Much better than Season 1, and remains the Best CSI of the complete CSI franchise,
This review is from: CSI: New York - The Complete Second Season (DVD)
CSI:NY has been going on for the past 3 years and still ramains my favourite show ever. Season 2 is much better than season 1. more violent, better cases and much more exiting. set in the the great city, New York with crimes happening here and there. CSI: NY to me is the best CSI of all three CSI shows and the best crime show. I can't wait for season 3 on DVD.
"CSI: NY" has several good things going for it compared to the other "CSI" shows. First off, it is fast paced. From the opening moments you're thrown right into the story and it never lets up until the end. That keeps things from ever dragging out unnecessarily. Second, you're able to jump into any individual episode without having seen any other episodes. However, they still manage to give some characters more personality and running storylines through several episodes. This makes them a little less wooden than some of the characters on other "CSI" shows. Finally, the cast is one of the best of the three shows. Gary Sinise is one of my favorite actors and it's always a pleasure to see him in the show, especially supported by a strong cast. This year adds a new face to the mix with Anna Belknap as Detective Lindsay Monroe.
While standing apart from the other "CSI" shows, it still features what makes all of them appealing. You still have bizarre murder cases, flashy special effects, and dramatic cinematography. Each episode looks like a mini-movie and is very stylish. It keeps that "CSI" look and feel while giving it a New York touch. There's also an interesting crossover with "CSI: Miami" and a guest appearance by David Caruso.
If you're a "CSI" fan or if you love murder mysteries, then this is required viewing for you...unless you have a weak stomach.
The bonus features are spread between several discs which makes them a bit tedious to access. However, what's here should make fans happy. "Top of the Heap" discusses Season 2 in general and the changes made from the first season. "Rolling with Jamalot" goes into the making of the "Jamalot" episode and the roller derby action. "A New Look from the 35th Floor" gives a detailed look at the lab set from the show along with the executive producer. "Behind the Scenes - Heroes" isn't a look at the NBC series, but a look at the second to the last episode of the show. It features the return of Vanessa Ferlito as Detective Aiden Burn in a unique cameo related to the running storyline in the show. Finally, "Season 2 Ends with a Bang" covers the season finale and the big explosion featured in it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Finally someone not only reviewed the show, but the DVD extras also. I wish all reviews were written as well as this. I have been searching high and low for some information on the DVD extras (I only buy Region 1 DVDs because us Brits always get stiffed when it comes to any extras on the Region 2's).
Rest assured, I'll be reading all your reviews from now on. Thanks again pal :)

This show is utter garbage compared to CSI:Vegas and even Miami.
