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 --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

C.S.I. season two shows more of Nick Stokes (George Eads), which I'm not sure why. Season three shows his personality to be a watered down yes man to Grissom or Warrick (depending on the day). The characters of Dr. Al Robbins (Hall), and Greg Sanders (Eric Sezmanda) become stronger. Over all, great episodes abound in both of them. Season two is better then season one. It's a natural progression for an excellent crime series on par with the "Dragnet" or "Adam-12" of the past. The character of Gil Grissom could very easily be compared to Joe Friday from Dragnet.
Pick up season one first if you are going to buy this and haven't watched the shows before to get your bearings on the season. If you have watched it on TV, go to season 3.
If you're not familiar with the series, start with season one, and spend many compelling hours with the Las Vegas criminalistics lab. Almost of the episodes are exceptionally well-written, an unusual feat for a weekly TV series. The characters are evenly and consistently developed, and the series is consistently outstanding, particularly when viewed in-order and commercial-free. I can't wait for season three to release on DVD in March!
I just want to say that i LOVE CSI!!! I have the 1st season and watched it in oh...2 months...but when i got the 2nd season on DVD i watched it in only 5 days!!! 5 DAYS!!! WOW!! but seriously...CSI is the #1 most watched show in the USA, Canada, the UN and Sweeded (i think)
but anyways...the main 8 people are Jorja Fox who plays Sara Sidle, George Eads who plays Nick Stokes, Marg Helgenberger who plays the ex-stripper Catherine Willows, Gary Dourdan who plays ex-gambler Warrick Brown, Billy Petersen who plays Gil Grissom, Eric Szmanda who plays the adorable and goofy lab tech Greg Sanders, Paul Guilfoyle who plays Detective Jim Brass, and Robert David Hall who plays coroner Dr. Al Robbins.
i would recomend anyone who likes crime shows and likes to try to see if they can figure out who killed who before the cops or scientists to start watching CSI. i started watching in the middle of the 2nd season and i'm totally hooked..they are now on season 4 and i LOVE this show!!!!
