"I've just purchased CSI NY season 5, and I am thrilled. Each season's episodes of the show get better & better. The quality of the scripts and the great actors are what make a dvd set for me. Like most people, I really don't care whether there are Bonus Features or Special features. Sure, they're nice to have, but I don't buy a dvd for that! I love this show more & more each year & I guess most tv viewers agree with me, because this show is in the top 20 in ratings every week!!! Keep them coming!!!"
This spin-off certainly stands alone as an outstanding produ

"The feel here is totally different from the mother series--CSI. Gary Sinese and ALL the cast are great, and really come together as a unit. Very original stories. Purchased through Amazon. Highly recommended."
An entertaining, creative and strong season for "CSI: NY"

"Killers using avatars to lure people to their doom. A runner shows up at a firesale on wedding dresses and ends up dead from a simple push. A Nazi selling family heirlooms from the Holocaust. The fifth season of CSI:NY continued to have fascinating, challenging stories and changes that would effect the characters personally. This remains my favorite of the "CSI" shows (I dislike the overwrought "CSI: Miami" compared to the more down-to-Earth "CSI: NY" but that's me. When David Caruso takes off his sunglasses and throws out those snappy one-liners it reminds me of a bad Shatner moment).
We have a crew of great guest stars including Ed Asner in an uncharacteristic role (at least this late in his career although he might have played this type of role earlier in his career before "Mary Tyler Moore" and "Lou Grant"--which by the way where IS "Lou Grant" on DVD?).
The fifth season looks quite good although there is a noticeable video noise on a number of episodes but, not a surprise, given that there are four episodes on eath DVD. The one issue I have with the fifth season is the lack of commentary tracks. I realize it doesn't matter to everyone but when I watch an episode for a second or third time I like to hear the behind-the-scenes drama/issues that the production crew have.
We get a number of solid extras here which fans will enjoy but I hope that Paramount/CBS will resume including commentary tracks for the next season.
