C.S.I. - Briefly in Detail, 16 July 2002
...Crime Scene Investigation is an invigorating breath of fresh air amongst a television schedule filled with less than ordinary viewing.
Here is your chance to own the first twelve episodes on DVD. The DVD's themselves are housed in a Digi-Pak type of packaging ala Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. There are three discs with four episodes per disc. C.S.I. is filmed in widescreen yet the transfer on the discs is formatted for a regular television (4:3)...The transfer itself is very good. Grain appears a little throughout the episodes but it is not distracting. I am pleased to say that aliasing is not a problem and there does not appear to be any major artefacts. Very pleasing to the eye indeed.
Now to sound. It presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 (stereo)... The voices spoken are clear and easy to understand. The subtitles appear to be mostly true to what is actually being said....
Special Features include cast and crew interviews, a trailer, character profiles and some behind the scenes footage.
In summary the DVD set is a must own for any C.S.I. fan. The video is very good but not perfect. The audio is clear and does the job. The extras are minimal and it presented in a beautifully designed package.
