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

In the real world, globally across most agencies, the equivalent CSI staff at a crime scene, and in the lab, would be wearing head to toe "forensic boiler suits", similar to those seen in microchip manufacturing clean rooms, to avoid contaminating evidence. The decision not to show the characters in these boiler suits is probably down to a creative decision for the audience to tell the characters apart. See more »

Goofs

"The CSI Effect": We see the main characters collecting evidence at crime scenes as Crime Scene Investigators and then examining the same evidence in the Crime Lab, working as lab technicians. This would not be allowed to happen in real life as it would lead to cross-contamination. See more »

An elite team of Crime Scene Investigators carry out hard investigations and working intensely their twisted cases
26 October 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

CSI NY is an action-filled series about tough cops led Head Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinese as lead role) and his team resolve crimes in New York City , facing off nasty delinquents and heinous killers by means of scientific investigations . This show follows the activities of the detectives working at the Scientific Department , a section assigned to Crime Scene Investigations bureau . CSI officers use the best scientist and technical methods to solve puzzles and catch criminals . It stars various Police Inpectors of a special unit against crime that take down cerebral murderers , scum and low-life criminals , these are the followings : Led by hard-nosed officer Taylor (Gary Sinese , he is most known for playing Leuitenant Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump) , and supported by Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) , Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper) , Don Flack (Eddie Cahill) , Lindsay Monroe (Anna Belknap) , Sid Hammerback (Robert Joy) , Ross (A.J. Buckley) , among others . With almost obsessive dedication towards their quest for the facts , Taylor and his elite team of investigators work various perplexing cases using scientific skills and equipment that are capable of finding valuable clues from the most seemingly unlikely sources . Taylor leads the quest for the one thing that can cut through the lies to the truth and justice , the evidence . As they take on several dangers and risked assignments , confronting unsettling junkies , violent muggers , avaricious robbers , malevolent panderers , bank attackers , extremely villain mobsters , women traffickers , heinous druggies , kidnappers , ominous murderers and several others . They are very skilled technicians , and are a component of the police response to crime . In the numerous episodes there are different and twisted cases dealing with kidnappings , grisly murders for robbing , racism , envy , ambition or vengeance . Together, these investigators collect and analyze the evidence to solve the crimes and to vindicate those who often cannot speak for themselves , the victims .

CSI has the best scientific criminalistic division in N.Y.C. with the best crime lab , solving crimes that practically every other crime lab has given up on . Formed by an expert team , they track down perpetrators using scientific analysis and the occasional leap in logic . This exciting series packs a moving atmosphere by means of shaky camera , videotape and killings reconstructions in a really dynamic style . And even food items are frequently used to simulate injuries to corpses , for example , a roast chicken skin was used to simulate burns . The majority of the techniques and technologies used in the CSI shows are accurate and true to reality . However , in real life , the New York City Police Department (NYPD) Crime Scene Investigators (CSI's) are not detectives and are called Forensic Technicians who work in teams called Crime Scene Units (CSU's). In fact , they do not interview suspects, they do not write or execute search warrants, and they do not make arrests . In real life they are directed around the scenes by the detectives and supervisors, not the other way around . Detectives are commissioned police officers . CSU's are civilian personnel, not sworn and do not have the same arrest powers as police officers . At the conclusion of each case the culprits almost always confess their guilt to investigators that would most assuredly not be the people interviewing . The expert team is headed by Detective Taylor , masterfully played by Gary Sinese , he steals the show as an intelligent and resourceful Inspector . He heads a group of investigators who work crimes amid the rough urban ambient . Taylor is the last member of the NYPD hired during Rudy Giuliani's term as Mayor of New York City and his wife was killed in the 911 attacks . This character was originally offered Andy Garcia and Ray Liotta , but both of whom declined the role . Melina Kanakaredes as the Greco-Italian Stella Bonasera , her legalistic mind allows little gray area in cases , until she is forced to fight for her life , this alters her reaction to cases involving abused women . Stella has a close relationship with her CSI partner , Lab Supervisor Mac Taylor, with whom she shares a deep trust and respect based on endless hours of work , and literally saving one another's lives over the years . Edith Cahill as Detective Flack who bridges the gap between the old-school NYPD and new generation of CSI , carrying with him an intense hatred of the "bad guy" , his approach to solving crimes , while sometimes borderline , is nonetheless always effective . Hill Harper as Sheldon Hawkes , he started the show as a medical examiner, but moved over to field duty as a CSI . Carmine Giovinazzo as Danny Messer who is married to his co-worker Detective Lindsay Monroe , Anna Belknap , whom he calls "Montana" because she was born and raised there ; they have a daughter named Lucy . And Robert Joy as Sid , he is the quirky, crazy, funny ME or Medical Examiner .

The series formed by 197 episodes develop his own peculiar style , full of action tension , thrills , chills , twists and turns . It is with plenty of suspense , restless movements , violence gore and guts . The action moments are compactly made and fast moving . The robbing , kidnappings , heists , and murders deliver the goods filled with non-stop action , shocks , intrigue and suspenseful . The series follows the C.S.I Las Vegas wake and its sequels and rip-offs such as CSI Miami , CSI Cyber , CSI immortality and CSI NY.
