5.0 out of 5 stars Still going strong, November 11, 2005
This review is from: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Season 5 (DVD)
The fifth season of C.S.I. saw the innovative series continue to be a ratings juggernaut, despite the fact that some believed the show's quality would dwindle with two spin-off's on the air as well, the original C.S.I. saw the show still going strong. In quite a few of these episodes, Gil Grissom (William Petersen) takes a bit of a back seat as more focus is put on the newly promoted Nick (George Eads), as well as former lab rat Greg (Eric Szamada) who is now in the field with the rest of the crew. We are given more glimpses into the personal lives of the characters than we have in previous seasons, even though it doesn't always work for the better. However, the second half of the season is simply superb, including an investigation in a mental facility which may prove fatal for Sara (Jorja Fox), an investigation into a college stud's mysterious demise, and of course, who can forget the epic season finale? Self confessed fan of the show Quentin Tarantino writes and directs the two part season finale, in which Nick is kidnapped and buried alive, and Grissom and co. race against time to save him. The finale is worth owning this season box set for alone, and it is undoubtadly one of, if not the, best episodes in the show's entire history. All in all, the fifth season of C.S.I. saw that the show still has plenty of fuel left to keep going strong, and it reaffirms that this is still the best prime time crime saga on network TV today.
