Fourth Weekly Contest Winner & Grand Prize Contest Winner!! [Nov. 30th, 2009|05:53 pm]
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

pirogoeth
Today, I announce the winner of the fourth and final weekly contest and the winner of the grand prize contest!! We'll start off with the 4th weekly contest winner!

The winner of the 4th weekly contest, in which we asked, "What, in your mind, sets CSI apart from the other shows of its genre?" is...

hollowbarista!!!!!!

Their submission was: Of those the shows I have had a chance of viewing only the C.S.I franchise series has given me the pleasure of seeing romantic professionals doing their jobs with care and excellency. Do we not all love experts whatever their expertise?

Congrats! You will be contacted via private message on LJ for instructions on how to claim your prize!

----

And now, the moment we've all been waiting for! The winner of the grand prize, who will win a copy of CSI: Deadly Intent and a Nintendo Wii is...

replyhazy!!!!!!

Their submission to the grand prize contest was: Part One: Which crime scene in the online CSI: Deadly Intent game is your favorite to investigate? Which piece of evidence was the most helpful?

So far, I really enjoyed investigating the murder in the bar. Bars provide many different motives for violence -- robbery, alcohol-fueled range, personal grudges -- and the fact that it's a place where strangers gather means that the evidence might point at any number of people. I thought that the cash register was the most telling; it still had a lot of money in it, so a simple robbery was unlikely in that case.


Part Two: If you could create your own crime scene, what would it look like? Describe the victim, evidence and scene of the crime... The more thorough you are, the better chance someone will have of catching the killer and the better chance you'll have of winning!

I think a crime scene set in the workroom of a glitzy Las Vegas show would be interesting:

Scene of the Crime: back stage at a big Las Vegas show, one with dozens of showgirls. The room in question is the cluttered workshop of the costume mistress. Costumes under repair hang on the walls; a sewing machine sits off to one side; a cabinet full of thread, pins, needles and spare costume embellishments is at one end. Huge showgirl headdresses hang on the wall on wig forms.

Victim: it's the costume mistress herself! Rosanna is lying on her back behind a sewing table with her legs folded under her. She's been stabbed with the dressmaker's shears that hangs around her neck from a ribbon. She was only stabbed once, and the scissors are still stuck in her chest. Body was discovered by cleaning crew at 4 am -- the show was dark that evening.

Evidence items:
1. The scissors. They are smudged from someone holding them to stab the victim, but the fingerprints are not usable.
2. The victim is holding a measuring tape in one hand.
3. Her schedule book, which says: 3pm - Train new assistant; 4 pm - Fit Victoria with lead costume; 5 pm - Ricardo mtg.
4. Receipt for a drugstore pregnancy test is on the floor.
5. Torn note from Ricardo on her table, reading "This must STOP or there will be SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES!"

Suspects:
Megan, the new assistant. Megan is very nervous and explains she met with Rosanna at 3pm for training in how to fix feathered costumes. She admits thinking Rosanna was mean -- "All I did was tip over one tray of rhinestones my first day. She didn't have to go ballistic, we found most of them, right? I thought it was hilarious."

Ricardo, the stage manager. Has a long-running feud with Rosanna regarding costume storage. Rosanna wanted all the costumes in individual bags to cut down cleaning time; Ricardo refused as it would be too much hassle with all the costume changes in the show. Claims his note fragment was referring to Megan's prank with the rhinestones, nothing else. Says he showed up to meet with Rosanna at 5pm, but saw no one.

Victoria, new lead dancer. Victoria has just been promoted to be the lead after the previous star left the show. Rosanna was altering the costume for her and this was going to be her final fitting. Very teary-eyed about Rosanna, called her "a true friend." Says she came about 4:15 to her appointment, did not see Rosanna, and left.


I want to thank EVERYONE for participating in the grand prize contest and the 4 weekly contests! They were huge fun - I hope everyone else had fun, as well!

----

I want to say, in regards to the first weekly contest, we're still awaiting the answer from the CSI writing team. I will post as soon as I hear back. Sorry for the delay!

Fourth Weekly Contest & Third Weekly Contest Winner!! [Nov. 23rd, 2009|03:18 pm]
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

[Current Mood |pensivepensive]

Ok, so as per usual, it's time to kick off the new weekly contest - it's the last one we'll have before the grand prize winner is announced.

The winner of the fourth weekly contest will win a copy of CSI Season 9 on DVD!

The question is: What, in your mind, sets CSI apart from the other shows of its genre?

ALL submissions need to be in by Nov. 29 at 11:59:59pm Pacific Time. The rules for the contest can be found here. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with them before entering the contest!

----

ALSO, I'd like to remind you all of the Grand Prize Contest! You have until Nov. 29 at 11:59:59pm Pacific Time in order to enter the contest for a chance to win not only a Nintendo Wii but also a copy of the new CSI: Deadly Intent game!!

----

And now, to announce the winner of the Third Weekly Contest! The question for the third week was "If you had to pick one episode as your favourite, which one would it be and why?"

The winner is sithspider!!! Their reply was:

My favorite episode is "Pirates of the Third Reich" from season 6. I find it to be very well-written and acted. The story is intriguing and, even after seeing it ten times, it keeps me interested the whole time, every time. The episode actually seems shorter to me than every other episode because I get so into the story. The character development and interaction is great. Lady Heather is one of the best-written characters I can think of on TV, and in this episode we get to see a different side of her and her relationship with Grissom. It has some disturbing moments and images; not disturbing enough to be unenjoyable or to seem like they're only there for shock value, but enough to show you how twisted the situation is; not only the killer in our episode but also the entire Nazi movement and beliefs. It's a nice commentary on historical events as well as being a unique story in the modern world. It makes you feel something, but without making it too sad to bear watching. The ending scene is one of the best in TV history in my opinion, and very well-acted. I also love the fact that there are a few German phrases said in the episode. As a devotee of the German language, I found it so cool when Grissom spoke German -- and did a good job with pronunciation, too! A great episode all around.

Thank you to all who participated and I hope to see some more great submissions for the 4th weekly contest as well as the grand prize contest!!

Second Weekly Contest Winner & Third Weekly Contest Start! [Nov. 16th, 2009|10:51 am]
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

pirogoeth
Hi folks! It's time to announce the winner of the second weekly contest and kick off the next one!

First, I will pose the question for the Third Weekly Contest!

The winner of this contest will win a copy of CSI Season 8 on DVD!

The question is...

If you had to pick one episode as your favourite, which one would it be and why?

ALL submissions for this contest have to be in by November 22, 2009 at 11:59:59pm Pacific Time. The rules can be found here. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the rules before entering the contest!

----

The second weekly contest question was "Throughout the years of CSI, several characters have taken their leave from the team. Of all of them, who were you saddest to see leave and why?"

Like with the first weekly contest, we got a lot of great submissions and I hope you all continue to enter these contests!

The winner of the second weekly contest is ... echelon122!!! Their submission was:

I think for me it was Grissom. He had his odd quirks that while it made him even more socially awkward than the nerdiest kid in school, made him more endearing with each quirk. He was one of the main reasons I started to watch and enjoy the show. He never gave the impression he was smarter or better than anyone he worked with and encouraged everyone to be better at their own jobs.

He had/has a certain aura about him that puts him ahead of his counterparts on the other CSI shows. He could carry an episode and not undermine anyone else in it as well. He would always strive to be a better person and encouraged others to do so as well.


Congratulations! You will be contacted via private message on LJ with further instructions on how to claim your prize!! :)

Thank you all for participating and hope to see some great replies to this new contest!!

First Weekly Contest Winner!! [Nov. 10th, 2009|03:33 pm]
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

First off, I'd like to apologize for this announcement coming later than expected. But I'm finally here, ready to announce who won the first weekly contest, which was to ask a question you'd like to have answered by the CSI writing team!

Also, I'd like to mention that you guys made it SO HARD to pick just one as the winner! You all had awesome questions!

The winner of the first weekly contest is...

replyhazy!!!!

Their question was: Comparing what I read in the news about our local crime scene lab techs with what's shown on CSI, it seems like there is one area that's nowhere near reality on your show: workload. Have you ever thought about adding large backlogs and turnaround times to your plots in order to reflect how overworked many real life CSIs are?

Congratulations, replyhazy!!

You will be contacted via private message on LJ with further instructions as to how to claim your prize!

Thank you everyone for participating in the first weekly contest and I hope you continue to enter into the future weekly contests!

Hello.
I started watching CSI  pretty recently, but i think it's awesome. I just love how you can never predict what the outcome is going to be, and sometimes it is the most improbable thing. Like in the episode with the sky divers and the person who had a turtle dropped on his head - the outcome is unpredictable and the people the investigators interview often have interesting personalities.
I want to watch more csi,  cause i dont know that much about it yet, but unfortunately I dont get to watch tv often because of schoolwork and everything.

MOD POST: Contest for CSI: Deadly Intent... [Nov. 2nd, 2009|08:48 am]
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

pirogoeth
Hey folks!

There's a contest up that revolves around the new CSI: Deadly Intent video game and c_s_i will be participating! It runs from Nov. 2 to Dec. 1 and in that time, hopefully we'll have a lot of fun and you'll get the chance to win some stuff! There's a lot to cover in this post, so please bear with me!

Over the course of the next 4 weeks, there will be weekly contests on top of this grand prize contest, where you can win cool stuff, as well. :

The grand prize of this contest includes:

- One (1) retail copy of the standard United States version of the "CSI: Deadly Intent" video game, retail value $39.99
- One (1) Nintendo Wii gaming console, standard United States version, retail value $199.99

The total prize is worth $240!

What You Have to Do
This is a contest promoting the new CSI: Deadly Intent video game - you can play it online @ DeadlyIntentGame.com. It's important to note that you can only play once a day. Theoretically, you should have to play for at least 3 days in order to get a feel for the game and by that point, you can start formulating an answer to the grand prize question.

Grand Prize Question!
My apologies, I forgot to include this first time around. The grand prize question is a 2 parter:

Part One: Which crime scene in the online CSI: Deadly Intent game is your favorite to investigate? Which piece of evidence was the most helpful?

Part Two: If you could create your own crime scene, what would it look like? Describe the victim, evidence and scene of the crime... The more thorough you are, the better chance someone will have of catching the killer and the better chance you'll have of winning!

How to Enter
You can enter yourself into this contest by leaving a comment answering the question. The comment has to be viewable by everyone - this means you cannot submit your answer and then screen the comment!

The entries will be judged on composition and originality.

The deadline to enter is November 29, 2009 at 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

The rules of the contest can be found here. Please read over them before entering the contest!

---

For those of you who are wondering what my thoughts are on the game so far, I've played it for a couple of days, so my impression's still a little early, but here goes - the game starts off with you in the crime scene. You need to find 5 pieces of evidence before you can continue on to the next step. I've found that some of these pieces of evidence can actually be fairly hard to spot, so you have to look closely - don't dismiss anything!

After the evidence collection stage, you go onto the other steps, which includes reviewing the autopsy, reviewing the evidence, and choosing between 3 suspects. It's actually kinda fun! :)

Good luck and hope you win!
