In the eighth season of this popular television drama, suspense runs high as Las Vegas’s top crime scene investigators, led by Gil Grissom (William Petersen), find the cases they’re trying to solve becoming more and more difficult to crack. Whether they’re in the cool casinos of the Vegas strip or out in the hot Nevada deserts, these specially trained detectives prove that they have what it takes to get the job done.

THE AV REVIEW:

“C.S.I.” still manages to keep going strong, and it picks up by grabbing the viewer by the throat and not letting go either. Grissom (William L. Petersen) and his team race against time to find and save Sara (Jorja Fox) as her life hangs in the balance, which eventually leads up to her departure from Vegas, as well as a heartbroken Grissom. Things don’t get much better for the crew as Catherine (Marg Helgenberger) receives a threat, and Warrick’s (Gary Dourdan) life begins to spin out of control, leading him to be charged for murder, and concludes in the explosive season finale which only promises more changes to come. While some moments may come off as a bit hackneyed, C.S.I. manages to still be spectacular thanks to the depth that the principal characters get in this eighth season. Even lab-man Hodges (Wallace Langham) gets an episode to shine as he and the lab techs play some “murder games” in the inventive episode “You Kill Me”.
 
The season premiere “Dead Doll” features the team racing against the clock to find Sara who has been left for dead in the heat of the desert. That was one of the best episodes. My next favourite episode was A La Carte where they investigate a beheaded teen from a go-cart accident. Then in Cockroaches and Lying Down With Dogs, we start to see Warrick in a whole different light – drugs and alcohol and he’s framed for a murder in these two episodes. The final show for this season is called For Gedda in which Warrick is accused of murdering a famous Vegas gangster and even he is uncertain of his guilt or innocence.


The television show is decent, but I feel like they’re hitting a wall. The A/V Quality is decent, but I can’t keep getting past the fact that I’ve seen these cases before. The special features don’t do much to improve this. The entire affair feels like a case of too little too often. Oh well, it’s still worth a rental.
