I've just purchased CSI NY season 5, and I am thrilled. Each season's episodes of the show get better & better. The quality of the scripts and the great actors are what make a dvd set for me. Like most people, I really don't care whether there are Bonus Features or Special features. Sure, they're nice to have, but I don't buy a dvd for that! I love this show more & more each year & I guess most tv viewers agree with me, because this show is in the top 20 in ratings every week!!! Keep them coming!!!

Killers using avatars to lure people to their doom. A runner shows up at a firesale on wedding dresses and ends up dead from a simple push. A Nazi selling family heirlooms from the Holocaust. The fifth season of CSI:NY continued to have fascinating, challenging stories and changes that would effect the characters personally. This remains my favorite of the "CSI" shows (I dislike the overwrought "CSI: Miami" compared to the more down-to-Earth "CSI: NY" but that's me. When David Caruso takes off his sunglasses and throws out those snappy one-liners it reminds me of a bad Shatner moment).

We have a crew of great guest stars including Ed Asner in an uncharacteristic role (at least this late in his career although he might have played this type of role earlier in his career before "Mary Tyler Moore" and "Lou Grant"--which by the way where IS "Lou Grant" on DVD?).

The fifth season looks quite good although there is a noticeable video noise on a number of episodes but, not a surprise, given that there are four episodes on eath DVD. The one issue I have with the fifth season is the lack of commentary tracks. I realize it doesn't matter to everyone but when I watch an episode for a second or third time I like to hear the behind-the-scenes drama/issues that the production crew have.

We get a number of solid extras here which fans will enjoy but I hope that Paramount/CBS will resume including commentary tracks for the next season.

The feel here is totally different from the mother series--CSI. Gary Sinese and ALL the cast are great, and really come together as a unit. Very original stories. Purchased through Amazon. Highly recommended.

I don't watch CSI but I purchased this episode to watch Alex Band to see if his acting is as great as his singing. Well, honestly I can only say he was ok. Think he just needed a better role to play.

The characters of this version of CSI have not only proven themselves over and over, but managed to take the third outing of the CSI franchise and make it not just another CSI series but their own series. They have their own story lines other than the crimes they solve. They have personality, twists, and a rock solid footing. Season 5 is no different. If anything, season 5 takes the story lines to a new level exploring the relationships of the characters much more deeply. ****** Spoiler**** There is an issue of pregnancy between two of the main characters, issues of with Mac Taylor and his relationship with his superiors, an issue with Stella and her roots, and the list goes on. (Fans of Stargate SG1 may see a familiar face in the Stella situations.) These situations further the bonds all of these characters share. Only to strengthen their relationships with one another. ****** Spoiler alert over ****** Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes are the two main characters, but they share the spotlight equally with the whole cast of this magnificent show. All in all, I found this a very enjoyable season. My only complaint was that I could not get my hands on season 6 fast enough to see where the writers took these characters next. My second complaint would be that this show is very very addictive, as my daughter has said over and over "You and your CSI!" Nuff said. If you are a serious video nut like I am, I highly recommend not only this season but all of the seasons of CSI: NY.

Ralph.

CSI-NY is still getting better, is still somewhat "too analytical" on occasion, but has the best cast of characters of all the CSI's. A big improvement on the characters and their interactions on a personal level, and the camerawork make these moments heartfelt. CSI-NY goes over the top on lab technology, probably envied by the Vegas and Miami lab rats who are lagging behind slightly on acquiring the latest space age equipment! Plus, the city is always in motion, adding to the excitement of the weekly dramas.

This was one of my favorite shows. Too bad it went off so soon. Especially after the lead female actor changed.Love, love, love Gary.
