Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The ratings powerhouse that is the original CSI remains one of television's not-so-guilty pleasures, and viewing all 23 episodes of Season 4 without the tension-breaking release of commercial interruptions will certainly keep DVD viewers in a constant state of suspense. The 2003-4 season brought new challenges to the forensic investigators of the Las Vegas Police Department, with interpersonal disputes occasionally making things tense for Gil Grissom (William L. Petersen) and his crack team. For example, in the season opener, "Assume Nothing," a series of double murders points to a serial killer, and team member Nick Stokes (George Eads) arouses Gil's ire when he discusses the case with an old friend who leaks details to the press and compromises the investigation. Previously, Gil has declined to date his subordinate Sara Sidel (Jorja Fox), and as the year begins, their working relationship appears to be affected. Later in the season, in "Butterflied," Gil becomes obsessed with catching the killer of a girl who resembles Sara. Ex-showgirl and ace investigator Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) has her own troubles in "Jackpot," which forces her to decide whether she wants to accept money from her corrupt father. And, of course, there are the usual bizarre cases to keep the team on edge: "Fur and Loathing," in which the victim is a man wearing a full-body raccoon suit, brings the investigators into contact with people who have oddball fetishes. In "Homebodies," Gil finds a woman's mummified corpse stashed away in a closet. One of the best episodes in the group, "Eleven Angry Jurors," is an old-fashioned "locked room" mystery: The lone holdout is murdered during deliberations in a sealed chamber. Some wags thought CSI started losing steam last year, but don't you believe it. This Jerry Bruckheimer-produced show is still running on all cylinders, as these 23 exceptionally engrossing hours demonstrate.

Having already gotten the first three seasons of the Vegas show (as well as a few of the DVD sets of the spin-off shows for Miami and NY), I've really fallen in love with the CSI franchise. This particular season DVD set contains probably what I consider some of their "darkest" stories, which in a way points towards the tone of the subsequent seasons and up to the current Season 10 episodes now showing. Nonetheless, it's still entertaining as much as shocking. And things really begin to take a personal turn for many of the key players of the Vegas team in this season...in short, outstanding is all I can say about it, and I'm glad to include this in my DVD collection. Stand-out episodes (in my opinion): "Butterflied," "Bad to the Bone," "Paper or Plastic?", "Fur and Loathing", and the finale "Bloodlines"
