I Just started watching this series and I am up to episode 12. I love the cast, particularly Gary S. and since I live in NY I am very
familiar with the settings and feel at home watching this. It took some getting use to because though I am a big CASTLE fan and
that is set in NY too, this show seems to be darker and much less humorless. I hope as the show goes on that I will find a bit more
human feelings between the characters develop. Still, I find it good enough to order the first 7 seasons on DVDs; goes along well
with my BONES, CASTLE and MENTALIST sets. Now I am watching season one on my Video Library. I do recommend this to
my fellow telly watching crime fighter viewers.
Since I wrote the above review I have finished season 1 of CSI NY. I think it was splendid; in some ways it reminds me of CASTLE, being
set in Manhattan and visualizing the landscape with very similar photography. But it is more gritty, like CHICAGO PD, than Castle without
much of the humor, though the last few episodes seem to humanize the cast better. I happen to think that Gary Sinese is splendid in the chief
role of boss and the other cast members do well also. I have ordered the entire 9 season DVD sets from Amazon and trying to be patient waiting
for them. I think it takes some getting use to the darker stories in the programs if you are used to Bones or Castle, but watch it: it will
grow on you. Though I live in NY and love the city, I don't really like Manhattan though this show makes me almost like it. Its a hell of
a town though the Sears Tower is still technically taller than the "Freedon" Tower. But the subways are nice. enjoy!
