New Series post #1  quote:





Gary Sinise as Det. Mack "Mac" Taylor
Melina Kanakaredes as Det. Stella Bonasera
Carmine Giovinazzo as Danny Messer
Vanessa Ferlito as Aiden Burn
Hill Harper as Dr. Sheldon Hawkes
Eddie Cahill as Det. Don Flack


CSI: NY stars Academy Award-nominee, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Gary Sinise and Emmy Award-nominee Melina Kanakaredes in a crime drama about forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in The Big Apple. Det. Mack "Mac" Taylor (Sinise) is a dedicated and driven crime scene investigator who believes that everything is connected and for everyone there is a story. He and his partner, Det. Stella Bonasera (Kanakaredes), a workaholic and a jack-of-all-trades, share a passion for the job. They lead a team of experts amid the gritty and kinetic city that never sleeps. Their team includes Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo), a Brooklyn-born investigator with rugged good looks, an unflappable spirit and a colorful family history, and Dr. Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper), a reclusive coroner who walked away from a promising surgical career after the traumatic loss of two patients. Joining them is homicide Det. Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), an edgy, hardcore investigator with a quick wit, impressive forensic insight and limited patience with potential suspects. Rounding out the team is Aiden Burn (Vanessa Ferlito), a smart and sexy investigator whose chameleon-like behavior allows her to adapt to any situation at any time. These skilled investigators, who see New York City in a whole different light, follow the evidence as they piece together clues and eliminate doubt to ultimately crack their cases.

I'm a CSI: Las Vegas fan. Never liked the Miami show. I'm really looking forward to the NY show, and hope that it take off like the original. Gary Sinise is a great actor... (and I think that mystic is in love with him )

I like both of the CSIs, and think this will be pretty good too. Of course the Las Vegas one is better, but lead CSI detective of Miami is good for a laugh

I don't really think we need another CSI. But I didn't think we needed another Law and Order either and now I really like Detective Goran, so who knows? I just hope this one lives up to the original CSI, I would hate for it to be a watered down version.

I think the new locations can bring some more interesting scenery and creative forensics into the story. I mean, there's only so much you can do in Las Vegas (more sand?), and in Miami (murder on the beach eh?), so NY will give it a bit of a change...

Though it'd be almost like a Lincoln Rhyme book

Yes... it will be up there with the ranks of NYPD Blue. After all, that show has been on for a ton of seasons, and there is STILL much more they can do. NY is so very big. I hope that they come up with some great story topics. Like, something connected to 9/11. I would be interested in that.

Hmm... 9/11 is a pretty sensitive subject to most, I think a lot of shows in NY have actually been skipping around the subject, so I doubt they'll create a crime connected to the incident. Though, like you said, it would be interesting if they could.

Nah, I get so sick of hearing about 9/11 sometimes. Especially when TV series use it in their stories. It's like they're just trying to cash in on the fact that people died and it's not really neccessary to keep reminding the people who went through it.

Would you really want Horatio from CSI Miami going on about an event where your family was killed? I wouldn't

I agree with you. We don't need another CSI. I only like the original. I like it because it was unique, and while there was very little ACTION so to speak, it was always very interesting.

I think CSI is trying to franchise in the same fashion as Law & Order. I'm not thrilled about that, because I don't think it will work a second time. I think CSI might come crashing down upon itself. I hope I'm wrong...

that's exactly what I love about him Delta... the guy is such an idiot sometimes, the writers are probably laughing at everything they make him say... always has a come back for everything:

1. "it was the greatest thrill" "my greatest thrill will be seeing you go to gaol"
2. "this was his second mistake" "what was his first?" "murder..."
3. "if you're watching someone else's back, tell me, that way I can watch yours"

He's got a heap of dorky lines in every episode

Review:

TV Review: 'CSI: NY'

Let's stipulate the obvious, that New York is not Miami. Nor is it Las Vegas.

That said, there's an awful lot of similarities between "CSI: NY," the latest spinoff from the production team that has brought us "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "CSI: Miami." So much so that two thoughts immediately leap to mind.

The first is one of sheer admiration for how well the production team has mastered the various elements that have made this franchise a ratings winner. Never have there been such great close-ups of eyeballs, contusions and intercranial bleeding as are provided by the "CSI" family, including "CSI: NY." The second is one of sheer wonder as to how much appetite exists in TV land for what is, in many ways, the same show three nights a week. Does anyone remember "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and what happened when ABC spread it like wallpaper on its primetime schedule?

So crowded is the current program landscape with crime show procedurals that "CSI: NY" will go up against "Law & Order," the granddaddy of the genre. CBS has successfully challenged NBC on other nights, notably Thursday, but with counterprograming. The strategy here is far less apparent.

To those who produce the show -- and perhaps to a certain part of the loyal audience -- there are differences enough by virtue of a new cast and a new look to the exterior footage. Signing Gary Sinise, an actor's actor, to the lead role of dedicated-to-the-point-of-workaholic Detective Mack "Mac" Taylor should be considered a coup for any series.

Sinise is capable of greater expression with his face than many actors can muster with a Shakespearean soliloquy. And it's a good thing, too, because "CSI" ground rules allow for enormous range only where evidence is concerned, not emotions.

Melina Kanakaredes plays the other lead, Detective Stella Bonasera, also a driven detective whose life is her job, and vice versa. If you saw her on "Providence," you know she's capable of evocative performances. If you didn't, well, you might have to wait until the next series.

Producers suggested that, unlike the other "CSI's," this one would have notably more "character moments," times when actors reveal greater dimensions of the characters they portray. Based on the premiere, you'd have to put this under a "CSI" microscope to find significant differences.

Up to its usual standards of deliciously grisly crimes, the premiere has Taylor, Bonasera and company tracking down a serial killer who possesses medical know-how and an appropriately twisted mind. Mostly, the story is ingenious, though you do have to suspect that finding a camera with incriminating pictures buried in trash on a scow bound for a landfill is maybe just a little too lucky. Then again, luck might be what "CSI: NY" needs most.

Cast: Detective Mack "Mac" Taylor: Gary Sinise; Detective Stella Bonasera: Melina Kanakaredes; Danny Messer: Carmine Giovinazzo; Aiden Burn: Vanessa Ferlito; Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Hill Harper; Detective Don Flack: Eddie Cahill; Dr. Leonard Giles: Grant Albrecht.

Executive producers: Jerry Bruckheimer, Anthony E. Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue, Jonathan Littman, Danny Cannon, Andrew Lipsitz; Co-executive producer: Pam Veasey; Producers: Eli Talbert, Bruce Golin, Deran Sarafian, Robert D. Simon; Co-producers: Timothy Lea, Janet Tamaro; Creators: Anthony E. Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue; Director: Deran Sarafian; Director of photography: Dermott D. Downs; Production designer: Carey Meyer; Editor: Barry Leirer; Music: Bill Brown; Casting: Risa Bramon Garcia, Brennan du Fresne.

Hmmm....I don't share the same opinion. I find the show slow, dull and boring. I think the writers need to jazz it up a bit. Gary Sinise is a fine actor but his character is uninteresting. That's just my opinion, thouh.
