Show Summary

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (also known as CSI: Las Vegas or CSI) is an American police procedural television series created by Anthony E.

The series premiered in the USA on CBS on 6 October, 2000.

CSI originally premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Thursday 23 August 2001, at 19h30. The first four seasons also aired on SABC3 and the show also began airing on DStv's M-Net HD when it became available in 2008. TopTV's Fox FX channel also began airing the series from Season 6 and DStv's Sony Entertainment Television (SONY) channel also picked it up. It also began airing on M-Net Series Showcase (simulcast in HD) from Season 13.

Season 7

Under the team's close watch Captain Jim Brass makes a full recovery from taking a bullet to the chest (at the end of Season 6), and is rewarded with a medal.

Gil Grissom comes in contact with miniature replicas of the crimes he is about to analyse via a mysterious sender who turns out to be a dangerous murderer.

Towards the middle of the season, Grissom takes a hiatus from the team. While he asks secret love interest Sara Sidle to join him, Sara honours her professional responsibilities and remains in Las Vegas.

Catherine Willows becomes the victim of her father's crooked business affairs earlier on in the season. While at a bar with Nick, one of her father's enemies drugs her and takes her back to a desolate motel room. The next morning Catherine defies lab policies and administers her own rape test.

Later in the season, Lindsey is kidnapped and the team struggles to get her back. Catherine also loses her father.

In addition to the family drama Catherine experiences, she comes up against mob-legend Mickey Dunn who she'd met briefly years back. Catherine and her team follow Dunn on his killing spree although his costume changes give the investigators a run for their money.

Greg Sanders finds himself the victim of a street gang beating. Without backup, Greg fights a gaggle of teenagers to save an innocent man's life. In the process, Greg ends up accidentally killing one of the kids. Facing legal repercussions, Greg struggles to put the fateful night behind him.

The team also deals with the new CSI onboard during Grissom's hiatus: the secretive Michael Keppler (guest star Liev Schreiber).

When he and Catherine stage a crime scene to nab their killer and fail to alert the rest of the team to their actions, Nick, Warrick and Sara voice their resentment.
