5.0 out of 5 stars The (Semi) Final Season..., October 23, 2011
This review is from: CSI: NY: Season 8 (DVD)
The eighth season of "CSI: NY" opens with Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Siniese) absent from the CSI Lab, on a DNA ID project associated with the 9/11 attacks, while Jo Danville (Sela Ward) is acting head of the CSI lab, and newly-promoted police sergeant Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) is working the streets as a uniformed cop. However, viewers need have no fear; the CSI Lab crew will be reunited within a few exciting episodes.

An early highlight of the season was a tasteful tribute to the 9/11 anniversary, as the characters discuss where they were when it all happened. Mac Taylor sheds some light on the fate of his long missing wife, while assisting an emotionally-damaged fellow public servant to face the day. A mid-season multi-episode thriller involves a case from Jo's past with the FBI, a serial rapist who resurfaces in NYC with disturbing consequences. In late season, Mac Taylor will hestitantly consider a relationship with a woman from his past as a police officer.

"CSI: NY" continues to provide its exciting blend of case-of-the-week criminal investigation in the unique environment of New York City, while delving into the lives of its characters. Mac Taylor will have to make a difficult decision on returning to the lab, displacing Jo Danville, who will find an ocassion to tell Mac that she adores him. Danny Messer runs afoul of Internal Affairs while on the streets, and wonders if he can remain a cop at all. Detective Don Flack (Eddie Cahill) will try to reconnect with a troubled sister. Medical examiner Dr. Sid Hammerback (Robert Joy), Detective Lindsey Monroe (Anna Belknap), Detective Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper) and lab rat Adam Ross (A.J. Buckley) all get a little time in the spotlight as the season wraps up. The season finale, a highly effective and moving episode, was filmed before the cast and crew knew they had been renewed for a ninth season. Highly recommended to "CSI: NY" fans.

I would be guessing, but probably it won't be released until summer. They are still in active production for the current season.

The move to Friday and being the lead-in for "Blue Bloods" apparently has helped the ratings for "CSI NY." I see speculation online that it might squeeze out another season.

As yet CBS doesn't confirmed the eighth Season will be the last. The site TV by the Numbers puts the Show on a "Toss-Up for Renewal" but it doesn't mean anything. I'm still hoping a ninth Season (To date only CSI: Las Vegas has been Renewed for a 13th Season).

We can hope. It isn't very often that shows survive a move to Friday, but it can happen.

As of 23 April, the ratings don't look good enough for another season. The producers have promised a good season finale that may have to serve as the series finale.

***Spoiler Alert*****
The season (and possibly series) finale aired on 11 May. An attack placed Mac in a near-death situation, in which he reviewed his relationships with the people in his life, especially his co-workers. The rest of the cast was involved in solving the attack on Mac as the crime of the week. The ending was nicely handled, a decent wrap-up of the season, and if need be, of the series.
