I would love to be one of the winners of the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation – The Complete First Season on Blu-ray Sets. I have watched every episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and it is one of my favorite tv shows. I am 44 years old and a full time student working towards my bachelor degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Forensic Science and Death Investigations. Even though I know that this is a “tv” show, it really inspires me to be the best that I can be as a student and in my future career as an investigator. I believe my most memorable moments on CSI was the lost of Gary Dourdan “Warrick Brown” and William Peterson “Doctor Gilbert “Gil” Grissom”. Although I really like actor Laurence Fishburne, in my opinion there will never be anyone who can take the place of Grissom, except William Peterson returning of course. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to take part in this giveaway.
Omg I have 3 favorite memories from CSI. It starts with the pilot episode Omg when Holly (Chandra West) gets killed it just started this series off right for me I knew it was gonna turn into one of my favorite shows. Truly amazing pilot. I think I even cried. My second memory at which I definitely cried was the finale from Season 5 (Grave Danger) when the team had to find Nick (George Eads) that whole episode just i was so sad. It was so good and so scary at the same time that I just came apart. Till this day like I can’t really watch that finale because i get like that all the time. I think I’ve watched it maybe one or 2 times again since it’s aired. And my final memory is the finale from season 8 and the premiere of season 9. The way the whole team came together for Warrick. It just showed me how much I have come to care about every single character on this show. Like I love it I just love it. I don’t know how else to explain it.
I really dug the Miniature Killer episodes. I think the show’s lost something now Grissom’s gone. Warrick’s death was also very touching.
I agree that the show will suffer without Grissom. I too enjoyed the miniature killer episodes, especially since I make mininatures myself. The first seasons were some of the best.
Gil leaving the show has to be the hardest show I have ever watched. I am in paramedic school, so I miss episodes regularly now, and will have to wait for the entire series to come out on DVD to fill in the missing pieces. Losing Warrick, replacing Gil, the show has been through so many changes, but still manages to keep my attention (and is one of the few shows that can). When Kathryn found out about her dad, when Nick was buried alive, there are so many great episodes. I remain a devoted William Petersen fan, and will look forward to seeing him in some other venue. I would love to have the first season on DVD…as well as ALL the others.
I have to say one of the most memorable episodes was Gil Leaving, altho Nick being buried alive, still my favorite episode…
The reveal of Sara and Grissom.
I think that when Warrick dying was one of the best episodes there was. I am not that happy with the way the season has been going since Gill left. I think it has more to do with the writers than bringing in Ray.
I do think next season will be better and even if it’s not I will still watch the show because I love all the CSI’s but this one is still my favorite!
I would like to investigate the first season of CSI because I missed the first season!
like the minature killer series- that was very interesting to watch..the buried alive was great too
It broke my heart when Grissom left, however, they did do a fantastic job with a replacement. I think as Ray’s character develops, it will continue to be a good show.
i missed part of season one and would like to see what i missed !
I’d like to investigate season one because I love this show and watch it every week, however, I started watching it a few seasons in and never have seen the first season. Thanks.
If I win I will lock my husband in the TV room and have him watch all of the episodes!
I missed the first season and since have become an avid fan…that is why I would love to win the first season of CSI. :-)
i’ve never seen CSI, this would be a great way to get into it.
My favorite moment on the show was Gil and Sara finally getting together…what a surprise that was!
I’d love to win this prize; thanks for offering it!
I have never seen the original csi
CSI is one of my favorite TV shows.
I haven’t ever seen the first season of CSI. I bet it’s great.
I love CSI I hope I win!!
I’d like to investigate the first season of CSI because I never got to see any of the episodes of the first season
I haven’t seen the episodes from the 1st season yet, so this would be a great introduction!
I liked the miniature killer also.
two words … Lady Heather
I love CSI but I’ve never seen the entire first season so this would be a wonderful addition to our Blu-Ray collection.
I would like to investigate the first season because it was so great overall. Loved it the first time, and I know I will love it the second time!
I’m sure enough time has passed that I no longer remember anything from Season One. I’d love to start all over again.
I haven’t seen the show, but I would love to have the chance to watch it from the very beginning.
I even love it when James Caruso poses, just kidding
My dad loves this show and I would like to get it for him. Now, if only I could convince him to buy a home theater system with speakers and a Blu-Ray. Well, his b-day is coming up so you never know what he might get. He also like the old Miami Vice show. This is really nice of you to give this away. ty.
I love the episode where Taylor Swift died.
I actually have never watched CSI. Would love to start watching from square 1 to see what all the hype is about!
I love all the CSI shows. They have great storylines, great characters and keep you guessing until the very end.
I missed alot of the first couple of seasons, I would love to win this.
I’d love this for my sister. She LOVES CSI- I always watch the true crime on A&E and she always watches this:)
I don’t really think I have one specific CSI moment.
I have fond memories of watching the show with my family and just looking forward to watching it every week. I felt like it brought the family together and it was something we all liked. I would like to go back and watch the episodes and remember all the fun we had watching it.
This is one of the very best shows out there.
No favorite, I just like to watch these shows after they come out on DVD, no commercials, etc.
I have been a fan of this show since season 1. The Miniature killer episdoes were my favorite!
I’d love to win this for my son, he’s an avid CSI fan
My family loves this show. This would be a great gift for the family.
when gil started going out with one of his crew.
I’d like to see this because my wife likes the show and I am indifferent – hopefully if I see them from the beginning I will appreciate it more.
I really need this to catch up
My best memory of CSI was actually watching it in its first season, on Friday nights. I remember thinking how different of a show this was, and how much I loved Fridays because of it. But, seems like every drama on CBS is just a copycat of this show. I’d love to win this set, though!
I would love to win this since I missed a lot of the first season. I didn’t realize how much I was missing. Now, I don’t miss an episode. I think one of my favorite episodes was Warrick’s funeral. Although I hated him leaving the show, I loved how they all came together to remember him. It seemed so real, and it was a great way to say goodbye to his character.
Can you believe that I’ve never seen any episodes?
So, I need to be educated!
Oh, I remember the episode with the air hammer and one of the techs got a nail in the eye. OUCH!!!!
the early years are the best.
I can watch it again and again and again. Without commercials.
I remember some bloody crime scene in a kitchen
This would B A awesome win
I like all the episodes with Grisson and NOT featuring Sara (ick)
i really liked the episode where the guy couldn’t remember committing the murder and therefore they had virtually nothing to go off of. ALSO i would like to go through and start catching up on this amazing series.
My favorite moment was when Grissom was crossing the street, and a car approaching him honked, and he finished crossing the street without pausing to let the car pass. He realized, in the final seconds of that episode, that he needed to step down, due to his disability. I think if people would pay closer attention to details like that in real life when such things happen to OTHERS, we would all feel greater empathy to our fellow man.
I like Rex. He’s very sexy. Is that a bad thing to say??
I have never seen any CSI as I live in the mountains an am unable to get TV reception.Always wanted to see the show someday!But you should give it to Alison as she’s never seen it either and I have my music anyways!
just watching the characters develop made it happen
The first season was awesome! I’d love t re-watch it, especially on crystal clear blu ray!!
it will be a crime if I lose!
My favorite episode was the one when Nick wound up being buried and the entire team was determined to find him while at the same time being forced to watch him on a live video feed.
I would like to get the first season of CSI for my mother in Texas who doesn’t get out much so now she could start watching this series and have a “movie night with my dad since they are so used to watching separate tv’s yet they both love crime drama television.
CSI is the greatest of them all.
my favorite memory is also my saddest as it was when warrick was killed. It made both my wife and I cry to see die
CSI is one of my favorite shows, even though I really miss Gil, I still continue to watch. I would love to win this prize!!!
I would like to have CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Blu-ray,The First
Season, because I NEVER was able to view CSI: Crime Scene Investigation during the first season. Only after the first season did I hear about it, but from what I have seen so far it SPECTACULAR!!!
I missed about half of the shows would love to see them all!!!
The first season it what mad the characters the show is never dull always something new and different happens in every episode.
I love all seasons of CSI – still watch the re-runs. Love NCIS also!!
My wife is a CSI fiend ! ! I’d love to be able to win it for her.
She loves the series so much that it is on whenever she is home.
She grew attached to all the characters on the show and season one was what did it for her.
Though she watches the other two variations of the show as well (CSI: NY & CSI: Miami) she’d
always comment that the characters, storylines, and action is nothing compared to the original! !
This would be an AWESOME win!! Thanks for the chance.
I started watching after the 1st season, Gary S is the best
I loved the episodes of the miniture killer, it was interesting to have episodes that were connected & involved the same suspect that was taunting Grissom & the CSI team
I’d like to investigate the first season because my teenaged-son knows every episode by heart. He loves these shows.
love to watch all the CSI shows and this would be an awsome way to start my blu-ray collection!
I love CSI. I miss Grissom. I missed the 1st season so I would love to watch it.
we try to never miss it
I have been a fan of CSI: Las Vegas from the beginning. My favorite part of the show was the miniature killer since it was drawn out for a pretty long time and they had a lot of screen time investigating the murders. I really want to have this set because I have watched CSI so much, that I can’t even remember what episodes started out this great series.
I would love to catch up on the 1st season of csi. I just got a blu-ray player and need to start my collection!
I don’t think I’ve seen any of the first season. Thanks for the giveaway!
One of the best shows was when Nick was buried alive and they were trying to find him. It was sad that they could watch him and see him get eaten alive by ants, but could do nothing to help him.
My brother raves about what a great show this is, but I never have a chance to catch it. Now I can watch the whole season at once. Thank you for the chance to win.
I’ve only recently started watching the show, I’d like to see it from the very beginning.
I’d like to investigate it because although I’m surrounded by CSI fans, I’ve never watched it
Hi-Def autopsies. Thrilling. Please accept my entry. Thank you.
I’ve never actually seen CSI…I usually watch CSI: Miami. I do love that show and want to see this one…I just hate going into a show the 4th/5th season.
i like how futurist the show is getting, but what’s funny is a lot of the stuff they show is only a fantasy currently (holograms?? don’t think so)
Dating the corpse through maggots. Now that’s must see TV.
I would like to investigate CSI’s first season because I never get to catch any TV series in its first run. I always watch them years later as repeats on some other channel. I haven’t see CSI, the original, yet.
I really like CSI alot -so I would love to win it.
I have only discovered this show recently and I love it! I would love to see the 1st season. Thanks for the giveaway!
I have not been a regular viewer of this series, but I actually was able to catch an episode last night and it was pretty good. Would love to know things behind the reulgar characters such as why it was such a big deal that Gary Sinise’s charcter bought a new shirt.
i’d like to investigate the first season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Blu-ray because i’m one of the few people who havn’t seen this
My favorite was the pilot episode. I knew it was going to be a great series, and I was not disappointed.
My favorite memory of CSI would have to be the episode where two boys stumble upon what they thought was an alien. The episode was great because they made you think that the victim as actually an alien and made me think about intelligent life outside the universe. I was dissapointed to find out that it was actually a coverup. It still was a great episode
CSI is one of my favorite shows and I did not see much of the first season thanks
My favorite memory is watching the very first episode of this show, the night it premiered, and I was like, “wow, this show’s awesome!”
I have only seen the show a few times and I really like what I have seen so far
I’ve never seen “CSI,” but would love to win and catch up. Thanks for the chance!
One of the most memorable moments for me was Warrick Browns funeral :( (R.I.P)
(not my favorite memory…too many those to list (haha) …but certainly the most memorable!)
I actually have the equipment to play this.
My wife is ‘addicted’ to this show!
Unfortunately, I’ve never seen a complete episode!
Would love to win a copy of the ‘first season’ to do some catching up!
Please, include me in your giveaway drawing!
Thanks and good luck to all!
I love the show and my it has become a family favorite! I’d love to win the 1st season. My favorite part was the Grissom-Sara storyline! Thanks
I would love the chance to win, thanks.
I did not watch CSI from the beginning. To be able to do so without commercial interruption and in Blu-ray format would be great!
I love CSI and rarely miss a show. I domiss Gil and the show isn’t the same without him. They need to bring him back to keep the show going.
I love this show! I have so many memories which really stick out in my mind. I think my favorite episode is the one where Warrick dies. The acting of all the cast was some of the best I have ever seen. It had me crying and although it was so sad, it was such a great way to have a character leave the show. It made you feel as if you were saying goodbye to a friend and not a televison character.
When Warrick died I felt touched! I love this show and my family makes a weekly date around the TV to watch together! Opens up discussion and as a result we learn alot about each other! Great series! Thanks for the opportunity to win this!
I actually never saw the first season! I love CSI but rarely watch “the most watched show on television” when it is advertised as such. I found CSI during the second season and have watched it almost religiously since. I really liked the miniature killer storyline.
I have watched all of these shows and love this show but I was so disappointed when they took Grisson off the show but I am hoping they bring back him and Sara. I liked the one where Grissom starts to lose his hearing. This made you see there was more to him.
I just started really getting into the show so I would love to watch the DVD for spisodes I have never seen.
I started watching reruns, so I would love to see how it all started!
the csi shows are just awesome thanks for the giveway
I like to watch this show when I am feeling sick. Gives me something to do
I missed the first season, so I’d love to investigate the relationships between all the characters before I started watching regularly.
I love CSI
I like to watch all of a season at one time
favorite memory is when they went to Greece
I liked the episode where Nick got buried alive. It was scary.
I would like to investigate the first season of CSI because I started watching it in the beginning and then stopped and would love to get caught up so I can start watching again.
My favorite episode is the one where Warrick dies. Thanks so much for the contest!
I would like to win because I have never watched CSI and have always wanted to and what better way than with the first season! =)
CSI is one of my fav shows! I would love to enter and win this -would be great to add to my collection. Thanks!
I would love to own this series on DVD so I can learn the other story lines
I would love to get this for my new Blu Ray player that I won. Love CSI!
I am one of the three people in the country that hasn’t watched CSI, so this would be great so I could catch up on it from the beginning. Thanks!
I’ve been a CSI watcher since the beginning. Would love to add this to my collection.
This would be a great gift! Thanks you!
I loved the story line with the mini serial killer where the girl made mini replicas of all her murder scenes. I also hated watchin Gil leave the show. Great series. I love ALL the CSI shows.
My favorite moment on the show was Gil and Sara finally getting together.
I didn’t get to see the series. I have heard how great it was. I would love to see it on Blu-ray.
I would like see the first season—- wasn’t into it in the beginning.
Dare I admit this? I love crime investigations, and solving mysteries…. however I haven’t ever seen the show… I need this because I hear it’s great and haven’t ever been able to catch it on the TV.
OMG, the chance to win this is awesome and then on Blu-Ray? Double OMG! When Sara was trapped under the car, Nick buried alive and Grissom finding Sara in the Jungle. All heartstoppers.
my favorite part of csi was when grissom was up against the miniature serial killer and saving his co-worker (and secretly his girlfriend). I would really love seeing all the beginning episodes again.
I can’t remember the name of the episode, but it was the one where there was a chubby women’s convention in one of the Vegas hotels- and Grissom is such a gentleman ;)
It would be great to be able to watch this without the snow that we get on channel 62 (local CBS affil). Until we went digital late last year, everything was always snowy! Thanks for the chance to reminisce in crystal clear clarity!
I’d like to investigate because I’ve never seen it
I want to check out the first season because my daughter is so obsessed with this show and I need to know what all the fuss is about. It had to have been a phenomenal first season to cause double spin-offs too.
I have never seen a “CSI” show.
Missed alot due to a wacky work schedule. Would love to fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle.
i have never seen this show but im very interested in watching it :)
Not my favorite episode but unforgetable. It was called, “Getting Off”, a transvestite that turned out to be a clown.
I’d like the first season because I never saw the show from the beginning. I catch episodes here and there, but it would be great to finally get the foundation of the show. Thanks!
I am a huge fan!!I am watching the one with the little people and it is reallly good!!
I’d love to be able to watch CSI on our new blu-ray! thanks, it’s a great show :)
I’ve never watched and would like to.
I would like to have the 1st season because I never saw it when it originally aired.
love this show
My favorite memory is a happy one. Remember Hodge’s Lucky day? I still laugh whenever I hear that song!
My favorite episode was the pilot because so much was said without it being forced. I was also surprised by the sudden death of Holly which cemented me liking the show.
Any of the eppies that focus on the minor, geeky, lab tech guys. :)
We’re total addicted to CSI it really doesn’t matter CSI Miami or CSI new York; thanks SW
I would love to win this for my sister, but I would love to investigate it w/ her b/c I didn’t watch the first season and would love to see how it started!
I love this show, but it has been a long time since I have seen Season 1. I would love to relive it. I like so many episodes one of my faves is the Strip Strangler in Season 1.
My favorite were the miniatures. Very cool props, huh?
I love CSI & often watch it for hours(reruns) on A&E!
Would love to win the complete first season because the reruns are never in order & I feel like I missed bits & pieces.
we heart csi:) ty 4 the entry:)
I didn’t start watching CSI until well after the first season had finished. I work evenings and I hadn’t heard a lot about the series. When I finally started watching I couldn’t wait for the reruns so I could catch up on the early episodes. When I visit my daughter we look forward to some of the weekend marathons and we will watch every episode and sometimes we have already seen them several times before.
The most memorable episode was the loss of Warrick and the subsequent aftermath. I really wish he could have stayed on the show because it just isn’t the same without him.
The loss of Grissom is also detrimental to the program but the episode itself was not as memorable.
I loved the scenes with Grissom & Sarah together.
The Quentin Tarantino-directed “Grave Danger” was a memorable two-part episode.
I have never seen it, but I want to.
I’ve never seen Season 1 of CSI, so owning the set in the Blu-ray format would be great. I agree about the episodes involving the search for the Miniature Killer being good ones.
I would like to investigate the first season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Blu-ray because it sounds very interesting!
