Storyline

CBS's successful CSI franchise gets transplanted to the Big Apple. Cases involving sewer rats as witnesses, a victim whose head was slammed in a pizzeria oven, and murders of commodities traders, and--of course--a Red Sox fan. CSI: NY is a bleaker, grimmer version of its Las Vegas and Miami cousins. The team is made up of a pleasantly New Yawk but indistinct cast of characters. The teams leader Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise), is a former Marine from Chicago. Mac is a veteran of the NYPD who lost his wife on 9/11, and as such must work to rebuild his personal life while supervising his team. He is organized, efficient, dedicated, and very proper in his management style. His second in command for the first 6 seasons is Detective Stella Bonasera (Melina Kanakaredes), Stella is half-Greek, half-Italian, and entirely New York City. She helped Mac through the impact of his wife's death and has been by his side ever since. She is a savvy investigator, yet she often speaks before she ...

Trivia

Real life police and prosecutors have noticed due to the CSI effect real-life criminals have started covering their tracks and are destroying potential evidence against them before leaving crime scenes. One example of this is when double-murderer Jermaine McKinney broke into a house and killed a mother and daughter, he then proceeded to wash blood away with bleach, burn his clothing to destroy evidence, blanket his getaway car to avoid blood transfer, remove his cigarette butts from the scene and attempt to dispose of the murder weapon. McKinney was a big fan of CSI, and this type of calculated behavior is no isolated incident as some rapists have now begun forcing their victims to shower after an attack in order to wash away any forensic evidence.

"[These shows] are actually educating potential killers even more," says Head of Los Angeles Homicide Division Captain Ray Peavy. "Sometimes I believe it may even encourage them when they see how simple it is to get away with on television." Peavy isn't alone in his thinking. "[Criminals] do clean up, and they tend to clean up much more carefully now," said Linda Johnson, a crime lab director at Jefferson County, Alabama. "A lot of them know they can use bleach and different detergents to mask our ability to take blood." See more »

Goofs

"The CSI Effect": After lifting a fingerprint from a crime scene, and scanning it into a computer the results invariably comes up with a conclusive match to a suspect, This isn't the case in real life as much of the comparisons are done by comparing fingerprints by sight. See more »

A thrilling mystery TV Series since the era of profiler
25 January 2006 | by julieladaSee all my reviews

At last a mystery TV series which intrigues you and pushes you to guess the assassinate!! i was a passionate viewer of profiler and now -even though with many differences- CSI:NY has made my Sunday nights as exciting as the time profiler was broadcast!! the cast is fantastic - Melina Kanakaredes is also Greek, Gary Sinise is better than ever . I must admit that the other spin off is at least disappointing (what kind of crime can you find in Miami except or drugs?. I don't find a reason for watching the Miami spin off when the NY is great and makes your mind work.!!!

keep up the good work guys
