he and a mob were beating up has Sanders trying to defend himself in court and, overall, what looked like an open-and-shut case (Greg saw the crowd, he tried to scare them off with his car, James tried to attack instead, he hit him with the car because he couldn't brake in time, it's all clear) turns into a circus of accusing Greg of alleged Police Brutality, racism and even the possibility of having been a Drunk Driver during the act (thus ending with the James family forming Irrational Hatred for cops in general and Greg in specific) because of a jackass juror that wishes "all of the facts being brought to light" and won't vote until he hears them (even interrupting testimonies to question the witnesses).

Life-or-Limb Decision: One episode begins with finding a dead woman who was missing a hand. They eventually find that she had bitten it off to escape from a psycho's basement. In "Consumed", it looks like a cannibalistic serial killer chewed through his own wrist in order to escape, leaving his hand handcuffed to the inside of a car. It was actually staged to allow the killer to exaggerate his mystique.

Nausea Dissonance: In one episode, Catherine sends the rookie officer escorting her out because of this trope (she doesn't want vomit contaminating her crime-scene). The suspect turns out to have been hiding, and attacks her. This doubles as a Call-Back when Warrick berates the officer for not clearing the scene because "[They] lost a CSI 2 years ago because of [that]." He's referring to the first episode, in which he was the one to leave another CSI alone at a crime scene.

Omniscient Database
 CSI / int_2bf84ccb
comment
Omniscient Database: Revolutionized this trope. They have demonstrated databases on blood, hair, rope, wire, shoe prints, tire treads, tire rubber compositions, and even clown makeup patterns. There was a Lampshade Hanging in a sixth season episode, in which Hodges sarcastically suggested searching a database to discover the brand of a hot dog. To be fair, the clown makeup database belonged to a clown guild in Las Vegas, which is Truth in Television. Each professional clown is required to wear a unique make-up that is registered in the guild. Wearing another clown's make-up is punishable. One episode featured a database that allows one to find where a picture in New York was taken by measuring the skyline in comparison to a reference height (while the technique is sound, there is no such software). An early Season Ten episode features a database on gangs, including cases related to each gang, their territory and their known members. In fact, it's when CSI avoids the trope that it can be jarring. A reoccurring scene is the local trace evidence guy naming a compound, and the CSI identifying the compound's common name, and its uses, including the more arcane (say, Jeweller grinder lubricant) on the top of their head. Said arcane use are always the key to cracking the case. This gets jarring because there ARE databases to identify the most common uses of chemicals.

Lotsa People Try to Dun It: A extreme example occurs in "Ending Happy". The CSIs are investigating Rasputinian Death of boxer Lorenzo 'Happy' Gonzales, and discover a bizarre chain of events where the multiple murder attempts ended interfering with each other. The drugged-up ex-boxer passes out on his favorite prostitute's bed, and is injected with snake venom by her and an accomplice. His boss's wife is fed shrimp by his boss, in order to trigger Happy's allergy when they hook up, causing his throat to swell. He's then shot through the throat with a crossbow by one of the people who injected him with snake venom, allowing him to breathe again. He figures out what the prostitute did and goes back to her room angry, and she hits him with a crowbar. Then he staggers off to rest on a chair by the brothel's swimming pool, and leans over to pick up a cigarette. The chair collapses under his weight and drops him into the pool, wherein he finally drowns.

Occam's Razor
 CSI / int_2e13acd1
comment
Occam's Razor: In a rather bizarre instance, Grissom brings this up in one episode to suggest that the killer was...the Nazi Mad Scientist Evil Twin of the man they thought was the killer. That was the "simplest explanation" he offered (he was right, of course, but still - hardly "simple"). Used also in Catherine's final episode where she's determined to prove a ruthless millionaire killed an old friend of hers as well as an FBI agent and behind attempts on Catherine's life. She does become confused when she realizes the leads don't seem to be panning out for the guy. It's Sara who cites the trope by noting this all started when Catherine's "old friend" who she hadn't seen in years showed up and told her about her husband being this criminal and then she vanished in a seeming car fire. As it happens, the "friend" set this whole thing up to trick Catherine into going after her husband to cover up how she'd been using her husband's foundation for her own criminal acts.

Murder by Mistake

comment
Murder by Mistake: In a particularly nasty example, a woman grief-stricken by news her teenaged daughter had been killed in a drunk-driving accident, slipped into the hospital and murdered the young woman who'd been driving the crashed vehicle. Turns out it was her own daughter whom she'd killed, as the two near-identical girls had both suffered disfiguring facial injuries, had swapped outfits and driving duties that evening, and her daughter had borrowed her friend's fake ID to buy booze. In "The Lost Reindeer", the murderer planned to kill the man hired to play Santa at a Christmas party. However, the Santa left early and one of the other guests put on the costume.

Poorly Disguised Pilot
 CSI / int_38b05ae7
comment
Poorly Disguised Pilot: CSI did this to launch CSI: Miami, which in turn launched CSI NY. And the episode "Hollywood Brass" certainly feels like a PDP. Were they thinking about a Jim Brass spin-off set in LA? It seemed possible also with the episode "The Thing About Heroes" of CSI NY, which introduced at least one major character from the Chicago police department, but no spinoff was launched. Rumours circulated for a while about a possible CSI London (although for accuracy, it should be SOCO London, as the real-life CSI equivalents of the British Police are called Scene Of (the) Crime Officersnote  The NYPD relies on CSU—Crime Scene Unit) such that, when Mac Taylor of CSI: NY visited London, there was an expectant hush among some viewers... which dissipated almost immediately, since London was just a stock-footage pretty backdrop for a mystery phone call, part of a very definitely American story arc. The "Cybercrimes" episode definitely felt like a pilot... and it was ordered to series as CSI: Cyber.

Noodle Incident: DB and Finlay's past. Something caused them to become estranged for years. Probably not an affair, seeing as DB's family wants them to get along. Turns out Finlay went to extremes to prove a VIP was guilty and DB was forced to fire her despite believing in her. We never find out exactly what Kelly from Grave Danger did to go to prison, or if she's actually innocent as she says. They say she was an accessory to murder along with her boyfriend. although who the victim was, who her boyfriend was, why he killed him, or how she supposedly helped are never explained. Surprisingly, the Necro Cam bit they do in the same scene only makes it more confusing.

Ironically they came into contact because the kid's mom wanted to help her son after his only friend was shot by cops and signed him up for (among other things) an LVPD youth outreach program.

"Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: In "Anatomy of a Lye", a young hot-shot attorney tried to cover up what appeared to be a DUI hit-and-run when he allowed the pedestrian he hit to die while lodged in his windshield, then soaked his body in lye and buried him in a playground. But as it turned out, the pedestrian jumped out in front of his car in a suicide attempt. If he had just stopped and called 9-1-1, he probably would've gotten off scot free, or at worst with just a DUI charge.

Adult Fear: One episode had two boys who went missing and the main suspect is a pedophile. It didn't help when the team had to enlist his help to try to find the boys and he began to describe in detail to Grissom how he would lure a child to him by gaining their trust. Another suspect was one of the boys' abusive grandfather. Imagine you were the son of that man, forced to leave your son with him because the grandfather was the only one available to look after your son. And failed. The pedophile did it.

Downer Ending: "Alter Boys", "Homebodies", "Fracked", "Let it Bleed", and of course "For Gedda". Really, any episode where they can't prove the suspect did anything wrong could be considered this. "Bittersweet" had the culprit turn out to be a surviving victim from a serial killer that was imprinted on by her violator and ended up murdering her victims in the same fashion. Just five episodes later, in "Crime After Crime," it's revealed that fairly major recurring character Detective Vega has gone Vigilante Executioner, and he commits Suicide by Cop. "Trends With Benefits" seemed like it was heading this way. The rapist professor's victim didn't want to press charges and the other students he had sex with consented but somehow word gets out and the professor is suspended.

Affably Evil: Doctor Dave, the serial-killing dentist from the episode "Sweet Jane". He has a pleasant chat with Catherine about loving his work (dentistry, not serial killing), and how he especially takes care to make a child's first trip to the dentist the least frightening and painful as possible. And when she confronts him about his crimes, not only does he never once deny that he is, in fact, a murderer, he describes the killings in the same affectionate tone that he just described trying to make a trip to the dentist less scary for kids. Ned Beatty's note-perfect performance was a complete blend of utterly friendly and utterly scary-creepy. To push this even farther, when Catherine is trying to mix the putty for his dental impression, he remarks that she's not quite doing it right and does both the mixing and the impression himself; again, as politely as one could possibly be while fessing up to being a serial killer.

Police are Useless: A major wallbanger happens in Season 11's "Cello and Goodbye". Ray catches up to Nate Haskell at a carnival, both men have guns drawn. Haskell is raving about how Ray's ex-wife is still alive, wielding his gun all over, yelling at the top of his lungs, and just seven feet away. Cops catch up to Ray and... arrest Ray. They somehow miss the screaming madman on a nearby platform with a big gun.

Karma Houdini Warranty: A very long example: in the first season episode Too Tough To Die Tony Thorpe rapes and beats up a woman so bad she is left braindead, but, as she's technically still alive, it's not murder so he only gets a few years. In season 9 when Sara comes back we find someone pulled the plug on the victim. While Thorpe is suspected at first it turns out he got in a gun fight and ended up paralysed from the waist down. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy..

Mistaken for Badass: Happens on a few episodes, but as an example: "Better Off Dead" has one of the people put in the hospital because of Mr. Trent's Plague of Good Fortune calls him a "Terminator"-style unflinching machine, completely unafraid of death (even as he's describing it, a cut to another location shows some thief with a switchblade being scared off from Trent's lack of response to his threatening). Turns out that Trent is a suicidal man on a quest to get killed, but the universe itself seems to conspire against him on this.

" Fracked", essentially. Just when the team think they've figured out what's going on, Ecklie randomly forces them to close the investigation for no real reason.

Consulting a Convicted Killer
 CSI / int_5ece868a
comment
Consulting a Convicted Killer: Langston seeks the help of his nemesis, serial killer Nate Haskell, to catch the "Dr. Jekyl Killer". He isn't really that helpful and mostly just messes them around. His actual plan was to goad a guard into shocking him as to fall and break his own glasses... and using the broken arms from said glasses to stab Langston through the bars of his holding cell. Well, he pointed them to the restaurant where they found the link between all of the murders and from there were led to the actual killer, so in that sense he was very helpful. But after that he just strung them along waiting for his chance to attack Ray, and milking his apparent knowledge for all it was worth.

Can't Get Away with Nuthin': Catherine visits the Highball after work once. Naturally, a murder occurs there, and she gets chewed out by everyone for failing to mention that she went there for a drink until they haul a Smug Snake suspect in and he recognizes her. Her daughter and mother also join in the shunning, and the episode ends with Gil giving her the silent treatment, followed by a curt lecture on how an 'act of omission' makes her just like a common perpetrator.

Spanner in the Works: Several criminals are apprehended when other people unwittingly discover their victims' bodies or provide evidence that allow the CSIs to catch them. Children who get chemical burns from the lye used to try and dissolve a buried corpse, panicking teenage girls who steal a car containing a severed head before the killer has a chance to bury it (see Dead Man's Chest above), one of the same girls slapping her hand on a murderer's car and leaving a handprint that proves the killer was there at the time of the murder, or a Heroic Bystander catching a Peeping Tom who also turns out to be a serial rapist, have all given the CSIs invaluable help over the years.

Chute Sabotage: In "The Descent of Man", the near-death of a skydiver whose parachute was sabotaged turns out to be connected with the deaths of two men who were killed from the sky. The skydiver actually sabotaged his own chute in an attempt to commit suicide out of guilt over his involvement in the two murders. It doesn't work. In "Angle of Attack", the reserve chute on a pilot's wing suit is disabled before he is sent flying to his death. Except he was already dead The sabotaged wing suit is an attempt to disguise the cause of death.

Bunny-Ears Lawyer
 CSI / int_61b8f9e2
comment
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: At least half the cast are deeply messed up despite being good at their jobs. Although downplayed in later seasons, early episodes often emphasized that this was the LVPD crime lab's night crew. Shows with workplace settings often allude to a day shift, who remain off-camera and provide a convenient explanation for mix-ups or miscommunications. On the rare occasion that someone from the day shift appears onscreen, they may well be wearing Bunny Ears — and if a member of the main cast works a day shift, they may be the only one NOT wearing Bunnny Ears. This is often Truth in Television: second (3PM to 11PM) or third (11PM to 6AM) shift hours make a normal social life very difficult and anyone who works that schedule long-term is probably a little bonkers. CSI was an entire series about those third shift oddballs. In a cast full of weirdos, the title definitely goes to Hodges, who starts out so mentally unbalanced that in Real Life he not only would never be allowed to work with law enforcement in any capacity, but probably wouldn't even be allowed outdoors without some kind of supervision. Even in-universe, he's had trouble holding down a job for exactly those reasons. Before Hodges joined the cast, Grissom held the title. It's clear why he hasn't risen further in the department — races cockroaches for fun, avoids paperwork to the detriment of his subordinates — but he's way more than competent at his job. Actually played literally at one point: A lawyer wearing a bunny-mask posed as a ransom-holder for his client.

comment
Amusement Park of Doom: When Catherine is assigned to investigate the death of a six-year old girl named Sandy Dantini during a tunnel ride with her mother at a carnival in the Season One episode, Justice is Served, the death of the girl is built up to be because of this trope. The manager is a registered sex offender who is now running place designed especially for small children, and happened to be seen near the ride during the time of the murder (which happened to be the only ride in the carnival that went into the dark). After finding a hammer in said ride, deduces that Pickenns either abducted Sandy from the ride and killed her with the hammer because there was no way for him to escape unnoticed with her, or that Sandy was killed by Pickett's non-code conforming ride and tried to repair it to cover the evidence. It turns out that the real murderer was Sandy's own mother, as parenthood was getting in the way of her relationship with her boyfriend, and intentionally killed Sandy at a carnival as several of them fit this trope to a perfect T, and knew that the authorities would immediately suspect the carnival staff or the shoddy ride itself as the cause of Sandy's death rather than her.

The Only One: The Crime Scene Investigators (and Brass) are the only law enforcement personnel who care about getting the criminals. The DAs only care about getting convictions, even if it is a wrongful one. Judges are at best unhelpful or helpless, at worst are corrupt and seek to hinder the CSIs in any way possible. Other cops just don't care. Parole boards are more focused on bureaucracy than on doing their job of making sure bad people stay in jail. Fire Departments are ridiculed for destroying evidence, and the never-seen day shift CSIs are a bunch of lazy incompetents. For the "other cops" part, subverted quite impressively by part-time Miami character Aaron Jessop, who apparently had the observational and mental skills to be a CSI himself. Pity he tripped a booby trap and got blown up.

Paranormal Episode: Had an episode with a psychic helping the CSIs. He died before we could find out if he was a fraud, though all his predictions did come true. "Toe Tags", which had the stories told from the corpses' perspective, like they were ghosts. The cases themselves are normal, though; the supernatural elements are just a framing device. "Go To Hell" in the end leaves up in the air whether or not Amy Macalino was so much of a crazy sociopath that she honestly thought acting possessed by the Devil (complete with struggling through an exorcism) was a good way to create an Insanity Defense for the murder of her parents and younger sister, or if she was actually possessed.

Streetwalker: The first season has Nick falling for the hooker, Kristy Hopkins, who is indeed killed by her pimp. According to her pimp she lied about wanting to get out of it. Something similar happens to Warrick in the eighth season, where he was framed for her murder. Catherine Willows could be considered this, as she is a former stripper. She hasn't been killed, but constantly faces people and places from her dubious past. Likewise, Grissom's one-time potential love interest Lady Heather could be considered this as she was an intelligent but intense woman who ran an S&M club. She, however, was not the delicate flower in need of nurturing but more of a velvet glove and iron fist in one.

Part two of Sara Sidle's Tension Conga Line at the hands of the miniature killer in "Living Doll"/"Dead Doll" Left abandoned in the desert, with her arm pinned under an overturned car, she's first threatened by a Coyote which takes a keen interest in her exposed arm, before being chased away by an impending storm - which results in a flash flood, causing this. Only for Sara to escape the car (thanks to the flood shifting the vehicle's weight and freeing her arm), resulting in her being lost in the desert, and almost dying from heatstroke/dehydration. All the while, the CSIs and police are desperately trying to find her.

Being Good Sucks: Oftentimes, during the course of an investigation, someone's life will be ruined, as Leo Finley can attest. Though the best example of this is "Say Uncle", where Grissom eventually learns that an eight-year-old boy, driven over the Despair Event Horizon when his drug addict mother shot his uncle to death, took the uncle's gun and shot his mother to death. The episode ends with the boy going off to juvie, and Grissom expressing regret over the whole situation.

Put on a Bus: Inevitably for such a long-running series, this has happened several times. Sara and Grissom, presumed retired for good, although Grissom did have a cameo in Season 11's "The Two Mrs.Grissoms". Sara returned for a few episodes starting in Season 10, and began Commuting on a Bus starting in Season 11. Catherine as of Season 12. Wendy (Liz Vassey) got on the bus in Season 11. Sofia and Riley also make quick exits even after getting promoted to the titles.

Hollywood Science: Never take anything presented as science on any of the episodes as even remotely factual unless you verify it first. In fact, the illusion of accuracy in this manner is causing some issues... In the earlier seasons, the show prided itself on portraying science relatively accurately (though Miami didn't); even the seemingly-nonsensical "acoustic archaeology" that solves the case in "Committed" has factual basis. This changed in later on, the most egregious example likely being a computer program that can apparently delete things out of photographs to see what's behind them.

Reckless Gun Usage: Nick Stokes investigates how a woman got shot with no evidence of a shooter anywhere near. The answer is that there was an idiot who had a gun and made a shooting range in the backyard, in the suburbs within city limits, a big-time city ordinance no-no, and a stray bullet went into the air and struck the woman on the decline. When they arrest him, he protests it was an accident and Stokes contemptuously responds "Well, that's why it's illegal to shoot guns within city limits, genius!"

"The Reason You Suck" Speech: All three series have their fair share of these, but Catherine is the subject of a brutal one from Leo Finley at the end of "A Thousand Days on Earth". Even though he's innocent of murder, Leo's fiance, Norah, now knows he's a sex offender because Catherine dug up his past during her investigation. He explains to Catherine that Norah kicked him out of his own home and got a restraining order, in addition to telling all their neighbors as well as his boss, resulting in him losing his job. And it's all Catherine's fault. You can feel Leo's pain as he calls Catherine a "blonde Nazi bitch" and screams at her for not caring about ruining his life before telling her in a chillingly calm tone that he's thinking about killing himself and that if he does, that'll be her fault too.

Sex Is Evil
 CSI / int_7dad519f
comment
Sex Is Evil: One of the more frequent knocks on CSI is that this is pretty much how it treats any sex practices (regardless of consent) outside of hetero and committed. This is a common problem with any Crime and Punishment Series, really, as the only time the characters usually encounter alternative lifestyles is when there's a grisly murder involved. CSI tends to be a bit schizophrenic about this, really. While they tend to portray "perverts" of various types as being twisted in various way aside from their sexual appetites, those that weren't involved in the crime of the week, and even some who were, are ultimately portrayed sympathetically for the most part. The best example is Recurrer Lady Heather, a dominatrix who is a tragic and sympathetic character. Admittedly, most of the tragic part is in some way due to her lifestyle, but it is ultimately left up to the viewer to decide whether this is due to her own "sins," or other people's (including her own daughter) reaction to them. Humorously, ex-stripper Catherine seems to be the most squicked out by alternative sexual practices. Grissom, of course, finds it all very fascinating. Toyed with in an early episode where Nick sleeps with a woman who is found dead the next morning. As the last person to see her alive, he is automatically the prime suspect in the investigation. Turns out, she was a prostitute who was going to go solo, and her former pimp killed her after Nick left her house.

Time-Delayed Death
 CSI / int_7e5b0184

Time-Delayed Death: Several examples: A man who was punched in the back of the head in a bar fight, who later died of a brain hemorrhage in the bath. A boy who was stabbed trying to prevent his little brother from murdering their mother's boyfriend tries to walk home, but collapses and dies... right under the tires of a cab. The cabbie then gets beaten to death by a mob who thinks he ran the boy down and was about to drive off, when he was actually going for his radio. This was the killer, Dr. Jekyll's pattern, he would knock them out and perform surgery on them that would sabotage their body from the inside, thus causing them to die weeks after the incident without them knowing why. A football coach is savagely beaten about the head while he sleeps; the next morning he wakes up, brushes his teeth, has breakfast and gets the paper while bleeding profusely from his head and mouth. The ME concludes that parts of his brain was just intact enough to "zombie-walk" him through his morning rituals. A miner gets a long splinter stuck on the top of his head and manages to drive from a mine in the mountains to a casino parking before he collapses and dies in front of a police officer. The cop is understandably confused.

Human Mail: In "Helpless", a woman had herself packed into a box and shipped to her lover as a way of generating a sexual thrill. However, because her lover had been murdered, there was no on to let her out at the other end and she died. In "Nesting Dolls," the bodies of two women are found in a makeshift grave. The first one is, in fact, a homicide, but the second turns out to be an illegal immigrant who attempted to literally mail herself to the U.S. and died in the process.

Lethal Klutz: "Loco Motives" features a guy like this. He accidentally kills his wife and somehow decides that the best thing to do was bury her in fresh cement at a construction site... where he gets stuck. It gets worse when they delve into his backstory. Some characters find his antics funny but Grissom is just disturbed. It gets worse. Not only did he accidentally murder his wife, but also accidentally murders his neighbor. When he was a kid, he also accidentally murdered his grandmaby falling asleep in a rocking chair, on top of her oxygen line.

comment
Sympathetic Murderer: Played absolutely straight in one episode with a guy who is responsible, by complete and total accident, for the death of his grandmother, wife, and next door neighbor, and winds up buried up to his waist in cement for it. The whole thing reads like an extended version of The Far Side, complete with the wife wearing cats-eye glasses. Then there was the guy from "Lying Down With Dogs" who was an FBI agent undercover in a dogfighting ring who could never get enough evidence to prove what was really going on, and was thus forced to watch innocent animals being abused in every way imaginable without being able to do anything, eventually snapping and killing the head of the ring by subjecting her to every torture she put the dogs through. Quite possibly Ray, who seems to have killed Nate Haskell by dropping him from the second story of his (Nate's) house after tying him up. Justified in that Nate is a serial killer who murdered Ray's ex-wife's husband and tortured her for days. Either way Ray's not returning next season. One killer was a genuinely reformed ex-con who became involved in a love triangle with two sisters after being released from prison. The older sister kills the younger accidentally in a fight over him, then smugly points out to the ex-con that if the cops start asking questions she'll just say he did it and send him back to jail. He kills her in the heat of the moment, and ironically does end up going back to jail.

The investigator expects him to say he killed the puppy. He replies, "No, I ran over my daughter. Ten years later, and she still walks funny." Catherine is listening in and barely stifles her laughter.

It turns out that the corpse that was thought to be the mob boss's was actually his; killed in order to serve as a decoy.

As an example: in the season five finale, "Grave Danger", Grissom, Entomologist Extraordinaire, determines Nick's location from the ants in his box, since fire ants can only be found in nurseries in Nevada, which means that the soil... you can figure out the rest. Punningly used in the episode "Fracked", with literal GPS data.

She catches him in the act and shoots him, but that's not the karmic part. That would be when the new dog turns out to have been abused, goes berserk at the sound of the gunshot, and rips her throat out. A scammer that made a living selling the same exhausted mine once and again kills a man that knew too much and decides to disguise it as a mining accident. He fails to leave before the fuse burns down and gets a splinter stuck on his brain.

Back Tracking: The amount of times you have to keep going back to a crime scene, or a suspect's place (just to gather more evidence, or get more information) is a little ridiculous and unrealistic, especially when compared to the TV show. The game designers sort of lampshade it though sometimes by having the suspects get really agitated with you everytime you come back to get more info, or look for more evidence.

Take a Third Option: In the first season, Warrick and Catherine catch a teenage boy who accidentally ran over a little girl. Warrick gives the remorseful kid his number, and tells him to call if he runs into any problems in juvie. In the next season, the kid witnesses a teenage gangbanger murdering his rival. The DA wants the kid to testify, and threatens to extend his sentence if he refuses. On the other hand, the kid knows if he does that the other inmates will kill him. Instead, he calls Warrick for help. Warrick's investigation finds enough evidence to convict the gangbanger without the kid needing to testify.

Faux Affably Evil: No greater example than Doctor Dave from the episode "Sweet Jane", a very nice Cool Old Guy and dentist who does gags to keep kids from being afraid when they visit him... and he is also an utterly unapologetic Serial Killer who targeted girls that had just arrived to town and was not caught for decades (it helped him that he only felt the urge to kill at least once a decade or so) and he said that he still could recall the girls' names but refused to tell the police (so they would remain Jane Does forever) in the same peppy tone he used to chide Catherine about how she wasn't mixing the dental template gel right.

Casual Kink: Grissom takes Charlotte on a date to see "The Wizard of Oz" played with Pink Floyd music, because he wanted to show her something different. Charlotte replies, "You want to be different, pin me to the wall and plant one on me like you mean it!" At the end of the scene, Grissom starts to leave, then pauses to ask, "Pin you to the wall?" Sara needs to test out a theory about how a victim was restrained with duct tape, so she askes Grissom to "Tape me up?" Grissom, before following her to the lab, comments, "I love my job!"

Doctor Jekyll, when finally caught after a season-long killing spree, was in the process of murdering the true object of his rage- his own father. Played with in that every victim was connected to the main target, friends and acquaintances that they admired, so every murder was designed to make them suffer before they died, as well as giving Jekyll a chance to take out his frustrations on somebody.

Be as Unhelpful as Possible: When a member of CSI intimates that the husband is always the first suspect when a wife is murdered, the husband's response is typically "You think I did this? This interview is over!" - inadvertently doing the pragmatic thing. (But again, Truth in Television; police expect ordinary people to get angry when accused of crimes they didn't commit.)

 CSI / int_97aaa7f3
comment
In the Blood: Langston fears he may have a genetically inherited violent streak from his father, which is the toned-down version of his original backstory where he fears he may become a serial killer. In an interesting subversion, the person he tells the story of his father (minus the In The Blood part) is the adopted son of the infamous serial killer Judge Mason/Paul Millander, to show that being a serial killer isn't passed down to people who are neither related to nor shown that kind of behavior, despite what his weary mother fears. Played straight with Haskell: His father has been killing for years and his victims include Haskell's mother.

Evil Counterpart
 CSI / int_9b54d536
comment
Evil Counterpart: Grissom used to hold fellow entomologist Dr. Mark Thayer in high esteem, and they even co-authored a scientific paper once. Since then, however, Dr. Thayer has become what Grissom describes as a "hired gun", selling his services to the highest bidder. When Thayer's testimony for the defense threatens to derail a high-profile murder trial, the D.A.'s office asks Grissom to try and refute Thayer's findings. Grissom eventually discovers that Thayer deliberately doctored the evidence to get the results he wanted to present, which would have given the jury cause for reasonable doubt. After Grissom explains his findings on the stand and destroys Thayer's testimony, an enraged Thayer comes up to him and accuses him of attacking his integrity. As they're arguing, the D.A. comes up to them and orders Thayer's arrest on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. To a lesser extent, Gil's counterpart on Day Shift, Conrad Ecklie. He tended to choose the "convenient" answer rather than the correct one and was more interested in advancing his career than finding justice.

It's Personal
 CSI / int_a0db7803
comment
It's Personal: Seasons often start and/or end with an "It's Personal" episode. In the episode "Random Acts of Violence", Warrick is processing the scene of a suburban drive-by shooting, at which a young child has been shot and killed. Upon discovering that the child's father is a close friend (known to be an admirable and honorable person generally), Warrick does his best to comfort the grieving father. Aware of this connection, Grissom arrives and checks on his colleague: In early seasons, even if there weren't a direct relationship between the investigators and the criminals the nature of the crime would often make the investigator take it personally themselves. For instance: domestic abuse, or overall violence towards women? Sara would sympathize. Broken marriages, or mothers (especially the working kind)? Catherine. Damaged childhoods? Nicky. Grissom himself explicitly stated that drug dealers and people who harm children make him furious.

The episode where a rich guy hires his girlfriend and his girlfriend's jealous ex-boyfriend to stage a carjack in which his wife is killed, only to be killed himself right after by that ex-boyfriend, is closely modeled on this 2000 crime case. The show upped it by having the girlfriend also die in an accident and the killer trying to pass himself as a good samaritan.

Cop Killer: Several examples in spirit, though not always in letter since the CSIs aren't actually cops in this show. The Red Shirt who gets killed when Warrick leaves her alone at a crime scene in the pilot. A random officer who's killed outside a burger joint...by another cop who claims it was an accident, but might have had a grudge ( it was dark and said cop was losing his vision). Warrick Brown was killed at the end of a later season by The Undersheriff.

After thoroughly investigating them, he realizes that the real "murderer" is an AC repairman working in the room directly above the computer room, whom nobody had noticed. He dropped his hammer accidentally, it fell through an air-vent, hit the victim fatally on the head, and was then retrieved by the repairman, who said nothing to keep himself out of trouble.

Karma Houdini: A typical CSI Downer Ending will likely involve one of these, the most horrifying examples being Kelly James from "Homebodies", a robber and rapist who not only walks, but murders the only person who could finger him; the gas company from "Fracked", who drove an old farmer to suicide after poisoning all his animals; and Gina from "Bittersweet", who served five years in prison as an accessory to murder, only for new evidence to come to light that she was the dominant partner, and she's protected by double jeopardy. She's suspected of being the episode's killer, and not only is it not her (it's her traumatized last victim), but the Papa Wolf of one of her victims goes to jail for beating her half to death.

Black Widow

comment
Before both of these was "Organ Grinder", in which the perps were a tag-team of Black Widows who would go from state to state, one of them marrying wealthy men for their money and the other poisoning the husband, with the roles flip-flopping every other kill. They would then meticulously destroy all evidence so that the only thing investigators would have on them would be their own testimony... and then each flip on the other, forcing the authorities to let them go. They end up being the first perps on the show to get away completely scot-free (not counting Millander, who is brought down later on). In an interview, the episode's writer said she realized this was a huge Anticlimax, and if she had the chance to write it again she would've had one kill the other and go down for it.

In a cast full of weirdos, the title definitely goes to Hodges, who starts out so mentally unbalanced that in Real Life he not only would never be allowed to work with law enforcement in any capacity, but probably wouldn't even be allowed outdoors without some kind of supervision.

No-Sell: Agent Ryan doesn't flinch when a sadistic criminal has a gun to her face, nor does she bat an eye when he slashes her arm with a knife — in fact she suggested he use it instead of the gun because it would be more "his thing" as a sadist (actually she was protecting the cops who were about to bust in, and the slashing added years to his sentence).

Weirdness Censor: One episode that dealt with a murder in a crowded theater referenced "The Invisible Gorilla", one of the most well-known experiments in the history of modern psychology, as an explanation for why a group of bystanders just stood there and ignored a horrible crime happening in their presence: the audience was concentrating so hard on the show that they missed the murder happening right in front of them. "The Invisible Gorilla" operates thusly: a test group watches a video that featured six people, three in white shirts, three in black shirts, passing a basketball back and forth. The test group was instructed to carefully count the number of passes made from one white-shirted person to another. Afterward, the test group was asked, "Did you notice the gorilla?" Turns out that at one point in the video, a man in a gorilla costume walks into the middle of the basketball players, thumps its chest a few times, then walks off-stage. In total, the gorilla is onscreen for nearly nine seconds, and no one ever spots (even those people who go into the experiment knowing there is going to be a gorilla tend to not spot it at all). The experiment does depend somewhat on context, however—the black gorilla is "irrelevant information" because of the instruction to focus on the white-shirted players. In at least one repeat of the experiment in which the instructions were given to watch the black shirts instead, the gorilla was immediately spotted by nearly everyone.

comment
Enhance Button: They once used a reflection in a young girl's eye in a photo to get an image of a location of where the picture was taking at (a boat). A particularly egregious example happened when they showed off a 3D crime scene scanner. Such a device does actually exist, using a laser to create a 3D image of an area, but they then used the computer to lift the body off the bed to look at the stains on the sheets underneath it. It's the equivalent of taking an ordinary photographic image and being able to "strip away" the skin and muscles to get an image of not just the structure of the person's bones, but what color they are. Theoretically, this could work, if they'd separately scanned the pattern of bloodstains into the computer, then had it apply this pattern onto the sheets of the 3D simulation. If so, it's a legitimate way to demonstrate how the stains were distributed underneath the body, once the sheets had been removed as evidence.

He sexually abused his own daughter, who gave birth to a daughter, making him the father of both daughters, with the first daughter as both a daughter and a mother to the same father, so he's actually a father and grandfather to his own daughters. Yeah, it was as hard to understand as it was to watch.

Unwanted Rescue: The A-plot in the episode "Unleashed" turns out to be this. The victim was living as a Human Pet (the BDSM variant of that trope, though sex seems to be entirely absent from the arrangement) in the mansion of a rich dentist, along with several other women (the arrangement was entirely consensual and the women could have left at any time). Unfortunately, her former assistant (the victim used to work at a shelter for abused women) assumed the victim had been brainwashed and wanted to "free" her, which led to the victim's death.

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
 CSI / int_c33ba0a8
comment
Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Detective Sofia Curtis was a recurring character during seasons 5 and 6, and actress Louise Lombard was a main cast member in season 7. But come season 8, Lombard left the series and, two seasons later, Sofia's disappearance has yet to be explained. Until now... Most of the lab rat characters, (Archie, Mandy, Mia) disappeared from the show around 2007, although some stuck around until Ted Danson's tenure started. But so they eventually stopped appearing without any mention. Only Wendy (Liz Vassey) had an actual send-off.

The Pilot episodes of CSI: Miami and CSI: NY both crossed over with CSI Crime Scene Investigation, as well as there being an eventual three part crossover with all three, but Gil Grissom never appeared in them. This is apparently because William Petersen was against the spin-offs and refused to appear.

Shout-Out
 CSI / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: Hodges and Langston do a very-thinly-disguised MythBusters-style experiment, complete with Plexiglas shield. All they needed was the "3, 2, 1!" part. There is also the experiment conducted by Nick and company with a ballistics gel dummy. In an earlier episode, Savage and Hyneman make a cameo observing such an experiment conducted by Nick, involving a taser and the flammability of pepper spray. To make it go full circle, Mythbusters in turn tested the experiment as part of their show. For the results, you'll have to see the episode in question. In another episode, a missing woman is found with a Serial Killer at a place called Black Mesa. Hodges' cat is called Kobayashi Maru. Boomer and her creator look on in horror as a Star Trek expy is given the Darker and Edgier treatment. The 2009 season opens with an extended Bullet Time extravaganza, complete with Morpheus kicking an "Agent" through a window. "Blood Moon"'s Cold Opening looks and sounds a lot like True Blood's opening titles. "Fracking" also happens to be detective Starbuck's second episode and has a direct reference: Also includes an Erin Brockovich reference to Catherine (she's not Erin Brockovich, but she was a client). Several Quentin Tarantino motifs are used in the Season 5 finale he directed and co-wrote: Warrick and Nick have a Seinfeldian Conversation before going to work, Grissom has a rare piece of Lone Ranger memorabilia, there's a Death as Comedy moment, a character gets buried alive for a good chunk of time, and Grissom even gets to say, "On any other day, you'd be 100% right, but today, you're 100% wrong." Possibly the accounting firm of Baker, Smith, and Capaldi mentioned in "Angle of Attack".

We never find out exactly what Kelly from Grave Danger did to go to prison, or if she's actually innocent as she says. They say she was an accessory to murder along with her boyfriend. although who the victim was, who her boyfriend was, why he killed him, or how she supposedly helped are never explained. Surprisingly, the Necro Cam bit they do in the same scene only makes it more confusing.

Two Lines, No Waiting: Nearly every single episode for most of the run. Occasionally the characters will find out halfway through the episode that the crimes they are investigating are tied together. Some episodes pull this off better than others. There have been less of them recently for budget reasons - you essentially have to hire twice the guest cast.

Series Continuity Error: Sara says in one ep she has a brother, then in season 12, she says she was an only child. Sort of with the original bios on the CBS website. Catherine was said to have been born in Bozeman, Montana (likely recycled to CSI: NY's Lindsay) and Grissom's father was said to have been involved in smuggling. The first guidebook, covering the first three seasons, has this information as well.

No Badge? No Problem!: CSI gets Flanderized into this in parodies but it's not as prevalent as it's made out to be. While the CSIs tend to do things that the police would be the ones to do in real life (like interviewing suspects or capturing them, though the latter tends to happen only when someone they plan to just speak to runs away), Grissom often reminds civilians he isn't a cop, and at one point was told to leave the scene by Brass when it became apparent that a suspect was still there. This said, it is quite common for them to enter a possible scene with weapons drawn... ahead of the actual cops.

There have also been hints towards possible Nick and Sara - Word of God states that Sara's phonecall at the end of "You've Got Male" was originally intended to be to Nick, and they have had moments of reciprocated flirting.

comment
Side Bet: In one episode, Greg Sanders's replacement eventually cracks from the pressure to be just like Greg and quits. Nick forks over a bill to Warrick. (Who really shouldn't have been participating...) There's also been a whole episode with a Running Gag about Nick and Warrick having a bet on what happened to the Vic of the Week. Either Warrick can engage in "fun" bets with a buddy without a problem, or, considering this was one of the earlier seasons, the writers were letting their sometimes schizophrenic approach to characterisation show. Another episode sees Catherine and Grissom make a bet over whether two murder victims' deaths were related or not (they were long lost twins). In the end it turns out they were both right, and Catherine rips a bill apart, handing half of it to Gil. This comes after a very heavy conversation, lending to a tension breaker when Grissom reminds her that doing so is a federal offense.

Never Suicide
 CSI / int_cfbd1467
comment
Never Suicide: Subverted in one episode where an investor shoots himself at a party. It originally looks like a staged suicide since he's still holding the gun, which usually doesn't happen as the muscles relax after death. Another variation: The villain of an early story-arc staged identical suicides of men who were born on his father's birthday, the same date as and manner in which his father was murdered - up to and including a faked recorded suicide note. He did all this to prove his father's murder wasn't a suicide. This was eventually subverted as Millander, who it turns out was born on the same day as his father (and Grissom, incidentally), killed himself in the same way he had killed the other men. Inverted in another episode: a man is found in the woods with all the evidence initially pointing towards murder. It actually turns out to be a suicide designed to look like a murder so his wife would receive his life insurance money. Subverted yet again in another episode, when one man throws himself in front of a car. The entire episode runs like an ordinary investigation, the suicide letter being the final twist revealed only seconds before the episode ends. Ironically, this ended up turning into a murder, as the driver that hit him had been drunk at the time and, rather than admit to hitting someone while intoxicated, hid the still-living man in his garage and tried to dispose of the body the next day. One double subversion, when a Sherlock Holmes impersonator is found shot to death. Like the above example, the episode runs as a murder investigation, until the team discovers the gun tied to an elastic in the chimney, revealing that when the victim shot himself and let go of the gun, the elastic snapped it back into the chimney. Then we find out that the real murderer, in a reference to one of Holmes' later cases, had set the whole thing up to look like a suicide that had been set up to look like a murder, as an appropriately Holmesian mystery. Yes, a murder, made to look like a suicide, made to look like a murder. "Trends With Benefits" starts out looking like the real-life suicide of Tyler Clementi (see Ripped From The Headlines), but it turns out the victim's death was accidental.

There Are No Coincidences: Gil Grissom repeatedly says that he does not believe in coincidences. He even quoted Goldfinger at one point, saying "Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy's action." However, in the episode "Chaos Theory", Grissom is forced, at the end of the episode's investigation, to accept that the death and disappearance of college student Paige Rycoff was the result of a series of unfortunate random events that, when taken in sequence, were only connected because, together, they directly led to the girl dying in a tragic accident that merely appeared at first blush, to be murder.

Everybody Did It: "Unfriendly Skies", though it was actually self-defense; the delusional victim was trying, probably unintentionally, to bring down the plane. "Tell-Tale Hearts". Unusual in that the CSIs have confessions from all suspects early on and have to learn who is telling the truth and who is lying... only to discover that all suspects did it together.

The Perfect Crime

comment
The Perfect Crime: In "Working Stiffs", a lowly office drone makes a seemingly perfect get rich quick scheme. He manages to get the unbreachable safe open, but is crushed against the wall by a piece of it that comes flying at him. Upon seeing he actually succeeded in doing the impossible, his last words are "I knew it would work..." Played straight whenever they don't get the perp, though special mention goes to "Alter Boys" (the team knows for sure that the actual killer is not the man arrested but his Evil Twin, yet every bit of evidence points to the former), an ep with one of the most remarkable Downer Endings in the show. Subverted in "The Unusual Suspect" where the crime itself wasn't perfect - but the accused's genius 12 year old sister exploited reasonable doubt and double jeopardy protections to effectively get her brother to be found not guilty, despite the fact that he actually committed the crime. Effectively and literally allowing her brother to get away with murder, by not only confessing to the crime herself on the stand, not only having the means and the motive, but also producing enough evidence that she could've murdered the victim herself. Before both of these was "Organ Grinder", in which the perps were a tag-team of Black Widows who would go from state to state, one of them marrying wealthy men for their money and the other poisoning the husband, with the roles flip-flopping every other kill. They would then meticulously destroy all evidence so that the only thing investigators would have on them would be their own testimony... and then each flip on the other, forcing the authorities to let them go. They end up being the first perps on the show to get away completely scot-free (not counting Millander, who is brought down later on). In an interview, the episode's writer said she realized this was a huge Anticlimax, and if she had the chance to write it again she would've had one kill the other and go down for it.

Inconveniently Vanishing Exonerating Evidence
 CSI / int_d78d5f96
comment
Inconveniently Vanishing Exonerating Evidence: In the episode "Who Shot Sherlock", it's set up to make it look like the victim did this by attaching a gun to a piece of surgical tubing. It turns out the killer did this to make it look like a suicide set up to look like a murder. In the same episode, Sanders mentions that the families of suicides will often hide the gun to avoid the stigma. One of the many fallouts in the two-parter "A Bullet Runs Through" comes from the cops apparently shooting an unarmed suspect; it turns out that the cop turned around and saw him with a gun just as he was moving to throw it, meaning it was thrown on a roof as he was shot. In the episode "Homebodies" a man attempts to disguise his suicide as murder by tying balloons to the gun so it floated away.

Ship Tease
 CSI / int_dcb9c541
comment
Ship Tease: Grissom and Catherine playfully flirt with each other and it never goes anywhere. To wit: Grissom, when Catherine returns from Miami in which she helped investigate a case there, "I missed your tush". The "How can I help?" scene (see above for details). There have also been hints towards possible Nick and Sara - Word of God states that Sara's phonecall at the end of "You've Got Male" was originally intended to be to Nick, and they have had moments of reciprocated flirting. Likewise, Catherine and Warrick, to the point where Catherine is upset to learn of Warrick's marriage and even outright comments on losing the dream. Grissom and Heather could also fall under this as it is never outright confirmed that anything happened between them. Heavily implied, yes, but always in a way that, taking Grissom as being Grissom, could have a perfectly innocent explanation. There were hints here and there for Greg and Sara as well, especially during her time mentoring him in the fifth season. A notable example comes from the episode "4x4": Grissom and Sara themselves in the first season. Although that was a Rule of Drama moment, as Sara was setting him up for her rationale for taking their current case personally: that if they slept together, then he would know how serious her nightmares were regarding the victim.

Gambit Pileup: The crime of the week in "Suckers" is a very good example: it's an Insurance Fraud concealed within a faked Oceans Eleven-style heist that had a faked murder as a distraction. Grissom even points out to the mastermind (the hotel's manager) that there is not enough evidence to convict him, but they will send it all to the insurance company regardless in the hopes that it will be a Pyrrhic Victory.

Quip to Black: The CSI examples are famous. Grissom started the trend, but, to be fair, it was CSI: Miami that took it to a (much cheesier) new level. Averted in one early episode where Grissom makes a quip, the musical cue for the fade happens, but is suddenly interrupted by Grissom's cell phone, informing him of another case to handle. At that case's location, he makes another quip with the cue, and his phone rings again. At this third crime scene, Grissom doesn't even bother making a quip, and the show fades into the theme.

comment
Disaster Dominoes: In "Chaos Theory", the solution to an apparent kidnapping, murder and disposal of a body in the dumpster turns out to be nothing but this, and therefore not a murder at all. A college girl accidentally dropped an object through the garbage shut, went to the pail to retrieve it, a speeding car accidentally hit the pail, which injured her and caused her to fall inside, then her body was compacted and brought to the dump by the garbage truck. The episode ends with the victim's family being incredibly upset by the revelation and announcing that they will hire a P.I. to uncover the "real" murderer. In "Random Acts of Violence", Warrick becomes convinced that the murderer of his Old Mentor's daughter is his High School Bully All Grown Up, but all evidence pointing to him is circumstancial and he's released. When Warrick tracks him down to berate him, he is followed by his mentor, who beats the guy up, and gets himself arrested and charged with assault. This causes the neighborhood to close the facilities where the mentor coached local troubled kids and to disband their football team, implicitely making all those kids get into trouble later. It turns out that while the bully stole from the mentor's home, he was actually innocent of the murder.

Ambiguous Disorder: Gil Grissom is all sorts of quirky and odd, a bit too literal, not exactly social, but not exactly unsocial either, kinda fumbling...how much so, it just depends on what the script calls for.

From the Latin "Intro Ducere": It had one when Grissom investigated the death of a man who had Down's syndrome. After catching the murderer, Grissom calls back to an earlier conversation where the murderer called the victim a "retard" (Grissom corrected him, of course) and informs him that "retard" means "to hinder", so the killer's life "just got retarded".

Rising Water, Rising Tension: In "Lady Heather's Box", Lindsey is trapped in a wrecked car in slowly rising flood waters and Catherine has to race to locate and rescue her. Part two of Sara Sidle's Tension Conga Line at the hands of the miniature killer in "Living Doll"/"Dead Doll" Left abandoned in the desert, with her arm pinned under an overturned car, she's first threatened by a Coyote which takes a keen interest in her exposed arm, before being chased away by an impending storm - which results in a flash flood, causing this. Only for Sara to escape the car (thanks to the flood shifting the vehicle's weight and freeing her arm), resulting in her being lost in the desert, and almost dying from heatstroke/dehydration. All the while, the CSIs and police are desperately trying to find her.

Absentee Actor
 CSI / int_f1577617
comment
Absentee Actor: William Petersen's absence in a series of episodes brought in Liev Schreiber as Petersen took a break from CSI while he starred in a play called Dublin Carol, a twist on Dickens' A Christmas Carol in Providence, R.I. The episode "Gum Drops" was changed when Petersen left town due to a death in the family. The focuses of the episode changed from Grissom to Nick being certain Cassie was alive. "Genetic Disorder" was changed from a Nick-centric episode to a Greg-centric one when George Eads left town for his father's funeral. On "Gum Drops", given what Nick himself had been through and how he could empathize with her plight, this change was probably an improvement. "Genetic Disorder" becoming Greg-centric can be seen as an improvement as well, as it shows how much Greg has matured as a person and as an investigator over the past decade. He ultimately refuses to jump to conclusions, waits to get official results, and calls other characters out for assuming Doc Robbins is guilty of something (Hodges and Brass). Compare this to a season 1 episode where Greg actually does jump to a conclusion about a couple, and he is found wrong about it.

It's implied they were already partners for the GHK murders and that the wealthy twin is using the "copycat" crime scenes to spring his brother. Additionally the elaborately staged crime scenes have hidden Gemini symbols (spots of blood and threads made of human body parts form the constellation, two crimes scenes are on properties belonging to sister companies named after Castor and Pollux).

Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Dr. Raymond Langston (played by Laurence Fishburne) replaces Grissom in Season 9, though not in terms of position. Riley takes Sara's place. Ray Zig Zags the trope. Being the new guy, he's not the Team Dad that Grissom was, but does take over Grissom's role of the older, sheltered, quiet, intellectual guy. DB Russell plays it a bit straighter. He's quirky like Grissom, has the Team Dad element about him, and has some of the sense of humor at times.

Murder Is the Best Solution
 CSI / int_f6b30338
comment
Murder Is the Best Solution: The whole franchise is loaded to the gills with people that get a bit too driven with their desire to take out an obstacle (accidentally or not). To provide some examples: "Cats In The Cradle": An eleven-year-old girl being denied one cat from the local Crazy Cat Lady (who doesn't want to part with it, even after the kid points out she has a dozen and it's not as if the cat will be taken far away because they live on the same block) drives the kid to bash the woman's brains in and be completely unapologetic about it. "Who Shot Sherlock?": A member of a Sherlock Holmes LARP fan club gets angry that the club's president and Sherlock Holmes player, out of narcissism and a desire to stop playing, will dissolve the club and refuses to allow anybody to keep it active without him — so she decides to protect the only place where she felt she could escape the tedium of her life by blowing the man's brains out and make it a Holmesian attempt at The Perfect Crime while she's at it. "Caged": A man gets so full of road rage over a woman tossing a cup of coffee at him (in her defense, he started it by nearly hitting her car and then calling her a bitch when she complained) that he chases her several miles and then uses his car to push hers right into the path of an oncoming train.

Artistic License – Physics: In the Episode "Overload", a man is electrocuted because somebody drove a nail through his rubber soles, circumventing the insulation. So far, so good - but then Grissom explains that you are safe from lightning in your car, because tyres are made from insulating rubber.

Follow the Leader
 CSI / int_fc451ba4
comment
Follow the Leader: The show precipitated a host of forensic science shows, even to the point that shows not inherently about forensics now spend more time on the subject (e.g. the medical examiner on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).

Beware the Nice Ones
 CSI / int_fccd06b6
comment
Beware the Nice Ones: D.B. is usually a pretty nice, easygoing, sometimes funny guy. But threaten his family or his CSIs and you will definitely regret it.

Accidental Murder
 CSI / int_fd497706
comment
The post-"Fannysmackin'" arc regarding Greg's Accidental Murder of Demitrius James in the defense of a man he and a mob were beating up has Sanders trying to defend himself in court and, overall, what looked like an open-and-shut case (Greg saw the crowd, he tried to scare them off with his car, James tried to attack instead, he hit him with the car because he couldn't brake in time, it's all clear) turns into a circus of accusing Greg of alleged Police Brutality, racism and even the possibility of having been a Drunk Driver during the act (thus ending with the James family forming Irrational Hatred for cops in general and Greg in specific) because of a jackass juror that wishes "all of the facts being brought to light" and won't vote until he hears them (even interrupting testimonies to question the witnesses).

comment
Brick Joke: Each CSI game comes with 5 cases. For every 5th case, a suspect from an earlier case who was later deemed innocent shows back up again, and usually turns out to be heavily involved with the current case, or is the actual murderer.

Shown Their Work: More often than you think; it's the editing that turns it into Hollywood Science. All the equipment in the CSI lab is fully operational. There's also the episode involving a not!Star Trek convention, which is filled with references, including the Picard Maneuver. The shirt-tugging one.
