    YiFeng: Bones is a good show, it just gets lost in the shuffle sometimes. The thing that bugs me the most about Bones is the 3-D holographic thing they have, i'll admit CSI stretches it but that is beyond belief!
    CSI is a show I have watched since the beginning, I have not stayed with all the spin-offs but when I saw the first episode six years ago, I knew I was watching something almost "magical" as far as groundbreaking new ideas go. It has even shifted people's expectations of solving crimes and has made criminals cover their tracks based on things they have learned: not leaving cigarette butts behind, using clorox to destroy DNA, etc. You gotta admit when a show affects real life situations, it is pretty powerful. Detectives, lawyers, and judges even have coined a term for this phenomenon: The CSI effect.
