CSI: NY “Exit Strategy” Review

CSI: NY "Exit Strategy", Season 7 Episode 22 – CSI: NY began it’s seventh season finale this week with a thrilling drug bust on an apartment in Hell’s Kitchen. It was an odd way to begin "Exit Strategy", as it really had no bearing on the rest of the case. All it really did was serve as a way to freak Mac out and put him on this personal mission of self-discovery.

SPOILER ALERT for those of you who have not watched the season finales of CSI: Miami or CSI: NY. If you haven’t caught up on your DVR for the other CSIs, you can skip to the next paragraph. It’s really impossible to review CSI: NY in a vacuum, when it really has to be compared to its counterparts. Here, the similarities are so strong I feel like it has to be discussed. The CSI: Miami finale ended with Horatio being shot, and the cliffhanger there was whether or not he’ll live until next season. The CSIfinale had Langston being accused of murder, and the cliffhanger there was whether or not he’ll admit to the murder or not. In this finale, Mac is overwhelmed by the wear and tear his job has had on his life and questions whether or not he wants to continue being a cop. Three shows, three leading men, all of them having different crises that jeopardize their roles on the show. I know it’s not CSI: NY‘s fault that it airs after the other two, but it definitely feels pretty stale and unoriginal by now. Read More...
