Product Description

CSI: New York, the third incarnation of the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation franchise and the spin-off of CSI: Miami, is a crime drama about forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in The Big Apple. Detective Mack "Mac" Taylor is a dedicated and driven crime scene investigator who believes that everything is connected and for everyone there is a story. He and his partner, Detective Stella Bonasera, a workaholic and a jack-of-all-trades, share a passion for the job. They lead a team of experts amid the gritty and kinetic city that never sleeps. Their team includes Danny Messer, a Brooklyn-born investigator with rugged good looks, an unflappable spirit and a colorful family history, and Dr. Sheldon Hawkes, a reclusive coroner who walked away from a promising surgical career after the traumatic loss of two patients. Joining them is homicide Detective Don Flack, an edgy, hardcore investigator with a quick wit, impressive forensic insight and limited patience with potential suspects. Rounding out the team is Aiden Burn, a smart and sexy investigator whose chameleon-like behavior allows her to adapt to any situation at any time. These skilled investigators, who see New York City in a whole different light, follow the evidence as they piece together clues and eliminate doubt to ultimately crack their cases.

What do you get when you transplant CBS's successful franchise to the Big Apple? Cases involving sewer rats as witnesses, a victim whose head was slammed in a pizzeria oven, and murders of commodities traders, and--of course--a Red Sox fan. Fun as that may sound, CSI: NY is a bleaker, grimmer version of its Las Vegas and Miami cousins. The team is made up of a pleasantly New Yawk but indistinct cast of characters: Detective Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes), Detective Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), medical examiner Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper) and younger CSIs Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) and Aiden Burn (Vanessa Ferlito, who has since left the show). Their leader, Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise), fares better as one of the few characters in the CSI franchise to have a back story (he lost his wife in the 9/11 attacks). But the formula has always worked best by avoiding personal storylines, thus any mention of this became nearly nonexistent. Sinise may be less intense than Miami's David Caruso, but lacks the wink-wink humor of the original's William Petersen. You kinda wish the whole crew would lighten up a bit, maybe go on a company retreat or something. Nonetheless, the franchise continues its trademark zooming cameras, gruesome crimes and way-cool forensic gadgets. New York makes an intriguing backdrop, but a message for producer Jerry Bruckheimer: We're saturated now. Please don't give us CSI: Omaha next. -- Ellen A. Kim

4.0 out of 5 stars A Suspenseful and Captivating Visual Event... October 21, 2005
Crime Scene Investigation: New York (CSI) is the second follow-up of the original CSI, which takes place in Las Vegas. The first sequel to CSI offered the 60 million dedicated viewers to the initial series a location change, as the sequel is set in the subtropical Miami. However, in one episode of CSI: Miami, a cold-blooded murderer brought the investigation to New York to find the killer. This development gave grounds for another change of scenery, which gave the viewers a chance to see the nitty-gritty indifference of the unsympathetic Big Apple's criminals. The mood in CSI: NY is far grimmer and more distant from humanity than its predecessors, as the bluish tone of the photography enhances the cold and unfeeling mood of this series murderous trail.

The first disc of this set of discs offers an opportunity for the audience to experience the initial episode from CSI: Miami that sets up CSI: NY. In this episode the forensic-analyst, Caine (David Caruso) of Miami-Dade crime lab, investigates a grisly double murder, which leads them to New York. Once in New York, Caine begins to cooperate with Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) to find the answers of the callous murderer's identity, as they put their two sharp minds together to solve the crime. In the opening of CSI: NY, the discovery of a female body neatly dressed and with no visible signs of struggle, or harm, immediately sets the tone of Mac's bleak world. To further the desolated atmosphere of CSI: NY, the audience learns about Mac's late wife who died during the 9/11 attack in Manhattan, which affects his sleeping patterns.

CSI: NY has a number of interesting characters, besides Mac, such as the dedicated Detective Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes) and Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stand-Alone Spin-off October 18, 2005
I have been a fan of CSI and CSI: Miami for quite a while now, so when I heard that a third incarnation of this fantastic show was going to come out, I was excited. I found it very easy to get into CSI: NY, even more so than Vegas or Miami--I think it had something to do with the incredible cast that was assembled for New York. Gary Sinise is one of my favorite actors, and I found his character Mac to be a much more likeable lead CSI than either Grissom or Horatio (Grissom has been varying degrees of antisocial and oblivious over the seasons, and Horatio gets more than a little bit aggravating sometimes with the way he talks and stands, arms akimbo, while the other CSIs process the scene.) Don't get me wrong, I love Vegas and Miami, but New York has become my definite favorite.

I liked the fact that, in this CSI, the viewers got some of the characters' backgrounds early on, rather than waiting forever (such as the 5 season wait to find out why in the world Sarah from Vegas gets so belligerent when spousal abuse is involved). Each of the characters on New York, as with the first two shows, is unique, and they all complement each other nicely. Stella (Melina Kanakaredes) is a strong, capable woman who works alongside Mac rather than simply taking orders from him. Danny (Carmine Giovinazzo) is brash, funny, and slightly mysterious (viewers get tantalizing hints of his past, although there is still a lot left to be discovered), but there is no denying that he is a good CSI. Aiden (Vanessa Ferlito) is smart and sassy and doesn't take any crap from anyone (particularly not Danny). Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), the main detective on the show, seems like one of the team, as does coroner Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper), who becomes a CSI in the second season.

The third incarnation of the wildfire that is the CSI franchise sets up in the Big Apple of New York City which stars Gary Sinise as the head of the CSI forensic department Mac Taylor as well as his CSI fellows Stella Bonasera, Aiden Burn, and Danny Messer. The first season is shot in a somewhat austere bluish light and gives the show a far more severe appearance than it's two predecessors. The first season opens with "Blink" and gets better as it progresses. The second season which is not yet out improves on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars C.S.I. New York - The Complete First Season January 30, 2006
When CSI Producers announced another spin-off series, I have to say that I was very skeptical. So I was pleasantly surprised when I first laid eyes on CSI:NY. The strength of this series is the cast. From the first we saw Gary Sinise in the CSI:Miami Cross-Over Episode (included in this DVD set) most of us knew that this series will be a tad different from the two previous CSIs. Like Grissom, Mac Taylor (Sinise) is a bit unsocial, but he too is scientific and places the physical evidence above all. And like Caine, he is sometimes emotional, thankfully without the annoying pose and sunglasses. The other cast members are also exceptional. I particularly liked Aiden Burn (Ferlito), which unfortunately left the show in its second season. The cast is not as light-hearted as the other two CSI ensembles, but there is some dark humour here, which is actually funny most of the time. Cast aside, most of the scenes from the other CSI shows are here. Nice overviews of the city, and the 'CSI shots.' The NY version though experiments with camera techniques more often than using graphics. Were there any problems? Yes there were. The biggest is the blue tint used in filming. It is very dark at times and very drowsy at times. Good thing the producers noticed this and lightened it up by the end of the season. Another is the stylized fiction used by the shows (The CSI franchise, that is), that made ripple effects around the world. Some law schools are looking into the shows (some to learn about forensics, some to learn improper legal technicalities); defence lawyers and victims demanding for forensics similar to the show and whatnot. But in the end, I believe that the show is a bit of fact and a bit of fiction, and that I should not bother to find the fine line separating them. Read more ›
