CSI in all three of its incarnations was a classic procedural, which cleverly used science and lab techs instead of weathered detectives to give the genre a new life.

While most viewers stayed loyal to the original Vegas show, I gravitated more towards CSI:NY, possibly just because of Gary Sinise. CSI Miami just looked and felt too stylized, but David Caruso’s one liners have since become memes, so who am I to judge?

All three shows started losing their appeal after the first few seasons, and the new CSI:Cyber doesn’t look like something I want to give the time of day to.
