CSI: Cyber

Critics Consensus

While stocked with impressive talent, CSI: Cyber fails to add anything truly new to the franchise, settling for a slightly modernized twist on the same typical crimefighting scenarios.

Tv Season Info

Agents with the FBI's Cyber Crime Division investigate illegal activities on the Internet in this high-tech procedural drama. Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette), a noted behavioral psychologist, heads up the unit. She's aided by a former marine (James Van Der Beek), two former black hat hackers, and a computer security expert. The team is tasked with solving cyber theft, hacking, sex offenses, murders and other crimes that originate on the Internet. Cases in Season 1 include a coordinated Wi-Fi attack on planes, a man's death due to buying medicine from a hacked ad on a medical Web site, and a power outage in Detroit that is used to mask a jewelry store robbery and homicide. Peter McNichol, Charley Koontz, Shad Moss and Hayley Kiyoko also star.

Critic Reviews for CSI: Cyber Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (19)

All this "Cyber" world is Arquette's stage, and all the men and women merely players.

Top Critic

Thank goodness Patricia Arquette just won an Oscar, because otherwise I'd really have nothing to say about "CSI: Cyber."

Mar 5, 2015 | Full Review…

It's all too familiar -- and a waste of an Academy Award winner.

Mar 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Patricia Arquette just won an Oscar for "Boyhood," so it's unfortunate that she's the worst thing about CBS' new CSI: Cyber. Well, maybe not the worst thing. The dialogue Arquette is forced to deliver is the worst thing.

Mar 4, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Essentially, if you've enjoyed the basic CSI formula up to this point, CSI: Cyber should not disappoint, and maybe you can change your passwords while you're watching.

Mar 4, 2015 | Full Review…

Name aside, "Cyber's" pokey and old-fashioned, but the leads are the big draw.

Mar 3, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

CSI: Cyber is just another formulaic police procedural.

Jul 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Fans of CSI shows will likely warm up to this latest franchise extension and viewers of more character-driven, less preposterous drama will ignore it like they have past CSI shows.

Mar 4, 2015 | Full Review…

The worst part of CSI: Cyber might be the disconnect between its absolutely stale presentation and the supposed cutting edge subject matter.

Mar 4, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Though the cases are built around cutting-edge high-tech threats, everything else feels as stale as week-old bread.

Audience Reviews for CSI: Cyber: Season 1

    I love the show. I like the ideas how technology can change how crime can be done. Great Cast want more of this. I hope they have another 5 seasons and more. Tried to give 5 star and the system would only let me do 4.5.

    Love the show!!!!!!!
  • Mar 01, 2016
    The dialogue between the characters isn't genuin, Patricia Arquette's wasn't a good choice, the show is cliched and repetitive, the narrative is in the most part of the time predictable and it isn't original.

    A poor TV show. Bad acting, scripting and overall performance of the cast make this a major miss in my opinion. While it has its moments, trying to be funny and emulate the success of shows like NCIS and limitless, it ultimately fails. The special effects are good, and the team behind it should be congratulated on their efforts on this train off the rails.
  • Feb 03, 2016
    I LOVE this show! They better not cancel it. It's so much better than all the regular CSI's because it's not all about the grossness of each death or about the fake panning to csi science lab blood sample analyzing. I love the tech stuff. I also love the cast! Do NOT CANCEL!!!! I don't know who these people are giving bad reviews but they have no idea what they're talking about.
  • May 18, 2015
    This show is painful to watch. I want to watch it as I was a fan of the original. These characters are simple copies of otherr similar shows which we are expected to care about without actual screen value. We aren't invested and will not become invested when we aren't given a chance to get to know and care about the charracters. The characterr development is nil and the delivery of the lines cannot be taken seriously. The spoken delivery "it could happen to you"...really?
  • May 17, 2015
    Entertaining for all the wrong reasons. I mostly watch it to see how long it takes me to spot where they get tech stuff wrong. I'm no expert, but I don't think it's lasted 10 minutes yet.
  • May 14, 2015
    Love the new spin off but don't love the leading lady for the role at all. Please re-cast a new leading lady, pretty please.
  • May 13, 2015
    Actually ... this version of CSI is really good, proving that the critics suck.
