The second spinoff from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and was introduced during an episode of CSI: Miami when Horatio Caine journeyed to New York City in pursuit of a murder suspect who fled Miami. It is much bloodier than the Miami version, and was filmed in a hard blue light until Season 2, when CBS President Les Moonves wanted to make the show appear "less cold".
I have refused to watch any of the csi series...any of the criminal minds, L.A Law, any of the legal, or crime shows. Too me they all seem alike and just don't keep my interest. However, CSI NY has been my only exception...There is something different about it that makes it stand out from the rest! Gary Sinises' character really stands out and he is what made that difference. I am really missing this show but excited that he will be in Criminal Minds Beyond Borders. I am hopeful that his presence will define that show a bit differently than the original series in the same way it did with CSI NY. I just hope that they dye his hair in the new series at some point. He is a very attractive man and the gray really ages him more than is needed.
