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.
However, the one thing that bothered me about this DVD set was the image quality. Compared to past seasons of CSI:NY and even this year's releases of CSI and CSI:MIAMI, season eight of CSI:NY has a noticeable dip in quality, possibly due to excessive image compression. Some images are blocky (artifacting) and some jagged images (aliasing) appears in some of the action/tracking shots. I know that this problem isn't because of my equipment, as I own (and tested) the other CSI shows and seasons on the same gear with no other problems.
A curious problem to an otherwise great DVD set.
If this sort of thing doesn't bother you (and admittedly, after two episodes or more, your eye adjusts) by all means get the this set; CSI:NY is a wonderful show. However, its image quality does hurt the overall presentation.

The series is really in the downward spiral by this point. Everyone just seems tired and spent. I will admit that the 9-11 intro episode was well done, but as for the rest of the... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
