CSI: NY never disappoints. I love every member of the cast and enjoy watching them solve the crime. I wish NYC really had such a crime lab and cared about each and every victim as the CSI team does in fiction. So many more crimes would be solved and even the poor would get justice.
I have been a HUGE fan of CSI:NY since the first episode. I was extremely happy that it was renewed for a ninth season although for only 17 episodes. I am totally devastated that it was canceled and will be no more except for seasonal DVD packages. I have all of the previous 8 seasons and have the 9th and final season on pre-order! I wish they would have left the show on Wednesday night instead of moving it to Friday night. I think that was a fatal blow for the show. But I am a LOYAL fan and watched it every night it was on. If for some reason I wouldn't be home I would record it on my DVR and/or watch it on demand. Sorry to see the show go and wish all cast members well in all future endeavors!
I am a big fan of this series, and just finished the final season, I only gave it four stars because it was shorter than the other seasons, but it finished on a high note. MacTaylor got his chickeepoo, and everyone else seems to have settled down with a girl friend, which I like to see: Beckett & Castle, Booth & Bones and Jane & Lisbon (finally!). Some of these episodes really grab your heart(or your stomach if you don't like gore) and sometimes identify with their professional or personal problems. Gary Sinese is just superb as Mac Taylor and the others are very well fitted into the cast though I wish "Stella" had remained in the show rather than that other dame that replaced her. I hope someone brings this series back; as a resident of NYC and have worked for years in Manhattan and very familiar with the borough as well as working for the TA on Staten Island (where I live), I like to see the NYPD in action. I also like CHICAGO PD & CHICAGO FIRE: I lived in Chicago as a kid. If You like good police drama and like the technical side of solving crimes, then the CSI series is for you. I got these and other DVDs from Amazon.
The final season is pretty good. By the ninth season the whole production crew and cast knew just what they were doing and what worked. Every show was good. We like this series because the mysteries are always interesting, and we like the characters. The final two shows in season nine - the last two in the entire series - are, frankly, rather smaltzy, feel-good romance stories about the cast, tying up their personal storylines in a "and they lived happily ever after" way, but we liked them. And why not? Not ever series needs to end like The Shield or Breaking Bad.
I thoroughly enjoyed each and every episode to the utmost! I thank Amazon and it's sellers a VAST amount because had it not been for them I wouldn't enjoy half of the entertainment That I do because I wouldn't have access to such GR8 selections of films and shows *(Especially the one's I have missed or care to watch more than once for full emersion into the entertainment I value most!) thanks are NOT ENOUGH TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE in this instant! I highly recommend this to any Gary Sinese fan because Not Only Did He Star In Many Of the episodes, but He Also Produced them! Perhaps more! Thanks Always A Fan of Amazon.com and it's Sellers Galore! LeAnne M Pruitt
At least with the final season of CSI NY, we, the viewer, was not left completely in the dark as you sometimes have happen when a series is not picked up for renewal. It was sad to see this CSI spinoff end as it was so well produced, directed, written, and acted by all involved. At least we got to see Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) not only regain his memory recognition skills but also find love for the first time since the death of his wife on 9/11. Would have been great to see everyone for another season but all of us fans will have to settle for watching the DVD series whenever we want and how often.
This episode of CSI NY continues a story line started in Season 9 Episode 1 involving a serial arsonist, Leonard Brooks, and concludes that story line. In order to understand it and who the serial arsonist is, be sure to watch Season 9 Episode 1 first. This episode involves much more psychology than many CSI NY episodes, as they try to understand the motivations of the arsonist. Do be forwarned that the deaths in this episode are much more twisted than your typical CSI NY episode and involve fire. The corpses are shown in some detail, and as a result of the methods of death, are shown more graphically than is normal for the majority of episodes.
