Over the years, I have been a fan of the entire CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) franchise including the original set in Las Vegas, the New York spinoff, the Miami spinoff as well as the most recent installment, CSI Cyber.
I imagine that to settle on those four successful franchises, the producers and writers must have mulled over hundreds of other ideas, some of which that just didn’t quite make the cut, even though they would have been compelling stories of investigations that many people could relate to.
Here are a few examples:
CSI: Lost Socks
CSI: Toilet Seats Left Up
CSI: Unfindable Ends of Saran Wrap
CSI: Unfindable Ends of Scotch Tape, Duct Tape and/or Masking Tape
CSI: Missing Baby Soothers
CSI: Missing Toys
CSI: Wine That Must Have Evaporated
CSI: Boardroom Bookings That Should Have Been Cancelled
CSI: Empty Printer Tray
CSI: Furry Things in the Vegetable Crisper
CSI: Cat Toys in the Fridge
CSI: Cat Toys in the Neatly Folded Pile of Clean Clothes
CSI: “Gifts” From the Cat
CSI: Empty Paper Towel Roll
CSI: Empty Toilet Paper Roll
CSI: Misplaced Glasses (NOTE: only one episode, which ends with the protagonist finding them on his head)
CSI: Foods Eaten in the 24 Hours Prior (which takes place in only one scene, the bathroom)… With crossover episodes to CSI: Things Eaten After Their Expiry Date
CSI: Car Keys
CSI: Car Noises That Mechanics Can’t Hear
CSI: Office Fridge
