This season continues with involving storylines and contiunes to develop the characters as we have come to expect. The balance between the personal lifes and investigations again is perfect, unlike almost anything else on TV. The plots and themes shown throughout the seasons in many ways seem far to good for TV. This is certainly worth buying and you get the bonus of CSI New York episode one thrown in. If you like CSI this is a must buy and if you don't like CSI i'm guessing you havent really seen it yet.
The scripts have more of a bias towards the CSI team as personalities and, most importantly, the crime plots are once again superior to anything else on TV; the best example in Part 2 being 'Early Rollout'.
One factor of the DVDs which continues to be a disappointment are the episode commentaries. They are, with the exception of 'Bad to the Bone
', awful. Rather than give interesting insights into the episode production, there is too much friendly chit-chat between the contributors and way too much time spent saying how good someone was or what a great job so-and-so did.
I think if a commentary was done by, for example, William Peterson we might learn more; he is after all one of the Producers, so why doesn't he contribute ?
Aside from this small gripe, the episodes themselves are spectacular and the production values excellent.
The 5-part 'production process' featurette is quite interesting.
Fantastic entertainment !
It's also William Petersen at his best. That man gets better with every season of CSI he does, never falling back on mannerisms or "actor's shorthand" (as I like to call it - a signature gesture that will win him fans) but always being intense and totally in character.
Also, the stories still are unique and the gimmicks used to solve the crimes interesting and new, too, but as a fan you'd know that already.
There is a special surprise though: you get a bonus-dvd with the first episode of the New-York-franchise: Gary Sinise in a sneak preview of CSI-NY is a nice add-on to the special features one is used to on any CSI-compilation.
