C.O.N.W - Criminal Offence Not to Watch!,
By A Customer
This review is from: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - Complete Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
CSI's first season is unrelenting in its immediate appeal to the audience;not only does it succeed where many other similar shows have failed infinding the right balance between characters and plot, its ultra-hipmanipulation of new technology perfectly compliments the show's gravitas.
Whilst typical British dramas tend to over-emphasise characterinteractions and forsake plot, CSI manages to give the viewer enough of asense of each character's personal life to understand their motivations,whilst maintaining the gradual reveal of each crime. (Special mentionmust of course be made of Jerry Bruckheimer/Anthony Zuicker's passion forthe music of Paul Townsend, used to great effect in this classy serieswhich never loses its cool).
Classic cases include:
CRATE 'N BURIAL
PLEDGING MR JOHNSON
FRIENDS AND LOVERS
WHO ARE YOU?
SEX, LIES & LARVAE
TO HALVE AND TO HOLD
TOO TOUGH TO DIE
SOUNDS OF SILENCE
JUSTICE IS SERVED
THE STRIP STRANGLER
This DVD set presents the show in fullscreen and has little or no extrafeatures, nevertheless its interactive menus are smooth and impressive,and isn't presentation in full boxset always more appealing than the halfseason equivalent?
