this review refers to the first six seasons of the show,since i have not seen the seventh.CSI:Las Vegas has consistently,since season 1 episode 1,remained of high quality.each season has been as good as or(usually)better than the previous.with the introduction of CSI:Miami and then CSI:New York,it was thought by many that the original would lose quality as stories has to be found for all 3 shows.However,that has not happened as of yet.the original CSI could theoretically go on for years to come,since they are certainly enough stories to tell,as long as the quality writing keeps up.the same cannot be said of "Miami" and Especially "New York" as both shows seem less compelling than their parent.One almost negative thing i will say about Vegas is that it i think they may be treading dangerous ground,with how the last episode of season 6 ended.whether they follow the same path in season 7,i'm not sure.however,if they are not careful,the show could deteriorate story wise and possibly in the ratings.up to this point(season six) however,CSI:Las Vegas is one of the best shows(if not the best)on television. 5/5

Still going greatNov. 4 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
The sixth season of C.S.I. (six seasons already?) finds the Jerry Bruckheimer-fueled train still rolling. As the season opens, Grissom (William Petersen) and Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) are back in charge of the forensic teams, as this season delves a little bit more into the personal lives of the team. Warrick (Gary Dourdan) got quietly married (much to the dismay of Catherine), Nick (George Eads) is still recovering and still haunted from his traumatizing event in the previous season's finale, and Sara (Jorja Fox) has a clue about her past revealed. The bloody cases of the season involve such cases including a whacked out cult, a dead movie star, and the assorted murdered strippers, husbands, wives, etc. It's amazing that a prime time ratings darling like C.S.I. still manages to seem innovative, even though there are so many spin-offs and immitators flooding prime time using the formula that this show helped set up (the grizzled, veteran leader, the hunky ethnic guy, the nerdy, young genius, the hot girl in tight clothing, etc.). By season's end, Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) is in critical condition, and Grissom is given a hard choice to make. By the final frame of the season finale, you may be a bit stunned, which sets up the current seventh season. All in all, C.S.I. still manages to pack a punch, and it still tops the immitators in every way, shape, or form.

GRISSOM GETS A GIRLNov. 17 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
This hit series sixth season will probably be most remembered for its cliffhanging sequence in which we find out just how close Grissom is to one of his staff members. Hints are evidenced throughout the season so it's not really a surprise, but effective.
William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger seem to be less visible during this season, leaving much of the work to the talented co-stars: George Eades, Gary Dourban(whose character ties the knot); Jorja Fox, Louise Lombard, Paul Guilfoyle (exceptionally good this season); Eric Szmanda and Robert David Hall. There are some clever stories this season including takes on werewolves, eating disorders, gang killings, etc. There are also some nice guest turns from Oscar winner Faye Dunaway, Veronica Cartwright and Currie Graham. The background on forensics continues to be fascinating and even though GRAY'S ANATOMY is getting more viewers this season, there's still millions of folks still fascinated with Grissom's Gang.

Yet another season of solid entertainmentNov. 21 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
CSI Las Vegas is the show that yields the true goods and its two spin-offs have not even come close to mirroring the quality of this stellar show. Season 5 was a good season (oh, heck... all of them were great...) but Season 6 was the one with the stories that seemed to affect our favorite CSI's more than before. Nick is still recovering from his tramatic expierience being burried alive and nearly eatedn alive by bugs and throughout the first half of this season, you see the effects it all has on him. His ordeal gets tied up midaway in "Daddy's Little Girl" which also features an intriguing investigation of a young woman who seems to have really bad luck with men... as in they either die or flee...
Warick gets married and in "Bodies in Motion" what viewers suspected for a while comes into fruitation as Catherine reveals that she has fantasized about him and his marraige makes that "fantasy" null and void.
Catherine gets a little closer to her "father" even when he becomes a suspect in a bizarre mob-like murder investigation in "Kiss-Kiss, Bye-Bye" which also features a lavish performance by the stunning Faye Dunaway.
Grissom gets a blast from the past when a DOA turns out to be the estranged daughter of none-other-than Lady Heather in "Pirates of the Third Reich" and has more hard impacting moment with her before the episode ends.
Sara shines in all the episodes because she has always been so knowledgable and smart but she gets a moment to oppose Nick in "Gum Drops" when he insists that a possible victim could still be alive and Sara inists that his own kidnapping expierience may be impairing his judgement. It is one of the finer episodes of this season... and it has some pretty neat twists.
The two part "A Bullet Runs Trhough It" stood out the most for me because it is one of the most heartbreaking episodes I've seen in a while. Sophia and Brass are being investigated for the possible "friendly fire" death of one of their own and the conclusion to this stunner brought me to tears and made me feel a whole different degree of respect for bith Sophia nad Brass.
"Still Life" is another episode that hits close and hits hard. A mother believes her son has been kidnapped and when he turns up in another "loving" family... of course it would not be CSI if there weren't a few boggeling twists...
The emotional "Up In Smoke" was another stunner complete with several twists throughout... as the CSI's investigate a charred body in a chimney only to be informed by Catherine and Warick that the tenant was being investigated for the disapearance of a teenage girl nearly a year earlier. Catherine (who has always been my favorite CSI) takes this case personal as she seriously believes that this man murdered that girl.
"Rashomama" finds the CSI's investigating a murdered "mother-in-law" wat a wedding and what makes this episode shine is the different takes on what happened after Nicks car (and the evidence) is stolen. Seeing Sara's view on marraige is pretty funny... and sequence when they try to think back is hilarious as the scen seems to mesh with their views of marraige. Who knew Nick was so romantic?
Of course, the season finale "Way To Go" is another shocked as one of their own is in a life or death struggle after being shot during a hostage situation. It is a touching episode and another one that had me on the verge of tears. I really got a better feel for Brass and Grissom's friendship in this one.
So... great season... lots of good stories and this DVD set is loaded with interesting extras. Even after six seasons this show is still as potent to me and I hope it has the steam to continue on for a little bit longer. If you own the other seasons, this is certainly a plus to have with your collection. I am not at all disapointed with this purchase.

The plotlines seem to be getting ever more implausible although I guess that is par for the course for a show in its sixth season. The show itself remains one of my favorites and would rate 4-5 stars. The reason for the low rating is the lack of any subtitles on the boxset and Amazon's failure to make this clear from the product description. I would have expected that English for the hard of hearing would be a given and would certainly have enhanced not just my wife's enjoyment of the series as a non-native English speaker but also my own.
