The newest CSI spin-off takes the format of the show to cyber investigation instead of the boring DNA and blood sampling and awes and spooks audience on their cyber habits

When the newly awarded Oscar winner, Patricia Arquette puts herself in on a project, it is sure to catch some attention. Especially with a show like CSI that veered TV entertainment to procedural cop shows. The show managed to shoot off two successful spin-offs in Miami and New York. 

The producers and network might have thought it was time to take it up a notch and set the trend a little higher. From ballistics to blood work to residual DNA and fiber prints and the different combinations of the above mentioned with a peculiar footage or a note comprised of the evidence. The evidence to solve the case and catch the culprit. The shows are still running successfully in their own manner as the creative teams come up with new ideas each season for a crime to happen. 

But it comes to a point where certain predictability plays into the format of the show. To give the show a new life, you definitely have to put in new lives into it and also take away a few. The newest version of CSI is ultra cool.

With a whole new team and whole new format, CSI: Cyber lives up to its name. The newest FBI team features Patricia Arquette as Agent Avery Ryan. A behavioral psychologist whose patient was killed after his information was hacked from her computer comes in contact with the FBI during their investigation to form a new working team with Simon Sifter played by Peter MacNicol.

Simon is quirky in contrast to the other member of the team Elijah Mundo (James Van Der Beek) who provides enough eye-candy for the ladies. The trio is further joined by the kiddies i.e. snarky tech nerd Daniel Krumits (Charley Koontz), Raven (Hayley Kiyoko) and newbie Brody Nelson (Shad Moss, a.k.a. rapper Bow Wow). Each of the characters has a shady back story with a lot of referring to the black hat and white hat operations.

The tech community knows the difference but if you don’t, just know that the black hats are the good guys and white hats just seem to be working under the FBI. The show also includes a lot of graphic and tech vocabulary so if you plan on becoming a fan of the show, you might want to brush up on your tech language. 

The first episode is a case about a baby abduction which is captured by a video baby monitor and our newest team gets down searching for the baby. Not by investigating the crime scene for fingerprints or hair but by tracing the culprits via tech sources like email, social network and cyber activity. That’s the part which leaves you awestruck and spooked out. Awestruck that cyber habits can be helpful in finding criminals, spooked that your cyber activity is not safe. Change your passwords all you want people.

This show is going to reveal all the ways your cyber information is not safe and at the same time convince you that as long as you are not committing a crime, your cyber territory is safe and the white hats will use their hacking powers for good and justice shall prevail.

CSI also set its eyes on breaking the Doctor Who record by declaring March 4 the ‘WORLD CSI DAY’ and will embark on a global effort for CSI to break the Guinness World Records Achievement for “Largest Ever TV Drama Simulcast.” The event hopes to celebrate 15 years of the CSI franchise, one of the biggest and most successful in the world, and the U.S. premiere of CSI: CYBER.
