The stakes get even higher when a Miami serial killer strikes in Manhattan and ‘CSI: Miami’s’ Horatio Caine (David Caruso) joins the riveting manhunt. Start spreading the news: ‘CSI: NY’ Season 2 is unforgettable.”
“CSI: NY” is not rated.
While standing apart from the other “CSI” shows, it still features what makes all of them appealing. You still have bizarre murder cases, flashy special effects, and dramatic cinematography. Each episode looks like a mini-movie and is very stylish. It keeps that “CSI” look and feel while giving it a New York touch. There’s also an interesting crossover with “CSI: Miami” and a guest appearance by David Caruso.
If you’re a “CSI” fan or if you love murder mysteries, then this is required viewing for you unless you have a weak stomach.
The bonus features are spread between several discs which makes them a bit tedious to access. However, what’s here should make fans happy. “Top of the Heap” discusses Season 2 in general and the changes made from the first season. “Rolling with Jamalot” goes into the making of the “Jamalot” episode and the roller derby action. “A New Look from the 35th Floor” gives a detailed look at the lab set from the show along with the executive producer. “Behind the Scenes – Heroes” isn’t a look at the NBC series, but a look at the second to the last episode of the show. It features the return of Vanessa Ferlito as Detective Aiden Burn in a unique cameo related to the running storyline in the show. Finally, “Season 2 Ends with a Bang” covers the season finale and the big explosion featured in it.
