4.0 out of 5 stars ...if not for the price., September 2, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Season 8 (DVD)
okay, some may say, "4 stars for a superb season of CSI?" well, as a season, CSI - The Complete Eighth Season is above a five star. with a gutwrenching opening episode in "Dead Doll". two of the funniest episodes ever in "You Kill Me" and "Two and a Half Deaths", the heartbreaking departure of one of our favorite CSI's (not saying for those who haven't seen), a terrific crossover episode with Without a Trace, and the scream inducing last minutes of the season in "For Gedda" where one of the CSI's life may and probably is over. so why 4 instead of 5 stars? The price. Seasons 1 - 7 all had around the same price, but seasons 1 - 7 had like 23 to 25 episodes each. Season 8 has only 17 episodes, only 5 discs and pretty much the same amount of extras as previous seasons. Okay, they do give us the Without a Trace crossover episodes in full, but $85 bucks guys? what are the discs made of? Gold? I love CSI more than any other show, but i'm very unhappy with CBS decision to make the dvd sets the same price as previous sets (Miami and NY both have the same pricing as prvious seasons as well.) I'm aware that the strike is to blame, but price the sets more to the content. say $65 for a short season. I'm just saying.

I agree- nearly $100 for a shortened season is a bit outrageous, but the answer to "why do they charge that much?" is, quite simply, "because they can." If people are paying it, they are going to charge it, and evidently enough people are willing to pay that price to get these DVDs. I'm hangin on and hoping they will come down in price; otherwise, this is a season of CSI I won't be owning anytime soon.

It is not CBS it is Paramount all the way!! Paramount has been gouging people on their DVD sets for the longest time and are they worth it? I am not buying any of the short seasons due to the writers strike because they will go down when they don't sell. Based on principle of basic marketing the demand is generated by customer confidence and when that is lost the demand will decrease with the price, Eventually!!

I agree. The shortened NCIS season was much lower than we paid for previous seasons--and that was appropriate given that it had fewer episodes. We are waiting to purchase CSI as well until the price drops to something more reasonable (though it pains me to say that ... we have every other season on the shelf...)

Paramount has been screwing "Star Trek" fans for years, so why not screw fans of "C.S.I. too..... both of these shows have a huge fan base, so why not..
