CSI is a television show that revolutionized US crime dramas during the 2000s. It is almost entirely responsible for the switch from older styles of shows like Starsky & Hutch or Moonlighting to a new style where forensic evidence and science are given far more screen time than interrogation or interviews. Programs like Bones show its influence. Offline, it has been blamed for a change in jury attitudes in the United States, most notably for raising unrealistic expectations about the use of forensic evidence; in the real world forensic science processes are slow and extremely expensive, and the cost of the forensic science devoted to some cases in the show would probably require most of the annual budget available to the real-world LVPD. Another consequence of the show's popularity was an unrealistic impression of the "glamour" of the job, leading to a demand for more college courses, far outstripping the actual needs of the field; at its height there were several times more students than jobs available in the field, and every job advertised received hundreds of applicants.[1]

CSI is both the name of the parent show and the name typically applied to the overall franchise, which also includes CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, and CSI: Cyber.


Many pairings between CSI franchise characters are referred to by name smooshes or fanciful pairing names.[2][3]

Otherwise we've pretty much free to ride the wings of our imaginations, so drop the reins and fly. Discussion of the show, of the fics, both in progress and after completion are welcome. Pairings have no limits, barring that of you imagination. I'm dying to see some Grissom in leather (hint).
