Product Description


The second season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation consolidates the show's well-deserved popular appeal, while beginning to explore (gently at first) beneath the slickly professional surface of the investigators themselves. Gradually we learn more about what makes Grissom and his astonishingly gifted forensics team tick, beyond merely that they are workaholics who seem to require no sleep at all. The show's trademark reveals of vital evidence--be it on the autopsy slab or under the microscope--add a fresh spin to what is, at heart, a good old-fashioned whodunit series. William Petersen brings the requisite air of antiquarianism to a character whose meticulous demeanor and love of order consciously inherits the mantle of Sherlock Holmes (whose vast collection of tobacco samples and bottles of chemicals are the ancestors of CSI's high-tech crime lab). This is a series in which scientific evidence-gathering is elevated to the status of a religion. "When a tree falls in the forest, even if no one is around to hear, it does make a sound," affirms Grissom with the calm assurance of a yogi on the path to Enlightenment.

And just when CSI starts to seem a little too pat, just when the trail of clues seems a little too neat, the show always seems able to throw a surprise or two at us: perhaps there has been no crime after all; perhaps the evidence concerns a completely different crime altogether; or perhaps, as in one brave episode concerning brothers implicated in multiple murders, the evidence simply isn't good enough to convict the right man, even when Grissom knows which one really is guilty. As a result, every episode is simply compulsive viewing. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and Better Oct. 30 2003
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is addictive!
This series is so good that you don't want to stop watching. Since I got Season Two, I have been finding reasons to be near the TV, so I could watch just one more episode while doing something else (multitasking)
Season Two has a lot of the popular episodes, all of which can be watched more than once. The decomp in the bag, the one where they team up with CSI Miami, the tragic model, the body farm, and of course the scuba diver in the tree.
Waiting anxiously for Season Three to be released

After the incredibly innovative first season, expectations for season II are understandably high. No disappointments here. Storylines get stronger, character nuances become second nature to the actors and we begin to feel an affinity for the characters. I'm still amazed by the excellent casting for CSI (especially in contrast to the horrible acting on CSI Miami - it's a good thing we at least now have Navy CIS to tide us over) which lends itself to some nice character development.
The DVD is an improvement over the first:
1. 16:9 Anamorphic widescreen (finally)
2. More features than the first DVD
1. Still no subtitles (it says closed caption - still haven't found it) again an incredible irony given the lead character's diminished hearing
2. Annoyingly slow main menu (zoom - it's a room! zoom - it's a computer! Jeez - all I want to do is get to the episode selections)
Still it's a must have for any CSI fan. Somehow the writers always find a way to keep the storylines fresh.
5 stars for the show. 4 stars for the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Addicting July 1 2004
I'm going to say what everyone that wrote a review about this TV show has said, CSI IS THE BEST SHOW ON TV!!!!! There is like nothing wrong with the show at all. The characters are just awsome (especially Nick and Sara) and the cases are wicked. My favorite from 2nd season is probably 'Bully For You" because of the case with Nick and Sara and the dead body in the bag and how sick they got with it. I love how this show shows a case and then has something personal for the characters like Nick when he said something that his babysitter did to him when he was little and Sara when she met EMT Hank for the first time. All the actors on this show make their characters so believable that it doesn't feel like you're watching a TV show and that you know them personally. My whole family and i love this show so much and we watch it together. My brother and I watch about two discs a day it's so much fun!!! If you want to buy any season of CSI buy this one it's the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season Two delivers!!! June 27 2004
The second season does not drop off from the first great season of this wonderful show. Episode 213 "Identity Crisses" is by far the best episode yet. Great plots and interesting cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent TV at it's best June 2 2004
I love this show! It's intelligent, totally absorbing, shocking, surreal and draws you into the plot from the opening credits. I love the characters and have especially enjoyed watching them develop over time. I think it's the best show on TV right now and never miss an episode. Okay, so we all know that the show uses 'entertainment licence' to go beyond the science available today, but at least it portrays a realistic direction it will take. If it's great entertainment you're after that packs a punch, don't go past these boxed sets. I bought all three seasons and eagerly await the next.

If you are the type of person who loves suspense, thrills, drama, and are the one who likes to figure out "who done it" this is the show for you. If you've seen CSI season one, you have got to get season two. I am the proud owner of all three seasons of CSI. The first season was great, the second was awesome, as for the third.......well take a guess, a definite 5 stars, heck if I could I'd combine them all together and give the entire set (1st, 2nd, and 3rd seasons) 15 stars, heck I'll add an additional 5 stars to make it an even 20 when I get CSI season four.
