TrekToday's sister site, CSI Files, which publishes regular news updates on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: Miami, is now entering its second month of operation. Here's the latest round-up of news from the site:
- Review: Double Cap
CSI Files reviewer Patti Vickers said this episode forced her to reevaluate her opinion of David Caruso (Horatio Caine). Here's an excerpt from her analysis:
I'm not a fan of David Caruso. In fact, his casting caused me to re-think the whole "Must watch CSI: Miami" thing. [...] In this episode, however, Caruso demonstrated why he has legions of fans. He was really good. I felt his anger when the feds stomped all over his case and I knew he truly was seeking some sort of justice for the victims.

- Bruckheimer Inks Four-Year Deal With Warner Bros. TV
CSI and CSI: Miami executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer this week extended his relationship with Warner Bros. TV through to June 2007. His association with the studio has produced CSI's Thursday-night lead-out show, Without a Trace, and several fall pilots under consideration at CBS, Fox and the WB.
- 'CSI' Leads CBS To Ratings Victory Again
The latest first-run episode of CSI, "Precious Metal", scored a 16.4 rating / 25 share in its Thursday 9:00 p.m. time slot. Although these figures were down from the ratings scored by "Crash and Burn" and the overall season average, the series still blitzed the competition, which included NBC's comedy double-bill of Will & Grace and Good Morning Miami.
- Consultants Talk Scientific Accuracy
David Berman, a researcher for CSI and CSI: Miami, and consultant Dr. Gregory Schmunk spoke about the need for each episode to be scientifically plausible. "People aren't stupid," Berman said. "If something feels phony, it's a big turnoff." Schmunk, whose day job happens to be Santa Clara county coroner, said he doesn't get paid for advising the shows writers. "But I do get hats," he quipped.
- First 'Forever' Plot Details
Sources revealed Grissom and Catherine will investigate the murder of a high-society horse trainer aboard a private jet in this upcoming episode. The show's B-story is said to revolve around the Romeo and Juliet-style suicide of a pair of teenagers.
