The No. 1-rated TV show returns to DVD in fine form. William Peterson stars in the crime drama set amid the bright lights of Las Vegas. The setting and technological spin used in solving the crimes set this show apart from others in the genre.
Utilizing the HD feed that CBS offers, the second season is shown in a pristine widescreen transfer that makes the previous season’s release look grainy in comparison. Unlike last year’s barren offering, the new set provides three audio commentaries and a handful of featurettes giving additional insight into the program.
This second offering of “CSI” should appease fans of the show, while serving as the perfect launch pad for new audiences.
