This article explores some of the reasons why CSI is so addictive for us viewers.
But there are a whole host of other crime dramas out there, each with their own unique take on the crime drama trope which you’re sure to love if ‘C.S.I. : Crime Scene Investigation’ gets your detective fancies tingling.
Just like ‘C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation’, NCIS uses forensic evidence as a key to solve crimes. However, rather than just everyday murders, the team at NCIS investigate politically-charged incidents relating to the navy.
Never short of an intense shoot-out or dramatic bomb unplugging, each season is guaranteed to rock you to the edge of your seat and pull on your heart strings just a little.

Richard Castle, famous novelist, uses his connections with the mayor of New York to earn a place on the homicide team at the NYPD. His role? A writer who follows the team around.
He’s doing research for his latest crime fiction novel, ‘Nikki Heat’, and needs a great deal of inspiration as well as an intriguing muse. However, Castle doesn’t quite realise that he’s dived into the very deep end when he meets Detective Kate Beckett.
Feisty, sexy and just a little scary, Beckett creates a whole load of tension in Castle’s life that he could never have anticipated.
This remake of the original ‘70s hit TV series will have lovers of shows like ‘C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation’ filled with suspense at the terrible crimes McGarrett and his team deal with on these beautiful islands.
Feuding with WoFat and his gangsters is the main aim of the 5-0 team and viewers will get utterly swept up in chasing this villain alongside all of the other nasties Hawaii has to offer.

The term ‘psychopath’ is thrown around a little too frequently these days. But when Dexter Morgan enters the frame, no other word does him justice.
Dexter is by day a forensic analyst for the Miami Police Department, and by night a forensic expert in the art of murder. Teamed up with his detective sister and the rest of the department, all of whom see him as a loveable but socially awkward lab geek, he uses his obsession with blood to catch killers.
And if the justice system can’t get them, rest assured that Dexter will find a way to give them what they deserve. This six season hit is perfect for fans of shows like ‘NCIS’ and ‘C.S.I.’, which deal with the gory topic of murder in their own unique way. This article explores why we just can’t get enough of this guy.
Let’s face it: all of the above cop drama series’ are perfect for fans of TV shows like ‘C.S.I.’. Now, however, I’m going to take you on a journey towards slightly different shows which give you similar action to ‘C.S.I.’, but take you to another universe in terms of setting.
We move from the big city to the small village and from the morgue to the hospital bed. But what we do not lose is the intensity of the drama and problem solving that are prevalent in each and every one of ‘C.S.I.’s episodes.
Despite seeming like a haven of English countryside, the fictional county of Midsomer really isn’t an idyllic place to live at all.
Full of scandal and intrigue, the villages that make up Midsomer succumb to more than their fair share of murders. But, never fear, Detective Barnaby and his assistant will be there to save the day. Without a high-tech, advanced forensic team on his side, Barnaby relies heavily on the traditional detective methods: clues, witness interviews, and his gut instinct.
Each hour-long episode will keep you gripped until the killer is revealed in spectacular fashion at the end of the show.
Dr Gregory House and his team are the doctors who deal with the impossible cases at the Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. House’s charm and eccentric nature make him a truly irresistible character.
Despite seeming overly harsh and often willing to put his patients at risk for his gain, we all know he has a heart of gold hidden somewhere. From obscure genetic conditions, to environmental disease, to severe allergic reactions, it is up to House and the gang to correctly determine why the patient is ill and how to treat them effectively.
It’s that time again – time to solve your own mystery and choose a TV show that you can’t help but get hooked on. From manipulative Dexter, to all-round good guy McGarrett, the sleuthing main characters of these shows will ensure you keep coming back for more.
So, if you want a little more thrill and suspense in your life (or just want to know how to commit the perfect crime), then catch up on some of these and let us know what you think!
