We've just opened CSIFiles.com, a new fan site dedicated to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: Miami.
Are you a fan of Gil Grissom and his team of forensic scientists? Did you start to follow this year's new series about the adventures of Horatio Caine in sunny Southern Florida? If so, we hope you'll take a look at CSI Files, where you'll find many of the things we also have here at the Trek Nation, but then for CSI. We've got daily updated news at CSI Files, discussion boards at Talk CSI, and extensive episode guides for both CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: Miami.
To give you a taster of what you'll be able to find at CSI Files, here's a list of the most recent news items we posted at the site:
- CBS CEO: No New Spin-Off Planned Yet
CSI: Miami is featured on the cover of this week's TV Guide, and the magazine includes an article speculating there may soon be a CSI: New Orleans. But CBS president Les Moonves was quick to deny the rumours - although he did reveal three CSI-like shows are in development at his network, including Expert Witness, Cold Cases, and a show described as "JAG meets CSI."
- First "Dispo Day" Plot Details
We provide the first plot information about next week's CSI: Miami episode, in which the Miami police's Internal Affairs bureau starts an investigation into Horatio Caine's forensic science team. "Dispo Day" will air next Monday, the 10th of March.
- 'CSI: Miami' In Solid Start To Reruns
Last Monday CBS showed a repeat of the CSI: Miami episode "A Horrible Mind", but the show still managed to score a 9.7/16 rating. With this rating, it beat shows such as Meet My Folks and Miracles, and helped CBS win the night.
- No Vegas/Miami Rivalry, Says Petersen
Despite rumours to the contrary, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Star said there's no rivalry between the original CSI crew and the stars of spin-off CSI: Miami. "We're pleased those guys are doing well. It's always nice to be the only guys on the block. There's just a lot more guys on the block now."
- Producers: We Wanted 'Miami' To Be Different
Last weekend, the producers of CSI: Miami spoke attended a panel session at the 2003 William S. Paley festival. Executive producer Ann Donahue said the producers decided not to make CSI: Miami a carbon copy of its predecessor, despite a directive from CBS president Les Moonves that he wanted them to stick to the original formula. "Leslie told us he wanted a clone. We knew we couldn't do a clone, because everything has its own beauty."
