* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Creator/DakotaFanning had her first on-screen role as a young survivor of a family massacre [[spoiler: and parental sex abuse]].
** Creator/KimCoates plays a former porn star in a season four episode
** You may remember Archie as [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Kai the Blue Ranger]].
** Cordelia, Darla and Fred from the Buffy-Angelverse have all been on various episodes. So has Andy Umberger, who played more minor roles on both shows.
** Speaking of Buffy... [[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Callisto]] cleaned up her act and is now a dentist by day -- and biting fetishist by night. Guess what her [[ScreenName SN]] is?
*** [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors She has a talent for causing things pain. She'll be a dentist. People will PAY her to be inhumane]].
** [[Film/BackToTheFuture Jennifer Parker]] will succeed Cat Willows.
** Apparently, [[Series/{{Cheers}} Sam Malone]] and [[Series/{{Frasier}} Roz Doyle]] got married.
** [[Series/DueSouth Ray Vecchio]] is in Vegas now.
** [[{{CSI NY}} Danny Messer must have been undercover during season 3. And let's not even talk about what Adam was doing...]]
** GinaTorres from ''Series/{{Firefly}} is Warden Hutton.
** An early season one episode has David Kaufman as a murder suspect. [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Maybe he was just fighting ghosts at the time]]?
** Scott Wilson, who played Sam Braun, is even more well-known nowadays as Hershel in ''Series/TheWalkingDead''.
** Both [[TheOffice Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski]] have appeared as one-off characters.
** A very young JennetteMcCurdy appears in an episode.
** Sierra and Mr. Dominic from {{Series/Dollhouse}} appear as minor characters.
** [[KateeSackhoff Starbuck]] has a recurring role as Detective Frankie Reed.
** In the finale, [[Series/FakingIt Karma Ashcroft]] shows up as a junior CSI (and Catherine's daughter!), and Doug Hutchison also appears. [[spoiler:Of course he did it. As one finale recap said, "If you’ve ever seen Doug Hutchinson (sic) in anything, this was the end of the mystery."]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the first few video games, many actors from Creator/TheOceanGroup play supporting roles. In most of the later games, Catherine Willows is actually [[{{Anime/Robotech}} Millia Fallyna]].

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A fourth CSI series was considered before {{CSI NY}} had ratings problems. It would have taken place in either New Orleans (another reason why the series never came to be, as Hurricane Katrina hit around that time) or London (which presumably would have set a new record for number of cast members being a FakeBrit).

* YouLookFamiliar: Four of the franchise's primary actors (the ones in the opening credits) have appeared on all 3 series (there may have been more with the one time guest stars, a lot have done at least two) Lawrence Fishburne, David Caruso, Gary Sinise and Carmine Giovinazzo. But only characters Ray Langston, Mac Taylor and Horatio Caine have been on all 3 series since Carmine's guest appearance on the original CSI was 2 years before he began playing his ''{{CSI NY}}'' character. WordOfGod says the guest role didn't influence the CSI NY casting.
** Marlee Matlin appeared in a role each in CSI and CSI NY.
** A.J. Buckley, who plays Adam on CSI New York, appeared in one episode of the original CSI series beforehand. [[spoiler: He's the killer.]]
** Fans of both XenaWarriorPrincess and Firefly may recognize Lady Heather as a rogue Amazon and brothel madam, respectively.

* HarsherInHindsight: Two episodes (so far) from Season 15 -- "Bad Blood", about a virus scare, and "Girls Gone Wilder" featuring a mass shooting -- aired around the same time as Ebola scares in [[http://abcnews.go.com/Health/ebola-america-timeline/story?id=26159719 Dallas, Texas]] [[http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/24/health/new-york-ebola-timeline/ New York City]] and mass shootings in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_shootings_at_Parliament_Hill,_Ottawa Ottawa]] and [[http://www.cbsnews.com/news/washington-state-school-shooting-victim-tweets-message-of-forgiveness/ Washington state]]; coincidentally both episodes were preempted by long football games.
