Witnessing The CSI: Las Vegas TV Show Being Filmed Before My Eyes Was Incredible

On October 17, 2012, My family and I decided to make a drive to Fremont St in Las Vegas, Nevada to go and see the light show and just stroll around. We parked our rental car and we walked to the street. Now when we were walking through the Fremont St, I noticed a huge crowd and I thought something was going on because they are barricades all around. As we got closer, I saw CSI On the chairs, at this point I was getting really excited, and I did more observing to see that Actor Ted Danson was 15 Feet away from me. I said Hi Ted! He looked and waved at me, so then afterwards, I got way to the front and We were watching the “Strip Maul” Season 9 Episode 13 to be aired November 28, 2012, and I got super excited to watch this take place, and then I saw George Eads, and Jorja Fox along with extras. This time I got really excited. Jerry Bruckheimer was also there sitting and observing and directing on what was going on. At this point, I was there for over 2 and a half hours. For a scene that takes 5 minutes or 8 minutes it takes over 3 hours to film and it looked like we had just got there when they started. It is quite interesting how they film murder scenes and how they quickly get dressed behind the scenes an come back out. Ted Danson was wearing the exact same thing when I saw the real episode last week. Because Ted Danson was in Cheers, I yelled and said “Ted, does everyone know your name?” its the theme song quote that I used and people around me were laughing and they said, that is original. Then I heard that they usually film on Fremont St and those parts of Las Vegas. Not much toward the hotels down the strip. It was incredible.  When I saw George Eads, he waved at me too and smiled. They do not look at all like how they look on TV. They look so much better in person.

Now, as they were wrapping up, Actress Jorja Fox walked right beside me to head to the other scene which was set up across the other street. It is so cool how they do the scenes. I couldn’t believe I saw Jerry Bruckheimer. He does most of the CSI: Series and he is a great director. Talk about being at the right place at the right time. Whenever your in California, Vegas, New York, Chicago, your always bound to come across a movie or TV series being filmed, but sometimes they do it all in a studio too, but it is extra awesome to see it unfold right before your eyes. I will never forget this ever in my life. Thank goodness I had taken pictures of it all and Now as I look at these pictures, It is something that I will always remember and finally say I saw these actors. Below are some pictures I Snapped while filming.
