The first disc of this set of discs offers an opportunity for the audience to experience the initial episode from CSI: Miami that sets up CSI: NY. In this episode the forensic-analyst, Caine (David Caruso) of Miami-Dade crime lab, investigates a grisly double murder, which leads them to New York. Once in New York, Caine begins to cooperate with Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) to find the answers of the callous murderer's identity, as they put their two sharp minds together to solve the crime. In the opening of CSI: NY, the discovery of a female body neatly dressed and with no visible signs of struggle, or harm, immediately sets the tone of Mac's bleak world. To further the desolated atmosphere of CSI: NY, the audience learns about Mac's late wife who died during the 9/11 attack in Manhattan, which affects his sleeping patterns.
CSI: NY has a number of interesting characters, besides Mac, such as the dedicated Detective Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes) and Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo).Read more ›
I liked the fact that, in this CSI, the viewers got some of the characters' backgrounds early on, rather than waiting forever (such as the 5 season wait to find out why in the world Sarah from Vegas gets so belligerent when spousal abuse is involved). Each of the characters on New York, as with the first two shows, is unique, and they all complement each other nicely. Stella (Melina Kanakaredes) is a strong, capable woman who works alongside Mac rather than simply taking orders from him. Danny (Carmine Giovinazzo) is brash, funny, and slightly mysterious (viewers get tantalizing hints of his past, although there is still a lot left to be discovered), but there is no denying that he is a good CSI. Aiden (Vanessa Ferlito) is smart and sassy and doesn't take any crap from anyone (particularly not Danny). Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), the main detective on the show, seems like one of the team, as does coroner Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper), who becomes a CSI in the second season.Read more ›
So when CBS announced in 2004 that it planned to launch a second spinoff show from its mega-successful CSI, many fans might have thought that it might have followed right along the same path as L&O: Trial by Jury. So what happened?
In 2004, CSI: New York was launched and it followed right in the footsteps of its big brothers CSI (or CSI: Vegas) and CSI: Miami in establishing itself not as a lesser of the two set in a new city but one that could stand alone just as well, especially seeing that it would have the fan bases of the more established CSI shows to build on.
CSI: NY focuses on the New York City Crime Lab, led by Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise), a police officer who's dedication to the job is overshadowed by the grief that still lives within him due to his wife being killed in the 9/11 attack of the World Trade Center. Mac's demeanor is like a cross between his counterparts Gil Grissom and Horatio Caine, only more equal to each.
His team includes Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes), tough talker Danny Messer (Carmine Giovanazzo), young up and coming CSI Aiden Burn (Vanessa Ferlito, who left the show in the recently begun second season), medical examiner Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper), and street officer Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), who has little patience for anyone that doesn't want to talk.Read more ›
