The basics : Centred around cases of an LA forensics team who investigate murders. Gil Grissom and his team take fingerprints and forensic evidence from crime scenes and analyze them in the tiniest detail. Their inquiries take place in the field as well as in the lab…
Main characters: William Petersen (Gil Grissom), Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows), Gary Dourdan (Warrick Brown), George Eads (Nick Stokes), Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), Paul Guilfoyle (Capitaine Jim Brass), Robert David Hall (Dr. Al Robbins)
Why we love it: No more Starsky and Hutch detectives for us! These detectives are capable of finding out who’s guilty by analyzing half a fingerprint from a piece of glass in a suspect’s rubbish bin. It’s nailbiting stuff, and also really lifts the lid on another side to inquiries that we don’t normally see. Following the huge success of the early series, a Manhattan series and a Miami series have been created.
Watch it with: Anyone – it’s a completely new type of police series which will interest everyone.
