"When you come empty,were going after your badge."
22 June 2013 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Being one of the biggest fans of CSI and CSI:NY i must say that CSI:NY is the second best TV show watched in the CBS TV history. The show ended this year and a lot of fans are saying watch the finale season of CSI:NY and the finale to this show.But no one said watch from the beginning.I watched complete Season 3,4 and 6 all episodes in CSI:NY years back they were my favorite TV shows.Since our favorite show ended it this year 2013 and a lot of people were saying watch the finale i start from the beginning were it all begin and i am impressed with how the show started it. Season 1 isn't so bad like i was excepting to be. Now i know who Detective Aiden Burn is and from which actress she is played and it was actress Vanessa Ferlito who played her, we both share the same date of our birthday with Denzel Washington. I read articles and i realized about Vanessa Ferlito why she was replaced with Anna Belknap and Vanessa wasn't fired she left the show after Season 2 started it because she was separated from her home and her friends and she didn't want to drive to New York to film scenes for the episodes. She did made appear in three episodes in Season 2.

CSI:NY wasn't shared from Adam Ross (A.J. Buckley), Lindsay Monroe (Anna Belknap, Dr. Sid Hammerback (Robert Joy) and Jo Danville (Sela Ward). The four characters weren't the main cast of the show and the main corner office from the beginning was Dr.Sheldon Hawkes and not Dr.Hammerback.

Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise),Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes),Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo),Aiden Burn (Vanessa Ferlito),Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper) and Detective Don Flack (Eddie Cahill) were the main cast of the original show that aired September 22, 2004 of the first season.

Best Episodes in Season 1 are Supply & Demand E#1.20 and Blink E#1.01.I noticed that E#1.18 "The Dove Commission" and E#1.22 "The Closer" were directed by Emilio Estevez my favorite actor from my childhood i always loved him and he directed really good episodes so far. I wish he would directed them more.

Episode Supply and Demand is actually about the most dangerous drugs on earth a supply Heroin. After a bag full of heroin is mistaken with the wrong bag full of a heroin in the mall and turns up by a high school girl 18 year old Jordan Benson (Lindsay Parker) instead report the heroin she decide to selling it to the kids from her school she knew and 2.teenagers end up dead and 1. almost died of a doze of Heroin if Danny wouldn't find her in time and saved her. 1. kid was beaten and shot to dead, the other kid died overdose and one almost died.

Benson's parents do everything to protect her own daughter after she was selling heroin.Her dad cut her off for her punishment. He froze all her bank accounts and credit cards so that she becomes all broke.Her bank account was $18,127.54 until it fall down to $ 55.54 in 4.months. Credit card was secured by her father Martin Benson six weeks ago he payed $10,425.69 and $10,647.92 twice and than he froze her bank account.I love the quote when Don Flack says to Stella 's line "it's the uptown of version of been grounded" Don says: "It's tough." After did Jordan open the bag and saw what she walked away with it she figure it out how to regain her life style back that father cut her off. So she start selling a coke and next day she had two buyers and she sold them to Paul and Andrea.

I loved how all the details about the girl Jordan Benson was explained from Stella Bonasera. "Open that moment everything that happened was a serious stupid mistakes made by a spoiled shallow little girl" - Stella Bonasera.

Stella Bonasera is a queen of all detectives. She is heart and soul to this show. Detective Stella Bonasera rocks!

Martin Benson made a complain against Stella , this was the forth complain about her in three years and Internal affairs: Chief Dwight Hillborne told Mac to keep Stella away from Bensons, lucky Stella never listens and she put all pieces of the puzzle together. She is so smart and the most popular in all CSI. I loved when Diane mother of Jordan threaten Stella about her badge and said to Stella : "When you come empty,were going after your badge." Stella was really cool at this line if it would be me i would say back: "Try it." and go to do the job i was payed to do.

By the end of the episode Mac helps Will's father caring his son's things to his home. I love this episode they showed us what drugs can do to a single innocent person and how dangerous they are.

This Episode is awesome and really brilliant with twists around in the story. Best episode in Season 1 today I love it. 10 out of 10.
